FARMHOUSE AND AGRITOURISM IN MOLISE

An area that was traditionally made up of shepherds and farmers, Molise still has not fully developed its tourist potential and it remains as one of the most hidden and least known areas. In truth Molise offers a great deal for tourists looking for an old-fashioned lifestyle: clear seas, beautiful nature and thousands of years of history.

For those desiring an out of the ordinary vacation and those who are not afraid of new experiences, Molise is a treasure chest waiting to be opened, offering a refuge of tranquillity. One of the charms lies in the rich mountain and shepherd traditions, in the thick forests that are well preserved offering family-style rustic hospitality. Visiting Molise is above all a chance to discover farm traditions which are evident and predominate in the area. In the Trigno valley and Volturno we advise visiting Pescolanciano with the Castle of Alexander, Pietrabbondante, a characteristic locale on a 1027 m. hilltop. Agnone is known for its historical bell factories and Capracotta is one of the hills situated in the highest tops of the whole Apennine chain. In Matese, which is in the Campobasso province, visit Campitello Matese, equipped with winter sports facilities and Bojano, the homeland of mozzarella. If you continue south to Termoli you won’t want to miss seeing the castle of the twelfth century and the cathedral of San Basso, which is from the same period.
