Profile

  • Type: Flat (3),
  • Guests: 9
  • Map: Hills
  • Type of accommodation: Bed & Breakfast

The agriturismo

The farmhouse lies 500 mts above sea-level at the southern end of Piedmont Region and Asti Province, close to the border with Liguria (which is where the Italian Riviera is); in fact, on most summer days there is a pleasant southerly breeze the locals call "marino", i.e. "sea wind". The farm buildings are near the top of a hill overlooking the Bormida river valley and Langhe, at the end of an untarred stretch of road.

The accommodation

Three small apartments are awaiting you in a wing of the big, old, lovingly restored farmhouse in which the owners live.
Each apartment is named after one of the many wild animal species of our hills (Fox, Badger and Deer) and includes a double bedroom, a bathroom with tub and/or shower, and a large sitting-room-cum-kitchen with one extra sofa-bed. It comes fully equipped: bed, bath and kitchen linen, books, radio, cutlery, dishes, pots and pans etc. The "Fox", which is on the ground floor, is fit for disabled guests on wheelchairs.

Breakfast is not served , but all that is needed for a pleasant, leasurely do-it-yourself awakening is supplied: milk, tea, coffee, biscuits, rusks, butter, homemade jams, honey from our bees ... You will be able to shop for any other foodstuffs at one of the weekly village markets or the little local shops, or directly at neighbouring farmers producing "dop" cheese and "doc" wines. Of course, if you don't feel like cooking you can sample the wonderful "trattorias", "agriturismi" and restaurants within a few miles from the farm.
And you can enjoy the wonderful view across the valley while relaxing in the heated Jacuzzi whirlpool in the open.

Activities and surrounding

You can relax in a wonderful setting, taking part in some of  the farm activities, according to season: working in the vineyard and the hazelnut groves, making hay, harvesting grapes. In late autumn, truffle fairs are held in all nearby towns.

This is an ideal starting point for walking and mountain-bike tours, for bird-watching and butterfly-watching, for picking wild mushrooms or chestnuts, walnuts and fruit. Nearby you'll find a "bocce" court, tennis courts and a small swimming-pool; an olympic-size pool and a 9-hole golf course are a half hour's drive away in Acqui Terme, a pretty little town famous for its health and beauty spa. Shiatsu treatments are also available through a private therapist in a local village.
Within 1 or 1 ½ hours from this farm house, you will be able to visit Asti, Alba, Torino and the Italian Riviera.

This was our 3rd time here on Zabaldano: the first time in 2004 for two, the second time in 2013 with our then 3-year-old son, Elias, and now in 2018 at Easter. Elias is already 8. Since this winter was especially long and cold, I was looking forward to spring in Piedmont for a l... Read more
