Pescocostanzo, Abruzzi



Pescocostanzo - small town in the clear air of the edge of the Abruzzi National Park.  Tourist free in June (their low season).  Well kept - probably through revenue from Roman skiers.  In 2004 no Internet ("internet non funzione") or English ("solo Italiano") - both good points !!

OK for him - not much fun for her!


Even the Scots who made the town fountain had to learn Italian

Many of the houses have steps to their front doors - for snowtimes?


Albergo Archi del Sole, Pescocostanzo


Hotel:  Albergo Archi del Sole - 0864 640007 - the ideal small unpretentious hotel - 7 rooms with names: Primula, Ginestra, Genzianella, Anemone, Rosacanina, Non ti Scordar di Me, and Stella Alpina.  Say hello to Gabriella and Marco.  Finding it is a challenge .... circle the one way system till you hit the fountain / town hall, and head towards the "American Bar" (though you won't find any Americans there unless they are hopelessly lost) then its down the hill to the right.


Restaurant:  Ristorante da Paolino ("Antiche sapori d'Abruzzo nel cuoredi Pescocostanzo" - old flavours of the Abruzzi near the heart of Pescocostanzo) - just up the road from the hotel and the town piazza - 0864 640080 - great atmosphere, great food, great local wine, friendly host (solo Italiano!) (that's the boss in front of the town hall in the second photo down).
