Johanna Noyon and Ton van Schaik, we are Dutch and since 2002 resident in Piana Crixia situated exactly on the border between Ligure and Piedmont. You have found the right adress if you want to enjoy a (here still existing) typical Italian environment surrounded by an unspoilt nature with peacefulness and lots of space. Furthermore cultural cities, famous wine-growing regions, ski possibilities and - not to forget - the attractive Italian Riviera are easily reachable. Cascina Pian del Nasso is situated in a quiet valley 5 km from Piana Crixia beside a regional park with streams and rolling hills up to 600 m high. The tranquillity guarantees a pleasant stay for nature lovers. In Piana Crixia (35 km inland from the Mediterranean) there are several restaurants, some general food stores, a butcher, a baker, post office and a pharmacy. The apartment Cascina(seperate part of the house) has its own entrance, is situated on the first floor and comprises a kitchen-living room (oven, microwave, coffeemachine, toaster), a bathroom (shower, toilet, bidet, 2 washbasins) and a double bedroom. There is central heating, wi-fi internet, sat-TV+DVD. In the living room a comfortable double sofa bed.

Local Area Details

Where in Italy

Piana Crixia is situated exactly on the border of Ligure and Piedmont 35 km north of Savona and 35 km south of Acqui Terme. Liguria is a coastal state adjoining France (Côte d’Azur) in northwest Italy.The Mediterranean here is called the 'Riviera of Flowers'.

The area and its people.
Beautiful hilly valleys interspersed with broad open fields. Local peaks can reach up to 900 meters.The area was and still is mainly agricultural. There is a lot of water in the area: the Bormida river gives its name to our valley and nearly every old farmhouse still has its own well. The vegetation consists of woods (broad-leaved woods, of which many chestnut trees but also pines), fields, meadows and fruit trees (apples, pears, cherries, plums, peaches, apricots, figs, hazel- and walnuts). This is Nutella-country!In Liguria you will find the “Calanchi”, a protected nature phenomen; these are grey and naked hills that look like slate. We love them and often geologists from all over the world can be spotted while studying them. Regularly one can see deer, foxes, badgers, hares, buzzards and, if lucky, a group of wild boars. Silence is overwhelming and clear stary nights are common.

Wine is essential to Piemonte (Barolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebiolo, Moscato) and vineyards are re-appearing in Liguria.

More then 20 years ago the government decided to close down for ever all the big industries, mostly chemical. That is why, together with the decreasing agriculture, young people often leave for the big citty if they don’t find any employment in the local small businesses like the glass industry, furniture, construction work, shopkeeping or applied arts. In fact, it is still very easy to find good craftsmanship. Tourism should be the answer but, as only the first steps in this direction are being taken today, you will find an authentic unspoilt area, populated by oldfashionedly warm-harted people that are happy with the arrival of every foreigner and are always willing to help. It is therefore very easy to make contact even if one has just started to learn Italian! Crime rate is very low and social control is very high!

What to do in our region.
Besides enjoying the peacefull nature and the unspoilt environment you can go for walking- or cycling-tours (searching for mushrooms!). You can also make horseriding tours. The regional food and wine culture is famous and we could write an entire chapter to explore the possibilities, yet we mention the many local festivals and feasts which are helt from May till September in every little village. The central theme is eating and drinking at long wooden tables, after which you can stretch your legs on the dancing floor! Music concerts and local festivals are often part of the country-life during summer. On top of all there is the lively scene at the Riviera at a distance of a half hours drive with the middle-aged fishing villages, the broad boulevards, the beaches and the Mediterranean itself. For people who love wintersports, there is a little ski-area at a distance of one upto one and a half hours drive (south from Mondovì). All types of culture are within reach nearly everywhere; in this region towns to visit are besides Genua (1 hour), Turin (1,5 hours), Nice en Monte Carlo in France (2 hours) and Milan (2,5 hours) the smaller towns like Savona, Acqui Terme, Alba and Asti.

The climate.

Long hot summers with relative cool nights and short winters with also snowfall are typical for our region. Many inhabitants of Savona and Genova are living in our area during summer “to sleep well during the night”, while at day-time they go to work from their homes here. During spring and autumn the differences in temperature between night- and day-time are greater than you experience in Great Britain: during day-time a T-shirt will be sufficient, while at night it can be rather fresh.

During winter it can be quite frosty, however this will last only a few days. The fog sometimes remains in the valleys, but mostly we enjoy cleary and dry days. If there are rainshowers they are often heavy, but they don’t last for long.

At a close distance to the Mediterranean you will find a micro subtropic climate. Palm- and olive-trees and also a lot of tropical fruits are common near the Ligurian sea.
