LOVELY COUNTRY VILLA WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS NEAR TO COAST, GOLF AND MOUNTAINS

Vacri Villa Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 3 bedroom apartment sleeps 6 in rural location set in its own grounds

Self-contained apartment in a recently renovated and extended 100 year old villa with all the modern facilities you would expect set in 1/2 acre of olive groves and fruit trees. There is a spacious sitting room with TV, DVD player and CD/radio/MP3 player, a separate kitchen/dining room. 2 double bedrooms with access to a balcony and terrace, a twin bedded room and spacious modern bathroom. There are several terraces around the house where you can relax, sun bathe, eat and drink with a full range of garden furniture. There is ample off road parking space. The area is peaceful and quiet apart from the odd tractor! The house is on the edge of the hilltop village of Vacri which has all essential amenities including shops, bank, post office, bars, cafes, chemist and church. There are lots of restaurants, pizzerias and trattorias within a short drive as well as a small shopping comple

More about our house: We have taken great care during the renovation and extension of our country villa to retain its traditional feel. There are very thick walls in the oldest parts, vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and timber shutters on all windows. The apartment is furnished to a high standard with a blend of traditional and contemporary design. The pictures are all my own photographs.

A contemporary designed extension harmonises with the old and provides additional rooms, a beech wood stair and great terraces for outdoor living and enjoyment.

The house has new electrics and central heating throughout with solar heating for hot water.

The house also contains a second smaller apartment mainly for our own use

We produce our own high quality olive oil and provide our guests with a bottle as well as complimentary wines from the local region.

We have recently added an en suite shower room to a ground floor double bedroom

Rome!: For something different you can make a day trip to Rome which is only 200kms (2 hours) drive away by easily accessible motorways. It is a great drive through the amazingly scenic Appenine mountain range or if you prefer you can travel by train from Pescara.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"This fabulous home was a joy to stay in and the views were spectacular !"



Casa Collina is a wonderful home located in a peaceful setting with incredible views of the mountains and surrounding hill sides, We stayed for a month and enjoyed every minute of it ! The home is immaculate and is equipped with everything that any one might need to make their stay comfortable. The home is well cared for and everything works so well, the bathroom has all new fixtures and a great shower . The bedrooms are comfortable and cozy. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that you might want to cook great Italian meals ! Dinning on the patio with breathtaking views of the mountains makes for an unforgettable experience. The back yard is filled with beautiful olive trees and you can enjoy to just sit and relax the day away. We had a wonderful time there and will return again !! Thanks so much again for all of your hospitality !!

A 'dream holiday' location in rural Abruzzo which gives you easy access to explore and experience a huge variety of holiday activities. There is something for everyone! The Adriatic coast is a short drive away. There are many miles of varied coastline to explore and lots of beautiful safe beaches. The vibrant city of Pescara has sandy beaches, marina, harbour, modern shops and many bars, restaurants and busy night life.

You can explore ancient culture in the city of Chieti. The administrative centre of the area with imposing churches, museums and theatre between a coffee or a meal. There are lots of fascinating historical hilltop villages to discover whilst absorbing the amazing scenery and mountain views. You can often stand seeing the mountains and the sea!

If you enjoy unspoilt nature and outdoor activities the spectacular mountain ranges of the Maiella and Grand Sasso provide excellent hiking, walking and climbing in the huge National Parks. The winter snow is amazing and skiing is available for all ages and abilities at Passo Lanciano

Drive to the top of La Maielletta (2000m above sea level) and on a clear day you will experience amazing views across the countryside to the sea where you can see many miles of the coastline, as well as across to other mountains in the Maiella range. The Grand Sasso mountain range is also clearly visible.
