Located in central, eastern part of Italy, scenic Abruzzo does a splendid job of combining two extremes: rugged snowcapped mountain peaks and powdery sand beaches where sun-worshipers soak for hours. In between these two is a series of dramatic mountain foothills that enclose and hide undiscovered villages and virtually untouched gems of the local Italian culture. Indeed, Abruzzo is one of the least tainted, most-authentic living monuments to Italy’s vibrant past. A rental Abruzzo villa for your Abruzzo holidays is an excellent way to get a feel for this fascinating culture. The Gran Sasso National Park is home to the Corno Grande, a giant stone precipice jutting sharply past the cloud line. It makes for a stern challenge among those who love day hikes, yet despite the energetic force necessary to conquer this mountain, its picturesque grandeur is hard to resist. The Corno Grande is the highest peak in the Italian Apennines mountain range, and holds Europe’s southernmost glacier, Calderone. Book a holiday villa Abruzzo or chalet Abruzzo Molise in the foothills and take in the sight of its magnificent peak in the morning light.
In the wintertime, travellers flock to Abruzzo’s nearly two-dozen ski resorts and fill the area's ski rental cabins. Favorites include Campo Felice, Roccaraso, and Campo Imperatore. As the snow melts, spring, summer and fall activities include horseback riding (and, again, hiking) on the extensive series of well-kept trails carved throughout the Abruzzo’s pristine national parks. One of the most breathtaking of Abruzzo’s hidden villages is Sulmona, which offers majestic views of Majella Mountain amidst roadways bursting with wildflowers and ancient medieval historical sites. Rent a car and discover as many villages as you can in the Abruzzo, you’ll be one of the few visitors who does! Depending on where your accommodation Abruzzo is located you can also travel around the neighbouring regions Marche, Umbria, Campania, Apulia or Lazio. The famous capital of Italy - Rome - is located in Lazio. And do not forget to try the delicious Italian food as often as you can. You might even want to try out your own Italian recipes in your self catering Abruzzo chalet. That's what makes an Abruzzo Travel unforgettable!
