This authentic farm holds an impressive position on a hill from where you will be delighted with the views. It is a wonderful location for nature lovers and those seeking a peaceful and scenic holiday. It is positioned in the triangle between the Langhe region towns of Alba, Asti and Acqui Terme.
The area is little known by European tourists, including the Italians themselves. Consequently the Asti province is surprisingly unspoilt and beckons to be explored. There is a road next to the farm but it is lightly used and therefore is not noisy.
The Collina San Michele farm is perched on a hilltop 350 metres above sea level and the views from its terrace are fabulous. On clear days you can see up to 30 km across the surrounding hills and valleys with their countless vineyards and many small towns. Eating on the covered terrace whilst taking in all this beauty makes the trip worthwhile. The views are the same from the 7 x 13 m swimming pool.
The farm has 11 bedrooms, six of which are in the main building and the rest are in a new building around 30 - 40 metres away. Four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms in the main building are on the first floor. They are spacious and attractively furnished either with antique furniture or with old-style new pieces. All four bedrooms have air conditioning and balcony. The two bedrooms in the main building which share a bathroom in the corridor are somewhat smaller and have no TV, air conditioning or balcony. Please note that the extra beds that can be provided are not of the best quality and are therefore best suited for children. In the new building all the bedrooms have air conditioning and some of them also have terrace or balcony.
Collina San Michelle is not a one-man operation but the impression seems that way because Fabrizio is everywhere, from the kitchen to the reception and places in between. Some guests interpret him as being intoxicated, because of his staggered gait but in-fact he had a serious car accident some years ago which damaged his balance. Opinion is divided as to whether his behaviour is charming and jovial, or annoying and intrusive, but we can say for sure that he is charismatic and it adds an interesting twist on a stay at Collina San Michele.
Note that the farm is sometimes visited by guests from the area that eat in the restaurant and make use of the pool.
