I have bought and renovated many stone houses over the last 16 years, which has given me valuable experience and not least a great network of skilled local craftsmen. Together with my business partner Santino Gollino, I have established the company Monferratocase SRL where we are working closely with local Geometre buying, selling and developing properties
We specialize in the old rustic stone houses that are so characteristic of the area. We spend a lot of time to find the most attractive properties. We are looking for unique and special places with spectacular views, peace and quiet and not least the possibility that you can construct your Italian dream house.
Once we have found your dream location, we consider it our duty to ensure as flexible and uncomplicated purchase process as possible. We make sure the property/project is free of loans or other legal obligations, we provide written documentation translated into English, we ensure that your obligations in relation to the “imposta di Registro” (stamp duty) and “Catasto” (land registration ) is reduced to a minimum. We make sure that the transaction at the notary is done smoothly and in general we take care of all the practical matters related to the implementation of the deal.
Italian culture, Italian history, Italian-style, Italian food and wine, Italian sunshine. La Dolce Vita – the Italian way of life is seducing and appealing. If your dream is to combine European standard of safety and security with unrivaled quality of life, there is not a better choice than Italy.
People who are used to traveling in Italy appreciate good roads, good communication facilities, good electricity conditions, plenty of water and being near a city where can find parking spaces and book a restaurant in the summer months. But there is much more than this in Southern Piedmont. The stunning scenery often surprises first-time visitors. The climate is great – long hot summers are followed by a cool but very short winter period. In addition you will find the best wines in Italy. Many experts believe that Barolo and Barbera are two of the finest wines in the world.
When people look at buying an old “rustico” it is obviuos that one of the first questions they ask is “How much will a renovation/new build cost?
Of course it depends on several things: The location, the current status of the building, choice of materials, size of the house, etc
Initially it will therefore be an estimate. A bit further in the proces you will receive a “computo metrico” (bill of quantaties) and this will be very accurate.
However, if you calculate a sqm price of € 2.100,00-2.400,00, you will not be surprised when you receive the accurate budget. Please bear in mind that this ex VAT (10%).
This includes a complete renovation/new build, where basically everything is taken down and rebuild by professional local Italian craftsmen. The work will be done with the outmost respect for the original charm and features of the house.
In other words an old stone house brought up to todays standards including a pool 6×12 meter.
The rebuild/new build normally takes 14-16 months.
You can find the gentle hills of Monferrato and Langhe in the north-western corner of Italy, between the Alps and the Riviera, in the area of Piedmont that lies south of the river Po.
It is largely a rural area, yet the furthest of the three cities of Genoa, Milan and Turin is little more than an hour’s drive away. Centre of the Monferrato region is Asti, a town brimming with history as far back as Roman times.
The Monferrato, and Langhe to the south of it, occupy foothills branching off the Ligurian Appennines across the Casale area to the Po valley in a variety of geographical contours and landscapes.
The Piedmontese Alps, with the beautiful Val d’Aosta and the Gran Paradiso National Park, are close at hand to the north, and many famous Italian, French and Swiss ski-resorts are within easy reach.
The houses you find on my website are only a small sample of the many houses I can provide. Through my extensive local network I am able quickly to find exactly the house that fulfils your dreams and needs. So the more you can tell me, the easier it will be for me to find the property of your dreams.
Please don’t hesitate to call me.
Piedmont sounds seductive, like its truffles and chocolate cherry pralines – but who really knows Piedmont?
Coming from northern Europe by car, travellers to Tuscany and Umbria usually bypass Piedmont at its most north-western corner, and never come into contact with Italy’s most diverse and productive province.
Eating out in Piedmont is one of the finest of pleasures. Food-lovers from Milan and Turin flock south every weekend to visit their favourite restaurants – for Saturday evening or Sunday lunchtime, therefore, it’s usually a good idea to book a table.
Hi, my name is Jesper Remo. I live permanently in Piedmont and the old stone houses in the area are my passion. I have during the past 16 years helped many foreigners to develop their dream home in Piedmont.
