After a day by the sea...

...watching the sunset behind the Monviso with a glass of Barolo under the walnut trees, enjoy­ing a glass of home­made elder­berry spritzer after a strenuous bike ride, playing a bad­minton match on the play­ground after a lazy day with a book in the deck­chair - we would like to and can offer our guests all this and much more.

Gabi Schneider and Jens Fessmann are the owners of Cascina Cerea

We are a southern German couple who fell in love with the area of Rocca Cigliè, a little village in the heart of the Langhe in the Piedmont, Italy. 5 years ago we finally realized our dream of living in this wonderful area as we have rehabilitated a 300-year-old farmhouse, now offering 4 holiday apartments.

It is our vision to offer you a unique experience in this beautiful piece of the Piemont.

The area offers many recreational opportunities including hiking and biking as well as sightseeing. At the same time it is suitable for quiet relaxation. Our property, called Cascina Cerea, is connected by trails offering peaceful nature views. Culinary highlights include slow food, wine- and cheese tastings and quaint country markets. For wine enthusiasts the famous Barolo region is located nearby. Cultural highlights include magnificent castellos, medieval churches, chapels and several medieval towns.

Fruit trees and hazelnuts grow on our almost six hectares of land, and in our farm shop you can buy and enjoy the products from our own certified organic cultivation.

We look forward to seeing you.

Jens and Gabi

Agriculture and farm shop

We are an agricultural business and Jens has completed special courses in Italy so that we can use the title Azienda Agricola. We have planted a good 200 fruit trees of all kinds and around 150 hazelnut bushes, as well as lots of berry bushes, but the yield is still within manageable limits.
