Description from the owner
The Cascina Bricchetto farmhouse can be found at Trezzo Tinella (Cn) about 10 Km from Alba and 3 km about Barbaresco. It is a traditional Le langhe stone farmhouse, that is probably the oldest in the county, warm in winter and fresh in the summer. It is situated at the top of a hill surrounded by vines and hazelnut groves, at an altitude of about 600 meters, and includes two “Houses under the sky of the Langhe", renovated out of the central part of the old building.
The view is extraordinary; a sequence of hills overlooked by Monviso and the Monte Rosa massif.
Ca dra Topia ( House of the "pergola") which is completely independent, is equipped ...Read more

Additional Location Information
The municipal district of Trezzo Tinella covers an area of 10 Km², stretched out among hills and small valleys. It has about 350 inhabitants, mainly settled in farms and villages scattered amidst vineyards and hazelnut groves, whose cultivation is the basis of the local economy.
Devotion to the land is joined by the preservation of traditions and basic values of the original culture of the Langhe. In particular the tradition of:
the procession of Corpus Domini, that takes place between two rows of antique linen, embroidered by great-great-grandmothers, and ends with a 'merenda-sinoira' ( a traditional feast starting with a snack at 5 o'clock and ending with dessert latter in the evening) prepared by the village women;
the Christmas crib, made with small stone houses and a reconstruction of the historic centre also in stone;
the village fairs that take place outdoors in the summer, which always join spirituality and gastronomy;
the benevolent "masche", a true curiosity!
Should you like to enjoy not only the beauty and peace of the Cascina, but also the most striking artistic and historical expressions of the area, just a few kilometers away you can find the towns of Asti - Bra - Cherasco - Torino and also the renowned Castles of Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, Govone, Alfieri, Novello, Verduno, etc.
A walk or a drive of about 3 km will bring you to the farms described by Beppe Fenoglio in his books (Il partigiano Johnny, La malora) and, on the other side of the hill, to the birthplace of Cesare Pavese –Santo Stefano Belbo- where you will be able to visit his birth place and the "Centre of Studies".
The town of Alba with its medieval towers, old arcades, and museums, is about 10 Km away. Regarded as the "capital of the Langhe", the town hosts very famous events, such as:
“Vinum – a presentation and tasting of the wines of the area, and of the most typical local products” (Spring);
“Market-exhibition of the white truffle of the Langhe and the Roero”, accompanied by a sequence of events both cultural and enogastronomical, that comes to an end in the Castle of Grinzane Cavour with the charitable Auction of the giant truffle, to which the most famous restaurateurs take part (Autumn).
The most precious wines of Piemonte, known by all wine lovers, are produced in this area; the local products and the cuisine are in themselves well worth a visit.
