The Abruzzo region

There is something for everyone in Abruzzo. Nature and history, art and scenery, traditional culture and avant-garde festivals all jostle for attention.

There is an abundance of wildlife in the National Parks, home to the Marsican bear and Apennine wolves (two species that have been saved from extinction), Chamois, deer and Roe deer, and the scenery varies from dense woodland to wide open plains and picture perfect lakes such as: Lake Vivo, Lake Pantaniello and the Lake of Scanno, not forgetting the artificial basins of Barrea and the Montagna Spaccata.

In winter many of the snow covered mountain ranges become home for skiers of all abilities. The ski resort of Roccaraso is only 25 minutes away.

Festivals play a large part in the life of Italians, every city, town and village has its own special festival, including Sulmona and you will always be invited to join in by the friendly locals.

From stunning medieval villages to amazing hilltop castles, breathtaking scenery to long sandy beaches, there really is something for everyone in Abruzzo. Close by there are a number of activities you can take part in horse riding, mountain biking, fishing, go karting to name but a few.

Majella National Park

Abruzzo National Park

Gran Sasso National

Pettorano sul Gizio

Casa Soltau is a five minute drive away from Sulmona, which is an ancient city full of history. It is famous for its confetti, (sugar-coated almonds) and also hosts an amazing medieval jousting tournament in the Piazza Garibaldi at the end of July. The birthplace of the poet Ovid, Sulmona is a wonderful town to explore on foot. There you will find facilities such as supermarkets, shopping centres, bars, restaurants, museums, a theatre, cinema, sports complexes and railway station, in addition to many fine buildings, churches and parks. Sulmona and the surrounding villages have a large calendar of events which include many festivals. Sulmona's Easter celebrations and the annual International Jousting competitions in July and August are of particular note with medieval pageantry parades.

Sulmona is gastronomically delightful with restaurants serving locally produced fresh food. Try the wonderful range of Peccorino cheeses and fine local wines, such as the white Trebbiano and red Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

Sulmona has various piazzas, churches and palaces of historical and tourist interest. Some of these include:

Cattedrale di San Panfilo. The city's cathedral, sitting on the northwest side of the old city and was built on the site of a Roman temple.

Piazza XX Settembre. One of the main squares of the city, including a bronze statue of the Roman poet Ovid.

Corso Ovidio. The city's main thoroughfare connects the cathedral and the major piazzas and is lined by elegant covered arcades, shops, cafes, palaces and churches.

Palazzo Annunziata and Chiesa della SS. Annunziata. The Palace, one of the rare examples of late medieval/early Renaissance architecture in Sulmona that survived the earthquake of 1706.

Piazza Garibaldi is the largest square in town with a large baroque era fountain. On the south side of the Piazza is the 12th Century Gothic aqueduct.

From Sulmona regular buses and trains will take you straight into Rome, Pescara and other cities. The beach at Pescara is only a short walk from the train station.

Sulmona has a huge lively market every Wednesday and Saturday where you can buy fresh local produce, clothing, toys etc and nearby Raiano has a large and vibrant market held every Sunday morning.

"This property exceeded our expectations."

When we arrived at Casa Soltau and opened the front door we immediately knew that we would have a great stay in both the house and Sulmona. The house provided everything as per the description on the web page, not to mention that the house was spotless. We could relax there as if we were in our own home and will most definitely return and we have already made enquires for our next trip. We looked forward to returning to the house after our various day trips. The location is magnificent and I would recommend having a car so that you can visit the nearby towns. We thanked MIchael for providing such a beautiful place to stay and Paula, his housekeeper was also very obliging.

"Great location, great views and great local food."

No expense spared on this holiday home. A welcome pack waiting for us and a very spacious, comfortable home. We wanted to ski and the short trip to the slopes was ideal as it meant we could stay in Sulmona and enjoy the local cuisine!
