Of course drinking the local wines and sampling great food also helps their experience!

Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana's seclusion does not mean that it’s miles from civilisation, it just feels that way. Travelling is easy with airports, train stations and major motorway links close by.
Enjoy exploring the undiscovered tourist free nearby towns and villages and experience authentic Italian life in one of the biggest wine growing regions in Europe. Historical places such as Alessandria, Asti, Alba and Aqcui Terme, or larger cities such as Turin and Milan are all an easy commute either by road or train.

Vacation Rental Property

All rooms and apartments are situated at the main farmhouse on a hilltop 219 metres (689 feet) above sea level about 1.5 miles from the village of Castelnuovo Belbo [near Nizza Monferrato]. This commanding position provides views over rolling hills covered in fertile vineyards. Dotted between the vineyards are orchards and woods. This natural habitat attracts wildlife and it is home to deer, martens, pheasants, and the occasional boar. On clear days the vista also rewards viewers with a stunning panorama of the Alps including the famous peaks of Mt. Rosa, Mt. Bianco (Mont Blanc), the Matterhorn and Mt. Viso. The environmentally friendly salt water pool has been carefully situated to make the most of the generous views. It's a picture postcard scene that rarely disappoints.

Following are the standard accommodation options, though your hosts always endeavour to meet your specific needs – just ask. Choose between self catering apartments or B&B rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
