Bed & Breakfasts
The welcome to our guests is with a feeling of cordiality and “seeing old friends”.
The time that you pass at LA GEMMA will be unforgettable moments of relaxation flavoured with pauses of artistic and culinary culture. Ours is an old country house nestled in the green of hills of Monferrato, with a view of the valley.
In 1841 Saint John Bosco visited his elementary teacher Don Giuseppe Lacqua in this very old house. This typical country “cascina” is found near in the heart of Monferrato near Moncalvo, the smallest city of Italy.
This ancient city is known everywhere for its wines and its cuisine. Within walking distance there is the Sacred Mount of Crea, today a Regional Natural Park.
This is an interesting excursion where one can observe unique flora and fauna.
The Sacred Mount comprises of the Sanctuary of Crea, of 23 small chapels, 5 hermitages scattered amongst the green of the mount and the Basilica of the Assumption.
Moreover you will be able to enjoy the events (sacred and patron festivities, musical reviews, cultural excursions and little markets, fairs and folklore) that bring to life the territory in the course of the year, among others the famous “Truffle Fair” and “Fat Ox Fair”.
