Location description from owner

The Abruzzo region

Not familiar with Abruzzo? Neither was I until a few years ago, now we love this part of Italy. From April to October the climate is better than that of August in England. We have the beaches to ourselves in the weeks except in July & August when the Italians migrate to the beach. The local area is a wine and olive producing region with a number of local cantinas selling wine and olive oil from the tap. The local red wine is the renowned Montepulciano and the lesser known but equally drinkable Trebbiano white wine. Try also the local Pecorino white wine and the rose.The area has some of the finest fish restaurants where even none fish eaters will come away satisfied. Torino di Sangro is well located for beautiful beaches and the mountains of Abruzzo. Explore the local villages for history in abundance and enjoy our recommendations for visits which you will find in the house on arrival. Abruzzo is an amazing place which you can easily fall in love with. It has 3 national parks and a wide variety of things to do and see. From November to April you can ski at the nearby Passo Lanciano and other ski resorts such as Roccarasso which holds world cup and olympic events and has swimming, ice-skating, bowling too. In summer there is the traditional beach holiday with blue flag sandy beaches close by at le morge and Casalbordino lido. If you are in to cycling the Giro has passed by the house in May of 2006 and the route invariably passes near by. If rowing is your thing the nearby Lake Bomba hosts international rowing events and offers lessons and boat hire. If you love nature trails the nearby nature reserves and coastal walks and the National Parks offer a lot to take your interest. Trip along the ;trabocchi coast is a must to see the many trabocchi which are unique to this area. They are intricate, precarious wooden fishing piers where a unique fishing approach is taken by lowering nets into the water and scooping up the catch by use of pulleys. The beach of St Vito in Chietino is the best one to view 3 of these structures and to enjoy a fantastic fish lunch in the open air.

Torino di Sangro

Torino di Sangro is the nearest village 2 km away and the comune of Cavone comes within its area. This is a thriving village with bars, restaurants, shops, bank, school and many typical local festivals throughout the year. Other nearby villages include Villa Fonsina 3km and Casalbordino 5km. The local beaches are very easily accessible only 4km from the house via a local road which joins the main road to the coast and the whole experience is relaxing and hastle free. Walking, cycling, sight-seeing, eating and promenading along the beaches and through the villages is the order of the day. Lots too for children who are adored by the Abruzzesse. The local turtle reserve has well signposted walks which can be combined with a visit to the Commonwealth War Cemetery and a visit to Fossacessia Lido which is a nice place to stop for lunch and watch the world promendade by. The best ice cream parlours can be found here at the beach.Travel to the local towns of Lanciano and Vasto for more extensive shopping and leisure activities, including a water park at Vasto which opens late June to late September and bowling alleys, hotels, many bars and cafes and swimming pools. In the mountains there are a range of activities including white water rafting, canooing, skiing, snowboarding. The national parks of Abruzzo are renowned for the wildlife and beauty. Rome is only 2 hours away and the road is a pleasure to drive. The village itself has three churches which are well worth a visit and if you do venture on Sunday morning you will see the village at its busiest with a small market on the main street and everybody out about their business.
