Fantastic house with a great hostess
We had an amazing time at Cascina Bricchetto. Giovanna deserves more than a 10 out of 10. She really goes above and beyond to ensure that her guest have everything they can wish for. The house is very nice. Nicer even than the photos. The finishes are very good with modern amenities like double glazing. Thanks to the shutters on the windows the house stayed a nice temperature, even though there was a heat wave outside. So we slept comfortably. The house is located with 360 views of vineyards and the surroundings. The views are beautiful. There is a very nice garden. Our children loved playing in them. And there are two nice terraces with a roof where you can enjoy the views and a nice glass of wine or coffee or dinner. The house is very clean. Given the farm-like environment, it is amazing how clean the place is. Giovanna really takes care of her guests, the house and everything in it. We would love to come back someday.

Seeing our job appreciated is pleased, thank you kind guests! I add information relating to the internal temperature of the house, despite the torrid external temperature, the stones with which in ancient times it was built are very insulating and with the modern precautions inserted in the restructuring they produce the results described. Of course, in winter the result is the opposite.

Excellent, quiet Piemonte countryside
This was our second stay at Cascina Bricchetto. Again, we had a marvellous week. Giovanna is a great host, she is helpful in suggestions and reservations, she made us a great Italian breakfast and very welcoming. So we feel at home! The house is spacious and very clean, with a big kitchen and comfortable beds. There is a perfect place to sit and relax outside, beautiful panaroma and peaceful atmosphere. Alba, ony 10 minutes away, is an attractive old village, good for shopping! Further there are many opportunities for having excellent diners (with matching excellent wines), visits to winetasting and truffle hunting. You won't be disappointed!

Outstanding host, terrific property
Giovanna was helpful before we came, suggesting and making reservations. prepared dinner the evening we arrived and to provided breakfast. That made for a relaxing start to the trip when we arrived to a warm welcome and her beautiful property in a stunning location. Food was delicious and plentiful.The beautifully modernised house is exceptionally well equipped and stocked. Couldn't ask for more! Strongly recommend a visit.

I am always available to support the realization of the wishes and requests of the guests, through the correspondence before the stay with the future guests the stay will be better achieved and will meet the expectations, also avoiding misunderstandings that would make the stay for the guests not as satisfying as it is happened with some who thought there was a pool despite it was not declared and there were no photos. Very nice is the recognition of our work and the appreciation of the beauty that surrounds Cascina Bricchetto Langhe. Thank you kind guests!

Una meraviglia
Abbiamo trascorso una splendida settimana autunnale in questa meravigliosa ed appartata dimora rurale situata nella zona delle Langhe turisticamente meno frequentata ma di altrettanta bellezza paesaggistica. La cascina perfettamente ristrutturata ha mantenuto il suo carattere autentico e l'arredamento di ricercato gusto corrisponde all'estetica genuina del posto. Ottima la posizione tra i filari di vite, incantevole la vista sulle colline adiacenti e sulla catena alpina all'orizzonte, coloratissimi i tramonti. Il tutto accompagnato dalla squisita e discreta presenza della signora Giovanna, sempre disponibile per due chiacchiere, consigli di ogni genere e grande amante di giardinaggio. Un soggiorno da consigliare a chi apprezza la natura in semplicità e modestia senza le pretese di un lusso esagerato!

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine chez Giovanna dont l’accueil a été très chaleureux. Avec beaucoup de gentillesse,Giovanna était toujours à notre disposition et à l’écoute de tous nos souhaits en prenant la peine de toujours nous parler en français. La maison très confortable meublée avec beaucoup de goût et au calme bénéficie d’une superbe vue sur les vignobles et collines environnantes.Giovanna nous a préparé un excellent dîner et petit déjeuner le jour de notre arrivée.Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de ce séjour et de Giovanna.

Amazing Stay
Our family stayed at the house for 4 nights and had just the most wonderful time. The host is very welcoming and caring. She prepared a crib, high chair and toys for my 9 months old. She also helped me purchase diapers and baby food. We had a cooking class with her and it was the highlight of our trip! Her cooking skills are amazing. We made fresh pasta, meat sauce, tiramisu and etc. The views from the place are out of the world too! Highly recommend a stay there!

Your 5 year old daughter was the youngest participant in our Cooking Class, amazingly he really worked on some of the experience steps! The various games available to the kids have been appreciated as well as the outdoor BBQ. While participating in the search for truffle these guests were very lucky: the dogs found two truffles (one white and one black), so they could make comparisons during the tasting. They were the first Chinese guests, extraordinarily friendly. Hope in your return.

Repeat Visit
Having spent a wonderful week at the Bread Oven House last year, we returned this year for the same period. It was as fabulous as we remembered it to be. Giovanna again had two bottles of wine to welcome us, and we loved them both. Giovanna also still had fruit and nuts from her own trees, and a pantry stocked with the basics. We love coming here because it truly is like a home away from home for us. The house has everything you need for your stay and you don't have to waste time, money and effort trying to get the numerous small necessities that are expensive and inconvenient to get in small quantities. Giovanna is at your disposal to arrange any activity that you wish to partake in around the area and to give you advice. We will return again next year for our annual trip. We hope this place and Giovanna never change so we can come back year after year for a long time.

Rust en ruimte in een heerlijke streek
We hadden een heerlijke week in Cascina Bricchetto! Het huis was ruim, heel erg schoon, fijne ruime keuken met alle benodigdheden. Naast het comfortabele huis is er heel veel buitenruimte met een eigen eettafel, lekkere ligstoelen en prachtig uitzicht. Maar vooral: de stilte, zeldzaam in Nederland! En een andere aanbeveling: onze gastvrouw Giovanna, die met raad en daad klaar stond! Al voor vertrek ontvingen we een mail met heel veel suggesties om te doen in de omgeving, Giavanna heeft onze keuzes voor ons geregeld. Zo spraken we af dat Giovanna voor ons het ontbijt voor de eerste ochtend zou verzorgen (tegen betaling natuurlijk) : aanrader!! Ook kregen we diverse verrassingen uit de moestuin. Kortom: we hebben genoten en gaan zeker terug als we wee in Piemonte zijn.

Warm welcome, gracious hospitality, personal touch.
We share many of the same positive experiences of Cascina Bricchetto that are mentioned in other reviews. Our time at the" Bread Oven House" was simply delightful. We were two couples traveling together. Time in the Piedmont was to be our "slow travel" week following busy/crowded times in Venice and the Cinque Terre. All of our advance communications with Giovanna were thorough and welcoming. We much appreciated her offers of help with our itinerary, and at the same time appreciated her flexibility given our need to wait and see what we might like to do (based on weather, energies, spontaneous choices, etc.). The hilltop location, vistas, scents and sounds of late May in the Langhe were gorgeous and thoroughly intoxicating--even on cloudy days.This is a place that is well-loved and has been restored and tended to with great care. Giovanna's abundant fruit trees and garden are a testament to her hard work. The accommodations were spotless, aesthetics pleasing,(the pictures don't do full justice to how lovely everything is!)-- fully stocked kitchen with lots of pantry items, and of course, the welcome bottles of local wine! We opted for breakfast for the morning after we arrived and were loaded up with typical cheeses, bread and jam, ripe cherries, tomato sauce and a hazelnut cake made by Giovanna herself -- to die for!! This food lasted us the entire week. Giovanna was available, but never intrusive, and urged us to make ourselves at home, which we truly felt comfortable doing. Local market schedules, maps and guide-pamphlets were provided. We chose to take a cooking class with Giovanna and spent a memorable two afternoons in her kitchen learning the ins and outs of her salsa verde, risotto al fungi porcini, ravioli fatti in casa. The stories shared, traditional techniques learned, and delicious resulting meals were honestly, the highlight of our visit. There is so much to see and do in the region and Casino Bricchetto is situated ideally for trips to Neive, Alba, Bra, Barbaresco, for anyone interested in the abundance the region has to offer. Giovanna will guide you and will help you get more of an insider's view of the local culture. We barely scratched the surface. I'd highly recommend Cascina Bricchetto to anyone who wants to slow down, enjoy a little slice of heaven away from the crowds, listen to the wind in the vines the cuckoo bird, and still be within reach of all of the history, art, food and wine the region has to offer.
