About Mart Pearson
I have been a resident in Piedmont since 1988 and have always enjoyed sharing the beauty of this place with friends and visitors. Food and wine have become my passions and also a great way to meet new people. I have a 'short list' of favorite local wine producers and restaurants but I still feel like I am a beginner, a kid in a candy shop. I am happy to make introductions and suggestions. My three girls are now grown up have left the nest for far and wide. I want to keep the house, but don't need to live in it full time. It is a place that deserves to be shared and loved. This house has been home for all of us and has grown with us, restored and improved bit by bit over these 20+ years (with many more improvement projects in the hopper). We are travelers and the house reflects that, with lots of objects and details that are very personal (and sometimes quirky) and tell stories. There are lots of books to read and browse, including guide books of the area. I can be around during rentals or not, depending on the preference of renters. I enjoy meeting people and am happy to share my knowledge of and appreciation for this area. I am also happy to participate in local tours, shopping, cooking, wine tasting, singing, ping pong games and other good times. I hope that guests will contribute ideas, thoughts, reflections, advice and suggestions for improvement in benefit for future guests. The name "il mestolo", literally a ladle, is intended to suggest the stirring, mixing and tasting of various ingredients put together. We have had seminars, parties, reunions, retreats, concerts - of all kinds and have enjoyed them all. Every opportunity to learn is a gift. Every new person we meet presents an opportunity to learn. I look forward to meeting you.
Mart Pearson purchased this Country house/chateau in 1997
Why Mart Pearson chose San Damiano dʼAsti
When you see it you will know. When I first saw it in 1997 it was just a country house on a hill, in need of a lot of work, but what a location!! (What were those 3 important things? Location, location and location?) Now I think the house and garden area are nearly up to the level of the views. Some of the house is still "in the rough", but that's one of the fun things about being here - you can imagine the next set of improvements. Most people who have spent time here use words like 'magical' to describe it. Very good energy. There are multiple 'outdoor rooms', different gathering places for different times of the day or for different sub-groups of your party. In the summer the pool is an obvious point of convergence but the indoor spaces are also special and accommodating. The spaces lend themselves to groups and sharing.
What makes this Country house/chateau unique
Amazing views, peace and quiet, lots of character. Great space for cooking together.
