The Bread Over House Cascina Bricchetto

Cascina Bricchetto Langhe, a hamlet of traditional Le Langhe stone farmhouses, can be found at Trezzo Tinella (Cn) about 10 Km from Alba and 3 km Barbaresco.

The views are extraordinary; a sequence of hills overlooked by Monviso and the Monte Rosa massif.

The farmhouse, possibly the oldest in the area, is situated at an altitude of 550m at the top of a peaceful remote hill surrounded by vineyards and hazelnut groves as far as the eye can see.  Two of the houses have recently been renovated to a very high luxury standard maintaining many original features and using natural and local materials. They are furnished with both antique and modern furniture and have the advantage that being built in stone which are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They are completely independent of one another.

Since 2008 the accommodation has held a prestigious certificate of quality given by Ospitalita Italiana.

Internet access within and outside the houses.

Your host also lives in the hamlet and on request will supply in your accommodation a delicious breakfast consisting of homemade cakes and jams prepared using old and genuine recipes.

In the grounds of Cascina Bricchetto you will find a covered area for eating al fresco, a covered parking area and various toys for the children e.g. swings, sandpit, rocking horse, skittles. From the house you can take many quiet country walks along the small country lanes.

Our homes offer the opportunity to personally experience the ‘charm of the old Piedmont’ inserted in a modern comfortable environment.

Living in an old stone farmhouse means of keeping cool in the summer and warmth in winter, the beauty and warmth of a wood fire that heats the radiators perhaps supplemented by a few hours of gas heating.

Experience the silence broken only by birds and some agricultural vehicle, rediscover the joy of the voices of children playing.

Enjoy the beauty of the ancient (vaulted brick ceilings, antique furniture in precious woods) joined to the efficiency of household appliances, enjoy the pleasure of a hot bath or shower at the right point and fragrant, live in the landscape that comes from the numerous and large windows to enjoy colorful sunsets on the balconies or terraces covered by drinking a glass of our beautiful wines.
