The village is clung on the slopes of the mountain with a vertical development of small alleys. You can park at about 100 meters from our B&B and then make your way through these alleys. After reaching the highest part of the village (Balzolo) you can follow the two paths and discover uncontaminated flora and fauna. (Here below you can find a map of the historic centre and a map of mountain paths).

Mountain fans can practice free-climbing on the rocky walls which are only at 10 minutes from our B&B (see maps Pennicciola and il Torrione area).

Moreover our B&B is in a central position and from here you can easily reach both the sea (at 40 Km.) and the ski facilities in Passo Lanciano (at 24 km.) and in Roccaraso (at 60 Km.).
