A sanctuary for body and mind at Castellero in Monferrato

Castellero offers total pleasure for all your senses, in one of the most enchanting regions of Italy. A combination of historical architecture, modern comforts and unspoilt nature, it's the ideal opportunity to purchase your very own part of a timeless sanctuary for mind and body, not to mention style.

 Vilamoura / Algarve
- Built around an historic Italian castle, the Castellero development is a delight for the senses, where modern luxury meets natural beauty.

About the region

The Castellero development sits just outside the city of Asti, to the east of Turin. Asti is considered the modern capital of Monferrato, part of the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. Monferrato is famous for its wine production, and is considered one of the most important wine districts in the country. The area is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as of 2014, and has been recognised as such for its vineyards as much as for its Renaissance art and architecture.

Nature lovers visit the area for the wildlife, from birds of prey to deer, wild boar, wolves and foxes, as well as to spot rare wild orchids and pick medicinal herbs. You might also be lucky enough to hunt out one of the region's famous truffles, which can be enjoyed in much of the local food. A trip to the Piedmont Apennines Protected Areas Park brings even more natural delights, with streams, gorges and pools nestled among the fresh pine forests.

About the Castellero development

This beautiful development takes the form of a hamlet with multiple apartments, all built around the central 14th-century castle from which it takes its name. Of the 6,290 square metres Castellero occupies, 4,400 of these are devoted purely to gardens, where you can enjoy a variety of sport and leisure activities or simply relax in the warm weather the region enjoys.

As well as having its own extensive green spaces, Castellero is also completely surrounded by nature, with vineyards, hills, woods and valleys making up the local landscape. The staff at the development's own concierge desk can advise residents on how to make the most of the stunning location.

The development is devoted to physical and mental well-being. It features an on-site spa and swimming pool where you can relax and rejuvenate, as well as its own restaurant (with discounted rates for residents), lounge and bar for socialising and enjoying the locally produced food and wine. There's a daily cleaning service, and children also have their own designated areas so they can have fun while the adults relax with total peace of mind.

Apartments have been created by Italian brand Bertone Design, and tread a stylish line between historical and modern, all while maintaining a calm, luxurious feel. Furnishing is high-end and comprises classic shapes and styles that mimic and complement the surrounding nature. Materials are also natural wherever possible, extending the outdoors inside for total symbiosis with the landscape.
