A charming, family-run farmhouse in southern Italy, surrounded by orchards and wheat fields, with opulent design features - includes breakfast, a local farm tasting tour, welcome treats and a suite option


If you like the idea of getting away from the stresses of daily life with a back-to-nature retreat, but not ready to surrender your creature comforts just yet, family-run Essentia Dimora Rurale perfectly combines both elements for a traditional, yet luxurious, farmhouse stay in southern Italy.

Surrounded by acres of land, filled with orchards, olive groves and wheat fields, you can enjoy an abundance of wholesome activities here year round. If you choose to visit during the Spring, when farms are at their most fruitful, you’ll be rewarded with activities like ‘a day as a shepherd’, while a visit in early Summer means you can partake in the harvest celebrations. Cookery classes, horse-riding trips and tasting sessions are also on offer.

This is no ordinary farmhouse though, proven by the luxurious guest rooms. Superior rooms are a large space, decorated in neutral hues and sunny yellows, with a plush two-seater sofa and small dining table. The en-suites are unique in design, with an intricate kaleidoscope design on the walls. Alternatively, the level of decadence sky-rockets in the Deluxe suites, where you can sink into a freestanding tub set against a roaring fireplace.

Breakfast at Essentia Dimora Rurale abounds with pies, cakes, pastries, fruit, cereal, cold cuts and more, taken in the rustic dining room, updated with brightly coloured chairs. Other meals are just as impressive, the majority of which is rustled up from produce grown on the farmhouse’s own farm.


Essentia Dimora Rurale resides in the town of Larino, a small commune in Campobasso, southern Italy. Comprising both an old town, shaped like a bird’s wing, and a mountainside new town, must-sees include the first-century AD Roman amphitheatre and cathedral that dates back to the 13th century. Venture further afield for coastal day trips - the fishing town of Termoli is a 15-minute drive away - and southern Italy’s stunning Gargano National Park.

Good to know
