Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Città Sant'Angelo - Casa Felice / Bella Vista

Two beautiful 3 bedroom houses sleeps from 6 to 9, amid olive groves & vineyards

Two beautiful, brand new spacious houses are available, close to Silvi and the beautiful Adriatic coast. Built in traditional Italian style they have a large fabulous pool terrace featuring outside kitchen and pool side bar. Have a relaxing drink at the bar beside the 10m x 5m Roman pool, and watch the sun go down behind the distant mountains from under the shade of the electronic retractable awning.

Also on the pool level is an outside shower, diving board, laundry and toilet plus sun loungers to relax on and soak up the glorious Italian sun.... and of course the essential BBQ for al fresco dining :-)

The houses are exquisitely furnished to a very high standard with quality solid oak furnishings throughout. Downstairs they are of open plan design with ceramic floors, leather suites, dining for all and a kitchen with a fully equipped kitchen with all you could need.

Upstairs each house has 3 large bedrooms all with double/king-size beds, ample wardrobe space and feature beamed ceilings There are two shower / bathrooms in each house with walk-in large shower enclosures or bath and bidets. In total there are 4 toilets in each house.

All household linens are provided including crisp white sheets to all beds and two large towels per person - one soft white towel for showers and one brightly coloured for the pool / beach. In addition all hand towels and tea towels are also provided.

The houses stand on the edge of a valley with olive groves and vineyards below and 360 degree panoramic view towards the medievel town of Citta san t'Angelo on the next hill top, just a 5 minute scenic drive away.

Beyond that there are spectacular views of the mountains and the National parks of Gran Sasso and Majella with their unique wildlife, including golden eagles which are often seen soaring over the house!

There are numerous fascinating typical stone villages which cling to the hilltops and drop into the valleys, all begging to be explored with their traditional markets spread around medieval churches and village plazas. There always seems to be a fiesta in one town or another and well worth the effort to visit at that time if you can!

Contact the owner: Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any query about our beautiful home. We visit regularly ourselves and have a good knowledge of the area. We also have a lovely English lady who is our agent in the area. She takes care of the house in our absence and speaks fluent Italian, which can be really helpful if your Italian is a little rusty.

We have found it necessary to make a small charge for air conditioning so that the facility is not mis-used, for example being left on all day when no-one is there, or being used when doors and windows are open.

Casa Felice: Casa Felice and Bella Vista have been built by close friends who each own one adjoining property. Each property is the mirror image of the other in design, but slightly different in facilities. The large pool and terrace area is shared by the two houses, but has ample room for all. There are separate dining facilities, sun beds and bbqs for each house at the pool side, and lots of room to spread out on either the patio area or the grass. The tranquillity of the location is matched only by the stunning views which will, quite simply take your breath away, and a fabulous sight to wake up each morning!!

The houses are especially suitable for little ones, as well as teenagers and the whole family. We can include a cot, high chair, child safety gates, children's plates and cutlery etc all at no additional cost.

As there is the option of pull-out beds on the ground floor, the houses are also suitable for the disabled and there is easy access to the toilets and wash facilities. There is a sloping pathway to the pool and gentle steps for easy access.

About Anita Grieve

Bella Vista and Casa Felice are owned by 2 families who are close friends, each family owning a house each. Whilst both houses are decorated with the same furniture, they therefore have a slightly different style. We all visit our holiday homes regularly during the year, but also offer rentals to holiday makers, especially in the summer months. Therefore everything has been done to a very high standard, because its how we ourselves like it to be, and each house is fully equipped for family use. We have children and grand children ourselves, so the house is especially suitable for little ones.

We all live in the UK but visit our houses regularly throughout the year - and when not in Italy we have the wonderful Pete and Tracey who take care of the houses for us. They live in a village nearby and maintain the houses and pool for us to a very high standard.They are also a great source of information about the area too so well worth chatting to.

Anita Grieve purchased this house in 2008

Why Anita Grieve chose Pescara

It is hard to describe in words what the view from the pool terrace and balconies is like....but it will quite simply take your breath away. This is what drew us tom this location....we stood on an empty plot of land....and looked at that view,......and we were absolutely speachless. It is truely magnificent. Photos simply do not do it justice....and you will only understand this when you have seen it yourself.!! We return many times a year, and it still has the same effect each time we stand on that south facing sun terrace, overlooking the pool and gaze out at the landscape.

The two families worked together with the builders to create a house in the style of local buildings that was sympathetic to the area, and that was bright and modern but with character. I believe we have achieved this, and I hope that you will agree. It is open, airy and spacious and beautifully equipped with al that you could need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking for a lovely house during your holiday this is the place! This lovely villa consists of two houses, and both are fully equiped with everything you need, and more. We were with a group of 10 people so we rented both Casa Felice as Bella Vista. The houses are very clean. The views are breath-taking! The colours of the surroundings are so pretty in this region. I constantly contacted Anita and she is very kind, helpfull, patient (I had a lot of questions and all questions were answered), and reacts very fast. I met Tracey as well, she was very kind. The rooms are all very nice and spacious enough, the kitchen is great and the balcony and pool area are the best! If you only rent one house, realise there could be another familiy next to you. The pool area must be shared then. Also take precautions for muscitos (we were there in June and there were quite a lot). In conclusion, I can advise both the region as the house for the best holiday.

Anita, thank you for everything. We had a lovely stay!All the best.Kind regards, Celine

Fantastic villa, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Felice this July for our holidays. We have friends living in Pescara and this Villa was fantastic to meet them and spent time visiting their fantastic land.

The house is simply great! Very well furnished and with all comforts.

It is not too far from the sea, which I have to admit is not the best in Italy (especially compared to Sicily or Sardinia) but the beaches are simply fantastic and well organized! So it depends on what you are looking for...

During our 15 days stay, we only went there twice or three times: we were looking for something different.

We enjoyed the peaceful and astonishing landscape of the villa and the quiet and relaxing pool terrace. The villa has a strategic position also to visit the Maiella mountains. We really enjoyed going there climbing and trekking along the rivers.

We had five kids with us, from 11 to 2 years old. The swimming pool was fantastic for them, but they also enjoyed the countryside. The place is so quiet that they could walk and bike around by them selves.

They manage to make friends with the neighbors and get free veggies and fruit from their garden!!!

There was another group of people in the attached villa. We got along with them very well and the kids also enjoyed playing and swimming with their new English friends... We were lucky!

If we ever go and visit our friends in Pescara again, I would definitely go for villa Felice!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed at this beautiful villa in late June. We all loved the fields around us--sunflowers, olives and not to mention the butterflies fluttering around the various flower beds dotted around. The scenery is simply stunning. The villa is one of the best equipped we have stayed at. It's rare to find any spices in the kitchen but there were cook books too. The air con is a god send as temperatures climbed to 35 degrees. The open plan living area is huge and we enjoyed having the odd meal in the dining area and watching the latest mini series on the TV. There are plenty of bathrooms, and the bedrooms were very comfortable and decorated in a calming shades.

The in-house manual was very informative, giving advice on the timing of local markets, locations of supermarkets and the SHOE HYPERMARKET! All the restaurant recommendations were good--we loved the variety, from buffet oriental to local meat fest. We would not hesitate to recommend this property. If you are looking for a bit of peace, tranquility, lovely beaches in a beautiful undiscovered region of Italy, look no further!

Thank you for a great stay, Anita. We really appreciate the small touches and the huge attention to detail you put in that made our stay at your place a real treat and ver memorable experience.

Stunningly beautiful jewel of a property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this wonderful property. The villa is more than home from home as you will want for nothing. The property is furnished amazingly with a modern open space design to make the most of the stunning views. I can’t overstate the views from this villa other than to say it will be locked in our vision/memory for many months. You have to experience it! All amenities, Shopping, Restaurants, Beaches and historical sightseeing locations are close by and very accessible. I wish we had booked it for longer than one week. Anita the owner is very attentive before and during the stay to ensure everything is OK. Two memorable holidays spent here, I look forward to my third ASAP!!

Paradise found in Abruzzo

  • 5 of 5

We referred to Casa Felice as "Paradise". This beautiful home and property contributed to a wonderful family vacation. We plan to return again and again. All that was explained in the online description was absolutely accurate and possibly understated. Communication with Anita (homeowner) and Tracy (caretaker) was always polite, professional, prompt, and timely. They were both wonderful to work with and genuinely cared about our experience before, during and after our trip. They truly understand hospitality and guest service. Casa Felice is breathtaking inside and outside. The amenities were greater than expected and we were impressed by how spacious, clean, bright, up to date, modern and well-kept everything was in this spectacular home. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen appliances and tools were excellent. A drawer filled with maps, brochures, restaurant pamphlets, guides and a guest's "how to / question & answer" manual, was much appreciated. We wish we could have stayed for longer than one week. We should have booked for two weeks but will remember this when we book it again. The view from Casa Felice was so amazing that my words are not able to truly capture how magnificent it is. "Stunning" and "breathtaking" are words that only start to describe how beautiful it is there. The privacy of this terrific home was part of the peacefulness, yet it is within 10 minutes of town. We visited family in Rome two times, making the trip in about 2.5 hours. We enjoyed the beach in Pescara and the restaurants in Montesilvano, but the best part was staying "home" enjoying the relaxing deck, patio, and pool, gawking at the amazing views, dining on local, fresh, wholesome food and wine. We give it our highest possible recommendation to our family and friends.It was a privilege to stay at Casa Felice.

We try to think what we would like on our holiday, and then provide that to all. Its so good to know that our efforts are noticed and appreciated. Thank you so much for your lovely review.

These fantastic properties lie in a rural location on the edge of a valley with a shimmering lake below, and amid olive groves, vineyards and rolling countryside. They are just 6km from the popular resort of Silvi, with its safe golden beaches and clear warm waters of the Adriatic Sea, and 17km from the city of Pescara with its working fishing harbour and fabulous shopping. The area boasts many picturesque towns and villages well worthy of a visit to explore the narrow cobbled streets and peruse the typical Italian shops, peppered with small cafes where you can sit to watch the world go by. The area is totally unspoilt by mass commercial holiday companies and retains all the charm of the real Italy, where life moves a little slower and every day is a joy. The local food and wines are typical of the region and of excellent quality. The properties are close to two important national parks, Majella and Gran Sasso and under an hour from the nearest ski resorts.

Other Activities:

Karting

10 pin bowling

Horse riding

Cycling

Ski: The nearest ski slopes are approx 45 minutes from the house. There is skiing on both Majella and Gran Sasso within easy reach using good motorway links.
