Gay men only guesthouse in Italy

Looking for a perfect gay getaway? Our luxury guesthouse is the ideal place to relax and discover the beauty and authenticity of Piemonte.

We are John & Martijn, a dutch gay couple, who in the summer of 2019 discovered a unique house on the edge of a small village. Hidden within the landscape, the house offers breathtaking views of the beautiful Piemonte countryside.

The former wine house has been completely rebuilt and turned into a luxury guest house with 3 large suites and a stunning swimming pool, surrounded by 14.000 m2 of estate. The house offers privacy but is not isolated. We are close to small villages and 15 minutes by car to larger towns.

The region Piemonte is famous for wine (e.g. Barolo, Barbera), white truffle, hazelnut and hilltop villages & castles. Here you can find peace and/or adventure, it’s up to you. We look forward to meet you.

Ci vediamo presto!
John & Martijn

From wine house to boutique guest house

The Cascina

With the careful restoration of the former wine house (cascina) a luxury guest house was born. A tranquil place to escape the world outside. Spacious and private, allowing you to enjoy your free time, care free, overlooking the rolling hills of the Monferrato onto the Alps. Relax and do what you feel up to, reading, swimming, sunbathing or simply nothing.

Spacious suites with incredible views


Warm, inviting and spacious suites with high ceilings will make you feel right at home. The old original concrete walls meet smooth intonaco with an eclectic mix of materials & textures. French doors and windows look out onto the landscape. Shutters filter the light creating the perfect atmosphere. Mosquito nets throughout because life is also about modern comforts.

A land of passion and authenticity

The Area

Piemonte translates into “at the foot of the mountains”. Surrounded by the Alps we call it Italy’s undiscovered gem. A Unesco World Heritage area full of beauty and authenticity. No mass tourism, but true Italian life. Our region has many things to offer, from ancient hilltop villages and castles to ballon flight, from vespa & e-bike tours to wine tastings in the coutryside. Yours to discover.

Let go, relax and recharge!

Quality time with friends
& loved ones

During our holidays we would discuss the idea of a bed & breakfast. A place where guys like us can be themselves. Where small caring gestures between men don’t raise eyebrows.

A place where you can be you.

We both feel a holiday is about letting go. Relax and enjoy yourself. That could be reading a book, sunbathing, cooling down in our pool, being lazy in the shade. Do anything you feel up to.

A place where you can relax.

Ultimately we hope that you feel you are amongst friends. Where you go to recharge. It does not matter how often you stay. We want to be a place that feels natural, a home away from home.

A place where you return to.
