Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Roccacasale - Traditional Italian, Stone House With Balconies, A Fruit Garden And Roof Terrace With Stunning Views

Sleeps 8. 2 bedroom house with stunning mountain views which sleeps 8+ in two large en suite bedrooms each sleeping up to four adults comfortably with one double bed and a set of handmade adult bunk beds in each. One of the rooms has additional capacity for two more people on a mezzanine if necessary and there are two large modern bed-settees in the living room which has another bathroom adjacent to it. It is perfect for groups of friends or families who love the mountains

Our house is located near the top of the picturesque, medieval, village of Roccacasale which nestles on the side of the Montagna del Morrone, just inside the Majella National Park and only a few kilometres away from all the national and regional parks of Abruzzo. It is only 9km from the beautiful historic town of Sulmona, very close to the thermal spas at Popoli, a 40 minute drive from miles of pristine sandy beaches at Pescara on the Adriatic coast and only a 30 minute drive from ski resorts. The house itself has been lovingly restored, is made from Majella stone and has two large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large attractive living room with two balconies, a pretty fruit garden with a large BBQ, a fully equipped kitchen and a roof terrace with staggering views of the surrounding mountains and the village below. It is perfect for anyone who loves walking,the outdoors, exploring mountain villages and castles, or for simply relaxing on the terrace enjoying the view with local food and wine.

Further details for this holiday rental

Note:

There is a television but only for use with the internet and movie collection on hard drive. The parking is a 2 or 3 minute walk from the house. The house is suitable for the elderly if they are reasonably fit...there are stairs and the walk from the car park is uphill...my 78 year old mother can manage it

Further Details:

In the village there are three bars, only one is open late. There are two shops where you can buy anything you need, fresh vegetables, milk, cheese, salami, wine, or just outside the village about 2km from the house there is a supermarket. It is a tough walk back with your shopping but I can provide a lift once or twice a week. There is also a fresh fruit and veg van that comes to the village on Saturday mornings and a market in one village in the valley every day of the week except Sunday. There is a good restaurant in the village or the bar that is open late also serves food in the evening. Alternatively there are places to eat in all the nearby villages and many that are worth a visit in Sulmona. The nearest banks are in Pratola Peligna or Sulmona but bring Euro with you or use a card in the machines, you cannot change money here unless you have a bank account.

You can get almost anything else you need from Sulmona, 9km away and it is also a beautiful historic town, home to the poet Ovid, it has a medieval aqua-duct running through its main piazza which offers dramatic views of the surrounding mountains. Well worth a visit. There is an aqua-park at Corfinio (4km), guided walks are available including full moon walks, fishing, horse riding, rafting, Jeep tours and the region is perfect for cyclists, on the roads and mountain-biking along the endless trails and four wheel drive tracks. My personal love is walking in the mountains and in Abruzzo you can walk for days along beautiful mountain trails and hardly see another soul. There is a trail that leaves the village two minutes from the house and goes up the Montagna del Morrone, A stunning 2000m peak. There are refugios in Abruzzo which provide meals(not all) and sometimes entertainment and I can organize guides or maps and transport to and from trails as required. Abruzzo is a walkers paradise, get away from the crowds and explore each of its equally beautiful Parks.

The Real Italy

  • 5 out of 5
We recently returned from a week's stay in The Italian medieval village of Roccacasala. The village is bedded into the hillside with views to die for. We were fortunate to find Mark Clark's house for rental and were drawn in by the pictures taken and posted on the website. All the information provided by Mark was brilliant and the e-mail correspondence was superb when setting up the rental agreement.

We flew into Rome (Ciampino Airport) on Friday19/09/14, picked up our rental car and set out about 21:00hrs. It took approx. 1.5hrs to get to Roccacasala and we met Mark in one of the 3 local pub's (Bonnie & Clyde) which stays open late. You can get food and drink quite late as we did and the owners are very accommodating.

Mark was lovely, we had arranged to meet him here. Mark put himself out to give us a warm friendly welcome and even organised food, drink to get us through the first day of our stay.

There are a couple of parking locations at the top of the village, just down from the house. The house itself is a short walk from the car park. The house has the "wow" factor, vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms, lovely shuttered windows, and when you walk out onto the top floor terrace you cannot fail to fall immediately in love with the place. It is clean and spacious inside, 3 bathrooms and a fitted kitchen.

This is a fantastic base for access to the Adriatic coast at Pescara, the town of Sulmona and all the surrounding villages. If you are a "walker" this is your dream come true surrounded by all the natural beauty that the Italian National Parks can offer.

We all live busy lives, living in a city and wading through the daily traffic. By the time the end of the week came,We had slept so peacefully and deep each night, were so relaxed that we did not want to come home.

So anybody out there wishing to get away from it all, experience life in an Italian village with warm, friendly gentle folk. We would strongly recommend contacting Mark and making a booking as soon as you can.

Just fabulous!

  • 5 out of 5
We visited this house in Rocacasale in August 2012. The location is amazing, only 30/40 minutes away from Pescara airport and the city, yet this house is nestled into the hillside of a charming village and is so quiet, peaceful and incredibly relaxing.

The village itself is really pretty with friendly locals and we were lucky enough to be visiting in the summer, so experienced local music and festivals in the piazzas of Roccacasale and neighbouring villages.

The house itself is great, spacious with really comfy beds and lots of bathrooms which were great for us five girls! The kitchen is huge and well stocked and all rooms were lovely and cool which was great when we wanted to escape the heat for a moment.

The final thing to mention is the views! There is an amazing view from every window but the views from the terrace were just stunning! We would spend our days visiting local towns and lakes which were all gorgeous but we would all agree at the end of the day to spend the evenings on the terrace. We would eat and enjoy a few glasses of cava watching the sun set over the mountains and then watching the thousands of stars in the clear skies.

This property really became our home for ten fabulous days in and I would recommend it to anyone!

An amazing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The English Summer was as rubbish as usual, we all had city sickness and needed to get away, and us girls hadn't got together in a while, so we booked a week at Roccacasale for a much needed holiday. The five of us flew out there not really knowing what to expect - it couldn't have been more welcoming and impressive!

The village itself is perfectly situated on the side of the mountain and is a joy to explore with its Medieval ruins, tumbling vines and meandering streets. And the house is something else - a great size (the five of us had plenty of space) and really well equipped. We cooked several times while we were there: buying delicious local produce in the nearby town, cooking in the spacious kitchen and then eating (with maybe a small glass of wine!) on the roof terrace afterwards.

And the roof terrace is just breath-taking! With spectacular views across the valley, from sunrise to sunset it really is incredible - we saw so many shooting stars and constellations that you would never normally see. It goes without saying that the house was spotless, the beds were comfy and the service while booking/organising was spot on. Mark couldn't have been more helpful and clearly knows the area inside out. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

Amazing house, amazing location!

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and 4 girl friends had a fantastic week staying here in August 2012! The house is really beautiful and in a gorgeous location! Roccacasale is a sweet little village nestled onto the hillside and this makes the views from the roof terrace breathtaking! The house is really spacious with plenty of room for a large family or group of friends and there are plenty of bathrooms as well! The kitchen is spacious and well stocked for cooking. The garden and barbecue weren't finished when we were there but I can imagine the are just the proverbial 'icing on the cake'!

We flew into Pescara and hired a car there which we found meant we could explore the area around Roccacasale and get supplies from the supermarket at the bottom of the village. We spent our evenings watching the sunset from the roof terrace and I can't describe how beautiful it was! I would not hesitate to stay here again and can't recommend it highly enough! You will not be disappointed!

Had an obso brilliant time in Roccacasale Abruzzo, the village was beautiful as was the accomadation. The house has been recently converted to an excellent standard and was clean and comfortable. All the beds were new aswell as the bedding, the kitchen was equipped with everything u need and more, we also had use of the bbq which was also new ! Mark the owner was a lovely chap but to tell u the truth we hardly saw him, i do believe he can provide a cooking service to which we didn't use other than when he cooked a bbq what was excellent. I throughly recommend this house to people of all ages. Have fun, we did.
