About the property

Spacious and quiet house set privately in its own five acres in UNESCO vineyards

This beautiful self-catering villa is hidden on a hill with stunning views overlooking vineyards, hazelnut plantations and, in the distance, the Swiss Alps. With four bedrooms (sleeping 9-10 people), Casa di Gallo is a relaxing get-away for people who enjoy home from home comforts, light and spacious rooms and comfortable beds with luxury bedding. There are lovely walks directly from the house through the Moscato vineyards, or up to the local village. Or just relax on a sunlounger, enjoy the views and wildlife, play table tennis, darts or petanque (boules) and enjoy al fresco meals under the vine-covered pergola with a cold glass of Prosecco and some of the local foods from the wonderful Italian food markets.

About Susie Gates

We are a family who love food, wine, nature, peace, quiet and the authentic Italian experience. We have travelled and lived all over the world but this is a corner of paradise that we love. The views, the nature, the food that tastes superb. Piemonte has it all.

Susie Gates purchased this farmhouse in 2007
