Contrada Cecalupo, 11, 65014 Loreto Aprutino (Pescara)
In a 10 hectare olive grove, a few km from the historic hamlet of Loreto Apruntino, the agriturismo stands in the rolling Abruzzo hills overlooking the valley of the Tavo river, in an area known as the “The Pescara terrace over the Maiella” because it offers views stretching from the Maiella massif to the Gran Sasso.
The farm produces organic PDO extra virgin olive oil.
The 4 cosy guest rooms feature the famous Castelli pottery, which appears throughout the agriturismo. All rooms are also tastefully furnished and include private bathrooms with showers, flat screen TVs and air conditioning. Three rooms are located on the first floor with balconies and scenic views of the countryside and the Maiella, and one room is located on the ground floor and accessible to disabled guests.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed in the lounge or outdoors, under the wooden veranda surrounded by green olive trees. Every day guests can enjoy freshly baked bread, tarts and biscotti for breakfast; homemade pasta, locally produced cheeses such as giuncata and mozzarella for lunch; and local meats and typical “arrosticini” grilled meat skewers for dinner.
As well as mountain bikes, the farm also provides a relaxation and fitness area, with a swimming pool, a small gym with professional equipment, a reading room with TV and stereo, a self-service area with barbecue and induction hob, a gazebo and a well-maintained lawn amongst the olive trees where guests can lounge in the sun and enjoy nature.
The agriturismo is around 20 minutes from the Rigopiano area, the “gateway" to the Gran Sasso Park, and the starting point for a host of trekking trails. 20 minutes also takes you to the Piana del Voltigno and 45 minutes to Campo Imperatore. Nearby you’ll also find a riding centre, typical historic hamlets and protected areas.
A few km takes you to Loreto Aprutino, a city rich in art and history, with a beautiful historic centre and museums to visit. For those who love the sea, as well as many private beach resorts, you can also explore the protected marine area of Torre del Cerrano and the Trabocchi Coast.

We have been there on Holiday
It was the first time for us and i can tell you that the welcome from the owners were wonderful, We felt like been surrounded by their hospitality. The food is very good and the rooms are perfect for kids.
The swimming pool is filled in with salted water and not chlore
I don't have enough words to thank them
Our stay in this wonderful place was a fantastic experience. A reality surrounded by olive trees, framed by the hills of Abruzzo, a step from the sea and close to the massif of Gran Sasso. The estate, well inserted in the environmental context, has been studied and created by the hosts with attention to detail, not only for the pleasure of the guests, but also with attention to nature. The choice of organic farming by Piero and Laide is well worth the effort, Laide's cuisine enhances the flavors of the farm's products and Piero's work is engrossing in all respects. The friendliness and courtesy of the hosts are so authentic that they think they are almost part of their family since time immemorial. The friendship born with Piero and Laide was the added value of this holiday and we hope that over time it will be strengthened. So enjoy the relaxation to those who want to try this experience.

We had a really remarkable stay in every respect.
First of all, we would like to thank Piero, Laide and Ruby for their warm, friendly and cheerful welcome.
Already, before arriving on the spot, they took the time to reassure us, because we were a little worried before booking.
Worried, because we are still wondering about what we will find, almost 1000 km from home and with three children under eleven years old.
The help was great for the children's meals, especially for one of them who has food allergies.
She listened to us, she said "no problem", and she made sure that during the stay everything went well. We were reassured and we really relaxed on this subject which was really very sensitive for us. This allowed us to have a better holiday.
Then let's talk about the framework. A magnificent view of the surrounding mountains of this beautiful region of Abruzzo that we did not know. The site is even more beautiful than the photos, because they have made improvements compared to the photos on the website. A beautiful swimming pool, of a size well adapted to the number of houses, a property strewn with olive trees, a vegetable garden and an orchard which provide local products and above all this basilica, the base of the homemade cuisine which perfumes the dishes that are served at the evening meal. Authentic cuisine, local specialities and taste on the plates.
We enjoyed the meals taken together. It is a very good way to get to know the other occupants of the residence and to create a relaxed atmosphere. The children also liked it and we met some great people.
At last. We could still talk for a long time about our satisfaction and the good time we had, the quality of our hosts and this magnificent residence, but simply and sincerely, thank you again to Piero, Laide and Ruby for the beautiful holidays you helped us to spend. You will remain in our hearts.
Lorenzo, N. and the children.
