Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Abruzzo, Italy your home away from home

Abruzzo is a region of east central Italy on the Adriatic Coast. The true Italian lifestyle is still richly adhered to in Abruzzo, and the countryside is still so unspoilt that bears and wolves still roam free. You can truly escape the trappings of modern life in a self catering Abruzzo property, and trek age old trails leading to menacing castles which no longer protect the wild landscape.

Things to do in Abruzzo, Italy

The vast beaches of the Adriatic Sea bring in tourists from across Europe to relax and tan themselves on the soft sand. There is 129km of coastline to choose from, and arguably the best beaches are located in Vasto, Silvi Marina and Francavilla al Mare.

Inland, the Abruzzo Mountains contain some of the least known rural towns in Italy, and the huge and extremely important Abruzzo National Park, Maiella National Park which protect various species of wildlife and fauna, as well as the most southerly glacier in Europe, the Calderone.

The dramatic countryside is adorned with impressive castles, monasteries and convents, many of which hide secret treasures of the art world. Of particular note is the Convent of San Giuliano, which overlooks L’Aquila, and its 18th Century frescos.

Family holidays to Abruzzo are very popular, as there are many adventures to be had across the region. Taking a self catering villa in Abruzzo means that you can spend some time following the rivers which carve through the spectacular Stiffe Caves or hop on and off the Treno della Valle wherever the mood takes you.

Family holidays to Abruzzo accommodation during the winter can take advantage of the 21 ski resorts which boast 368km of runs, just a few hours from Rome. Roccaraso, campo Felice and Campo Imperatore are especially note worthy, being located high in the Apennines, and offering not only down hill skiing but huge tracts of cross country skiing too.

During the summer, the mountains and parks make taking an Abruzzo holiday rental apartment perfect for walking, horse riding and mountain climbing.

Due to the remote and unspoilt nature of the region, the local cuisine is truly authentic and intensely flavoursome, which makes taking a self catering holiday property in Abruzzo a gastronomic delight. The wild boar, local sheep’s cheese and liver salami are especially mouth watering, no matter how adventurous you are when it comes to food. The local wines are certainly worth stocking up on if you are lucky enough to stay in an Abruzzo house too.

Places to go on holiday in Abruzzo, Italy

The capital of Abruzzo, L’Aquila, is an extremely picturesque town in an even more beautiful setting. Taking an Abruzzo apartment in L’Aquila is perfect for first time visitors to the region to start to uncover some of the nicest corners of the region to return to.

Weather in Abruzzo, Italy

Temperatures in summer soar to a lovely 32°C during most days, although variation does occur due to the large altitude differences across the region. If you are taking a holiday house in Abruzzo’s mountain regions, temperatures will be slightly cooler.

Flights to Abruzzo, Italy

Abruzzo International Airport in Pescara (PSR) on the Adriatic Coast has meant that the region has become easily accessible to tourists from the UK. RyanAir provide some brilliantly cheap flights from London, which has meant that family holidays in Abruzzo accommodation are a wonderfully good value option.

The villa was well equipped with everything you would possibly need. Unfortunately the hot tub was not in working during our stay as this would of been the icing on the cake but this did not effect our holiday as we have come home with some wonderful memories!

The villa is presented to a very high standard, is very well equipped and has a lovely swimming pool. There are stunning views from the upstairs balcony of the beautiful surrounding countryside, including Lake Bomba. The villa is secluded and peaceful but is only a kilometre up the hill to the fascinating old village of Roccascalegna and its castle. We would love to go back and the enjoy the tranquility and comfort of the villa and explore the local area further.

A home away from home. Piero with his sunny disposition was extremely helpful and eager to share his local knowledge. Enjoyed visiting the local town and various attractions which were all within easy reach. The proposed addition of a swimming pool will make this a holiday destination that is hard to beat.
