Highlights and tour details

A panoramic itinerary with stunning views of the Alps and continuous climbs between the vineyards of Barbera and Grignolino. Between small villages encircled on the hills looking like a nativity scene where baroque churches and the countryside meet.

Points of interest

Having parked in Cereseto  in Piazza Umberto 1, filled up the water bottle at the fountain and gone uphill to the town center following the sign to  "Castello", is one of the most beautiful almost fairy-tale-like  castles of  Monferrato .

With curiosities satisfied and hundreds of photos  taken we continue with the tour.  At the  Castle’s  stop sign turn right leaving village and at the next stop sign go over the crossroads following the road signs for "Ottiglio".

If you do not want to see the castle straightaway, follow the street signs for "Moncalvo - Asti" from the square and just a short while ahead take a left to "Ottiglio". After about 700m to  the left is turn a dirt road (Wp dirt road 81) for about 1 km then an asphalt downhill, at the stop turn right and after about 50m take the dirt road (Wp dirt road 81)for about 700m which then becomes grassy and goes onto asphalt, continue until the sign "Cascina Buffalora superiore" (Wp unpaved road  7), take this unpaved uphill road that leads to an uninhabited home, go through the courtyard and go to the left , then downhill until back on the asphalt, the  road leads to cascina Merli, turn left and continue until you reach the SS 487 and turn right just before the end of the guardrail near a farm,  take the first dirt to the right, after passing the house (Wp 0071), at the second curve right, leave this main road  and take a grassy road (if you keep to the left you will however arrive in "Treville") and after 1 km arriving on the ridge of the hill and enter onto an unpaved road and then onto an asphalt road, uphill surrounded by a panoramic  landscape and the church of Treville that rises above the town,  past  the chapel of San Quirico and “località Solito”. After the graveyard stay to the right and  enter Treville and head straight towards  the church (there is a telescope on the square), you can see Cereseto , the departure point and the next stage, Monferrato Hall and all the whole Alpino arch.

After the magnificent views  and the photographic session, leave the Church and if in need of water, turn left at the stop sign beneath the Church and there is a fountain in the square.

Retracing tracks for a short distance back to the main road, go downhill to the stop sign and take a right to "Sala Monferrato", after 200m at the junction stay to the left and go uphill following the road signs for "Rosignano e Cellamonte" (NOT "Sala M." which is all asphalt). Later follow the signs to the right "via Savoia" and "B & B Savoy" which is downhill,  after the B & B  go onto a  grassy dirt downhill road (beware of  cart tracks), leading to a well-graveled dirt road, turn right , after about 300m turn right again onto a  dirt road  (Wp dirt road 12), which leads to an asphalted road continuing up to Sala Monferrato (for sightseers : turn right towards Cereseto, at the church go up the ramp with the arch to the old church of St. Francesco which dates back to the fourteenth century, with beautiful panoramic views) .To return, at the stop sign head towards "Ottiglio", go past the cemetery and  leaving the asphalted road take the unpaved road that is straight ahead for about 900m until you find a dirt road on the left which goes downhill, descending on the other side of the hill passing between some residences, the ascent continues on asphalt to SP 36, turn right (heading towards the end of the route), after about km. 1,150 note a steep dirt road on the right which deserves one last  small effort to get to the crest of the hill where the Castle and its countryside appear in all its glory. Take the downhill grassy road which leads you back to the starting point .
