Description of Il Gelso property : This house is part of the property IL GELSO a certified organic farm. The name comes from a wonderful mulberry tree, which was planted here many centuries ago. Local people used to call it the fairy tree. IL GELSO is 125 metres above sea level and at 3 km from the coastline.
From more than five generations our family has run this farm. Thanks to a south - east aspect and the limestone nature of the soil, the place is excellent to grow vines and olives trees. We became members of the Italian Association for Organic Agriculture, A.I.A.B., in 1993. A.I.A.B. is an internationally recognised organisation associated with I.F.O.A.M. (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements). Today, we produce and sell organic wines (I.G.T. and D.O.C.) and extra-virgin olive oil with an A.I.A.B. guarantee mark, certified by I.C.E.A.
Just 3 km from the farm, you can relax on the beaches of the Abruzzo coast, with its array of small bays and sandy shorelines.
The coast at San Vito Chietino and the neighbouring village of Rocca San Giovanni is known as the costa dei Trabocchi, famous for its characteristic fishing huts built on piles, built in the 17th century and still in use to this day. The sea in this area is so pristine and crystal clear that for several years both villages have earned the coveted Blue Flag award from Legambiente (the biggest Italian environmental organisation).
The Abruzzo National Park is about an hour’s drive along an excellent wide dual carriageway.
Lovers of history and architectural beauty will enjoy Lanciano, the ancient Roman city of Anxanum, regarded as one of the most interesting sites in Abruzzo and located just 10 km from San Vito Chietino. Other sites not to be missed are the castle at Roccascalegna and the abbey of San Giovanni in Venere founded in the 8th century.
