The Nest Small Cottage

A romantic Italian small cottage set amid Italy’s countryside This romantic cottage, 431 square feet, was once a barn for goats.

I have found the coolest small cottage on the planet, called The Nest.. If the name alone doesn’t conjure up a charming, quaint, small house, the pictures definitely will.

This romantic cottage was once a barn for goats.. but now you can actually stay in the 431 square foot dream house (for two.)  We’ll give you all the contact info at bottom of post.  For now, let’s jump in and look at the cottage pictures!  Prepare to be amazed.

Outside View of The Nest
Could it get any more charming?  And it’s located in Italy’s Langhe region: A hilly area to the south and west of the river Tanaro in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont.  The stone house with tile roof amidst a rural countryside… I’m there!  Apparently this area has not been invaded by mass tourism, yet.

Really, for this charming cottage, I’m mainly going to let the pictures speak for themselves.. But would you look at the view from inside?  OK, I’ll hush up now..

Small Kitchen Area

I have to say this (because I’m very picky about it).. Look how clean this house is.  And is it too cute how they’ve carved a space under the stairs for a tiny kitchen?  Just goes to show how you can indeed get optimum living space from the smallest of spaces.  AND the small kitchen even has a tiny window!

Dining Area

Bedroom from another angleWow!  Love the high ceiling with wood and wood beams.  Rustic and warm.  Perfect balance for the hardwood floors and crisp white small bedroom.

Small Bedroom Door
I am SO digging these doors. Don’t know that I’ve ever seen anything like them. You won’t find those at Lowes! Notice the doorknob.. cute little lizard.

small bathroom
Man.. this tiny cottage continues to delight. Sweet bath! Love the you can get those at Lowes.. although it looks like a stone sink so it would definitely be a special order.

PatioNow for a little rest and relaxation, we go out to the backyard. Can’t you almost hear the silence? 🙂

Flowers by the Pool

A pool? Well, I guess so. You’ll want to contact owner to make sure it’s a private pool, but it certainly appears that way.

Now that you’ve seen the Nest, here is more info about this charming cottage to rent taken from the travel guide.  The Nest cottage website is >>

The numerous villages of “Alta Langa”, full of rural life and rich of culture, can not only generate ideas about interesting tourist and cultural activities but also a lot of opportunity for who is interested by the traditional gastronomical culture. Indeed Murazzano is well known for his “toma”, a sheep milk cheese, for his hazelnuts and for his ancient restaurants. Murazzano is the ideal place where to spend relaxing holidays in touch with nature and rural life.
