The year 1181 ran... The Codex Diplomaticus Civitatis Astensis names "Jacobus, dominus Roathe, consul astensis populi": these are the first news of Roatto Castle erected on the top of an amena, amena hill of the Astigian at 256 m above sea level. between Villafranca and Montafia. In the fresco full of bloody and diplomatic battles of the 1500s and 16th 1600s (the theatre of many spectacular historical re-enactments such as the Siege of Canelli) he acquires the fiefdom Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy, who gives it to the Provence gentleman Charles of Simiane of Gordes d'Albigny, with the title of Marquis of Roatto. Through generations and romances worthy of a spy-story the castle becomes the property of Irene of Simiane wife of Prince Michele Imperiali of Francavilla who undertakes the complete renovation. After other passages of ownership, finally around 1890 becomes owner of the castle the Marquis Giovanni Battista Raggi, patrician of Genoa. From then until today for the Raggi family the castle of Roatto has been the family fortress meeting point of the generations, a place of memory of carefree summers full of affection and joy and at the same time education in respect and care for a good that has gone through the history of a millennium. The current structure corresponds to the radical 18th-century restoration that began in 1722, as shown by the State Archives of Turin, to adapt the original military building as a country residence. From the main square of the village between the town hall and the parish church (Saint Radegonda supervises the community of 374 inhabitants) you can access the property, immediately skirting the old house of the keepers of 253sqm. arranged on three floors. The fusion of the military and the 18th century is the distinctive figure of the building that is already perceived as entering the garden. From the lower floor with the barrel-turned features and the central driveway (and the cellar below) you can access through the two stairs outside the first floor with the large panoramic terrace, the representative lounges, the dining room, the large kitchen and some rooms. The interior staircase leads to the second floor articulated in living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition to the mezzanines on the third floor, the surface below the roof could be recovered completely redone a few years ago. Currently, the net living area distributed on the two aulic floors is 1082 square meters. The surrounding land of 32,134 square meters. it includes the garden, the orchard and the beautiful large tree-lined meadow and romantically finally descends into the hilly forest of 18,250 square meters. In the private area it is possible to enter the helipad that would allow the use of the castle in transgressively contemporary modes and criteria. At Roatto Castle you can breathe the noble history along with the rural charm of these still unspoiled hills 40 minutes from Turin, halfway between the tollbooth of Asti West and the villanova tollbooth on Turin-Piacenza, an hour from Caselle, 90 minutes from the sea and ski slopes: in the background the imposing setting of the Alps reassures and captivates the eyes.
