We wanted somewhere not so well known. We had previously stayed in Tuscany and thought a change would be interesting. We had such a fabulous time at the villa, the photos don't really do it justice ! Its spotless, spacious and on par with any 4 star hotel we've stayed in. The weather was warm but not warm enough for the lovely private pool. We shall have to come back for that.
Villa Oligreta is situated in an undiscovered part of Italy 30 minutes from Pescara International Airport. The local beach and National Park of Majella are approx a 15 minute drive away. There is plenty of activities nearby, from pony trekking, to golfing, enough to keep the whole family occupied. Rome is easily accessible - an easy two hour drive makes it possible to experience the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, Vatican and other wonders of ancient Rome within a day.
Other Activities: Ramblers paradise!
