Altrocanto is located in the strong and gentle land of the Abruzzo, in the remote village of Farindola, at the feet of a majestic mountain. Far from crowds, from chaos, and from indiscreet eyes, Altrocanto is our long sought dream, finally realized, with love and attention.
This is the home town of my grandfather, Vincenzo, and my grandmother Irma, who grew up here, and when they got older, they moved to Pescara to be closer to my parents. He lived in this house until 2004. Me and my partner took it over in 2012.
This is a place of calm, slow days, lost time found again, reading; a place for the rediscovery of your tastebuds; and a starting place for joyful daytrips, cultural visits and silent pilgrimages.
We are pleased to host you in five rooms, all differently decorated, and all with private bathrooms. One room is wheelchair-accessible.
Our guests may take advantage of our garden, our reading corner, the living room with a fireplace, a library, free internet wifi, and free tea and coffee.
Altrocanto is located in a building constructed at the beginning of the 20th century as a brick factory, then converted into a private house in the 1920s.
The restoration has preserved the original structure, adding space to the rear of the facility and a new wood roof. Wood, stone, and bricks are the only materials used for roof, floor, windows, doors, and decorations. Primer and paint are natural pigment-based and without chemical solvents. Wood surfaces have been treated only with natural bee’s wax and linen oil.
The house is provided with solar cells for the production of electricity and hot water; the house is heated by a boiler which burns waste produced by neighboring olive oil presses. Rainwater is gathered and used for the garden. We practice recycling and composting.

mi piacciono la tranquillità, un libro e una tazza di tè, un caminetto acceso, un piatto di pasta, un viaggio da solo, un viaggio in compagnia, la musica di sottofondo, il silenzio di quando nevica, la pioggia sul tetto, le campane di notte...
