We are moving to Abruzzo in two weeks time.
We have got a house in Ofena, in the Gran Sasso national park. Ofena is known locally as the 'oven of Abruzzo' because it gets so hot during the summer months. We will be living in a caravan to start with as our house has to be repaired following the 2009 earthquake. It is about 40minutes away from Pescara and quite close to Bussi and Popoli.
We are surrounded by mountains and can't wait for the move. Good luck with your search.
