*****Sorry, we can't do any direct exchanges at the moment but we are open to points swaps for the dates marked as available on our calendar*****

Villa Masseria Benedetto was an old, crumbling masseria(farmhouse), in Montenero di Bisaccia. My husband and I fell in love with it and bought it in 2010.
On the top floor, the masseria originally housed a couple of livestock workers and their families, with a large cowshed on the ground floor and an annex housing a herd of sheep and a large wood fired oven. Externally, we faithfully rebuilt most of the Masseria but we opted for a brighter, modern and spacious interior.
The villa has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, runs entirely on solar energy and has spectacular views towards the Maiella Mountains and the Adriatic sea. We live in Milan, but thanks to the usually good Molise weather, we spend as much time at the masseria as we can....all year round!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Molise is a beautiful region that remains largely undiscovered by mainstream tourism. The landscape is dotted with little hilltop towns, the Apennine mountains giving way to gentle rolling hills that culminate in long sandy beaches and pristine sea. Conserving age-old traditions, this mainly agricultural region offers visitors an authentic taste of Italy without the crowds.

The town of Montenero di Bisaccia.
The territory of Montenero di Bisaccia has its own beach and sits on the Abruzzo/Molise border, an excellent position from which to explore both regions. The town gets it's name from the ancient town of Bisaccia, at the foot of the hill it now dominates. Once covered with thick forests, the inhabitants of Bisaccia fled here during the Barbaric invasions.
The hills behind make an interesting drive with little towns where one will always find somewhere to have a meal or just sit and have a drink in some little square or other. During the summer, the main towns have an impressive amount of free events on and you can usually get a list of these at the town hall or on the Internet. Don't miss the many local sagras(festas), there's always one on in some town or other.
