Cascina 47 is a more than two hundred year old farmhouse. It was
recently renovated to a high standard, emphasizing its old walls,
vaulted ceilings and other original features, whilst incorporating
all modern comforts. The former loft and garages have been turned
into living space. The furniture in the house echoes this mix of
old and new. Moreover you will find ample space and comfort, a
necessity when sharing a house with twelve people.

The farmhouse contains in total six large bedrooms, all with two
single or a double bed, and four bathrooms containing spacious
showers (one with a large bath) of modern Italian design.

Furthermore there is a loft style living room of some 45 m² with
adjacent a large terrace overlooking the vineyards towards the Alps.
The entrance hall leads to a large kitchen equipped to a high
standard, and a separate study. The house has its own telephone and
internet connection, whilst an international satellite provides
international radio and television. Outside, you will find a
separate laundry and utility room. Floor plan

Swimming pool

The farmhouse and its swimming pool are situated on a hill
overlooking vineyards and wooded hills with stunning views towards
the Alps and the more rugged scenery of the Alte Langhe. The
position of the house and swimming pool allows you to enjoy the sun
from early morning to late in the evening. Old fruit and nut trees,
as well as a number of covered areas, provide ample shelter from sun
and wind. The swimming pool is fifteen metres long and a large
garden surrounding it has been fenced in for safety reasons. This
area naturally runs over into a wild flower meadow.

A large grass area completes this part of the property that in total
comprises some 5000 m².

Walking distance

One can reach our village on foot via a path that runs along the
back of the property. San Donato boasts a church, a tabacchi (a
small supermarket that also sells fresh bread) and a restaurant cum



Food & Wine

The Southern Piedmont is dotted with numerous small villages with
castles, churches or convents that can be seen from afar. A number
of stately homes open their doors and gardens during the summer

Mango has a beautiful castle. Inside you will find a restaurant and
the Enoteca Regionale for wine tasting.

The villages of Barolo and Barbaresco - famous worldwide for their
wines - are within a short driving distance. Not surprisingly in an
area famous for its wines, good food is just as important and a
stone throw away. ‘Foodies’ will find themselves in heaven; The Slow
Food movement did not originate for nothing in this part of the

You will find numerous Michelin star, and family run restaurants to
pizzerias within a fifteen minute drive.

Different wine and food festivities are organised from Easter until
early December.

During the summer months the villages organise their own smaller
fete. Not a week passes without one being held somewhere.

Walking, cycling, riding and far more

The bureau of tourism has set out a number of local tours that can
be done on foot, by (mountain) bike or on horse back, which will
take you through beautiful countryside. Other outdoor activities
from rafting to paragliding are also available.


A total of seven 18 hole golf courses and a number of challenging 9
hole golf courses, within a radius of 50 km, should be able to
satisfy the average golfer.

Further information on the website.

Art, music and theatre

Particularly during the summer months cultural events are held all
over Southern Piedmont.

Day trips

Turin - Milan - Genoa

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).

Tip: Visit one of the Italian gardens or old stately homes en route.

Alba - Asti - Aqui Terme and many more

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”


A day at the seaside in the charming old town of Noli, (about one
hour’s drive) will let you experience how unspoilt the Mediterranean
still can be.

Tip: Combine your day at the beach with a visit to Savona (10
minutes from Noli)

In the Cascina you will find an updated list of events.
