Amenities and special features of this house

Just a few steps away from the Castiglione Falletto Castle, in the heart of the historic center, a welcoming gravel courtyard leads to the lovely semi-independent farmhouse from the 1600s. The property has recently been conservatively renovated with the utmost attention to detail, careful selection of materials, and comfort. It has belonged to the same family for generations and was originally located near the walls of the ancient medieval village. Even today, the beautiful pointed arches in the communal hall on the ground floor, similar to those in the castle kitchen, bear witness to its history. Currently developed on three floors (first floor, ground/courtyard floor and garden floor), the property is divided into two apartments, ready to be potentially used entirely or in part for tourist accommodation. In 2014, the current owner, a professional architect always active in the field of residential construction, made the first floor modernly usable, creating a beautiful apartment with a large panoramic terrace overlooking the Langhe, all while respecting the historical architectural style. The old vegetable garden was transformed into a charming garden with six terraces, one of which now houses the heated swimming pool. About 1000 different plants, both flowering and fruit-bearing, irrigated with the own well water, were planted at the same time. Subsequently, starting from 2020, the ground floor with the garden was renovated with the creation of a large two-level apartment whose focal point is the communal hall, cool in summer and temperate in winter, thanks to the thick walls. The property is ideal for those who want to enjoy the proximity to main services while remaining in an idyllic setting from which to appreciate the charm of the UNESCO hills.

Castiglione Falletto: Location and surroundings of this property

Castiglione Falletto is one of the villages in the "Langa del Barolo," an area recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014. Upon entering the town of Castiglione Falletto “via Roma” street, where the property is located, you arrive at Piazza del Centro, formerly known as “Piazza della Balada” (Dance Square), as it hosted the village festival dances. A short ascent leads to the imposing fortress. Going down Via Marconi and turning left into Via Cavour one walks right under the ramparts that reach dizzying heights, leaning against the sandstone benches bordered by three corner turrets. Passing in front of the chapel of the “Confraternita dei Battuti” (Confraternity of the Beaten), dedicated to St. Anne, you reach the foot of the access ramp to the Castle. Castiglione Falletto Castle was built by Bertoldo Falletti of Alba, who had received the place as a fief from the Marquises of Saluzzo. The Falletti family, owners until the end of the 17th century, wanted to add their name to that of the village. Returning to the central square, you can walk along “Via della Fontane” (Fountaines Street), a path that descends among the three ancient terracotta reservoirs, the last water reserve of the village in times of drought, to return with a wide circle to the entrance of the village. Alternatively, from the central square, taking the ancient moat road, you can complete the full tour of the historical nucleus of Castiglione Falletto, overlooking the slopes of the surrounding hills.
