Have you discovered the Monferrato? You really should. This area is less known than Langhe but should NOT be overlooked. It offers a great alternative to areas such as Alta-Langa that can be heavily compromised by being very isolated.
- The area just north of Asti is a gem!
Take the towns of Moncalvo, Montemagno, Portacomaro, Cunico, Castangnole Monferrato, etc - all outstanding, and the landscape is spectacular. Go visit and you will see I'm not exaggerating. It's a little Tuscany but without being overrun with tourists and property price are much lower, in fact, even lower than the Alta-Langa so you can buy without the compromise of having to travel those terrible switch-back bendy roads every time you need a loaf of bread.
We took a ride out this Sunday afternoon as so often we visit for work but only fly through without the time to really experience it.
The area is full of hill-top towns, castles, rolling hills, vineyards, sunflower-filled fields, wineries, big skies, friendly people, great restaurants, pizzeria, and outside bars. And it's all in easy reach of Asti, Moncalvo, Milan, and Turin. Perfect!
Interested in something in this area? Let me know, we'll find it. We can get great little houses in need of restoration in the small hill-top towns, farmhouses and we even have a beautiful hotel if you have €5m to spend 😉
Here are some houses we have for sale in the area.
Beautiful farmhouse for just €550,000
This house is just beautiful in every way. 20 minutes from Asti, large land, fully restored, room for more living space, beautiful gardens, wonderful wine cellar, and a large party/dining room.
And it's only €550,000 (negotiable). Life changes are forcing the owners to sell their loved home. Come view and you will fall in love. It's very special.
