N° 062 | Endless Piemonte Views

users 8 bed 4 bath 6

This unusual villa in Le Langhe region in Piemonte has a breathtaking view: from whichever part you look, a unique, unmistakable hilly landscape stretches as far as the eye can see. It overlooks the old borgo of Neive, which is 3 km away. 

Originally there was an old “ciabot” (a rural building characteristic of the Piedmontese vineyards) on this magnificent spot. The owners contemplated what they should do with this unique location… one thing was clear, it had to be enjoyed by many. The question was then, should it be a hotel or a private home? In 2019 it was totally renovated in contemporary style and is now a private home with all the comfort and luxury of a hotel. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, balcony, safety deposit box, mini bar, and of course, the view!

The house is also lovingly referred to as “The House Beyond the Hedges” because you can see the Langhe hills through the windows/holes in the hedge. Even when you are swimming in the pool, you have a stunning view over the rolling hills and vineyards. 

The Space 

The whole villa is equipped with the most modern technology and refined furnishings. It offers a spacious living area with high ceilings that immediately catch the eye. Inside, you'll find a large dining space, a kitchen with an island, a cozy fireplace, and even a piano. Step outside, and there's a beautiful garden and a refreshing swimming pool. Upstairs, the villa boasts three roomy double bedrooms. Downstairs, there's a private studio flat that overlooks the pool which is surrounded by a tall cypress hedge that not only ensures privacy but also offers a unique view. 

The Garden 

The garden is accessed from both the lower floor, through the numerous French windows from the dining area and from the independent studio flat, and from the balcony on the ground floor via the wisteria-covered iron staircase, and also from the vehicle entrance, defined by a gate, which branches off from the municipal road below the villa, 50 meters from the property. From this entrance, those with mobility difficulties can more easily access the property. The 400 sq m garden contains low plants like hydrangeas and is divided into three terraces that create small peaceful corners, while tall trees border the southwest part of the garden. 

Swimming Pool

The infinity pool is part of the villa, separated from it only by the long portico on which the lower-floor rooms face, that is, the dining room/kitchen and the independent studio flat, and is bordered on three sides by the garden. Rectangular, it measures 11 x 4,5 m with a varying depth of 1,20 to 2 m. Access to the water is via four Roman steps, each 180 cm wide. At night it is illuminated until midnight and has chlorine purification. Surrounding the pool is the solarium area equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs, and an umbrella. The hot-water shower room also serves as a changing room and is located indoors. On the short side of the pool, in front of the dining room/kitchen, is a large dining table with an umbrella. The pool is available to guests from the first Saturday of May to the last Saturday of October.

The Surroundings

The villa is located in a beautiful hilly area surrounded by vineyards and hazel groves in Serracapelli, a cozy hamlet near Neive. The villa is on a high spot, giving you a stunning 180° view of the area, including the charming old town of Neive. Neive is a small town with a rich history, boasting a picturesque medieval center with old palaces, narrow cobblestone streets, and lovely terracotta buildings. It's a place that truly cares about preserving its heritage, and you'll find this in the wineries and traditional restaurants serving authentic Piedmontese dishes. Neive is considered one of the “Borghi più Belli d'Italia” (the most beautiful borghi in Italy), and it's part of UNESCO's World Heritage Site known as “Piedmont Vinicultural Landscape: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato.” The town is also along the scenic “Romantic Road of the Langhe and Roero.”  There is also a beautiful castle with a winery inside and an idyllic setting for a winetasting. 

You'll have plenty of wineries to visit and taste the famous wines of the region like Barbaresco, Moscato, Barbera, Dolcetto, and of course the world-famous Barolo. If you're a truffle enthusiast, Alba, famous for its International White Truffle Fair, is just a short 15 km drive away.
