Description

The farm can be found about 2km. from the centre of Abbateggio, a characteristic village in the Majella National Park in Abruzzo. It is in a splendid panoramic position with a view that sweeps over the peaks of Majella and Morrone to those of Gran Sasso to then take in the Adriatic sea.
In the middle of the 10 hectare property of fields and oak woods, 500m. above sea level, at the foot of the Majella mountain, there are two characteristic stone farmhouses – one dating back to the late 1800's and the other to the early 1900's – where our guests are welcomed.
Large outdoor spaces are available for rest, relaxation or stretching legs. A few particularly suggestive areas of the property will be pointed out for reading or meditation. In other parts, it is possible to take advantage of the lack of illumination and, at night, lying in a field, admire the starry sky listening to the sounds of nature.

Large outdoor spaces are available for rest, relaxation or stretching legs. A few particularly suggestive areas of the property will be pointed out for reading or meditation. In other parts, it is possible to take advantage of the lack of illumination and, at night, lying in a field, admire the starry sky listening to the sounds of nature.
Guests will be guided in the discovery of the marvels of the woods and helped to recognize the numerous trees. They will be able to enjoy the beauty of flowering cyclamens and the remarkable presence of many species of wild orchids (Orchis maculate I., Orchis purpurea Hudson) and numerous other delightful wild flowers ( on Majella there are 2100 varieties of flora, a third of those present over the whole country).
With a bit of luck there is the chance of meeting up with wild animals such as wild boars, various species of deer, pheasants, owls, foxes, squirrels and, in the mountain area, numerous species of birds such as the golden eagle, goshawk, peregrine, lanner, eagle-owl and the dotterel.
The farm is also open to visitors who wish to learn the traditional methods of cultivation. Small quantities of spelt, olive oil, wine, fruit and vegetables are produced from antique, native species using only traditional methods.

Rooms

The renovation of the farmhouses has been carried out with the utmost respect for the structures, traditional colours and materials using only stone, wood, brick, wrought iron and natural brass.
The colour-wash painting of the rooms has been done with natural earth pigments, the flooring is in linseed-treated, handmade terracotta, the floors are of wooden beams, joists and terracotta flat tiles.
Rooms and apartments have been furnished with traditional wooden or wrought iron furniture, procured from antique or second-hand dealers in the area, giving both a rustic as well as a refined atmosphere.
All apartments, kitchens and rooms have a fireplace even though an invisible underfloor heating system mitigates the temperatures of the winter months.
Each apartment also boasts a small library in addition to the main one for the guests.


Resources

The water used on the premises, due to its natural physical chemist properties, is classifiable as one of the best, low in mineral content waters on the market. The moderate content of salts (residual even to 130mg/l), the low value of sodium ion (2.5mg/l), the modest quantity of nitrates, the absence of nitrites, ammonia and colibacteria makes this water light and digestible, extremely pure, moderately diuretic and suitable for all diets low in sodium.
The vegetable garden at the disposal of the guests will be particularly enjoyed by those who love and treasure the real flavours of the fresh biological garden produce.
The orchard is there for guests to take to their tables fresh fruit ( apples, pears, figs, grapes, plums, nuts……).
The surrounding woods, rich with mushrooms in spring and autumn, will be greatly appreciated by those expert seekers…..

Round and About

Abbateggio is situated on the northern slopes of Majella along the road that goes from the motorway tollgate at Scafa (A25) to the well-known spa, Caramanico Terme. It is 40km from Pescara and about 200km from Rome. The centre of Abbateggio, the town hall, is 450m above sea level in a beautiful panoramic position with a view that sweeps from the Gran Sasso massif as far as the sea.
The municipal territory extends for about 16sq.km moving throughfrom 210m to 1,200m above sea level therefore, the landscape is greatly variable, changing from hills to the foot of mountains.
Close to Abbateggio is the Giumentina valley, a place of important palaeontological finds that bear witness to the presence of man since the Palaeolithic period, with its characteristic dry stone tholos constructions. Caramanico Terme is an attractive town famous for its curative thermal waters, recommended especially for those with respiratory problems. It has a splendid Romanesque church in the hamlet of San Tommaso. The castle of the Barons of Genoa is a short distance from Salle, recently renovated after a terrible earthquake. The Orta Valley is spectacular with its deeply embedded geological conformations and its pure white rocks through which the rushing river tumbles along. There is San Valentino in Abruzzo Citeriore with its castle already belonged to the Farnese family and the church of the saints Valentino and Damiano, accomplished from the plans of Vanvitelli; the river park created along the Lavino with its small turquoise lakes, due to the sulphureous water, and a seventeenth-century mill. The pleasant village of Roccamorice boasts a famous abbey, Santo Spirito a Majella, set up by Pope Celestino V, the hermitage of San Bartolomeo and the interesting collection of tholos shelters at Colle della Civita.
For mountain lovers, Abbateggio is also an ideal starting point for excursions to the main peaks of Majella (Monte Amaro, 2793m.a.s.l., monte Acquaviva, 2737m.a.s.l., monte Focalone 2676m.a.s.l.) and Blockhaus (2142m.a.s.l.), dominated by the ruins of a Bourbon fortalice. This area is characterized by the endemic essence of mountain pine (Pinus Mugo).
