Additional Location Information

The Professor's Home was built on top of a hill by our great grandfather between 1890 and 1920; it is a traditional Piedmontese farmhouse, which was refurbished and modernized over the years without overlooking the distinctive traits of country life: the hayloft, the big shed for the tools at the back, the large pavement for agricoltural work at the front. The house is surrounded by a partially fenced 2.4 acres private property.

The thick brick walls keep the house cool even in the hottest summers, making air conditioning unnecessary; during the winter we use central heating and two fireplaces, one in the kitchen and one in the living room, finally you can use the wood-burning stove for heating as well as for cooking.

The house rests on a large cellar, that hosts our tiny wine production; many rooms are large, each of them measuring about 300 sq ft, with vintage furniture and windows screens.

Downstairs there is the living room, whose floor dates from the early twentieth century, with a fireplace, a Petrof upright piano and a vaulted ceiling featuring floral decorations; the kitchen, with a wood-burning stove and another fireplace; from the kitchen there is also the access area to the main bathroom, where the washing machine stands. The TV set with satellite dish and decoder is in the kitchen; it comes complete with a DVD/DivX player and a cassette recorder.

Upstairs there are a second bathroom and four bedrooms, two facing south and two facing north. Each of them sleeps two to four people.
