Casa Valentino is in the Monferrato territory, the heartland of Italy’s northwestern Piemonte region; foothills of the great Alpine mountains.
It is a rich land of vineyards, castles, ancient villages and historic cities—where a thousand of years of human history has left its imprint on the architecture and the traditions.
The lifestyle is courteous and unhurried … based on all the best elements of the Italian culture: beauty, history, good taste(s).
Monferrato is a place to explore and to savor, and also ideally positioned to serve as a comfortable home base for day trips to dozens of Northern Italy’s famous attractions; the Langhe, Turin, the Lakes, Milan, the Riviera, the Alps.
