Spring Retreat in central Italy

Abruzzo region is full of spiritual churches, monuments, cemeteries, museums, monasteries and fortified villages. There are many famous castles for example Rocca Calascio, Castello dell’Aquila, and Rocca Scalegna, famous churches such as Chiesa della Madonna delle Grazie which overlooks our village! There are also many exciting ancient sites with the potential to experience the history and the beauty of Italy. The high energy atmosphere amplifies any experience here.

Abruzzo is the birthplace of the poet D’Annunzio, writers and philosophers like Silone and Croce, painters like Michetti, Palizzi and Cascella and many other artists. We’re confident that you’ll find our village, Abruzzo Borgo, to be the perfect place for your soulful journey.

Abruzzo Borgo is a one-of-a-kind eco-touristic village nestled in 25 acres of historic, visually breathtaking landscape in central Italy. We’re perfectly positioned between the shimmering Adriatic coastline and soaring Apennines mountain range. We offer cozy shared apartment accommodations with two, or three bedrooms; a terraced barbecue area with an amphitheater for socializing, and an infinity pool overlooking the town of Alanno and stunning mountain views (open between May and September).

It’s a time and place for self-discovery while cocooned by Mother Nature. Abruzzo Borgo offers a slice of heaven where you can slow down, reconnect with your inner self, and let your mind, body and soul fully recharge while enjoying time with your loved ones.

We look forward to welcoming you to this special place!

At the Abruzzo Borgo, you'll find yourself immersed in nature, far away from crowds of tourists. With a high standard for cleanliness and sanitation, and with plenty of space to stretch out and adventure, our property is ideal for a socially distanced respite from the demanding, hustle-and-bustle nature of the current global climate.

Imagine yourself here!

The Abruzzo region stretches from the Apennine mountains to the Adriatic Sea. The nearby coastline offers a wide variety of beaches, from smooth-stoned pebble beaches to fine white sandy beaches. In the winter, the mountains are snow-capped, and there are 22 ski resorts nearby. Abruzzo is composed of three National Parks and is steeped in history, with picturesque castles and small chapels dotted around the countryside. The villages maintain their medieval feel, and visitors can explore some of the fortresses built to protect the civilians. The local people are lovely—warm, hospitable and welcoming, making visitors feel at home—and it’s a unique opportunity to experience what it’s like to live in traditional Italy, as yet unspoiled by mass tourism.

How to get here:

It is best to book early! Prices can go up steeply nearer the time!

Ryanair flights from London, Frankfurt, Barcelona, and other European cities in September start at €20  and fly into Pescara (the nearest airport to the Borgo) and Rome. Alitalia has special September for flights into Rome.

One of the best travel-booking sites is farecompare.com. Even if you are not with your group there are busses that run every 2 hours from Rome airports. We can pick you up from there, so don't worry if you can't get a flight at the same time as all your friends. Often you can get cheaper flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; you can take us up on our offer to add extra days at the Borgo and actually end up paying less than you might have if you traveled later!
