La Maiella are family-friendly apartments in Loreto Aprutino in Abruzzo. This hidden bolthole offers stunning views, a pool, simple apartments and the best food ever. A real agriturismo.

Down a long driveway, La Maiella seems like a hidden corner of Abruzzo, tucked away amongst rolling countryside and with beautiful views, over the wooded hillside, towards the high Maiella Mountains and the Grand Sasso. The sea is only about half an hour away from La Maiella making it the perfect spot for families.

La Maiella’s sunny yellow farmhouse is quite gracious, standing amongst well-tended lawns and a natural landscape. Accommodation is in the main house of La Maiella, in chalet-style buildings, either in the grounds or in converted farm buildings. They are simple and unsophisticated, but tasteful – perfectly suited to its rustic country environment. There is a lounge area where you can play games, watch tv or catch up on a good book and a brick-vaulted dining room. The swimming pool, on a sunny terrace, is absolutely beautiful and really makes the most of this stunning location.

The owner loves Abruzzo with a passion and happily helps guests plan their trips and days out beyond Citta Sant’Angelo. At La Maiella, you are not just guests, but friends, who receive the very best of welcomes, often dining with the owner and family, sampling the genuine and time-honoured recipes of the regions of Abruzzo, with some secrets thrown in. Long Travel clients have always been in awe of the hospitality.

The 26-hectare farm of La Maiella, with 11 hectares of woods, grows kiwi, cereals, olives and grapes. La Maiella rears chickens, ducks, turkeys and rabbits. Food and wine are mostly organically produced, and they will happily cater for vegetarian and gluten-free diets (in fact, they have a few secrets up their sleeve if you wish to avoid gluten, but love pasta and pizza!).

Halfway (approx 7km) between Loreto Aprutino, and Penne, the traditional agritourist farm of La Maiella is not far from civilisation, yet feels a world away. A rural setting such as this is difficult to beat. If you love natural surroundings, fantastic food, really great wine and supreme hospitality, a holiday at La Maiella is always a treat for both couples and families.

“Being vegetarian and being presented with such an array of most wonderful home cooked dishes was absolutely fantastic. The meals for both vegetarians and meat eaters cannot be praised enough. ” Judith & Steven, Taunton

“The food, even if we weren’t exactly sure what we had ordered, was delicious – lovely pasta and vegetables in particular, and as for the tiramisu….As my husband Pete said (who needed convincing when I suggested agritourism!) the bar has been raised again. All in all, another great holiday; fabulous scenery, wonderful weather, and excellent places to stay. Thank you Long Travel! ” Helen and Pete, Leicester

Thank you again for your recommendation, we thoroughly enjoyed Abruzzo. Look forward to next year’s brochure. ” Judy, Solihull

Steve Bleach wrote for The Sunday Times, “….this isolated agriturismo outpost goes down a storm with kids. It’s family heaven. When you’re bored of cooking, the owner’s mother will serve up sensational dinners using produce from the 26-hectare farm, together with locally-sourced organic ingredients. “
