The neighbourhood

Small and peaceful town of 1000 inhabitants located only a few kilometers from Alessandria and Tortona.

Getting around

The Province of Alessandria lies in the extreme southeast of Piedmont that has for long been of strategic importance for its connections with Lombardy and Liguria.
The topography consists mainly of hills and valleys traversed by rivers;
A multiplicity of landscapes can be discovered in this land: the Monferrato hills, covered by vines and rich in color, uncontaminated nature, and dense woods of chestnut, oak and beech.
Many reserves safeguard the province's varied environment: the Parco Fluviale del Po Tratto Vercellese-Alessandrino, home to many colonies of birds; the Torrente Orba Natural Reserve; and the Capanne di Marcarolo Natural Park, where the Alpine flora flourishes alongside the Mediterranean scrub.

The area is also a natural location for wine production with outstanding wines the likes of Timorasso, Cortese di Gavi, Dolcetto, Brachetto, Grignolino and Barbera.
Tortona and the hills in the surroundings; Ovada and Gavi besides being known for the wine production, are towns rich in history and art, with monuments from many different epochs.
Many other treasures make any visit here special and nique: from the Acqui Terme spa to the goldsmiths of Valenza, now internationally-renowned. Finally, the Campionissimi of Novi Ligure Museum is dedicated to cycling, and was established in memory of two local athletes, Fausto Coppi and Costante Girardengo.
The Province of Alessandria provides many an opportunity for both active and relaxing vacations in the unadulterated countryside.
From Monferrato to Ovada, hiking, biking and riding trails abound amidst lush vegetation and charming hamlets.
Trails for cycle tourists wind through the Po River Park, Vercellese-Alessandrino Tract, and climbing enthusiasts will enjoy the Falesia di Gavi, a wall that invites climbers of varying levels to practice their sport in this magnificent landscape.
The Acqui Terme is an important spa and a modern wellness center; with its hot springs, it is perfect for rest rejuvenation. Otherwise, modern golf courses welcome professionals and amateurs alike.
For those looking for excitement, extreme sports are all the rage at the Bob & Downhill Park Val Curone and the Val Borbera Adventure Park, perfect for trekking, canoeing down steep descents, or competitive cycling.

Attend one or two of the various traditional festivals here, including the Festa Medievale with its historical procession through Cassine, the Santa Caterina Fair and the gastronomy exhibition Dolci Terre di Novi, both in Novi Ligure, and the Polenta Festival of Ponti.
Otherwise, the Fiera Nazionale del Tartufo (National Truffle Fair) is held in San Sebastiano Curone and the spectacular Historical Re-enactment of the Battle of Marengo in Alessandria, with parades and reconstructions of the most important combat scenes.

As with the gastronomy throughout Piedmont, the local cuisine is simple and authentic, and based on natural products.
Regional dishes are available everywhere, specifically "Il bagnetto", a vegetable sauce used to flavor boiled meats, or the bagna caoda, a dressing for vegetables made with oil, onion and anchovies.
Porcini mushrooms stand out among the local specialties, along with the precious truffles from Bormida Valley. Cured meats are a popular delicatesse, especially the filetto baciato in Aqui Terme and boiled beef salami from Mandrogne.
And the tasty Rabaton is made with ricotta, spinach, eggs and cheese.

Some of the delectable desserts include krumiri, typical cookies from Casale Monferrato; the renowned chocolate of Novi Ligure; chestnut cakes; soft and hard torrone (nougat); and amaretti (sweet and bitteralmond-flavored cookies).

The b&b was beautifull: very specious and luxious rooms, very clean, a stylish bathroom and welcoming hosts! They provided us with nice ideas for the area like a small food festival in the next village and Laura's husband even led us the way on his scooter :) the breakfast was delicious with always something baked by Laura herself and fresh fruit from the garden. They were really sweet for our 3 year old daugther. Thank you for the nice days!
