I have two dogs who share my days , and the female is called Peppa is a Pyrenean Shepherd 6 years old , the male is called Pippo and is a small mestizo 3 years.
In my life I have experienced so many things and met so many people , I have worked in both private and public companies and the last period of this phase I lived as a freelancer in many regions of Italy, while on vacation days ran to work and learn from technical experts and farmers the techniques of cultivation of the vineyards that surround the farm and I planted many trees , I finally decided to devote myself exclusively to the agricultural activities of Cascina Bricchetto Langhe and to proceed in the renovation of the ancient stone structure and obtain guest houses.
Giovanna purchased this chateau / country house in 1995
Why Giovanna chose Alba
I bought “Cascina Bricchetto Langhe” the year 1995, and some years ago I left my consultancy business and settled here to manage the farm operations. When I open the shutters in the morning, I often think: “how beautiful Monviso is in the sunshine, or how wonderful the clouds are in the sky , or how magical is the misty landscape, or, even how fairy-like the snowfall is!” Then when I close them in the evening, I see the lights of the small villages in the hills opposite (Diano d’Alba, La Morra) and of the houses scattered among the hills and I thank heartily my lucky stars what led me here, where you are surrounded by such beauty. It was during one of those moments that I thought I would like to share this marvel with other people as well and so I started renovating to create two completely autonomous accommodations to be used for farm holidays.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
Our homes offer the opportunity to personally experience the 'charm of the old Piedmont' inserted in a modern comfortable environment.
Living in an old stone farmhouse means of keeping cool in the summer and warmth in winter, the beauty and warmth of a wood fire that heats the radiators perhaps supplemented by a few hours of gas heating.
Experience the silence broken only by birds and some agricultural vehicle, rediscover the joy of the voices of children playing.
Enjoy the beauty of the ancient (vaulted brick ceilings, antique furniture in precious woods) joined to the efficiency of household appliances, enjoy the pleasure of a hot bath or shower at the right point and fragrant, live in the landscape that comes from the numerous and large windows to enjoy colorful sunsets on the balconies or terraces covered by drinking a glass of our beautiful wines.
