A friend and I stayed in one of the farm’s larger suites and absolutely loved our time here. Even at the beginning of November the weather was dry and sunny, and our lodging was comfortably warm. We were two middle-aged ladies who felt really cared for by our host Lorenzo and his manager Marino.
Abruzzo is off the well-worn tourist path and is one of my favorite places to visit in Italy. The breathtaking mountains dusted with villages clinging to their sides, some of the best fresh food in Italy and surprisingly delicious dining in hidden restaurants everywhere.
You won’t find a lot of English speakers here unlike in the cities. But you will find friendly, helpful people who are not resentful of a constant parade of tourists as in some Italian cities. If you are like us, you will also find yourself often lost, scratching your head over the closed gate of a medieval church you have just driven 15k to reach, and squeezing your oversized car through ancient alleys on vertigous mountainsides until you can go no farther. Then there are the ski to sea opportunities, but I will let others talk of that.
We happened to be at the farm during the olive harvest. I’m sure whatever time of year you visit, you’ll find a piece of authentic Italy here. I would definitely return for a stay at Madonna degli Angeli. Thank you Lorenzo and Marino for such a wonderful visit.
Would definitely recommend this place.
The house is so clean & well looked after. Seems like everything has been thought of to make our stay so good. It was great to be able to drink the water from the tap, which saved carrying lots of bottles of water from the supermarket. Showers worked well, with plenty of hot water. Much needed fans in the bedroom to keep us cool during the night.
Although the family lived upstairs they never intruded. The house was ideal for our 2 yrs old, & he was able to run around in the garden without coming to any harm.
The pool was also kept very clean, although deep.
San Valentino is within walking distance & our 2 yrs old loved the Dinosaurs in the museum, along with the Gelato in the town. Although not a lot of English is spoken we found everyone very friendly & helpful. The local supermarket has most items required but does close for riposo (siesta) but there is one open all day in Scafa, which is not far away.
We loved watching a typical Italian town.
Beautiful views to wake up to each morning, we couldn't have asked for more for a very relaxing holiday.Thank for allowing our family to stay in your lovely place, we would have loved to stay longer & sorry I never saw you before we left to thank you personally. EXCELLENT.
