About Manuel Spangaro

Manuel & Simona : we fell in love with Casaschino area many years ago. Manuel had been attracted to this area since the 1970's, mainly because of the unique countryside which is simple direct and genuine Three elements he consider fundamental to a serene lifestyle.

Simona joined him in the eighties and she immediately shared his view which was to enjoy a natural environmental lifestyle, and a place to escape daily pressure enjoy the surrounding flora and fauna.

They were able to purchase Casaschino in the late eighties, and since then have continued to restore this small ancient village.

Manuel Spangaro purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Manuel Spangaro chose Alessandria

The property is immersed in nature, allowing visitors to unwind and find their "inner self" while enjoying. The Dolce Vita.

We had the most beautiful summer one can imagine! If you like slow paste, tasty food and wine, beautiful nature, area without tourists, great weather and nice people we strongly recomend this place!! The house is located in this very small village, Casasco, but close to San Sebastiano Curone, Momperone and Tortona. We were able to do our crocery shopping in San Sebastiano and went out for dinner at this great pizzeria in Momperone a few times. We also recomend to eat out in the areas two local agriturismo places!Really great food and great people! The white house itself is renovated with love and it had everything we needed. We were also able to cool down in the nice private pool, which we really needed with up to 38 degress celsius. And having a shower outside overlooking the fields and the lavendel bushes... say no more!! Happy days! Manuel and Simona(the owners) were gentle and helpful, and still they respected our privacy! For anyone thinking about staying in this beautiful valley, you would not be disapponted choosing this place! Enjoy ;)

Lovely peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in this wonderful house with amazing views over the hills and mountains. We found it to be perfect for a peaceful, relaxing break. So very private and beautiful with an amazing pool and sunbathing area. Simona and Manuel were very friendly and helpful, they were even kind enough to give us two bottles of wine.

Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

On arrival at Casachino we were greeted like old friends and at once felt at home.

This is an ideal place to chill out, not overlooked or bothered by any thing or anyone. Great views of the surrounding countryside. The house is old and quirky with a rustic charm of its own. Alarge supermarket in Tortona will provide all you need to hide away (if that is what you want), with local restaurants not too far away.

We had a relaxing time and would return at a later date.

Many thanks to Simona & Manuel for sharing their dream with us.
