About the property


Masserie di Marsilio is a secluded, private borgo (historical village) tucked away in the foothills of the Majella mountains in the little known region of Abruzzo

After a five year restoration, we opened in 2015 with a range of accommodation in traditional stone buildings. This listing covers a one bedroom property sleeping up to four guests (double or twin beds, along with a sofa bed) and a one bedroom property sleeping two in a double bed. The restoration has focused on the reuse of existing materials to blend traditional architecture with progressive design. This has provided a unique destination for couples, groups and families alike

Abruzzo offers a warm Mediterranean climate with easy access to both the coast (25 minutes) and mountains (35 minutes). Although secluded, Masserie di Marsilio is only a five minute drive or half an hour’s walk from the town of Casoli (five restaurants, bars and supermarkets); with Pescara airport (50 minutes) and Rome, Naples and Ancona around two and a half hours away


• Good sized, air conditioned, double bedroom, available as a double or twin, with and without balcony

• Separate sitting room/ dining room, available as a separate bedroom using the sofa bed. Extending glass table for four

• 14 x 3m south facing terrace or roof terrace with table, chairs and umbrella

• Satellite TV and Wi-Fi router

• Fully stocked kitchen including built-in dishwasher


• Defined by its protected, tranquil position and unique character – unrivalled views, with the sea and snow covered mountains both visible from parts of the property

• Responsible tourism – nominal impact on the environment, keeping Masserie di Marsilio’s footprint to a minimum through the extensive reuse of existing materials, air source heating, solar hot water, rainwater harvesting, recycling and LED lighting

• Guests can benefit from the proprietor’s extensive contacts and experience, who will discretely be available throughout the season – local restaurants, car hire and many local businesses

• Chefs, baby sitters, masseuses, tour guides and language tuition can be arranged

• Fully inclusive rates – taxes, utilities and the final clean (use of the sofa bed for up to 2 additional guests being the only extra at €165 per week)

• Proximity to the coast, mountains and airports

• 12 x 6m pool situated in the olive groves with the same exceptional views

• Junior arm chairs, highchair, cot, beach umbrella and barbeque (by request)


A third of Abruzzo is national park and often referred to as “the green lungs of Europe”. Beaches on the Adriatic coast are clean and plentiful with the closest being a twenty five minute drive from Masserie di Marsilio. The Apennine Mountains cut though Abruzzo and offer a range of sports in both the summer and winter. National parks continue to provide habitat for brown bears and wolves

• Few tourists and a local people unspoilt by tourism

• Natural scenery

• Medieval castles and villages (lots of them..), monasteries, Roman remains, Museums and Art History

• Food and restaurants – these are in abundance locally, untouristy and range from €10 to Michelin starred

• Mountain and Eco tourism - hikes and mountaineering / rock climbing to suit all levels

• Coast and beach tourism – 12 Blue flag beaches

• Many local and regional “Festas” organised throughout the summer

• Trabocchi – traditional wooden fishing platforms

• Canopy surfing

• Sailing

• Rafting

• Mountain biking

• Horse riding

• Yacht rental

• Skiing

• Wine tasting

• Truffle hunting experience

• Traditional olive picking

All of the above can be organised by Masserie management

Ruhe und Panorama am Rand des Majella Nationalpark

  • 5 of 5

Eine ruhige Wohnung in fantastischer Lage, mit Blick auf die Berge der Abruzzen. Die Wohnung ist sauber und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, der Vermieter hat an alles gedacht. Viele kleine Aufmerksamkeiten geben einem das Gefühl, man ist bei Freunden zuhause. Der Vermieter ist sehr hilfsbereit gewesen. Come on, George, live your dream!
