“360 degrees of panoramic bliss from this superb luxury villa.”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Stayed here or two weeks June 2017. Exactly what a holiday should be like. Fabulous well thought out luxury villa with everything you could possibly want. Most idyllic location for wide spread spectacular views of snow capped mountains to the Adriatic Sea interspread with the hilltop towns including the lovely Penne and the lake. We had excellent weather throughout the fortnight. This is a less tourist packed area which gives a true flavour of rural Italy. We had a local chef come and cook a meal for us at the villa one eve where we had local excellent Abruzzio wines with endless courses of fine Italian cuisine. Highly recommended.

Delighted to hear you had such a wonderful two weeks at Casa del Colle enjoying the spectacular views to the snow capped mountains. The good weather too must have made it just perfect for you.
It is always rather special for us when guests really do enjoy the local area and the regional food as much as we do.
This is the first time we have organised a chef to visit Casa del Colle to cook for guests and it clearly was a positive experience for all. Future guests may well be interested in repeating this, particularly if they have young children and they are not able to go out to a restaurant in the evening.
Thank you again for being such perfect guests and hope we can welcome you back at some time in the future.

“Luxury home in an awesome setting”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

With wide vistas incorporating both the Adriatic and the Gran Sasso mountain this villa provides sophisticated living in a rural idyll. The house is beautifully equipped for all ages, an excellent base for a family gathering. The produce grown locally is plentiful, delicious and great value, local restaurants are good too.

The attractions of the pool and shaded seating area were such that we visited less of the surrounding area than we'd planned. There is a great deal to enjoy, whether cycling or walking, visiting quaint ancient towns perched on hills, or museums and wineries. A perfect reason to come again!

“A fabulous villa overlooking beautiful Italian countryside to the Adriatic coast”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

This villa is a wonderfully relaxing place to spend a holiday with family and friends. The generous, exceptionally well appointed interior together with the stunning swimming pool and surrounding views are fabulous. We had a great time exploring the local area with an unforgettable bike ride around the hill villages on the Campo Imperatore plateau and a very enjoyable walk around Della Maiella mountains. It would be lovely to go back again one day and discover more of the locality.

“A fabulous holiday home with the most stunning views!”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I would thoroughly recommend this property as it pretty much has everything you would want. The house was spotless on arrival and the welcome hamper was very welcome given our time of arrival.

There is plenty of space both inside and out - we were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids and we never felt on top of each other. The pool and the views from the terrace are just stunning! The kitchen is very well equipped and made self catering very straight forward. The local pizzeria is excellent too however! The owners kept us well informed throughout the booking process and provided us with lots of information about the house and the surrounding area which we found very helpful. The location is perfect with being a relatively short drive up into the mountains and to the beach. We were a little worried about not having air conditioning but the relatively cool air at night and the fans in the rooms worked just perfectly for us. The bedding and towels were changed halfway through our 2 week holiday.

We most definitely hope to book this house again in the future and would recommend this to our family and friends.

Delighted to hear you had such a wonderful holiday at Casa del Colle and visiting the surrounding area. The views from the terrace and the pool are just stunning as you say but impossible to photograph as many guests have tried to! Thank you for being such excellent guests and you are most welcome back at any time in the future.

“Unspoilt Italian heaven”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

This is a truly superb villa in a very unspoilt and relatively unknown part of Italy. The house has clearly been built to a very high standard and in the most wonderful spot with panoramic views to the sea 20 miles away, over the nearby ancient hilltop town of Penne, and up to the Apennines behind. The pool is long, deep and very clean. The owners recommend trips to the local pizza restaurant (Stefano's, within walking distance), the nearby waterfall and wild swimming pool and up into the mountains to the weird and fabulous 'Little Tibet' area. We did all of theses things and none disappointed. One of the highlights we had not expected was the fact that, for an entire week, we did not hear another English voice. Never have we not wanted to leave a holiday so much! Truly deserving of an 'excellent' review.

“A little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

This Casa del Colle is a beautifully designed Villa, with exceptional features and built to a very high specification indeed. It felt more like a luxurious home than a holiday let and we felt immediately relaxed.

The kitchen is superbly equipped, with every possible utensil and even home-grown olive oil; all of which made cooking a joy.

All the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms or should I say, "wet rooms" were a new, almost glamorous experience for me!

The Casa offers spacious, beautiful facilities, displaying an artistic yet homely flair,
We barely used the main sitting room, enjoying the hospitality of the large kitchen table, where the ten of us could enjoy our meals, chat and play the odd game of Scrabble on the few occasions when the weather was inclement.
The weather in the area was variable at this time of year; consequently the panoramic, captivating and majestic views were a joy and ever-changing in what they revealed to the eye.
We enjoyed many walks and excursions into the mountains, which were exhilarating. The wild flower display in the meadows of the Campo Imperatore were something magnificent to behold, along with the delights of the DIY barbecue on the plains, surrounded by a ring of snowy Matisse cut-out mountain tops; paradise!
We spotted Eidelweiss and Gentiane, Saffron crocus amongst a myriad of dazzling floral gems.

The swimming pool is a perfect size and was invigorating and from which
we enjoyed observing many an aerial display by the local wild birds.
The people of the area were a delight, so friendly and helpful and eating out was excellent value. The local Pizzeria in Conaprato is a must! On both our rather "happy" walks home up the hill we were treated to a magnificent fire-fly display, illuminating the bushes and trees like Christmas fairy lights! We had never seen anything like it before, a real joy.

I think that this is not an overly touristic region, thus the locals were actually very pleased to speak with us, even in our novice Italian!
I would definitely recommend this villa and the region, if you are a person who likes an authentic experience.

Thank you Pascale for writing such a comprehensive review of your stay at Casa del Colle. I loved reading about the wild flowers, birds and the fire-fly displays on your "happy" walks home!
You are quite right that the villa was built as a holiday home and not a holiday let but it is rather special for us to read that others clearly enjoy the local area, people and restaurants as much as we do.
Thanks again for being such wonderful guests and respecting the house.
