About the property

2 large bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, large garden with pool, maximum privacy

The stone cottage in Abruzzo is lovely situated in a small valley with many olive groves and vineyards in the vicinity of the village of Civitella Casanova. There are no immediate neighbors so privacy is guaranteed. The house was completely renovated in 2007 with a loving attention to authentic detail. The house is built in traditional style and has an original vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and sitting room. On the ancient stairs and in the bedrooms are still the original cotto's. The old wooden door is preserved.

The holiday home is situated on an area of ​​1 ha, with several fruit trees and olive trees and a large garden of about 700 m² with a private pool of 4.5 x 11m, which is purified by a salt system. In the water is hardly any chlorine present.

The view from the spacious (partly covered) terrace is spectacular. Around the house there is a view of mountains and hills, fields and woods. In clear weather the Majella massif is visible and at night you can see the lights of Chieti in the distance. The site ends at a small valley that is close overgrown with forest and teeming with animal life, a birdwatcher's paradise. On the property is a second home to the same owner. This property is used as storage space and will not be rented or used, so total privacy is guaranteed.

The village of Civitella Casanova is 3 km away and is easily accessible by car. Here all daily shopping can be done.

The house is suitable for 4 to 6 people. On the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and good quality cookware and utensils. All that is needed to prepare a great Italian meal !

In the lounge is a large sofa (to use as a double bed),a fireplace, CD and DVD player with a lot of CDs and DVDs. The vaulted ceiling makes the acoustics excellent.

There is a large covered portico with a long table and chairs. Adjacent to the portico is a utility room with washing machine, refrigerator and extra toilet. This utility also all messages can be stored.

On the upper floor there are two large bedrooms with double beds and wardrobes. If desired, the beds can be put separately from each other, there's plenty of room. In each bedroom has a private bathroom with shower, toilet, washbasin. For babies and small children there is a extra bed, a bath and a highchair available. There are two one-person folding beds available for extra lodgers.

You don't need to bring any towels or bedlinnen , they are available in the house !

For optimum rest and relaxation there has been a conscious choice not to have a Wifi and TV connection in the house !

In the garden there are loungers and a large parasol for shade.

The costs of gas, water and electricity are included in the rental.

The final cleaning and laundry are €100,00 for your stay.

Trotz Regens schön

  • 5 of 5

Das Wetter hat nicht mitgespielt, aber da kann ja Louise, die sehr herzliche Vermieterin, nichts dafür. Wir haben uns gut betreut und sehr wohl gefühlt in ihrem Haus. Eine schöne Atmosphäre

Heerlijk huis in een prachtige regio!

  • 5 of 5

Dit complete, comfortabele en vrijstaande huis is synoniem voor een ontspannen verblijf op een prachtige locatie tussen Pescara en L'Aquila. Ruime slaapkamers, prettige keuken, heerlijk zwembad en vooral de prachtige uitzichten vanuit de grote tuin. Een fietstocht door Pescara, flaneren in Chieti, wandelen op de plateau's, de bossen rondom de Gran Sasso en luieren op het zonnige terras bij het zwembad maken de vakantie veelzijdig aangenaam. Elk bezoek aan de restaurants (4 op 5 km afstand) is feestelijk genieten. Dit sfeervolle huis in deze verrassende regio biedt alles voor een volmaakte vakantie en heeft een grote aantrekkingskracht voor de volgende keer!

Great week - Felt right at home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, we had a great week! The pool was lovely, the kids really loved it. The portico is very spacious and perfect for our Italian diner experiments. We’ve also been to the beach four times this week. It’s a plus 30 minute ride to Francavilla or Pescara. We liked Francavilla more because it was so easy to park there. The kids fell asleep every time we drove back, completely energized and ready to jump in the pool when they woke up again ;-). The view from your cottage is breath-taking, you are really blessed to have such home! We felt right at home, hope to enjoy your cottage next year! Thanks again for a great week!
