Bottom Line

The 11-room Agriturismo Montupoli is a charming, two-and-a-half-pearl farmhouse hotel situated in a beautiful rural setting in the Abruzzo countryside, 25-minutes outside of Chieti. Homey, rustic rooms have ensuite bathrooms, and some have private kitchens and terraces with superb hillside views. However, there is no air-conditioning and linens are changed by request only. A delightful, seasonal pool as well as an on-site restaurant with local dishes and wine are the major highlights for guests, and guests can partake in classic agritourism activities like picking grapes and olives. Travelers seeking something closer to attractions may want to consider the beachfront Hotel Baltic, which features a more modern style and a wellness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

Agriturismo Montupoli


A traditional, rustic farmhouse with a homey and inviting atmosphere

Built in 1950, this family-run hotel is crafted from gray Majella mountain stone and has the inviting atmosphere of an authentic Italian home. As the name suggests, the hotel provides opportunities to pick grapes and olives, or explore the area on horseback. A traditional, rustic style permeates the cozy interiors, with pebble tile floors, antique farm tools, and wine bottles throughout. Pops of color like blue tablecloths in the restaurant or bright plaid ones in the breakfast room, as well as traditional artwork, help to offset the neutral tones. An outdoor terrace that wraps around the hotel has hammocks and seating as well as wonderful hillside views. Guests are mostly families and couples looking for an authentic Italian stay outside of the city.

Isolated in the countryside, a 25-minute drive to Chieti

The Agriturismo Montupoli is located in the Abruzzo countryside in an isolated area surrounded by green, rolling hills. Miglianico, the closest town, is a five-minute drive, while the coastal town of Francavilla al Mare is a 20-minute drive. Popular destinations such as Pescara Harbor, Riccio Beach, and Ortona are a 25-minute drive, as is the closest city, Chieti. Abruzzo Airport and the train station are within a 35-minute drive, so is Montesilvano Beach. The hotel is a little more than an hour's drive to Majella National Park, with gorgeous meadows and mountains. Bus service runs from the Pescara bus terminal to the hotel, however most guests need a rental car to reach tourist spots.

Homey, simple rooms with en-suite bathrooms, but no air-conditioning

Individually decorated rooms all have a rustic, traditional style with bright accents that can include artwork, colorful sheets, or brightly-hued walls. Metal bed frames in many rooms are paired with antique-style dark wood furniture, plus some rooms have fireplaces. These are simple rooms, though, and while most have flat-screen TVs, some have old tube-style TVs and there is no air-conditioning. The Family Suite has a private kitchen and a terrace with marvelous landscape views. Linens are changed only by request. Bathrooms are small and basic, equipped with showers, hairdryers, and toiletries, plus some have bidets.
