The Farmhouse

How the Commendatore G.B. Burlotto and the polar bear toasted together

Our farmhouse takes its name from the humorous cartoon that appeared in the satirical newspaper “The Moon” portraying the Commander G.B.Burtotto ideally toasting a drink with a polar bear, after his nomination as Sole Provider of wine during the expedition of the Duke of Abruzzi to the North Pole (1899-1900).

The structure is a typical Langa farmhouse; the rooms, furnished with every care and with traditional Piedmont antique furniture, look out onto a garden with a spacious pergola where you can read and relax in complete tranquillity; for those who like to relax, on one side of the garden there is a modern swimming pool with a fully equipped sun lounging area.

Piedmont is a region full of typical farmhouse food products and is known for its quality brands; our breakfast concept therefore provides a full sweet and savoury buffet with homemade cakes and biscuits, a selection of salami and cheese representative of the territory, and fresh seasonal fruit.
