From the apartment is just 45 minutes by car.

The Majella massif looms over Fara San Martino, the ancient Longobard village that is now home to Abruzzo’s most famous pasta factories. A short distance from the town, the mountain’s limestone ramparts are furrowed by two gorges, Valle di Santo Spirito and Valle Serviera. While the latter is inaccessible from below and is suitable only for expert mountaineers and speleologists, Santo Spirito is accessible to all, popular for its beauty and proximity to the town. The opening section is the most frequented, with its tall, very spectacular, narrow gorge; further ahead the trail offers trained hikers the biggest height change in the Abruzzo mountains, reaching as far as Mount Amaro, at more than 2,300 metres. Recently, just beyond the opening to the gorge, the ancient monastery of San Martino in Valle (9th−15th centuries) was brought to light.
