A nice country house with great garden and lovely neighbors, including owls and cats. Great for walks and visiting small towns, some of them with stunning, old world architecture. The road from Casalborgone to the house is a bit narrow, but hardly any traffic. We loved the stay. Franca and husband Sergio are a wonderful couple with that Italian welcome. Great people and a great place.
Can't keep this little Piemontese gem a secret. Gotta tell you about it!
We arrived at Casa San Guiseppe CASALBORGONE much later, hours later than arranged, two extremely tired and stressed Australians to be greeted by our patient and understanding hosts, Franca and Sergio. That was the start of two wonderful weeks in this charming village in Piemonte and the warmest hospitality ever. Franca and Sergio are extremely proud of their village and region in general and are splendid ambassadors for Piemonte. The house itself is steeped in family history, is remarkably well equipped for anyone who likes to shop locally, buy seasonal produce and prepare their own meals. The house was huge, capable of accommodating 6 people. Bedrooms are spacious, two separate bathrooms give flexibility and we appreciated free wifi and a tv that offered some programs in English. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for preparing our own meals. Arriving at the end of September, we were treated to Piemonte enjoying an extended summer and found the back garden and paved area outside the kitchen were just the ticket to enjoy a leisurely lunch of roasted local pepperoni and melanzane ( all roasted in our oven) cheeses recommend by Franca and Sergio and purchased at the Monday market in CASALBORGONE. The friendly staff at the local PRONTO supermarket and Luisa and Alberto at AL RAVANIN specialty fruttivendolo soon got to know the Aussies who ventured out every day. My husband has Sicilian heritage, but speaks no Italian. I took Italian language classes ages ago and speak 'un poco'. Franca, like myself believes the best way to learn a language and a culture is to be daring and try, whether that is Italain or English. Perhaps other travellers might not like to stay the length of time that we did, but we live in a small Australain village and so tend to gravitate towards the 'village' atmosphere of somewhere such as CASALBORGONE. We found it an ideal base to make trips to Asti, Alba, Chivasso, Turin and Barbaresco.
Franca and Sergio treated us to a guided walk around CASALBORGONE followed by a festival dinner featuring local products. How lucky we were to be there for that celebration!! The following Sunday they arranged to pick us up and take us for a 'Sunday drive' to point out significant landmarks. Again we were treated to Franca and Sergi's genuine Piemontese hospitality and generosity. We will be spreading the word about this little gem of a place and the extra-ordinary and genuine hospitality of hosts Franca and Sergio.
Wonderful spot, roomy house and great reception.
We had a lovely time at the holiday home of Franca. The spot is wonderful with great views from the house including on the snow capped Alps in the distance. The house was roomy, clean, well furnished and fully equipped. We received a very warm welcome on arrival with a detailed tour of the house and some home grown vegetables and local wine.
As an example of the level of hospitality, when Franca noticed we were not familiar with the Italian way of making coffee she delivered a coffee maker the very next day to facilitate us.
We can recommend staying at this home, also with children.
Sehr schönes Haus
Das Haus ist sehr schön, Ausstattung wie im Beschrieb. Die Lage sowie der Garten einfach traumhaft. Franca ist eine sehr unkomplizierte, liebe Frau. Wir haben den Aufenthalt mit 4 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern sehr genossen. Danke Franca!
Mooi oud familiehuis in de heuvels bij Casalborgone. Franca en Sergio zijn heel vriendelijke mensen die er alles aan doen om je een goed verblijf te bieden. Het huis is zeer ruim en aangenaam en alles wat je nodig hebt is aamwezig. Groot pluspunt is dat er overal in huis horren voor de ramen zitten, waardoor je de (vele) muggen prima buiten het huis kunt houden. Wij hebben van ons verblijf genoten!
Bedankt voor het respecteren van ons huis. We doen er alles aan om de muggen die alleen deze maand in de schemering aanwezig zijn (misschien vinden ze dit heuvelachtige verblijf ook wel leuk) weg te houden. Franca e Sergio
The area where the house is located is on a hill, between the city of Turin and the historic city of Asti. Visits to these two cities are recommended. Outdoor sports are compatible with the permanence in our territory. To recommend healthy walks during which you can admire beautiful views, or bicycle routes on both flat and ups and downs.
During the summer the territory offers countless village festivals where you can taste typical dishes.
