About Lorenzo de Pompeis
(It is the donkey speaking, right in the picture ... !) My owner is named Lorenzo, 52 years old and is a sociologist, but he chose to devote his energy to keep alive the house of his family estate, because he believes that in the TRADITION there is the FUTURE! Fortunately, it has a nice family with two sweet little girls who also love nature and animals. Me and my owners really love our land and we will help you with pleasure to discover the wonders of Abruzzo !
Why Lorenzo de Pompeis chose Tocco Da Casauria
The country house is owned by Lorenzo s family since the end of 1.600 and perfectly preserves the original structure and many of the old furniture. Is managed directly by the owners for almost 40 years. All apartments are self-contained, with their own kitchenette, entrance and private garden or panoramic terrace. They are surrounded by sunny lawns, large grounds with Mediterranean plants and original archaeological remains of the area itself. Very good is the geographical location and road connection: just below the mountains of the two National Parks of Majella and Gran Sasso, only 30 minutes from the beaches and from the Pescara airport (with low cost flights), very close to picturesque historic centers and only 1.5 hours away from Rome (even with direct buses - stop at 1 km)
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The private gardens surrounding all apartments allow you to enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun or dine by candlelight nicely, maybe cooking on the barbeque outside. The outdoor areas are taken care of to make life as pleasant as possible outside, although rental properties are spacious and equipped with all comforts. In the morning you can choose with extreme ease if you like to conquer the high peaks of the nearby mountains (3,000 meters high), or decide instead to dive into the blue of the nearby and comfortable beaches, or simply relax by the pool while enjoying the view of the mountains, maybe sipping a fine wine from our wine cellar. Who wants to relax can also enjoy the shade of the pine woods adjacent to the solarium equipped with deckchairs, sun loungers and hammocks and let the kids have fun surrounded by our loving animals (dogs, cats, donkeys, goats, chickens, etc.. ), which often roam freely in the meadows around the house looking for caresses.

Because of its geographical and road position the farm holidays is an ideal place for the visit of the whole Abruzzo - the 'Green Zone of Europe' - and of its 4 famous National Parks. In the nearby you can visit medieval villages, abbeys, castles and hermitages, all surrounded by nature and wildness, as well as traditions and folklore.
In 30 minutes you can reach the city of Pescara with its long sandy beaches and its international airport served by a wide choise of low cost and regular airlines; to reach Rome it takes about 1,5 hours (direct bus possible in 2 h. time - 2 km. for the stop). Golf 25 min.
The farmhouse is in a valley which divides 2 mountains: the National Park of Majella from the National Park of Gran Sasso; 200 metres on the sea level, 3 kilometres faraway from the nearest village and 10km from the Hospital.
To reach us take the A 25 (Pescara - Rome) motorway exiting at toll-gate 'Torre de' Passeri' and follow the detailed map you will receive once booked. GPS: N 42° 13' 40'' - E 13° 55' 29'' (TomTom - 'TeleAtlas' maps).
Other Activities: thermal bath, canoeing, parapenting, horse and donkey riding, ping pong,
Golf: There are about 30 minutes drive from 'Miglianico Golf Club', located in the province of Chieti, in the hills of Miglianico a height of about 125 meters. One hundred and fifty acres in the green, the Miglianico Golf Club is an environment designed to fit a family sporting and dynamic. A wonderful green oasis surrounded by woods and vineyards. The 18-hole championship course has a par 71 and a length of 6043.
Is the site of competitions for professional and amateur players. The competitions organized by the Club in the course of each season are around 50. But one of the main features of the Club is that it can be attended by those who are not members or tourists, and even occasionally.
The course was designed by one of the most famous American golf architect Ronald Kirby. The technical characteristics of Miglianico Golf Club are very interesting view of the personality of the entire route on canonical 18 holes that wind through forests, vineyards and artificial bunkers. The holes, by both professionals and amateurs, are technical, challenging but also fun.
We are also about 15 minutes drive from the Golf Club Arcobaleno which is located in Alanno: a 9-hole for pitch and path.
Ski: We are about 50 minutes drive from Roccaraso (in the province of L'Aquila), which offers very modern ski lifts and more than 100 km of alpine ski slopes and 170 km of cross country skiing! It is, therefore, the largest area of all Italy south-central and seventh nationally for overall qualità. Possibility to rent the equipment on site.
We are also about 50 minutes by car from Passo Lanciano - Maielletta (m. 1305 to 2100) in the province of Chieti, one of the places where, thanks to the extreme proximity to the humid winds of the coast, it snows more. Spectacular feature is that, when the weather is particularly nice, skiing, you can see the sea! But there are only 18 km of alpine ski slopes and 15 km of cross country skiing. Can rent the equipment on site.
Besides these two places nearer, not far from us there are many other ski areas.
