Villa Carolina Golf Club
Among the green hills of the Monferrato, as if by magic, a gate opens on a long boulevard shaded by ancient horse-chestnut trees. Villa Carolina is set in the centre of a centuries-old park which has been keeping intact its romantic charm and the magical colours of its nature for 200 years.
The mansion was a wedding gift for the noble Carolina of the Albrizzi marquis and it was chosen as a country residence since the 1800s. The untouched atmosphere of the hills and the perfect harmony between landscape and architecture inspired the designers to a common purpose: Villa Carolina as a meeting and mixing place between man and nature. Villa Carolina CLUB HOUSE is committed to offering the best comfort to its members and guests. The club’s premises are located in the ancient stables which have been completely restored. They host the changing rooms, the carts and bags storage, the ProShop, the bar and restaurant, the indoor practice area and several rooms, including the billiards room. www.golfclubvillacarolina.com

Again about 1 km away from the residence you can make wonderful horse rides with Elena and Rita of I TRE PONTI a.s.d. Society. These two very nice girls teach how to saddle up, the western riding style, horseback tours and trekking for adults and children (they have ponies available).
The horseback rides around the residence are wonderful, in fact along the paths you’ll see enchanted valleys, colourful woods, still stretches of water to cool down, where the only background noise is the birds song or the motionless silence of the mountains.
