Your chance to win a house in Italy!
Win a three storey south facing stone house with a sunny garden on the edge of Carapelle Calvisio, a beautiful medieval village in Abruzzo’s Gran Sasso national park.
The Beautiful Surroundings
Carapelle Calvisio is a very pretty little hilltop village that’s tucked away at the edge of the Gran Sasso National Park in the province of L’Aquila, part of Abruzzo. It sits at 850 meters above sea level and is surrounded by beautiful wooded rolling hillsides with the high mountains in the distance. The summers are long and hot but not oppressive.
Because of the altitude the air stays dry and doesn’t suffer from the humidity of the coastal regions. The winters are relatively short with little snowfall in the village, clear crisp days with views to the snow capped mountains all around and, again because of the altitude, dry fresh air.
The area is relatively untouched by tourism and there is still an element of exploration and discovery when you go out. Roman ruins are free to wander around, wild horses gallop across the high plains and you can always find a seat in the local restaurants. The local food is exceptionally good and you’ll never have a bad meal. Truffles and saffron are the key specialities, but there are a huge array of dishes on offer. The wine is also fantastic as Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is the local grape.
The house offers an excellent base from which to travel further afield, too. Pescara on the coast is a short drive for beach days, Popoli and Sulmona have wonderful markets and are steeped in ancient history, and then Rome is perfect for a day trip.
