About Jacquie and Stephen Rood

Yours hosts Jacquie and Stephen look forward to welcoming you to their home and introducing you to the comforts of the lovely new apartment.

Originally from England we spent 14 years living in Alberta, Canada in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Now our home is in Rapino, a rural and traditional town perfectly situated between the mountains and the Adriatic sea.

Stephen is looking forward to a more relaxing lifestyle after spending most of his career in Law Enforcement, in the UK with the Police and in Canada the Alberta Sheriffs. During this time he was a Personal Protection Officer (Bodyguard) for the Royal Family and then for the Government of Alberta so you know you will be safe in his home!

Jacquie has worked in the hospitality industry for many years and for the past few years has been involved in the wine business. After years in high quality hotels your comfort at the Majella Garden is her priority. She is also happy to discuss the wines available locally.

Jacquie and Stephen Rood purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jacquie and Stephen Rood chose Rapino

After looking and exploring all the regions of Italy we found ourselves drawn the the central area of Abruzzo. Researching the lifestyles, climate and location to the sea and the mountains Rapino was an easy choice. We both enjoy winter and summer activities and therefore being so close to Mamma Rosa and Passo Lanciano skiing and snowboarding is a simple day trip. The lovely beaches along the Adriatic coastline provide us with our summer leisure which we hope to share with our guests.

The property is quite different for a mountain village, we are fortunate to have a fairly flat 'lot' therefore the garden has plenty of room for us to develop plants, vegetables, trees and there still be space to lounge under the walnut trees!

Our home consists of a 2 storey house, just the right amount of space for the two of us and a couple of guests. Attached at the rear of the house is the brand new self contained holiday apartment. We have developed this from scratch, no expense has been spared with the interior furnishings and decor.

The moment we entered the house we knew we had found the exact property for our future plans.

What makes this apartment unique

The roof top terrace, great south facing views of the Majella Mountains and in particular Mamma Rosa. The terrace has been refurbished with lovely Italian tiles and hand crafted iron railings with stairs leading down to the garden giving our guests in the apartment access. We are within easy walking distance of grocery stores, bars and restaurants and there are plenty of walks and cycling opportunities directly from the house, no need to drive anywhere.

The Adriatic coastline is long and has many beaches, some free some having facilities so therefore a daily or weekly rate is charged. The sea is lovely and even early in the season the water is not too cold!

Equally close are the ski areas, Passo Lanciano and Mamma Rosa; on the way you will pass the wolf sanctuary and this is definitely worth a stop.

We do recommend a car unless you are planning your stay in Rapino with no day trips, there are buses but not very frequent and limited destinations.

For our guests staying in the cooler months the apartment has full gas central heating and if the sun is limited and the solar panels are not in full force then there is always hot water available from the mains gas.

Notes:
The town of Rapino is in the Majelletta mountain area and therefore the perfect destination for those looking for a variety of holiday activities. There are many beaches within a few km and the ski areas are close by, Passo Lanciano a mere 30 minute drive, Mamma Rosa just another 10 minutes. A car is recommended although there are buses but the area is full of small towns and villages tucked away in the hills and mountains waiting to be explored. Park the car at the end of the day and enjoy the many restaurants and bars in town, all within walking distance and immerse yourself into the rural Abruzzo lifestyle. For those guests who are looking for a complete break, no driving, then you can spend your days cycling or walking around the town and local countryside. The wildlife is here in abundance and the garden is an ornithologists delight! Just bring your bicycle, boots and binoculars and a rural Italian vacation awaits you.
