Benvenuti a La Cascina dei Banditi

Our Cascina dei Banditi is located just two kilometres from the centre of the small town of Costigliole ( part of the UNESCO´s World Heritage ) in the Piedmonte region of Italy.

It is the perfect base from which to explore the area. Asti, Canelli, Alba and the hills of the Langhe are only a few kilometres away, and Turin, Milan and Genoa are also within easy reach by car or train.

Our Cascina has cosy guest apartments; each apartment has a living room with private terrace or conservatory, double bedroom and modern fully equipped bathroom that includes a shower and bidet.

Each apartment also has air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi, coffeemachine, kettle, hairdryer, minibar and a safe.

Dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved and don’t use the beds and sofas.

The property is gated with secure parking and guests have the option of parking bicycles, motorcycles or classic cars securely within our garages.

Summer or winter our dining areas inside and out allow you to enjoy breakfast under the portico, or by the open fire in the dining room and lounge. These are also the areas where we hold our language lessons – formal and informal.

Claudia is a qualified language teacher, as well as being an experienced and expert chef who specialises in the wonders of Piedmontese cuisine.

To accompany your relaxing stay, language and cookery courses, we can arrange guided tours, visits to places of interest, and wine tasting experiences at some of the wineries and grappa distilleries in this area of Italy renowned for its wines and cuisine.

Whatever your particular interests we can arrange trips and visits to suit you if you notify us in advance.

Talk to us any time, between us we speak Italian, German and English, we always do our very best to meet your requirements, whether it is learning some more about Italian cookery, learning or improving your Italian, touring this lovely part of Italy, or perhaps all three.

We hope to welcome you here at La Cascina dei Banditi soon, or at some time in the future.
