Into the wild
Can you imagine how it would feel to ‘build’ your own camp in or nearby the woods with your own campfire to cook on. Well imagine no more! At Rocca di Sotto you can come and enjoy the ‘Slowcamp’ experience! At the bottom of our land we have a few acres especially for you, complete with a trickling stream (at the height of the season there may only be a small amount of water in the stream). Enjoy campfire cooking, play a game and sleep with only the sounds of nature around you. … This is what we call the ‘slow-camp’ experience!
You can mix the adventure of ’into the wild’ with the comforts of a cosy terrace, fresh bread in the morning and a hot shower. The walk up and down the hill is not for the faint hearted however!
Slowcamp is an “into the wild” experience with a touch of luxury. Are you ready?
The walk is about 350 meters from the parking to the slowcamp area. It is a moderately steep downhill walk with a gradient of about 25%. This will be less suitable for the inexperienced walker.
At the slowcamp area, which consists of about 5 acres, it is possible to pitch a maximum of 3 tents. Equipment is not provided and you will need to bring your own gear.
There is no toilet, so you will need to dig your own latrine. A scoop is available at the slowcamp.
As well as a sink there is an outdoor solar shower and some picnic tables.
After a climb to the ‘normal’ campsite area you can use the toilets, hot shower, 3 large fridges and electricity should you prefer!
You can find direct flights to our local airport in Pescara, which serves many Ryanair routes throughout Europe. From the airport to Rocca di Sotto it’s only an hour’s drive by car (about 30 miles).
For a fly-drive holiday you can find out more information about the costs of car rental by contacting “Hertz” Airport Pescara.
Welcome to Rocca di Sotto!

“Slowcamping” took a bit time to get used. But after one day our place nearby the oak became the most luxury pitch we ever had.”The space and the rest we will miss.”
