Rif. # 035
To discover and appreciate the rustic beauty of Cessole, it is necessary to climb up the old winding and narrow street that runs alongside the houses of the ancient lords until you come out in the square of the parish church Nostra Signora Assunta, a daring eighteenth-century building rich in sumptuous baroque decorations. The loggia of the first market in the valley opens in this square and the complex representation of the Living Nativity ends on Christmas Eve. The building located below the parish church is the oratory of the Confraternita dei Battuti. It is accessed via a scenic side door or directly from the inside, via a spiral stone staircase. The entire historic center of Cessole has maintained a frank medieval character and is particularly impressive in the evening, when careful lighting highlights stones, archivolts and dry stone walls.
The Bio Agri-farm is located in the heart of the Langa Astigiana, between Acqui Terme, Canelli and Alba, a landscape of rare beauty where the harmony of colors in every season gives the area a special charm. In this peasant quiet environment you can spend relaxing stays away from the stress and chaos of the city with the possibility of being in contact with nature and walking or cycling through woods and hills. Excellent starting point for exploring the wine-growing landscapes of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato since 2014, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It offers both bed and breakfast and restaurant services with home cooking. The service is characterized by an accurate welcome in a family atmosphere and by a high quality level of the environments. The structure provides:
– a room in the farmhouse with exposed Langa stone and large private bathroom with double bed and / or single bed (for the 1 night DAY package)
– a studio apartment with equipped kitchenette and coffee table, dressing room and bathroom with shower, double bed and single bed (for the WEEK stay package of 5 nights)
