About Giovanna

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 villa in 1995

Why Giovanna chose Cuneo

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 villa 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.

Six of us stayed in this most picturesque 2 storied hillside home for a week, and had a wonderful time.We had a double bedroom ensuite for each couple, the top units having panoramic views over rolling hillsides of vineyards.We bought food locally and cooked in the fully equipped kitchen,having afternoon tea and evening dinners on a covered verandah next to the house, which had it's own views over the rear valleys.Early morning walks took us past fruit trees and our host Giovanna's prolific garden,full of delicious tomatoes and other vegetables,herbs and fig trees.Her advice about local restaurants and providores was invaluable,and given with great bonhomie.We loved our stay.

Great location, very comfortable, marvellous

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay at Cascina Bricchetto after looking at several properties in the area of Alba and Asti. We made the right decision!! We were travelling with two other couples and therefore wanted plenty of room in the house. The Grape Pergola House gave us three generous double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom equipped with a shower. The house also had a wonderful kitchen stocked with ample kitchen appliances, cutlery and crockery, and of course wine glasses!! One of the aims of taking a country house was so that the avid cooks among our group could do what they do best. We shopped at the local village markets for the majority of our food and on most days were home for lunch and dinner.

Giovanna Oliveri is a wonderful host who did everything that we could have wanted to make our stay enjoyable. Being wine lovers we targeted that area of Italy with the intention of leaning more about Italian wine. We visited many of the historic towns in the general area plus going by train to Turin on one of the days.

One of the most delightful aspects of staying at Cascina Bricchetto is to wake up every morning to the most wonderful view over surrounding hills covered in forests and vineyards.

It was a truly great holiday and we would recommend the property to anyone wanting a country holiday.

A breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in the Bread Oven House. It is located on top of rolling hills, surrounded by grape vines with a view of the Alps in the distance. Giovanna had arranged for several tours of wineries and each one was fascinating. We also were lucky enough to be on the property during grape harvesting and learning more about the local wine industry was fascinating.

The house is spotless, fully equipped and beautifully decorated. While it is an old farm, it has modern amenities and is comfortable and welcoming. Giovanna had wonderful suggestions on local sites and restaurants and it's evident that she clearly loves the area-- as we do now.

Our two sons (both in the their late 20's and sophisticated New Yorkers) were in awe of the location and the small towns and villages we visited. A memorable week-- we will return soon.

Clean, luxurious holiday home with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Giovanna, the hostess and owner of this luxurious and charming holiday house, has so much to offer. Prior to our arrival, Giovanna had sent us several, interesting suggestions of activities in which we could partake to make our stay in this beautiful region a memorable one. She even did some additional research to find a traditional, cultural festival (folk dance and musicians) so that we could experience the culture of the people of the Piedmont region.

Upon our arrival, we were met by Giovanna who welcomed us with open arms. She walked us through the house explaining how the appliances and fireplace worked, shown us where everything was and made us feel very comfortable.

Cascina Bricchetto-Cà Der Forn is located on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards. It is immaculate and tastefully decorated with antiques.

The kitchen and washrooms are well equipped with everything from dishes, pots and pans, spices, pasta noodles, towels and linen, toiletries, detergents, etc. Two bottles of local wine, homemade jams, hazelnuts from Giovanna's orchards were on the counter upon our arrival.

The view from our place was exceptional, even on cloudy days. On a clear day, you can actually see the Alps at a distance – absolutely stunning, panoramic view.

Giovanna is very knowledgeable about Italy, and specifically of the Langhe region and all that it has to offer. She has many connections in the various businesses and it is easy for her to make suggestions that will best suit your needs. In her professional and generous self, she taught us how to make a Tirami Sù and shared with us her garden herbs.

I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wishes to live a great experience, away from the crowds.

Brilliant slow holiday in

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic facility in a quiet and beautiful area that is not yet swamped with tourists. The Cascina is well positioned to discover the surprising Langhe and Roero area in the Northern part of Italy. Good wine and restaurants, nice little towns, beautiful landscapes and excellent opportunities to do long walks. We stayed in Ca der Forne for 12 days. The house is luxuriously equipped and immaculately clean. Giovanna, the owner and host is lovely and helped us to discover the area with advice where to go and even making reservations. She's doing her best to make you feel at home without pushing. She learned us how to cook a traditional Italian meal and even let us use her car when ours was in the garage for repair. Outstanding place which we can really recommend.

Wonderful host / beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Cascina Bricchetto Langhe (Bread Oven House) was immaculate with beautiful woodwork, antiques, Murano glass, attention to details, elegant and very comfortable. It was on a hill and surrounded by vineyards. Our GPS had trouble getting us there the first time. There were a lot of winding, narrow roads. At Cascina Bricchetto were two covered outdoor areas each with table and chairs that were perfect for eating dinner and looking out at the awesome views. Giovanna and I emailed each other months before our visit. She made dinner reservations, "Trattoria Cascina Schiavenza" at Serralunga d' Alba (a 25 minute drive but the excellent food made it worth the drive) and set up two wine tours with English speaking guides, "La Barbatella" in Nizza Monferrato and "Tenuta San Biagio" in La Morra. They were both wonderful. Also months before our arrival, I asked Giovanna how I could find an interpreter in a small village north of Torino where my great-grandparents used to live. I had been told that I still had some cousins there. Well, Giovanna found a person who was an historian, interpreter, contacted my cousins and was willing to meet us there for the day so he could interpet and tell us about the history of Levone. I will ever be grateful to Giovanna for the awesome day I had visiting Levone and meeting my cousins. We also had arranged for Giovanna to provide breakfast our first morning there. It was very good and enough for 2 days. She lives in the home next door so it was very convenient if we needed help with anything. I would recommend this place in Piedmont. It was so relaxing to be able to walk among the vineyards and have dinner with such beautiful views.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time and for what she wrote. Whenever I can help people to rediscover their "ancient roots" I am happy and no matter how much time I have devoted to the operation. Unfortunately, GPS often shows paths more tortuous and long the instructions I write specifically to the guests prior to their arrival. Our hilly roads need attention is true, however, they offer a wonderful view ... and fabulous wines like Barolo and Barbaresco born in the vineyards of these same hills.

Only a few kilometers away you can discover the historical towns of Asti (renowned for the September Palio), Alba ( a medieval town full of towers and arcades, famous for the truffle fairs in October), Bra ( home to the Slow Food movement) and Cherasco; not forgetting the various wine castles of Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, Magliano Alfieri, Govone etc.

The beautiful city of Turin, which is full of museums, ancient buildings and historic cafes, is located about 70 km away and can be reached by train from the railway station of Asti.

The sea and the coast of Liguria are about 100 km.

The area is excellent for activities such as hiking, horse riding, tennis, golf, swimming, visits to museums and concerts. In the summer the area is alive with local festivals based on food and wine. The area is renowned for its food – specialties include truffles, chocolate, hazelnuts. Visits to local wineries or to small producers of cheese, salami or sweet delicacies can be arranged on request.

Cellars: The nearest 3 km and the farthest to 25.

I always tell our guests: 'if you want to understand a little of this territory and its people have to visit some cellar', talking with producers and tasting their products (we are talking about Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato d'Asti , Arneis, Freisa ...) you do something special to take with you ...

Obviously need to make an appointment.
