Apartments & pool in picturesque spot & a really warm welcome. Paul loves the owners and he thinks the agriturismo Il Grappolo is a paradise for couples, but knows his kids would love it too!

Il Grappolo, a small traditional agritourist farm, has bowled clients over by the warmth and generosity of its owners, Onello, Lea and three generations of their delightful family. They are so kind and welcoming that you will soon feel part of things.

Surrounded by acres of vineyards, olive trees and open countryside, with beautiful views, Il Grappolo is in a wonderfully tranquil and picturesque spot. Near two National Parks, about 2km from the small and pretty mediaeval town of Città Sant’Angelo, and just 8km from the coast, it is in an incomparable location. The lovely panorama stretches to the mountains in one direction, the town in another and to a strip of the sparkling blue Adriatic Sea on the horizon.

Il Grappolo’s simple apartments are in four former farm buildings – La Torretta, the old tower; Le Scuderie, the stables; La Cantina, the wine storage barn; and La Casa Colonica, the farmhouse. Lea has given her apartments a rural traditional feel, with a real country style. Period furniture, painted pine, iron framed beds, mix with ginghams, plaids and flowery chinzy fabrics. Some apartments have characterful stone floors and original wooden beams, whilst others are a bit more modern.

Lea & Onello produce their own DOC wines, mainly from the famous Montepulciano and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo grapes. They also grow most of their own fruit and vegetables, which Il Grappolo guests are welcome to pick and eat.

The lovely swimming pool, about 20 metres from the apartments, is the perfect place to enjoy this peaceful and attractive spot. The farm also has dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, pigs, geese, a peacock, a donkey called Rosina, a tiny horse called Rocco and a family of beautiful deer, which can be hard to spot amongst the olive trees!

Il Grappolo is a slice of nature’s paradise and it offers tranquillity for adults and a supreme freedom for children. Watch your kids beam with joy as they gather grass and feed Rosina and Rocco – it’s a memorable image on many holiday snaps already!

Review

“True to the comments in the brochure we were indeed bowled over by the hospitality, warmth and generosity of our hosts Lea and Onello and we would recommend Il Grappolo & Abruzzo itself to anyone who wishes to go on a relaxing holiday to a charming and culture slice of Italy. All in all, we had a fantastic holiday, thank you for everything. ” Ziba, Harrow
 
“Il Grappolo is absolutely ideal for a large family group with children – a safe pool, lots of animals and a charming welcome from the owners, who went out of their way to assist us. We would recommend a stay very highly. ” Nadia, Enfield
 
“The owners of Il Grappolo were so very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go back. ” Mary, Nova Scotia, Canada

Rooms

Il Grappolo’s simple apartments are in four former farm buildings – La Torretta, the old tower; Le Scuderie, the stables; La Cantina, the wine storage barn; and La Casa Colonica, the farmhouse. Lea has given her apartments a rural traditional feel, with a real country style. Period furniture, painted pine, iron framed beds, mix with ginghams, plaids and flowery chinzy fabrics. Some apartments have characterful stone floors and original wooden beams, whilst others are a bit more modern.

La Torretta, two-bedroomed apartment (sleeps 4/6)

On the raised ground floor of the tower, this is a delightful two-bedroomed apartment, with characterful stone floors and original wooden beams, and is decorated in a traditional rustic style. It comprises spacious living room/kitchen, with a double sofa-bed; a good sized shower room; one double bedroom; one simple double/twin bedroom, accessed by either separate, external door, or by connecting internal door, from the other double bedroom. Seating area, outside the apartment, in garden.

Casa di Dante, two-bedroom apartment (sleeps 4/6)

This is a beautiful apartment, on the first floor of the barn, decorated in a traditional rustic style. It comprises dining room with double sofa-bed, and well-equipped kitchen area, with dishwasher; one double bedroom; one double/twin bedroom, with en-suite shower room and ‘loo with a view’ (!); separate shower room; large, private terrace with lovely views over the vineyards.

The Stable Block, with three one-bedroomed apartments (Bilocale) (each sleeps 2/4)

These are slightly more simply furnished, but equally pleasing, and comprise small shower room; living room, with two extra single beds, one of which is a sofa, when not used as bed, and simple kitchen corner; open staircase leading to the upstairs double bedroom. Note that, in two of these apartments, the bed is a double, but in the other apartment, the beds are two singles.

The Farmhouse, with two studio apartments (each sleeps 2) and a two bedroom apartment (sleeps 4)

More modern, in feel, these are all on the upper floor and are accessed by an external staircase. Two of the apartments interconnect to make a two-bedroomed apartment. All have a very small kitchen corner in the living/bedroom, which can, inventively, be hidden away, so that it is less obtrusive; modern shower room. Note that, in three of these apartments, the bed is a double, but in the other apartment, the beds are two singles.

All apartments in the stables and farmhouse have shared terrace areas.
