- Strada Provinciale Valle Bormida, 7
Sessame - (AT) - Italia
Agriturismo is located among the gently rolling hills of Langa Astigiana, a land of vineyards and local products such as Robiola de Roccaverano and Mostarda de Uva. The surrounding area has attractions such as the city of Acqui Terme with its lovely thermal waters and Canelli with its Humanity’s Heritage Award-winning wine cellars that are famed as the “Underground Cathedral”.
Not far away by road are the city of Alba with its truffles, Turin with its monuments and Genoa with its wonderful aquarium. These places may also be accessed by train. The farming Azienda (ranch house) is set among the peaceful rolling green hills of the town of Sessame: facing it is the WWF “oasis” La Garzaia della Valle Bormida, harboring a colony of gray heron.
Agriturismo is framed by vineyards where brachetto, moscato, barbera and dolcetto varietals are grown. The apartments are modeled on those of an old farm located near Villa Caffarelli.
The Villa was originally a two-storey construction, built in the mid-nineteenth century. The third storey was added together with the tower and the dovecot in 1909. It is surrounded by a copse of centenarian evergreen trees and parkland including lawns and antique fonts.
