My partner and I spent 3 nights at Agriturismo Tholos, which is located in a beautiful setting in the Apennine Mountains.
Gabrielle and Paola were wonderful hosts, making us feel like valued guests in their home. Gabrielle couldn't have been more generous in helping us to choose restaurants for our dinners (although the agriturismo itself provides meals that people from all over the area come to enjoy). David, who works at the agriturismo, was a delightful host during our breakfasts. It was a pleasure to spend time with him. Even Luisa, whom we met only briefly as we were the only guests during our few days there, was utterly charming.
On our last morning, during breakfast, Gabrielle brought the last figs from his fig tree in Pescara for us to enjoy. It's this kind of personal touch that made the experience of being at Agritursimo Tholos an absolute delight on every level.
Bravi a tutti!
