Explore the heart of the Italian Piedmont

We invite you to become our neighbor at Tenuta dei Vicini, a wonderful holiday home in the heart of the Italian Piedmont. 

The building carries a lot of history dating back all the way to 1876, and has been completely renovated and transformed since 2022, now offering 3 guest apartments. The owners reside on the first floor.

We are 2 families that used to be neighbours in Switzerland: Chris & Denise and Martijn & Ilse (with their 2 kids). In 2021, over a good glass of Barbera wine, we decided to start a new adventure together: buying and renovating a traditional Piemontese estate within a UNESCO world heritage site. With a lot of passion & dedication we have since created ‘Tenuta dei Vicini’, which means as much as: the house of the neighbours, where we have happily settled meanwhile and are enjoying our new Italian lives.

It is exactly this life and this vibe that we wanted to share with others as well, which is why we also created 3 fully renovated and modern guest apartments. So, come be our neighbour for a bit and rent one of these 3 spacious apartments we have made for you! We are sure you will enjoy everything this region has to offer and that we – as owners – fell in love with.
