About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Villa With Beautiful Pool Overlooking Stunning Scenery

Perched high on a hill this stunning villa overlooks the beautiful hilltop town of Torino di Sangro, on the unspoilt Trabocchi coast in Abruzzo. The villa is surrounded by spectacular views of the Majella mountains and the ocean.

The house provides a porthole view of the workings of a local Italian village on the hill opposite, whilst being far enough away to provide ultimate privacy and relaxation. During the day, you can swim in the refreshing infinity pool and enjoy the views of the clear blue Adriatic ocean. If you prefer a bit of beach life, one of the cleanest and safest beaches in Italy is 10 minutes drive away.

The house is set in its own private, gated grounds and has a pretty garden with several terraces to enjoy eating and drinking al fresco. Inside the ground floor, there is an open plan kitchen, dining space and comfortable sitting room with large leather sofas. Down a few steps and you will find two double bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom and bathroom, next to a minstrel’s gallery with a large comfortable sofa bed with a view of the local village. The roof veranda with wrought iron table and chairs, is the perfect venue for supper on balmy summer evenings. For the more energetic visitor, a games room provides an opportunity to let off steam with table football or table tennis matches.

If you can tear yourself away from the ultimate retreat, the many bars and restaurants provide delicious local food and wine.

About Vivien Stevens

I am originally a Kiwi but sadly have now lost my accent having spent too long with the Brits. I am married to Rob, who after a long career as a Naval officer is now working in the Marine industry. We have two lovely children and one very special grandson all of whom adore coming to stay in Villa Farfalla

Vivien Stevens purchased this villa in 2004

Why Vivien Stevens chose Chieti

Having spent 4 years living in Naples, we fell in love with everything Italian and couldn't resist buying our wonderful villa. We chose Abruzzo as we loved the idea of owning a house by the sea and near the ski slopes. The region is unspoilt by tourism so you will have a truly Italian experience.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Farfalla has a phenomenal ability to relax you the minute you walk onto the terrace with a glass of wine in hand. There is something very special about hearing the gentle tolling of the church bells from the village whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the beach and mountains.

Stunning. Loved it. Beautiful views and a great week taking in the village festival

  • 5 of 5

I love it every time I go. I adore the peace and quiet. Wonderful wildlife with swallows coming every evening to drink from the swimming pool. As the sun sets behind the ancient village it is almost as though one is in another world.

Sun, sea, stupendous

  • 5 of 5

Met by the friendly and helpful Ana Maria, whose husband Domenico also cooked a super meal for us. The villa is beautifully laid out - breathtaking views, especially from the wonderful infinity pool. Well-equipped, Viv and Rob have thought of everything, including lots of information about the surrounding area. None of us wanted to leave and all of us want to come back!!!

Fabulous Farfalle

  • 5 of 5

The stunning views, the swooping swallows above the glorious pool, the beautiful house and garden, the well equipped kitchen and the feeling that we were staying with friends who had just left us to it - what a perfect place for a holiday! We have rented houses in Italy, Spain and France for our holidays before but without a doubt this is the best one we have ever stayed at!

Food shopping in Torino di Sangro's supermarket to the markets in Pescara - plenty of beautiful products to keep your mouth watering...and restaurants galore serving the freshest fish dishes ... mmmm, I'm remembering the delicious 'crudi'!

Thankyou Vivien for your amazing hospitality and stunning Villa Farfalle and thankyou to Ana Maria and Domenico for their invaluable help and tips.

Looking forward to a return visit in the future!

Fabulous Farfalla

  • 5 of 5

Farfalla, like a still butterfly, is beautifully settled on a hilltop overlooking the pittoresque village of Torino di Sangro and its lush valleys with views of the mountains and the sea. A modern simple design includes a spacious sunny terrace and large infinity pool. Trees shrubs and flowers abound. Three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large comfortable lounge with a fireplace and spectacular round windows is great in the evening if unexpectedly cool. Torino with local shops and bars is a few minutes away. Equally the beach with gaily coloured parasols, safe bathing, restaurants and gelati is only a short trip. The classic Italian towns of Lanciano and Vasto are a pleasant drive through this little known area of coastal Abruzzo while a longer one will take you into the mountains with stone villages, tumbling streams and deep caves to explore. Do not expect to meet many tourists. This is a place for locals. Accessible by air plus hire car via Pescara on the Adriatic coast or Rome via Villa d'Este. The property was clean and tidy, and maintained to a high standard by caring local families known to its English owners for many years. Highly recommended for appreciative adults seeking the real Italy.

A real taste of Italy

  • 5 of 5

Charming combination of modern style with traditional views of olive groves,vineyards and mountain villages and ideally placed for trips to the coast or inland.

The owners have thought of everything from information on the area to ideas for trips to the coast or in-land. Their advice on local wine merchants is well worth taking!

Wonderful Stay in Italy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this stay in italy with our three Kids.

The landscape, the sea, the nature, the Beach, everything remember in a beautiful movie where you are dreaming....

Especially the pool is very good for the Kids, Swimmingpool whenever you want, going down to the beach, enjoy the warm water of the sea.

Beautiful Restaurants and a very good supermarket in about a few minutes to drive. The villa is very good conditioned, clean, everything to use, fully perfekt.

We love to get back to this wonderful place, enjoy the quietness, nature and flair of italy.

This delightfully tranquil rural area is very unspoilt and of outstanding natural beauty. The house sits on a small hill overlooking Monte Amaro, the old village of Torino di Sangro, and has views of the sea.

There are many festivals, and a wealth of small local restaurants. The wine of the region is excellent, especially the Montepulciano, and the beaches are pretty and safe. The local people are wonderfully friendly and helpful.
