Italian holiday rental, with pool and stunning views. Just For Two
Here's a different type of Italy holiday just for the two of you...
One of just three tranquil villas - each of them only for couples - set in beautiful, unspoiled countryside, with wraparound views.
Converted from a 19th century barn, each of our villas is identical in layout and amenities, so none is 'better' than the others. Each has it's own private entrance and facilities.
Inside, you'll find your villa is light, cool and airy. There's a king-size double bed (or two singles if you prefer); a clean, modern, fully-tiled bathroom with walk-in shower enclosure; a kitchen with fridge, 4-burner hob, and oven (plus all the cutlery, glasses, pots, pans and utensils you'll need !); and space for you to relax and enjoy it all.
And air-conditioning, central heating, and wifi internet access are all included in the price.
Right outside your door, there's your own private space on the big sun terrace, with table, sun umbrella and a couple of chairs. Perfect for breakfast; al fresco dining; or a nightcap under the stars.
Alongside our pool, there's another big south-facing sun terrace, with comfy sunbeds and umbrellas.
All this - plus private car-parking - in a landscaped acre bordered by olive groves.
And where exactly are we ?
Welcome to Abruzzo - it’s Italy’s best-kept secret ! Well away from the beaten tourist track - yet easily accessible - the region offers fantastic-value holidays well away from Italy’s usual crowds.
Where is Abruzzo ? Right on Rome’s doorstep ! Head due east - and in an hour, you’ll be passing the signs welcoming you to the region.
With a larger proportion of protected landscapes in relation to its size than anywhere else on the continent, Abruzzo is known as ‘The Greenest Region in Europe’.
Within its boundaries are three National Parks, all offering pristine forests and mountains, with truly spectacular scenery - and home to wolves, bears and golden eagles - and crossed by well-signposted trails along which you can just go for a stroll - or a serious hike.
Or if you prefer to be beside the sea, within half-an-hour of us are the superb, sandy beaches of the Adriatic.
In winter you can ski; in summer the temperatures are reliable and settled. And the pace of life here is laid-back, relaxed and friendly !
