Il Roseto is an old 18th century country villa belonging to a noble Piedmontese family. Renovated in 2005, the house is in an enviable position: set on the hills of Monferrato, with total privacy and views of the surrounding countryside, it is surrounded by rural scenery that, since 2014,is a UNESCO World Heritage site, a territory which, thanks to its wine and food wealth, is known throughout the world. The villa owes its name (Il Roseto = The Rose Garden) to the botanical garden that characterises it (already included among the most beautiful Italian botanical parks), designed in English style and proposing rare varieties of roses. The owner, Signora Ada, a great admirer of these flowers, has created a new variety: the Rosa Ada Sola. Guests of Il Roseto will enjoy an unforgettable stay in elegantly furnished rooms, immersed in the warmth of the countryside. While enjoying the utmost tranquillity, Il Roseto is easily reachable, being just a short distance from the village of Terruggia and a few kilometres from Casale Monferrato, an historic town that boasts a renowned food and wine tradition (truffles, cheeses, meats), while in one hour you can get to Milan, Turin and Genoa, for a perfect mix of relaxation, tranquillity, rural environment, cultural and food & wine tourism, and shopping.
The two pedestrian entrances at the high boundary wall lead into the garden and then on to the main, ground floor entrance to the villa. The villa has two floors. To the right of the main entrance is the spacious, comfortable living room with fireplace which leads on to the dining room with marble fireplace and vaulted ceiling and then to the cosy kitchen with beamed ceiling: all these rooms have large full-length windows overlooking the garden, giving access to it and to the pergola and the swimming pool. There is also a bathroom with shower and a secondary staircase up to the top floor. To the left of the main entrance is the fitness room, with fireplace and Technogym equipment (elliptical and gym weights), next to the small kitchen and guest bathroom. In front of the entrance, the main stone staircase leads up to the top floor with, on the left, a hallway leading to a double bedroom with four-poster bed and en-suite bathroom with tub; to the right of the staircase a brightly-lit corridor leads to a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, to a twin bedroom with joinable beds, to another twin bedroom and then, at the end of the corridor, to a bathroom with tub serving these two bedrooms. And, finally, a double bedroom, with adjoining bathroom with tub, which can be accessed from the secondary staircase or through the small corridor that connects it to the twin bedroom. The rooms on the top floor, like most of the ones on the ground floor, have ceilings with exposed wooden beams and large full-length windows with a view of the garden and the pool.
The large botanical garden of about 3,500 sq m extends 180 degrees at the front of the villa. To the right is the pond and the small path that leads to the main entrance of the villa and to the large portico with barbecue. The pool area and solarium are in front of the house, at a slightly lower level, and reached down a few wooden steps on the lawn. The garden is flat and enlivened by short paths and relaxation corners equipped with tables and chairs or benches for your moments of peace. In the park are old tall trees, ornamental and flowering shrubs, and, of course, many varieties of roses.
The pool is visible from the villa because it is located centrally to it, about 10 m away, and is on a level a little lower than the park. In a sunny position, it can be reached from the garden from various points, thanks to the paths and wooden steps on the lawn. It is bordered by a hedge on one side, on two sides by the relaxation-solarium area with sunbeds, little tables and umbrellas while, on the fourth side, there is an area with a table and chairs for convivial moments under a shady pergola. The pool measures 10,5 x 4 m, with the depth varying from 1,40 to 2,00 m; it has chlorine purification, internal lighting and three Roman steps for entry to the water. The pool is available to guests from the first Saturday of May to the last Saturday of September.
