Ca' del Gusto
Reviewed March 23, 2013

I visited Ca del Gusto as a guest of Henri and Kaisa.
They have opened a place of their own in Rivalta Bormida, Italy in the region of Piemonte.
Their house which hosts six guest rooms is beatiful and is situated in a marvellous location from where you on a clear day can see the Alps more than 150 km away.
The surroundings are fascinating, many astoundingly beautiful villages with wineyadrs along the hill sides and a castle on top of the hill. The history of the nearby town Acqui Terme dates back to the days of The Roman Empire. The centre of the town couples interesting architecture, good restaurants and cosy atmosphere with shopping at fashionable boutiques. Just outside there are the remains of a Roman acqueduct, 2000 years old!
In the surrounding villages there are vineyards and wine cooperatives selling local wines at very affordable prices.
You will find lots of alternative biking routes of varying level of difficulty.
The Riviera and The Mediterranean Sea are an hour's drive away and the big cities Genova (with a fascinating old town), Torino (beautiful architecture and views of the Alps) and Milano (with great shopping) are all within one to two hours by car. It takes you two to three hours to get to the ski resorts of the Alps, daytrips are possible.
The service offered by Kaisa and Henri is friendly and professional and the food is excellent.
I can warmly recommend Ca del Gusto.

I have visited Ca del Gusto one week before it was officially open. "Villa" is located on the beautiful countryside, from the villa you can see all around vineyards and behind them you can see Alps, if weather is good. Nearby there are beautiful small villages and 8 km from the"villa" there is an idyllic spa town Acqui Terme.
Landscape is beautiful even in winter. I can only imagine how beautiful this countryside will be in the spring time and in autumn when the leaves are changing and brightening in different colors.

"Villa" is restored with good taste. The young couple, Kaisa and Henri are very hard working, enthusiastic and athletic. Especially cycling is their passion. This couple will do their best to fulfill your wishes. The kitchen offers Italian country style food, simple but tasting. Menus are prepared by using local produce and also the wine selection is based on local wines.

I can recommend this place for relaxing, walking, cycling and every one who likes good food, vine and culture. And if you are interested in skiing, Alps are quite near.

You also wished welcome by two adorable huskies Aava and Ruska.

The lady who are very happy about this trip.
