The Professor's Home is located just outside Roatto d'Asti, a little village in the heart of Lower Monferrato, Piedmont, Italy. It was our family house for over a century; now we rent it out as temporary residence to guests looking for a viable and cheap alternative to hotels and B&B.

We stayed 5 nights in this historic, beautifully maintained home. Our host Angelo was welcoming and helpful guiding us to local restaurants, wineries and sightseeing locations. The price was extremely reasonable and altho Roatto is tiny (just a corner store) the grocery is a close...More

My husband and 11 year old son stayed in the Professor's Home for 10 nights in late September 2012. The house was amazing - fully of family heritage and mementos, whilst still being very practically fitted out and comfortably furnished. The kitchen is really well...More
