B&B Casale Le Crete

Via delle Crete di Sorbo - 67069 Tagliacozzo - L'Aquila - Italy

A farmhouse in the wilds of the Abruzzi, hospitality ecological surrounded by Simbruini, Mount Velino and the National Park of Abruzzo

An ancient farmhouse in wood and stone nestled among the vines at 760 meters high. All around nature and mountains: the Monte Velino (2,489 meters), the Magnola, the Serra di Celano, the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park and the Simbruini, and in the distance the Majella.
You can choose from four beautiful rooms, all with private bathrooms, furnished with natural materials, wooden beds, futon mattresses, and free wireless connection.
Guests have access to a porch and a large lawn shaded by oak trees, ideal for outdoor dining in the spring-summer months. And then beautiful outdoor spaces for walking, relaxing or letting children play safely. In the garden there is also a large maze of stones where you can walk and get lost.
Particular attention was paid to the renovation of some spaces using natural materials in line with the principles of green building. Wood and stone. We are also implementing "ecological" solutions: natural furnishings, rooms with wooden beds and futon mattresses, energy and water savings, recycling, etc.
The Casale le Crete, set on a hill surrounded by mountains, is in a quiet and peaceful position, reachable along a small unpaved road. From here you can go on numerous excursions, even guided, to discover the beautiful territory. A riding school near the farmhouse offers the possibility of excursions or horse riding lessons with an equestrian guide.
The Casale Le Crete is the ideal starting point for many cultural and archaeological visits, including: Tagliacozzo (5 km away from the Casale), the excavations of Alba Fucens and the Church of San Pietro (9 km from the Casale Le Crete) and Santa Maria in Valle Porclaneta (13 km from Casale Le Crete).
You can visit the garden of forgotten fruits, or (by reservation) request holistic massages with essential oils and other natural therapies with a professional therapist.
In the farmhouse you can taste and buy different organic and artisan products from Abruzzo.

Casale Le Crete is an ideal starting point for nature excursions, being in the middle between Monte Velino (to the north), the Simbruini Mountains and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park (to the south). With a few minutes on the motorway you can also reach the Gran Sasso National Park and the Majella National Park. Starting on foot from Casale Le Crete, you can reach the built-up area of Sorbo by marked paths and from here the Sentiero di Corradino, an 80 km route. on foot that from Scurcola Marsicana leads to Sante Marie, Carsoli, Tagliacozzo, up to the Sanctuary of the S.S. Trinità in Lazio. It is a medium mountain route (between 1,000 and 1,600 meters) of great naturalistic and panoramic interest. The entire route is marked with white-red signs.

Some recommended excursions are:
Monte Velino (departure 15 minutes by car, hours of walking 8, height 1600 meters)
Gorges of Celano (departure at 20 minutes by car, hours of walking 4)

Other ideas for holidays with children (and others) are:

    Non abbiamo potuto esplorare molto il territorio, ciò che ci è piaciuto più di tutto sono le persone che gestiscono il posto sicuramente molto coerenti con i valori di questo sito. Ottime colazione, bello spazio in tranquillità.
