where we are





Zabaldano lies 500 mts above sea-level at the southern end of  Piedmont Region and Asti Province, close to the border with Liguria (which is where the Italian Riviera is) ; in fact, on most summer days we have a pleasant southerly breeze the locals call “marino”, i.e. “sea wind”. The farm buildings are near the top of a hill overlooking the Bormida river valley, at the end of an untarred stretch of road that ends in our yard. The view is breathtaking.

To reach us you’ll drive up about four kms from Vesime or Cessole village, between Acqui Terme and Cortemilia ; when we confirm your booking we shall send you more detailed instructions.

And once you get here...
What can you do, once you are here ? First of all you can relax in a wonderful setting, taking part - if you wish - in some of our farm activities, according to season : working in the vineyard and the hazelnut groves, making hay, harvesting grapes. We are an ideal starting point for walking and mountain-bike tours, for bird-watching and butterfly-watching, for picking wild mushrooms or chestnuts, walnuts and fruit. Nearby you’ll find a “bocce” court, tennis courts and a small swimming-pool ; an olympic-size pool and a 9-hole golf course are a half hour’s drive away in Acqui Terme, a pretty little town famous for its health and beauty spa. Shiatsu treatments are also available through a private therapist in a local village.
Should you feel like exploring - and it is a must, really ! -, you can drive to the beaches of the Italian Riviera for a day trip, or visit Alba, the truffle capital of the world, or Asti, or Turin. But most of all you should discover our “Langa” area, its timeless landscapes, art treasures, medieval hilltop villages and... its food and drinks ! From “Ravioli” to truffles (in season,i.e. late autumn), from goat and sheep cheese to hazelnut tarts, you’ll find endless delicacies accompanied by some of the best Italian wines (Barolo and Moscato, just to mention two of them)
