Tents, rooms & VW Camper...
Camping your way: Just pitch your tent, chill & relax. There are no electric hook ups, no marked out plots, no space for campervans (apart from pre-booked VW Campers), just camping as nature intended. But, panic not, you don't have to strip off, go unwashed or pee on the compost heap to be totally at one with nature. We do have some rather nice showers, toilets, cooking facilities, power points for charging devices and free wi-fi. And we would rather not see your dangly bits!
Camping our way: If travelling with all the paraphernalia of camping life is difficult for you, or you just fancy giving it a try, then why not rent one of our tents (plus equipment) for just €1 per night? Fancy a bit of glamping? Use one of our beautiful canvas bell tents, or sleep in Rosemary, our retired little VW Camper.
• Bell Tents: 100% cotton canvas, these gorgeous tents are suspended around a central pole allowing plenty of sleeping and living space for 2, or 4 at a push. The canvas is breathable ensuring the tents stay cool in high temperatures, but are also treated to ensure they are waterproof too. They have mosquito vents and a zipped in groundsheet to keep bugs at bay. The sides of the tent can even be rolled up to create a beautiful canopy effect for those balmy summer nights, or when you want to lie in bed watching the twinkling lights of the fireflies at play.
• Rent a €1 Tent: these aren't glamping tents, they're just ordinary, but lovely, grass-roots camping tents. You put up the tent yourself and all you pay is the standard camping charge of €12 per person, per night plus €1 per night for the rent of the tent and all equipment, if you stay a week it's even cheaper. We have 2 & 4 berth available and all you need bring is your own bedding, everything else we supply. Full info here: tent-free travel.
• Rosemary: Having loyally transported us 1000's of miles around Europe, Rosemary is now enjoying her retirement amongst our olives. Rosemary is a T25 VW Camper who can comfortably sleep 4 friendly adults (a double “rock ‘n’ roll” bed and a double bed in the pop top). She has a small kitchen with a little cooker, tables & chairs. She also has a large awning attached to her side with bags of space, and a separate sleeping compartment if you’d rather not get too friendly!
If you camp our way, all you need bring is your lovely selves, we'll supply everything else: bed linen, towels, kitchen equipment and so on. We're flexible on the linen and towels, so if you'd like to bring your own just let us know and we'll happily reduce your costs a little.
Camping without camping: If camping really isn’t your thing, we do have two very comfortable self-catering rooms: an en-suite room in the farmhouse with a large double bed, fridge and wi-fi, and a spacious room in the barn for two adults or a small family (double bed, small single bed and a single sofa bed). All the outside living, sun terrace, BBQs, communal barn, laundry and so on are available to you as if you were camping. This way, whether in the house or barn, you get the best of both worlds.
A little bit extra: Whatever your needs or passion, we can (within reason!) fit in with you. We can pick you (and your bike) up from Pescara Airport or Chieti Station, we can arrange bike hire, give you maps, guidance and itineraries. We can drop you off at the top of a mountain if all you want to do is hike or cycle down, or if you’re a climber we can show you the crags and give you crag guides. Just ask and we’ll see what we can do.
