Centuries old olive trees are waiting here to greet visitors, ready to accompany them along the ancient tratturi
paths bathed in sunlight where one day seems the same as the next, but the towns and villages are all unique and different and each one offers its own hospitality, conversation, food, cooking and color.
THE BUONANOTTE DISTRICT
Among the hills of Vasto, in our own slice of paradise, is La Selvotta farming estate.
Start with a walk through the centuries old olive trees before visiting the estate’s olive press where you observe the different phases of oil preparation and the modern gathering and processesing techniques that transform the olives just hours after being harvested. This results in delicious oils rich in fragrances and beneficial properties.
SAN MARTINO IN PENSILIS
Moving south to where the hills and sea meet among one of a kind colors we find the Marina Colonna estate. Visit the olive press and stay for lunch for dishes rigorously prepared with the most prestigious Colonna extra virgin olive oil. It is also a change to visit and get the feel of a rural home. The day can be customized to your taste with a stroll around the estate or perhaps with a cooking class on the best traditional Molisana cuisine.
The history and art of Termoli combine the memory of many different ethnicities. The Borgo Vecchio, or old city, stands atop a promontory jutting out into the sea, and looks like a citadel. At the bottom of the city walls there is the Passeggiata dei Trabucchi path with ancient and impressive pier like structures for fishing. There you can admire the spectacular sunsets on warm summer evenings.
