Case del Colle is placed amongst rolling hills, valleys and mountains such that there is a never ending variety of scenery to gaze over at this stunning hill top villa.
The villa is well equipped with thoughtful attention to detail and all the fittings are done to a high standard. Very comfortable bed and pillows!
I'm looking forward to returning next year. Take care with finding the property - if you follow the careful instructions you will be fine particularly if you have sat nav.

“5* views from a 5* house”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

Magnificent views, supremely comfortable accommodation, brilliantly equipped kitchen and a fantastic pool combine to make this a super place for a holiday. Be as active as you like or just laze by the pool, cooled by the breeze across the top of the hill.... I would suggest some activity if only so that you can go out and enjoy the local restaurants in the evenings. Try the ice cream parlours in Penne and a 13 course meal at the nearby agritourismo Cignale. We loved our time at Casa Del Colle and are sure you will too.

So pleased you had such a good time at Casa del Colle and that you enjoyed the local restaurants as well as the Italian ice cream! Lots of guests have said they planned to be quite active but once there just loved being at the house and totally relaxed in the outside space where there is sun and shade to suit all.

“Forget Tuscany - super classy villa set in dramatic surroundings”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed for a wonderful week in August. Unfortunately we had 2 days of rain which ate into valuable pool time, but the variety of activities suggested by the owners for wet-weather were excellent and certainly gave us an appreciation for the surroundings that we wouldn't have got had we just stayed by the pool all the time (when you see it you'll understand why!). The rest of the time was spent in glorious sunshine and we were sure to make the most of the beautifully landscaped outside area and pool; loved clinging to the edge and looking out over the city of Penne. At the house we were greeted by a litre of the owners olive oil and a little hamper of things to tide us over, which was a lovely touch and really started the whole experience for us.

Highlights - the landscape is pretty hilly and windy so you MUST hire a car, which means you can then visit the huge variety of ancient and simply stunning towns. The local town of Penne is certainly worth a visit, Chieti for its grandeur and size, Atri for all the dramatically perched buildings on top of a hill and Santa Steffano for similar reasons. Go up the mountains that are looming over the villa. Umm...and go swimming in the river that takes you to the nearby lake! We went on a little saunter down to the lake and happened upon it (probably a 30 minute walk from the house). Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Thank you for such a comprehensive review of both your stay at Casa del Colle and the visits you made to nearby places. You were quite clearly busy exploring during your week but you also had time to enjoy the pool. Really liked your comment about clinging to the edge and looking at the view of Penne.

“Fabulous accomodation in idyllic location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Casa del Colle is a truly wonderful spot for a lazy family holiday. The view from the terrace is genuinely breathtaking - on a clear day it extends from the sea by Pescara all the way to the Gran Sasso mountains behind the property. The house itself is a spacious and thoughtfully designed modern villa. It was certainly the best quality holiday accomodation I have ever rented - beautiful stone floors, light airy bedrooms, well-appointed new kitchen with every possible utensil and vessel and even a large "man cave" with pool table and table football in the basement, which kept the kids highly entertained. Even with 7 of us there was plenty of space and the large saltwater pool was a joy to swim in. Part of the charm of the property is that it is situated in a very untouristy area - it seemed like a genuine taste of rural Italy and for us, the lack of obvious things to do made for a very relaxing time, with nothing to worry about except assembling an unhurried lunch or ambling into the nearby town for fabulous fresh pasta or another bottle of the excellent local wine. There are plenty of local walks - including the stunning Campo Imperatore in the middle of the nearby Gran Sasso mountains, should something more strenuous tempt you. I can't recommend this as a villa or as a location highly enough.

Thank you for your recommendation and lovely to read about how much you enjoyed your stay at Casa del Colle and exploring the local area too. It is a large villa and plenty of space to be together and space to relax or be quiet as well.
The salt water pool is so kind to the skin compared to chlorine and it is indeed a joy to swim in as you say.
Delighted you got to sample the amazing freshly made pasta from the local shop in Penne too.

Thank you and thrilled to hear you had an enjoyable week for all the family.
The pool seems to be a real favourite with families and I'm told it really improves their children's swimming by the end of the week or two!
The views are difficult to describe or to photograph well but everyone certainly comments on them.
Hope to see you back one day.
