The hotel is located on top of a charming hill (600 m above sea level) with an eagle's nest position. This aristocratic village is built on travertine rock overlooked by an imposing fortress. Such incredible engineering work is perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape, which encloses both the Gran Sasso Mountain and the Adriatic Sea (22 km away). Visitors looking for out-of-the-ordinary accommodation are welcome at this hotel, an ancient and elegant 17th-century palace featuring high-class and comfortable interiors decorated with the utmost care. The 17 bedrooms are dens of tranquillity, with elegant interiors and all possible comforts: Internet access, satellite TV, telephone, minibar, hairdryer, as well as courtesy toiletries. Guests can practice at the ski slopes (15 km away), go climbing on the travertine walls (400 m away), enjoy horse riding (4 km away), hiking and mountain biking, take a guided tour exploring rivers and waterfalls or a nocturnal trip by starlight, or make use of the tennis court (200 m away) and football pitch (3 km away). The restaurant offers unique local dishes based on ancient recipes whose rich tastes, in keeping with the gastronomic traditions of Abruzzo, wisely combine wholesome ingredients with a touch of lightness and creativity.
