Situated off a very quiet private road, serving just one further property meaning passing traffic is at a minimum. Although in a quiet position we are still close to all essential amenities and walking distance to bars, shops and a lovely restaurant, renowned for its meat and fish dishes. It is especially suited for families as we have lots of play equipment in the garden. The Adriatic coast with its golden sands are just 20 minutes drive away and the spectacular Gran Sasso mountains just 30 minutes away. The beautiful hilltop town of Loreto Aprutino less than 5 minutes and Penne less than 10 minutes away. A perfect spot for exploring the coast and the mountains and the various hill-top towns close by.It is also perfect for those who like a good walk. We have a number of personally prepared walks in the area, many situated in the mountains, so you can reach some of the highest points in the Apennines, even reaching the most southerly glacier in Europe.
The Abruzzo region
Abruzzo is described as the garden of Europe, a land of parks, the green lungs of central Italy. A protected paradise of beaches, hills, woods and mountains. Abruzzo boasts an area of protected territory that has no equal in the rest of Europe. It has the highest peak in the Apennines, the Corno Grande (2914m) and also the southern most glacier in Europe..
The mountain ranges of The Gran Sasso and the Maiella, both of which are visible from the apartment, have a huge amount of wildlife including brown bears, wolves, deer, boar, chamois to name but a few. There are also vultures and many eagles. Golden eagles are a common sight. There are numerous picnic areas including barbecues so you can choose the ideal spot for a bit of lunch.
The golden sand coast stretches for mile after mile with many beautiful beaches to choose from, Silvi Marina, Pineto, Montesilvano etc., catering for everyones taste. From private beaches where you can hire parasols and sun beds and have shower and toilet facilities, to vast public beaches giving you as much or as little privacy as you like. The sand slopes gently into the sea, making bathing very safe, even for the youngest child.
Loreto Aprutino grew up around the castle and Benedictine abbey in the 11th century. Many of the characteristic buildings of the city were built in the Middle Ages and are still visible as you wander the streets.
Enjoy meandering through the narrow streets of the town soaking up the atmosphere of a very typical Italian town. Call at the former Castle, now a hotel at the top of the town for a coffee, wine or a spot of lunch. The hotel has been many things in its past including a monestry and a prison. The views from this hotel are breathtaking and now very popular for English weddings. You'll understand why when you visit.
There are many 'Festas' throughout the year in and around Loreto Aprutino. These festas are usually associated with food, wine and music and usually last for a few days.
The Church of Santa Maria in Piano in Loreto Aprutino is well worth a visit, with the frescoes being the largest and most important in Abruzzo.
Loreto Aprutino is twinned with Tring in Hertfordshire, so now is a great time for those of you from Tring to stay and visit your own hilltop twinned town.

“Fabulous scenery, tranquil setting, great for families and friendly welcome”
This is a great spot if you want peace and tranquility. We went for a family wedding in Aprutino and didn't want to stay in the town so chose this villa as it was located in the countryside. We weren't disappointed as the villa is right next to a vineyard! We spent one very pleasant afternoon sampling the wines and local food - the kids came too and had a great timer testing the new foods. here is a lovely walk up to a ruined tower and there were a great array fo cherry trees with lots of fruit ready to be plucked and eaten. The villa is well laid out with 3 bedrooms and plenty of space for a family - we went with our 2 children (7 yrs and 10 yrs) and their grandparents and uncle. the kids shared our room and it was not a problem. There is a great garden with lots of room for the children to explore and play. There was outdoor furniture and a hammock which was perfect for an afternoon snooze! You definitely need a car to access the local amenities and local restaurants - which are excellent. We really enjoyed the food! We also enjoyed the local scenery and spent a lovely day driving up into the hills, walking through a wood and then stopped by a picturesque waterfall. We did a bit of rock pooling and found crabs! We then walked up the hill to find a pretty little village.
“Comfortable apartment, wonderful Hosts, interesting area with high potential to explore or just to rest”
The place really worth to recommend. Comfortable apartment, big garden with olive trees, splash pool, green, quiet area. Very friendly and helpful Hosts (special greetings for the Girls). Good spot to discover Abruzzo - fortunatelly not crowded, but very interesting and still genuine part of Italy. The spot is close to the seaside (lots od fine beaches with "blue flag") or to the mountains (visit in Campo Imperatore highly recommended). There are also some interesting medieval towns (Lanciano). Pretty close to Rome (about 2 hours on the highway). Several really good local restaurants with more than reasonable prices in close proximity. The Owners produce their own olive oil - if You try it, You wouldn't like to have another one ;-). In walking distance there is also a good vineyard (and some more of them with cheap, table wine in a the area). It's better to have a car to reach at least some of interesting places around Loreto... There is the only holiday home we returned year after year - and we plan to do it once again..
“Lovely apartment & hosts, great location for mountains, sea & culture.”
A lovely airy apartment with all mod cons and in a quiet rural location amongst olive groves and vinyards. You could not wish for a more friendly greeting from the hosts who were helpful whenever needed during our stay for local information and insider knowledge. We enjoyed our stay very much and judging from the many guests comments in the visitors book, so have everyone else. There's so much of interest with two hilltop towns Loreto and Penne just 10mins or so away for a variety of bars and restaurants. Our hosts recommended a superb pizza place where all pizzas are cooked in a wood fired oven. We drove into the mountains and had some lovely walks and took our girls to the beach the next day; both only a short drive away. We had some oranges fresh off our hosts tree and their own olive oil is just fab on salads. We spent a day just relaxing in the olive grove and ate out on the BBQ terrace. We wanted to visit the Roman amphitheatre of Alba Fucens, We drove nearby it on the way over from Rome but we ran out of time; will definitely have to come back here for another stay.
