Travel diary - Abbruzzo

Last July, when we came back from our beach vacation, we decided to spend some days in August in the cool Abruzzo.
We found a good deal on an apartment in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, 1200 m altitude, and booked it.
It was really a magical place. The apartment was lovely - here is a picture of the place:

And the towns around were as beautiful. We went to Santo Stefano, Calascio, Castel del Monte and Castelvecchio.

We also drive to Campo Imperatore, at 2100m altitude:

We visited l'Aquila too, but didn't take pictures there. 
L'Aquila, but also these smaller town, still show the wounds of the 2009 eartquake. I didn't feel like taking pictures of these.

It was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. I would love to go back during the Winter, when there is snow.
