  • Description


    Hello to all travelers, my name is Raffaele, I live in the country, I deal with raising goats and making cheese.
    My farm is surrounded by greenery in a place called Monale, a small town of about 1000 inhabitants. the village is a 15 minute walk and there are two bars, a pizzeria, a super market and some other shops including the bank, the post office and the pharmacy.
    My main occupation is to take care of the animals and pasture them in good weather, a lot of time is devoted to the production of cheese and its sale in the shops and restaurants of the nearby towns.
    The nearest city is Asti, 15 km away, Alba 40 km Turin 50 km, we are also one hour by train from Milan and Genoa.
    The Asti area is famous for wine , food and truffles.
    I am 50 years old and I have a 13 year old daughter who lives with me only a few days of the week, my parents and my sister with her husband and her daughter live in the farmhouse, everyone has a separate apartment.

    Help with household chores, preparing meals, I am open to any type of cuisine and I also consider this a cultural exchange.
    I want to improve my English and I would like to learn the French language.
    Life in the countryside brings solitude, so company and presence alone are much appreciated aids

  • Hébergement


    Reserved room with a non-exclusive bathroom is available for accommodation.
    Meals are prepared in the kitchen for me and for the traveler who wants to do it. All groceries are available and at my expense.
    We have no limitations on the type of food and cooking, this is also part of cultural exchange, I personally adapt to discovering new foods.

    Autres infos...

    In your free time you will be spoiled for choice, as I said we are 15 km from the city of Asti, there is a bus that makes three daily trips, in the nearby town there is a train station with trains to Asti or Turin about every hour. Personally I go to Turin once a week for deliveries and also to Asti.
    If you are a mountain bike lover you can travel for hours immersed in the green and in small characteristic towns with churches and castles.
    I remind you that we are considered a tourist area.
