The Abbey of Casamari

Step back in time to the mesmerizing  sounds of gregorian chants in this gothic abbey. The Abbey was built to avoid distraction and ostentation but in it's simplicity the Abbey is a beautiful sight. Delicate columns, vaulted ceilings and a pretty cloistered courtyard. A truly memorable experience.

Abbey of Montecassino

Despite being destroyed in the Second World War by allied troops, the worlds most glorious abbey still stands proud on the hill which dominates Cassino and the Gariglian valley. Rebuilt after the war, to this day it remains the centre of historic culture in Italy.  St. Benedict founded the Abbey in 529AD on what was once a pagan site. Here he wrote the Benedictine rule that became the founding principle for Western Monasticism. Today visitors enjoy the glorious ornate interior, and spend hours walking around the courtyard and gardens, with beautiful white doves in the peace garden and spectacular views from the balcony.

Casa Lawrence

A great place to visit especially for anyone who loves literature, nestled in the Comino Valley between Lazio, Abruzzo and Molise, it is one of the most beautiful ecosystems of the Apennines. Writer DH Lawrence, was invited to stay here in the 1900's by Orazio Cervi, an artists model from Picinisco, where he had built a Victorian style villa. In December 1919 Lawrence arrived with his wife to the mountain village. During this brief but intense interlude he revisited the novel he was working on The Lost Girl’ in the last three chapters he wrote in detail of this place. Today the house is owned by the Pacitti family have devoted almost 200 years to goat and sheep farming. Intrigued by the history of the house, they decided to open an agritourism taking inspiration for the interiors from details of Lawrence's novels.
