The secluded and tranquil location produces in the visitor a state of calm and serenity. Leaving the low-traffic asphalt road that winds amid the green grassy hills, one takes a track which leads to the cluster of three buildings, of which one is a former nunnery from the 1600’s while the other two are rural houses of sharecroppers. The entire property is enveloped by a gently ascending hill slope which contains two spring water wells and a chapel. The property’s land holding extends over approximately 3 hectares (7.4 acres) all contained in a single plot wedged between the road and a creek.

The stones of the walls seem bent on telling the stories they must have witnessed. Stories of prayers and spiritual exertions from times when nuns inhabited the convent. In more recent times stories of adolescents from disadvantaged backgrounds who have recovered their capacity and will to play and live thanks to therapies based on play, music and creative endeavors in general.

On a meadow in the grounds a megalithic site has been recreated where sunrays mark the succession of seasons and instill a particular energy.

The most ancient and majestic building, the former convent, is in need of restoration while offering sound structural conditions and noteworthy architectural features such as vaulted ceilings, cotto tile floors and fireplaces, all well preserved despite the passage of centuries. On its ground floor the house contains cellar and stables while the two upper floors contain kitchens and rooms varying in size. Above the stable there is a spacious hayloft.

The two remaining houses are the ones which are inhabited at present.

We rely on the photographs to better illustrate the rooms, their arrangement and use and the potential contained in the over 900 square meters of floorspace provided by the property which is equally suitable for a private residence as it is for a hospitality business.

The locality is set in a private and undisturbed position with easy access from the motorway (4 miles/6 kilometers). The same distance separates the property from the towns of Vicoforte and Mondovì, home to a wide variety of shops and services, a railway station and schools of all grades up to and including university level.

The ski slopes of the Maritime Alps are just 25 kms away, the beaches of the Italian Riviera 60 kms.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be swayed by the charm of this unique property whose viewing cannot but leave pleasant memories irrespective of your decision regarding the purchase.
