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.

Regardless the time of the year the house and their owners gives you a warm welcome! And above that the surroundings are beautiful and even Rome is within reach by car, train or bus! The house provides you with everything you need. You can stay in the sun, in the shadow or in the swimming pool. The surroundings provides you with a whole range of activities or just a walk to bar of Appignano for a cup of coffee or a glass of the local wine. In short: we really can recommend Casa Lumaca for your next holiday!

Nice building. Stewart very helpful and always available by phone. No cable or satellite TV or internet yet but Stewart helped us obtain internet capabilities. We do plan to rent again for next trip.
