bed & breakfast Ca’ d’ Rot (translation by the Piedmontese
dialect "Ratti Hous") is located in the center of Vinchio
d'Asti, among the verdant hills of Monferrato.
VINCHIO seems to spring from the vineyards that
surround it, creating a pictoresque landscape.Thanks to the active
life of its inhabitants, these vineyards produce great wines such
as the Barbera Superiore and the Moscato d'Asti.This area, which
somewhere is sandy, offers some treasures like the "asparago
saraceno" (Saracen asparagus, name derived by one of the most
ancient hillock of the village), the "cardo gobbo" ("bent"
thistle, bacause of its particular shape) in the valley, and in
autumn the white truffle (precious tuber with a powerful aroma amd,
reportedly, aphrodisiac): the king of the truffle.
VINCHIO, offers the possibility to hike in the
reserve near our B&B, the Valsarmassa, to all those people who
like to do non-conformist holidays (without the obsession of the
watch, of the traffic, of the smog, etc…) and to plunge in
the green of the nature.
The village is located in a good central position
(from 22 to 28 km. C.a.) from several places such as: ASTI (known,
in addition to its Palio - the most ancient in Italy since 1275
- for the DOUJA, the Festival delle Sagre, for the truffles
market, etc), ALBA, ACQUI TERME, CANELLI and other wonderful villages of
the Monferrato, Langhe and Roero.Vinchio's height is about 310 m
over the sea level.
