VILLA LA MAJELLETTA

Casoli Villa Rental Photos and Description

Country villas just for couples, set between the mountains and the Adriatic sea

Welcome to a different type of Italian villa rental holiday, which in April 2014 was featured on BBC TV's travel series 'Escape to the Continent'.

Just three tranquil villas for two, set in beautiful, unspoiled countryside, with what one of our guests calls 'the best views in Abruzzo'.

Inside each villa, it's light, cool and airy, with individually-controlled air-conditioning; central heating; and free wireless internet access.

Right outside your door, there's your own private space on the big sun terrace, with a wooden table, stripey sun umbrella and a couple of wooden chairs. Perfect for breakfast; al fresco dining; or a nightcap under the stars.

Just for our guests, there's a sparkling salt-water swimming pool, bordered by olive trees, with another sun terrace. And with never more than six people here at any time, there's plenty of space to spread out and relax, with enough comfy sunbeds and umbrellas for everyone.

With well over 400 villa rentals in Abruzzo available through HomeAway, we never forget you have a choice, so we'll always try that little bit harder to ensure you get the very best value for your money and have a wonderful time on your Villasfor2 holiday.

That's why in 2010, 2011 and 2012 our villas earned more 5-star reviews on the HomeAway website than any of their other Abruzzo properties.

Check out the Guest comments below - and take a look at our website www.villasfor2.com to find out more about us and our Abruzzo villa holidays !

More Details

Details for Villa La Majelletta 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

Like each of our three Abruzzo holiday villas, Villa La Majelletta rose from the ruins of a 19th century barn, keeping to the traditional local style of cream-washed walls; dark green shutters; and big, curved roof tiles. Each of our villas is split-level. Downstairs are cool tiled floors, white walls and wood beams, with double glass doors opening onto your own private area on a big south-facing sun terrace. You've a comfortable sitting area to relax, read, or watch a DVD; a dining table and chairs; a well-equipped kitchen with gas hob, oven and fridge; and a clean, modern tiled bathroom with sink, WC, bidet and walk-in shower. Upstairs there's a wood-floored, galleried mezzanine with a kingsize double bed - or, if you prefer, twin singles. There's plenty of room too for all your holiday bits-and-pieces and a small personal safe. And if you need to keep in touch during your holiday, we have free WiFi access and fantastic cellphone reception !
Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • non smoking only

Hello...

We're David and Pauline Brenner.

David was formerly a television presenter with the BBC; Pauline worked in IT. We moved to Abruzzo from Somerset in south-west England in October 2007 and now live here permanently and look after our three holiday rental villas.

David & Pauline Brenner purchased this villa in 2008

We'd looked at 96 different properties before coming across the one we finally bought.

Just take in our surroundings and our amazing views and you'll understand why it took about 10 seconds to realise we'd found exactly what we'd been looking for !

ERHOLSAMER URLAUB IN DEN ABRUZZEN

  • 4 of 5
Wir haben unseren Urlaub in Casoli und den Abruzzen sehr genossen!
Die Wohnung haben wir sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet vorgefunden. Sie liegt sehr versteckt und ruhig und wenn man sie einmal gefunden hat, will man gar nicht mehr weg... Die Aussicht in die Landschaft ist traumhaft!
Begrüßt wurden wir von den Vermietern Pauline und David mit Wein aus der Region und Olivenöl aus eigenem Anbau. Ebenfalls inklusive waren zahlreiche Ausflugstipps. Anfang Oktober war es in den Dörfern wenig touristisch, wir hatten das Glück sehr traditionelle Erntedankfeste mit erleben zu können.
Auch das Wetter ließ es noch zu, den Pool des öfteren zu nutzen. Gerne wieder!
Kirsten und Marc

2ND TIME AT VILLAS 4 2

  • 5 of 5
THIS WAS OUR SECOND TIME AT VILLAS 4 2 & ONCE AGAIN WE COULD NOT FAULT THEM.THE VILLAS ARE SPOTLESS AS IS THE POOL & SO REFRESHING. DAVID '& PAULINE ARE ALWAYS ON HAND AND NOTHING IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THEM. WE ATE MOST NIGHTS AT THE VILLA WITH A BOTTLE OF WINE (OR 2) ON OUR TERRACE WHICH HAS WONDERFUL VIEWS AND SO PEACEFUL. THERE ARE EXCELLENT RESTURANTS NEARBY AND LOTS OF PLACES TO VISIT. WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE VILLAS TO ANYONE THINKING OF HOLIDAYING IN ABBRUZZO YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED & WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!!! PAT&DOM

A PERFECT PLACE TO BE!

  • 5 of 5
Our holiday could not have started any better.
Thanks to David's (the owner) perfectly written driving instructions from Pescara airport southwards to the beautiful Val di Sango, we reached Villas for 2 quite relaxed. Despite our late arrival (we had a late evening flight) David greeted us cheerfully like long awaited friends and showed us the way to our Villa.
From the private sun terrace with chairs, table and sunbrella, we entered into a lovely living area equipped with comfy furniture, intimate lighting and of course a TV (in case your better half wants to watch the footy - or Coronation Street as the case may be). The adjacent kitchen and dining area has room for anything from a quick espresso in the morning to intimate dinner's for two in the evening - you'll just have to make them yourself though.

The shower room is elegantly modern and the spacious bedroom area on the mezzanine floor takes full advantage of the double height space.
As I said, it was unfortunately dark when we arrived so we missed out on the view (we just assumed there was one...) but of course that did not deter us from quickly settling in and to open the complimentary bottle of wine whilst watching the endless number of stars from the comfort of our terrace. Oh - what's that noise? Owls, crickets and other 'hot-summer's-night-noises' make a wonderful background soundtrack to the dance of the glowworms... I know, I know - but it's true!
The next morning, braced with a strong espresso and a croissant (or better 'cornetto' as they say in Italy), we stepped out of the Villa just to be greeted by the sunlit landscape of the rolling Abruzzo hills - it was picture perfect.
So perfect indeed that we decided to spend the day by the pool and not to drive around to see the numerous sites that David and Pauline, amongst other noteworthy things, so meticulously listed in their info brochure laid out in the Villa.

The following day had been reserved for the beach which is only a short drive away. The pebble beach was fine but there's a sandy beach only 10 minutes further - we were just too lazy to drive and could not wait to get into the water. Back at the Villa later we made a nice dinner and had a little more (ehem...) of that lovely red wine.

Villas for 2 is the perfect place to be for couples who want to get away, discover the wonderful Abruzzo landscape and kitchen or simply enjoy a 'grown-up' holiday!

A big thank you to David and Pauline! We can't wait until next time.

LA BELLEZZA D'ABRUZZO

La Bellezza d'Abruzzo
  • 5 of 5
A haven of peace and tranquility amidst a background of snowcapped mountains, green valleys and olive groves. VF2 offers an escape from the fast lane and time to reflect on the beauty of the countryside and a slower pace of life. The villas were spotlessly clean and spacious, the grounds are beautifully landscaped with lavender bushes adding to the fragrant atmosphere. We relaxed at the poolside with a good book and the company of the swifts dipping and diving into the water. We watched the changing light on the hillsides and the cloud gather over the snow capped mountains which are within easy reach from the Villas. We ate at the local restaurants like Lu Piccione where Paolo made us feel so welcome, and Bucaniere where we ate 2 courses plus wine for €10 each! Here you can get a coffee for less than £1! This is a great change from tourist Italy. We appreciated David's extensive local knowledge, advice and enthusiasm to ensure his guests have the best holiday possible.

COUNTRY BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay in Villas for 2 with our fabulous hosts, David and Pauline. We love staying here. The Villas are set in the beautiful rolling hills of Abruzzo among olive groves and wine vines with snow capped mountains looming in the distance. David takes impeccable care of you from arrival to departure. The Villas are beautifully done with all you need to make yourself at home. The well fitted kitchen allows for meals at home, though you might wish to eat often in the local delicious restaurants. There are suggestions with reviews listed in the unit, along with other information on things to see and places to visit. The pool area invites you to relax in the sun.

David is organized and efficient, providing excellent customer service. He and Pauline have truly created a peaceful haven for your stay. Their warm hospitality makes us want to hurry back!

Our three Abruzzo villas for two are set between the mountains and the sea, about 4 miles from the small village of Casoli.

It's a corner of Italy still untouched by mass tourism. Uncrowded and unspoiled - but less than an hour from Pescara Airport, which has direct flights to/from the UK with Ryanair.

Other Activities: Majella National Park. WWF nature reserve

Golf: Miglianico GC - host course for the 2009 Mediterranean Games golf event - is just under an hour for us. It's a par-72, 18-hole course of around 6200 yards off the guest tees. The course is well-kept and the greens are particularly fast and true.

Ski: The chairlift at Passo di Lanciano is an hour from us. The huge resort of Roccaraso - the biggest ski complex in the Apennines - is about 75 mins.

Both have a choice of black, blue and red runs; snowboarding; and cross-country-skiing.
