Interaction with guests
I am an Italian photographer in love Abruzzo. Personally I welcome my guests but after giving all the information I leave them in absolute freedom. I remain available for any need. I have another house in the country for my husband and me. We moved to Capestrano permanently from August 2016 after working in the North of Italy. We love the quiet life now and we like to observe the change of seasons. We also produce a small amount of olive oil that we like to leave the house for guests.
The house is situated in a quiet part of the country. At night the village is all lit up, and only this view is worth a trip. A 1 km from the village, in the Valley, flows the River Tirino, which is a district of the National Park Gran Sasso-Monti della Laga, where you can go canoeing and if most experts with his or stroll along the banks and meditate in nature. In the square you will find two small market, in the morning also fruits and vegetables from a local man. There are pharmacy, bank, two beauticians, an ice cream shop and a pub restaurant. In the valley is an excellent restaurant to taste the crayfish. The people are lovely. Capestrano is exactly what you would expect in an old traditional Italian hilltop village. The little houses are squeezed cheek to jowl and extremely quirky. If you want to see the real Italy then don't hesitate to visite Capestrano.
It is better to have a car available as places to visit are many! At the same distance of about 35 km you can visit both the mountain city of L'Aquila mail to 725 meters above sea level with its splendid Campo Imperatore 1800 meters altitude accessible by car (in summer) that the service cable car located Fonte Cerreto, or you can visit the other, more modern, seaside city, Pescara, on the Adriatic coast, lined with boutiques like cities like Rome and Milan, seafood restaurants or for people like me who does not eat meat also of great restaurants vegetarian. In the high Apennine mountains, at 25 minutes, the villages of Calascio with its ancient Rocca, famous for the delicious cheese and setting for many films like "Lady Hawke" with actors Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer, "Francesco" the Italian director Liliana Cavani, " King David "with Richard Gere and the most recent" The American "with George Cloney; the village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, known tourist destination, famous for lentils and full of local craft shops.
Near the river is the beautiful church of San Pietro ad Oratorium 1000. Also you can visit Sulmona, the city of the famous confetti and many other medieval villages. The nature of Abruzzo is green and lush. It produces an excellent oil and a great wine that you can buy and bring back. There are so many other things to do, but at home you will have brochures with information to discover this region, to eat and what to do. Now you just have to take the plane. The nearest airport is at Pescara, only 25 minutes by car, or in Rome, in an hour and a half.

Other things to note
The rental is for the full house and the whole garden, the perfect place to relax and watch the magnificent view of the valley and surrounding mountains while enjoying a good Montepulciano d'Abruzzo under the summer sky full of stars. In the Valle del Tirino, a couple of kilometers from home, flows a river that you can navigate with experienced guides.
All around is an explosion of wonderful nature, still unexplored and wild: there are beautiful trails and you can also book a guide.
But a few km you can also visit cities such as Sulmona, or shop in the nearby Pescara and break for a few hours the tranquility of the village.
