One thing I love doing when I travel is stay in really authentic places. I recently stayed in an Agriturismo in Silvi close to Pescara on the Adriatic Coast of Italy.
Surrounded by 45 hectares of amazing scenery and the blue ocean it is a farmstead heaven. Everywhere you look there are fruit and olive trees, wild herbs, vines, tomatoes and beautiful lines of cypress trees.
Each of its villas have been loving restored into well furnished apartments and the country house has been restored to house some individual rooms and a beautiful restaurant with an outdoor shaded courtyard.
Seriously I felt like I was in a countryside heaven. However Eco-friendly and self sustainable this place was it still has luxurious facilities including a fantastic pool area and 2 spas.
I only regret that I couldn't stay longer. There is just so much to see around the resort and I would of loved to of gone horse riding...
