The farm

The agricultural holding was founded in 2003, starting from the lot of about one hectare surrounding the farmstead, adjacent to the tourist facility, which included an already existing hazel grove. We cultivate raspberries, currants, strawberries and vegetables: tomatoes, zucchini, eggplants, potatoes, beans, French beans, fennels, cauliflowers and cabbages. During the winter 2004, the lot began to be converted, to obtain the certification of organic products and since February 2006, the products have been certified as "organic": with this certification, we want to guarantee to our customers, the quality of what we sell and serve.

In 2007, the cultivated area of the farm holding was expanded with the new lot consisting of about 4.5 hectares along the Tanaro River, near the farmstead, on which we grow barley and wheat.
Since fall 2008, after the restructuring works, four large rooms on the upper floor of the structure have been available, furnished with simplicity and taste: each room is equipped with private bathroom with shower, TV and internet connection.

La Tilia is the ideal place for families and children who wish to spend a day or stay even for long periods, with the possibility of a full-board service. Children can play outside, in the lawns surrounding the farmstead and also inside the facility, where one of the halls is dedicated to them.
The kitchen offers typical Piedmontese dishes, cooked with local organic ingredients coming from the vegetable garden and animals of the same farm holding. Breakfast is served in the hall inside the ancient cattle shed, now restructured, whose large windows allow to enjoy the meals viewing the surrounding panorama, warmed by the tepidness of the fireplace.
The rural tourist facility offers the possibility of walks or mountain-bike excursions.

During the spring, in the large-window hall or outdoors, inspired by the colours of the surrounding nature, a group of people gathers every Saturday afternoon to discover and experiment the water-colour technique, guided by a teacher-painter.
Ideal starting point to visit the nearby Langhe: leaving from Novello, Barolo, La Morra, Monforte travelling along the charming panoramic roads that connect them, until reaching Alba, the city famous for the truffle festival that takes place in autumn.

The city of Bene Vagienna with its archaeological site, Cherasco, famous for the prestigious antique market and the town of Mondovì with the sanctuary of Vicoforte nearby, are of remarkable interest.
During the winter season, it is possible to quickly reach the skiing facilities of Prato Nevoso and Frabosa.
