Never been to Abruzzo before and, compared to more northern parts of Italy and to the Amalfi coast, it is just so much more relaxed and natural. Not a lot of English spoken, but that doesn't seem to matter - everyone is just so friendly...More

About the neighbourhood
Casa Foelas is in the unique position of being equal distance between the mountains and the beautiful trabocchi coast 25 mins to both.All amenities are easily reached by car The local area is populated with many old picturesque villages and towns, such as Casoli 10 mins away by car..Those who wish to avoid well developed holiday resorts will take solace in lots of small towns scattered through out the area. Gorgeous stone castles dotted through the countryside . Medieval fortresses built to protect hill top villages, small chapels with stunning architecture and beautiful religious relics.The basilica in historic Lanciano is breath taking beautiful and only 20 mins away. In the local area there are any number of activities from water sports on Lake Bomba which is 15 mins drive from the ...
Getting around
Car hire is essential when renting Casa Foelas . There is parking for two cars at the property . The lane to the house is quite narrow in places (there are passing places )and typical of rural Italy . In this area it is very difficult to arrange taxis so please be aware of this when considering this property to rent .
