APARTMENT 2

Castiglione Messer Raimondo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms, 2 shower rooms, sleeps 10 in total, with pool

Villa Collecimino is a spacious, self-catering, detached property with plunge pool, located in 3.5 acres of orchards, olive groves and agricultural land on top of a hill 550 metres above sea-level, with stunning panoramic views of the Appennine mountains on one side and the Adriatic sea on the other. Both apartments have terraces where you can dine, sunbathe or just enjoy the beautiful views of Abruzzo. It is just 40 minutes from Pescara airport, 30 minutes from the beaches and 40 minutes from the mountains. The villa consists of two separate self contained apartments each with their own private entrance. The apartments can also be rented together (at a discount) - ideal for a holiday with extended family or with groups of friends. Please see our own website for more details. Guests are welcome to make use of the gardens and grounds surrounding the property. There are proper roads all the way from the airport to Villa Collecimino - no dirt tracks to negotiate!

Villa Collecimino: Ideal for rest and relaxation, Villa Collecimino is located in 3.5 acres of orchards, olive groves and agricultural land. It is situated 550 metres above sea-level in a small hamlet which has regular visits from a mobile baker, butcher, and fishmonger. There is a large supermarket and a range of shops just a 10 minute drive away in Cesi. 15 minute drive from the historic medieval towns of Penne and Castiglione MR. There are many wonderful places to eat locally - 5 minutes' walk from an 'agriturismo' offering delicious meals from home-grown produce, and a short drive from many other restaurants as well as the best seafood restaurant we have ever visited.

If you would like to visit our own website, please click on the link under location.

Attractions and Excursions: The Gran Sasso and Majella National Parks are just a short drive away. You can enjoy majestic mountain scenery with a wide variety of flora and fauna, and, if you are lucky, you may spot a wild bear, wolf or chamois. On the edge of the National Park is Castelli, a beautiful medieval town nestled in the mountains, renowned for its hand-painted ceramics. (There are many interesting medieval hilltop towns and villages in the area.) In the other direction, just 30-40 minutes from our villa, are the pine-fringed, clean sandy beaches of the Adriatic, that stretch for more than 15 miles. Other attractions include golf, winter sports, and, if you feel the need for some pampering, you could try one of Abruzzo’s thermal spas - the waters in this area are renowned for their healing and detoxifying properties.

We have lived in Newhaven, East Sussex on the south coast of the UK, since 1997. We love views - our house in Newhaven is perched on top of a hill with views right out to sea - we can see the ships in the shipping lanes plus great views of the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry every time it comes in and all the boats going in and out of the marina. We run a small translation business from home - my husband Marek is a linguist and I do all the admin, finances and day to day running of the business. In our spare time - I sing at weddings, funerals and with a chamber choir and Marek likes to dance - 'strictly ballroom' style.

Annie or Marek Lorys purchased this apartment in 2004

We went to Italy in 2004 looking for a property and stumbled upon this one on our 2nd day. We fell in love with it and its extraordinary and stunning location and there was no looking back......

Stunning location, stunning views of both the Apennine mountains in one direction and the Adriatic sea in the other. Both apartments have great views. It is also very peaceful and unspoilt.

June 06 We can only reiterate our fellow guests' comments, so beautiful and peaceful. We found ourselves wanting to whisper so as not to disturb the silence! One week was not quite enough time for us... we hope to return soon to this breathtaking scenery and lovely apartment, which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week in the apartment and have fallen in love with Abruzzo - its wilderness and pure beauty is awesome! Best of all were our meals on the patio watching the everchanging views. Thank you Marek & Annie for sharing this wonderful place with us.

Our first holiday together and it was magical! What a perfect place to come and stay at. Really relaxed, enjoyed visiting Atri market and Penne and who can forget the beautiful views of the mountains - meal times will not be the same at home! Truly a wonderful holiday in Italy's last wilderness - Abruzzo!

Beautiful house, stunning location......

  • Submitted: Sep 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We found the house to be very beautiful, in a stunning location and the presence of Vincenzo and Eva [our keyholders] makes it a joy to stay at. The book of information compiled by you was indispensable to enjoying the region. But it is not easy to navigate as a non-local - there are no street lights on the mountain roads and the roads are not in good condition. We really enjoyed the walks you described in the book and the garden and pool really enhance the house further. In short we really enjoyed our stay - Abruzzo is stunning, rustic and authentic. We want to thank you for the wonderful holiday we had!
