Discover Abruzzo

Washed by the Adriatic Sea to the East and protected by the Gran Sasso Massif to the West, Abruzzo is the only Italian region where the salty sea breeze mixes with the healthy air of the highest peaks of the Apennine mountains. An inspiring landscape that offers not only unspoiled nature trails and stunning views, but also an extraordinary travel experience that helps to enjoy and discover the history, the art and the flavours of this wonderful land.

Abruzzo. The region with a Thousand Faces.

Abruzzo is the only region in Italy that allows you to leave from the beach and reach 9800 feet in a few kilometres. Colle Veroni is perfectly nestled between the sea and the mountains, in a strategic location that allows you to reach in a short time both the shores of the Adriatic sea and the top of the Gran Sasso, the highest peak of the Apennine range.

Activities & Excursions

Some suggestions in the nearby surroundings

Colle Veroni is a place where you can rest and enjoy fresh air, about 40 km from magnificent peaks of Gran Sasso and just 10 km from the “Spiaggia d’Oro” (Golden Beach) of Giulianova, famous for its beaches, spacious and perfectly organized with bathing facilities, particularly suitable for children and families, thanks to the big spaces to practice sports. The church of the village is definitely worth a visit. The parish church of St. Michael the Archangel is an old building that dates back to about 1200. Probably built on the ruins of a pagan temple that has undergone transformations over the centuries. Inside the church you can admire a painting that depicts the Regina Mundi, b Francesco Patella (a famous painter who was born and lived in Mosciano between 1800 and 1900), and a large canvas dedicated to St. Alexander (work of the painter Franco Tomarelli from Teramo). At a few hundred meters there is an astronomical observatory that allows tourists to spend pleasant evenings dedicated to scan the sky and deepen their knowledge of stars and planets. The planetarium is equipped with cutting-edge tools, this is a destination for scholars from all over the world , especially on the occasion of extraordinary celestial phenomena, who here have the opportunity to enrich their culture on the stars. At sunset, the horizon is tinted with striking colors, from bright red to pink, creating a breathtaking spectacle with the peaks of the Apennines that stand out in the distance.

Our Guest Words

"Can't Praise Enough"

If you're like us, looking for a laid back experience in the Italian countryside, this is it. We had a genuine opportunity to meet the family, even attending a birthday party and having dinner with family and friends. Massimo was the perfect host, the grounds were impeccable and the scenery was perfect. You'll probably want a car, although we didn't have one and they made sure it wasn't too much of an inconvenience...

"Beautiful new agriturismo - perfect for relaxing family break"

Recently stayed here in one of the apartments with the family. We had a two bedrooms and a sofa bed which accommodated us comfortably. The apartment was well appointed and maintained. The grounds and amenities are also impeccably kept by Massimo. The children were happy to spend the day in the pool and to go picking vegetables in the garden, the freshest tomatoes, straight onto the plate...

"Beautiful Location"

I travelled here back on November 2014 for a friends wedding. I wasn't expecting much however I was foolish to have low expectations. The location is gorgeous. You overlook vineyards and olive trees - there is a pool and lovely dining area. The apartment is self catering, all clean with everything you could need. The owners are lovely and happy to help in any way possible...
