would never be able to paint this wonderful natural amphitheater, which
hypnotizes eyes and soul
In the heart of the Monferrato hills in the area that houses the most famous vineyards in the world is the golf course "Feudo di Asti", located just few minutes from Asti downtown and placed in a wonderfull unique landscape.
A pleasant sense of solemnity cloaked these places and introduces the new eighteen-holes that embrace the Valdeperno estate with the eighteenth-century patrician villa, valued by one of the most choreographic garden of the Asti area.
Side elevation overlooking the splendid eighteenth-century villa and looking over his old village, lies the heart of the club: the club house.
Furnished with elegant simplicity, the club house comes with a new essential building and practice centering on a single plan.
A spacious and functional open space that houses a large hall with the secretariat and the proshop at the entrance, changing rooms and offices, bar, restaurant and a relaxation area with satellite TV projection of world sports results.
The new building offers a design choice that puts the spotlight on the dynamism and practicality of the activities to be held within the clubhouse.
Piedmont is in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France.
True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain), Piedmont is a land of mountains. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy.
Monviso, the Piedmont side of Monte Rosa and the other spectacular mountains in the region, create incredibly beautiful landscapes, and ski resorts abound: Via Lattea and Sestriere welcome winter sports enthusiasts with their state-of-the-art facilities.
The Alps form the background for sweeping, picturesque valleys, e.g. the Val di Susa, Valsesia and Val d'Ossola.
The landscapes of the Langhe and Monferrato are hilly, rather, but just as beautiful, a succession of cultivated hills and vineyards that are dotted with small towns and castles.
Expanses of water and rice paddies, long rows of poplars and old farmhouses make up the typical scenery of the plains around Novara and Vercelli.
Lake Maggiore is the most sought-after tourist resort, including Stresa and the Borromean Islands, charming as they are with their ancient villas surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens.
Yet, nature is only one of the many attractions in Piedmont.
This region has many other facets: from Turin – the Italian car manufacturing capital – with its history and remarkable cultural heritage, to other cities such as Cherasco, Alba and Ivrea.
Next up are the intriguing Medieval castles - like the imposing fortress at Ivrea - and prized works of architecture - the famous Residences of the Royal House of Savoy and the Sacri Monti (Sacred Mountains) certainly deserve to be mentioned.
The famous spa resorts of Acqui Terme and Vinadio offer treatments and therapy for a relaxing, reviving holiday.
Discoveries and surprises of all kinds are in store for visitors to the region, including a wide range of food and wine to suit every palate.
The region’s provinces are: Turin (regional capital), Alessandria, Asti, Biella, Cuneo, Novara, Verbano Cusio Ossola and Vercelli.
The Province of Asti lies at the heart of Piedmont and borders Liguria in the south.
This mostly hilly territory stretches across Monferrato and a small area of the Langhe and the Langa Astigiana, and is traversed by the Tanaro River.
Gentle hills alternate with valleys to create landscapes of unique beauty, and vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see, to provide a kaleidoscope of shades and tones.
The Asti area is a wine producer par excellence and the home of Asti Spumante DOCG (sparkling wine), renowned and exported all around the world. While the hills offer wonderful landscapes, the various reserves have their own beauty, such as the Rocchetta Tanaro Natural Park, the Special Natural Reserve of the Andona, Botto and Grande Valleys, and the unique WWF Oasis of Forteto della Luja, which includes a beautiful stretch of the Langa, lying on the banks of the Luja stream.
Within this stunning natural scenery lie towns of Medieval origins, such as Canelli, Nizza Monferrato and San Damiano d’Asti, or small but evocative Medieval borgoes in the hills, like Moncalvo, Roccaverano and Costigliole.
Along the ancient Via Francigena, it is still possible to see wonderful Medieval parish churches and abbeys, while the monuments of Asti's historic center testify to the golden age of the Asti when it was a free comune(11th to 14th Centuries).
Folkloric events, the local cuisine based on traditional recipes and the local produce never fail to delight visitors.
