Cascina Caldera

Cantarana is the name of the village where we live. It spreads for many kilometres around the little village centre, and is divided into small groups of houses and farms scattered on the surrounding hills among woods and meadows and bound by paths sometimes possible only on foot. The etymology of the name Cantarana indicates a 'place with plenty of water', in fact near the B&B there is the Bonoma spring which supplies Asti with water. We (4 people, 1 dog and several cats) moved to Cantarana from Turin in 1995 and are living in that which was named the 'Barber house', an early twentieth-century Piedmontese farmhouse we restored.

Our B&B is the right place to relax and enjoy nature as all around on the hills you can have beautiful sights and nice excursions on foot or by bicycle or, why not, on horseback. It is also the ideal starting-point for a cultural and wine/gastronomic visit of Southern Piedmont. In fact Cantarana is very close to the most famous wine producing areas of Piedmont: Monferrato, Astigiano, Langhe and Roero, and we will indicate you the best wine shops and wine producers of the zone.

The home-made bread and cakes and the products of the orchard (possibly biological) or taken from the neighbouring farms will offer you a natural and abundant breakfast that will be served in the wide terrace during the warm season or otherwise in the comfortable breakfast-room

Our B&B consists of three double rooms at the first floor of an early twentieth-century Piedmontese farmhouse nicely restored, dipped in the green of its 20000 mq surrounding meadow. The B&B rooms have common entrance with the family house, two bathrooms, a wide terrace and a breakfast -living room available.
The B&B is no smoking.

Piedmont is known all over the world for wines quality, for truffles, for nuts and for his cheese.
It's possible to localize production in great geographical areas, often overlapped: Langhe (production zone of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo), Roero (with Roero and Arneis), Astigiano with center in Canelli and Nizza Monferrato (Barbera d'Asti, Moscato d'Asti, Grignolino, Moscato, Ruchè and Freisa), Low Monferrato with center in Casale Monferrato (production of Barbera, Bonarda, Grignolino, Freisa and Gabiano, Malvasia), High Monferrato Alessandrino and Tortonese areas (production of Brachetto, Gavi and Cortese), the area near Alpi between Vercelli and Novara's Hills (production of Bonarda, Gattinara, Sizzano, Fara, Ghemme, Boca, Lessona), Canavese area (where born Erbaluce and Caluso) and Carema territory, at the entrance of Valle d'Aosta (production of Carema).
Wine and gastronomy among wine shops and restaurants are one of the most important attraction of our territories.
