LOG HOUSE ON ORGANIC OLIVE GROVE, WITH OPTIONAL ITALIAN AND COOKING LESSONS

Loreto Aprutino Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms; sleeps up to 6; beautifully finished & fully furnished

The villa is built of Arctic pine using modern environmentally friendly building techniques. It is immersed in an organic olive grove. It has balconies at the front and back to enjoy the beautiful mountain (full Appennini range) and countryside views. Photovoltaic solar panels on the roof provide electricity and a burning stove keeps the ambient temperature up during the cooler months. The villa is virtually free from magnetic fields. Besides, you can opt for the fun Italian and hands-on 'Abruzzese' cooking sessions offered on-site. This will greatly enhance your holiday experience helping you interact and become familiar with the language and culinary richness of this region. Staying at the villa, you will have a relaxing and holiday with plenty of places to explore nearby. The grounds around the house can be explored and the back garden area there are table and chairs to eat alfresco. Hammocks hang in the trees around the house to take a siesta in the nature.

Relax and enjoy: Villa Fiorano will make an ideal base from where you can plan anything from a relaxing break on a sun-drenched beach to an exciting winter skiing holiday. Escape a stressful urban lifestyle, and unwind at any time of the year. Summer-time activities are abundant and popular. There are many village 'Sagre' (folk festivals) to be entertained and delighted by the rich cultural and historical heritage e.g. Festa Medievale in Penne with middle-ages costumes and jesting.

The house is on an organic olive grove that can be explored by guests, including picking fresh fruit from the trees surrounding the villa. The back garden area has hammocks, a table and chairs and an umbrella, to eat alfresco. To experience a typical abruzzese meal, barbecue for 'arrosticini' (local lamb kebabs) is provided.

Eating: The kitchen is fully equipped. You can eat in the house or in the garden, al fresco. However, for those who want to taste real Abruzzese cuisine, you have the opportunity to learn the art of making local specialities, including, of course, your own pasta. (See below for details).

Eating out - If you prefer to eat out, there is a very large selection of places in the area. On the opposite hill to the house (15 min walk) there's a family run restaurant (Il Casolare). There are also many 'agriturismo' to taste Abruzzese cuisine. You can find international cuisine in Pescara (including an Irish pub if you get desperate for a Guinness).

Cooking & Italian lessons: Cookery lessons. For the cookery lessons, Maria will be your personal Abruzzese cooking teacher, for a 'hands on' experience. Using seasonal, locally produced ingredients (including organic produce from the land around the house, hand picked by you) you are bound to have fun making regional specialities such as 'spaghetti alla chitarra', 'pizza con patate', 'frittata', etc. Fees to be negotiated depending on the number of sessions and the food requested.

Italian language lessons. The Italian language lessons are informal, friendly and tailored to your needs, tastes, language level, and schedule. Your teacher is a native speaker and she will negotiate all aspects of the course with you. Usually, beginners having lessons for 1 week will learn: greetings, basic exchanges, interacting at the bar and at the restaurant, shopping for food and for clothes. Lesson fees: assuming 5 people having 2 hour lessons for 5 days (10 hours in total): €50 each.

A true Italian experience!!!

We spent a few days at Villa Fiorano after visiting the hot and
overcrowded cities of Rome and Florence.
The cottage was an idyllic place to chill out and enjoy
nature. We also looooved the rustic, authentic
Italian cuisine of Maria, a true Italian Mamma!
The place was very clean and we were not disappointed in any way.
This is the place where we enjoyed Italy just as an Italian would!
We highly recommend it to everyone!

Beautiful wooden house in the olive groves

This is a great house to stay in - very quite & in the middle of olive groves. The whole house is made of wood, which is very homely. The description is correct, the place clean & in good condition, & great service from the owners. I would recommend it to my friends. The area's pretty quiet so there's not much in terms of attractions there, but that's the appeal.

Beautiful House in Tranquil Olive Grove

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
Beautiful house in picture perfect surroundings of the family olive grove. You will feel really rested here and I can vouch for the hammocks! The bedrooms are beautifully accessorised but without fuss. I would really recommend the jacuzzi bath too.

It's an opportunity to feel right in the middle of Italian culture and experience the 'real' Italy. Worth hiring a car and driving to nearby towns as they are very picturesque.

I had a wonderful stay and look forward to going back. Have recommended it to my friends.

A Week in Paradise

We enjoyed our week at "Villa Fiorano". It was a delight to have a home away from home where we could explore the towns and villages in Abruzzo. A rental car is a necessity due to the location. It was nice to be away from the touristy areas and to experience life as a local. What a beautiful house and the scenery - amazing! We felt well looked after and have no hesitation in recommending this vacation rental. Thanks Virna for the lovely memories!
