Casa Serena is perched on a hillside in the vineyards near Milan as well as Torino ("Turin"). It is an inviting combination of classic Italian decor with a splash of retro fun. The terrace is a serene setting for breakfast or an evening wine, and each bedroom has it's own balcony perfect for your morning coffee. We love having visitors from around the world to enjoy a bit of 'la dolce vita'. If you are a seasoned traveler or new to Europe, we will do all we can to make your stay in our corner of Italy marvelous.
Hospitality is our priority, as part of your stay with us we will provide you breakfast each morning as well as a glass of local wine in the evening. Celebrations and special requests are our favorite, please do not hesitate to ask. Casa Serena offers the right balance of privacy with service. A host will be downstairs and will provide you breakfast, fulfill special requests and answer questions about the area... so no worries.
In addition to the two large bedrooms elegantly furnished each including a private balcony, we have a small room with a twin bed for a child/single. Additionally, you are also welcomed to enjoy the large salon ('salotto') that opens onto the terrace to read a book, take in the view or maybe put a puzzle together.
Solonghello is a tiny village nestled on a hillside capitalizing on a gorgeous view and boasts it own castle. There are bakeries, coffee bars and restaurants scattered around the Monferrato area just waiting to be explored. If you would like to stay in one evening we can also offer an Italian dinner right at the villa.

No car? Take a train from Milan to Casale Monferrato and we will gladly pick you up. Better yet rent a car in Casale and avoid driving around Milan, the best of both worlds.
