The property just outside the village of Elice is in an excellent location with beautiful views to the local hill towns and Appenines. Easy to to relax an unwind in such a beautiful location. The Adriatic is only 30 minutes away and visits to hill towns are easy and straight forward. There are also some very good restaurants in the area.
The house has all that you need and is well equipped.
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.
