Why the owner chose a home in this location
After spending time looking around Italy we fell in love Abruzzo and the beautiful walled town of Sulmona. The Abruzzo region has so much to offer the holiday makers who want to experience the real Italian culture. The Gran Sasso & Maiella Mountains both have a mass expanse of National Parks to explore which offer numerous leisure activities including walking, rock climbing, skiing, swimming, horse-riding, bird watching, exploring ancient villages, monuments and churches, wine tasting and eating delicious local produce. And on the edge of the Maiella National Park with soaring peaks and incredible wild life including bears and wolfs. Here the sightseeing views are breath-taking of the Abruzzo region at its best. Sulmona is a small city walled boutique town offering the best of Italy.

The region has 21 ski areas with 368 km. of runs. Located in the highest region of the Apennines, these ski areas are at heights nearly comparable to many Alpine resorts. Because of their proximity to the Adriatic and winter precipitation patterns, they often have more snow than the Alps. Abruzzo also is popular for cross country skiing, especially on the high plain of the Gran Sasso as well as the Majella. Lift passes tend to be cheaper than the Alps. One day at Rocarasso currently costs 34 euros. Rocarasso is only a thirty five minutes drive from Sulmona and is suitable for beginners and the more experience skiers.
The beaches along the Adriatic Coast 45 minutes away by car are all blue-flagged and among the cleanest, most family-friendly in Italy, safe, clean and mostly sandy beaches protected by breakwaters, with sun loungers and umbrellas for hire, cafes and bars. Elsewhere are plenty of quiet coves and bays with warm, shallow waters..
