Stunning mountain views, large comfortable room, lovely owners,a great breakfast (the local yoghurt is lovely) & five star service. The property also as a restaurant serving top quality regional produce at a very reasonable price. Anyone wanting to spend a few days of peace & quiet in beautifully rugged Abruzzo this is a highly recommended b&b

The inn was super cozy and comfortable. Dinner was great and Marco was very helpful and gracious. Our room was very clean and the view was spectacular. The town was very quiet and we enjoyed walking around and exploring. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a charming, family-run B&B, in a very small town in L'Aquila province. It has a fun witch, (Streghe), theme, and overall decor is lovely.
