Cottage overview

The Casetta is a separate one up, one down building. You can choose to stay on your own patio and still have total privacy from the main farm house. You have shared access to all the shared areas of the grounds, including the pool and play areas.

Holiday in the beautiful Italian region of Abruzzo the "garden of Italy" and land o f 1000 Castles, staying in an 18th century stone farm house. If you are looking for a brilliant holiday to light up your year, you have come to the right place.
The Abruzzo region is a remote region often overlooked by tourists. It has spectacular natural scenery, medieval castles and villages, monasteries, and Roman ruins. Two-thirds of the Abruzzo's land is mountainous with the rest being hills and coast. A third of the region is designated as national or regional parkland. Bordering regions are the Marche to the north, Lazio to the west, Molise to the south, and the Adriatic Sea to the east.

Beaches. Abruzzo’s 129 km long sandy coastline (interrupted in places by pebble beaches) is home to many popular beach resorts. Beaches worth visiting are in Fossacesia and Vasto Marina, on Abruzzo’s southern coast, many of the seaside resorts are considered among the best in Italy. Beaches of Abruzzo are pristine and the waters of the Adriatic are warm. Lifeguards are operative full-time on most italian beaches, during the summer season. It is best to follow posted warning signs and status flags describing the sea's condition on the day you decide to take a swim. Most beaches have corded off bathing areas - pass these at your own risk, as the waters deepen significantly very quickly.

Skiing. Abruzzo has 15 ski resorts with 368 km of runs in 172 different ski tracks, all within a couple of hours drive from Rome. The most popular resorts are Roccaraso, Campo Felice, Campo Imperatore. Located on the highest altitudes of the Apennines, these ski areas are at heights nearly comparable to many resorts in the Alps. Because of their proximity to the Adriatic and winter precipitation patterns, they often have more snow than the Alps. Abruzzo also is popular for cross country skiing, especially on the high plain of Campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso as well as the Piana Grande in the Majella.

Hiking, horseback riding, mountain climbing and sightseeing. Abruzzo's extensive park system lies within two hours of Rome or less and includes natural beauty akin to national parks in the western United States. Within Abruzzo's parks lie some of Italy's most beautiful ancient hill towns rivalling those of Tuscany and Umbria.

ZOO. Near the little village of Civitella Casanova is a nice zoo: Parco Zoo La Rupe. It's built on a mountain with a beautiful view and it features many animal species.

Rock Climbing Abruzzo offers a great destination for rock climbing, beach combing, and mountain biking. Amazing rock climbing areas are: Petrellia Liri, Roccamorice, San Vito, Assergi, Monticchio, Capestrano, Fara Sam Martino.

Museums In L’Aquila, one can visit the National Museum of Abruzzi, with sections for palaeontology, archaeology and medieval art (painting, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, lace, sacred ornaments, glass windows). Pescara has the Museum of the Folk Traditions of Abruzzo, which holds a didactic archaeological exhibition. The Pinacoteca Civica in Teramo displays beautiful majolicas. Chieti’s National Museum of Antiquities houses important relics of the ancient Italics, Greeks and Romans, including some remarkable pieces such as the Warrior of Capestrano, of the fourth century B.C

We have just returned from a perfect and relaxing week at the beautiful rustic farmhouse, Casa Pietra set in fantastic rolling countryside and forest. The views to Atessa town set on the hilltop were quite wonderful, as were the views to the ocean seen through a crevice in the valley. The children enjoyed the plunge pool, which was not huge, but...

Stayed in apartment (as opposed to main house), facilities basic, but perfectly adequate, located out in the wilds, and yet, shops, bars, and a town close by. Amazing large beaches 20 mins drive, lots of historic places to visit, shops, restaurants and bars. Robert is a very nice well-informed host, and a superb cook too!

Had a week in August for a last minute get-a-way. We want somewhere quiet and relaxing. The scenery is breath-taking. Stayed in the apartment to the main house. Cracking little base with everything you needed. The owner Robert was fantastic and really helpful. If you like busy places with noise head elsewhere!

Casa Pietra
I bought this beautiful farm house in 2006. I have spent time renovating and developing the property for holidays. I try and keep the original, character features, while adding modern features. Every bedroom has an ensuite shower room, two have a bath. I chose this house because of its location. We have fantastic views of the medieval town Atessa, and you can see the Sea! Although we are rural, we are just five minutes to shops, bars and restaurants. Therefore peace and tranquility when at home... maybe the odd tractor, or donkey. This really is Secret Italy - not many tourists, manly local people and their guests during the holiday month of August.
