South Piemonte is more or less south of Alessandria - Asti - Alba, for example the area around Acqui Terme, Nizza Monferrato ...

For example I know of a lovely property near the small village of Denice, South of Acqui Terme.

Where exactly are you looking in Piedmont? 

Here in South-Piemonte and just over the border in Liguria there are several people who have horses.

Mixed messages are because it all depends on personal situation, laws change constantly and there are regional laws and national laws.... I'd advice you to go speak with an Italian accountant, explain your situation and hopefully he / she will be able to help you understand more clearly about all those costs. I know a few in the South-Piedmont area who speak English, if you mail to, she will send you their contact information.

Liguria : you can get there from Nice (France), Turin, Milan and Genova. As someone before allready mentioned, there is excellent public transport and of course there is the sea ! But prices at the coast are high.

Piemonte: no sea, but the same airports are easily reachable. Here you have to be look closer at public transportation, not all places are well connected, but small and charming cities as for example Acqui Terme are. And prices are more reasonable then in Liguria.

There are a lot of initiatives in Piemonte for horse riding, for example : they are cleaning up old mulattiere (muletracks) to be used by horse riders.

Where exactly are you planning to live? Piemonte is a large region, where exactly are you looking for properties?

As Italian Dream House allready mentioned, there are rules for stables (there are always rules here :-) ) and of course there are also rules for importing horses. (ask for certificates from your vet, don't forget to mention which countries you will travel through too).
About stables : if you have only two horses you ufficially don't need stables.

I've tried it too (by clicking on your profile and look for contact information) and it seems it is not possible to send a private message.

It is true that there are B&B's with and without partita IVA. The difference is : those with a partita IVA have more income because they rent the rooms out more regularly than those who do it more as a hobby. BUT : if you call it B&B (partita IVA or not) you ALWAYS have the room restriction (in Piemonte 3, in other regions sometimes max. 4-6).

Dear Sbthorne,

In Piemonte you can not run a B&B with more than 3 rooms for max. 6 persons in total, but there are a lot of other possibilities that give you the opportunity to run a similar business, it will only be called differently. For example, as an affitacamere you can have max. 6 rooms. Or, if you want to rent out holiday apartments / studios they are called "alloggi vacanze". Each has it's own rules, but the good thing is: almost everything is possible. See the list of accomodation types in Piemonte here : (unfortunately the information is only available in Italian).

If you're in need of professional help in finding a property and / or starting a touristic activity, don't hesitate to ask (mail :, website: )

Hi Stefan,

If you need some professional help in finding a property in Piemonte, we would be very happy to help you find it. We’re not a typical Italian real estate agency because we always work for the buyer alone and not both parties. The houses you see on our website ( are offered for sale by other agencies with which we regularly collaborate, but in case you want to buy one of these we work as following :
Instead of asking 3 – 4% commission to each party (seller and buyer), we only ask the buyer an hourly rate for the work we do as real estate consultant (starting from the first contact where you decide if you want to work with us or not) + a bonus when we realise a discount on the price (for example : if you buy a house for 360 000 euro instead of the 400 000 euro that were asked, you win 40 000 euros and we get 10% of this, which is 4 000 euro.).

For us, our method seems more logical as you will have the security we’re as motivated as you are to get the price as low as possible. And it is also more motivating to work for clients that are really serious because they pay us from the beginning, so for them our method is only interesting if they end up buying a house, otherwise they have thrown their money away for nothing.
