A true “gem” tucked away in one of the most distinctive small towns of the Langhe, just a short distance from the iconic wine towns of Monforte d’Alba and Barolo, with stunning views onto the famous vineyards, the hills and the Alps.


The property is an ancient, completely restored country house from the 1700’s with a hayloft turned into a wellness area and a pleasant garden. The buildings’ total floorspace exceeds 500 square meters on a plot of land of 863 square meters.

The main house overlooks the old town’s central square and spreads over three floors and a basement.

The ground floor features an entrance hall, a living room with a billiard table, a sitting room with fireplace, a dining room (all with original rib vaulted ceilings), a kitchen, a pantry and laundry room and a bathroom, as well as a small outside store room. The ground floor rooms have direct access to the garden where it is possible to install a swimming pool.

The first and second floors, accessed on an internal staircase, both contain two bedrooms, with vaulted ceilings on the first and wooden ceilings on the second floor. Each bedroom has its ensuite bathroom.

Not to be missed, an original cellar to store the area’s excellent wines.

The restoration was guided by meticulous respect for the home’s original architectural solutions and materials. Interior doors and pavements have been carefully restored. The garden is bordered on one of its sides by the former haybarn which has been transformed into a wellness area and gym. It is equipped with 2 bathrooms, connections for the installation of a kitchen which makes it equally suitable for residential use. The large windows of the former hayloft make for light-filled interiors.

The house is being offered for sale with furniture and accessories. The choice of furnishings and the interior design solutions have been carefully studied to harmonize with the house’s architecture and character, enhancing the residence’s appeal.


This house in the town of Upper Monchiero was inhabited by famous artists such as the painter Eso Peluzzi after whom the town’s square is named and the composer Ezio Bosso whose soundtrack to Gabriele Salvatores’ famous movie Io non ho paura (I Am Not Scared) has been written in this very house.

The Langhe of Barolo are experiencing a time of keen interest on the part of international travelers and real estate investors. Authentic historic properties similar to this listing are hard to find nowadays. The property’s convenient location which allows you to reach Alba in 20, Turin in 45, the ski resorts of the Maritime Alps in 45 and the Italian Riviera in 60 minutes is an additional asset of the property.


Given its considerable size, the unique charm of its original architecture and its convenient location, this property is equally well suited to become a private holiday home or a luxury holiday rental property.
