The house is located between Genua, Turin and Milan airports the house is situated in the middle of the Italian wine region Langhe, Barolo, Barbera, Barbaresco etc...so enough wines to be tasted. The region has not been spoiled by tourists so if you want to be in a place where the menu's are not in English but still in Italian, come and discover Piemonte.

Golf, mountain biking, walking, wine, horse riding.The area is has quite a few golf courses, the oldest 36 hole golf course is located near Asti, approx. 40 min drive. If interested in Golf I can provide you with some links to all the golf courses in the area. The area is very suitable for walking and cycling a lot of hills though! The whole area is wonderful to discover!! Piemonte is also famous for their wines and truffels therefore there are many cellars/stores dotted around the area. The hilly landscape, the cuisine, rendered varied by the range of culture and small farms , and as there is a big monumental heritage this area will want you to come back again and again and now being part of the UNESCO world heritage it will remain beautiful. Each season here is wonderful, starting from spring with its great burst of colour and all fruit trees full of fruit and views offered by the vineyard dotted hillsides. Summer has a breezy climate and preludes the glory of the harvest of a very tasty aromatic grape. Autumn generally in October shows the arrival of the delicious white truffle and all the wine festivals.

Non smoking: Non smoking house

About Minette

After having studied Italian in Florence I decided I wanted to find an old building to renovate and when i found this I fell in love with the view. There where 4 walls and everything else had to be done to the property from water, electricity, gas, roof, floors, windows etc...i rebuilt a house inside the wine storage place and loved doing it.

Minette purchased this house in 2005

Why Minette chose Province of Cuneo

The view and location, it is difficult to find properties that have some flat ground and i wanted to avoid the zona rossa (planes fly over with spray for the vines) this property location was perfect in a UNESCO area and the view is spectacular, the project was much larger than i was planning but this location is unique. Come and see it and most of all enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

WADSL wifi internet just installed throughout the house and new SMART TV and a Private pool, very large kichen and a fantastic view which you can enjoy while eating your food and drinking a glass of wine. Eating outside in the shaded area looking at the view is when I am just incredibly happy and tranquil. Described by previous guests as wherever you look you see a painting, the pictures don't do justice to the view

The best house I've ever rented - yes, I mean it.

  • 5 of 5

It's simple. I'm 51 years old, British and pretty fussy ... and have been looking for lovely places to holiday for, roughly, 30 years. This is the best holiday house I've EVER rented. The house itself was absolutely fantastic in terms of layout, facilities, bedrooms etc ... we had a family party of 7 people for one week, with an age range of 7 - 90. Yes ... an 83 year age gap ... and everyone was so happy to be there. The rooms and bathrooms were absolutely perfect for old and young alike. But the best thing of all was the view. I cannot possibly describe by email the beautiful pool, the shaded patio, the silence, the gently rolling hills, the hilltop villages, the endless vineyards and ... THAT view. Simply incredible. There are no catches whatsoever. I would go again tomorrow. And, no, I have not been paid to write this review !

Stunning views over vineyards and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa La Tana for the last two weeks of August and had our most relaxed family holiday ever - the views are simply stunning, the house is comfortable with a lovely feel to it and our two children, 8 and 10, loved the trampoline, the pool and the table tennis. Mrs Fouzia made up every bed in the house for the four of us, and two relatives who came to visit, which was such a nice thing to do and there were lots of pool towels for us. We had the most fantastic two weeks, never to be forgotten.

A great place for a holiday with friends: the spacious kitchen allows for joint cooking for a large crowd; lovely shady terrace during the day (which is great in August) and a great pool; really nice area for a quiet and relaxing holiday in August
