About Giordana Ruatasio
I am a naturopath dealing with natural food. I am from Alba and have always loved this land, rich with stories and gastronomic traditions. In my free time, I like to walk, take care of my plants, play tennis and arrange lunches and dinners with friends.
Giordana Ruatasio purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Giordana Ruatasio chose Rocca d'Arazzo
It is a typical countryside dwelling dating from the early 1900's of Rocca D'Arazzo, an original feudal small village. I decided to rent this house because it is quiet, immersed in a lush green setting, surrounded by trees and flowers. It is located in an ideal area to visit Langhe e Monferrato, ideal places to spend an unforgettable holiday weekend or week. The farmhouse preserves the ancient atmosphere and has been restructured taking in consideration this characteristic. The staircase accessing the bedrooms upstairs is made in stone, the ceilings have brickwork and the floors are part wood and part terracotta. The wide bedrooms have a sober and warm atmosphere: the modern and functional fittings are in some bedrooms and other typically peasant in other rooms (wrought-iron beds). The bathrooms are new (with a hydro massage shower). The mansard is very big, has exposed rafters and sleeping accommodation for 6. This is a house suitable for groups of friends that want to live together and enjoy their time here, couples that want to spend days of absolute peace in the green nature, families that wish to have a large garden for their children to play outdoors. It is beautiful house to see and live. Thanks to its large bedrooms, the double dining room, and the large living room with chimney, it can comfortably accommodate 10, 12 or even 15 people. I have spent many weekends in this house, organizing dinners for friends and I have wonderful memories. During summer, it is fresh and you can sleep extremely well, there is no need of air-conditioning! A few kilometres away, between the hills, you can find pools and tennis clubs, golf and even a Yoga school, at 8km, in the open countryside, a beautiful SPA with interior and exterior pool. For anybody that loves biking and Nordic Walking in the surrounding area you will find nice paths. Now I want to put it at guests’ disposal that can enjoy the conviviality, nature, the good food and wine.
What makes this Villa unique
From each window of the house, you can see the countryside and surrounding hills. There are no houses near, even if the village is only at 800 metres. It is quite and surrounded by a land filled with trees: pines, magnolia, walnuts blackthorn, pears, fig tree, and pomegranates. In spring and summer, we have geraniums, dahlias, violas and surfinia that beautify the house facade. To cook you will find in the garden, sage rosemary, thyme, mint and marjoram. In the morning and during the day, the only noise you will hear will be the bird’s song. During the evening, cricket and cicadas.

La maison est vraiment adaptée à un séjour en famille
Giordana fait tout pour que le séjour se déroule le mieux possible. Merci nous reviendrons....Serge et les 14 Francesi....
Merci beaucoup vous avez été inspecté exceptionnel, vous avez laissé la maison propre et en parfait état! à bientôt!
La maison était très propre et fonctionnelle.
On a passé un excellent séjour en famille.
Abbiamo trascorso nel casolare un bellissimo weekend. Eravamo 3 famiglie con 5 ragazzini e devo dire che quest'ultimi non volevano più ripartire. La casa è grande, luminosa, ben tenuta e accessoriata di tutto. Ci sono tanti posti letto ( i ragazzi hanno dormito tutti insieme nella bellissima mansarda) e una bella sala con camino dove poter mangiare ed intrattenersi.
Giordana è stata una padrona di casa squisita, sempre presente e gentile, anche nei giorni precedenti il nostro arrivo mi ha dato tante informazioni utili su ristoranti e attrazioni del luogo.
Vale la pena di tornare anche nella bella stagione per sfruttare il bellissimo giardino, noi torneremo sicuramente!
Grazie Manuela! Anche per me e' stato un piacere conoscervi e ospitarvi. A presto!
Retour aux sources en famille

Ce fut une semaine très appréciée par toute la famille.
Merci!! Thank you very much!. I hope to host you next time.
