Piemonte - Alessandria - CARPENETO


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (Lease only - CITRA CODE: ). Large spaces and a wonderful silence characterise Cascina Moglia which is located on the slopes of a hill where Carpeneto, a small borgo of the Alto Monferrato Ovadese dominated by an old castle, stands. The farmhouse has two floors and has been recently renovated, recalling the typical features and original materials of the Piedmontese farmhouse and, at the same time, rendering the distribution of the rooms more modern and practical. The terracotta of the floors, the wood of the ceilings, the walls and arches with bricks and exposed stone, the stylish furniture, together with the elegant and refined furnishings, make the large rooms particularly warm and welcoming. From the large double sitting room with its beautiful fireplace and large screen for home cinema, you come to the cosy furnished portico which overlooks the large flat lawn at the end of which emerges the swimming pool with the original shape of a small shallow pond. The gazebo near the pool and the other in front of the exit from the kitchen are the perfect places to relax in the shade or to gather for lunches and dinners. A wood-burning oven and a barbecue where guests can have fun cooking in the garden render the convivial outdoor moments of their summer in Cascina Moglia unforgettable, a wonderful oasis of peace and silence surrounded by nature and fully respecting the privacy of its guests.


The main entrance on the ground floor leads into a hallway with a guest bathroom. To the right of the entrance is a bedroom suite with double bed and private bathroom with shower. To the left of the entrance is the large double living room, dining room and kitchen, all three rooms communicating with the large garden surrounding the house. From the living room, a 19-step staircase goes up to the first floor where a corridor leads to a double bedroom with tub, two double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower, one with a loft (where its bathroom is located) and one with a large terrace. A small bedroom with a single bed and a bathroom with shower complete the first floor (with unusable loft).


A slightly bumpy dirt road, at the end of which you can park, leads into the grounds surrounding Cascina Moglia. Next to the entrance door is a beautiful well surrounded by plants and flowers with the unmistakable colour and scent of lavender. Extending for more than one hectare, the terrain is largely flat and on the north front has a large lawn that extends to the swimming pool with the characteristic shape of a small pond, surrounded by the solarium and with a large gazebo next to it. Different species of plants adorn the park, including herbs, with a beautiful bush of rosemary conveniently located next to the wood-burning oven and barbecue. Another beautiful gazebo organised as a dining area is located opposite the kitchen exit with nearby a splendid rose garden offering beautiful flowers throughout the entire summer season. The park of Cascina Moglia is a large green oasis with an enchanting view of the surrounding hills, with wonderful silence, excellent privacy and lots of space to play and run around in just as children and others love to do. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The swimming pool of Cascina Moglia has a particular shape resembling a small pond and is lined in a particular resin with decorative motifs that accentuate its originality. Measuring about 50 sq m and sloping gently to a maximum depth of 1 m, it is particularly safe and suitable for children. All around the pool is the solarium, partly paved in stone with, on one side, the large gazebo with table and chairs providing shelter from the sun and where you can comfortably spend the whole day by the pool. With chlorine purification and internal lighting, the pool is available from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Asti is 65 km away with its towers scattered among the districts and borghi, with the Baroque of churches and palaces, its imposing 19th century porticoes and the Art Nouveau-style of some suggestive views. Here, on the first Sunday of September, the traditional "Palio di Asti" takes place, the first certain historical records of which date back to the distant year 1275. About 65 km away is Genoa, "la Superba", the ancient Maritime Republic that dominated the Mediterranean, reaching its maximum splendour in the 16th century; an unmissable destination for visitors who love history, art and culture or who simply want to breathe in the atmosphere and scents of the caruggi (alleys) of its historic centre near the old port or visit the Aquarium of Genoa, one of the largest in the world.
