About Darren and Jemma Sait

We first started visiting this area of Abruzzo in 2004 and immediately fell in love with all that it has to offer - the food, the wine, the family friendly beaches, the restaurants, the old towns with cobbled streets and cafes but above all the friendly atmosphere.

Darren and Jemma Sait purchased this villa in 2007

Why Darren and Jemma Sait chose Atri

Our dream of owning a house here soon became a serious venture and after much research we bought this house in 2007. It offered all that we were looking for in a peaceful location but easy access to all the things we enjoy.

We spent three years renovating and extending the property from a barely habitable farmhouse into a bright and spacious house with great facilities, a pool and garden with beautiful views.

What makes this villa unique

We love spending our holidays here and making the most of the local delights. Feedback from our guests has been very positive and were impressed with the quality of the property.

Many of them spent evenings eating 'al fresco' on the portico with a glass of local wine, watching the sunset across the valley. Others preferred the early mornings - but they all enjoyed the pool and stunning views from the poolside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On our first night back at this wonderful villa, my husband and I realised it was the first time we had even had an inclination to return somewhere we had been on holiday, never mind actually gone and done it!! Since we first visited here in 2012 we have reminisced about it often, and 5 years later we made it back to discover that if anything it was even better than we remembered. There is much to do in the surrounding area if you choose, however we were there for relaxation, sunshine and peace which was exactly what we got. The views are stunning in all directions, and wherever you are be it on a terrace or by the pool, they are just incredible. The villa is well-equipped and comfortable, and feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. Once again there were really nice touches such as some food essentials awaiting us on arrival, as well as a bottle of wine. There is a huge supermarket with everything you need 15 minutes away, but the local village shop is great for most day to day requirements. We thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa, and have absolutely no doubt that we will return for a third visit!

Very comfortable house with wonderful views in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for three weeks in June 2018 and really enjoyed our stay there. We consider this property to be one of the best that we rented in Italy over the years.

Our experience of the house was that:

- There was excellent communication from the owners during the entire booking process.

- We received thorough and detailed information about area and facilities, including an online map identifying the various facilities.

- Both the owners and the local caretakers were very friendly and helpful.

- A large welcome package of food and drink, with a good variety of quality items, was ready for us upon arrival.

- The house was very well equipped, especially the kitchen.

- The house is spacious and so allows for privacy when needed for a larger group/family.

- The location is excellent for access to both mountains and coast.

- The area is delightful, with interesting small towns, wonderful food and wine, and very friendly locals.

- There are amazing views from the house, especially while eating meals on patio which overlooks valley.

- The bathrooms are a good size, in good condition, are very pleasantly tiled, with the two upstairs having nice spacious and modern showers.

- The swimming pool is a good size, and the sunbeds were well maintained.

- The mobile network reception was good.

- The Wi-Fi was good, except for two of the bedrooms.

- The availability of a Smart TV was very helpful, especially by providing access to streamed entertainment services.

- The house was very quiet, except there can be some traffic noise heard in the one bedroom that faces the road.

We feel that it would add considerably to guest comfort and convenience if:

- Any damaged insect screen doors were repaired prior to guest arrival.

- There were insect screens on some windows, particularly bathrooms, to permit better ventilation.

- There were lower hanger rods in wardrobes, rather than having to use a pole for hanging and retrieving clothing.

- There were a coffee table and/or side tables in the lounge, for at least some of the three sofas in that room.

- TV channels were checked prior to guest arrival, since we were unable to get a signal for any of the English-language channels that we were assured should have been available.

- The bottom of the swimming pool was thoroughly cleaned with every weekly pool maintenance visit, as many insects tend to sink to the bottom and are not easily removed by the guest using the supplied net.

Beautiful Villa in Scenic Position

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her for a week in September. The villa is very well equipped and comfortable and is only a short drive away from the pretty hill town of Atri. Of particular not is the large swimming pool and very high quality bathrooms. Tracey, who looks after the villa is very helpful.

Be aware that the country roads in Abruzzo are very badly broken and, although most of the actual potholes have been filled, you have to drive quite slowly when going anywhere!

Atri, Silvi and Citta Sant'Angelo are all beautiful towns with good restaurants. They look particularly nice at night because of they are lit.

Try to get a meal at the local Agro Tourismo run by Nicolette. It is only 1Km up the road to Atri and is staggeringly good value at 44 euros for two including wine.

Lovely House in a pretty situation

  • 5 of 5

The house has been well thought out and well equipped. We made good use of the area outside the kitchen for eating all our meals and relaxing out of the sun but the roof terrace off the 3 bedrooms was perfect for a drink as the sun set or for star gazing. Everyone enjoyed the pool set a bit away from the house which is very private with lovely views.

Atri is well worth a visit either in the day when there's a market or for a stroll in the evening.

Its been a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday for 3 generations.

Away from it all with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This was a very well equipped house. Our children (mostly teens) particularly liked the fact that it had good internet, a TV and a pool. As adults we enjoyed the shaded outside area near the kitchen where we could sit and watch the youngsters in the pool.

You do need a car to get around but actually we didn't want to go out so much as everything we needed was right here.

The local cantina (wine seller) in the village was definitely with a visit - especially with the generous tastings!

The kitchen is a good size with plenty of pots, glasses etc. There is a utility room which was very useful.

Customer service was excellent and the house was clean.

Atri is well worth a visit and there are some lovely restaurants there but if you go in the height of summer be advised to go out earlier than the Italians (say around 7.30/8pm) or you will have difficulty parking! And at busy times book a table in a restaurant especially if you are a large group.

There was so much useful info and maps in the house you can choose a place to go to quite easily.

Overall we had a wonderful, relaxing week's holiday and won't forget the amazing views in a hurry!

Amazing views from this spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing aspect of this large villa is its stunning view which we never tired of during our two-week stay. Enjoying a peaceful location, the property makes the most of these views with two big terraces - one for dining and the other top terrace opens out from three of the bedrooms for an incredible vista complete with relaxing furniture and umbrellas. Great pool - my 11-year-old loved the fact is was the same depth across, (good for pool games), really well equipped kitchen, wonderful walk-in showers and a huge amount of space all round, all newly furnished. Also noticed there were plenty of useful items if you are traveling with very young children. Nearby Atri is quite breathtaking, so unspoiled and the buildings are fascinating. Eating out is extremely good value and quality with lovely staff. Try the restaurants recommended - it's worth it! Water parks are an hour's drive, but offer a great day out for kids (cabaret, wave machines etc) and the designer shopping outlet just 20 mins from the villa is definitely worth a visit. We borrowed the empty bottles provided and filled up at the vineyard just down the road - incredible wine for just 1.50 euro a litre! Darren and Jemma very helpful and house manager Tracey attentive and happy to answer any questions throughout our stay. A very comprehensive and thoughtful villa pack is provided with maps and even photocopies of various info sheets to enable guests to take away. It was extremely hot during our July stay (40 degrees!) but the fans in all rooms were welcome. We would certainly recommend this villa and consider making a return visit. Amanda, John and Olivia

Fantastic villa and great views

  • 5 of 5

So far, we have visited a lot of places in different countries in Europe. We would always aim to see the most popular tourist attractions, mingle with the local people and enjoy typical dishes and food. What we have realized during all these trips, however, is that the real beauty of travelling is to discover unique places and enjoy the hidden gems a country/town could offer. One of these places, which we discovered this year, was this beautiful Italian region Abbruzzo and the town of Atri in particular. And if you want to really get the best out of a visit there, I would highly recommend this villa. The location is superb - situated on a hill overlooking the whole valley, you can enjoy the lovely sunrises and sunsets from one of the terraces which offer different experience. In addition, you could simply pop down to the pool and relax comfortably in the peace and quiet of the whole place.

I personally admired the beauty of the olive trees which you could see from the villa and to make things even more pleasant, the lovely homeowners would even provide you with their home-made olive oil to enjoy during your visit. Not to mention the proximity of the villa to a small vineyard where you could get another taste of the region and also to the beach, where you could enjoy different attractions and bars in the summer.

This was definitely one of the best places we have visited and the spacious modern villa was fantastic (not to mention how clean and very well maintained everything was, which for me is always very important for the overall experience). We will be visiting again – hopefully very soon ;).

Sleeps 8 + 2 cots. 4 bedroom. Fabulous villa situated the near the historic town of Atri. This spacious four bedroom villa has been recently renovated and furnished to a high standard whilst retaining a traditional Italian feel. The villa is ideally located with beautiful views and offers something to suit all tastes and a 10m x 5m private pool. It is within a 10 minute scenic drive of traditional hilltop towns, the beach, nature reserves, sporting facilities and more.

The Abruzzo region is rich in culture and full of historical villages, towns and places to explore but it also has something to suit everyone from sightseeing, nature walks and wildlife spotting to shopping, dining and dancing, to sports or relaxation and well-being.

The local town of Atri is beautiful with cobbled streets, piazzas, an historical cathedral, theatre, cafes, restaurants, a park, and many unique shops. There are also caves, rock formations and nature reserves for the adventurers.

There are many activities on offer and within easy reach of the villa. The Pescara Golf and Country club, two waterparks, watersports and bicycle rental at beach locations, hiking, tree-top climbing, whitewater rafting and mountain biking trail in the National Parks and quad biking excursions in the hills.

In addition, the Calanchi rock formations and nature reserve provide interesting days out for budding ‘twitchers’.

There are an abundance of restaurants in Abruzzo, ranging from seafood specialties on the coast to more rustic and regional specialties in the smaller towns and villages. Many will also cater for special dietary requirements such as gluten free meals.

There are many local markets selling both local produce and craftware as well as two shopping malls and Italy’s first shopping outlet village approximately 15 mins drive from the villa. There are vineyard shops nearby where you can buy their locally produced wine.

The city of Pescara offers lively shopping with both high street and designer shops – shops close for the afternoons between 1pm and 4pm but most then stay open until 8pm.

More information about local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and local activities and places of interest is provided in the house.
