Located in Pescosolido
Campground
The farm is located in the small village of Pescosolido, at the foot of the Abruzzi National Park. The area around the farm is one of the most beautiful places in Italy; mountains, waterfalls, hiking trails, lakes, wildlife, and many interesting ruins, churches, and castles are easily accessible and the area is not filled with tourists like other parts of Italy.

The farm is close to the town of Sora (about 35,000 inhabitants) where you can eat at local restaurants, stroll along the lively main street, visit the numerous shops, cafes, and pubs, use the internet, or go to the open-air market on Thursday mornings.

The farm itself is a large property where guests can roam around, eat fresh fruit, spend time with the animals, relax in the shade of an olive tree, or hike around the trails in the beautiful forest.

The venue
At Italy Farm Stay, you can choose from different types of rooms to fit your budget and your vacation. All of the rooms have terracotta tiles, beautifully hand-painted trees, wildlife on the walls, and wood furniture with hand-carved details. The beds are new and comfortable, so you can be assured that you will have a pleasant night's sleep during your stay.

The rooms have been recently restored and are equipped with a fan in the summer and a heating unit in the colder months. Air-conditioning is also provided for an additional cost of 5 EUR per day in the en-suite rooms. However, all of the rooms are made of limestone walls which keep them quite cool in the summer and air-conditioning is not necessary for most guests.

The larger rooms can accommodate up to four or five people. There is a crib available for families travelling with young children. Camping on the farm is also available for guests who are looking for a more affordable stay but who want to enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the farm. You can bring your own tent and equipment, or you can rent a tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping mat for a small fee.

The campground is in a beautiful area of the farm, close to many fruit trees and vegetables which you can pick yourself and eat for free. You will wake up each morning to a beautiful view of the mountains and the surrounding area. Included in the camping fee is the use of a new shared indoor bathroom (the bathroom is equipped with a hot shower).

Food
During this retreat, you will be served daily vegetarian breakfast and dinner at the farm. Non-vegetarian dinners are also available but the staff must be notified in advance. The farm tries to be as self-sufficient as possible while creating nutritious and delectable meals for its guests.

Ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, potatoes, eggs, meat, olive oil, and wine come directly from the farm. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy-free meals are available upon request. All the ingredients coming from the farm a strictly organic and the ones that are bought from outside are not necessarily so but we always committed to offering healthy food.

Breakfast
Breakfast on the farm, which takes place between 8 am and 10 am, is a traditional Italian simple breakfast. It includes coffee, tea, homemade seasonal jam, bread, milk, and biscuits. Seasonal fruits and vegetables from the farm are often included in the breakfast.

Dinner
Dinner is a special time to sit together, which will give you the opportunity to eat a traditional Italian meal full of wholesome food from a wide variety of farm products.

Dinner includes two dishes which are usually pasta which is often homemade by hand that day, followed by seasonal vegetables, fresh salad, local handmade cheese, homegrown potatoes, eggs from the farm, lentils, or beans.

Non-vegetarian meals are available on request. Italy Farm Stay offers a dish with locally selected meat such as steak, chicken, or pork for an additional cost of three euros. The meal is also accompanied by local bread. Homemade wine is served with the meals for an additional cost of 2,50 Euro per half a litre.
