    Castello dei Seyssel d'Aix

    Open Details
    Let's take a walk through this little Borgo, where we find another castle (in case you haven't had enough) Chateau Dei Seyssel D'aix.
    But how many of these castles are there? So many, because this is a land of vineyards, the "Seigneurs" in times past used to bring their residence here to these lands.
    Another peculiarity of Sommaria del bosco is its no less than eleven churches.

    Moving away from the Langhe, the landscape begins to change. But not completely.
    And because you've enjoyed nature these days, we dive into marshes and ducks.
    We go to the Stork Center in Racconigi. At this center you can learn all about storks and anatids in general: where they come from, how they move, how they feed, their importance to the eco-system.
    The guides are great, keeping you glued to listening.
    Check out the website for a chance to join a guided tour.

    When one thinks of buffalo mozzarella, one's mind runs more to southern Italy although even in Piedmont there is a small herd with 280 buffalo that produce as many as 13 types of cheeses both fresh and aged and yogurt. You cannot escape an excellent mozzarella.
    The dairy is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Here the official website.
