The guest rooms are in an old traditional stone house that has two beautiful terraces with views of the mountains and the valley. The house is in a very small Italian village; you will be immersed in a kind of Italian lifestyle that you can only see in the quiet, non-touristy countryside. You will see neighbors walking by tending to their vineyards and olive groves or ambling through the fields with their sheep. Many of them work without any machinery and use traditional ways of farming.

At the guest house, there is a variety of accommodation options to satisfy all manner of tastes and requirements. For travelers on a tight budget, simple private rooms with shared outside bathrooms are available. For people that prefer to have a private bathroom, the newly restored en-suite rooms can be offered.

There is a grocery store close to the house (within five minutes walking distance), where you can buy most basic food supplies; this makes cooking very convenient. You do not have to go to restaurants every day. Guest are welcome to hang out in the common room any time of the day and have unlimited access to WI-FI. The venue has two charming terraces with sun loungers to relax outside under the walnut tree and enjoy the mountain views. In addition, apartment units can be offered that consist of bedrooms, bathrooms, and fully equipped private kitchens.

The place is quiet and authentic and it will be ideal after you have been travelling through big touristy cities. It allows you to experience the beautiful Italian countryside and really relax in a safe community.

Free Wi-Fi is available in the communal area of the guesthouse. Some rooms also have Wi-Fi. If you need a room with Wi-Fi during your stay, please let Italycountrystay know in advance and they will do their best to accommodate you, depending on availability.

En suite rooms

"La vigna" (the vineyard) was restored in 2010; it is a spacious room that can host up to five people. In this room, many of the original elements were kept, such as the hand-carved shelf in the wall and the beautiful wall designs. The bathroom window has a pretty view on the garden and the mountains behind. The doorway to the room is delightfully cloaked by the foliage of an old grapevine. Even in the hot summer months, the lime stone walls keep the room comfortably cool. The room is 2.8 meters high and 20 square meters big.

"Il castello" (the castle) was restored in 2013 and is slightly smaller than La Vigna. It is also provided with an en suite bathroom and a balcony, and can host up to four people. The ceiling in this room is slightly lower than in the others (2.2 meters). In this room, the old plaster has been removed from the walls and uncovered the fabulous lime stone walls that keep the room comfortably cool. Together with all the wooden elements, they give this room a special touch.

Private rooms with shared bathrooms

The private rooms with shared bathrooms are very quaint, yet spacious. Five people can comfortably fit in one room. They each have fantastic mountain views. The bathroom is just around the corner outside the room and is usually shared by two bedrooms; please note that the ceiling of the communal bathroom is very low (two meters).

During this retreat, your will identify with the ideas of slow travel movement and enjoy a vacation during which you will be immersed in nature and authentic Italian lifestyle. You will also join classical Hatha yoga classes and delve deep into asana and sun salutations.

Via Piana is located just down the hill from the small village of Pescosolido, at the foot of the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park. The area around the guest house is one of the most strikingly beautiful places in Italy, featuring mountains, waterfalls, hiking trails, lakes, wildlife, and many interesting ruins, churches, castles, and abbeys. Unlike other beautiful areas in Italy, this one isn't filled with tourists.

The location gives you the best of both worlds: staying in the peaceful countryside and waking up to birds singing without sacrificing the advantages of being close to a town. Sora is a bigger town (with approximately 35000 inhabitants) that has lots to offer in terms of restaurants, gelaterias, coffee shops, bars, and shopping. It is easily accessible on foot or by bus. There is a beautiful river that runs through the town and a historic center where you can wander around.

    Good yoga, Good food, Good rooms, nice terras,nice people

    CONS Cons: The place is somewhat remote and I didn't have a car. Luckely Curtis, Hannah and Ruben did have one and were so nice to give me sometimes a lift.

    PROS Pros: The yoga lessons in the morning were very good. Nice breakfast and diner on the terrace. I also liked the hike to the waterfall, but also to Pescosolido. Also all the other gasts that stayed at Anna's were so nice, this made it a special experience for me.

    Review by Sinja Brauns from Germany

    CONS Cons: I got a lot of mosquito bites :D. Don't be naive like me and bring the best mosquito spray you can find.

    PROS Pros: My stay at via piana was just beautiful. Started with a beautiful place right in nature, amazing food (Anna is cooking/baking everything by herself and uses local and super fresh ingredients) and beautiful people from in- and outside. You should definitely go there to get into that magical peaceful mood! I will come back for sure! Especially I couldn't say goodbye to Anna :)!

    CONS Cons: It would be amazing to have a fan or similar in the rooms as the heat can be intense at night. A mosquito net would also be a welcome addition.

    PROS Pros: Ana was extremely kind and welcoming and Anneli's yoga classes were excellent. Ana's home cooked food and homemade wine were delicious! A really relaxing place to be.

    Review by Stefanie Breuning from Germany

    PROS Pros: Italy countrystay ist ein perfekter Ort um Ruhe und neue Energie zu tanken. Der idyllische Ort zwischen Olivenbäumen,Weinreben und Wiesen ist ideal für alle Naturliebhaber und Individualreisende. Die Unterkunft liegt am Hang. Von hier hat man einen wunderbaren Ausblick ins Tal. Die Zimmer sind ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und sauber. Der Yogaunterricht wird von ausgebildeten Lehrern gehalten. Der Unterrichtsinhalt richtet sich nach den Bedürfnissen der Teilnehmer und findet in Kleingruppen statt, daher ist die individuelle Betreuung hervorragend. Die Gastgeberin ist eine ausgezeichnete Köchin, die jeden Abend mit Ihren aufwendig und liebevoll zubereiteten Speisen Ihre Gäste verzaubert. Warum es so gut schmeckt liegt nicht zuletzt daran, dass die Speisen ausschließlich aus regionalen Produkten von Bauern aus der Umgebung und aus biologischen Erzeugnissen stammen. Die unberührte Umgebung lädt zu Wanderungen ein. Auf Anfrage steht ein Vielfältiges Programm zur Verfügung, z.B. ein Besuch in der heimischen Käserei, eine geführte Walking Meditation etc. Ein großes Dank an die Gastgeberin und die vielen lieben Menschen Vorort.

    "The Italy Country Stay at Via Piana is simply amazing! The house and the surroundings are beautiful and Anna is a great host. I was at Via Piana for one week for the yoga retreat and had a magical time there. My room was really pretty and very clean. The common kitchen is very nice and you have all the amenities needed. Usually I used to sit with other guests for breakfast and lunch at the big table or outside under the grapevine and in the evening Anna cooked for us and we had the most amazing dinners together, since Anna is a fantastic cook. The yoga classes were also great, especially with Martina, who is one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. Besides, they offer a lot of great activities. I went horseback riding with Antonello at a nearby ranch and it was very beautiful, especially the ride through the river was really special. You could also take beautiful hikes around Pescosolido or beautiful Sora. If you love walking, it is maybe everything you’re looking for in a nice, peaceful and quiet vacation. All together I can only find the best compliments to describe my stay at Via Piana and I cannot thank everybody (especially Anna and Martina) enough for making my stay amazing and for being the great people that they are!"

    "My partner and I attended the yoga retreat at Anna & Antonellos in September 2016. The location was beautiful and peaceful, the perfect setting for focusing the mind and body and practicing yoga."

    "Martina was a calm and instructive teacher who was especially helpful to my partner who had little experience of yoga. She helped guide us through the practice and was able to challenge the more able. "

    "The yoga classes were a wonderful start to the day and set you up for the day's activities. During our stay we were fortunate to take part in a vegetarian cooking class, helped make home made pasta with Martina, went horse riding and of course explored the mountains around Sora. There were also afternoon yoga classes, also taken by Martina, which were a great way to unwind at the end of the day."

    "What helped make our stay complete was meeting like minded people and talking over the dinner table. It was interesting interacting with the other guests, as well as our hosts Anna and Antonella, and of course Martina. Everyone was relaxed and approachable which made it great for socialising, especially with a glass of home made wine!"

    "I would recommend the yoga retreat to all: singles or couples, old or young, regardless of experience you will enjoy it!"

  • Review by Chris

    "Sometimes, a vacation turns into a truly amazing experience, where one feels less like a guest, more like family; staying with Anna & Antonello was exactly this. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed like old friends, spending dinner in the dining room, along with other guests and helpers, enjoying delicious homemade vegetarian dinner and lovely red wine. We actually had car troubles on our way to the property, with our poor Mini developing an exhaust issue; Anna and Giuseppe were incredibly helpful, doing everything they could to help us have the car fixed quickly – which it was! As for the room, we had a cosy ensuite double – the bathroom was clean and spacious, with a lovely shower and a properly comfortable bed (we slept so well). The surroundings are rural, rustic and peaceful – quintessential Italian countryside, with working farmland and quiet villages. It's a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy. I'd recommend staying here in a heartbeat. Our only regret? Not staying longer!"

    "Everything about this place is fantastic: 1) Anna and her Partner Antonello are great hosts. Anna is efficient, kind, communicative and offers many amazing activities (visit cheese maker, yoga, hikes, horseback riding, etc.) and she is a great cook "

    "2) the location is super--overlooking a nice town, mountains with fresh air and peace and quiet, only 1.5 by bus from Rome "

    "3) the adjacent Abruzzo National Park is stunning "

    "4) the accommodations are very clean, updated and comfortable. We loved everything about this place and hope to return soon!"

    "We absolutely loved Anna's place and her kindness. This has been one of our favorites so far. The rooms are really lovely and cool in summer, the kitchen was great to use, the terrace had an awesome view, and there were loads of extra activities (daily Yoga, Massages, Meditation, cooking classes, horse riding tours, etc..)that you could get involved in - we went horse riding which was fantastic. Thanks Anna, we'll be recommending your place to our friends!"

    "Tucked away in the Italian countryside, Via Piana is a refuge from the tourist crowds that make the larger cities feel stuffy and commercialized. Anna is an impeccable host that attended to my every need, and her kindness will make you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. The communal kitchen is clean, well-equipped, and even boasts an authentic pizza oven (which is often used to churn out savory, real-deal Naples-style flat bread). Expect tastefully furnished rooms that manage to feel rustic while maintaining modern comforts, access to fresh, delicious food, and the opportunity to enjoy the nearby national park. If you're looking for a respite and the chance to see a side of Italy most visitors never do, I highly recommend staying at Via Piana!"

    "This is our second stay in Via Piana. Last year, we stumbled upon the country stay because of the wedding of one of our friends. She married an Italian who was from the neighborhood. "

    "Luckily, Anna Gansert was not fully booked so we could stay for three nights. We loved the rustic room that we booked, good bed, good mattress, and clean. But because of the wedding, we did not get to see much of the surroundings and there are loads of activities you can do. So we decided to come back."

    "We found our way back to Via Piana very easily, this time it was by daylight and good weather. Our arrival before was by night, accompanied by heavy rains. Anna stood in the rain to pick us up; yes, we were embarrassed to let her wait up that long in that beastly weather. Neve the dog welcomed us heartily and we stayed in one of the small apartments this time instead of the rustic room; we got an upgrade. That night we dined with guests from the farm stay nearby. It was a nice group of people and dinner was excellent. "

    "We went to Lake Posta Fibreno, hiked to the waterfall of Lacerno, visited Opi, Naples and Pompeii, and climbed Monte Amaro in the Abruzzo National Park. "

    "Our stay is almost at an end, but we had a lovely holiday: active and restful with simple and nice food. Antonello's impersonation of Basil Fawlty is absolutely hilarious and unbeatable, Anna’s hospitality and their professionalism make this country and farm stay work. "

    "We wish them all the best in the world and hope that they can unfold all their plans for the future. Definitely go here if you want a taste of Italy and go off the beaten tourist track."

    "I was at Italycountrystay only for two days and it was a really good decision after visiting busy Rome. Nice people, nice surrounding, and of course good food. It is really easy to feel fine and comfortable there. Additionally, there are also many activities which can be tried out, such as horse riding, pizza baking, visiting a cheese factory, hiking, and much more."

    "When I arrived, I got the chance to try out the cool water of a pond near Sora which collects the water from little mountain streams and which also has a floating island made up of plants (I was somehow amazed of that)/ I can tell, it is really refreshing."

    "Via Piana and Pescosolido has a charming atmosphere, I am happy that I got there and I want to go back definitely to spend some more time there!"

Come spend time here, stay awhile, hike, explore the forest, visit Sora, and then settle down to an unforgettable meal. Anna's inventive style of cooking delicious and healthy seasonal dishes with local ingredients in a rustic setting makes this a place to not miss... Perfect."

    "After coming from busy Rome (two hours by bus to Sora), I really appreciate the tranquil and charming atmosphere of Via Piana. The place is in perfect harmony with nature - traditional stone houses surrounded by green "jungle" and lovely flowers."

    "My room was nice and very clean. The bed had a good mattress. The communal kitchen was very clean as well. The pizza oven, table with lavender painting, and the mountain views made it a very special place for me."

    "Anna is a great host, very friendly. I am an individual travel, but I had never felt lonely there because we spoke a lot together and had a lot of fun! As it was olive picking time, we visited the local olive press together where I was able to see all the steps of olive oil making. "

    "Anna also wrote a very nice guide about the trips in the area and she has plenty of maps, so you can really explore the area very well with car or just on foot! National Park of Abruzzo is very close, so you have endless hiking opportunities."

    "Thank you Anna for your great hospitality and hope to see you again. The rustic setting makes this a place to not miss... Perfect."

My room had stone walls and was very clean with screens on all the windows to keep out the bugs. I ate my meals at a farm a scenic 20 minutes’ walk away. Anna, the manager of the property, was incredibly helpful and friendly. Giuseppe, who ran the farm, was equally amazing. I'm a huge animal lover, and he let me feed the animals. I hope to return."

    "My friend and I stayed at Italycountrystay for two nights as part of a trip we did in Italy. The stay in Via Piana made our trip, Anna was amazing in all means and added a lot to our experience and obviously was so helpful and did much more than we expected. Via Piana is far from all the main tourist areas, what makes it so special. Anna has collected a large number of activities for us to do in the area including hikes, horseback riding, and yoga classes. My friend and i didn’t travel by car and Anna was very happy to help us find public transportation to Sora and also pick us up from the town, and if needed take us places we needed to go. Anna also helped us find good public transportation to our next stop on our trip. "

    "The place itself is to authentic, serene, and just lovely. The view is breathtaking, the rooms are clean, and the communal kitchen is spotless and comfortable. Thank you Anna for an amazing experience of both meeting you and experiencing a different side of Italy. Via Piana was amazing."

    "I went to Italycountrystay in Via Piana three years ago and liked it so much I returned this past summer when I was doing some traveling around Italy. Via Piana is easily accessible from Rome by way of a scenic bus ride that takes about two hours. Once you arrive in Sora, Anna, the sweet inn keeper, always offers to pick up guests and drive them up the hill to Via Piana (that trip is walkable, but I'd recommend driving, especially if you have luggage). "

    "Italycountrystay is a quiet retreat. The rooms are shaded and clean. The communal kitchen and common room are great for meeting other guests and talking to Anna about the area, and there are even a few outdoor tables with incredible views of the mountains. There are many hikes you can take leaving from Via Piana without needing a car. I liked hiking to the castle ruins above Sora. It's not too strenuous and it's great because the ruins aren't blocked off in at all, so you can really explore. Get gelato in the piazza after the hike down!"

    "With a car, you could go to the Abruzzo National Park and follow one of the many trails and take a dip in a lake. You could also check out some of the neighboring towns, like Isola del Liri, which is a beautiful town flanked by two rives and has waterfall at its center. And Posta Fibreno has a beautiful (and freezing!) lake and nice bars. "

    "Another thing I did was visit the cheese shepherd’s house just up the road from Via Piana for a cheese-making demo and a visit to their shop, where you can buy their cheese, cold pressed olive oil, and wine."

    "And take a walk at night! Given the altitude, the stargazing is amazing and the roads cut through olive groves and grapevines. Blackberry bushes and many varieties of mint also line the path."

    "I really recommend staying at Anna's Italycountrystay. It's comfortable, in a beautiful location with lots of activities to do outdoors, and the service is great."

    "I found this to be a very comfortable and homely guesthouse in a beautiful, unspoiled location. The room was charming and a good size, with stunning views of the mountains and nearby Sora from the lovely garden terrace. Anna is a wonderfully friendly hostess who will go out of her way to help you with practical matters or planning your trip. When I was there she hosted a ‘pizza night’ using her traditional Italian wood fired pizza oven - delicious! The village is very peaceful, but there are good transport options available should you wish to visit Rome, Naples, or the surrounding towns. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here and would highly recommend."
