About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, terrace - swimming pool

Overcome by the peace, tranquillity and beauty of this place we decided to give-up the chaotic city life, choosing a more natural and quiet rhythm of life. We painstakingly restored the house that was once the village barber's shop, an early 20th century example of a typical Piemontese farmhouse. Immersed in the beautiful surrounding countryside, we thought it would have been a fantastic idea to open our doors and share our experiences with people wishing to discover the many treasures of Piedmont or for those just looking for relaxation and great food and wine in a peaceful environment.

About Carla Mandelli

We moved to Cantarana from Turin in 1995 and are living in that which was named the 'Barber house', an early twentieth-century Piedmontese farmhouse we restored.

Carla Mandelli purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Carla Mandelli chose Cantarana

We bought this property to live in the countryside and this house is perfect, not too far from the village, not too far from the neighbours but quiet and indipendent property.

What makes this apartment unique

Our house is the right place to relax and enjoy nature as all around on the hills you can have beautiful sights and nice excursions on foot or by bicycle or, why not, on horseback.

Incantevole, è il termine giusto per la gentilezza e disponibilità della signora Carla, la bellezza della localitá e infine la comodità di un B&B completo di tutti i servizi!

Io e la mia compagnia siamo soddisfatti di aver trascorso ( purtroppo) solo due notti presso Cascina Caldera, ma comunque è stato davvero un soggiorno di relax e molto pjacevole. Ringrazio la proprietaria per la sua ospitalità e consiglio questa località per trascorrere piacevoli giornate immersi nel paesaggio di Asti. Ci tornerò di sicuro, magari d'estate per usufruire anche della piscina!
