About the property

House in San Donato Di Mango, Cuneo, Piedmont, Italy - Peaceful Location, stunning views.

Managed by an English speaking Italian couple the house has been used as a second home for over 15 years by its owners and is still used regularly by them for holidays.

Simply furnished, comprising 3 generous double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, open plan kitchen/diner/living room, covered patio, private garden and pool with sun deck.

This semi detached house is situated on the outskirts of the village of San Donato di Mango and is within easy reach of Turin and Genoa airports and also from Milan and Nice by Autostrada.

The small community of Mango is nearby and offers local shops and a true taste of Italian life. The thriving and cosmopolitan town of Alba is about 20 minutes by car with its many and varied shops, boutiques, historic buildings, street cafes, Bars, restaurants, Cinema, Swimming Pool, local amenities, car hire and supermarkets. The town hosts a large outdoor market every Saturday filling the narrow streets of the old town with locals and tourists alike. Alba has a main railway station and is itself only a short train ride from the city of Turin.

Affording magnificent scenery and a cooling mountain breeze the area of San Donato di Mango is a favourite with Italians who keep summer homes where they escape the heat and bustle of the city. On a clear day the distant snow-capped peaks of the Alps of Italy, France and Switzerland form a majestic 270° backdrop to the rolling hills and picturesque villages of the Roero and Langhe valleys. Well known for their fine wines and truffles the nearby Tratoria, towns and villages offer wine tasting and host street markets and festivals throughout the year.

Sehr ruhig gelegene Unterkunft in der Nähe von Alba. Die Betreuung durch die Besitzerin war sehr gut, sehr gute Anfahrtsbeschreibung, einfaches Handling der Schlüsselübergabe. Mit 6 Personen ist der Wohn/Küchen/Essbereich etwas klein. Die Schwankungen der Elektrizität beim Benutzen der Boiler sicher ortsüblich, das Haus sehr sauber. Die Küchenutensilien sind schmal bemessen, sehr nett war es , dass Gewürze, Kaffee, Tee , Toilettenpapier etc. vorhanden waren. Die Pooletage ist wunderbar, der Blick fantastisch. Das Haus ist mit Hund zu mieten, kleine Spaziergänge sind direkt möglich. Das Haus war sehr sauber, einkaufen in Alba gut möglich; dort auch kleines öffentliches Schwimmbad mit Hallenbad- Badekappenpflicht! Man kann das Haus auf jeden Fall empfehlen....der Gas-Backofen ist etwas für Mutige oder Versierte.

fabulous, peaceful, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

A lovely relaxing week was had. The house is immaculate- beautifully equipped and the pool is gorgeous. It is right out in the countryside and has beautiful views all around.It was a little more isolated that we had expected (our first trip to this part of Italy) but the directions to the house and the nearest supermarket ( a very large hypermarket which also has a section for Coeliacs) were impecable and it was very easy to find. We didnt explore much as we wanted a restful week but Alba is close by. We would definitely come back again.

Lovely house, swimming pool and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as expected and the description on owners direct is spot on. We spent the majority of our time at the house which was perfect for the R&R time we all needed. The house instructions were very clear and easy to understand and the hints and tips on where to visit and eat were very helpful.

We arrived late evening flying into Bergamo, the directions were perfect and we had no issues finding the house. However on reflection we would have been better staying in Bergamo and travelling the following morning to arrive after visiting a supermarket.

Our aim of having a relaxing and restful time after a very hectic year for all four of us. Mission accomplished with the help of this lovely house, swimming pool and perfect location.

Great views, enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the house on the hill in Mango. The pool was lovely and the views across the vine-covered hills was gorgeous. Also really enjoyed eating and drinking local produce.

Fantastisk beliggenhed med skøn udsigt

  • 5 of 5

Meget dejligt hus. Det ligger fantastisk med skøn udsigt. 3 Fine værelser. Badeværelset har den svaghed, at man skal stå i badekaret og bruse sig, men der er ikke højt til loftet. huset er et dobbelthus, så man har naboerne meget tæt på og de har hund. I vores ferie var naboerne der heldigvis kun i weekenden.

Huset ligger ca. 1 km fra San Donato, som dog er så lille en by, at der ikke er butikker. Den tætteste egentlige by med butik, bar og spisemuligheder er ca 5 km derfra (Mango). Hvis man skal i et rigtigt supermarked skal man til Alba, som ligger ca en halv times kørsel fra huset.
