If you are looking at this one week holiday why not make your stay two weeks by joining us on Italy's Upland Wilderness.

Thanks to the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park founded in 1922, the oldest Italian nature reserve, Italy’s remote Abruzzo area is one where Europe’s ancient wilderness can still be experienced. Amongst the beech woods, alpine meadows and karst landscapes there are still bear, wolves and golden eagle. In the spring and summer the wild flowers are stunning.  In addition to its fauna and flora, its charm lies in the rugged mountains and the picturesque medieval villages, parts of which appear to have been suspended in time. A holiday in Abruzzo not only allows you to discover a largely untouched territory, but also to appreciate an ancient and strong culinary tradition proudly preserved in the area’s restaurants.
