Villa Ulignano was in a beautiful quiet location, surrounded by mountains, vines and olive trees. The apartment had everything you could need and Michelle and Dougie were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they were full of local knowledge. My husband spent most of his time cycling which he raved on about and he did...

Management response:

Thank you very much for your kind comments about us, Sulmona & Abruzzo in general. We're glad that you loved the area and of course it would be lovely to have you all back again one day, and the bike. The boys had great fun playing with Lily & Zoe. Kind regards, Michelle, Dougie, Jake & Josh.

Near the picturesque town of Sulmona, but set in quiet farmland with the mountains of the adjacent national parks as a backdrop. The towns are packed with impressive ertuscan style architecture, people watching piazzas and largely pedestrianised medinas. The hill side towns tumble off the sides of impressive mountains and sweeping vistas. And the wildlife is outstanding: we saw a...

Thank you very much for your kind words, it's a pleasure to have you stay at Villa Ulignano. We're still a little jealous of the bear sighting but we'll get over it. We hope you will continue to enjoy Abruzzo as much we do. Kind regards, Dougie, Michelle & the boys

About the neighbourhood
The town of Sulmona is situated in the centre of the Peligna Valley at the foot of the Maiella mountain range. The birth place of the great poet Ovid, Sulmona preserves its heritage of monuments, architecture and works of art. Today the town is also an important agriculture and commercial centre and is famous the world over for its confetti (sugar coated almond candies), and for its goldsmiths. The town offers a wide range of shops, boutiques and restaurants.There are also excellent sports facilities including tennis courts, a swimming pool and horse riding. About 10 mins outside Sulmona is an excellent waterpark with shaded picnic area, ideal for a day out. Lake Scanno is just a 20 minute drive, while the winter resort town of Roccaraso, central Italy's largest winter resort with sn... more
Getting around
By far the most convenient way of getting around the local area & Abruzzo in general is by private/hire car. However, there are good bus & train links to both Rome on the West coast & Pescara on the East coast. Sulmona has a large parking area at the train station & it's totally free to park for as long as you like.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Pescara: 60.0 km
Railway: Sulmona: 5.0 km
Ferry: Pescara: 60.0 km
Getting there is straight forward, if you're coming direct you can either fly to Pescara or one of Rome's 2 airports. EasyJet, Ryan Air & Jet2 all provide cheap flights to Italy, Pescara airport being around 40 mins from the apartment and the airports at Rome being 2 and 2 1/2 hours away.

To get out & about and explore the region fully, it's best to have use of a car. Hire prices vary a great deal, however, EasyCar, Atlas Choice and Travel Supermarket & Sicily by Car provide a good service at a reasonable price. See our website for further information and links on flights and car hire.

If you decide to take the train, we recommend the early train from Termini station in Rome. The route winds through the hills separating Lazio from Abruzzo before descending s...
