The Space

An independent apartment in a large country house with garden, in harmony with the surrounding area. The apartment has an airy lounge / kitchen with ample work surfaces, ideal for those who enjoy cooking (large marble sink and Genoese style kitchen with 5 burner stove and convection oven 1.20 m and) and an outdoor seating area equipped with table, chairs and arms chairs. Two bedrooms: one with double bed and single bed overlooking the outdoor area-and one with a double sofa bed. A bathroom with shower and bidet.
The apartment has been refitted in 2011 using colors and materials of the territory, in harmony with the surrounding nature.
The green, the silence and peace reign supreme; apartment ideal for a relaxing break.
The large garden filled with more than 100 varieties of roses, fruit trees and veggie garden is accessible and usable by guests. We also carry small gardening courses.
We also provide 2 bicycles for excursions in the countryside to discover even the surrounding area.

The house is located in a fraction-San Maurizio Conzano consists of only 500 inhabitants, a food shop and a church on the hills of Monferrato. The area is characterized by vineyards, hazelnut and characteristic villages in tuff (sandstone). Area famous for its wines (Barbera, Grignolino, Malvasia and Ruchè) and for its gastronomy and history. It 'nice visit in all seasons of the year, although the fall and spring express the best the area.
The house is 8 km from Casale Monferrato (35,000 inhabitants) city center with plenty of history and shops-services and rail station. Here is the highway leading in only an hour or so to the sea in Liguria and in the mountains in the Valle D'Aosta. It is also 100km from Turin as well as from Milan. 30km from Asti and 50km from the Langhe. is therefore an excellent starting point for visiting the north west of Italy!

  • Not in a the city center, not in the middle of nowhere. This "villa" is beautifully located in the fields, between some interesting villages. Close to the villa, you will find many interesting places to visit, things to do and people to meet. Being welcomed by Elisa is a great way to really start your holiday. Her enthusiasm about the surroundings, the house, the garden is lovely. She takes time and immediately you notice that "taking time" can be projected on everything here. Elisa, her father, her mother took time to renovate an already beautiful building into a luxury holiday apartment with an extraordinary eye for details when it comes to the accessories, furniture and all things you might need during your stay in a very well equipped kitchen.

    The garden is great. Huge and very well maintained by the owners. Just a couple of days before our arrival they finished the swimming pool which will ad an extra dimension to the luxury already given to the property. During our stay, the family was around as they do live on the first floor. But mainly on the background, as they respect the privacy of their guests. Meanwhile, Elisa (who does not live in the house anymore) could easily be reached by text or phone for some questions. She very precise when it comes to quick answers. As precise as the little booklet she wrote with all kind tips,trics,restaurants and places to visit. Really helpful and the addresses given indeed stand out. Yes please: do book a table at the restaurant the family runs only 15 minutes away from the house.

    We have been "Airbnb'ing" for a while now. We cannot repeat enough that both the family and the house are highly recommended. This must have been the best place we have visited in a long time. Downsides? Practically none, maybe the mosquitos and other little creates but what else would you expect in a "house in harmony with nature". Elise and her family: please stop by if you ever visit The Netherlands.

  • Wir genossen vier Tage in Conzano. Elisas Eltern sind sehr aufmerksame, hilfsbereite und herzliche Gastgeber. Wir waren sehr dankbar für ihre Tipps. Das Haus befindet sich in schöner Lage, etwas ausserhalb des Ortes Conzano - sehr ruhig und idyllisch gelegen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und lässt keine Wünsche offen.

  • The house of Elisa's and her parents is cosy and the countryside very beautiful. Especially the kitchen is perfectly equipped and all the house is clean and nice. The direct access to terrasse and garden is very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. Elisa is a very kind person and uncomplicated to connect with. Also her parents, who live in the house and usually open it to the guests, are very friendly and helpful people. I recommend this place to everyone who likes nature, a silent surrounding and the possibility to feel home away from home.

  • Bella casa in piena campagna ma a 10 minuti da casale (website hidden) Cucina fornitissima e funzionale, bellissimo spazio esterno, silenziosa e pulita. Perfetta!

  • Honestly, we fell in love with this house and since we've returned home we dream about a house like this to buy in future=)
    The house is well located, especially if you are traveling by car and if you are going to visit some small places like Asti, Alba or bigger one - Turin. But even if you want to enjoy quit village life this house would be also the perfect idea. Near the house you can find beautiful place casale Monferrato with its narrow streets,cozy cafes and small shops (15 minutes by car) and grapery on the hill with panoramic view and delicious wine.
    The house itself is very detailed, well decorated and you can notice that every particular thing was selected carefully.Elisa put a part of her soul while designing this place I suggest and it makes the atmosphere in house really unique!
    And of course I want to mention the fact that Sergio (Elisas' father) was very kind, hospitable and nice.

  • Staying at Elisa's house in Conzano was amazing. We had such a great time in the area. The house is surrounded by sweeping views. Everything in the house was perfect, including a comfortable mattress for us spoiled Americans. Elisa's father met us and he was a very kind person and well versed on what there is to do in the area. He even brought us a bottle of wine from one of the nearby vineyards. I definitely recommend the beautiful house in Conzano for your stay in the region. I will never forget what a great time we had there. Thank you so much Sergio and Elisa!

  • Beautiful, clean and open concept suite in the middle of the Italian countryside. Elisa's father did a wonderful job of setting us up and ensuring we were comfortable. The property is very beautiful on its own and a great place to take walks from. It's a little bit of a drive into some of the areas of the Piemonte we were exploring, but not really a problem.

  • A lovely, spacious, well equipped and completely separate apartment on the first floor of owner's home, surrounded by their gardens. Elisa was away working during our stay so we were hosted by her parents Sergio and Giovanna who could not have been more helpful or solicitous of our broken Italian. We enjoyed a nice meal at the Terre Rosse walking distance from the apartment, and another evening ventured 5km to Terruggia for a meal at Il Melograno, owned by Sergio and his brother in part of the old family house. Do not miss this wonderful ristorante.

  • Our stay in Monferrato at Elisa' s house was divine. The house is full of lovely and thoughtful touches that reflect the caring nature of the owners. Linen bedding, picnic plates and utensils, and tons of graceful details that were indeed a plus!
    Marvelous view of an incredible area in Piemonte.
    The only regret was not having spent more time to really enjoy the house and the quiet and enchanting rolling hills.
    Highly recommend this house for those looking for a break.
    We were truly impress . So nice when people go the extra mile!
    Thank you to Elisa and her parents for creating such an experience of being home...

  • Lovely house in the countryside with well appointed kitchen and plenty of space to work. We used the place for 3 days for a technical company meeting, and it was perfectly suitable!

About
I was born in this house in the countryside, on the rolling hills of Monferrato. Now I live in the city, in Turin, but as soon as I can, I go back to the countryside to walk barefoot on the grass. Food and agriculture are my best passions. I love to travel to meet new people and to share cultures; I love to travel by bus, on foot, by bike, hitch-hiking, a little 'less by boat, train ever... the important thing is to do it with the right spirit. I like to travel and stay in the house of local people, because only then, I think, we can feel a bit 'more travelers and a little less tourists. I love to take cues from others' houses, smell their scents, browse in their own little world and invent parallel stories. I love to stay in the kitchen, no matter where it is or how it is done, the important thing is that it is a place where to cook. I like the "sugar paper" color, jars filled with jams and pickles, the air in my hair and to know that those who spend even just a couple of hours in my house, they fell at home.
