About the property

Rent portion of a beautiful stone house dating back to the early twentieth century, renovated with love. Quiet location and surrounded by the green of the Bormida Valley countryside. If you want to relax with your family, go hiking or biking, and practice yoga, this is the place for you. The area is famous for its wines and local food, churches and Roman remains. Possibility to bring children to the river and to the sea (one hour) and to visit Genoa and Turin.

Independent entrance. Large courtyard outside with a magnificent stone porch where there is a fully equipped kitchen and a wood-burning oven to make bread and pizza. Welcoming interior spaces. There is a massage and yoga room. Guests have at their disposal an entire floor of the house, in which there are two large double bedrooms, one bedroom with single bed, one bathroom with bathtub and a terrace with panoramic views.

We remain available if needed. We gladly provide suggestions about the activities to be done in the area (trips to the sea, river, historic towns and villages, restaurants, wine cellars, shopping, ...). Possibility of performing yoga lessons and / or holistic treatments, if there is a request.

The house is surrounded by greenery, in the place reigns silence but at the same time does not feel like being isolated because it is close to the communication routes to Acqui Terme (6 km away).

About Francesco

I have been studying and experiencing the benefits of the yoga lifestyle first hand since 2008. I began my spiritual quest trying to overcome the dogmas imposed by society and its environment. Yoga really got into my system and through the teaching I hope to help others to find a more peaceful and happy life thanks to the yoga lifestyle.

I completed 200 hours of Yoga Teacher training, a lot more on (and out) of the mat! I also have an MBA, speak fluently four languages and write for online and offline blogs and magazines.

Francesco purchased this cottage in 1939

Why Francesco chose Melazzo

We both walk hands by hands to pursuing our dream: live in a rural setting – after many experiences in Italy and abroad, back to the land of origin – where cultivate (in the true meaning of the word) new hopes. Sustainable tourism means respect, travel slowly, enjoy the essentials without deprive the comfort. We would like that the tourists that visit our lands could enjoy some moments of peace and quiet, and find the right time to take delight of the magnificent culture of this area

What makes this cottage unique

Yogam Farm can count on an old stone farmhouse, built at the beginning of the twentieth century and restored with love. We can host singles, couples, friends and small groups up to 5 people.
