La Piana di Alsium for stays of taste and nature in Ladispoli
In Ladispoli, a seaside resort on the Via Aurelia, 38 km from Rome, it is a mainly seaside town desired and built by Prince Ladislao Odescalchi at the end of the last century. Etruscan port originally, was called Alsium. Later it became a Roman colony. The promenade is characterized by the remains of an imperial maritime villa, in addition to the Odescalchi Castle. Around the city, expanses of fields where the cultivation of the artichoke is the master, a true typical regional delight. It is on this plain that the farm of Gianni Belardi and his wife Silvia was born in 1979. The Belards have been farmers for generations and know the passion and dedication of working in the fields.
The company has been producing fruit and vegetables and has been selling directly to the consumer on the Ladispoli daily market for 40 years. In 2010, with the help of the three children it becomes multifunctional. Thus was born Agriturismo La Piana di Alsium: 4 bedrooms, swimming pool, breakfast and catering based on local products, also for celiacs.
The agriturismo is located in the countryside between Ladispoli and Marina di Cerveteri, near the Torre Flavia nature reserve, with land that extends over approximately three hectares. The business is family-run. The food served is the result of daily work in the fields. The property offers a breakfast full of homemade desserts, hot bread and jams, hot chocolate, tea, cappuccino, fruit juices and juicers. Guests can take advantage of half board and external customers have the opportunity to taste genuine dishes on Saturday evening and Sunday lunch by reservation. Also open for events and private parties.
The Piana di Alsium is the ideal place for those wishing to enjoy the historical and seaside resources of Cerveteri, Ladispoli, Rome and Bracciano. It is also associated with AIC (Italian Celiac Association), to make your stay safe even for those suffering from food intolerances.
