VILLA WITH LUXURY POOL SURROUNDED BY VINEYARDS
Under the Italian sun set amongst vineyards and rolling hills you will find the secluded Villa La Mura. Get away from the buzzing everyday life and enjoy real slow-life. Bring your friends and family to experience genuine Piemontese lifestyle and discover one of Italy’s most beautiful regions. Start the day with a walk alongside the nearby vineyards watching the sun come up over the beautiful hillsides. Spend your days relaxing by the pool to the sounds of birds and the smell of the beautiful roses and herbs in the garden. Enjoy the great selection of Michelin restaurants in the nearby villages of Neive, Barbaresco, Barolo, La Morra and Alba.
TRANQUIL PATIO WITH BLISSFUL VIEW
The charming rustic look of the house has been important for us to persevere. The old brick walls and terracotta roof are symbolic of the local building style in Piemonte. The outside dining space under the pergola can accommodate 16 people. Enjoy your meals with great views over the pool and the blissful surroundings. On each side of the house your eyes can rest on the vineyards and hazelnut groves. Behind the house you will find a small secret woodland where the kids can have great fun playing hide and seek. If you are lucky you will see the wild rabbits playing hide and seek as well. In the evenings beautifully lit pergolas and pool create a great atmosphere. In case of a few raindrops, you can move your dinner party to the rustic old garage where the big garage doors allow beautiful views of the Italian nights.
RELAX AND REFRESH BY THE POOL
The pool is the ultimate in privacy and seclusion and the water offers a refreshing escape from the hot sun. Kickstart your day with a morning swim before sitting down with an espresso. Enjoy lazy days by the pool reading a book or your new magazines. With no nearby neighbors you can feel free to enjoy your favorite lounge music on the outdoor speakers, powered by a Sonos Amp and full outdoor Wi-Fi coverage for your convenience. You will find 8 sunbeds and a big collection of luxury towels for everyone. Wrap up your day with an aperitif in the poolside lounge located in the lush garden with roses and lavender.
ITALIAN STYLE WITH A TOUCH OF SCANDINAVIA
We value the true Italian lifestyle and the traditional craftmanship in Piemonte. It has been important for us to preserve the traditional interior and the soul of the house. For your comfort we have refurbished the bathroom and the kitchen. Throughout the house you will find the traditional vaulted ceilings and beautiful marble terrazzo tiles. The kitchen is the heart of the house and will provide food lovers the ultimate playground. With a good selection of Italian cookbooks, you can feel like an Italian chef when preparing your gourmet meals on the classic gas stove. You will find all the equipment that true Italian foodies need. We provide good quality wine glasses and a selection of stylish tableware to serve your friends and family.
IN THE HEART OF AN UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE
The house is placed between the historical towns of Alba and Asti. Surrounded by cultural landscape with vineyards all around. On top of the hills you find lovely villages with castles and churches. This magnificent scenery of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. We often pop over to Costigliole d’Asti to visit the butcher or get some fresh bread from the bakery. The small town revolves around the large castle. Neive is in our opinion one of the most beautiful old towns in Italy. The small cobblestone streets take you through the center with magnificent views in all directions. There are two large churches and several restaurants and enotecas for gastronomic delights. Alba has the highest concentration of Michelin star restaurants in Italy, and you should check out the world-famous white truffles in the autumn. For wine lovers a trip to Barolo is a must. Set amongst the vineyards of Nebbiolo grapes, it is a perfect village for wine-tasting and a trip to the Wine Museum of Barolo.
THE STORY OF VILLA LA MURA
A long-term passion for the Italian way of life, its amazing cuisine, wine and summer climate, led to the idea of looking for a villa in Italy. When we came across Villa La Mura, it was a perfect fit due its secluded location. It is the perfect place to slow down and spend quality time with friends and family. Even though we totally love the Norwegian winters in Oslo, we can’t wait to get back to Piedmont for the summertime. The name of the villa goes back more than a century and La Mura means the wall. We were told by the family that had lived here for generations that the name was given by the village people because the winemakers used to gather here in the weekends and talk and sing all night long without disturbing anyone. We hope you will love our house as much as we do and enjoy summer evenings with your loved ones.
