Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Molise, Italy your home away from home

Previously known as an isolated province in the Abruzzi region, it is now recognized as one of Italy’s most charming undiscovered areas which is ideal to explore from a Molise holiday rental. It is a region of mountains and hills overlooking the Adriatic Sea with a popular beach at Termoli. In the southern part, the region is criss-crossed with waterways. The capital of the Molise region is Campobasso which has many noteworthy historic building and churches.

Things to Do in Molise

Enjoying the Molise cuisine is all part of the experience of a Molise holiday rental. Tasty cheese, pastas and rich tomato ragus of lamb and pork are the traditional rustic cuisine and the Porchetta, or roast suckling pig, is a local delicacy well worth sampling during the summer festivals. The area does produce some wines for tasting, but nothing of international repute. Like much of Italy, the area is perfect for hiking, cycling and touring by car. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and wildlife, or head down to the coast for sunbathing and beach activities at nearby Termoli.

Places to Visit in Molise

Campobasso, the capital of the Moise region is well worth a visit. It is well known for its scissor and knife industry, dating back to the 14th century. The town is also famous for its tasty pears and scamorza cheese. Visit the impressive Castello Monforte and the nearby Chiesa della Madonna del Monte with its precious wooden statue of the Incoronata dating back to 1334. The newer Church of the Holy Trinity just outside the city walls was rebuilt in 1829 after the 1805 earthquake destroyed the earlier building. Isernia is an ancient town in the Molise region, dating back to early civilization. It has a thriving embroidery industry. Although much of the city was destroyed during World War II, it was painstakingly rebuilt, including the Duomo. Termoli is a popular resort with the locals and has some excellent Molise holiday rentals which provide a great base for exploring the area. It has a busy fishing port and the seafood and fish restaurants are among the best in the area.

Modern and wonderful location

5 of 5
The apartment was attached to the owner's property but was completely private with own entrance from the road and secluded pool. We can't fault it and enjoyed the short strolls into town for a meal as well as staying by the poolside with wonderful views. It was also not a great distance from the seaside nor indeed Campobasso as the main road linking the two was only 15 minutes South of the property. We were unlucky with the weather but if you were more fortunate the outside kitchen and space were excellent. One tip : make sure you keep the key on you as we locked ourselves out and had to wait by the pool until we scaled the fence to be easily rescued by the family as fortunately they were at home. The restaurants were amazingly cheap as you eat with the locals rather than tourists. All in all a great holiday location and easy to give it 5 stars. Robert e Caroline, UK

Quiet country cottage with a fantastic pool

5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for us as a family of 6. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the remote location. The facilities in the cottage iteslf are basic, but adequate for a holiday. The pool is superb though; we could have spent the whole week in it! If we come to Italy for another holiday, we'd be more than happy to stay here again.
