Cascina Valgranocchio is a 300 year old restored farm house in Piemonte, in the Northwest of Italy.
Cascina means small farm, and Valgranocchio means valley of the song of frogs.
On the ground floor in the front of the there is a large kitchen (with walk in pantry) opening into the dining room. Beside this is the lounge, with a wood burning firelace. Steps lead up stairs to the bedrooms.
Also on the ground floor at the rear of the house is a celler, a bathroom and a garage/workshop.
There is a large inground swimming pool. (8 x 4 meters)
The house has been fully restored, and has all modern facilities, but kept in the original Italian style.
The farm is surrounded by forest, and has walking and riding trails.
It is very private, with no neighbours within sight, but only a 1 K walk to the local village, Refrancore.
We are 12 K from Asti, about a 100 K from Milano, and 50 K from Torino, and 100 K from Genova, all with international airports.
The Cascina is within easy day trips to the Cinque Terre, Lago (Lake) Maggiore, Lago d’Orta, the Italian Riveria, Portofino, San Remo, Lago Como, and the famous wine area's of Barolo, Barbaresco, etc.
In 2006, Torino hosted the Winter Olympics.
We are less than hour away from where many of the events were held, and within easy reach of the ski fields.
