About the neighbourhood
Rapino is one of the official mountain villages of the Majelletta, a short drive to the ski resorts of Passo Lanciano and Mamma Rosa. The area is a national park full of wildlife and history, a wolf sanctuary, endless mountain hikes and of course skiing and the Adriatic beaches. If you are looking for an away from it all holiday or a romantic hideaway then the Majella Garden is the place for you. The town of Rapino is close to the mountains, beaches and towns of Abruzzo but there is enough distance to give you a feeling of tranquility and relaxation and the true rural Italian experience. The town has several well stocked grocery stores for your self catering apartment but also many restaurants and bars within walking distance of the apartment if cooking is not part of your vacation pla...
How to get there
Driving from the airport in Pescara (Sambuceto) take either the SS263 or SS81 to Rapino, both will offer good signage and an interesting ride. Other options would be arriving in Rome and taking the coach or train to Pescara or Chieti and arranging a rental car, if not take a lovely drive through the mountains from Rome to Rapino, about 2.5 hours depending on the weather and traffic. There are many places to stop en route and if you are in no rush call into Sulmona for a look round, a good break to the dive across from Rome.
