Meeting with alpacas
Together we will make this unique experience happen First you will be informed about our natural dealing with these special animals. Then we put the theory into practice and make a beautiful walk with the alpaca herd. You will see our olive trees and tipical mountain ridges, called calanchi. It takes about 1 hour. We finish close to the house, where we enjoy a drink with homemade cake in the garden. And I will show the woolproducts I have made. Other things to note Google Maps: Abruzzovakantie. Its not the agriturismo Colle Tripio! Stay on the main road Guardiagrele to Castel Frentano, until you see a white sign "CRETONI". Take this exit and at the end there is a white house.

Abruzzese cuisine with grandmother Amelia
Arrived at our home, between the chirping of birds and the scent of the surrounding vegetation, admiring the Gran Sasso massif that watches over the horizon, after welcoming our guests perhaps with a welcome drink specially created by my mother and my grandmother, we will start with the story and the preparation of a typical dish of the Teramana culinary tradition. As an example I will bring the so-called 'virtues', an ancient dish made up of fresh and dry pasta with different shapes and colors, legumes, vegetables and meat. This dish was cooked in ancient times by bringing together all that was left at the end of the winter season, so as not to throw anything away. Each ingredient must be cooked individually and at the end of the preparations it will be united all together. It will be fun to spread different types of handmade pasta, with different doughs and colors and especially at the end of the work, to taste what has been cooked, all together, in the garden, enjoying that sense of peace that only the countryside can transmit. All this, telling guests about the ancient preparations, the used tools, often handmade and very dated, we will go around the countryside showing them our vegetable garden, our olive grove where we produce oil, ancient techniques of food preservation and our whole fantastic world, made of simplicity
