Renovated from a traditional farmhouse to a luxury villa that retains a rustic country style. Property comprises of four double bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two living rooms, two studies, one large, fully equipped kitchen, a multimedia room with Apple TV, two cellars (one of which is a small gym), an elevated portico terrace, a 12X5 meter infinity pool, with dressing and shower room, a beautifully curated garden, and breathtaking views. Located on the edge of Camagna Monferrato, near Casale.
Wake up to the stunning views of the rolling Monferrato hills and feel the calming impact of your countryside vacation take effect from the moment you arrive. Our restored rustic family home – Cascina Lina – is located on the outskirts of Camagna Monferrato, a small picturesque village boasting a delightful landscape of soft hills and vineyards from up close, and the majestic, scenic Alps from afar.
The bright and airy four-double-bedroom house looks out onto a beautiful front patio and carefully-curated garden. From there, stairs will take you down to the 12X5-meter infinity pool and pool-side veranda, perfect for daytime lunches or evening sunset drinks. The pool has a jet stream for swimming exercises or a gentle water massage and a dressing room with two showers and a WC is nearby. The pool is open from June 1 till Sept. 15, or later if so requested.
For your afternoon siestas, find your spot on one of the hammocks hanging in the restored stone cascina just facing the main house, and feel the breeze cool you down during the warmest hours of the day. At dinner time, seat yourselves around the 10-seater marble table on the patio just steps away from the spacious kitchen to enjoy that much-deserved meal as another long summer’s day comes to an end.
The ground floor of the house is comprised of an entrance room, a cosy living area, and a spacious, fully equipped kitchen and pantry. From the moment you enter the front door on one end of the house, the carefully-designed arched openings that span all three rooms provide you with a breath-taking view of the surrounding countryside from the kitchen window on the other end. The kitchen has a wood-burning oven to make your own bread or pizza. A bathroom equipped with a washing machine is also found on the ground floor, as is a small study with an extra single sofa bed.
Making your way up to the first floor, you will find to the left a guest room and to the right the master bedroom. The large en-suite bathroom of the master bedroom has a jacuzzi bathtub so originally designed that it will make you feel as if you are – almost literally – floating on cloud 9. Further across and you enter another study whose large arched windows offer arguably the most stunning views in the entire house.
The second-floor attic is divided into two sections, accessed from two separate sets of stairs. On the left side, there are two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom, while to the right you’ll find a cosy, familial multimedia room with a projector and generous selection of DVDs to choose from. An adjoining library which overlooks the second floor study will also keep you busy should you wish to immerse yourself in one of the many books in our vast and varied collection.
One wine cellar is fully renovated living room which allows you to cool off if the afternoons become too hot. A second cellar has some gym equipment.
If you want to venture out from this isolated paradise, it's easy to explore the splendours of the Monferrato region in long walks or easy bike rides. You will learn about the rich history and culture of this unspoiled part of Italy, while exploring its world-renowned wineries, and trying out some of the gastronomically delightful restaurants. The summer months are filled with local village festivals, the autumn with wine and truffle fairs, and the spring with ever-so beautiful rose exhibitions.
And if you still want to venture out further, Monferrato is ideally located in the middle: the middle between the Alp, the lakes, and the Mediterranean; and also the middle between Milan, Turin and Genoa, all at about one hour distance by car.
Your stay at Cascina Lina will be one to remember forever, or at least until you decide to come back a second time around!
The charming local village is within walking distance and has a bar, pharmacy, grocery store and restaurant offering delicious local fare.
