Crescentino, a Municipality of the tourist area of the River Po River Park bordering with Monferrato hills, lies in the middle of Piedmont: therefore, if you take the highway, you can reach in one hour the snow of the Olympic Games 2006 or the snow of Val d'Aosta or, if you prefer, the sea of Liguria; you can reach Turin in half an hour; it takes 45 minutes to reach Alba and Langhe, while it takes 90 minutes to reach Maggiore and d'Orta Lakes (if you take the highway).
If you love practicing sport and being surrounded by nature, you will have the opportunity to go jogging in the large private park surrounding the house, go trekking and mountain biking in the Po River Park and on the hills, and even reach Casale (30 km, then you can return along the panoramic road of lower Monferrato wine-growing area), or by canoe, from the island Ritano di Saluggia (about 3km far), paddling over Dora Baltea until you reach its confluence with the river Po, and then go ahead (with several landing stages).
5 km away, on the hills, there is the historical Fortress of Verrua Savoia, while 10 km away you will find the archaeological site of Industria.
