Villa Valentina is a modern countryside villa located in the municipality of Agliano Terme, about 15 minutes drive from Asti. The villa is along a quiet downhill street which connects the town center with a few private homes where locals live all year round. The street ends in the vineyards of the UNESCO World Heritage site called Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, where Barbera grapes, among other varieties, are grown.
The location of Villa Valentina benefits from the vicinity to Agliano Terme and from being on the slope of the hill overlooking the valley without any other building obstructing the view. Therefore, the privacy and quietness of this off-the-beaten-track countryside is guaranteed as guests of the villa can enjoy sun-bathing or cooking at the outdoor BBQ without being disturbed.
Description of the villa
Built in the early 2000, Villa Valentina features a total surface of 350 sq m (3767 sq ft) spread on ground floor, first floor (upstairs) and two small towers with loft.

Style and details
The villa had been conceived blending modern style with materials of the local tradition: in facts, the functional floor plan, as well as the colors and modern decoration of some bedroom are combined with local elements such as the roof tiles recycled from a previous building, handmade bricks on the facade, wooden beams and ceiling in the small towers. The kitchen boast a unique stove typical of the region and charming ceramics which remind of a traditional farm-house. Wooden floors available everywhere including bathrooms, add a welcoming and warm feeling.
Villa Valentina features 5 bedrooms. The 3 largest ones of 18 sq m (194 sq ft) are equipped with a queen size bed (except one king size in the Kandinsky room). The 2 twin rooms, with two single beds each, measure about 13-16 sq m (140-172 sq ft). In total, the villa can host 10 people but, in case of need, by using the sofa-bed on the loft of one of the main bedrooms, as well as some extra single beds, the number of guests can increase to 12-13 people.
There are three large bathrooms: one with double shower, one with shower and bathtub, one with shower only. Two of these three bathrooms have a double sink.
