What a gem in the middle of the Majella park. Perfect place for a complete get-away, whether it be for hiking in the scenic mountains, horse-riding, or just relaxing in a spa.
Definitely recommended for families or for couples seeking that peace of mind.
We were the only couple there from outside of Italy, yet we were welcomed by Marissa and her husband in absolutely no way different to the Italian guests.
The room was very spacious (houses are rustic but the quality of sleep was unparalleled) with a small kitchen, and a fairly small bathroom but the organic shampoo and soap products were perfect!
We did hike during the day, after which we just relaxed in a hammock, until a copious 3 course dinner was served, made of locally grown vegetables and bio-pasta, very traditional (simple but oh so tasty) dishes, different the two nights were were there, accompanied by local wines, and great conversations around the table.
We will most definitely go back to Pietrantica and visit Marissa and her family.
A couple of words of advice: do follow the directions given on the website, as the GPS can easily get lost in that area.
Also, Marissa mentioned that the best time to visit is in May, but any time is definitely worth it.
