“Nature, superb bio food, hikes and cosy dinners in lovely company”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

What a gem in the middle of the Majella park. Perfect place for a complete get-away, whether it be for hiking in the scenic mountains, horse-riding, or just relaxing in a spa.
Definitely recommended for families or for couples seeking that peace of mind.

We were the only couple there from outside of Italy, yet we were welcomed by Marissa and her husband in absolutely no way different to the Italian guests.
The room was very spacious (houses are rustic but the quality of sleep was unparalleled) with a small kitchen, and a fairly small bathroom but the organic shampoo and soap products were perfect!
We did hike during the day, after which we just relaxed in a hammock, until a copious 3 course dinner was served, made of locally grown vegetables and bio-pasta, very traditional (simple but oh so tasty) dishes, different the two nights were were there, accompanied by local wines, and great conversations around the table.

We will most definitely go back to Pietrantica and visit Marissa and her family.

A couple of words of advice: do follow the directions given on the website, as the GPS can easily get lost in that area.
Also, Marissa mentioned that the best time to visit is in May, but any time is definitely worth it.

Room Tip: The half-board basis (including breakfast and dinner) is definitely worth it and more!

Lovely place to stop after a days walk. Dinner is held together with the other guests and the food is delicious. The rooms are large and private with a nice bathroom. It is a totally relaxed place with a large terras and lovely cake all day.

We briefly returned to Pietrantica again this June, making it our third stay in Decontra in the last 18 months - hopefully this provides some indication to just how special stopping here can be.

Deconta is a very small village in the Majella National Park, very near to Caraminico Terme (about 10 minutes drive away). As you drive up to Pietrantica, you immediately start to feel immersed in the beauty of the Majella National Park. Your eyes are drawn upwards towards the mountains of Monte Rapina and Pesco Falcone which lie just above.

Marisa was there to meet us - she is so friendly and welcoming, that within minutes you quickly start to unwind and relax and start to appreciate the simplicity and beauty of the setting.

We only stopped for three nights, but we were blessed with good weather and managed to walk for two full days - Monte Amaro from La Maielletta and Monte Marrone & Le Muccia from Roccacarramanico. Both walks are now familiar to us, but very rewarding walks near to Decontra.

We chose to eat at Pietrantica every night to enjoy Marisa’s home cooked food and to mix with the other guests and exchange stories. Marisa uses fresh locally sourced produce and delivers simple meals that are delicious, all washed down with her local red wine.

We so wished we could have stayed longer as our time slipped by far too quickly, but we left with a warmth in our hearts and a continued desire to return when we are next in the area.

We stayed 2 nights in this B&B; it is an old farming house, nicely restored. We were warmly received by Marisa, a women of that region, speaking very well english. She could tell us a lot of the region, possibilities for walks, and other touristic information. Our room was very nice, clean and spacious.
You can have your dinner at this B&B, and it is good. Mirisa is cooking herself, using products of the region. You will have the evening meal together with other guest (if there are) in a nice common room.
This agriturismo is located in a very small and authentic village in an unspoiled landscape.
Marvellous!

We stayed 4 nights in the agroturismo Pietrantica in Decontra (Ceramanico therme) and did some hiking in the Majella National Park. We enjoyed our stay very much and Camillo and Marissa did everything to make it just great. The rooms were clean and spaceous, the food prepared fresh with local products from their own farm and during dinner we shared the table with the other italian guest, which gave us a warm feeling as on italian family gathering.

Since the place is about 10 min drive away from the main village Ceramanico therma, you can enjoy a peaceful place with a great view into the Morrotto and Majella Mountains.

We were on a motor bike tour and only spent one night here. A big mistake. The food was amazing, we enjoyed meeting the other guests over dinner and I want to come back with my walking boots and take advantage of the amazing walking. They have made what appears a bit of a ramshakle group of buildings into an amazing place. The thick farm walls kept the rooms cool, and a beer in the garden was very welcome after arriving in leathers. Marisa makes everything herself, from growig the Spelt she used for the pasta, and bartering with her neighbours for milk, and grapes from which they make there own wine. This was the highlight of our holiday, and we went to Lucca, Sorrento, Venice....so pretty amazing!
And she did all our washing too! Wow

I recently stayed for one week at Pietrantica in October. Being a non-peak time this was perfect for enjoying the beauty and variety of walks in the area. Decontra is a small village and that is its charm. Marisa and Camillo understand the appeal of the small village and its pastoral tradition and enjoy with their guests the joys of natural home grown food and wine and traditional cooking. For this type of holiday it is a wonderful place to stay and nothing was a problem for Marisa or Camillo who were keen to help. Michael
