Property for sale on a hill with an enchanting view of the Viverone Lake. The property includes a completely renovated nineteenth-century Piedmontese farmhouse and 8 hectares of land, fenced and finely planted with fruit trees and flowers.

The property can be used as a private residence and as B&B or location for weddings and events. There is a large swimming pool surrounded by marvelous azaleas together with olive trees and kiwi plantations. There is also a pool house that includes a changing room, a bathroom and a small kitchen with a barbecue area.

The main part of the farmhouse has a main entrance, large kitchen, triple living-room with a fireplace, billiard room, library, separate dining area, laundry and wine cellar. Also on the ground floor there is a double room with a guest bathroom, service room with a bathroom, and guest bathroom.

On the first floor there are two double rooms with bathrooms and a TV area.

On the attic floor there are 4 mini apartments (each with an independent entrance) with 10 beds in total, 5 bathrooms and a shared area.

Detached from the farmhouse, there is a small house for caretakers with a double bedroom, bathroom, living-room with a kitchen with a view.

Roppolo is located in Piedmont (the province of Biella) – the strategic position between Vercelli and Ivrea and between Biella, Torinese and Monferrato. The mild climate and the land mainly exploited for agricultural purposes make this area well-known for the wine production including Erbaluce di Caluso and Canavese Rosso.

At the Castle of Roppolo, on the hills, near the Viverone Lake, there is Enoteca Regionale della Serra. Its foundation dates back to 1981. The Enoteca got its name from the Morenica peak of the Serra hills between Ivrea and Biella.

How to get to Roppolo? You can get there by taking the direction of Ivrea on the Santhià motorway (Turin-Milan motorway). In less than 10 minutes you’ll reach Roppolo (right before the Viverone Lake).

The Viverone Lake is the third largest lake in Piedmont, Italy, located between the extreme north-eastern part of the Canavese and the extreme southern part of the Biella area. The lake takes its name from the homonymous municipality to which it belongs. This lake is of glacial origin and was formed during the Quaternary era (as well as many lakes near the Alps), accompanied by tributaries and underground emissaries. The Viverone Lake is not only an important fish and tourist resource, but also an important archaeological site of prehistoric finds from the Bronze Age. In 2005, it was designated as a world heritage site.

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
