About the Area:
Mombaldone itself is the only village in the Asti region that is still surrounded by its original walls. The entrance to the ancient village is through a Gothic-style entrance door to the shelter, which has been preserved in its original medieval form. The most important monuments converge on Piazza Umberto at the centre of the village and although the 13th century castle is now little more than a ruin ravaged by time, it is also well worth a visit.
in the village there is a post office, shop, rail station and local bar. The local shop is open every day and supplies all the essentials required for a self-catering holiday including freshly baked bread. The train is a useful and practical way to visit the beautiful, small villages along italian Riviera; tickets can be purchased from the post office. A 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk takes you to the village of Montechiaro D’Acqui, where there is a bank, ATM, chemist, butcher, baker, garage, bars, and a great pizza restaurant.
