Casa degli Orsi


Vacation Rentals, Italy, Piemonte

Magnificent hilltop villa - ideal for Italian cuisine & Piedmont wine enthusiasts

Location: Orsara Bormida, near Acqui Terme

Sleeps: From 4 to 11, but only 5 in winter

The property

Our property comprises two houses (“Romeo” and “Juliet”) facing one another across the courtyard, and can accommodate up to ten/twelve people. It has been painstakingly renovated over the course of over two years during 2007 – 2009. 

The property enjoys extensive views across the Bormida valley to the Alps. The photos show one of the houses (Romeo), the view from the main bedroom window and the dining/kitchen in Romeo. You can see more photos and more information by going to this link  http://www.piedmont.co.uk/piedmont_rental_121.htm or clicking on our website www.bear-holidays.com

“Romeo” is on three floors (270 square metres) and comprises a large kitchen/dining room, a large sitting room, a gallery, a study, a double bed room and a twin bedroom - each with its own bathroom. 

“Juliet” is on two floors (170 square metres) and comprises three bedroom suites, each for two people and each with its own bathroom. Two of the suites have their own roof terrace. The ground floor suite has access to the courtyard and is therefore suitable for less able-bodied guests. There’s also a breakfast room with a sunny balcony.

The study in “Romeo” has a double pull-out sofa-bed so you could sleep two more people.

Down the path from “Juliet”, the steps lead to the studio, ideal on hot summer days for painters. There is also a solar shower.

The furniture throughout is a mix of antique and modern. The modern paintings are all originals.

The property enjoys its own enclosed courtyard, and three terraces with views over the vast Bormida valley. On a clear day you can see Mon Viso 115 km distant.

Places to visit

Our house is a perfect base for exploring the region, although there’s plenty to do if you stray no further than our nearby Roman spa town of Acqui Terme, where it’s a must to visit the spa, stroll round the ancient historic centre and enjoy the traditional food and local wines. Or take a walk though the local hill villages. However, there is much to see in Piedmont. You can make a day trip to the sea (Positano or Arezzano) or drive to Genoa (1 hour), Piacenza (1 ½ hours), Parma (2 hours), Turin or Milan (under 2 hours) and Bologna (3 hours).

How much does it cost?

Rental for one week is 1000 Euros for Romeo by itself (4 - 6 people) and up to a maximum of 1900 Euros for the entire property (10 or 12 people). It's less for fewer people dependent on the number of suites needed in Juliet.
