Estling in the heart of the countryside barely five kilometres to the east of Biella, lies the Castle of Montecavallo, a little jewel of neo-gothic architecture.

In the last few years it has been transformed into a haven of hospitality and old world charm with an excellent restaurant. The estate, which has been the site of wine production since time immemorial, is now open to those who want to enjoy a holiday with many facets, whether it be a simple walk in the delightful woodlands that surround the castle, or a more challenging mountain trek in the nearby Alps. Within easy distance are the important mountain pilgrimage sites like Oropa, which is the largest sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna in the whole Alpine Region. There are also many and varied sporting activities available in the area like mountain biking, horseback riding, rafting, skiing, canoeing, golf and many more. Then there is the opportunity for some serious shopping in the luxury fashion shops and outlets attached to the factories, like Ermenegildo Zegna, Piacenza and Loro Piana.

For culture and history the magnificent historic centres, museums and art galleries of Turin, Milan, Vercelli and Valle d'Aosta are all within easy reach. Located in a central position between Turin and Milan, Castello di Montecavallo looks forward to welcoming you with a multitude of unique experiences from the worlds of culture, nature, fine wine and gourmet food.

We say that the people from Biella always return to their home because they love their land – austere mountains and challenging yet beautiful countryside. Me too, I went away and then I came back. The tough landscape breeds a tough people.

I grew up here in the Biellese, this difficult yet fascinating place, among the chestnut trees and vineyards; I spent Sundays in Oropa, walking in summer and skiing in winter. Even our mountains are not the easiest but, as my son says, other places bore us. Yet the spirit of that landscape gets inside you, with its crimson beech trees in autumn, the brilliant azaleas and rhododendrons in spring, and then the mesmerising rice fields that stretch out to the south looking like the sea.

I left the castle and went off to be a photographer and then later to manage a bar in Greece. As I travelled round the world I began to understand where I fitted into the great scheme of things and I came home and now I am happy to be here, to tend the vines that have been in my family for centuries, and to try to bring life to this old castle that needs so much care and affection.

My mother was a very hospitable person and I have always been used to having people around the house, people of every nationality. I believe that it is because of this background that I have now opened the doors of our home and am welcoming in those who know how to enjoy and appreciate its quiet beauty and charm. The winery is run directly by myself and Andrea Manfrinati, who is like a brother to me as we share our constructive discussions and inevitable seasonal bickering that accompany the harvest. We both have a passion for the land, the vineyard and the wine. We can spend hours discussing the possible changes and improvements to the winery and to the wines, needless to say with a glass in hand..

Twelve years ago I met Ferdinanda Salino with whom I share a passion for travel, mountains, cycling and a pack of cats and dogs. We have walked in the mountains together, raced each other on the steepest ski slopes, travelled across Germany and France on bikes - but we were never too grand to ignore the good restaurants and good wine we found on our way. Apart from books and cats, Ferdi is passionate about cooking and loves to follow old famly recipes. Over the years she has assimilated the creativity inherited from her grandmother.

Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
