Make a holiday villa in Penne your home away from home

HomeAway can help you find the holiday home in Penne that fits the bill. This picturesque old town sits on a hillside surrounded by idyllic natural scenery in the heart of Abruzzo’s Pescara Province. To the west are tall and rugged mountains, while to the east is the sandy Adriatic coast. Penne villas are traditional stone buildings dating back hundreds of years and set in large grounds, often in remote locations with mountain views. Many are furnished with contemporary luxuries such as stylish private pools, while outdoor barbecues are provided by most Penne holiday homes.

Things to do

-History. Penne is a walled medieval hill town with lots of preserved buildings dating back centuries. The cathedral here dates to the 900s, and houses a wooden cross from the 1300s. Interesting sights around the town include the Renaissance “Palace of Death”, which was the residence of the official executioner of the Abruzzo Ultra state in medieval times.

-Nature. Lago di Penne is just minutes away – it’s a regional nature reserve covering 150 hectares of pristine scenery, with a glassy lake and wetlands surrounded by wooded hills. It’s a vital stopover and breeding site for a variety of birds, like the night heron, and an important centre for the conservation of tortoises and otters.

-Food and drink. In the Pescara province there’s a wonderful range of rustic culinary delights. Much vaunted are the local cheeses, among them pecorino, mozzarella, fior de latter and scamorza. Cold meats are also a speciality here, as are the fabulous breads like the thin cuscinetto. Mutton stewed with herbs is a popular rural dish.

-Coast. Abruzzo has a fantastic coastline, extending for 130 kilometres and boasting numerous Blue Flag beaches. Some of the best can be discovered at Pineto, an understated resort known for its sublime sandy beaches fringed by pine forest. Silvi Marina is another great choice, with a long, wide beach furnished with rows of sunbeds.

-Recreation. Just a brief drive west is the Gran Sasso e Monti della Larga National Park, which preserves a large area of Italy’s Apennine Mountains. People come to this magnificent location to enjoy activities like mountain biking, hiking and canoeing, but if that sounds a little too adventurous you could just make for one of the many scenic picnic sites for breathtaking views.

Weather in Penne

On holiday at a villa in Penne you’ll enjoy classic Mediterranean conditions. Summers are long, warm and dry with especially hot weather in July, when highs are known to reach well above 30 degrees during the day. Spring and autumn weather is mostly mild or moderately warm, but with more rainfall and highs that usually hit the mid-teens or more. Winter weather is mild, but there are occasional cold snaps in this part of Abruzzo due to the elevation. Daily temperatures at this time of year normally reach ten degrees.

Travel to Penne

The town of Penne is around half an hour by car from Abruzzo Airport (PSR), which is found just outside the city of Pescara to the east. You can get to this destination from the UK via low-cost airlines, making seasonal flights. Pescara is also the location of the nearest major railway station, and is also home to an important ferry terminal. At Penne you won’t be far from the A14 Autostrade, which covers the length of Italy’s Adriatic coast.

Regardless the time of the year the house and their owners gives you a warm welcome! And above that the surroundings are beautiful and even Rome is within reach by car, train or bus! The house provides you with everything you need. You can stay in the sun, in the shadow or in the swimming pool. The surroundings provides you with a whole range of activities or just a walk to bar of Appignano for a cup of coffee or a glass of the local wine. In short: we really can recommend Casa Lumaca for your next holiday!

The apartment was clean and in good repair and equipped adequately although would recommend a medium-sized saucepan. We enjoyed the wonderful view from the windows and, being early risers, were spoilt by the amazing sunrise each morning. A car is absolutely essential and we drove many miles exploring the region.
