Overview

About the property

Lovely CountryHouse felt like home from home!Gavi/MonferratoArea!Away from it al

Casa Carlotta is a lovely country house, recently completely renovated, located in the splendid setting of the Alto Monferrato(UNESCO HUMAN HERITAGE)in the center of THE CASTLES ROADS and of THE WINE DISTRICT. Here you are in the middle of the nature, surrounded by pine forest;in front of the house there’s a pleasant field and nice garden,all fenced, a beautiful private pool (with a delightful banquette)where you’ll lose the sense of time.

The outside area offers several points of shade for dining and rest: the big covered portico, the wonderful mulberry, or next to the swimming pool where there’s another nice living area with a wooden gazebo/ veranda with beach loungers, deck chairs and parasol for those who are shade-loving.

Just under the house, crossing a big field, you can directly reach nice little lakes where you can swim, but walking or driving for 5minutes, you’ll be in the wonderful area of “LAGHI DELLA LAVAGNINA” inside the NATURAL PARK OF CAPANNE DI MARCAROLO,lakes along which you can cycle,run or simply walk enjoying the great views.This is the heaven of bikers, runners and hikers.

And last , in this area there were gold mines in ancient times, and also now you can explore the Gorzente rivers in research of these traces.

The owners live only 10minutes away so if there is a problem or need info they can be there to help very quickly and they are very helpful.

They can organize for you: typical dinners in pleasant farmhouses with:Truffles,Bourgignonne,other local products.

They can also introduce you to private castles and winemakers for wine tasting. We are at 15minutes driving to Gavi and its excellent wine producers ;

or inform you about HORSE riding lessons;TRUFFLE hunting; MTB and JEEP tours through the panoramic and countryside roads guided by the Alfredo,the owner( upon request) or they can suggest you an official MTB guide.

The Ligurian RIVIERA, with Portofino, Camogli, Santa Margherita and the famous "5 Terre" are quite near.

The house is between the beaches of the Ligurian Riviera and the culture and high fashion of Milan. Near to Acqui Terme nice SPA town and Serravalle outlet(fashion brands). In an hour, you can lie on the sunny shores of the Italian Riviera. The famous Monaco and Montecarlo and the Cote d’Azur(France) where are situated Cannes, Nice and Saint Tropez are reachable in less than 3 hours driving.

About Donata Zaccaria

My husband (Alfredo) and I (Donata) are always ready to give you a warm welcome and I am always a 'sms away' to help you, if you need anything, or we can arrive in few minutes, as we live at 5minutes driving.

We recently completly restored this house (it was a barn when we bought it), and we lived here for a summer to check everithing works , while we rented our villa in Mornese(also advertised on OwnersDirect) 5 minutes away from CasaleggioB, where we usually live all the year. Here, we had a wonderful summer, guesting many friends(who are looking forward to come back), discovering many walk paths,chilling out in any corner of the property and by the pool, great for cooling off. Alfredo went for many MTB trails, and me and our dogs went for many walks around the Lavagnina Lakes. There always something to do or to discover, here you’ll never get bored.

Donata Zaccaria purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Donata Zaccaria chose Casaleggio Boiro

These are peaceful and relaxing places where you never get bored:walks,horse riding,cycling, truffles hunting,tastings of excellent wines of local production. The location of the house is great as you can get to the coast in an hour or you can just go up to the beautiful Lavagnina’s Lakes to enjoy walking and the views which are sensational, or you can enjoy lunch by the pool and have a relaxing afternoon in the garden.

This is an ideal place where you can chill out and rest, during summer/spring surrounded by flowered gardens and in autumn/winter in front of a beautiful fire place.This is the perfect place where everyone wish to take refuge in.All around there are just hills,rivers,and valleys where is very easy to find fallow deers and pheasants crossing slowly the street without running away. This is a peaceful and quiet place,according to all guests coming here,but,if you like,in 15min you can reach the crowd of the town, in 40min Ligurian Riviera, 1.30h the most famous Italian shopping town,Milan. The air smells and feels deliciously clean and fresh, a great escape from the city.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We completely restored this old barn using local and recovered materials and giving attention to internal and external details. The interior is well decorated, very particular the 1st floor with nice wooden ceilings, also in the graceful bedrooms with rare mezanines.

The house is extremely well equipped, we are used to do lots of cooking (from the kitchen there is a good view of the pool and garden,great if you have little children) and we love to eat outside on the big dining table with again great views of pool ,garden and valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Donata´s house is wonderful, well maintained and carefully furnished. The kitchen is one of the best equipped we´ve ever had in a holiday home-and we use to travel a lot. It contains allmost everything you can imagine to be in need of for preparing a perfect Italian dinner. The house is situated in a wonderful green and quiet garden with beautiful flowers and surrounded by nature, offering splendid views. In the evening you can even see deers grazing next to he house, boars and fireflys. We loved the pool and the outside area with lots of nice places to sit and enjoy the silence and views. Donata is a perfect host, cordial, relyable , flexible and unostentatious, what we appreciate very much. Grazie mille per tutto e alla prossima! Cordiali saluti ”

Meravigliosa dimora nel verde

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato 3 giorni strepitosi in questa dimora di campagna divinamente ristrutturata ed arredata con grande gusto. Casa dotata di tutti i comfort e di una bellissima piscina. Gli spazi sia interni che esterni sono assolutamente una gioia da vivere in compagnia. Noi eravamo in 10 e siamo stati benissimo. grazie a Donata ed Alfredo per la deliziosa ospitalità e gentilezza.

Owner's Response: E' stato davvero un piacere conoscere Martina e i suoi amici. Sono un gruppo delizioso , davvero simpatici e disponibili e i loro complimenti ci hanno scaldato il cuore. I loro bambini sono molto educati ed hanno lasciato una casa pulitissima. Speriamo davvero di riavervli e che la ns casa diventi un loro ( e quindi nostro ) momento di incontro fisso.

Beautiful farmhouse, very private location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and cosy renovated farmhouse in private location but close enough to Gavi and other nice areas to visit. Very nice and big swimmingpool with relaxing area. The house has many places in- and outside to enjoy good food and wine. Bedrooms are simple but comfortable. The hostess Donata is super. She gives information you need and helps to book dinner in restaurant.

Lovely Farmhouse in a Secluded Area

Beautiful Home for a fabulous and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Myself and seven members of my family stayed one week and found the property to be everything that we could have hoped for.

The views are beautiful, everything so quiet and the surrounding area wonderful to explore and hike. The layout and amenities are perfect for groups. An open air kitchen and living area, huge dining table for big dinners, the kitchen was stocked with everything we could want for preparing meals; in the living areas

four nice sofas, bathrooms plenty of towels, comfortable beds, beautiful garden....I could go on and on. Trust me, if you stay here you will NOT be disappointed.

We weren't able to use the pool due to the time of year (January) but in the summer time this would be a great feature.

It was very pleasant to arrive and find some local cheese and wine that was left for us to enjoy by the owners.

We were extremely pleased with our choice and were more than satisfied with it.

Thank you Donata for a fabulous holiday!

Great holiday in a lovely house !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property with the old-world charm and the updates of today (exactly as advertised in pictures), fully equipped for our stay. A great place to spend time together! We were 4 couples, eight of us agreed this was the perfect place for a get-away holiday. The house is set up that you have wonderful valley and garden views, it's been completely renovated and there has been a lot of attention to detail. We spent many evenings in front of the fireplace sipping a delicious local wine and grappa. The open areas were great for meals, conversations, and relaxing.

We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone!

Donata and Alfredo were very friendly and accommodating, meeting us at the property, giving us a tour, and ensured we had all our needs met. When we return to Northern Italy, we will hope to stay here again!
