The Space

This is a typical rustic Piemontese medieval two-story house in Mombaruzzo (province of Asti), Via XX Settembre (this is the correct address). The top floor features a large kitchen with marble sink, wooden and gas stove, balconi, a dining/living room, the main bedroom with king size bed and and extra twin bed, with balconi and the bathroom with washing machine. The split level features two bedrooms, each with 2 twin size beds. There are two attics, an orchard and a garage. Almost every room features impressive ancient carved beams. The house is located in the oldest part of Mombaruzzo which used to be the castle -zona Castello-, a few steps away from chiesa della Maddalena. It's a quaint, relaxing, convenient location from which one can start many excursions in the surrounding areas, rich with history, art, ancient churches and monuments, termal waters, antique markets, vineyards, wineries, chestnut and oak woods full of porcini mushrooms and groves where the precious white truffles grows. Mombaruzzo is famous for its superior wines (Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato, Cortese), grappa, and Amaretti (soft almond cookies). Aperitifs, delicious cappuccini, scrumptious pizza and farinata, typical Piemontese cuisine and fine dining can be enjoyed in the several cafes, pizzeria, and renowned restaurants that dot this lovely village.
The train station is a couple of Km down the hill and there is a bus service to Nizza, Alessandria and Acqui Terme.
I noticed that the map supplied by Airbnb as well as the street view are not correct. Please contact me for directions and other details.

Guest has access to whole house.

Interaction with Guests

I am in communication with guests by phone and email when I am not in town. Friends and assistants are available in case of need.

The Neighborhood

This is the heart of the medieval village's castle (zona Castello). I love the medieval clock tower, the red tile roof tops, the rolling hills and chestnut groves. The silence at night is deep and conducive to relaxing and sleeping well.

House Rules

My family home is decorated and kept with love and care. I love my guests to feel at home. For their convenience, they will also find some basic supplies in the kitchen (which I'd like them to replace before they leave). I request them to treat my home like their home.
Feel free to use the kitchen -with most of its equipment, keeping in mind that broken and damaged items will have to be replaced to avoid use of deposit- the beds, the bathroom, the washing machine, hair dryer, iron, ironing board, the living room/dining room and table cloths.
Please do not use personal items stored in some of the drawers of the chest and armoires and in orange room’s closet. Do not use items that are not specifically listed, such as items in china cabinet, oven, projectors, tools (unless necessary to fix or mount something). If you move furniture, it must be returned to its original place. If you install the sun curtains, they have to be removed and stored again. Feel free to read the books or consult the maps in blue and orange room but, please, do not remove them from the house. Supplies in the kitchen and bathroom can be used but they will have to be replaced.
You will find a copy of the House Manuals and Rules in the house with detailed explanations and rules, which I expect to be followed.
When your stay is over, please take the garbage away, undo the beds and place sheets and pillow cases (not bedspreads and covers) in the bathroom, with towels and kitchen cloths. Please leave the house in order and reasonably clean. If you have broken any item and cannot replace it, please disclose that so I can be compensated through your security deposit. Important: Turn water heater, lights, gas, water off and place the keys in the appropriate place or give them to the designated person. If you have questions please contact me.
