With an agriturismo there's usually a farm of course.
In the case of the Agriturismo "Il Carpino & l'Orniello", the accommodation and the farm are quite separate. In this case the accommodation is in the hills above Ascoli with all the benefits of greenery and fresh air. The farm is at Contrada Vallecupa, down in the valley close to Ascoli Piceno. The farm is mostly vineyards, an olive grove, a large vegetable garden and not least a truffle ground.
The agriculture on the farm is totally organic and approved by the Mediterranean Institute of Certification (IMC).
The owner is Roberto Bruni, a young family man also agronomist, entomologist and lecturer on viticulture (grape growing) and oenology (the techniques and science of wine making). Roberto with his wife run the agriturismo.
Roberto can, upon request organize wine tasting and guided tours to the most important wine and gastronomic food locations in the zone.
We apologize for the picture quality. Photos were taken in adverse conditions and will be replaced in early summer. In the meantime, although not doing justice to the property we hope they convey a good impression of the good things in store.
