Agriturismo Ca’ Pasquin
Ca ' Pasquin is a small-scale Agriturismo in the hills of the Langa Astigiana in Piemonte, northwestern Italy. From Ca' Pasquin you look out on rolling hills and the idyllic village of Roccaverano. On a clear day you can see the Alps from the Monviso ( IT) to the Matterhorn (CH). At the end of 2023 we opened with three apartments.
At Ca' Pasquin we grow different vegetables, fruits and herbs. There are also a number of animals: cats, three big kind dogs (Maremmano Abruzzese), rabbits and chickens. We have planted many fruit trees and perennials in addition to the many cherry, elderflower, apple and plum trees that were already here. We try to restore the site with the help of old photos and local information.
In 2022 we - Femke and Bart plus our two children - settled here. We used that year to refurbish the first parts. Our house and the three existing apartments have been completely renovated. We have converted the old stable into apartment “ Il Rifugio ”. Ca' Pasquin has acquired its own style and identity.
We have plenty of woods where you can wander and explore, open fields where the many views will amaze you and you are completely absorbed in the tranquility of the area. We are committed to increasing biodiversity and allowing nature to take its course as much as possible. There are deer, wild boar and badgers around, but you can also find the fire salamander, slow worm and praying mantis (search carefully). In the spring it is full of protected wild orchids and other wild flowers. The bee and butterfly population is also growing steadily. The sunset is beautiful and on a clear night you can even see the Milky Way.
Plans for the future, yes there are! A large swimming pool, the permit has been submitted. And we will use the coming years to renovate the remaining buildings and we want to restore the terrain and forest to its former glory.
