The Abruzzo overlooks the Adriatic Sea and has a long, sandy beach, wide and golden, above all in the Province of Teramo, that can be reached in few minutes from our B&B. Ideal destination for summer holidays, the closest beaches to our venue slowly goes into the sea, allowing also to the less expert to dive in total safeness. They stretch in lenght, so that it could be possible to comfortably bathing both on the free beachand in the private beach resorts. Especially in summer, the coast offers a wide variety of events that entertain tourists: concerts, street markets, food festivals, folk events, traditional fireworks above water and much more. Among the most known bathing cities along the coast, we mention Roseto degli Abruzzi, Alba Adriatica, Giulianova, Pineto.
Our B&B in Abruzzo is close to the sea but make it possible to reach in just few minutes and easily also the mountain. In every season, indeed, we suggest to have a walk at the feet of the majestic Gran Sasso, also known as "the Sleeping giant" due to its profile. Located into the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga Park, this massif dominates with the Corno Grande, the Corno Piccolo (where there is the Ghiacciaio del Calderone, the second most southern glacier of Europe), Monte Camicia, Monte Prena, the wonderful upland of Campo Imperatore and other peaks, that is possible to explore and climb, discovering breathtaking panoramas.
In the surroundings of our B&B, territory also offers the chance to discover and visit charming villages and small cities of art. Among them, one of the most beautiful and striking is for sure Atri, located over majestic natural calanchi (ravines), that in this area take extraordinary shapes, and rich in buildings and Medioeval squares. Piazza del Duomo and Piazza dei Duchi d'Acquaviva excel for their beauty and monumentality, with the many buildings that feature the historical center, and call for a lot of tourists all year long, also thanks to typical and folk events such as the Faugni, on December the 8th. By moving to the hinterland, there are a lot of other villages with a great landscape, historical and artistic interest: Castelbasso, where in summer is held an art festival; Castellalto; Campli; Civitella del Tronto, known for the last Bourbon fortress; Teramo; Castelli.
The specific morphology of the Abruzzo make our Region rich of typical local items and products and food and wine excellencies. Local recipes recall the ancient agri-pastoral tradition, typical of the hill and mounty areas, and the marine one. One passes from the strong taste of cold cuts, cheeses, ovine meat to the delicate smells of the sea with the brodetto soup. Among the typical dishes to be tasted, we suggest you the arrosticini, the fried cheese, the "mazzarelle", the timballo, the "scrippelle 'mbsse", the "virtù", typical dish cooked on the occasion of the 1st of May, the fish-based "guazzetto". The cooking richness of our Region is equal to that one of wines, known in Italy to the quality of its products.
Between sea and mountain, our Region gives the chance to be explored and lived far and wide, thanks to its many natural treasures. Think about the upland of Campo Imperatore, that is wonderful in any season, and to places of uncommon beauty such as rocca Calascio, to the Lake of Campotosto, to the green areas in the Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, just to have an idea of what the Abruzzo is. But, there is a lot more that fascinates tourists in the South and in the West areas of our Region: the Cerrano marine area, the Trabocchi Coast, the Majella, the lakes of Scanno, Barrea, San Domenico, the Abruzzo, Latium and Molise National Park, the Majella National Park and much more...
