  • Charming, secluded beautifull villa in tiny village in Tuscan hills

    "What a charming most beautifull villa in a tiny hamlet in the Tuscan hills. Surrounded by the Fighine fortress (now privately owned) a few homes and a darling little churche (not in use but can be visited). All rooms are very well appointed and comfortable with a working fire place and relaxing living room area. The kitchen has all of the necessary cooking tools and appliances in addition to a washing machine. The two bedrooms had their own shower equiped bathrooms and were imaculately clean just like the rest of the villa. To our surprise a high speep wifi had just been installed and it was a bonus that we did not expect allowing us to keep in touch with family and friends back home. Considering that it was late in the season the pool had been removed. The grounds and gazebo with table and chairs were well maintained including a BBQ. There are basically 2 dirt road accesses to the hamlet with pretty villages within 20 minutes to half an hour with great restaurants (very reasonalble) especially Daniella in Castiganio di Bagni. Great base for day trips in both Tuscany and Umbria. The info provided by both the property manager Linda and the owners Grazzia and Cesare was very helpfull in deciding on our daily itinerary. Crucial to the enjoyment was the easy communications with Linda the property manager, always responding to our queries within a day or two. The owners were very nice and helpfull. When we could not operate the washing machine Cesare was there the next morning to fix it. We were also fortunate to meet Linda as she was in the area to arrange a wedding. She organized a cooking class for us at another villa. It was fun and gave us a chance to exchange info with other guests. Thank you to Linda, Grazzia and Cesare for making our vacation memorable. I would recommend this villa for 2 couples or small family wanting privacy and to relax."

  • Amazing updated place to stay in Lucca

    "This place was gorgeous! I loved how it was decorated and it was very comfortable and modern and clean. I felt like I was actually at a nice home and not just a rental. It was very convenient to get to all the places in the area. And there is enough space for all of 4 of us to stay comfortably. But it still had the charm of Italy. I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a clean comfortable and beautiful place."

Abruzzo Travel Tips

Rural Italian Charm at Abbruzzo Vacation Rentals

Abruzzo is one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Far from the busy tourist towns of the north, Abruzzo is a quiet rural gem. It’s filled with spectacularly beautiful natural scenery, medieval castles, monasteries, quaint villages and Roman ruins. For those that take the time to explore the region, you’ll wonder why it’s not promoted more. But perhaps it’s the quietness that is really part of its charm. The beautiful rural setting, friendly villages and ancient buildings almost make you feel as though you have taken a trip back in time. After spending a few days in your vacation home, you may feel you never want to leave. Abruzzo is a region that attracts nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and people with a keen interest in Italian culture.

Abruzzo Accommodation Options

Renting a home in Abruzzo is the best way to soak up the culture of the region. Choose from lovingly restored ancient villas to cozy farm cottages. Many have sweeping views over the Adriatic Sea. You can sit and enjoy meals alfresco, soaking up the amazing views. This is the ideal destination for a romantic vacation or honeymoon. In this quiet rural atmosphere, you may feel like you are in your own private piece of paradise.

Activities and Sites near Abruzzo Villas

Abruzzo has arguably one of the richest deposits of natural and cultural attractions in Italy. Almost a third of the region is protected national park land. It is one of the few regions where you can see bears, wolves and chamois. Nature walks, hiking and climbing are popular activities among visitors. There are routes that can accommodate novices as well as more challenging alpine routes.

The Appenines are the tall glacial mountains that separate Abruzzo from Rome and western Italy. The region has good quality snowfalls each winter and hosts 21 different ski areas. Some areas are almost comparable in height to that of the Alps. Cross country skiing is popular, especially on the elevated plain of Campo Imperatore.

L’Aquila is the region’s largest city and most well known for its medieval architecture. Its most famous landmarks include a 16th-century castle and the fountain with 99 spouts. The fountain represents the 99 villages that united to form the city. There are several beautiful old churches in L’Aquila. Perhaps the most striking is the Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio which has an impressive gothic interior.

Sulmona is a town famous for its sugared almonds which are known as confetti. Two churches worth visiting to view their architecture are the 13th-century San Francesco delle Scarpe and the 11th-century cathedral of San Panfilo.

Pescara has several miles of beachfront promenade and sandy beaches suitable for swimming and suntanning. From there, you can take a drive up the coast and enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery.

Travelling to and Around Abruzzo

Abruzzo has its own international airport, located just outside of Pescara. Low-cost European airlines have daily scheduled flights that arrive and depart from here. As an alternative, you can route via Rome and rent a car to drive to Abruzzo. Once in the region, it is best to have your own car to get around in. There are three main roadways that connect Abruzzo with other parts of Italy. All are toll roads and information on the toll fees can be obtained from the car rental companies when you collect the car.

The rail system is not known for its reliability and bus schedules between the towns do not operate that frequently. Driving through the countryside of Abruzzo, be aware of livestock that may meander across the road. The area is a large sheep farming district and it’s not uncommon to find a flock absentmindedly standing in the middle of a road.
