The North West Italy region

Located in the heart of the white truffle producing area of Piedmont, Mombercell an easy drive from the epicentre of the Slow Food Movement in Bra and Alba, with it's International Truffle Festival. It is also just 20 minutes away from the the Provincial capital Asti which is famous for Italy's oldest horse racing Palio and International Wine competition. Whether you want to browse in the weekly market of Nizza Monferrato or go wine tasting in Barolo, hiking or golfing, you will be spoiled for choice.

Indeed, Mombercelli is ideally located for day trips to the beach on the Ligurian coast, skiing or mountain trekking in the Italian Alps, or shopping for designer clothes in Turin or Milan.

Asti

Mombercelli is one of the principal areas where the prized white truffles are found in Piedmont. Our neighbour is a regular lecturer at Eataly in Turin, and in the Truffle season, when he is not busy running his agriturismo restaurant he is happy to show novices how he goes truffle hunting with his dogs. Mombercelli holds its annual Truffle Festival every 3rd Sunday in October.

The culture of teh grape is evident everywhere. The gently rolling hills are covered with vineyards, and local wines include Barbera, Moscato, Gavi, sparkling wines of Asti and the lesser known dry Cortese. Wine tastings in the many local independent wine producers is a great way to spend the afternoon.

During the summer months (June-August) Mombercelli's public open air swimming pool is a great place to cool off and see the locals at play. There is a 25m pool, a toddler pool, jacuzzi, tennis court, football pitch, beach volley ball court, a bar as well as wonderful restaurant.

Nizza Monferrato, just 20 minutes drive away has a wonderful Friday market, with seasonal locally grown produce is available. In June the Gara de Botti (barrel race) sees teams of careering winemakers pushing enormous wooden barrels, racing through the streets of the town.

Canelli, just 15mins drive away, holds every June a historic re-enactment of a C17th Seige of the town. Also not be be missed is a visit to the Cathedrals of Canelli, wonderful subterranean wine cavens that have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Sparkling wines from this area have been drunken by the aristocracy of Europe for centuries.

"Tranquil Home in the Heart of Piedmont"

Cascina del Forno is truly a gem hidden in the hills of Piedmont. We spent a week here with friends and we felt that we truly had a taste of the real Italy, away from the crowds and the well worn pat… More
