Monferrato Home for Extended Stays

Have you ever dreamed of living in Italy?

If you love Italy, a vacation is never long enough. But, moving here may not seem possible.

You vow to return, with time to explore the beauties, learn the language, cook the specialties, absorb the culture.

Maybe you immagine staying for a sabbatical, a gap year, a retirement, or to buy your own villa.

You yearn to move beyond expensive, shared tourist accomodations.

To the privacy, autonomy and economy of a real house, in a typical Italian village with an ‘every day’ Italian life.

“Casa in Monferrato” can help you make the transition from being a tourist, to being a neighbor.

Casa in Monferrato - Extended Stay HomeWe are located in the Monferrato territory of Piemonte, some of northern Italy’s most beautiful wine and hill country. Our neighborhood is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its vineyard landscapes and unusual wine cellars.

We offer you a private, comfortable home base, in an authentic and panoramic village…surrounded by countryside, but, near to Turin, Milan, and the Ligurian coast.

Our house is called Casa Valentino. It is fully furnished, serviced and equipt for you to move in and stay, for a month or more. Our village, Villa San Secondo, is quiet and pretty with a good shop and a friendly cafè—near to the elegant and ancient city of Asti.

We live nearby, and are available to help you settle in, orient, and make connections—if you need us. We speak the language, understand the ‘rules’, know the ways.

As “Casa in Monferrato”, we have been renting our temporary homes to international guests, slow travelers, and new expatriots since 1999.
