In 1978, Gualtiero and Franca purchased a piece of land in Bricco San Pietro with woods and fields to build their home. An innovator since birth, Gualtiero constructed the home to be heated entirely with solar energy, one of the first residential buildings in Italy to be heated with solar energy technology. Passionate about ecology and botany he eventually built the Casa on the property to be used as a School of Ecology.
Immersed in the lush greenery of the Langhe hills with majestic views of the snowcapped Alps, the Casa, having been transformed into a holiday residence, is a place to relax and enjoy the silence of nature. Ideally located in Monforte at the crossroads of the hiking trails, the Casa is the perfect starting point to discover this marvelous territory on foot or by bike.
Gualtiero and Franca had a large family who continue the passion for these breathtaking hills.
Their daughter-in-law, Marilena, will take care of making your stay comfortable and relaxing. All lovers of hiking or mountain biking will enjoy the trails and the little villages dotted along them where you can taste the best cuisine of the Langhe. Return from your adventures to the Casa in time to enjoy the sunset over the Alps, a stunning sight, from the picturesque porch.
