Nowadays beautifully restored and well kept by the owner, whom a delightful host to our guests during their stay at the property.

She will serve your fresh fruit juice in beautiful crytsal glasses, tea/coffee in fine bone chine and make you feel a private guest and not a customer.
During the restoration works they have found several underground tunnels and a special "crutin" (small cellar) hand dug into the tuff and used in ancient times to rainwater collector and freezer. It is assumed that one of these tunnels was connected with the basement of the nearby castle of Mango and used as an escape. Or that, given the location, the location may have been a military outpost.
This villa is ideal for people looking to get away from it all in the quiet corner of beautiful Langhe with stunning surroundings and with an accommodation to die for. It s not recommended for people looking for contemporary and modern and this is a typical; classical Italian Villa with all the charm and beauty.

The owner Gabriella says: 'This is the house that I always felt like my really, the place where I spent my childhood and most happy and peaceful moments of my life. The memory of these hills of Langa never abandoned me and I have always had the feeling, sooner or later, I would be back to give new life to this unique place. Here I have finally been able to realise a dream that I cultivated for a long time: to have a place of absolute privacy and intimacy in which "free" my artistic sense, so eclectic and versatile, creating environments that evoke my preferred styles and colors.
I decided to create a place for the soul, a sort of refuge for those who, like me, still appreciate the power of beauty, the fine things, the elegance and an hospitality in the purest "Savoy" style, made of warm welcome and great discretion at same time.
I would like to welcome you in the purest tradition of Langa, with a flute of fragrant Moscato accompanied by the famous local “ round & kind “ hazelnut and to guide you in a pleasant stay in Villa Althea and my beloved Piedmont.
