CASCINA LA VALLE 10+2

Piemonte - Alessandria - PONZANO MONFERRATO

Description:

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Cascina La Valle is the pearl of the farm estate of the same name. Its geographical position is particularly interesting as it is located within two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the "Sacri Monti (Sacred Mountains) of Piedmont and Lombardy", due to the presence of the Sacro Monte of Crea, and the "Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato". Cascina La Valle is surrounded by 17 hectares of land made up of truffle trees that produce the culinary treasure of Monferrato, the white truffle of Moncalvo certified by the Piedmont Region, as well as vineyards and orchards. The property is accessed through an automatic entrance gate, made of cedar of Lebanon wood, which leads to the courtyard which is artfully illuminated in summer evenings. The property is a typical, late 19th century Piedmont-Monferrato farmhouse, with an older vaulted part dating back to the Middle Ages, on 2 floors for a total of about 600 sq m. The renovation was completed in 2013 respecting the architectural characteristics and was equipped with Capoferri fixtures composed of large sliding glass doors (with electric mosquito netting) from where you can admire the unique panorama that the countryside offers. The rooms are elegant, welcoming and very well-lit. For truffle lovers it is possible to organise an unmissable experience, the “truffle hunt", while fans of Nordic walking, mountain biking, and horseback riding can follow the numerous itineraries created on ecological trails that will lead them to small historic borghi, rich in art, such as the Sacro Monte of Crea. The ancient route of the “Via Francigena” passes right next to the property. Not to be missed is a visit to the infernot, spaces located below ordinary houses and used for the storage of bottles which constitute true works of art born from country tradition and the expertise of master vintners.

Interior:

The house has 2 floors. The entrance on the ground floor leads to a small hallway with a slate staircase leading to the upper floor. On the right is a double bedroom with kitchenette and bathroom with shower; on the left is the large kitchen-dining room with storage room/laundry and a guest bathroom, followed by the large living room with dining table and relaxing sofas, fitted out with glass walls and sliding glass door. The upper floor can be reached via both the internal staircase and the external staircase located next to the large portico. Ascending the internal staircase we find, on the right, a hallway, a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with whirlpool tub while, on the left, a small hallway leads to a twin bedroom with a small en-suite bathroom and separate shower. The twin bedroom is connected via a door to the bedroom of the suite composed of a double bed, bathroom with tub, kitchenette, living room with single sofa bed and exit to the terrace. This suite can also be reached via the external staircase. On the opposite side of the terrace is the entrance to the second suite consisting of a living room with single sofa and kitchenette, a double bedroom and bathroom with hydromassage shower. From the terrace the staircase leads to the courtyard with the large portico equipped for fitness and, in front of it, the portico equipped with barbecue.

Park:

The courtyard in front of the farmhouse leads, in a longitudinal direction, to the 800 sq m garden planted with roses and low plants while tall trees, also of exotic origin such as bingo giloba, and hazelnuts delimit the garden to the south-west that leads to the pool area which enjoys excellent sun exposure throughout the day. Near the courtyard is a large furnished portico, equipped with a barbecue for convivial moments, and a second portico with fitness equipment Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The rectangular swimming pool is located on the far side of the garden in a secluded position about 30 metres from the house and is surrounded by the garden adorned with plants. Measuring 10 x 4 m with a depth of 1,50 m, it is lined in white PVC and has chlorine purification, lighting and a steel ladder for access to the water. The lawn solarium area is equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, umbrella and a cold-water shower. The pool is available to guests from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances


The farm estate with Cascina La Valle is located in the white truffle area of Moncalvo, with truffles present in abundance in the surrounding land owned by the same estate.To be noted is the international truffle fair of Alba and Moncalvo. Of particular environmental importance is the old medieval and Baroque centre of Casale Monferrato, capital of the Paleologo Marquisate (last dynasty of the Byzantine Empire 1259-1453), included in the area of the Sacro Monte of Crea which is part of the Sacri Monti of Piedmont and Lombardy, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The farmhouse is located in the territory of the Salabue (salus bibendi = safe drinking) district of the Municipality of Ponzano Monferrato, known for the healthy condition of its waters since ancient times, as evidenced by the etymology of the name itself. A few minutes away is the old centre of Villadeati with Villa Belvedere designed by a pupil of Filippo Juvarra (the architect of the Basilica of Superga which dominates nearby Turin from above); the old fiefdom of Ozzano; Vignale Monferrato, which in summer hosts a famous dance festival and Montemagno with Piazza San Martino, one of the most enchanting squares in Piedmont. And then there is Casale Monferrato with its fantastic Proto-Romanesque cathedral with five naves and the shops of the historic centre where you can buy typical local products: sweets made with hazelnuts, cold cuts and cheeses. Not to be missed are typical dishes such as tajarin al tartufo and the classic agnolotti which, sampled in the local trattorias, will tickle your palate. There are numerous events organized in the area. Among these the most famous are Il Palio di Asti which takes place every first Sunday of September since 1275 and La Giostra delle 100 Torri di Alba which takes place the first Sunday of October.
