We are purchasing a home in the Chieti region of Abruzzo. It comes with about 20+ acres of scrub farmland. Nothing is growing on it now but weeds and scrub brush. What would it take to obtain a declaration of an Agritourismo on this land?
Pacentro is a village of the province of L'Aquila, in Abruzzo. It is a well-preserved historic medieval village located in the central part of Italy, several kilometers from the City of Sulmona. Pacentro has been nominated as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The village lies in the Apennine Mountain Range on a plateau consisting of small hills 650 meters (2,133 ft) above sea level. The castle sits on one hill (Colle Castello) at one end of town and the other hill (Colle San Marco) is where the old Church of S. Marco used to sit. Pacentro is part of the Majella National Park and is renowned for its springs and fresh mountain water that comes from the snow of the Majella. In Pacentro, artistic handicraft boasts a centuries-old tradition: the working of white stone from the Maiella, small terracotta figurines for cribs, crochet work and the Abruzzi women's’ traditional costumes.
