The name itself of this hotel makes you think about the nature, since St. Anthony was a saint very devoted to the Nature, the silence and the quietness. The hotel Sant’Antonio is actually an oasis of peace and harmony, a place that the ones more interest in the idyll of the nature will surely enjoy, while staying in Pescocostanzo for the XII International Festival of the Gnomes. We are still in Pescocostanzo, of course, but not quite in the historical city centre, but rather in its more naturalistical part, inside the Parco Nazionale della Majella, in the Wood of St. Anthony, which denominates the hotel. It is a hotel that really offers you the perfect match between the modern commodities and the respect of the Nature. Here, at the Hotel Sant’Antonio, the hospitality and the warm heart of the people of Abruzzo represents the main value to show to the guests. Nicely set between the Parco Nazionale della Majella, this place is quintessentially Abruzzo.

The Hotel Sant’Antonio just offers it all for those seeking for magic and quietness during the XII International Festival of the Gnomes.
