The perfect day trip to Neive

For us, a visit to the old village of Neive is the ideal way to spend a day trip - beautiful historical buildings, various restaurants and trattorias to enjoy a lovely lunch, and small artisan shops and galleries for a little gift shopping.

Let us recommend these different activities:

  • Historic Center: Begin the day by wandering through Neive's historic center, characterized by cobblestone streets, medieval architecture, and picturesque squares. Explore the narrow alleys and discover the well-preserved buildings that showcase the village's rich history.
  • Wine Tasting: Neive is renowned for its wine production, particularly Barbaresco wine. Encourage your guests to visit local wineries for a wine tasting experience. They can savor the unique flavors of the region and perhaps even bring back a bottle as a souvenir.
  • Gastronomic Delights: Neive boasts excellent restaurants and trattorias offering traditional Piedmontese cuisine. You should indulge in local specialties such as truffles, handmade pasta, and regional cheeses.
  • Cultural Sites: Visit historical landmarks like the Church of San Pietro and the Clock Tower. These sites provide insights into Neive's cultural and architectural heritage.
  • Artisan Shops: Neive is home to several artisan shops, where you will find  handmade crafts, local artwork, and traditional products. Exploring these shops adds a personal touch to the day.
  • Neive - Charm, wine, and a view ad lib!
    Neive, a medieval village that will definitely charm you with its cobblestone streets, historic architecture, and renowned vineyards.
    Getting there - by car or bike?

    Regarding the distance and travel time from the villa, we recommend these 2 options of transportation:

    • By car: The distance by car can vary based on the specific route, but it's approximately 16-18 km and may take around 30 minutes depending on traffic and road conditions.
    • By bike: Biking to Neive offers a scenic and leisurely alternative. The distance by bike is also around 15 - 18 kilometers depending on the route, and the travel time might be approximately 1 hour - 1,5 hour based on the speed and fitness level of the cyclists. If you are in a great shape, fit condition and enjoy climbing the hills, you can go on racing or gravel bike. Otherwise, we recommend renting e-bikes in the town of Canelli.
