Freedom and happiness
Wether it’s an oldtimer (camper)van, former fire truck or ambulance, already many owners have camped at Rocca di Sotto with their own tiny house on wheels.
It’s your turn now! Pack your things, hit the road in your van and let the adventure begin. A visit at Rocca di Sotto in Abruzzo can make your roadtrip through Italy even more adventurous; the choice is yours.
Magical peaks of Gran Sasso
15 Years ago we traveled through Europe with our little blue campervan in search of our dream and hopefully, someday be able to realize a mini campsite surrounded by nature.
We found our destination in Abruzzo called “Rocca di Sotto”. It’s only a one hour drive to the beach and one hour to the enchanting “Campo Imperatore”. A small and old bumpy road led us to a beautiful olive grove with fabulous views over the hills of the “National Parc Gran Sasso”. And there it was.
And there it was. At the end of the road we found a deserted house and so we decided to make our own boondog camp there. (sttttt…, don’t tell anyone).
That evening, while we enjoyed the magnificent view over the magical peaks of Gran Sasso, with a glass of good Montepulciano wine and countless ‘dancing’ fireflies around us, the plans and ideas of the campsite all came together… But the absolute best experience was seeing the beautiful sky above us and counting the stars through the tiny window in the roof while we were laying in our bed.
Bumpy access road
Unfortunately, to enjoy this special place with the beautiful panorama of the high mountains of the Gran Sasso, the bit steep and bumpy municipal access road is unavoidable. But after the last 200 meters it offers an oasis of peace, space and nature. A motorhome with power makes the trip to the top easier when you leave the campsite.
Unfortunately it is not possible to come to Rocca di Sotto with a large camper or caravan.
Camping with a van or a 4×4 motorhome at Rocca di Sotto is a true nature experience.
There is no electricity and no system for discharging water at the site. But a small climb brings you to the sanitary building which has 3 bathrooms, an outside kitchen with fridges, and two outdoor showers. We hope you will experience the same feeling as we then did. We are pleased to say a lot of guests already did. We offer you a beautiful place, a lot of privacy, no stress and amazing views.
The luxury of Rocca di Sotto is the ‘simplicity’ of nature!
