Villetta Barrea

Amena locality on the shores of Lake Barrea, in the National Park of Abruzzo, on the southern slopes of Monte Mattone (990 meters above sea level), is immersed in a suggestive natural environment in which stands the beautiful pinewood of black pine, a local variety. Remains of polygonal walls (still visible near the locality of Fonte Regina) attest to its origin as a Samnite center. The current village is built around a small castle built in the 1300s in the upper part of the village; of the castle is still visible the base of a defensive tower with a circular plan, part of the original fortification. The many stately homes dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries are interesting. Tourist center of pleasant appearance, cared and equipped for a summer holiday in the name of tranquility, psycho-physical wellbeing, a healthy vacation in contact with the nature of the Park, Villetta Barrea is able to attract tourists with a variety of proposals ranging from crafts, to typical products, to a traditional gastronomy in which genuine flavors are rediscovered, to an interesting activity of welcome and healthy fun, but also to cultural proposals and events linked to the local tradition.
