LE CASE SELVATICHE Cir.00401200007/00401200008

Via Castello, 30 - Montebracco - 12032 Montebracco, Barge - Cuneo - Italy

Our dream of living in the mountains, the desire to share it in a pure, simple and natural environment.

In an uncontaminated corner of the Italian Alps, in front of the Monviso, recognized by UNESCO as a Transboundary Biosphere Reserve, we open the doors of our houses, a small village immersed in the woods at 900 meters high, reachable through a track in the earth of little more than 1 km, by car in 10 minutes or in about twenty minutes on foot from the parking on the square of the Certosa di Mombracco in the municipality of Barge, Cuneo.
Here, in the silence of the chestnut woods, we offer you a stay of peace and serenity.

The village, abandoned at the time of purchase, has maintained its original characteristics, the redevelopment works were carried out in green building, using stone / wood / lime / ecological paints and natural fibers for insulation.

Always attentive to the relationship between man and the environment, "Le Case Selvatiche" represent the realization of the dream of living immersed in nature.
By adapting to the rhythms, times and roughness of a self-preserving environment, we give meaning and authenticity to our existence while at the same time trying to limit our impact on the world that welcomes us as much as possible.

It is not a question of giving up, but simply of doing without.

We have dark, starry and silent nights, broken by the song of the owl and breathtaking sunrises that inflame the Monviso.

Stories, experiences, silences, noises and our breathing which, taking the rhythm of the forest, allows us to enter inside.

The village consists of a large long house with two apartments, one with two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom with shower, the other with large bedroom and bathroom with tub.

Each room has a balcony overlooking the mountains and access to each apartment is independent.

For the winter, the heating is wood-burning, with fireplaces and stoves.

An independent cottage is available with a double bedroom, bathroom with tub and a beautiful terrace with a magnificent view of the Monviso.

"Le case Selvatiche" ideal place for a weekend in the mountains, for a week of relaxation, in osmosis with nature, to be shared with friends or family.
Also ideal for work groups that need a few days of isolation, for meetings on holistic medicine, yoga, art schools, writing ....
A 15 minute walk from the houses, there is the small village of the Charterhouse of Mombracco, a 12th century monastery, built by the hermit monks of the monastic order of Chalais.

Next to the monastery there is the Trattoria della Trappa where it is possible to have lunch and / or dinner in the shade of the plane trees, late Piedmontese home cooking.

Montebracco acts as a buttress to Monviso, reaches 1500 meters and blocks the road to the nascent Po valley, forcing the river of the same name to flow into a narrow valley and then opens onto the plain where it will flow for 650 km to the Adriatic Sea.

On Montebracco there are multiple opportunities for activities without leaving:
- simply walking to discover the landscapes, the traces of rural life related to the work of the stone, the rock engravings, the alpine architecture, as for example. Balma Boves.
- mountain biking on the countless marked trails
- take advantage of the climbing routes
or you can go to the discovery of Monviso, the "King of stone", which with its 3850 meters in height, illuminates and dominates western Piedmont with its imposing beauty, through various paths;
- from the easier ones, accessible to everyone, such as the Pian del Re and the Po sources
- to the more sporty ones, such as the traditional face tour which can last a few days and which allows you to discover the 75 meters long Traversette / hole of the face tunnel, at 2900 m asl, the first alpine tunnel in history, one of the oldest alpine engineering works in the high mountains built in 1480.
- and for climbers, the ascent to the summit.

The territory also has countless places of landscape and cultural interest.

Between Barge and Revello, about twenty kilometers and a half hour by car, you can visit the superb Staffarda Abbey, built by Cistercian monks in the 12th century.

Continuing for about ten km you will find Saluzzo, the capital of the Marquisate for over 4 centuries, from the 10th to the 14th, which offers examples of medieval architecture of extreme interest.

Coming to Barge can also be an opportunity to visit Turin, which is located about fifty km away, where we can offer you an attic in the heart of the city, in the Roman quadrilateral.

    What a slice of heaven was created here. In the middle of the forest, yet with the most amazing view on Monviso. We were fortunate enough to spend three nights here during late November, with the sun warming up the balcony enough to have breakfast in our T-shirts and the nights chilly enough to make good use of the pellet stove and to cook on the cutest wood stove in the kitchen. The hosts are so friendly and helpful, as is their dog. Highly, highly recommend staying here.

    Die Case Selvatiche liegen wunderbar abgelegen und ruhig, mit einer traumhaften Aussicht. Die Gastgeber sind äusserst nett und immer erreichbar. Wir können die Case Selvatiche für Leute, die die Ruhe und die Natur suchen, wirklich empfehlen.

    Wow, was für eine Aussicht, was für ein Ambiente und supernette, hilfsbereite Vermieter die auch darüberhinaus diesen Ort zu einer Wohlfühl-Oase machen.
    Es ist alles da was mann und frau braucht. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut, sehr sauber und der "Hofhund" vetreibt auch mal ein Wildschwein in der Nacht.
    Der einzige Wehmutstropfen war, dass es im Schlafzimmer häufig etwas klamm war, was aber der Hang- und Wetterlage geschuldet ist. Das Bettzeug morgens aufhängen, lüften und die Sonne wirken lassen hat geholfen.
    Die Anfahrt ist etwas abenteuerlich und nicht für tiefergelegte Fahrzeuge geeignet, dafür gibt´s aber paradiesische Ruhe, Natur und Einsamkeit satt.

    Conoscere Carlo è stato un viaggio nel viaggio, non è solo una persona: sensibile, accogliente, generosa, premurosa, ma la porta di accesso nel mondo artistico, raffinato e al tempo stesso primordiale. Immaginate il cestino di un quadro impressionista portato dal pittore che bussa alla porta di due anime erranti. La casa parla del suo modo di essere: essenziale, ma elegante, poetico, ma pragmatico. Camera da letto da letture romantiche e chiacchierate intime con se stessi o anche solo proiettare pellicole al muro. La stufa a legna in cucina è una piccola Madeleine che scalda i ricordi e salva da una grandinata improvvisa. Consigliata a tutti coloro che vogliono connettersi con se stessi e con la natura, per poi scoprire che siamo un tutt’uno, con Carlo!

    Che dire Davide,
    È stato davvero un bel l’incontrò.
    Adoro le persone “ Altre”.
    La vita è così?
    È la sua bellezza
    Il suo essere sorprendentemente imprevedibile,
    In ogni cosa
    Senza per questo doversi inquietare.
    Grazie per il commento.
    Condivido tutto.
    A presto

    Arrivati agevolmente alla Trappa, incontriamo per la prima volta Carlo che ci guida per una strada sterrata verso le Case. Da quel momento capiamo di trovarci in un posto stupendo dove regna la natura e la quiete, ma non finisce qui.
    La casa che ci viene mostrata (casetta con cucina) è perfettamente integrata con l’ambiente che la circonda, pulita e curata; la veranda con vista sul Monviso ci indurrebbe a stare lì tutto il giorno. Un panorama mozzafiato. Per fortuna superiamo la tentazione e ci godiamo le bellissime passeggiate ed escursioni che circondano la zona.
    Qualche parola su Carlo ed Elisa. Gli host si rivelano persone presenti, ma riservate, oltre che ospitali, ricche e interessanti. Ci parlano del posto, della storia delle case e delle proprie idee e passioni facendoci sentire subito a nostro agio.

    Tornati a casa a quasi un mese di distanza possiamo dire di sentire la mancanza di un luogo così bello e speriamo che molta altra gente abbia la possibilità di viverlo.

    Buongiorno Mattia,
    E' stato un bell'incontro.
    Una boccata di Gioventù, bellezza, sensibilità e Arte.
    Grazie di avere scelto Le Case Selvatiche,
    Elisa e Carlo

    Le case selvatiche di Carlo, un luogo meraviglioso, immerso nel verde, e nella montagna di Leonardo.
    Colazione in veranda con vista sul Monviso, cena con il suono dei grilli e le lucciole. Tanti percorsi CAI raggiungibili direttamente dalla casa, il Monviso a breve distanza, ecomodo anche per visitare i paesi del territorio, come Saluzzo.
    Carlo sa accogliere le persone facendole sentire a casa propria, per un'esperienza di condivisione e scoperta di un territorio magnifico.
    Lo consiglio vivamente a chi:
    - cerca pace e silenzio, in un contesto di montagna e semplicità;
    - vuole soggiornare in un ambiente pulito e curato (casa pulitissima e perfetta per due persone);
    - desidera conoscere il territorio, anche grazie ai suggerimenti preziosi dell'ospite
    - non si spaventa per un po' di strada sterrata, senza la quale il luogo non sarebbe così magico.
    Andate a conoscere Carlo e le sue case selvatiche!

    We loved every single day of our stay at the case selvatiche. It has the most beautiful view we ever watched with Mont Viso in al it s moods and colours, it is quiet , you feel and see the nature around you, and the peacefulness builds inside you. The house where we stayes was artfully restored as is the whole little village. It breathes freedom silence art and a lot of room. We sat on the terras most of the time and took long walks in the Monte viso area. The mountain we lived on has a lot of history and suprises. The host Carlo is amazing. He has built and renovated this place , shares it in a warm way and helps when he can. Marvellous! He has a organic garden and offers these delicious greens . We loved everything and recommend it for everyone who wants to live free in a natural place and with a lot of possibilities nearby. Don t hesitate, go there and be recharged! Marion and Jan

    Cari Marion e Jan,
    E' stato un vero piacere ospitarvi alle Case Selvatiche,
    Credo che il " segreto della vita" sia proprio quello della condivisione, questo luogo silente permette di recuperare il senso della della relazione, del rispetto e della profondità.
    Grazie ancora per ogni istante condiviso.

    Casa pulita, in una posizione stupenda. Dominata dal silenzio e dal relax. Nessun rumore di auto e persone, le giornate vengono accompagnate dal rumore della fauna che popola il bosco circostante. Si può lasciare la macchina in un parcheggio e farsi comodamente portare a destinazione dall'esperto guidatore Carlo. La casa è fornita di tutti i servizi necessari. L'accoglienza è ottima, si ha anche la possibilità di ammirare particolari opere d'arte. Tutto il soggiorno avviene sotto la sguardo vigile del "Re di Pietra", che osserva dalle sue alte vette questo splendido e bucolico agglomerato di piccole case. Consigliatissimo.

    Grazie Gloria,
    È stato un vero piacere ospitarvi, le caratteristiche che tu elenchi, sono esattamente quelle che amiamo condividere con i nostri ospiti.
    Il tuo commento ci stimola a fare sempre meglio.
    Sul messaggio del Bacio Perugina che hai lasciato sul tavolo, grazie, c’era scritto che:
    L’amicizia è il vino della vita.

    Nulla succede per caso,
    Magari ci vedremo l’anno prossimo e saliremo sul Viso insieme.
    Buone cose per voi due
    Carlo

    We had a great time at le case Selvatiche. The house is large, comfortable and clean. In the area there are beautiful Italian cities such as Cuneo, Saluzzo and Pinerolo. Carlo and Laura are great people, but the very best thing about this house is the beautiful view on the Montviso! We highly recommend le case Selvatiche.

    Posto tranquillo isolato e molto carino
    Ottima accoglienza dal proprietario, molto gentile e simpatico, e dalla sua giocosa cagnolina
    Ogni casa ha la vista sul monviso
    Noi avevamo la casetta doppia,ha un bel terrazzino largo e spazioso dove si possono fare ottimi pasti con vista
    La cucina ha tutto il necessario e se mancasse qualcosa il proprietario è a completa disposizione
    Se scegliete l'opzione con la cucina non ci sarà la colazione inclusa
    Nei dintorni delle case ci sono alcuni sentieri mentre dalla casa al Monviso ci sono circa 45 min di macchina. Quindi ottima la locazione dal mio punto di vista e ottima la qualità prezzo!
