Location

Casale delle Querce is in the Nocciano countryside, the hilly hinterland of Pescara, in a district with precious vineyards and olive groves. Nearby the River Nora, a tributary of the Pescara, crosses a strip of land of great environmental value that has recently become a nature reserve. The Majella massif and the Gran Sasso d’Italia range are the stunning backdrop.
