About this listing
This house is for me a space a little bit isolated from the exterior world, a caravan withouth weels, a boat withouth sea, a small piece of nature to share with guests and friends.
A room in a colourful, fresh, relaxed house, few steps far from the city center, but outside the city.
The house is just at the side of the city, in the countryside, with courtyard and garden (very wild), 5 minutes far from the city center by car, 20 minutes walking.
Guest can use kitchen, old bicycles (but tell me in advance so I can prepare it), washing machine, and if they like they can meet local culture. There are availables maps, and informations about territory and all events of the city.
The house is very simple, basic, and all fornitures are made by recycling art. Everything is clean.and there is not a wardrobe, but you can use fruit boxes availables for this purpose.
For any need you might have, will be a pleasure for me to try to fulfill them.

Cris was a wonderful host and the house was beautiful, if you like the simple things in life like sharing good food and wine then this is the ideal place to stay. I was made to feel very welcome. I was taken out to explore Casale and meet some of the locals and some interesting nights out in the surrounding area... I would definitely recommend staying here.
La casa è semplice, accogliente e pulita, e Cris è una persona molto ospitale e gentile, che mi ha anche invitato a trascorrere la serata con i suoi amici. Sono stato bene.
Cris was an absolutely wonderful host. He went way beyond expected, and welcomed me at the railway station and gave a me ride to his house. His house was exactly as it is depicted in the pictures--colorful, joyful and happy. Cris's instructions for what to see in Casale Monferrato were perfect. We even experienced a cooking event together! I have wonderful memories from my stay, and would love to come back!
Cris was the perfect host! He came to get us because we were lost in Monferrato and couldn't find his house, then we had dinner as he had prepared a very good meal for us. He was very nice and friendly and made us feel welcome! The house is a very nice old fram house and we slept in a comfortable beed in a nice and cozy room. Everything was clean and Cris provided us with everything we needed. The next morning he gave us useful tips on where to have lunch and made us coffee :) I would definitely reccomend this to anyone who is in Monferrato and wants to discover the surroundings!
La maison est bien colorée et chaleureuse, même quand il fait froid ! Cris nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de sympathie, et nous avons passé une excellente soirée, ainsi qu'une bonne nuit, chez lui !
Cris is probably the kindest host I've ever met. He is always happy to help, to give some tips about sightseeing and things to do. His house is perfectly situated just outside of the city, in the calm of the countryside, but the city center is at 15 min walk.
I would gladely come back to his place next time I'm in Casale.
Cris is a wonderful host and a fantastic cook! He is one of the most giving and selfless people I have ever met! His house is more rural and a bit hippy, but very colorful and creative. He has the most adorable kitten and wonderful friends. We really enjoyed our conversation with them and our time there. Thanks Cris!

About the Host, Cris
I promote a sustainable turism in Monferrato. I also promote culture and art.
I'm a traveller, and I like to meet people and share with other cultures.
Enjoy the wonder, the wonder that life is, the wonder that existence is, the wonder of the sun and the sunlight and the trees bathed in the golden rays. Experience it. Don´t put a question mark, let it be as it is."
