About the Owner
About Loes Floor
We are both very fond of Italy and we would like to spend our holidays in Piedmont. And in the future, we would love to live here. For now, it's a great family home for us, our teenage children and their friends.
Loes Floor purchased this apartment in 2011
Why Loes Floor chose Asti
We live in the Netherlands. We are both very fond of Italy and have been looking for a second home for several years. The last years we spent our holidays in Piedmond. We decided that this was the region where we wanted to buy a property because of several reasons: we like the landscape, it's easy to get there by plane and by car (1 day only), the summers are more gentle than in other parts of Italy. It is still a bit undiscovered Italy. And last but not least, the slow food, the excellent wines and the cheese is excellent here.
What makes this apartment unique
on top of a hill, surrounded by vineyards
a private swimming pool and a shower and sunbeds at the pool
fully equipped kitchen
