We were two families of 5 (6 children between 4 and 10) who stayed in this amazing house. There was plenty of room for all of us and we used the beautiful and well maintained pool every day. The house is so spacious, modern, clean and well kept that it felt like we were at a resort. No other place came close after we left Penne, so I would recommend you end your trip at this place. We can't wait to book again!
This superb villa is set in beautiful hills 3 miles from Penne. The views are magnificent with snow capped mountains in two directions and hill top Penne looking East. It is quiet and off the main tourist track and gives a more authentic view of Italy at its best. Lovely warm Adriatic waters are within a 45min drive with lovely sandy beaches near to Pescara. The villa itself is superbly equipped with the best (14 metre) pool that I've experienced at villas on the continent. The villa has electric shutters over all windows and doors to help security and keeping the villa cool. Marble floors are throughout and we didn't even touch the games room with pool table and table football. The kitchen is very well equipped too with everything you will need and there is also basic foodstuffs there with herbs and some other staples. For a peaceful luxury retreat watching each morning and evening swifts, house martins and swallows as they dip into the swimming pool, it is unbeatable.
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.

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!
Was fantastic. The property could not have been better. Loved it. I would highly recommend you go here.
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.

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.
