The Abruzzo region
Surrounded by Abruzzo’s natural beauty & picturesque villages, there's plenty to do & see all year round.
For those wanting a relaxing stay, there is the lovely seaside resort of Pescara (which is less than an hour’s drive away from the house) with its golden beaches, sea front restaurants & shopping areas.
For the more adventurous, Abruzzo has lots to offer, including walking, climbing, mountain biking, horse trekking to name a few. Abruzzo has 3 National Parks, so perfect for the budding photographer with its wildlife & mountain views. The lovely Lake Scanno is just half an hours drive away from the house where you can hire peddalo's, bikes or just take a picnic.
A great base for Winter Sports too, the house being just 40 km away from one of Italy’s largest Ski Resorts, Rocarasso, where there is access to alpine skiing, x-country skiing, off-piste skiing, snow boarding and ice skating (pistes open Nov-Apr) – check out www.rocarasso.net
Our home is located in the state of Abruzzo, the ‘Green Heart of Italy’. Abruzzo is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. The house is ideally situated for those wanting to experience a true taste of Italy. The village of Torre dei Nolfi, Bugnara, offers the Italian rural idyll, whilst being only a short drive from the beautiful, historic town of Sulmona.
Sulmona itself is awash with history and architecture, being the birth place of the poet, Ovid, as well as 'Confetti' - sugared almonds. The town has beautiful shops & boutiques as well as restaurants and a fantastic ice-cream parlour or two! The town has a market on both Wednesday & Saturday in the local square as well as one in nearby Raiano, on Sunday mornings. There is also a good choice of supermarkets for the weekly groceries.
During Summer all the towns & villages hold their own celebrations or 'festa's', individual to that town or village. From Sulmonas 'Giostra' featuring knights on horses & ladies in beautiful periodic dress to Bugnara's flower (fiori) festival. Most involve night time music, food & drink, so well worth a visit!
