This beautiful plateau offers a variety of diverse landscapes. From the end of April until the beginning of November, many cows and horses roam freely here. We can walk alongside the herds or even ride among them.

Another unique place is the Magic Forest. This woodland of ancient beeches and pines is situated on a hilltop completely surrounded by rocks, with only two access routes, making the visit very enchanting.

As a qualified riding guide, my heart has been beating for our ranch with 20 horses and trail riding in Altomolise and Abruzzo since 2016. Together with Carmine as a trail guide, we organize 6 different trails and a stationary program. Our 2 dogs come with us on all trail rides and, along with the horses, are part of the family. Carmine has been riding 2000km per year for over 30 years and knows the untouched area like the back of her hand.
