How to get there
Ryan Air operates daily flights from Stansted to Pescara during the summer, in winter it’s 3 times per week. Pescara airport is a small airport close to the main auto routes (and opposite Auchan hypermarket). Hertz car rentals give a discount if you book from the link on Ryan Air website, other car rental companies do operate from Pescara. Casa del Fiume is a 1 hour drive from Pescara airport.
Alternatively fly to Rome from most major UK airports. The drive from Rome will take 2.5 to 3 hours on the autostrada – but it is a beautiful route.
Driving from UK? It will take at least 2 days from London and preferably with 2 people sharing the driving.
Once you decide on which transport you will be using, please let us know and we will supply you with recommended routes to use. There is always an easy route usually via motorways, which can be boring for some, or a more difficult route that takes you through countryside with splendid views of mountains and hill-top villages - that may require some map-reading skills.
Easy route from Pescara airport:
Leave the airport from the exit opposite Auchan hypermarket and turn right. Follow the (green) signs to A14 motorway. Once past the toll gate (do not forget to pick up the ticket) go south in the direction of Bari. The motorway skirts the sea, so the views are of the sea and surrounding hills covered with vines and olive groves. A few tunnels too.After about 30 minutes, take the exit called 'Val di Sangro' for the SS652 road signposted 'Castel di Sangro'. After some 15 Kms take the SS81 signposted 'Casoli'. After 7 Kms turn onto the SS84 and drive straight through Casoli towards 'Lama dei Peligni'. Drive past the lake (called Lago di Casoli or Lago di Sant'Angelo) and ten minutes drive after the lake you will enter Frazione Vicenne. 'Casa del Fiume' is on the 4th bend.
