Marina Colonna’s country house can be found nestling in the Molise hills that roll gently down to the Italian Adriatic coast. Surrounded by sunflower, wheat and tomato fields and with ancient olive groves the estate has been producing high quality, extra virgin olive oil for many decades.
This newly renovated ground floor guest flat opens onto a sunny patio and gardens. It has two bedrooms, one large double and one twin, with a bathroom created out of local stone. The vaulted lounge with its original fireplace is decorated with antique furnishings and has a wide arch leading into a generous, modern kitchen and dining area, brightly lit by skylights. The flat is self-catering, however breakfast, lunch or dinner can be provided on request.
During the estate’s olive harvest, guests can even return home with oil produced from their own efforts in the olive groves!
The estate also organises its own oil tasting events, and can arrange with advanced notice, cooking classes and a range of creative activities like photography, drawing, painting, ceramics and individual sessions of yoga. Our spacious conference room is also available for teachers & practitioners who wish to organise their own courses.
An authentic “Molise experience” is just waiting to be discovered, with a relaxing, peaceful stay in the comfort of this historic family’s country residence.
“We enjoyed our stay very much, very beautiful, calm and relaxing. The services provided were excellent.” Jorgen. Denmark.
Guests have independant access to their own private appartment, they also have access to the patio and gardens.
Staff will be on hand to assist guests. Marina Colonna, the owner of the property, will at times be present.
Si ha come l’impressione di un viaggio a ritroso nel tempo, quando si percorrono le strade immerse nel verde che attraversano la terra molisana: profuma di antico l’atmosfera rarefatta, le colline dalle linee dolci, la luce dorata fra gli ulivi e i campi di grano.
Il protagonista d’eccellenza è l’ulivo, che caratterizza il paesaggio e la storia di questa terra. Qui nasce l’olio profumato da Marina Colonna, che dal 1996 è alla guida dell’azienda agricola ereditata dal padre, don Francesco Colonna.
Its like a journey back in time… travelling along old roads buried deep in Molise’s green hills with their rarefied air and ancient ambiance; here in this gently undulating countryside where the golden light plays on patches of silver-green olive trees and fields of yellow wheat. The olive tree plays the leading role on this stage, both in the scenery and in the history of the land.
And it is here on the farm she inherited from her father, don Francesco Colonna in 1996 that Marina Colonna’s extra virgin olive oil came to life.
