A corner of Italy which encapsulates unique gastronomic delights, often only whispered as secrets to gourmets around the world. Here Nebbiolo reigns, with its noble sons -the Barolo and Barbaresco, protected by castles, towers and fortified villages that take us back to medieval times of struggles and splendours: pilgrims, salt merchants, soldiers of fortune, the Crusaders, and Benedictine monks have all trodden this soil leaving a heritage, a sign, a legacy. But it was the farmers whose centuries of toil shaped the hills into the breathtaking landscape which widens the eyes of the tourist today.
And under these so-special hills, the ultimate and most secret treasure: the White Truffle of Alba: the “grey diamond” that made Cavour crazy and sent Vittorio Emanuele II into ecstasy , the Tuber Magnatum Pico made world-famous by the youngest son of a poor family of sharecroppers, Giacomo Morra, founder of the Fiera and true deus ex machina of the Langhe.
Activities: to fill your holidays, you can use the municipal sport facilities, with tennis court, soccer field and equipped locker rooms, few hundreds of meters from the agri-tourism.
The territories of Roero and historical center of Castellinaldo are suitable to go for a relaxing walk or to go for a ride.
Events: In the autumn, there are plenty of manifestations connected with wine and truffle, flagship of Piedmontese gastronomy, and in a particular way of Alba.
Not to lose is the rendezvous, in October, with the “International Alba White Truffle Fair”
