The owners live on the top floor, and will happily recommend places to go, historic and archeological sites, restaurants and wineries, and where to buy the best and freshest products to eat and drink in the spacious dining room or on the sunny terrace or the balcony overlooking the sea. We can also organize food tours to artisanal producers of olive oil, cheese, honey, cured meats, as well as visits to our favorite local wineries.

Although summer is the prime season for beachgoers, many guests prefer September and October, when the crowds are gone but the weather is still fine. This is the time of the grape harvest, when the cantinas are busy crushing and processing the grapes for the next vintage.

What a great place - or rather, what a great palace! The location couldn't be better, literally just a couple of minutes to walk across the road and onto the beach, with wonderful views of the sea and the coastline from inside the house. Secure private parking is very useful.

Inside is incredible, an imposing entrance hall, with a marble staircase; beautifully-furnished (and beautifully-kept) rooms; and a modern kitchen. To the rear of the property is a huge secluded garden terrace with plenty of space for family eating.

American owners Gail and Vincent live at the top of their palazzo and are always on hand - but never intrusive - with helpful tips and advice so you get the best from your stay. Mention needing some wine or a loaf of bread and Vincent's likely to drive you off to a local winery or bakery!


The beach is naturally a magnet for kids and there are plenty of nearby places during the day for snacks and ice-creams - and countless restaurants in the area for evening meals. And of course being Italy, everywhere is extremely kid-friendly!

All-in-all, a real taste of luxury for our week's stay in clean, comfy surroundings with friendly hosts. Couldn't have asked for more!

Staying at this villa right on the beautiful Adriatic coast would be a great holiday experience but add in the presence of the owners Gail and Vince and it becomes something very special. They are always happy to assist in any way that they can to make your stay perfect -.nothing is too much trouble for them when it comes to helping you get the most out of what amazing Abruzzo .has to offer.
The pictures are better than words to show how beautiful the house and gardens are. The house is pristine and Vassily the gardener does an amazing job with the grounds. How many places can you wander from the house and depending on the season pick lemons, clementines, figs, strawberries, grapes and nuts? And just outside the front of the house is the lovely Fossacesia blue flag beach and historic Trabocchi coast.

This is our third year returning to this amazing house and area and it just gets better year after year , this year we choose not to do as much sight seeing and just really enjoyed the house spending the days on the beach and the evenings cooking with wonderful local fresh produce and eating on the beautiful terrace with the of course some amazing wine that Vince made sure we never run out off we really did have a truly relaxing time and Gail and Vince as always the perfect hosts.
We would definitely recommend this property brilliant location for the beach and for the other local facilities , shops and restaurants , the house is true to its description and extremely well kept and clean and customer service does not get any better.

What a Wonderful week

Dear Gail and Vincent, What A Week! We just loved your home and marvel at what you have accomplished. However, The real love of your villa belongs to you both. The moment we met, we felt as though we had known you both for years.
Vince, you have taken us to places and showed and explained everything. We could not have seen all this beauty by ourselves if we had stayed for 3 weeks. You are a fantastic and tireless tour guide.that also knew all the best restaurants and trattorias. We just loved being with you.
Gail, you are so full of spirit and happiness that it lights up the whole house. Your touches have created a warm and lovely home. The beautiful sitting room and the lovely bedrooms and bathrooms combined with a great kitchen make this a real home away from home. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning on the balcony over looking the sea, and each evening having cocktails on the large terrace. What a lovely feeling one has when they first step into your home.
You are a great couple and we have found new friends. See you next May

Just what we needed!

We are returning "guests" of Vince and Gail. The "guest" word is probably not realistic as we are more like family, than guests! They were so helpful in making our stay relaxing and being able to get away. Of course, waking up and looking out the window at the Adriatic Sea with beautiful weather certainly helps! We hosted some of our Italian relatives for a 20-person Italian style fish dinner on the back deck and ate (and of course, drank wine) underneath the canopy of grapes and the Italian moonlight. Bella! This is a fantastic place to stay any time of year, especially if you want to see the Abruzzo (east) side of Italy. We were able to drive our rental from Rome in less than 3 hours. Having relatives in Italy is certainly a bonus for our family, but if you don't have relatives, Vince and Gail can fill-in, to make your stay comfortable and take the stress of being in a different country, as they will provide you with things to do, places to go, information, and even hang out, and dare I say, drink wine with you if you want! Thanks for another fantastic stay! Ciao!
