If you are looking for an away from it all holiday or a romantic hideaway then the Majella Garden is the place for you.The town of Rapino is close to the mountains, beaches and towns of Abruzzo but there is enough distance to give you a feeling of tranquility and relaxation and the true rural Italian experience. The town has several well stocked grocery stores for your self catering apartment but also many restaurants and bars within walking distance of the apartment if cooking is not part of your vacation plans...
