A real surprise in the center of Sulmona, very comfortable hotel, very nice spa with jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath, etc. Home-made Abruzzo food (try the mix grill!). Near by historical center of Sulmona is a fantastic place to discover. Home of Latin poet Ovidius, you can find very interesting artistic events.
