A swimming pool can be built in the large upper courtyard.
We are in Monastero Bormida, a small town in Monferrato founded by a group of Benedictine monks who, around 1050, came from San Benigno Canavese called by Aleramo, Marquis of Monferrato, to till and sow the lands devastated by the Saracens. The current castle corresponds precisely to the site of the original monastery. Monastero has a large square with its arch, unique in Piedmont, to connect the bell tower to the body of the castle, and a stone bridge that has withstood eight centuries of floods. It is a country of alleys that are now almost uninhabited and once the center of commercial life, which still includes the most important weekly market in the Langa Astigiana. The market square, the churchyard, the scenographic theater where the polentone ritual takes place, while one of the most impressive exhibitions of ancient crafts in Piedmont unfolds in the streets. In 1393 the Benedictines left the town, which in the following years passed alternately to the Del Carretto, Della Rovere and Savoy families.
The property is 14 km from Acqui Terme, 55 km from the sea, 56 minutes from Alba and about two hours from Milan and an hour and a half from Turin.
