Cascina Caterina is our lovely holiday home. It is a chic C19th farmhouse in the verdant heart of Piedmont, famous for its beautiful countryside, vineyards and all things foodie. It's perfect for families - secluded and relaxing with an acre garden and pool, but not isolated. The best-ever pizza restaurant is down the road, and it's well-placed for trips to the Ligurian coast (1.5hr), historic Turin, Milan & designer outlet shopping, wine-tasting and some of Italy's top restaurants at Alba.

The space

We have recently bought our gorgeous farmhouse. It is already a lovely, comfortable place to stay and we're only going to make it better. This year we're offering it at a bargain price. There are four double bedrooms, two with king-size and two with double beds. All have views over the garden and woods beyond. The main bathroom on the first floor has a large bath and wet room-style shower; there are two more, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, wood-burning range and two fridges with freezer space. There is a washing machine in the downstairs bathroom. Downstairs there is also a cosy reading room with three comfy chairs and a room with TV (not linked up to channels but there is a DVD player and a big library of films) with a sofa and chaise longue - ideal for lounging. The garden is large with peach, apple, pear and plum trees and is open to oak-filled woods that front the house. It's not a manicured space, so great for relaxing and playing. The pool isn't large (4.5m x 9.15m x 1.25m deep), but a great space for chilling together as a family. There is a parasol and outdoor seating on the courtyard, a barbecue, plus another parasol and loungers in the pool area.

Guest access

You'll have the whole property to yourselves.

Interaction with guests

I live in London, so you'll need to be a bit self-sufficient, but I'm always happy to talk via phone and email. Plus Marta, who'll greet you, is English-speaking and lives locally.

Other things to note

This is an idyllic place for children but please note that the pool and garden are not enclosed so supervision is important outside. There are no child gates on the stairs.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be supervised and cleaned up after AT ALL TIMES. There is no fence around the property.
The farmhouse is reached via a short private road, which is unsurfaced, but you don't need a four-wheel drive, just drive very slowly.

We had a great holiday in Catherine's beautiful house! It's super charming and very clean. The pool was really refreshing when it was so hot the first days. The piemontese hills are lovely and the tasty food & wine too!!

Wir verbrachten zwei Wochen in diesem tollen Haus. Das Haus war sehr sauber als wir ankamen. Insgesamt war das ganze Grundstück sehr gepflegt. Das Haus und der Garten sind mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet ohne das es überladen wirkt. Es ist alles sehr geschmackvoll. Mit großen Kindern ist es perfekt, da jeder seine Rückzugmöglichkeit hat. Die Küche bietet alles, was man braucht. Es war sehr sauber, so dass man gerne darin arbeitete. Der Pool bot notwendig Platz, dass man auch zu fünft darin Wasserball spielen konnte. Platz zum Relaxen gab es auch genug. Während unserer Anwesenheit wurde der Garten und Pool regelmäßig instand gehalten. Catherine und Marta waren immer als Ansprechpartner für uns da und gaben uns Tipps. Wir kommen wieder! Vielen Dank!
