If you are looking to be close to the sea and in a beautiful historic town, this is the rental for you. The property is as described with two nice bedrooms and a pull out sofa by the terrace. It is cool enough that you do not need air conditioning and the terrace overlooking the ocean is stunning! The town also has beautiful views and a handful of stores. It is very charming. You need a car or you can take the bus down to the sea. We tried many beaches along the seafront including Pineto, Silvi Marina and Monte Silvano. The beaches in Pineto are along a pine forest. Montesilvano has the large rocks which you can swim out to. All of the towns have restaurants and beach clubs on the sea as well as public areas. There is a large mall about 7 minutes from the house. If you are looking for a pool, the hotel Casa Nostra will allow you to swim there for 7 euros per person for half a day. They have a beautiful vista and pool. The owners are very helpful and respond to all questions. The local agents also are very nice and live very close. The kitchen is well equipped but does not have a dishwasher or microwave. In the beginning we had 6 people in the apartment which I would say is a little small. Four would be ideal. There are some excellent restaurants right in town so you can walk to them as well as a bar and gelateria right under the apartment. It took us about 7 minutes to drive down to Silvi Marina and about 10 to get to a beach which we did almost every day. Amazing hikes in the Gran Sasso mountains and beautiful towns and festivals all within about 20 minutes. Would highly recommend!
