Marko was my first customer and unfortunately I did not have a completed Guest Book in the house setting out all the local vineyards and restaurants. The villa is on the Strada del Vino - Monferrato - so many great vineyards are within a few minutes drive! The enoteca in Vignale Monferrato - 5 minutes away - is regarded as one of the best in southern Piemonte but unfortunately was closed for lunch when Marko visited. There are numerous great restaurants within a 5 - 10 minute drive, some difficult to find, which are now detailed in the guest book - and many guests since have noted these and how good they are, and, also quite a few more.
About the owner
We have had a long association with Italy having lived and worked in Milan some years ago. Our property search ended in Piemonte, one of the most beautiful and accessable regions in the country. The unrivalled cuisine and wine , spectacular views and proximity to the Ligurian beaches, the lakes and mountains makes it a truly wonderful place to visit.
