About Gaynor Evans

I live in Wales but love Italy. My husband and I bought the property and renovated it , trying to keep it as authentic as possible and feel we have done that. It primarily was going to be just for us but felt it was a place that others should know about and find because of its tranquillity and beauty... a hidden treasure.

Gaynor Evans purchased this house in 2006

Why Gaynor Evans chose Rapino

It is set in beautiful surroundings with access to the mountain and sea... but set itself nestled in the rolling hills of Abruzzo..

What makes this house unique

excellent for ski ing,great for people who love walking, chilling, eating..

Authentic Italy

  • 5 of 5
A very good location in an unspoilt and quiet area. Anyone wanting to refresh their spirt should head here between the magnificent mountains and the sea. Both are within easy reach.
The house has obviously been furnished by someone with a good eye and sense. This all adds to the pleasure of staying here. Any visitor should consider this as a base for visiting other more busy parts of Italy returning here to refresh. Good eating is at hand and the friendly residents will make your stay easy. The quiet airport of Pescara has obvious advantages over the busier airports around Rome. Rome is however not far away by autostrade, 1hr 35mins.

restful holiday home with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for those who want to escape from the bustle of Italian cities.Rapino is one of those classic Italian villages that exist away from the tourist trap and you can spend a day nodding to the locals and just exploring the narrow ,winding streets.It is also a superb base to explore neighbouring hill top towns,the beach or the snow to ski, depending on the time of year!
The house itself is well set up to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The owners provide thoughtful and helpful tips on where to go for food, scenic walks or days out to save you having to think too hard on your holiday! And Gianni your local contact will bend over backwards to be as helpful and welcoming as possible. The biggest selling point has to be the breath taking view on the veranda. You overlook the National Park and from the mists in the morning to the clear afternoons, you never tire of it. We took our 2 Mums aged 75 and we all had an excellent stay and are looking forward to returning soon. A perfect holiday destination.

A week in Rapino beats a year's supply of chianti!

This delightfully restored holiday property is absolutely brilliant. My wife and I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the rear verandah you can see an incredible panoramic view all the way from the Adriatic Sea through hill top villages to the snow capped mountains east of Rome. Rapino is a brilliant example of the unspoiled Italy - far from the tourist traps. A holiday here gives you the chance to meet with real Italians and enjoy great restaurants, friendly local shops and lively markets. Both the ski resorts and the beaches are within an hour's drive. Historic towns and quaint villages are set in countryside that is a joy to drive through. The description on this website is spot on. We can't wait to pay a return visit.

DES VACANCES INOUBLIABLES DANS LES ABRUZZES

  • 5 of 5
Trois semaines dans les Abruzzes en août 2014, entre montagnes de la Maiella et mer Adriatique.
Après une escapade de deux jours vers Cassino sur les traces d'un de nos grand-père et des troupes alliées de la seconde guerre mondiale, nous avons pu apprécier tous les reliefs de la région et en goûter toutes les saveurs.
Une fête de village chaque jour avec danse et spécialités culinaires. Tous les contrastes de l'Italie sont présents : figuiers, oliviers et chênes centenaires. Nous y avons vécu des vacances mémorables mais un de nos plus grands moments restera incontestablement le petit déjeuner face au lever du soleil sur cette terrasse magique !
Enfin merci au propriétaire de nous avoir permis de vivre ces moments dans cette maison où nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dès le premier jour.

Visiting Rapino is like stepping back in time. Nestling in the foothills of the Maiella mountains our home is just 30 minutes from the nearest ski resort of Lanciano and 30 minutes direct route to the warm waters of the Adriatic. Still relatively undiscovered you will be overwhelmed and charmed by its beauty and the hospitality of the local people.
