I was backpacking with a friend and decided to include a few nights away from the usual tourists spots thus we decided to book 3 nights with Italy Farm Stay after checking out all the reviews.
With reliable bus service from/ to Rome, getting there is easy, though one must be prepared for lots of walking in order to get from the farm to the town, etc.
As everyone has commented, Antonello and his family is lovely and I must say we've had the most enjoyable stay!
The farm and Sora, on the whole, gives you the much desired peace & tranquility, yet one can choose to busy yourself with various activities... Leaning how to cook with Maria, going on hikes to the waterfall, old castle, horseback riding, sitting around the farm in the evenings where the sheep, horse and donkey are released for grazing & following hospitable Guiseppe who will show you around the farm, plucking fresh tomatoes, figs, drinking fresh wine, cheesemaking with the Sheperd as early as 5am, or just sit around and enjoy the peace and quiet.... It is simply beautiful and a nice change from the hustle and bustle of city living.
Oh yah, not forgetting the Volunteers that worked around the farm, they make the stay memorable too!
Do check out the market on Thursdays and Antique market on Sundays. We heard they are lovely too though we missed it this time round due to our schedule...
I hope to be back again!
