Loreto Aprutino: Le Magnolie

Loreto Aprutino, Phone: 085.828.9534

Reviewed by: Nino from USA, review #639

When: July 2004

An agriturismo on a lovely olive farm in Abruzzo. Close to the mountains and the sea, with comfortable rooms,a great pool, and wondeful home cooked dinners.

Le Magnolie is an agritourismo on a lovely olive farm in Abruzzo very near the picturesque town of Loreto Aprutino. We stayed at one of the rooms in the old farmhouse, but there are also several apartments available in this and another building on the property. The room was clean and functional, albeit a bit rustic, with a nice bathroom with shower. The property has huge pool, set in lovely surroundings with mountain views, available to its guests. Itís in a garden adjacent to the farm house and never closes. The property is reached via good roads from Loreto Aprutino or Penne to a crushed stone road about a mile long leading to the farmhouse. The road is in good condition and is relatively straight,so access is no problem. The accommodations are quiet and peaceful with some beautiful views. Dinner is served in the old cantina every night except Sunday and Wednesday, and is optional. You just sign up at breakfast if we wish to have dinner that night. The dinners were a real highlight. You eat at a large communal table with the rest of the guests and the food is great. The dinners include a variety of antipasti, usually 4 to 5 different bowls, a pasta for the primi course, a meat dish for the secondi with contorni, followed by one or two home made desserts. This is all accompanied with bottomless pitchers of the local Montepulciano Dí Abruzzo. The rate we paid for a room for 2 with private bath was 65.00 Euro per night. The dinners were 25.00 Euro each, all inclusive.

We would recommend Le Magnolie to anyone looking to stay in this part of Abruzzo. The mountains were close by as was the sea. It is a relatively easy drive to Pescara, Vasto, Castelli, Sulmona, Scanno,Guardiagrele, Chieti, and Lanciano, though a bit further to get to Larino, Ururi, and other points in Molise.
