Our farm is located on an historically significant footpath called Tamburino Sardo. Custoza’s village center hosts the start of another Cammina Custoza path: together these two paths cover the most beautiful areas of the village, through small woods, vinyards, hills and valleys, crossing runnels and superb views… a beautiful area for walking, cycling or pony trecking.
Another local place of interest is the Ossario (charnel-house), built to honour the fallen soldiers of the independence wars, or visit Tamburino Sardo’s house, a heroic soldier cited in the famous book by Edmondo de Amicis – Cuore.
