A fantastic base to explore this beautiful and diverse region of Italy. We very much enjoyed our time at the villa which was clean and modern with everything you could want for a great vacation. The property is a short drive from the beautiful beaches of the Adriatic and an hour away from the stunning Grand Sasso mountains. There are also many supermarkets and restaurants within a short drive. The pool proved to be a very popular place to unwind in the afternoon after a busy morning exploring. Sue and John are very attentive hosts and we're always available to answer our questions.
I would throughly recommend a stay here it is a very special place with views that you will never tire of!
Our family of four stayed during one of the hot spells of Italian summer 2017 at Magnolia, a village with few houses and set in the hills beyond the Adriatic coast. The villa has been renovated and done so in an intelligent and comfortable manner. There was ample space for us individually as well as enjoying each other's company at the various terraces or tables. The pool was a perfect way of cooling down combined with the soft breezes that came blowing over the hills at the backside. Our view was spectacular changing everytime the sun took in a different position.
Leaving the house took some energy. To travel over the unpaved road leading to the villa was, however, alleviated by the 4WD provided as part of the package deal. It also allowed us to venture around in the various rocky and mountainous terrains, and visiting typical and so picturesque Italian hillside villages (Civitella del Tronto an absolute favorite). The Gran Sasso park itself is of course a wonderful way of coming across all sorts of wild animals (we saw foxes, boars, deer, and heard wolves) While we did not visit the seaside as much, there are plenty of little (and some considerable bigger ones for those enjoying that) beach resorts in reasonable distance.
For all its great places and experiences, we were certainly surprised (and thankful) for the absence of greater groups of tourists.
Thank you, Mike, for always being available in the case of assistance. We certainly would like to return one day.
