Villa Piazzo is surrounded by an English 25 acre garden, carefully tended by and characterized by a sophisticated drawing which can still be seen today.
The 360 view on the Biella hills ranges from the Po valley to the whole Alpine area from Monviso to Adamello.

In 2017 we unveiled a fitness project revolving around walkingto avoid stress and cardiovascular disease, as recommended by the World Health Organization.
Lastly, other than the vegetable patch, orchard and beehives, the park hosts a playground, football and tennis grounds, a bowling greenand the stables.
The park is home to a section of the Biella horse riding path, the biggest in the area, going from the rice fields to the Alps stopping by Pettinengo: Villa Piazzohosts the stables necessary to treat and rest the horses.
The path begins 230 meters above sea level reaching 1500 in Bielmonte, measuring 200 km in total. The variety of landscapes, from the plain to the Alps, makes the area perfect for riding trips through natural reserves, sanctuaries and small villages.
