Molise, an ancient and authentic land, offers a “made in Italy” sea and golden beaches interrupted here and there by small cliffs, lapped by unpolluted crystalline water. This is not a slogan, it is the generous reaction of a land which wants to prove how genuine its offer is. The region inland offers visitors a procession of unusual, incrediblelandscape, village clinging to steep slopes, hills gentle at times and rugged at others, all the way to the initial buttresses of the Abruzzo National Park.
Every corner of Molise contains history and axtremely ancient craft working traditions; in the village streets you will still find embroiderers making lace; today Agnone is still the foundry of the most beatiful bells in the world and then there is the pottery and the pipes… Attractions abound, historical medieval and Roman finds, castels, churches, basilicas and the latest discovery of pre-historic man at Isernia. You just need a little time to discover Molise: beatiful, wild, unpredictable but welcoming. Here we find a patrimony of nature of princeless worth, disguised by the simplicity of the places and the people, which must be protected. In Molise there are no large urban developments or dangerous industrial sites, the greatest sources of pollution. The coast on the other hand is free from inlets and is touched by breezes which create sea and air currents, guaranteeing continuous water exchange. The sandy bottoms then constitute a valid natural purification system. The results of water test samples expressed as percentages further underline just how the local water is practically uncontaminated.
The particular geographic location and the efficient communications nework make Maronda an ideal starting point for the Tremiti Islands, the Abruzzo National Park, Rome, Naples, Montecassino, San Giovanni Rotondo (Padre Pio). Pottery and embroidery at Isernia, archaeology at Sepino e Pietrabbondante, bells at Agnone, pipes at Scapoli; trips on the Gargano, to the grottoes of Castellana, to the “Trulli” at Alberobello and to the high Umbrian Forest.
