Unforgetable Experience at Abbacca-la
Submitted: April 24, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
Myself, my daughter, my husband and my friend went to Abbacca-la as part of a tour in Italy. We came from Assisi, which was beautiful, so were already a little disappointing to have to leave for our next destination. The experience proved to be well worth the trip!
Driving up to the Eco Farm was beautiful, and gave us the country experience we were hoping to get on our Italian tour. The apartment we stayed in was a two story, two bedroom apartment, with plenty of room for all of us. It was cozy and had everything we needed to feel at home.
The next day we took a short ride to Pisa, which wasn't as impressive as we would have hoped, and after talking to Lella more we probably would have better enjoyed exploring nearby Lucca or some Medieval towns in the area.
We returned to the Farm for a cooking lesson with Lella, which we had planned in advance and were really looking forward to. We selected to make three courses, bruschetta, home-made pasta, and gelato. The lesson was amazing! My 4 year old daughter had a great time, and Lella made it really fun for her while teaching us at the same time. We used fresh organic ingredients and olive oil produced right on the farm.
The meal was incredible, the pasta was fettuccine with a mushroom cream sauce, and I've never tasted pasta so good. The lesson was easy (at least it looked easy watching Lella) and fun and I can't wait to replicate it at home.
Lella speaks English very well and was able to give us a lot of information about Italy and the area. We wished we could have stayed longer, and want to return again in the future. I highly recommend a stay at Abbacca-la!
