A wonderful find just outside the ancient hill town of Penne. Situated midway between the Maiella Mountains and the Adriatic, the location couldn't be more perfect for any kind of day trip you want to make. Massimo and Rita have developed a pristine agriturismo with modern amenities and incredible menus, using local products and growing many of their own grains and vegetables. Some mornings the local ricotta provider would just be dropping off his fresh supply for the day and Massimo would invite us to the table by offering the fresh cheese with chunks of the local rustic bread, olive oil made the previous fall from the olives from his own trees and a large juicy tomato Rita brought in from the garden just outside the front door. A more perfect lunch cannot be found. They are lovely, extremely knowledgable and personable people who have created the kind of home where I wish to return again and again.
