The area is still relatively unknown outside of Italy. Here you can still enjoy the countryside as it has been for centuries, cherished and respected by its population. Many famous Italian wines such as the Barolo and Barbaresco are produced in this area. Not only lovers of good food & wine will enjoy this area, within a range of 50 km there are seven 18 hole and a number of 9 hole golf courses. Nature lovers can hike along the many officially designated footpaths and enjoy the abundant wildlife.

With the new motorway Alba - Asti completed, which connects to the A 21, a day trip to Turin, Milan or Genoa has been made even easier. Whilst Milan and Genoa are better known, we have not met anybody who was not more than pleasantly surprised by Turin (one hour to the centre of town).

Three totally different provincial towns, dating back to different eras are worth visiting for their architecture. Shopping here is also very good, though on a smaller scale than in the above mentioned cities. All famous Italian brands - some even have their own shops - can be found in these towns. The large Saturday market in Alba - famous for its white truffle - is also worth a visit. The smaller town of Neive has been promoted to “one of the hundred most beautiful villages of Italy”
