"I've chosen April and May to bring my Dutch guets to visit the Trabocchi Coast in Abruzzo, because spring is my favorite season, the trees are blooming, the jasmine enchants with its parfume and the blue of the sky blends with the sea that becomes smooth as oil.


It's a 4-day trip, where we go to discovery the territory, to live emotions with beautiful landscapes, delicious typical dishes, savoring the slow life style and the warm welcome of the locals.


We visit archaeological sites from the Roman age in the city of Lanciano, the beautiful church of San Giovanni in Venere overlooking the Mediterranean in the town of Fossacesia, the D'Annunzio Hermitage in San Vito, a terrace with a gash on the coast over the Trabocchi, were the local poet got inspired for his poems.


We go shopping together in local markets, getting the ingredients for our cooking classes, and between the markets we go for our "caffe' espresso", standing at the bar counter to drink our coffee or try an aperitif.


We find out what a Trabocco is and how it works, visiting the fisherman bay of Vallevo' when they come back in the morning with fresh fish caught with an ancient sistem with nets.


And then we pick lemons and for our recipes from the trees of our B&B, the same fruits that are used for the jams served for breakfast along with homemade bread and oil from their own production.


Then there are those moments of relaxation, when we enjoy the sun on the beach, and those magical clear evenings where after dinner we count the stars from the terrace of the B&B."



Arrivederci in Abruzzo!!!
