Estate Pian del Nasso on the border of Liguria and southern Piedmont
Pian del Nasso is an old estate ( 8 hectares) located near Piana Crixia, exactly on the border between Liguria and Piedmont. The estate is especially known for the watermill which for centuries was used for grinding wheat and corn in the region. The estate is now permanently inhabited and there is a small tourist activity for rental houses. The estate includes a restored mansion (main building) of which a part is separated as a rental (cascina), a restored water mill (mulino), a rustic summer cottage (rustico) and several outbuildings. There is a central pool near the mansion.
