Live in the Italian countryside for a week with us
The town Fraine, is in the province of Chieti, Abruzzo in the center of Italy. Just 2 and a half hrs from Rome, Florence, Naples etc, yet in a rural remote region with breathtaking views and where you can really experience real Italian culture. There are only 300 inhabitants in this town. There are 9 well known ski resorts within a two hour drive and a beautiful beach 35 minutes down hill.
The province, Chieti, is amongst the most ancient of Italian cities. Founded by the greeks, this is a pre-Roman town but eventually was taken over by the Romans. In 1806 Chieti was turned into a fortress by Napoleon’s France. In 1860 it became part of the newly created Kingdom of Italy. Allied forces liberated the city on June 9, 1944, one day after the Germans left the city.
There are many museums and beautiful churches to visit while in Abruzzo.
