Farmhouse -
3 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Atessa, Province of Chieti, Abruzzo
The luxurious farmhouse has a master bedroom with en-suite bath & shower room, two more large double bedrooms, (one with en-suite shower room) which can sleep up to 8 people, a large lounge with a wood burner, a range cooker with large dining area to share and prepare the all important local produce, a laundry room and additional shower room.

The interior is elegant and simple, with restored brick vaulted ceilings, traditionally Italian and with all the modern facilities you would expect. The only intrusive sounds are the cuckoos calling, yet you are only 40 minutes away from the airport town of Pescara where stylish shopping and night life are in abundance.

The estate itself is tranquil and designed to capture the Italian sun, so you may choose not to make the short drive to the beautiful unspoilt beaches, to pick up a bargain fro...

If you want to chill out with mountain surroundings this is for you. From the rear elevated patio you can see the picturesque fortress city of atessa, an artists dream. The accommodation is a converted stone farm house. Italian rural living at its best. You ll need a car to get the best of the area. Recommend ++

Thank you Peter, im very pleased you had a great time! .....looking forward to seeing the paintings when they are finished :)

We spent 2 weeks at the Casa Pietra staying in the Cassetta Apartment. This was perfectly adequate and could easily accommodate 4 people comfortably. There was a kingsize bed for us upstairs which made the 2 week stay worthwhile and meant we could always get a good nights sleep. We arrived late evening at Pescara Airport, where Robert kindly greeted...

Additional amenities & feature info
In the morning, you will wake up overlooking the protected evergreen forests and step out onto your balcony for a view of the historic town of Atessa. Then you can breakfast on the terrace, selecting whichever view you like, olive groves, snow capped mountains, even one of the sea! As Casa Pietra was built in the 18th Century, the solid stone walls are several feet thick which keeps the property super cool in the summer, yet warm in the winter, all naturally.

The farmhouse has been lovingly restored, and achieves the right marriage between revealing original features, such as vaulted ceilings, bedroom balconies with ironwork, and stone archways whilst providing the most modern facilities you would expect to find.

About the neighbourhood
The house is in the province of Chieti, between the Majella National Park and the Adriatic. This area is considered one of the regions most interesting areas, due to its stunning natural beauty and landcapes, as well as its extraordinary cultural features.

The area is distinguished by the presence of some of Abruzzo's most important fortresses: the majestic castle of Roccascalegna is one one of the most important. Lanciano, one of the most important and well preserved old town, with turreted alls, picturesque narrow street and churches.

Vasto clutches at an insecure cliff to dominate the coast, in an astonishing natural scenario. A thriving commercial centre, lively culture and a wealth of monuments and works or art.

Atessa is our local town and stands on two hills and has s...
Getting around
Its best to have your own car to get around in, however on request the owner can offer taxi services. Local buses run from Atessa, and offer a very comprehensive list of routes - even Rome and Naples. We have a main line train station which can whip you up north or down south - its a great service.
