I chose this agritourism trusting the reviews on this site were ... and they were all true! To get there you follow a road that opens the view over the whole horizon surrounding .. The view is breathtaking .. The Agritourism is located at the end of this road ... and the road ends where the Agritourism is located .. It seems to be far from the world .. do not take the phones, do not pass cars and you do not hear nearly a fly .. In short, a small corner of silence in this chaotic world .. The friendliness, simplicity and sweetness of Marisa, Grandfather Pauline and Camillo, are the framework for everything .. It starts taking with them the memories of how good it is to live the days of simplicity it offers the earth ... and the grandeur that comes in whether it is appreciated .. I have the memory of Marisa children who eat breakfast with us in the morning ... and that make you look charming in how the children are rare! Thanks for the wonderful weekend.

Nice to hear from you! In case it helps you: feel free to use my pictures on your website. Your website is very attractive and has already beautiful pictures! Incidently while I was reading an article on holiday travelling in the Dutch newspaper "De Volkskrant" I noticed your Agriturismo Pietrantica was mentioned as an example of good nature preservation combined with an beautiful vacation accommodation. Maybe you recognise the author since he was in your agriturismo some time ago. Surprise, isn't it? I scanned some portions of that page and translated the Dutch into English (my Italian is not that good as you know...). See the section below. Hope it enjoys you. Love and greetings from Mierlo.
Louis Frankenhuis (64) Former director of OAD, TUI and KRAS. (Major Dutch travel organisations) President of nature organisation PAN Parcs. 'I am in this travel branch since 1983. I admit I have been pushing mass tourism from the Netherlands. There is still an almost primary need for sun and beaches. But I think touroperators have to focus more on offering unique experiences in the future. Holidays adding something really special to your personal experiences. For example PAN Parcs, one of the big natural parcs in Europe. They try to combine environmental protection and the interest of the local communities. I myself visited the Majella Parc in the Italian Abruzzo. We stayed with a farmer in Agriturismo Pietrantica and had a course on nature photography. Peasant woman Marisa cooks with vegetables from her own kitchen garden and serves wine from her own vineyard. At reasonable prices and with the pleasant feeling that your money helps to preserve that beautiful area.
