About this location

The Abruzzo region

Abruzzo is known for the Gran Sasso and Maiella National Parks, the largest protected area in the whole of Europe. It has a great deal to offer the holiday maker; you will find the highest peaks of the Apennines, the Gran Sasso (Monte Corno 9,560 feet), Maiella and Velino-Sirente, perfect for walking, climbing, cycling and kayaking. Its landscape of mountains, deep canyons and valleys offer a natural beauty rivaling any other region. The Abruzzo coastline has wide, sandy shores, high, jagged cliffs, narrow creeks, pebble beaches and in some places it is positively wild. With something to suit all tastes, traditional villages and historic towns, an astonishing wealth of art and culture, regional gastronomy, Abruzzo is said to be the last undiscovered region of Italy.


The town of Sulmona is situated in the centre of the Peligna Valley at the foot of the Maiella mountain range. The birth place of the great poet Ovid, Sulmona preserves its heritage of monuments, architecture and works of art. Today the town is also an important agriculture and commercial centre and is famous the world over for its confetti (sugar coated almond candies), and for its goldsmiths. The town offers a wide range of shops, boutiques and restaurants.There are also excellent sports facilities including tennis courts, a swimming pool and horse riding. About 10 mins outside Sulmona is an excellent waterpark with shaded picnic area, ideal for a day out. Lake Scanno is just a 20 minute drive, while the winter resort town of Roccaraso, central Italy's largest winter resort with snow and pistes open from November to April, is just 40 mins away.


There are too many fantastic restaurants in Sulmona and the local area to list, here are a few of our favourites:

OSTERIA DEL TEMPO PERSO (Pizzeria - Restaurant)

Vico del Vecchio, 7. Tel 0864 52545. Fantastic food in a fantastic setting and all at very reasonable prices. Worth booking a table as it can get very busy.

VECCHIO MURO (Pizzeria - Restaurant)

Via M. D'Eramo, 20. Tel 0864 50595. Eat in or outdoors in this amazing restaurant. Very reasonable prices for superb food. Definitely worth booking a table as gets very busy.

AL QUADRIVIO (Restaurant)

Via Mazara, 38. Great local food at great prices.

LA GOLE (Pizzeria - Restaurant)

A fantastic restaurant on the outskirts of Aniversa Degli Abruzzi. Amazing views and great food at very reasonable prices.

"Grazie Mille Villa Ulignano"

We booked Villa Ulignano on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed here previously and our expectations were high as a result; we were not disappointed.The accommodation is as described and was… More

"Fantastic apartment in a beautiful area"

Apartment is really great.. good sized bedrooms, one with king size bed & balcony with view of the mountains, one with bunk beds. The whole place is very clean and modern, lounge / kitchen area is spacious with kitchen table with all the gadgets you could possibly need. There's a washing machine should you need one too! All the linen and plenty of towels were supplied and everything was there. You really can just turn up with a change of cloths and be fine! There is a private seating area outdoors and BBQ to use too. The apartment is up some steps and to the side of the owners house and surrounded by their small holding/ land. The owners are very accommodating and friendly - willing to give suggestions of places to visit if you need... (and they make the most amazing wine you can buy!!!) The apartment is 5-10 minutes from Sulmonia so you really need a car to get around and see some of the beautiful sights of the local area. There's plenty of places to go and explore some really lovely restaurants - (and so many ice cream flavors to try too!). Although you are in a mountainous area it was under an hour to Pescara beach which is a beautiful sandy beach. A brilliant holiday and fantastic place to stay - just wish we'd gone for more than a week... A great holiday to completely relax and enjoy a piece of Italy.

Thank you very much for your kind comments, it was a pleasure having you to stay & we hope to see you back here again one day.
Kind regards
