The farm is very close to the wonderful medieval village of Anversa degli Abruzzi. Also, the near villages of Castrovalva (5 km), Villalago (9 km) and Scanno (16 km) with its characteristic lakes, all reachable through the beautiful “Sagittarius Gorges” Reserve, offer suggestive sceneries which inspired artworks by renowed authors like D’Annunzio ed Escher too. Around 50km from the farm are three of the most important national parks in Italy: the Gran Sasso Park, the Majella Park and the National Park of Abruzzo.
Six apartments (for a total of 30 beds) comfortably furnished and equipped to a high standard are available in the farm in a recently built rural cottage. A restaurant is also available, where it's possible to taste our organic products. Further rooms are available in the center of the medieval village of Anversa degli Abruzzi.
Depending on the period of the stay, it is possible to join several activities, scanned by the biological rhythms and cycles of nature. The organic farm is primarily involved in sheep and goat breeding and in cheese production. Every day it's possible to accompany shepherds and herds on their way to the grounds
through the wonderful environment surrounding the farm and to attend milking, feeding, shearing and even new births.
It's also possible to participate in the cheese making of ricotta and of all our products, typical specialties of our territory, appreciated all over the world, in order to learn the basics of the ancient art of cheese making.
In the gardens are cultivated organic seasonal vegetables and there are many fruit trees, thus making it possible to attend the harvesting and the production of jams, fruit compotes, olive oil and typical liqueurs.
In our kitchen you can work with our chef on the recipes of our tradition, learning about fresh pasta, different ways to cook lamb and sheep and the use of spontaneous species from our mountains and grounds.
