About the property

Madonna degli Angeli

Agriturismo Madonna degli Angeli: NATURE, ADVENTURE AND RELAX ... ONLY 30 MIN. FROM BEACHES !

Accommodation in 2 cottages of 2/3 and 4/6 places (totally 7 SELF APARTMENTS), fully-equipped and restructured, bear the typical atmosphere of the region. The large garden includes an elevated swimming pool.

Our farmstay is a 17th century coaching inn in 5 acres (2 hectares) of grounds within 23 acres (9 hectares) of farmland at 200 m. above sea level.

Because of its geographical and road position the place is ideal for the visit of the whole Abruzzo and of its famous National Parks. In the nearby you can visit medieval villages, abbeys, castles and hermitages, all surrounded by mountains and wildness, as well as you can taste typical gastronomy, discover traditions and folklore. In 30 minutes you can reach the city of Pescara with its long sandy beaches and its international airport (with several low cost flights); to reach Rome it takes about 1,5 hours (while 2 h. for direct bus for easy daily tours - 2 km. from the stop).

Your hosts would be delighted to assist guests with their itineraries, arrange for guides and advise on local culture and different activities. Web-site: www.madonnadegliangeli.com

Abruzzo, or “Abruzzi” according to old, is a special region in many ways.

First is called “the green area of Europe” for the highest percentage of land protected by Parks and Reserves (even as much as 33% of the territory is bound, the highest percentage in Europe).

Second, the high mountains, including the three highest peaks of the Apennines and the perennial glacier most southern of Europe, are very close to the sea that in some seasons you can go for a swim in the morning and afternoon, in just 45 minutes, go skiing in the mountains! Although this factor has contributed to its rich biodiversity (one of the major in Europe), being able to vary from landscapes of the coast, with palm trees and Mediterranean vegetation, to the high mountain, with alpine stars and glacial relicts like the “Mugo” pine or rare animals.

Even from a geomorphological point of view the territory manifests deep diversity. Consequently, the mountains are very different from them, as well as ancient villages built by the man which, using materials found on site, greatly changes its architecture and building styles within a few minutes. In just a short time everything is different: nature, villages, traditions and customs, ancient economic activities.

Another prerogative of the area is the extreme preservation and attachment to its own traditions and rituals of the people who live “separated” from the various valleys, along the coast or in the villages at high altitudes, thanks to the pastoral economy that pushed the economy and the wealth on top since the Middle Ages … . Even today in some areas seems to live life scenes or ancestral rites medieval, almost always actually of pagan origin and pre-Roman times. The people of Abruzzo, notoriously conservative and obstinate pride, jealously preserve and perpetuate their traditions not for touristic re-enactments … but as they feel those deep inside.

You will realize that the beauty of this region lies not only in its monuments, in its particularly wild and varied nature, in the exceptional biodiversity of flora and fauna, but especially in the way in which traditions, customs, ways of life, ancient cultures and religious rites were preserved.

Next to us, totally free, there are:

- More than 1 500 000,00 acres of Parks, mountains and Nature Reserves (36% of the whole territory, the highest percentage in Europe);

- About 130 km of sea coast (guaranteed by 13 Blue Flags);

- Countless abbeys, monasteries, castles and monuments (this region is among the top places in the club of Most Beautiful Villages in Italy with 19 historical towns mentioned).

Among the various possibilities listed here briefly: hiking and nature trails of various types, cayac, including horse riding and hiking with donkeys, mountain biking, paragliding, hang gliding, golf, skiing, thermal baths (only to be healing and not open year-round), as well as churches, castles, monasteries and medieval villages, wine tasting tours and a lot of tradition and folklore.

All strictly away from tourist and more crowded destinations!

Your hosts are the de Pompeis family, which has a long and proud history in Abruzzo. We are deeply involved in local culture and with care we have managed this farmstay for over thirty years, as part of the family estate.

We are delighted to assist our guests with their itineraries, arrange for guides and advise on local cultural and naturalistic itineraries, in addition to restaurants, sports activities, local artisan and folklore traditional festivals.

About Lorenzo de Pompeis

(It is the donkey speaking, right in the picture ... !)

My owner is named Lorenzo, 50 years old and is a sociologist, but he chose to devote his energy to keep alive the house of his family estate, because he believes that in the TRADITION there is the FUTURE!

Fortunately, it has a nice family with two sweet little girls who also love nature and animals.

Me and my owners really love our land and we will help you with pleasure to discover the wonders of Abruzzo !

Why Lorenzo de Pompeis chose Pescara

The country house is owned by Lorenzo s family since the end of 1.600 and perfectly preserves the original structure and many of the old furniture. Is managed directly by the owners for more than 35 years.

All apartments are self-contained, with their own kitchenette, entrance and private garden or panoramic terrace. They are surrounded by sunny lawns, large grounds with Mediterranean plants and original archaeological remains of the area itself.

Very good is the geographical location and road connection: just below the mountains of the two National Parks of Majella and Gran Sasso, only 30 minutes from the beaches and from the Pescara airport (with low cost flights), very close to picturesque historic centers and only 1.5 hours away from Rome (even with direct buses - stop at 1 km)

What makes this farmhouse unique

The private gardens surrounding all apartments allow you to enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun or dine by candlelight nicely, maybe cooking on the barbeque outside. The outdoor areas are taken care of to make life as pleasant as possible outside, although rental properties are spacious and equipped with all comforts.

In the morning you can choose with extreme ease if you like to conquer the high peaks of the nearby mountains (3,000 meters high), or decide instead to dive into the blue of the nearby and comfortable beaches, or simply relax by the pool while enjoying the view of the mountains, maybe sipping a fine wine from our wine cellar.

Who wants to relax can also enjoy the shade of the pine woods adjacent to the solarium equipped with deckchairs, sun loungers and hammocks and let the kids have fun surrounded by our loving animals (dogs, cats, donkeys, goats, chickens, etc.. ), which often roam freely in the meadows around the house looking for caresses.

A beautiful respite in the Italian countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic! Starting with the owner Lorenzo, who was incredibly helpful and kind. He alerted us to the many sightings and things that were to be done in the area..from medieval villages to castles and monasteries! I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful part of Italy. The house was something out of a book, and made our stay feel so much more authentic. The apt was beautifully furnished and had everything that we could want. We enjoyed having our breakfasts and lunches outside, and had a wonderful time exploring the property. The animals were joyful characters, the views in general were breath taking. I am hoping to someday vacation here again. A couple of tips, Rome is only a short bus ride away (great for day trips), the general supermarket in the town nearby (Torre de' Passeri) has everything that you might need, and the Pizzeria Il Capriccio Sas Di Aielli Tiziano in the same town makes delicious pizza. And honestly, Lorenzo was such a gracious host, which was a highlight of our trip through Europe.

An Italian Hide-away in wild Abruzzo

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by a friendly and knowledgeable Lorenzo, who piled us with literature of the region. He straightaway recommended the best restaurants, and where to go for the best of local architecture and nature viewing. We had only a short stay but the experience was wonderful! Also as a Chinese family from Singapore, we were touched by the warmth of the Italians in Abruzzo.

I would highly recommend this Farm Stay.

Thank you, Lorenzo!

un lieu unique et inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé en Aout dernier une semaine délicieuse dans ce lieu unique et inoubliable ! les animaux en liberté ont fait le bonheur des enfants, l'espace protégé de la propriété est tres grand, avec de multiples jeux pour petits et grands (ping pong etc...), chaises longues à l'ombre des grands arbres, multiple essences.

C'est un lieu beau et vivant, soigneusement entretenu par Lorenzo et Caterina, qui sont les meilleurs hôtes qui soient, attentifs et accueillants, toujours prets à donner d'excellents conseils personnalisés sur toutes les ballades et découvertes de cette superbe région.

Ce fut un séjour magnifique, un grand merci a eux !

Notes:
On the farm there are 2 small pools, made with great attention to detail and carefully placed in a typical Abruzzo rural setting: one for the adults (8x4 sq.m., 1,20 m. deep, elevated and inaccessible to small children, if not through gate and key supplied only to adults) and another one at the ground level very shallow (3 m diameter x height 0.70) for the exclusive use of young children. For the construction we used the source material recovery (ancient stones and tuffs of old buildings) to make it like a big Fontanile, typical of our area. The wooden pool deck allows guests to enjoy the beautiful view over the fields and mountains that surround us. Near the pool, the cool of the pine trees invites our guests relaxing moments. In this area we also have a solarium with chairs and tables, sun loungers, deckchairs, hammocks, umbrellas. As well as we have pets that run almost freely around the gardens (some cats, a loving Golden Retriver dog, a goat, a sweet donkey and more.
