Perfect location near to Sulmona. Villa very comfortable and set in peaceful surroundings. Peter and Rita who were standing in for Dougie and Michelle (owners) were excellent and gave us lots of help and information. Also fresh nuts! Would definitely return.

About the neighbourhood

The town offers a wide range of shops, boutiques and restaurants.There are also excellent sports facilities including tennis courts, a swimming pool and horse riding. About 10 mins outside Sulmona is an excellent waterpark with shaded picnic area, ideal for a day out.

Getting around
By far the most convenient way of getting around the local area & Abruzzo in general is by private/hire car. However, there are good bus & train links to both Rome on the West coast & Pescara on the East coast. Sulmona has a large parking area at the train station & it's totally free to park for as long as you like.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Pescara: 60.0 km
Railway: Sulmona: 5.0 km
Ferry: Pescara: 60.0 km
Getting there is straight forward, if you're coming direct you can either fly to Pescara or one of Rome's 2 airports. EasyJet, Ryan Air & Jet2 all provide cheap flights to Italy, Pescara airport being around 40 mins from the apartment and the airports at Rome being 2 and 2 1/2 hours away.

To get out & about and explore the region fully, it's best to have use of a car. Hire prices vary a great deal, however, EasyCar, Atlas Choice and Travel Supermarket & Sicily by Car provide a good service at a reasonable price. See our website for further information and links on flights and car hire.

If you decide to take the train, we recommend the early train from Termini station in Rome. The route winds through the hills separating Lazio from Abruzzo before descending s...
