About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom - sleeps 6/8

Our house is the obvious choice if you love the beach - we are only a 20 metre walk from our gate to the sandy beach on the Adriatic! Le Dune piazza is such a short walk away to enjoy a cocktail, ice cream or coffee at Le Dune Cafe, eat organic pizzas at Trieste Pizza, visit the pharmacy and the newly opened gym! Or what about a fantastic traditional seafood lunch at Paloma Beach in front of our home?

We have 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a modern fully fitted kitchen and a comfortable lounge.

There is an outside shower and we have a completely private security gated garden.

About Giselle Berger

UK born and bred. Living in North London.

Giselle Berger purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Giselle Berger chose Silvi Marina

We bought our home here because we loved the area having visited three times before for holidays and wanting to buy a home in Italy. There are so many fantastic regions and areas around Italy but having driven up this coastline we loved the lack of commercialism - the real Italy! We looked and looked for the right property and by chance, the day before we were coming home on our third trip, we spotted a newsletter outside the local agent with a picture of a property close to the beach. We went to view and could not believe that it was on the beach! We had looked at so many property details but had found nothing that was really suitable for us, our children and grandchildren. So a decision was made to buy it and do the necessary renovations. At that time and for a few years after nothing else came up for sale so close to the beach, shops and restaurants! Family and friends just love our home, the private garden and location.

What makes this apartment unique

We chose Silvi because of the greenery, mountains and beautiful beaches. The beach, the beach, the beach .. so very close and no roads to cross! The rarity of this type of home on the beach was an absolute deciding factor for us! So peaceful out of season but great for kids and buzzy in July & August.

The beach is so close that you can take your drink and walk for about 20 sec. The beach is sandy. The nearest restaurants are very close and there is a superb cafe on the beach serving fresh cooked fish, pizzas and various pastas as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Pedaloes are available here too. The town of Silvi Marina is a walk along the beach or road about 10 min - and has all shops and restaurants. There is a bus service - €15 on the bus to Rome (3 hours). Some of the ancient towns are near us - Atri is older than Rome. It is not even necessary to hire a car. We are 25 min by taxi from Pescara Airport to Silvi Marina. There are no hills to climb to get to our apartment and everything is in walking distance. Our property is very comfortable and we have a selection of English DVDs, games and toys for the children.

An gorgeous and amazing hideaway in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, clean, fresh and modern home with all amenities is like 'home from home' but almost on top of the beach, sitting in the garden in the evening with the barbecue going, glass of wine and listen to the waves! There are 3 Comftable bedrooms, and 2 lovely bathrooms, we've had several perfect holiday's in Paradise in Silvi.

Wow !!!

  • 5 of 5

Als junges Ehepaar fuhren wir gerne mit wenig Gepäck in den Urlaub. Als Eltern stellten wir jedoch schnell fest, dass Kinder - auch im Urlaub- sehr viel mehr benötigen, als in einen kleinen Koffer hineinpasst. Also hieß es: Hausrat mitnehmen, denn die meisten Ferienwohnungen waren sehr spartanisch eingerichtet. Zudem waren viele Ferienwohnungen für kleine Kinder eine Sicherheitskatastrophe. Echtes Entspannen war daher selten möglich. Doch dann lud uns Giselle in ihr Beachhouse ein. Und das war wirklich ein Wow!!!-Effekt. Alles war da, fast wie zu Hause. Haus und Garten kindersicher. Nachbarn nett und aufgeschlossen. Und vor allem: Giselle !!! Die beste Gastgeberin, die man sich wünschen kann. Alleine wegen Giselle würden wir wiederkommen!!! Einziger Kritikpunkt, der uns einfällt: Man hat versucht in Silvi unser Auto zu knacken...aber das hat ja Gott sei Dank unser Hund im Auto verhindert :). Kurz: Wir haben uns ehrlich wohl gefühlt! Danke, Giselle. Wir kommen gerne wieder, wenn wir dürfen!

holiday home from home

  • 5 of 5

With family and friends I have stayed in this apartment four times! It really ticks all the boxes, food - very reasonable cost wise and locally produced. As is the wine, all so delicious. The region is Abruzzo where it is locally produced. Sometimes I look on wine bottles in England and see the Abruzzo label, selling at much higher cost!

The apartment caters for all ages with all requirements. Everything is provided and the apartment is very well equipped. Being a few paces to the beach no need to worry with small children. No roads to cross to get there.

I have never been anywhere so often ever,I love it so, because it is just so idilic, the venue and situation and just the whole area. Italy, that particular coastline and the local area of Silvi is very unique. Usually populated with local Italians, it has never been over crowded nor completely deserted, in all the times I've visited. It feels you are close to places that are familiar and yet one could be a million miles from anywhere they have been before.

There is so much to explore, with or without a car, it is easy to get around. Walking is fun, just have good walking shoes and possibly the best way to see anywhere. Recently we have hired a car, mainly to use getting to the airport further up the coast, at Ancona, approx an hour and a half north from Silvi. Pescara, is the more convenient option, eight miles or so from Silvi.

Visiting further across the country to Rome is possible to do in a day, on a trip from Pescara by bus taking less than 3hours. We have driven through the mountains to Rome, with more than one driver this is managable, taking under 3hours. This time we might go by train to Rome! Also leaving from Pescara.

There are many local places to explore and within an hour can be high up admiring views across the sea from Silvi Alta. Last time with friends, we spent the best part of a day here, having a lovely meal with all local produce before heading home. Atri, is another must for any visitor. Only a few miles inland and it was a Sunday, lots of people pouring from the big Church at the centre of Atri. A place that has gone back in time, somewhere very quaint and I shall visit again, next time.

There are very many good small shops locally and a hypermarket in Silvi. A wonderful market comes to Silvi on a Thursday, there's nothing they don't sell! In Pescara there are all the big city stores.

Writing this I can't wait for my next visit!

You will have the best holiday, I assure you

a holiday home where you really feel at home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is home from home in the holiday sense of the word. Staying here blending in with the locals esp on market day,Thursday seeing a bit of local life in Silvi, everyone is so helpful. Lots of routes we discovered for a nice walk or jump on a bus and get into Pescara, the financial capital in 20 mins,Or stay on your doorstep and so easy to take a drink and book 120 steps to the beach,to sit and loose yourself! Fifteen mins walk along the beach to the town for all essentials. An easy journey to Rome for the day is possible, too. The tastefully decorated apartment is equipped catering for all needs.There is a comprehensive list of restaurants locally and all the necessary places one might need while staying away,chemist bus times etc.

My husband and I stayed here in September a couple of years' ago. I went back for "me" time for a girls' holiday last May and we are booked for this July with another couple. Three times in as many years says more than one could ever write esp from a person who never goes back to the same place twice! It ticks all the boxes and all needs thought of I would just say give it a try I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Rest and Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week here...The apartment was clean and well furnished and just a few paces from the beach where we relaxed for hours. We also enjoyed discovering some of the nearby towns and interesting drives into the hills.

Home from home and right by the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this lovely apartment with good friends in May 2008 (7 of us altogether). It was newly furnished, very clean and decorated in good taste, with every amenity we could possibly need. The location is traditionally Italian (not too touristy) with a colourful local market, but also there are lively beach front restaurants and bars to wander along. The beach is indeed extremely close - just walk along a short path and you're greeted by clean sand and sea. No problem carrying both your deckchair and drink at the same time! We rented a car at Pescara airport and found the location easily with the help of the owner's directions. We recommend car rental if you want to explore the lovely nearby traditional villages and some fabulous restaurants up in the hills. If you prefer not to travel around, it's nice just to relax on the sand or have a long beach walk (stopping for great ice cream along the way!).

Silvi Marina in Abruzzo is a typical Italian seaside town, popular with Italian holidaymakers although open all year round for the locals who live and work in the area. Silvi has many playgrounds along the beach as well as cafes serving fish and local cuisine, pizzas & ice cream. No car is needed as Silvi Marina is only 25 min from Pescara airport. A walk along the beach or road takes you into Silvi which has shops and restaurants.
