Description from owner

Description

The apartment is located in a small village, with lovely old buildings, a fort tower (XIV century), where the church bells ring, like in old days, three times a day and the locals say hello to strangers.

30% of the territory of Abruzzo is protected with three national parks, one regional parks and almost a dozen of natural reserves. The area is famous for excellent sheep cheese, authentic pasta dishes, non-GMO spelt, lamb meat, medieval hermitages and monasteries, mountain walks, cycling routes, rock climbing, natural spring spa towns and its breathtaking natural beauty.

Many excellent wine itineraries are within an easy reach from the village.

The sea is 45 mins away. There is a bus going to Pescara with beaches, restaurants and excellent shopping a few times a day.

There are three excellent restaurants in the village, three bars, a pharmacy, traditional butcher's, post office and bakery. Bigger supermarkets and more restaurants are within a short drive.

Location description from owner

The Abruzzo region

There is a whole universe to be discovered between the Apennines and the sea. Easily reached from most parts of Italy,Abruzzo nonetheless remained at a distance, a little withdrawn, for a long time, but little by little it is very rightly being rediscovered.The beaches and the cliffs line 130 kilometres of the Adriatic coast and they are probably the best known part of the region.
Previously, the coast was a favourite with families, but younger people and international visitors have started to discover the area thanks to its marinas, sports facilities and many events.At the same time, thousands of visitors from Italy and Europe have begun to move inwards to the splendid hinterland, seeking out the art towns and old centres, visiting the castles, the churches and the abbeys. They are also venturing onto the hiking paths in the three National Parks, the Regional Park, the dozens of Nature Reserves and sanctuaries that ensure the survival of 75% of all Europe's living species, and which make Abruzzo the "greenest region in Europe".These are not the only reasons to visit Abruzzo: ski enthusiasts from all over Italy enjoy the snow-covered slopes that have now also begun to attract foreign skiers thanks to international connections through Abruzzo Airport.

Gourmets can rediscover the authentic flavours of regional produce, wines and olive oils, and those who want to focus on wellness will enjoy the spas at the foot of Mount Majella and in theVal Roveto woods. For centuries, writers and guidebooks have referred to Abruzzo as "strong and amiable", but local residents would find this definition somewhat limiting.One thing is certain though: the oversimplified description is based on truth. First of all, the Abruzzo countryside itself is very strong: basic, rugged and memorable. Undoubtedly the images of Abruzzo are strong, unbelievably strong: images of medieval villages entrenched on the mountainsides; a chamois, an eagle or a wolf suddenly appearing in the mountain's most solitary nooks; castles that keep watching over today's Apennines roads, just as they did in the past.

Roccamorice

Roccamorice is known as "La Rocca" in the local dialect. It is located in the foothills of the Majella mountains, at an altitude of 520msl.

The history of the area around the village dates back to early Roman times when the Maiella mountains above Roccamorice were mined by the Romans for precious metals. A great many slaves were used and there is some indication that it also became a Roman penal colony.

The village of Roccamorice was born in medieval times, and from the 1400s into the 1700s it belonged to the feudal Valignani family. There is a remnant of a tower, "La Torre," which was built in XIV century by a powerful feudal family that controlled Roccamorice at the time. At that time such towers served as strongholds during attack. The tower was adjacent castle which is now gone.

The area has many tholoi, the shepherds' stone huts, which are now considered a national historical treasure.

Roccamorice is known for its two eremi, or hermitages: Eremo di San Bartolomeo and Eremo di Santo Spirito a Majella.They were buil in XII-XIII centuries by monks who believed that isolation and solitude were a means to spiritual growth.

You can also visit the historical towns of L'Aquila, Sulmona, Atri and the Maiella National Park, the Abruzzo National Park and National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga.

“Spacious apartment in a tranquil location”

Reviewed 29 May 2013

This apartment has special meaning for me because my fiance' proposed while we were staying there! Roccamorice is a very quaint idyllic Italian town with a few great restaurants and great views. The apartment is really large- it was great because it had a kitchen so we could cook. Everything was in great working order and very tidy. There is also a beautiful garden where you can sit and have drinks or a nice meal. Anna was also very kind and very helpful and very caring about how our stay went. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!
