  • We chose the guided tour with an actor who impersonated Cavour, dressed like him. It was a wonderful experience: he talked about himself and the history of the castle firsthand. Beautiful Experience

  • I took my biella boy to discover "my" territory of origin, he was enchanted. The castle is very nice at sunset even more, maybe.

  • Wine tasting, local history and some damn beautiful views... On a clear day, you can see beautiful panoramas of the surrounding hills from the castle parks- it makes for a truly magical setting for wedding photos I imagine. The castle itself is visitable; there is a museum on local culture and history and there is also a large wine cellar that helps you get your head around the various wines the Region of Piemonte actually produces.
  • On the way to the “International truffle fair of Alba”, we stopped in this beautiful fairytale castle. Awide and interesting selection of wines and even a restaurant with view. Panoramic and amazing place.
  • The castle is on the top of the small hill (like all other surrounding it :)) and it is has a stunning view. The whole place is simply perfectly renewed (mostly with EU funds) and has a museum of vinemaking and shop for selling local vines and other products. We havent bought vine but a local haselnut cream (pandan of Nutella, only much better). If you wanna take photos on a sunny day, or just plug out from.the daily routine this is a perfect spot :)
  • Very nice view. Clean and easy to find. Not much to do other than walk around the grounds, visit the gift shop and walk around town.
  • Butiful castle awesome view, lovely cafe near by
