In Italy's long and narrow penninsula is situated Abruzzo, which is a breath of fresh air. This region is sparsely populated and stands out for its majestic beauty with vast unspoilt wilderness and the highest peaks of the Apennines.

Seaside resorts line the Adriatic coast, excellent hill towns such as Chieti, Penne and Atri recapture the Italian Renaissance and there are plenty of walled towns with piazza's and monument to rival its neighbouring but more popular regions.

The Gran Sasso offers excellent skiing and hiking opportunities and in the south of the region, its clutch of national parks are a highlight of Abruzzo, offering outstanding scenery and walking opportunities. Abruzzo is often an overlooked region but what it offers is a real taste of Italy with the majority of tourists of Italian origin. They come for the scenery, the vast open spaces, the freshness of the air, the food and the warmth of the locals.

There are plenty of old farms for sale and small village properties requiring refurbishment. Property bargain hunters should keep their eyes on this region as prices are low and well below the average in Italy but with connections increasing at the local Pescara airport and intense media focus in the UK, prices are set to rise.

How to get there

The region is served by Pescara, which has daily flights to London Stansted but it is also possible to fly into Rome and drive across to Abruzzo.

Abruzzo is connected by the A14 motorway running north-south along the Adriatic coast and by the A24 motorway to Rome.
