About the property

At 10 minutes from Asti and 20 from Alba: in the heart of the native Asti Langhe

The farmhouse is located in the best position to visit the Monferrato and the Langhe (12 km from Asti, 26 km from Alba). It has a sleeping accommodation for 15 and 3 bathrooms. It is a typical farmhouse dating early 1900's (ancient residence of the Morozzo della Rocca Counts) and is located in a peaceful oasis, surrounded by 9000 sq.m of own land. In the wide garden, you can find a stone barbecue, sun loungers, tables and chairs to dine al-fresco. Everything needed for the barbecue is provided. For the children's joy, in the garden, there is a swimming pool over a spacious and secure land (4.50 x 2.20 m x 84 cm). The house has a satellite flat screen TV in the lounge, a smaller flat screen TV in one of the bedrooms, free Wi-Fi, antitheft, heating. At the ground floor you will find two living rooms (one with seating for 12 and the other for 6), a modern and equipped kitchen, wide lounge with log burning fireplace and a half bathroom (washbasin, toilette, bidet and washing machine). Upstairs, there are 3 spacious double bedrooms (of which one has an extra single bed) and one bedroom with two single beds. On the first floor, there are two bathrooms: one with bathtub and shower, toilette, bidet and washbasin and the other with hydro massage shower, toilette, bidet, and washbasin. The following will be provided: linen, towels, shampoo, shower gel, toilet paper, and a hairdryer. From the staircase, you access the large mansard where you can find a double bed and 4 single beds. The house is ideal for 10 - 12 people but can accommodate up to 15 (besides the 12 people there's an extra provided per person per night). There are two travel cots available and two high chairs for children under 2 years. The farmhouse is very spacious (300 sq.m) and is suitable for groups of friends and families. The mansard is always enjoyed by the bigger children and is the ideal place to put them to sleep! Minimal rent is for 2 nights, 2 nights during Christmas, Epiphany, Easter, 2nd of June long weekend, in July and August minimum a week (from Saturday to Saturday). In summer, if you travel with children, in the surroundings you will find pools immersed in between the hills with games, riding school and, at Asti, a fun Aquapark. For whomever that really wants to live the land I advise my guests to take guided tours to the wine warehouses of Langhe and Monferrato for some tastings. In the house, you will find a list with phone numbers and location of the best restaurants and trattoria of the area. A fancy restaurant or a simple trattoria, here you will eat (and drink) extremely well, at affordable rates! Nearby, SPA (inside a beautiful relay located in the countryside but also open to outside), a riding stables, tennis and golf, tours on foot, on bicycle and Nordic Walking. Dogs are welcome but cannot access the upper floor (the sleeping area).

About Giordana Ruatasio

I am a naturopath dealing with natural food. I am from Alba and have always loved this land, rich with stories and gastronomic traditions. In my free time, I like to walk, take care of my plants, play tennis and arrange lunches and dinners with friends.

Giordana Ruatasio purchased this villa in 2004

Why Giordana Ruatasio chose Rocca d'Arazzo

It is a typical countryside dwelling dating from the early 1900's of Rocca D'Arazzo, an original feudal small village. I decided to rent this house because it is quiet, immersed in a lush green setting, surrounded by trees and flowers. It is located in an ideal area to visit Langhe e Monferrato, ideal places to spend an unforgettable holiday weekend or week. The farmhouse preserves the ancient atmosphere and has been restructured taking in consideration this characteristic. The staircase accessing the bedrooms upstairs is made in stone, the ceilings have brickwork and the floors are part wood and part terracotta. The wide bedrooms have a sober and warm atmosphere: the modern and functional fittings are in some bedrooms and other typically peasant in other rooms (wrought-iron beds). The bathrooms are new (with a hydro massage shower). The mansard is very big, has exposed rafters and sleeping accommodation for 6. This is a house suitable for groups of friends that want to live together and enjoy their time here, couples that want to spend days of absolute peace in the green nature, families that wish to have a large garden for their children to play outdoors. It is beautiful house to see and live. Thanks to its large bedrooms, the double dining room, and the large living room with chimney, it can comfortably accommodate 10, 12 or even 15 people. I have spent many weekends in this house, organizing dinners for friends and I have wonderful memories. During summer, it is fresh and you can sleep extremely well, there is no need of air-conditioning! A few kilometres away, between the hills, you can find pools and tennis clubs, golf and even a Yoga school, at 8km, in the open countryside, a beautiful SPA with interior and exterior pool. For anybody that loves biking and Nordic Walking in the surrounding area you will find nice paths. Now I want to put it at guests’ disposal that can enjoy the conviviality, nature, the good food and wine.

What makes this villa unique

From each window of the house, you can see the countryside and surrounding hills. There are no houses near, even if the village is only at 800 metres. It is quite and surrounded by a land filled with trees: pines, magnolia, walnuts blackthorn, pears, fig tree, and pomegranates. In spring and summer, we have geraniums, dahlias, violas and surfinia that beautify the house facade. To cook you will find in the garden, sage rosemary, thyme, mint and marjoram. In the morning and during the day, the only noise you will hear will be the bird’s song. During the evening, cricket and cicadas.

Giordanna est une personne très accueillante et disponible. Elle répond très rapidement à vos mails ou SMS. La maison est agréable au calme, très bien équipée. Nous étions 12 dont 6 enfants, chacun y a trouvé sa place. Les chambres sont spacieuses. Les enfants ont bien profité du jardin et de la piscine. Ce fut une semaine très appréciée par toute la famille.
