See Maiella National Park, castles, medieval, towns, taste great food and drink.
Abruzzo is the place where Italians go on holiday and it is just the way they like it, off the tourist track and unchanged. 1/3 of the region is national and regional parks; it has 129 kilometres of sandy beaches and 21 ski areas.
Villa Maieletta sits in rolling hills with the dramatic backdrop of the Maiella Mountain range, on a quiet country lane close to the historic hill-top town of Palombaro, whose distant church bells provide an evocative reminder of past times. The 2011 movie, “Lost in Italy,” was filmed in Palombaro.
Experience the rhythms of rural life around us, from the porchetta van and cafe culture to grape harvest celebrations and Festa month in August. Make the Villa your base for the winter skiing season from December to April. The world class ski resort of Roccaraso, home of the World Junior Championships in 2012, is under an hour away. Retire to your apartment to relax in a luxurious environment of classic Italian splendour or while away an hour on our antique American Pool table.
We are situated amidst great cycling and motorcycling country. The Giro D'Italia often visits the area; in 2010 it came within a few kilometres of us.
At Villa Maieletta you can be in the mountains in the morning, on the beach in the afternoon, and dine in the countryside under the stars. The Villa is an ideal retreat for couples, those who love the outdoor life and aficionados of architecture and history.
