Less than an hour from industrial Turin is the remarkable Langhe, a region of immense natural beauty that boasts a vibrant wine and food lineage. Among Langhe's verdant rolling hills, just South of Asti, is the small town of Calosso.
A viticultural and enogastronomical center bordering Santo Stefano Belbo and Castiglione Tinella, Calosso is a prestigious area of Moscato d'Asti and Barbera d'Asti. It recently earned the honor of being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perched on top of Calosso's enchanting hills you will find Ca' Rapulin.
A completely restored 18th century Piemontese farm-house with stable and hay barn on one side and living quarters on the other, Ca' Rapulin blends naturally with its beautiful surroundings.
It is the ideal vacation destination for those interested in discovering the Langhe region, its history, natural beauty, as well as its viticultural and enogastronomical traditions.
The comfortable bedrooms, each with stunning views of the surrounding vineyards, the terraces, the swimming pool, the barbecue pit, the roomy kitchens and relaxing living rooms make Ca' Rapulin attractive for families and small groups seeking to enjoy the numerous local festivals and food fairs.
The swimming pool
The panoramic pool overlooking the estate vineyards is open May-October. It is a salt water, infinity pool exposed to the sun all day long and surrounded by the vegetable garden and the gazebo.
In Ca' Rapulin you can find one of the main symbols of the farming history of Langhe: the Crotin. An underground tunnel dugged in Tufo stone, where foods and wines were stored and preserved since the Middle Ages.
