About the neighbourhood
The province of L'Aquila is in the west of Abruzzo and there we found our dream in the little town of Pacentro, listed as one of the 100 most beautiful villages in Italy.

Pacentro is a gateway to the Majella mountain range and the well preserved castle was built to guard the passes above, but it had been inhabited back through roman time and into pre-history, as nearby caves with paintings illustrate.

It is very easy to reach and is just a few kilometres outside the larger town of Sulmona with many shops and a railway station. A few kilometres further is the main autostrada from Rome to Pescara. Abuzzo Airport in Pescara is about an hour away and the nearest Rome airport is less than two hours away.

A car is advised to make the most of the area to explore but there are frequent bu...

How to get there
Airport: Pescara Airport: 80.0 km
Railway: Sulmona: 8.0 km
Arriving at Pescara airport is perfect, a nice small airport yet right inside the city itself with huge supermarkets and many stores everywhere.

From the UK Ryanair flies there from Stansted and you can also connect through other airports via Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt and Milan.

Coming through Rome Ciampino is closest (less than two hours and mostly on a fantasticly scenic autostrade) but Da Vinci just another 20 mins or so.

From Rome you can also catch a shuttle bus from either airport into Rome and transfer to bus or train to Sulmona and then local bus up to Pacentro.

From Pescara you can always take the shuttle bus to the railway station in the centre and catch a train to Sulmona.

Worth noting the train station in Sulmona is about
