Charming Farmhouse Retreat with private swimming pool and barbecue.

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Very short distance from both mountains and sandy beaches

A traditional farmhouse situated in the surroundings of Civitella Casanova, a magical village in the foothills of the majestic Gran Sasso chain which is part of the National Park of Monti della Laga. It has a strategic location: 35 minutes from Pescara Airport, 30 min from the sea and 15 min from the mountains.

It is an enchanted, self-catering retreat, ideal for families, couples or friends holidaying together and located in a pristine natural setting with rural paths that you can follow on foot, by car or cycle. The surrounding mountains, woods, streams and remote ancient villages offer a rich local culture with food markets and local produce.

The house has two large bedrooms upstairs, lounge, one bathroom with shower and a well equipped traditional Italian kitchen downstairs. Outdoors there is a very private fenced relaxation area with swimming pool, own bathroom and shower, garden, olive groove and barbecue shelter for our guests exclusive use.

Our sandy beaches and Riviera are a very short drive from the property making it possible to plan a day or two on the beach and a stroll along the coast. Also mountains are 20 min drive for a day in the woods.

The property location provides a unique opportunity to experience a variety of holiday solutions and offers still a surprisingly low level of holiday visitors.

About Alessandra Colangelo

We were born in the land of Abruzzo and loved the idea of sharing our Italian culture and heritage with people from around the world.

Why Alessandra Colangelo chose Civitella Casanova

This property was an hold farmhouse once inhabited by our family members. It was built in late nineteenth century. We decided to refurbish it and create a welcoming place for our guests where to spend a truly memorable holiday experience.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The area is still absolutely unspoiled and peaceful where to have a taste of real Italian dolce vita!

This farmhouse is located in an area that has a long culinary tradition. Nearby villages like Penne and Loreto hold a weekly food market rich in distinctive local produce of all kinds. To visit them is a sensory experience! Also, being the property still part of the original extended farmhouse which has next door a unit still inhabited by the only family left in the district means that you might sometime see some neighbors (adults or children no English speakers) sitting by their front door sunbathing or chatting offering a real portrait of the Italian dolce vita! Utility Room: There is 1 utility room. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Plenty of fresh towels and linen are provided. The property in cleaned every time guests leave us. Extra cleaning can be provided at an extra price. Please ask owner for info.

We had a great family holiday. The house was really well equipped. The pool was lovely and clean and great to relax after walking in the mountains. Would definitely go back.

Further Details:

Abruzzo enjoys a pristine natural setting and is an excellent destination for those who love mountain, flaura and fauna. Much of the area surrounding the house lies on the mountainous Eastern slopes of the Gran Sasso massif, ranging from 240 meters above sea level to 1581 meters at the summit of Monte Cioccola and providing good access to Voltigno, a great karst plateau at 1500m. Monte Gran Sasso is part of the Monti della Laga National Park and offers stunning scenery with forests, springs, waterfalls, ridges and towering rock faces. It is inhabited by Abruzzo Chamois, buzzards, peregrine falcons, deer, Apennine wolves, wild cats, and bears. This wild natural environment is dotted with archaeological sites, castles, shrines, monasteries, rock churches, hermitages and caves all of which can be visited by walking, cycling or riding. This magical landscape can also provide great opportunities for those interested in photography, drawing and painting.
