On a driving holiday through Italy. Stopped for two nights, while attending a family wedding in Larino, so the location was perfect for us. The views a delight, a relaxing environment and very clean and comfortable room with air conditioning to cool away the very hot weather. Family run business and winery, making lovely award winning wines. We were welcomed by the owner, who was charming and made you feel like one of the family. As we were driving, it was good to have parking and the feeling of being very relaxed. Great value.
This Agriturismo has so much more to offer. The owners have not realised its full potential. Set in a lovely surrounding with views over sunflower fields and vineyards it would appeal ideal. Rooms appear to have been decorated by a man in typical italian country style. Best room is the one with the balcony overlooking the fields. The towels were small and threadbare and didn't match; they seemed to be very old!. Bedroom and bathroom OK, TV was something from Noah's Ark. The meal in the evening was nice, smallest antipasta we have ever had in Italy, pasta very tasty and the wine from their vineyard was excellent. Service was slow and interestingly we were second to arrive but served last out of 3 groups of guests. Breakfast was non existent or if it was it didn't look too good; a small coffee percolator and a croissant in a plastic wrapper (similar to what you get at service stations). On the weekend breakfast was going to be served from 0900 onwards. I'm sorry but we left at 0800 in the morning! The owners (whose priority is obviously the wine making etc) appear to do the B&B part as a hobby and not very well at that. When we arrived we were shown our room and that was it. They had nice seating outside but no-one came to offer a drink or stuzzicine (which we would having willingly bought). A bit more interest in the guests would go a long way. The photos on booking.com are misleading no way did the food look like that. We just felt a little more effort would of been nice; as for breakfast (on a agriturismo which I would have thought was ideal) not a chance! The positive is that they do sell very drinkable wine.…
Dolci Grappoli is a small family run hotel which is also a private winery. Located approximately 1,5km from Larino a little out of the way for my visit. Accommodation is divided between main buiding and annex. Rooms are spacious with either single or double bed with en suite bathroom. Room and bathroom are clean and tidy, however during my stay the room I occupied was damp and paint was peeling from walls. Towels are provided but not changed regularly as is bedding There is no room service or amenities in rooms however a coffee machine and small fridge are available in rest area in corridor. Breakfast is not provided but a small croissant type bun and some fruit juice are placed in rest area for guests. The restaurant within hotel provides good traditional italian style food, with the pasta being recommended. Unfortunately menu is limited and service a little slow at times, beverages limited to water, coffee or wine. This place is probably ideal for a short visit and wine likers especially during wine season.…
In August 2011, I had my fourth business trip to Termoli, Italy, a city on the East coast with nice beaches facing the Adriatic Sea and over-crowed with tourists every August - the vacation month for the Italians. For the first half of my trip, I stayed in a hotel in the center of Termoli. It was very stressful when I returned to the hotel from work every day - driving in circles in streets packed with cars and people, often parked far away and had to walk back to the tiny hotel room. An Italian associate at work took me to the restaurant of this place called “I Dolci Grappoli” in a near-by town, Larino. After enjoying a really nice dinner of Italian home-cooking, I was so glad to find out that the place had rooms available for less than half of what I paid in Termoli. For the second half of my trip, I stayed there and it turned out to be my most pleasant stay in Italy. Below are some highlights of the place: Name of the place: Agriturismo “I Dolci Grappoli” Per Google Translate, Agriturismo means “Farm Holidays”. Agricultural tourism seems quite popular in Italy. I Dolci Grappoli means “The Sweet Grapes”. The Agriturismo is run by the D’Uva family. The whole family work there along with a few other employees. It is a compound that includes buildings for the accommodations, a restaurant (named Cantine D’Uva), and a brewery. It is located on a small hill, overlooking the valley below, surrounded by vineyards and farm fields. Parking was free and plenty of spaces in the compound. Every September, the grapes from nearby vineyards will be harvested to make wine. The D’Uva family made red, white, and desert wine. I know very little about wine and seldom drink wine. But I ended up having their wine with every dinner in their restaurant and I liked it. I even bought a couple bottle back to US. My room was quite a nice side room with 3 single beds in it. Room was very basic, nothing fancy, including a bathroom with a good size shower. There was a TV in the room, but no desk or telephone. Mobile phone still worked. Surprisingly, there were a couple of wireless routers that I could tap into without any password. I used my work computer with VPN and my iPhone to access Internet with good connectivity. The place has a garden adjacent to the buildings from where fresh products are picked for making meals. They did my laundry on the premises, same day service, as compared to 2-3 days in other places. Breakfast was included, but was very simple. I was served with a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. I could choose café latte, cappuccino, or espresso. I had no problem to ask for a second serving of coffee one time. Besides breakfast, they serve lunch and dinner as well. Me, and my other colleague who also stayed there, only had time for dinners there. Dinners usually included appetizer(s), a pasta plate, some vegetables, a meat dish, and a desert. The meals served were pretty much set menus. We never ordered for dinner, just took whatever they brought to the table. We ordered wine for every meal though, sometimes even desert wine. The restaurant did not stock a large variety of food. But they prepared their dishes based on ingredients that were available at the season, with variations in how the ingredients were mixed together. I loved the fresh and healthy home-cooking, and could eat the same food every day. I also enjoyed the hospitality. I did not speak English and the staff in the Agriturismo only spoke very little English. But we managed to communicate quite well. With the WI-FI, I sometime used my iPhone App, Google Translate, to help with the communication. We could have dinner at Termoli, which is only 30-minute drive away. In fact, we saw some families drove to Termoli, spent the day at the beach, and returned to Cantine D’Uva for dinner. But we rather stayed away from the crowd in Termoli and stay with the tranquility of the countryside. If I ever take my family to Central Italy for vacation, I would definitely return to “I Dolci Grappoli”.…
