Located on gentle hills and surrounded by vineyards, this property is halfway between the Monferrato and Langhe areas, a UNESCO heritage site for its history, landscape and the production of excellent wines.

This property is 100 km from Milan, 96 km from Genoa, and 75 km from Turin, which can all be reached in about one hour by car.

Genoa airport is about 80 km away, but you can easily reach the airports of Milano Linate (115 km), Milano Malpensa (135 km) and Turin (113 km) as well.

Description of buildings

Castello Reale in Monferrato is in the heart of a characteristic village and is one of the few castles in Piedmont that has maintained its original defensive walls.

 

This property consists of a castle and former stables immersed in a wonderful park featuring walkways and water games, a bicentennial plane tree and century-old plants.

 

The castle (net saleable area of about 1,563 sq.m) develops over 5 floors and features exposed load-bearing masonry, mullioned windows, arches, moulded frames and, on the east wing, a crenellated tower that emphasises the medieval style of the structure. Part of the brickwork is covered with a climbing ivy.

 

The main floor maintains its ancient charm, including the main hall that features coffered ceilings, the communicating halls embellished with frescoes from the early 1800s, and the porch that used to lead to the castle’s chapel (now deconsecrated).

The first and second floor include nine rooms featuring air conditioning and private bathrooms, most of them with a whirlpool bathtub.

The semi-basement includes the restaurant, which features cross vaults and a large fireplace, the professional kitchen and cellars.

The second semi-basement includes the technical rooms. All systems have been overhauled during the various interventions that this property has undergone.

 

The former stables (net saleable area of about 525 sq.m) develop over 3 floors.

The ground floor includes a reception and meeting hall, a bar, two storage rooms, and bathrooms for people with disabilities.

The first floor includes an apartment with two bedrooms and a bathroom, three storage rooms, a second kitchen, a laundry room and the bathrooms for the guests.

The semi-basement includes a storage room and a technical room (technical systems are new and perfectly functional).

 

This property, of great historic and artistic interest, has been used as a prestigious accommodation facility, in particular for:

- Ceremonies and events

The castle has two kitchens: one inside the main building and the other one in the former stables. The internal halls can contain up to 210 guests. The settings of different sizes inside and outside the buildings can host numerous events in autumn and winter.

- Conferences and meetings

The various halls of the castle can hold meetings with 10 up to 170 participants with the possibility to combine conference and catering services (business brunches or gala dinners).

- Hotel

The hotel includes 9 rooms: 3 comfort double rooms, 2 junior suites and 4 suites.

 

The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.
The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.
The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.

State and finishing

Castello Reale in Monferrato is the result of architectural transformations that the many owners have applied over the centuries. The latest intervention involved the coffered ceilings on the main floor, the prestigious frescoes of the adjacent halls, and the impressive eastern tower.

The interventions made to transform the castle into a hotel and a prestigious event venue aimed at preserving its historical charm and providing the common areas and all the rooms with the highest technical and efficiency standards.

External areas

The castle, former stables and protective walls are surrounded by a 4,700 sq.m park (besides the building grounds), with plants and century-old trees that you can admire along a path with fountains and water games.

Use and potential uses

This property has been an accommodation business for many years. It specialises in banquets and conferences, besides overnight stays.

For those who are interested, there’s the possibility to develop the restaurant business. In fact, the old kitchens, featuring cross vaults and a large fireplace, are the perfect venue for a 25-seat restaurant, which can expand to the park during the summer.
