Green and Just a Short Drive from Rome Abruzzo is just a short drive from Rome and considered the greenest region in Europe with three National Parks and many protected areas and species such as bears, wolves, lynx and Golden Eagles.

Mountains and a Coastline Abruzzo spreads from the Apennine mountains to the Adriatic sea so that you can admire the highest mountains of the Apennines, the Corno Grande directly from its coast. It is this huge variety of landscapes and seascapes that make it an ideal place to have a painting holiday.

A Different Approach Trabocchi: Charming old fishing huts created in the eighteenth century that protrude ‘into the sea’ and provide a safer way to fish in the Adriatic. They make a perfect traditional base for fishing experiences, cooking, painting and pottery classes and are unique to Abruzzo.

A Gastronomic Heritage Abruzzo and her four provinces: Teramo, L’Aquila, Pescara and Chieti have a very diverse gastronomic heritage that includes wine, pasta alla chitarra (homemade pasta worked with a particular instrument called guitar), extra-virgin olive oil, cheeses, salami, truffle, saffron and fish soups. Explore it through our cooking holidays.

Natural Hospitality Authenticity and natural hospitality of the people, the value and warmth of human relationships, tranquility, slow pace of life.
