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.
