"Spending a week in Italy, meeting people, being looked after and taking trips to explore the region, what's not to like! From personal experience, there is no one better to take you there Tory is caring, extremely experienced and looks after each and every person every step of the way no matter the journey they wish to endeavour on. Stop reading this and book today!
P.S I found it cheaper to go this way the Lane Change retreats and yoga than to book everything myself hahaha." Will, USA

Abruzzo may not be thought of in the same bracket as Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast when it comes to tourism in Italy, but it definitely should be. It’s wild, untamed, and beautiful. There are breath-taking national parks, a rugged Adriatic coastline, and plenty of historic towns and villages. Although it may not be top of an Italian travel itinerary, that means when you visit Abruzzo, you’ll have a more authentic and traditional Italian experience!

Accommodation & Location
La Martina is a splendid rural home in rustic/contemporary style which arose from the renovation of an old farmhouse dating back to the early 19th century. The renovation work was carried out in full respect of the anti-seismic regulations in force. The use of materials such as wood, stone and cement combine in making La Martina a unique home, a style that is also reflected in the selection of the furnishings and colours, the old walls in stone and brick, the splendid ceilings in chestnut and exposed tiles, creating a particularly warm and welcoming environment. Of great effect is the contrast between the finishing touches: marble on the ground floor and parquet on the first floor, together with the light glass walkway, exalt the rusticity of the old structure. Large openings create constant communication between the inside and the outside, brightening the house, with the outdoor areas which can be used throughout the day. The large terrace on the first floor, entirely in wood and furnished with benches, allows you to enjoy the hilly landscape in a relaxing atmosphere.
