Where we are
The farmstay is located directly between Rome and Naples, about two hours from each city, and is well served by buses, trains, and highways. The closest bus and train station is in the nearby town of Sora. Once in Sora you can catch a taxi for euro 10. We can provide you with a number to prearrange that.
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, cafés, 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 our beautiful forest.
