Where you’ll be

Sella di Corno, Abruzzo, Italy

The accommodation is located in the village of Sella di Corno. On the border with Lazio at about 1000 m above sea level in a corner of paradise immersed in the mountains, the last hamlet of the municipality of Scoppito, in the province of L'Aquila (Abruzzo). The town gives its name to the Apennine pass of the same name, the main point of communication between the cities of Rieti and L'Aquila. Horseback of the pass is a narrow and elongated plateau for over 6 km very fertile cultivated with fodder and wheat and precious black truffle. In this small town rich in history perhaps already existing in Roman times as shown by some archaeological finds, certainly inhabited and prosperous in 1145 as evidenced by the antinorian manuscript, today there are about a hundred inhabitants. And history reminds us of the miracle of San Bernardino da Siena. It was on May 16, 1444, when the Saint travelled to the city of L’Aquila with a cloth of faithful, he arrived at Sella di Corno. Bernardino burned with a very high fever, asked for water. The brothers did not know what to do, Bernardino stretched out on the grass to catch his breath, moved his skeletal hand and pointed to a point. It was Brother Bartholomew who, running, found a paw that miraculously sprang from the ground. This spring was transformed into a fountain: still called the "fountain of St. Bernardine”. We are in a unique territory where history has written important moments such as the first battle of the Italian Risorgimento of 7 March 1821. A corner of paradise among the mountains starting point for beautiful excursions, to observe, discover, get excited in front of the spectacle of nature and the facts of history. Feelings to take with you all the time! Here with simple walks or trekking you can go to rediscover the wonders of beech forests, look for new views and discover new territories.
