“The warmest welcome in Piemonte”
Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for a long weekend and could not have been better. The rooms are excellent, beds comfortable and the bathroom has a good shower. Also very clean. The place is situated maybe 20mins max walk or 5mins by car from the centre of Nizza. The place is run by Evi and Kahle, the two nicest people you could meet, can't do enough for you. The breakfast is as much as you want to eat: Brioche, cheese, ham, eggs, bread, jam, tea and coffee. what ever you want Evi will find it for you, and if she doesn't have it she will for the next morning.
I cannot fault this place for the money and left feeling like I had made some new friends. For sure we will go back.

It was like staying with a family - Evi and Kahle (sp??) were extremely friendly, warm and welcoming! We didn't know any Italian, and Evi gave us recommendations for dinner (and even helped us pre-coordinate the menu at a little known place called Il Batacchio in Calamandrana Alta - which was amazing!) and nearby places to visit and see. Their dog, Lilo, was one of the most well-behaved dogs ever, never once did I hear him bark or misbehave!

When we came back at night, Kahle and Evi were always offering tea/coffee or wine/apertifs (I did a big wine/liquor tasting at this house!) and snacks. The breakfast was a huge spread of eggs and bacons, bread, fresh jams, fruits, juices and some of the strongest and best coffees.

We felt very comfortable in the common areas - we actually didn't spend very much time in our rooms at all. We stayed in one of the suites that had 2-levels, 2 single beds on top and a sofa bed on the bottom floor with ensuite bathroom. The bathroom and rooms were cleaned daily. There is no wireless internet, but they had a computer with internet access that we could use.

Evi also gave us 2 cooking lessons of mushroom risotto, ragu, seafood pasta, beef stew, tiramisu - the meals were great and I am already impressing friends with them! Our trip to Italy was a gastronomic tour, and we definitely had the chance to experience all that in Piedmont.

It was great sharing stories and learning some Italian. Evi/Kahle, thank you for the stay and we were lucky to get to know you and your family.

Cascina Blon is a true hiddem gem. The house, located 1.5 km Nizza Monferato, is surrounded by vineyards and the hosts (including their dog, Lilo) are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Our room (including an en-suite bathroom) was comfortable and spacious with a great view of the countryside.

Cascina Blon makes a great home-base for exploring the Asti/Alba countryside. We'll be back!

This a lovely and quiet agriturismo/B&B that is a bit off the beaten track, but is very rewarding on account of the great kindness and hospitality of Evi and Carlye, the hosts and owners, and the comfort offered.

The room we had was lovely, clean and comfortable and the breakfast was one of the best we had in the various accommodations on our trip.
A very nice aspect of the accommodation is the common area where it is possible to chat with others, have access to a computer, watch TV or read. There is also a pretty outdoor area for relaxing outside. During breakfast, at least at this time of year, all the guests are seated together on both sides of a long table in a beautifully renovated room (look for the builder's pistols on the ceiling), something we thought of as special and enjoyable.

We were sorry that we could come for only one day - Evi and Carlye are wonderful hosts, and we felt that we could spend hours talking with them. They are to be admired for the fact that at an age where others sometimes prefer to stick to themselves, they have opened their home to complete strangers, devoting time and energy to making sure their guests feel at home, and do so with gusto and pleasure that is rarely seen. They are both completely fluent in English, which made the stay even better for us.
We'd certainly return here.

Living at Cascina Blon was an amazing experience! Evi and Carlye were great hosts, and went the extra mile to help us around because we had no car for most of our stay! Coming from Singapore, this was a great place to be in, to explore the Piedmonte area and Evi was extremely nice to give us a room upgrade as we had come such a long way- Thanks Evi! The cascina itself was well contained, and had a surrounding vineyard, with hazelnut, fig trees and a young olive grove planted by Evi herself (I think it's 180 olive trees?). Evi was not just a host, but also an extremely patient teacher-chef, who taught us how to cook! She made the most difficult things look so simple to cook, and we'll definitely be trying out the zucchinni risotto dish and the quiche at the very least, at our christmas dinner this year! Carlye also took us on mini trips out of town and helped us with car rental, which was very useful, as few people spoke english in Nizza.
This was a very memorable bit of our trip and Caryle- your brachetto is WONDERFUL. I hope you sell it one day in Singapore!
Much love and thank you!!!!

We stayed for 3 nights at Cascina Blon. Already at our arrival we were so positively impressed by the nice hosts. We were welcomed by a nice Aperitivi in the garden with the family and friends. The hosts are unbelievably friendly, they will do everything to make you feel good, help you at anything and just give you this cosy feeling. The rooms are also very beautiful, especially the ones on two levels. Everything is very clean and very nicely renovated. Breakfast is great, too! Overall the best private stay we have ever been to!
