The dream relais nestled in Monferrato


When I first saw it, at the dawn of the new millennium, I immediately thought: “There it is!” A beautiful relais in Monferrato: an ancient and uninhabited farmhouse, nestled in a beautiful natural setting, the perfect place to make our dream come true. Aware of the immensity of the challenge, we have started a careful renovation to create a unique location surrounded by vineyards, slopes, ancient villas, and castles, right in the heart of Piedmont, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

La Storia

The history

The original building is the sign of the most ancient architecture of Monferrato. It has been maintained as a foundation on which to start the renovation.
Arches, architraves, walls, fireplaces, and ceilings of the former residence can still be admired.

The expansion and renovation work has made it possible to build a residence where our guests can enjoy a unique experience, immersed in a place where time seems to have stopped and where a hospitable and generous nature welcomes them, with its lively rhythm.

The farmhouse is a great heritage, which preserves ancient traditions, such as the breeding of silkworms and the cistern for rainwater harvesting, useful in times of drought, placed under the paving.

Its walls are a witness of a historical, social, and country life, featured by deep roots that we have deliberately recovered while maintaining the same architectural details as a faithful reconstruction of the original building.

The work was completed with the construction of a new cellar built by recovering the foundations and the basic structure of the old one.

The Barea family

An entrepreneur able to combine vision and concreteness, a kind of restlessness with stubbornness in making dreams come true, a successful business captain. And this is Tiziano Barea.

He dreamed, searched, wanted, and renovated Tenuta Montemagno Relais & Wines, a relais set in the heart of Monferrato, the result of careful research, in which his family was also involved. A constant presence, even after the work has been completed. His wife, brother, and the entire second-generation are currently engaged in the management of the relais and the cellar: from commercial activities to marketing and communication, to administration, up to general managing. A work carried out with great passion and a kind of devotion to the customer, to achieve the common goal of creating an unforgettable experience at Tenuta Montemagno.

Boutique Hotels

Hospitality, at Tenuta Montemagno, is the value that originated the dream from which it all began. Through this philosophy, the Estate is considered among the most exclusive residences of the Italian Boutique Hotels, which is a formula that selects the facilities based on the high quality of the services offered (a discounted criterion, in terms of luxury hospitality) and based on the formula proposed and management method.

The Boutique Hotel Tenuta Montemagno features a cozy, intimate, warm environment, in which the fusion of hospitality, services, and food and wine experience is of the highest standards. Everything is immersed in beautiful natural Unesco beauties.

Here the attention to detail is impeccable: from the environment design to the choice of furnishings, from the warmth of the rooms and suites to the catering quality, up to the exclusive services designed for our guests, including the SPA Suite and our Tasting Experiences.
