About the neighbourhood
The apartment is only 30 km from beautiful Adriatic beaches, and only 35 km from stunning ski slopes. This area of Abruzzo has much to offer whether you are looking for an active or more relaxed break. From mountain walking, cycling, skiing and water sports to soaking up the history of churches, museums, hilltop towns or the Gustav Line. It is perfectly situated for pursuing hobbies such as painting and photography, and may just inspire you to 'write that book'. The area is well served by restaurants providing traditional local cuisine and wine.
Getting around
We recommend a car to explore this beautiful area.
