The B&B consists of 4 double rooms and is entirely made of sand- and river stone, old bricks and wood and is situated on the top of a hill [altitude 500m] from where you can enjoy a view that embraces the Adriatic sea, the Valle Siciliana and the north side of the Gran Sasso. You can enjoy a rich breakfast made with local organic products in front of the fireplace, on the terrace or under the porch (both panoramic) according to season and weather conditions. A relaxation area with sauna and large jacuzzi is available to guests, as well as an outdoor jacuzzi with view and an equipped climbing wall.

A few opinion from some of our guests [taken from and tripadvisor]

The sight in the morning is amazingly superb... The ridge of the mountains in the distance, the sun coming up... All of this, enjoying a coffee and a healthy breakfast on the terrace. The owners are very kind, attentive and eager to show the area. There is indeed lots to do! Hiking, horse-riding, visiting the local markets, etc. The house is decorated with style, with a personal touch in each room and the beds are very comfortable!

This B&B offers not only a spectacular panorama, but is also a warm, welcoming, cozy place made by the great hosts Lorena and Bruno. They care about you and are extremely friendly and helpful (with good suggestions). The only reason why this B&B is not rated a 10, is that we don't believe in perfection. But this was close...

The Scacciapensieri is the B&B we have chosen to spend the New Year's Eve. The place is lovely as much as the owners who welcomed us as friends, and within minutes led us to an extraordinary atmosphere across breathtaking sunsets, authentic flavors and tastes. But especially Bruno and Lorena made ​​our stay unforgettable.
