Great Abruzzo holiday

  • 5 of 5
Great location, although approaching the house by car is a bit demanding (last 100 m - narrow, steep road among houses and walls with hairpin bends). The house is very big, very well equipped and very clean. Views from the terrace - stunning, all day long. Perfect contact with the owner. The only little nuisance of our stay were little flies causing itchy skin irritations. The surroundings are really beautiful and not crowded by tourists, hiking in Gran Sasso and Maiella was wonderful.Definitely recommended!

Fantastic, Cosy Villa with panoramic view

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in the fantastic nature of the Abruzzes in one of the sweetest villages-Capestrano. The stone villa has a very good standard with all necessary comfort. It's a very charming, cosy and authentic house. Bathrooms and kitchen as well as all the bedrooms are in very good condition. We especially enjoyed the calmity, the smell of lilac and our chilling cave bedroom. Everybody who is into cosy, rustic houses in italian nature will love the Casa dei Papaveri. It's a great area for hiking and simply for enjoying the nature. A charming place about 10 min from Capestrano is Bussi sul Tirino with delicious pizzas, hearty people and lively green quaint alleys. This region is so chilling - an unexpected holiday highlight.

If you are looking to escape the stresses of life for a few days then Capestrano in Abruzzo is the ideal getaway offering a taste of the real Italy away from the usual tourist hotspots. Capestrano is a pretty hilltop town overlooking the Tirino valley surrounded by the mountains of the Gran Sasso, ideally situated for exploring the National Parks or the sandy beaches of the Adriatic. Capestrano offers plenty of historic interest in its medieval and renaissance architecture and medieval fortifications can still be seen in the ruins of the old city wall. Piccolomini Castle is the highest point in Capestrano and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There are 21 ski slopes in the area within easy reach. Roccarasso is the largest, host to European competitions, and includes facilities such as an ice rink and health centre. Tourist attractions nearby include Roccacalascio and Castel del Monte where 'The American' was filmed starring George Clooney. Various local festivals throughout summer months such as Chick Pea festival in Navelli and Lentil festival in Santa Stefano. Sulmona hosts a jousting competition in August. Various local markets offer a wide range of fresh fruit and veg, jewellery, shoes and clothing. There really is something in this area for everyone.
