Camping is great but not everyone has the right kit or the inclination to sacrifice comfort for the great outdoors. Well here you don't need to think too hard about it. If you are seasoned campers you can just turn up and choose your spot amongst the olive groves - the views are pretty spectacular from any position here. You just get on with it and do your own thing. If you are camping newbies, or just lacking in the all paraphernalia, the alternatives are many and well considered. We rented a wonderfully spacious bell tent. It was big enough for a double mattress plus a single for our little one. Proper sheets and duvets plus towels are all provided. The loos are (British standard) CLEAN - sorry but these things are important and need to be stated - and there are hot showers available in a newly built block. There is a hairdryer provided, pots and pans for cooking, WIFI, somewhere to recharge your iPad, a comfy barn area with books, toys and a TV / DVD player, pick your own fruit and veg, maps and guides to help you explore the area etc etc etc etc. What haven't these wonderful people thought of? Jacqui and Kevin are laid back and welcoming, but super organised and clearly have a talent for simply 'getting it right'. As a first experience for a 5-year old it was just what we wanted. She loved it and we'll be sure to go back again very soon. PS I'm speaking as a resident of our lovely Abruzzo but for those of you who have yet to come here I must add that you will not be disappointed. Abruzzo is very real Italy and an absolute joy for all who visit. What are you waiting for?
