We have been collecting all the best getaway venues: B&Bs, hotels and other places to stay. All great destinations for a weekend away or a bit longer. On this beautiful Italian farm in the middle of nowhere, run by a Dutch couple, you can stay in a B&B, an apartment or a tent. All the while you have stunning views over the surrounding emerald green hills.
After following an unpaved, hairpin road that seems to lead to nowhere, you end up in an unknown spot that nevertheless immediately feels like home. This is in large part thanks to its Dutch owners, Annemiek and Joey. You can choose where to sleep: in the lovely Bed & Breakfast, in a cool apartment or in an adventurous tent. The beautiful Italian farm has a fabulous view and emerald green hills. At night you can enjoy the rare treat of perfect silence and see countless stars in the skies. And in the spring there are countless fireflies, too!
What’s for breakfast?
Sunshine and bird song! And a generous breakfast buffet with local produce like cheeses, cold cuts, sweet little tomatoes and the best fruit ever. Yoghurt or a fresh egg. Daily fresh bread from the village baker. And as many cappuccinos as you want.
One day one for example you can make a beautiful trip in the mountains, and the next day go for a freshly caught fish lunch in a seaside restaurant before enjoying a long leisurely afternoon. On the way ‘home’ you can visit some of the lovely old villages or take another walk around the beautiful squares of Ascoli Piceno.
Italians like their food. It is usually more important to them than the ambiance. It is in the restaurants with kitsch or bare interiors (and too much strip lighting!) that you may well find the best risotto ever. Joey and Annemiek can give you some great addresses to try out.
Good to know
