Type: Farmhouse accommodation Geographical Location: Hill Accommodations:
In a panoramic position we have a typical Monferrato estate used as holiday-farm, with courtyard, wide garden, rustic parts and cellar with internal part made of tufa. The property is completed with a 16 hectare hilly land. The holiday-farm is situated at more than 200 mt on sea level in a dominating area among the Basso Monferrato vineyards. The holiday-farm provides its clients with a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere over thirty years where you can taste the family cuisine of typical Langhe dishes accompanied by the wines of our production (Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino d’Asti). The holiday-farm was founded in 1973 by a pioneer in this field: “Maestro” Michele Dafarra. In the early 1900’s, it was an old house occupied by a single family of farmers; today it is still home to that same family’s descendants.
