Places of Interest / Activities

Our holiday homes are the perfect locations for rest and relaxation but the area also offers a wide range of activities and places of interest to suit all tastes. These include…

Local walks and bike-rides:

Carunchio and the surrounding areas are a haven for anyone interested in road walking or cycling. There are many routes from the village that take you through breathtaking scenery to other places of interest such as nearby hill-top villages and the local nature park.

For those of you who are a little more adventurous there are walks/routes through woodlands, along riverbeds, up and over hilltops along little used tracks where the beauty of the region really hits home.

Shopping and Restaurants:

Everything that you would need for day to day living is available from the village shops and bars but a wide range of designer shops and restaurants/bars are available in nearby Vasto (40 mins)

Nature Park:

The local Nature Park with activities such as horse riding is only 5 minutes away by car or a pleasant leisurely walk along the hillsides.
