We are situated in the heart of Asti, in a land rich in history and once the scene of major disputes, just 15 km from the provincial capital and in a hilly, panoramic position that is not isolated. Here, an ancient castle, dating back to the middle ages, stands on the hillside with a magnificent view over the cultivated countryside of vineyards, stretching as far as the horizon, where the Alps rise up majestically.
Completely restored and converted into a historic representative residence, with an indoor swimming pool and a private park, Il Castelliere is located about 10 minutes by car from the A33 motorway, allowing you to reach Asti in about 20 minutes, Alexandria in about 40 minutes and Turin in an hour.
The property consists of the main villa, with 1,426 gross sqm of living area plus 1,000 gross sqm used as storage and utility rooms, as well as an annexe of a further 170 gross sqm serving the swimming pool and a large structure of 208 sqm, inside which the indoor swimming pool is located.
The nearest airport is that of Turin (83 km), just over an hour away by car, while the airports of Genoa (126 km), Milan Linate (151 km) and Milan Malpensa (164 km) can be reached in about an hour and a half.
