“Our Stay at Cascina Bricchetto”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Our group of five stayed at Cascina Bricchetto, in the Grape Pergola House, from September 19 to 25, 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We found the bedrooms to be spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated with antique furniture.
We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen.

The house is situated on a high hill, with an excellent view of the Piemonte region and the Alps beyond. While the house is in the country, it is close to several small towns which enabled us to easily shop for groceries. As well, it is within a reasonable driving distance to several of the more remarkable towns of the region such as Asti, Alba, Bra, Acqui Terme, and many of the wine-related villages (Barolo, Barbaresco and Neive).

We found Giovanna to be an extremely welcoming and helpful host. It is obvious that she knows and loves the region well. She will arrange visits to local wineries and other activities of interest.

We highly recommend the house, and would gladly return if we were in the region again.

“Amazing location, amazing property, amazing hospitality!”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We went with a large group and rented both houses - they were, clean, comfortable, and truly charming with sweeping views, and we loved the shaded veranda for reading and dining. Giovanna and her assistant Amelia were wonderful hosts, and they absolutely made the visit. We were traveling with our 19 month old and when we arrived, we found a crib and high chair set up, a small bathtub waiting, and a special set of plastic dishes for the little guy. When they couldn't find a babysitter for us, Amelia even stepped in so we could go out for the evening! They prepared a fabulous brunch (cheeses, homemade jams, breads and cakes etc.) and amazing dinner for our group, and made spot-on recommendations for dining and wine tasting in the area. The hospitality and local perspective truly made the visit - we can't recommend Cascina Bricchetto highly enough!

“A wonderful week in Piedmont”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and I spent a heavenly week at the Bread Oven House. The setting is truly magical-- we woke up several mornings and were able to see the Alps in the distance. We were lucky enough to visit during the final days of grape harvesting and it was fascinating to see first hand about the importance of wine making to the region.

Giovanna was a perfect host. She arranged for several visits to wineries and each was special. We also consulted her on recommendations for other sites and restaurants and each suggestion was great. She takes great pride in her houses and the region and that clearly comes through in her hospitality

The house was immaculate and very comfortable. Glassware and linens were spotless and the bathrooms and bedrooms pristine. And the setting is just indescribable. Once you get used to the hilly climb up to the house, you feel on top of the world. We ended up just loving the region and will return to explore more of the lovely small towns and villages and the delicious wine of the region.

Our two sons joined us for s few days-- both are in their late twenties, from New York City, well traveled and often sophisticated in their opinions-- but their eyes grew bigger and bigger as they explored the lovely countryside. And, we all topped it off with a evening game of ping pong in Giovanna's yard, complete with wine and vistas that are one- of- a- kind.

You have opened the ping pong table in beauty!
Days of Harvest are tiring for us and were fascinating for you, interruptions due to rain and the many hours of work that you have seen were important to understand more about us: "the langhetti" (inhabitants of the Langhe).
I enjoy reading what you have written on the Cà dra Topia emerged from your experience, are certainly useful information to prospective guests.
Many thanks. It will be a pleasure to your return!

“Luxurious holiday home with majestic view”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Giovanna, the hostess and owner of this luxurious and charming holiday house, has so much to offer. Prior to our arrival, Giovanna had sent us several, interesting suggestions of activities in which we could partake to make our stay in this beautiful region a memorable one. She even did some additional research to find a traditional, cultural festival (folk dance and musicians) so that we could experience the culture of the people of the Piedmont region.

Upon our arrival, we were met by Giovanna who welcomed us with open arms. She walked us through the house explaining how the appliances and fireplace worked, shown us where everything was and made us feel very comfortable.

Cascina Bricchetto-Cà Der Forn is located on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards. It is immaculate and tastefully decorated with antiques.
The kitchen and washrooms are well equipped with everything from dishes, pots and pans, spices, pasta noodles, towels and linen, toiletries, detergents, etc. Two bottles of local wine, homemade jams, hazelnuts from Giovanna's orchards were on the counter upon our arrival.

The view from our place was exceptional, even on cloudy days. On a clear day, you can actually see the Alps at a distance – absolutely stunning, panoramic view.

Giovanna is very knowledgeable about Italy, and specifically of the Langhe region and all that it has to offer. She has many connections in the various businesses and it is easy for her to make suggestions that will best suit your needs. In her professional and generous self, she taught us how to make a Tirami Sù and shared with us her garden herbs.

I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wishes to live a great experience, away from the crowds.

Difficult was finding the music and traditional dances Occitane the Cuneo valleys, your satisfaction is my reward.
We have a fairly wide range of proposals, I am also available to seek / provide the answer to the wishes of the guests (in this case also the "Tiramisu"), last year another special experience was to organize a tour in the old stone mills operating in the Langhe.
Thank you for review and I hope to see you again in the future, you still have many things to discover!

“Picture-perfect setting, comfortable home, lovely hostess.”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in the Ca Da Tropia home, which was well-equipped, clean, and comfortable. Giovanna does an excellent job attending to the little things which make one's stay all the more pleasant. For example, each bathroom had a little basket of multiple washcloths, and a hairdryer. The kitchen was also well-equipped. The views from either side of the place were amazing. Rolling hills of vineyards, with the Alps in the background (when it was clear enough to see them). We enjoyed grabbing our cameras (and glasses of wine), and trying to find the best place to capture the sun setting over the mountains. Every view was "the best." Giovanna arranged winery tours/tastings at both Caschina Bruciata and Dacasto Duilio. We thoroughly enjoyed both wineries, which had wonderful, well-priced wines.

Thank you, you have been kind guests and correct! I hope in your return maybe in a different season to re-discover our beautiful territory.
The cellars are located in the area of production of Barbaresco (Cascina Bruciata) and Monferrato (Duilio Da Casto) production area of Barbera d'Asti. Each winery produces different types of wine:
- Cascina Bruciata: Barbaresco, Dolcetto, Barbera Langhe, Nebbiolo,
- Duilio Da Casto: 3 types of Barbera d'Asti, Rosso Monferrato, Rosé,
during the tasting they will taste the different types in the company and with the explanations of the producer who transmits his passion and commitment.
