Surrounded by Monferrato's countryside, near Alessandria, there is this wonderful luxury estate: an old Romanesque abbey dating back to the 11th century.
The complex is composed of a picturesque 3,100 m2 main villa and 1,110 m2 of cellars plus another 11,000 m2 of rural buildings which could be used as a residential or tourist accommodation facility.
Born on the base of a pre-existing Benedictine convent, this estate was then rebuilt by the Order of Saint Ambrose of Milan in the 1600s, and finally expanded by the Counts Frascara who made their private residence here in the late 1800s.
An extraordinary Romanesque abbey is also part of this property for sale, it is an 11th-century place of worship and it is a national monument containing an old crypt which, as the legend says, once belonged to the Lombard king Liutprand.
The church still has a mosaic floor dating back to the 9th-10th century and frescoes from the 1300s and 1400s, there are also fantastic 16th-century decorations on the columns dividing its three naves.
There is a luxuriant 9-hectares fenced park surrounding this complex, where you will find a swimming pool, a clay tennis court and a lake.
This prestigious luxury estate for sale in Piedmont is a real gem of Italy's historic and architectural heritage and has been always kept with care and maintained through careful renovations during the ages, so that today you can still admire the charm and wealth of its past.
