The Regional Law 8.7.1999 n.18 “Regional interventions in support of the turist resources” furthered the development, the improvement and the qualification of the regional tourist resources, through the creation of new kinds of hospitality, including the accommodation in private houses used as bed & breakfast.
The Association CASE PIEMONTESI BED & BREAKFAST ASTI was founded in November 2000 by 11 women, at the end of a training course within a multiregional project aimed at the creation of business in a tourist sector different from the hotel one.
The Association Case Piemontesi, whose original function was to unify the first structures in the area and coordinate activities and promotional campaigns, counts now, among its members, about thirty structures, which have adopted a common strategy and established an effective cooperation.
B&B is an environment friendly kind of tourism; our structures have a minimum impact on the environment, they respect the surrounding land and most of them are placed in hilly areas.
Thanks to B&B the lanes, the woods, the narrow roads of the ancient villages bring to life again and it is possible to rediscover and appreciate the customs, the traditions and the cultural heritage of the countryside.
The B&B philosophy is based on a mix of environmental, sports, cultural and gastronomic elements, with a particular attention to the quality and the safeguard of the environment: after a period of three years, during which our activity has been particularly focussed on promoting the B&B hospitality, we have realized that our guests were very interested also in the natural richness and landscape of our areas.
Our guests, families in particular, are looking for something different from a place for their holidays: nature, taste and culture.
