They are awakened with bird chirping in the morning. The first sunlight bathes the picturesque hilly landscape and the mountains on the horizon in a soft light .... an idyll like a picture book. The Cascine Conchette are still a bit like a little island of bliss in our troubled times.
Already the journey to this charming domicile is a little adventure. From the town of Bastia-Mondovi, about 30 km south of the wine and truffle center Alba, winds a narrow lane about 2 km uphill, sometimes narrow and narrow, but always paved. The way to heaven is not a highway ...
Arriving at the top of the cul-de-sac, a unique view opens up over the western hills of the Langhe and across to the southern Maritime Alps. Up here, you will be welcomed by the Cascine Conchette, a small listed group of houses whose history dates back to the 15th century. Century back can be dated.
After decades of decline, it was raised in 1995 from its slumber and made into the jewel that it is today in years of restoration work. With a lot of love to detail and a sure sense for the history of this place a unique holiday home with 5 individual apartments and 2 small houses was built from a dilapidated homestead. Today, the property shines in new splendor. Attractive apartments with beautiful bathrooms and modern fitted kitchens contrast with historical elements, practical details merge with original antiques to create a fascinating combination of yesterday and today.
In addition, a beautiful courtyard with shady seating, a gazebo for convivial events and last but not least a beautiful pool (massage bench and counter current) with sun terrace, loungers and umbrellas invite you to linger and relax with great views. By the pool there is also a hot shower with toilet.
The soul of the house is Gerd, the sympathetic administrator from the Austrian Montafon, who cared for his guests with a lot of heart and always has an open ear for all wishes and questions. On request, it serves breakfast from 4 persons, otherwise there is a daily bread service for a fee.
