In the hills of piedmont

Inside a small village called the “Castello”, Cascina Mondella offers an authentic and welcoming experience.

Welcome to the Cascina Mondella Bed & Breakfast

Cascina Mondella is a charming Bed and Breakfast located in the eastern Biella region, in an area with a long tradition of winemaking. The B&B is located inside an ancient village called the “Castello”, with a paved courtyard and a welcoming building. The name “Mondella” derives from the noble Mondella family of Biella who were owners of a large agricultural complex in Lessona in the 1600s. The current building that now houses the B&B was built in 1776.

The Cascina Mondella B&B is the perfect location for relaxing in the countryside and is also convenient for exploring other tourist attractions in Piedmont. Views are breathtaking landscapes, including rows of vineyards, cypresses, and the majestic Biella Prealps in the background.

The property also includes a large terraced Italian garden with a barbecue area and woods where you can gather chestnuts, mushrooms, and blackberries depending on the season. Cascina Mondella offers a unique experience that combines nature and history in a fascinating setting.

    What They’re Saying About Us

    October 2020

    I ended up here by pure chance. The 17th century atmosphere permeates the B&B. The room was furnished and decorated with period antiques and was very clean. The owner was extremely nice, very attentive, and available. Even though I only stayed for one night, she made sure I had everything I needed. There is also a marvelous cellar where they hold wine tastings. I recommend it to anyone who wants to relax in nature.

    A wonderful place located in a quiet, green landscape and run by great hosts, Ornella and Giorgio.

    A beautiful location at the foot of the pre-Alps. Excellent hospitality, great breakfast, and fabulous views. I would recommend it for overnight stays but also for events in the wine cellar.
