The House

The house was born as “maison de campagne” in the 1960’s. It was designed by the owner, a French man originally from the area who used it as a holiday home.

The house has recently been reconstructed and enlarged; however, the characteristic structure of a country house has been conserved. It doesn’t have any particular aspect of a local luxurious house or any typical trait of an ancient farm building, but it is charming and simple as a rural house. It is immersed in the silence of nature and offers an amazing view and a profound sense of well being.

The apartment

The apartment is adjacent to the owners property, it has its own entrance and absolute privacy.

It is composed of a bedroom, a spacious bathroom, a kitchen and a living room with a dining room with French windows.
It’s complete with a patio, a shade and a garden all around.
It can host a maximum of 6 people.

The interior is done by biogriva logomade of massello wood and Perosa stone. The wood is PEFC certified and comes exclusively from controlled foresting and not from deforestation. Furniture production is done without any form of workers exploitation and in line with the correct working conditions. The wood is walnut, only treated with natural oils and waxes. Materials are from the local area (zero carbon foot print) where possible. PEFC certification is a system of assessing the sustainability of forest management with a system of enabling one to trace the wood from harvesting to the finished product.

The kitchen is made of walnut wood.
The adhesives used are vinyl-type formaldehyde free. The shades and colors used are non-toxic, solvent free chemicals and pigments made from plants and minerals.
The working surface is made of Perosa stone from Palmero firm of Perosa Argentina.

Equipment:

  • a stove with 5 hobs
  • electric oven
  • microwave
  • kettle

The bedroom is made of “cirmolo” wood (pine). The pine is only treated with natural oil and wax. It has a particularly pleasant aroma and is a natural anti-moth. It has been found that inhaling this aroma reduces the heart rate and it is therefore good for rest which is why it is primarily used in the bedrooms. No wonder our grandparents cradles were made of this very wood.

It is composed of a wooden double bed, lattice mattress and two nice sofa beds.

The bathroom is made of chestnut wood. Chestnut is a very valuable wood. It is traditionally used in this region thanks to its edible fruits (it is for this reason it is known as the bread tree) and its production of rich clear honey. The counter is made from Perosa stone from from Palmero firm of Perosa Argentina. There are shower, sink, bidet and toilet. There is also a sink for washing dirty clothes.

The living room has a double sofa bed and a TV.
The dining room has a big table which can seat up to 10 people.
The outside patio has a shade and a table with outside chairs.

The apartment doesn’t have air conditioning, even the hottest summer days are pleasantly breezy and it is difficult to find mosquitoes in these parts, due to the altitude and the climate is generally dry and never muggy.
For the winter period, there is a stove in the living room as well as a heating system.

We can now host also in the cozy litthe house: "The Ciabutin" is a romantic accommodation for two people overlooking the vineyard, made in the old and suggestive "Ciabot", in our dialect, the storage of the tools.

The house is composed of ground floor with kitchenette and bathroom. On the loft floor bedroom with two windows and views of the vineyard and panorama towards the hills and the plain. Dehor under the pergola with tables, chairs and deck chairs.
