Overview

Come and discover the real Abruzzo, its unspoiled nature, its ancient traditions and its typical simple and tasty cuisine.

You will stay in a farmhouse, you will prepare traditional local dishes with the products you have collected in the vegetable garden and, depending on the season, you will participate in the grape harvest, the harvest of olives, chestnuts or mushrooms. You will get to know the wonderful Costa dei Trabocchi, with its breathtaking views, small beaches with pristine sea, ancient villages and abbeys. You will dine on a Trabocco, an ancient fishing machine whose origins are lost in history, letting you be lulled by the sea, savoring tasty fish dishes accompanied by the best wines of the area. By tasting the oil directly from the family oil mill, you will experience a unique sensory experience.

You will visit parks and hermitages, castles and sheep tracks – the ancient paths of the shepherds – learning the ancient peasant and pastoral arts. In a few kilometers you will pass from the blue of the sea to the green of the vineyards to the white of the ski slopes, in a perfect mix of relaxation, experiences, traditions and culture.
