"Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana" - Castelnuovo Belbo, Italy
Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana is situated about 1.5 miles from the small village of Castelnuovo Belbo, on a hilltop 219 metres (689 feet) above sea level. Situated in one of the major wine growing areas of Italy, Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana is a working vineyard with nearly 10.5 acres dedicated to Barbera and Moscato grapes. Our commanding position provides views over rolling hills covered in fertile vineyards. Dotted in between the vineyards are fruit orchards and woods. This natural habitat attracts wildlife and it is home to deer, pine martens, pheasants, and the occasional boar. On clear days the vista also rewards viewers with a stunning panorama of the Alps including the famous peaks of Mt. Rosa, Mt Bianco (Mt Blanc), the Matterhorn and Monviso. It's a picture postcard scene that rarely disappoints. Vecchio Podere Santa Cristiana's secluded location adds to the sense of peace and tranquillity that our guests find so appealing. Clever design has insured that the vineyard and farmhouse have been built to benefit from the natural hill contours that beautifully camouflage us from the rest of the world; you will not spot us unless you know where to look.
Yet we are not miles from civilisation; it just feels as if we are. Travelling around is easy, with airports, train stations and major motorway links close by. Large towns and cities such as Asti, Genoa, Acqui Terme and Alessandria are all an easy drive away, and we are only 10 minutes from the historic town of Nizza Monferrato. Turin is about an hour away, and Milan can be reached in 90 minutes: but if you prefer to avoid driving in Italy's major cities, both are easily reachable by train. Head south for 30 miles and you reach the stunning Ligurian coastline of the Italian Riviera. Alternatively, go west to enjoy the splendour of the mountains; our nearest ski resort is a 90 minute drive.
The farmhouse offers the following accommodation:
The Gardens and Grounds
All our guests can enjoy our modern, sunny swimming pool and the tranquillity and peace of our vineyards and private gardens, including the furnished portico area that's a great place to have that long cool drink as you watch the sunset.
What our Guests Say
Our guests tell us that they enjoy experiencing the natural rhythms of the working vineyard, and that the seclusion and tranquillity of the surroundings is extremely relaxing. One guest recently described their experience as 'feeling relaxed right down to the bones'. Of course, sampling the local wines and eating great food also positively influences their perceptions. We encourage our guests to give us feedback on our services and their experiences, and have a guest section on our website where they can post comments and other information. Our aim is simple: to offer guests superior levels of comfort and service that are great value for money. We provide all the modern conveniences that discerning guests require, but try hard to ensure that they do not detract from authenticity of the natural surroundings. It is nature that owns this place, we are just nurturing it for a brief moment in time; we invite you to share some of that time with us.
