The Abruzzo region
To travel to Abruzzo is to witness an age-old Italian lifestyle that has not changed for centuries. You'll find ancient beechwood forests inhabited by wolves, wild boar and bears. Century-old footpaths, still used by colourfully-attired shepherds and their flocks, ominous castles which now guard nothing but beautiful scenery. catching a glimps of a soaring royal eagle or a lone family of mountain goats.
Abruzzo is mountainous region, with its eastern border marked by vast white sandy beaches, and pebbled coves stretching along the Adriatic coast, with breakwaters in the sea, allowing safe bathing for children, and a haven for small sea wildlife, ideal for snorkelling.
Abruzzo is steeped in history, with ancient buildings allowing you to visit a Cathedral built on a bridge or the Abbey overlooking the cliffs along the Adriatic. Why not take a boat trip on lake Bomba, or even wake board behind it. In spring you can snowboard in the mountains, then in the afternoon, paddle in the warm azure blue sea of the Adriatic. There is the stunning grotte de cavalone, a 2km long cave, only accessible via a gondola lift, high into the mountain, a castle on a dormant volcano at Roccascalegna, just to name a few of the attractions in the area.
Through the whole of August to the middle of September there are festivals all over the region, with something for everyone, every evening. However the festival season in Abruzzo starts in May.
Palombaro is an ancient town built on top of a hill, it hosts festivals during the month of August as do most villages and towns in the area. Palombaro is a small friendly town, that hosts a small market weekly, it comprises of a few local pubs, hotel that has an outdoor pool which is open to the public for a small charge.
Macerlleria (butchers), a supermarket, bank with cash point. A 16th century monastery ruins can be found in a small cave, a short walk into the hills, 40mins drive to local small ski resort or 50 mins to the 3rd biggest ski resort in Italy.
