Our Agriturismo Bianconiglio is a 17th century farmhouse, belonging to our family for generations. Warm and hospitable structure, created by an attentive and accurate restoration work, it has been realized by respecting completely the original building, with the goal of maintaining the antique charm unaltered, to bring the culture and traditions of yesteryear back to life.
The charming underground part of the building, is particularly evocative. The old barrel vault, the terracotta tiles and the walls of stone and antique bricks, after decades of being hidden, have been brought to light. Visit with us the old cellar, which is accessed through a fascinating tunnel.

 

ON THE LANGA-HILLS, IN THE HEARTH OF THE BAROLO-AREA
The Agriturismo Bianconiglio is located in Perno, Monforte d'Alba, characteristic little village in the Langa hills, dominated by its imposing castle, in the heart of area producing Barolo wine. From this exceptional, natural terrace, you can enjoy a magnificent 360 view: orderly vineyards, houses and farmhouses dotting the hills of the villages of Novello, Barolo, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Roddi, Grinzane Cavour, Diano d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba in the foreground. Further off, the Alta ("Upper") Langa, with its woods and small spread-out villages, the Roero territories, and finally the alpine arch, from the Maritime Alps to the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa massifs.
Have a look from our panoramic terrace, on the top of the Agriturismo: it is always at disposal of all our guests.

 

Brick sketched with a bunny, lucky finding during the restoration.

 
Focus: The name "Bianconiglio" ("White Bunny")

During the restoration work, some interesting particulars were brought to light. The lucky finding of antique bricks on which curious designs and dates (1656, probably the date of the foundation, and 1691, when the house was completed) were sketched, by hand, before being baked, allowed us to date the building and better understand its history. Among the various signs discovered, stylized portrayals of children, arrows and other symbols seem to take us back to a childlike world, a fairy-tale atmosphere. From this, and from the discovery of the most beautiful brick, that one with a cute little rabbit, comes the Agriturismo's name, Bianconiglio ("white bunny"), in honour of the famous fairy-tale "Alice in Wonderland", known throughout the world, from which we got inspiration even for the choice of the room names.
