The villa was everything we expected and more than adequate for a family of 5. The large rooms, huge terraces and great outdoor spaces all made for a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Kitchen was very well equipped, laundry room is great and there’s even a barbeque to have a go at cooking your own Arrosticini (Abruzzese lamb kebabs). A good TV and wi-fi kept the kids very happy too !
Bedrooms and bathrooms are all large and comfortably appointed, all rooms have terrace access, so lovely to walk out first or last thing and take in the stunning views.
The pool was brilliant and we spent hours swimming, splashing and lounging on the comfortable beds. We had no issues with pool cleanliness, as mentioned by previous reviewer; with the pool being thoroughly cleaned twice during our stay and very well maintained.
Handovers were easy and straightforward, with the house very clean on arrival. Information about the house and local area is excellent, we followed restaurant recommendations and weren’t ever disappointed. Communication from the owners was also first class.
There are great local restaurants within a few kms, plus a brilliant winery down the road, so you really don’t have to go far to enjoy a true taste of Abruzzo and a warm reception from the locals.
Atri is a lovely little town and well worth a visit, especially on market day (Monday). Great local produce, good cafes / ice creams and several good value restaurants as well.
With the beach at Silvi just down the road and supermarkets and other shops even closer, it really does have everything you could want within a stone’s throw.
Overall – fantastic villa with great facilities in an amazing location. We won’t ever forget our sundowners on the terrace taking in the views over the valley ! Highly recommended.
We would go back here any time! The house is very clean and well-equipped with a good kitchen, excellent beds and nice dining table and lounge. Most of all it is very private and utterly peaceful. It feels like stepping into another world even though it is only a couple of hundred metres from the road. The views are completely stunning! We found that it worked much better than actually being at the beach because the air is fresher away from the coast and it's much easier to sleep well. In fact very well! We usually had morning coffee on the balcony and evening drink in the porch looking straight out at the mountains. We went to the beach at Pineto about 10km away, and shopping and restaurants were easy in Atri. There's a good cathedral there and even a theatre right on the square which is good for coffee.
