Location

Ripari di Giobbe is located within a territory rich in tourist itineraries. Meandering along the sea and the mountains, medieval villages and pristine beaches, it is able to satisfy the needs of every guest.

The Costa dei Trabocchi, a stretch of Adriatic coast unique in its kind, where structures called trabocchi, or “primitive monsters” as D’Annunzio used to call them, can be found which are nothing more than fishing machines hoisted on stilts and supported by webs of cables and axles.

Today they are also “suspended” restaurants where you can enjoy excellent freshly-caught fish in an atmosphere of incomparable beauty.

Just a few kilometres from the villa you can visit the town of Ortona, with its old origins with the Aragonese castle.

Not to be missed is San Salvo, a tourist destination known for its artistic heritage as well as for the sea.

Within a radius of only 30 km is the Megalo’ Shopping Centre, the largest in Abruzzo and one of the largest in Italy with about 100 shops and cinemas with 9 halls;

the train station is located in Ortona, just 5 km away.
