Cioccaro di Penango, Province of Asti, Piedmont
The country house is built in Piedmont style, situated next to a picturesque 18th Century Roman church, which is rarely used - only for very special occasions. On arrival you will be astonished by the beautiful landscapes and complete silence. If you are interested in the finest Piedmont wines and cuisine, there is a lot to discover. Moncalvo (5 minutes drive) Asti (20'), Alba (45'), Bra and many other villages offer top restaurants serving local specialties. The house has two living rooms. The dining part of the living room wraps up two mini lounge areas and a large handmade Piedmont dining table. In the full lounge part there are a big, super comfy Italian sofa and a Barcelona chair, 3D-T.V., radio, CD/DVD-player. The kitchen has a dishwasher and a good espresso-machine, and another dining table. 3 (double) bedrooms on the 1st f... Read more

Villa Ciocarro sits in a beautiful setting on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards, the owners have truly made this a home from home. If you like peace and quiet then this is the place for you! We want to thank Loes and Frans for their kind gesture and support.

About the neighborhood
Moncalvo - 'the smallest city in Italy' - is 3 km away. The centre has a nice piazza, a weekly market on Thursday and monthly antique market on every first Sunday. There are really good restaurants with local specialties and pizzerias, as well as delis and supermarkets. On the city piazza you can have a lovely cappuccino for only 1.30 euro and a pizza for 5 euro.
It is said, that Piedmont can be compared with Tuscany 30 years ago. Just as beautiful, pristine, well preserved.
The famous Palio d'Asti 9 (spectacular horse race) is held every 3rd Sunday of September.
