Overview

About the property

Year-Round, Ecologically Friendly, Luxurious Holiday Accommodation.

This elegant and cosy yurt is set in a peaceful olive grove, with sweeping views to the Maiella mountain. Part of a small organic farm, thirty minutes from the Abruzzo International Airport, at Pescara, and just a two hour drive from Rome. There are three National Parks within a short distance where the amazing scenery and fine cuisine of Abruzzo can be enjoyed. Essentially a space for two, we can provide two extra beds for children under-16, on request. In summer, the swimming pool is available for your exclusive use,, by appointment, for a limited period each day.

There are three ski resorts within 90 minutes drive and the yurt has a very efficient wood burner to keep you snug in winter.

We are now offering our Landrover Defender with driver/guide for excursions to the ski resort, or elsewhere, at a cost of €70 per day, plus fuel, and we can arrange equipment rental and ski passes, if required. Our ski excursion all inclusive price for a minimum of two people, comprising transport, equipment rental, half-day ski pass and lunch is €120 per person, per day, and include a home baked pizza and a bottle of wine on return to Hawkridge in the evening.

About Tom Lister

Of English origin, I moved to Italy in 1995 and now produce organic olive oil from our farm, using biodynamic methods. My ambition is to tastefully and discretely develop our fifteen hectare farm to include seven unique accommodations, each set in their own private garden and affording guests the opportunity to experience a working olive farm first hand, whilst being well situated to explore the many and varied delights of Abruzzo.

Tom Lister purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Tom Lister chose Catignano

A rare opportunity to acquire a peaceful and secluded farm sandwiched between the mountains and the sea, thirty minutes from the Abruzzo International Airport and all the amenities of Pescara.

What makes this cottage unique

Nestled in the olive groves and vineyards in a quiet and peaceful area, the property was ideally sized and suited to my ambition to produce the finest organic olive oil and to provide ecologically friendly accommodation for visitors wishing to experience the many delights of Abruzzo for themselves.

Traumhafter Aufenthalt in wunderschönem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage der Jurte war excellent, die Badewanne ein Traum und das Bett schlief bestens. Das Kochen und grillen mit dem Außengrill war super und machte richtig Spaß. Und der Abend auf der Terrasse war herrlich. Alles in allem war der Urlaub in den Abruzzen sowieso schön, aber die Jurte toppte das ganze noch. Abends in ihr ein zu schlafen machte einen richtig zufrieden, und morgens der erste Blick aus dem Fenster lies einen denken, sich in einer Luxus Lodge in Südafrika oder Namibia auf zu halten. Tom ist an Gastfreundlichkeit nicht zu schlagen und wir sahen ihn immer wieder gerne. Ein Urlaub hier ist Urlaub wie im Himmel. Die Ruhe, der Blick, die Atmosphäre. Alles stimmte!

Abruzzo is, as yet, an undiscovered gem in the heart of Italy; blessed with a myriad of glorious, unspoilt villages and magnificent National Parks, where chamois, bears and wolves may still occasionally be seen under the right conditions . In winter you can ski on uncrowded pistes with often spectacular weather conditions. In summer, the 3000 meter mountain ranges of the Gran Sasso and Maiella offer a sublime trekking and mountaineering experience.

The area is renowned for very high quality olive oil as well as the wine made from the Montepulciano, Trebbiano and Pecorino grapes. A visit to Valentini's, in Loreto Aprutino, to sample his world class Trebbiano and then to the Olive Oil Musuem is a quite unforgettable experience.
