Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Bagnolo Piemonte, Province of Cuneo, Piedmont
Casa Fontana is a retreat where you can get away from it all.

Sited at 700m altitude, nestled in the foothills of Mount Monviso, Casa Fontana sits in its own 3 acres of land - one acre of which is a managed wood. This traditional northern Italian house has been lovingly restored to a very high standard, but remains simply furnished, remaining true to its rustic roots. The property will be available for its first guests from the beginning of June 2015. It is suitable for habitation all year round.

APRIL 2017 UPDATE. FINALLY, THE HOUSE HAS WIFI!

The house is located five kilometres from the town of Bagnolo Piemonte. To reach the house you drive through a beautiful mountainous forest (all tarmacked roads) to find a private and peaceful place, to relax and enjoy. The house and garden of Casa Fontana overlook the plains of Piemonte,...

About the neighbourhood
The immediate area around Casa Fontana is rural and decidedly quirky. It has its own unique character that needs to be experienced. Although English is little spoken, the local people are very friendly, and you will have few problems in the local shops or supermarkets. The local town of Bagnolo Piemonte has a number of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants, a supermarket, a Post Office and a pharmacy. The very lively market is held in the town Piazza on a Wednesday morning.

There are a number of charming ancient towns and villages quite close too. Amongst these are:Cavour (10km) – famous for its fruit growing and apple trail. Saluzzo (29km) – with its medieval historic centre, exhibitions and feasts throughout the entire year. Ra

How to get there
Airport: Turin: 78.0 km
Railway: Pinerolo: 21.0 km
Casa Fontana is one hours drive from Turin's Caselle Airport. A car with sat nav (or a very good map) is really essential to be able to find the property. On booking, you will be given more detailed instructions and satellite coordinates on how to get to the house.

If travelling from the UK, Ryan Air offer excellent value flights from Stansted Airport and the flight time from Stansted is only 1 hour and 40 minutes. Flight times from Stansted are normally quite early (7am approx.) but this means you can be in the house by lunch time. Genoa Airport is 2 hour and 20 minutes away. Milan Airport is just over 3 hours.
