Alan Rogers Review

This is the place to get away from it all – situated in the middle of Italy, high in the peaceful Abruzzo mountains with magnificent views over the Barrea lakes. The 105 touring pitches (4A electricity) are set on a hillside amongst wild flowers and grasses. The ebullient owner Tomasso Pasetta d’Amico and his family make everyone welcome to this peaceful, natural site. Tomasso is an expert in Alpine walking and a great raconteur. Ask him about ‘calling wolves’ – he really does and has appeared on BBC World in this role! English is spoken.

This uncomplicated site is an hour from Rome and Pescara, and it could be another world in terms of peace and quiet. If mountain walking is for you, Tomasso will give sound advice on the many tracks starting from the site. The site has limited facilities, but swimming, riding and fishing are all possible nearby.


Single clean, modern sanitary block with hot water throughout (honesty payment in high season). Mainly British style toilets. Laundry facilities. Motorcaravan services. Bar, coffee bar and small shop. WiFi (free). Torches are essential.
