A charming hilly area, that comprises the winelands of Langhe and Monferrato.

These cities offer splendid restaurants with great wines and local Piedmont cuisine.

The climate is warm but more comfortable compared to Mid and South Italy.

In Asti: Circolo Golf Città d'Asti ( and Golf Feudo d'Asti ( Other activities are for instance horse riding, (bike) trekking, mountain biking, climbing, cycling, and swimming.

Ippovia del Monferrato allows for horseback riding in the splendid landscape of the Asti hills. This is a 230 km itinerary and the route has been divided into 13 stages, with rest stops ready to receive horses and riders. In addition, there are eight inner roads extending the entire selection of practicable trails for another 150 km.

Even in autumn there are many celebrations and events, such as Palio d'Asti, truffle markets, wine-, and Piedmont food festivals.


Moncalvo - 'the smallest city in Italy' - is 3 km away. The centre has a nice piazza, a weekly market on Thursday and monthly antique market on every first Sunday. There are really good restaurants with local specialties and pizzerias, as well as delis and supermarkets. On the city piazza you can have a lovely cappuccino for only 1.30 euro and a pizza for 5 euro.

It is said, that Piedmont can be compared with Tuscany 30 years ago. Just as beautiful, pristine, well preserved.

The famous Palio d'Asti 9 (spectacular horse race) is held every 3rd Sunday of September.

"Gorgeous villa, lovely views and a great pool. Piemonte magic!"

Perched on the top of a Piemonte hill, next to a stunning chapel and just one other holiday home. Villa Cioccaro has a stunning location, surrounded by rolling hills topped with beautiful villas, towers, towns, villages, and vineyards. We arrived during a heatwave, which made for some very warm nights. However, the pool was a godsend. The housekeeper, Patrizia, and Claudio her husband, who looks after the pool, and their wonderful daughter, Federica were helpful, welcoming and very friendly. The villa's interior has been appointed to a very high standard with some lovely touches such as the iPod dock, fantastic coffee machine, DVDs and lovely fluffy towels. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped. The satellite TV was dominated by Dutch channels, not surprisingly as the owners are Dutch, but it's a very minor point as we spent a lot of time in the pool, eating on the terrace, or relaxing watching DVDs. It's about a 10min drive to a good local supermarket. We would love to return.
