Abruzzo is a region in the center of Italy and it offers a huge variety of options for an authentic Italian holiday. Abruzzo stretches from the heart of the Apennines to the Adriatic sea, offering landscapes that vary from high mountain peaks, to gentle hills and a beautiful coastline.

Abruzzo is known as “the region of the parks”, as you can find numerous natural parks which give protection and habitat to plants and animals typical of the area, such as the golden eagle, the wolf, the chamois and the marsican bear. Abruzzo National Park is the most ancient park of the Apennines and it is mainly covered with beech forests, clearings and waterfalls. Scanno and Pescasseroli are two villages in the heart of the park from where multiple trekking trails start, that will reveal the botanic paradise of the park.
Ancient borgos, archeological sites, castles, sanctuaries, abbeys, rock churches, hermitages and caves are the frame to the beautiful Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Park, where the nature is full of forests, springs, waterfalls, meadows, plateaus, peaks and rocky walls. It is included in the provinces of Teramo, Rieti, L’Aquila and Pescara and it is house of Corno Grande del Gran Sasso (2914 m), the highest peak of Gran Sasso massif.
In Majella national park you can find mount Amaro (2795 m, peak) and it is located among the provinces of Chieti, Pescara and L’Aquila. Majella Park is famous for its 500 km of hiking trails through mountains, caves and borgos.

Abruzzo is also famous all over the world for the production of wine: Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Cerasuolo, Controguerra… These are just some of the most amazing wines produced on the hills of this region. You will find numerous vineyards and wine producers, each one with their own peculiarity and centenary traditions and secrets. You can visit and taste wine or enjoy a nice bike tour riding through the vineyard.

The Adriatic coast is another destination that can’t be missed. And fortunately you can visit it with the project Bike to Coast. It is an ongoing project involving 131 km of Abruzzo coast and aiming to be the longest cycle route in Italy. The route involves the provinces of Teramo, Pescara and Chieti, passing through 19 towns and along the Adriatic coast. A tour that will hardly be forgotten.

Abruzzo is also proud host of some of the most beautiful borgos and amazing art cities in Italy. For example L’Aquila, the city of the hermit Pope, based on a hillside in the middle of a narrow valley, surrounded by Gran Sasso massif and with a maze of narrow streets, lined with Baroque and Renaissance buildings and churches. Or Teramo, famous for being the old Interamnia, city between two rivers, so called by the ancient Romans because it is crossed by Tordino and Vezzola rivers, and only 20 km from the coast and 40 km from Gran Sasso peaks. The worthwhile art cities are many more, and the best way to visit them is with a relaxing bike tour.

What our guests say about us:
Tailor-made bike tour in Abruzzo
“I just wanted to let you know that we had the most amazing 4 days mountain biking in Abruzzo, what a beautiful part of the world. The route was prefect and just long enough days and some great off road biking, we loved it. The hotels were all good and food delicious especially that first place you booked for us. I have never seen so much food for dinner! Santo Stefano is such a beautiful village. The wildflowers were amazing and the castle and castellated villages too.” (May 2017, V.S. UK)
