The apartment has a very nice view over medieval town of L'Aquila, and is near the Gran Sasso's National park.
L'Aquila is easily accessible, with Rome and Pescara airport , both one hour by car, making the apartment an ideal jump off point for a trip to the capital and to the warm Adriatic sea. It's also the centre of Italy, so the major towns and cities are easily accessible.
There are 5 ski resorts in the area - Campo Imperatore, with the highest peak, Corno Grande of the Apennines rising high above the plain - is the closest to L'Aquila and offers excellent skiing for the more advanced skier. To get to the ski resort, drive along the motorway, 5 minutes from the apartment, and within 15 minutes you'll be in the cable car in Assergi to take you up to the ski resort of Campo Imperatore. (Plenty of parking to leave your car near the cable car).
The plain of Campo Imperatore is a fantastic place to explore not just in the winter, but offers numerous walking/hiking possibilities throughout the year.
Other ski resorts include Campo Felice - good for beginners and less capable skiers, Ovindoli, Lanciano and Roccarasso. So plenty to choose from for any level of competence.
If you fancy a trip to Rome, by car it will take just under 1 hour, or you can take the bus it costs around 10 euros, there are several services per day till late.

About this location
The Abruzzo region
Abruzzo is a region that knows about preservation: that is the best way to sum up its spirit and approach. Discovering the extraordinary landscape, strolling through the stately ancient towns and villages that have stood on hilltops since time immemorial, the most immediate impact is of a region that has successfully preserved many of its original features, in an untouched environment where human presence is rooted in the mists of time, proving that a reciprocal and respectful balance has emerged.
The magic of Abruzzo derives precisely from the measured equilibrium of a landscape dominated by Nature and a stratified human presence, which can be seen in the theory of villages dotted around the countryside, the architectural might of churches, castles and mansions, precious works of art, the countless examples of applied arts and ageless rural traditions. What better enticement for the keen, attentive visitor to explore Abruzzo and seek out the typical features of splendour that make this such a unique region. Above all, Nature is a protected resource in Abruzzo, with one third of the territory designated as parkland, so the region not only achieves a cultural and civil record in environmental protection, but emerges as Europe's largest nature area: the real green heart of the Mediterranean.
L'Aquila , the capital of the province and the region of Abruzzo , is a town of over 72,000 inhabitants. Located in a valley at the foot of the Gran Sasso , L'Aquila rises to over 710 meters above sea level.
The origins of the town are very old and well documented, it was the Emperor Frederick II founded the city in 1230 in order to better control the trades of the Apennines.
Its urban structure is very special and you think that it should represent the constellation of the eagle , coat of arms of Frederick II.
L'Aquila was born from the union of 99 villages who responded to a village-mother and remained for a long time alone , even if answering the Kingdom of Naples and, briefly, the Papal States .
Wonderful city of architecture, art and nature, is to be experienced. Great food, pleasant climate: hot summers, very cold winter. Surrounding all to visit, hundreds of villages full of "treasures". There are those who would pay to live here!
Do not miss: The Piccolomini Castle, Basilica of Santa Maria di Collemaggio, Fountain of the 99 Spouts. Now, this beautiful and ancient town has many injuries due to the earthquake of 2009
