“A big park with a sea view”. This slogan fully reflects the charme of the Abruzzo Region. The sea and the mountains, an hour away from each other, and between these two extremes the sweet hills with their old towns rich of culture, traditions and artistic treasures. The famous pottery in Castelli, the fortress of Civitella, the artistic cities of Teramo, Atri or the region chief town L'Aquila - here we are already in the Parco Nazionale d'Abruzzo, with its breathtaking and still unspoiled landscapes. With more than 1/3 of protected surface, Abruzzo is the “Green Region of Europe”. The profile of the mountains - of which the Gran Sasso is the most conspicuous (2912 m.) reflects into the lakes; here live bears, chamois, otters, lynxes and wolves. In the most secluded valleys you can find medieval hermitages and religious refuges sculpted in the rock. For the lovers of underground landscapes the Grotte di Stiffe, offer a spectacular view. The Sabbia d’Oro Residence is not only the ideal starting point to discover this fascinating region but also to travel daily to Rome, the Tremiti Islands or to pilgrimage places such as San Giovanni Rotondo, Loreto or Assisi.
