Where you’ll be

Mombercelli, Asti, Italy

Cascina del Forno is located in the centre of white truffle hunting district. Our neighbour runs a local restaurant specialising in truffles, and is able to take guests truffle hunting on his land during the season, with prior arrangement. He is usually keen to sell visitors any that are found.

Mombercelli has its annual Truffle Festival during the 3rd weekend of October. While the more well known International Truffle Festival in Alba is just 25 mms drive away.

You have heard of the Palio in Sienna - well, Asti which is just 20mins drive from the house, holds an even older Palio horse race on the 3rd Sunday of September. It is replete with a medieval parade, acrobatic flag throwing competition, and of course the bare-back horse race around the main square of Asti. Unlike its Sienniese counterpart, there are hardly any tourists at this event. It is an amazing feast of local tradition, excitement and colour.

In the week running up to the Palio, Asti also hosts Italy's most important wine fair and competition, The Douja D'Or. This segues immediately into an amazing food festival of the Sagra, in which local communities, dressed in historic costumes, host stalls selling food they have prepared themselves. It is quite a sight to see the large market square filled with steaming cauldrons of stews, meat roasting on spits etc, surrounded by thousands of people eating a tressle tables, served by wenches in long skirts, and men in breaches.

Barbera wine is produced locally and there are lots of wineries to visit and experience tastings. Bra, the home of the Slow Food Movement is just 35 mins drive away, and Barolo and Barbaresco are near by also. It is a great place to base yourself if you are keen to go wine tasting.

Hi I am Jo. I have been renting my house in Italy for several years now, and enjoy sharing my Italian home with visitors from all over the world. We came and lived in Mombercelli for two years in order to undertake the renovation of the house. Learnt Italian along the way, helped in no small measure by the kindness of our neighbours and our wonderful architect who did a fantastic job of creating a modern rustic transformation of the house. We are firm believers in eco principles, and the house is lovely an cosy in winter, while light filled and cool in summer. I feel quietly smug when I take luxurious showers with water warmed from the solar panels on the roof. While I live in London for most of the year, I love the peace and quiet of the Cascina del Forno. We go there every school holiday to refresh our batteries. Whether it is here or when visiting other destinations I love to go to the local market and buy fresh vegetables and produce and come back and have a to at cooking up local delicacies. But there is nothing quite like wandering out and picking zucchini or peaches from our garden and bringing them warm to the table. Our guests love it too! We hope to welcome you soon at Cascina del Forno.
