|Penne Vestea area|
|Abruzzo, History and nature,: The most delightful region of central Italy The symbol of the Abruzzo is the 'GUERRIERO DI CAPESTRANO', who is in fact a type of ancient guerrilla fighter found in this area pre Roman times. Many different cultures have traversed this region since then. The Romans of course but also the Vikings, Normans and Spanish. These cultural influences combined with the regions out standing natural beauty have left a completely unique heritage and natural environment to be enjoyed by all. The scenery is unlike any other in Italy with the Apennine Mountains highest peaks so close to the sea. The two mountains ( Gran Sasso and Maiella) many months covered with snow ,both reach over ten thousand feet and over look the warm waters of the Adriatic. The Abruzzo has the largest natural parks in Italy (over 100,000 acres) and the most well protected. The parks cover two thirds of the total surface of Abruzzo no other region in Europe can say the same.|

|(1)There were 6 of us staying just for 3 nights as part of our tour and once we were there in the beautiful mountains of Abruzzo, I wish we had booked for longer!
(2)The house has been tastefully renovated by the owner and was lacking in nothing. A lot of thought had been given to the facilities and equipment necessary for self-catering, including BBQing on the roof terrace which was just amazing.
(3)I would certainly recommend a stay here if you want a typical unadulterated mountain village with it's breathtaking views and tranquility.
|The Marche / Abruzzo region|
Abruzzo,castles and wild animals.: The other fine jewel of the Abruzzo is the miles and miles of lovely golden sandy beaches, (133 kilometers). The towns and villages of the area are full of history with many legendary forts and castles. They seem to top most of the hills and mountains and a lot are very old, with wonderful differing styles of architecture. In the protected national parks there are many rare and endangered species of plants and animals to name some of the animals: Marsiano brown bears, Lynx, Apennine wolves, Chamois deer and Golden eagles. There are also in amongst the mountains waterfalls and lakes, lovely beach woods and even a glacier the 'Calderone' the most southerly in Europe. One of the other most famous sites is the Mt Sirente meteorite crater one of the most beautiful in the world as it is between two lakes. It would be easy to go on and list a wonderful selection of things to do and see, much better to come and see for yourself.
