Bustling cosmopolitan and historical cities

The Abruzzo region is not only a green region but also a region which offers a rich historical and artistic heritage. One of the most beautiful cities is undoubtedly L'Aquila. Unfortunately, much of the historic centre was destroyed after a tragic earthquake but there is still plenty for you and your family to do on your self-catering holidays. We also recommend visiting some fascinating cities in this region: Atri, one of the oldest Italian cities, Chieti, Teramo, Campli, Sulmona and many others.

Rome accommodation

Day trips to Rome from your villa

Rather than seeking apartments in Rome, why not rent a spacious villa in Abruzzo, just East of Italy's capital? Although Rome wasn't built in a day, it certainly doesn't take longer to enjoy the city's highlights. Enjoy the rolling countryside, tranquil landsacpe and relaxing ambience in Abruzzo and make a day trip to Rome if you would like a taste of the lively restaurants and bars, astonishing architecture and historical sites that are known worldwide. Accommodation in Rome can be hard to find, but you could be roaming Abruzzo's stunning olive groves by day instead and find yourself basking in the glow of the Trevi fountain or sharing a bottle of wine down one of Rome's winding streets by night.

Holiday rentals Italy whatever the weather

The climate is very special in Abruzzo and is favoured by many holidaymakers, perhaps even over that in Tuscany or Rome. In summer, the weather is hot and dry, whilst winter is cooled down by winds from the Apennine mountains, meaning in Abruzzo, you can experience a real range of weather from your villas in Italy. There is even the chance of substantial snowfall, making this a picturesque destination in the winter months, too.
