Only a few kilometers and Alba and Asti await you with their cathedrals and medieval towers of intact historic centers.
You will arrive there among spectacular vineyards, slow horizons to the eyes marked by profiles of towers, castles, small churches, parish churches and ancient villages.
In Monferrato you will find the town of Bra , birthplace of Giovanni Arpino and now the capital of Slow Food , which has kept its baroque charm intact.
It is these unique qualities that have ensured that in 2014 these territories became part of the UNESCO world heritage list .
From our Bed & Breakfast you can admire:
– the Medieval Castle of Cisterna d ‘Asti , which houses the Museum of Arts and Crafts of the past.
– the Baroque Castle of Govone , famous for its Italian-style gardens;
– the Magliano Alfieri Castle , seat of the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions;
While, not far away, you will find:

– the Castle of Grinzane Cavour , home to the oldest Piedmontese Enoteca and the Grinzane Cavour Literary Prize.
There are many cultural events in the Langhe and Roero, especially in autumn, when the hills are dressed in a thousand colors, the harvest begins and the truffles perfume: in Asti the “ Duja ”, the “ Festivals ” and the Palio ; in Cherasco, every two years, the ” Cheese “, a riot of typical Piedmontese cheeses, national and foreign.
October is the feast of Alba , which is adorned with the drapes of the Palio, and the truffle beaten at the World Truffle Auction of Grinzane Cavour.
In April, in Alba, we meet for ” Vinum “, the wine festival.
But all year round it is dotted with markets, exhibitions, patronal feasts, castles and open farmhouses, to get to know and taste the typical products of the area: the great wines, fruit and vegetables of our Roero.
