Ein wunderbarer Platz zwischen Meer und Bergen

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren im August für drei Wochen in Penne und es war wunderbar. Die Wohnung inmitten der Stadt war perfekt. Wir konnten unmittelbar am Leben der Menschen teilhaben. Die Wohnung selber bietet allen Komfort, den man sich für eine Ferienwohnung wünschen kann. Genügend Platz, die Ausstattung sehr gut ( z.B. einen Sodastreamer, der das lästige Wasserschleppen unnötig machte), eine Terasse zum Wohlfühlen (Schatten zum Frühstück und zum Abendessen) und vieles andere mehr. Der Eigentümer ist äußerst zuvorkommend, alles klappte hervorragend.
Penne selbst ist ein Städchen zum Verlieben, wir konnten beim Mittelalterfest und bei der "weißen Nacht" dabei sein. Konzerte und Theater ergänzten unser Kulturprogramm.Die Lage der Stadt ist ideal, das Meer ist nicht weit und der Nationalpark Gran Sasso e Monti della laga auch nicht. So ist es möglich an einem Tag auf dem höchten Gipfel der Abruzzen zu stehen (Corno grande 2912m), auf den südlichsten Gletscher Europas zu schauen und am nächsten Tag einen Tag am Meer zu verbringen. Geht es noch besser? Ich glaube nicht!

Authentic Italy, nice location, property & owner - part 1

We spent the first two weeks of August 2013 at Olav’s property rental in Penne. My wife, my daughter, 21 and my son, 17. We really enjoy holidaying in Italy having visited Garda, Verona, Venice, Rome, Tuscany and the Amalfi coast. This time we wanted to get beyond the tourist hotspots and find somewhere a little more hidden. We settled on flying in to Pescara on Ryan Air from Stansted and so found ourselves drawn to Penne and this property.

The property is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The owner provides all the information you will need to make the most of the property and your visit. We had just one problem when local electrical work caused an issue with the fusebox. One email to Olav and help arrived very promptly, a part was needed, this was fitted the next day. Great service.

Penne is charming and will keep you fit as exploring the hilly streets is a good workout, especially in August. There is a smattering of local bars and restaurants. The gelataria is good, nice café frappe. The small restaurant, La Grotte is really homely, the Signora is charming, rosticcini and pork were tender and tasty and the house Montepulciano d’Abruzzo recommended. There is a modern diner/take-away Pizzeria just outside one of the gates that is good too.

Night life is low key mainly focussed on the early evening Passagiata when people casually meet and chat in the Piazza and Piazetta. Just sit alfresco with a cool drink and watch the world go by. We were lucky enough to be in Penne for the medieval festival, which took place over a couple of nights and included people in costume marching, drum banging and flag waving. We also were there for ‘white night’ which featured a variety of rock bands in the squares with DJ’s and dancing all over the town until dawn. Great fun.

Another day was a religious holiday, watch out for these as everything closes so if you’re fridge is empty you may struggle to find anything to eat. There was a procession through the streets and some very nice choral singing. In fact there was often the sound of music in the streets, from within a cool church or drifting from an upstairs window, maybe a little classical piano or some traditional accordion playing.

continued in part two....

Beautiful apartment in the ancient town of Penne

  • 5 of 5
As it turned out we have found a gem in this ancient town of Penne. It was a perfect base camp for our excursions in the Abruzzo region but also a spacious residence for resting between the hikes. We enjoyed the apartment very much, a wonderful place, everything is harmonious, old Abruzzo style meets modernity, that´s what we really love. The equipment is enormous and allowed us to cook as much as we had fun. It was really a great experience to make our own pasta thanks to the existing noodle machine. The library is considerable and offered so many interesting books containing a lot of suggestions which helped to discover this wonderful pieceful place in Italy. Very much recommendable.

Wonderful Stay In Penne!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful stay!!!
The house, finely renovated, is provided with any kind of comfort: the domestic appliance are all completely in service; very extended kitchen stuff; blankets, bed sheets, and towels all clean; two bathrooms very comfortable (one dream bath); ideal fireplace and heating system.
We have find the house very clean, evidence of a perfect clean organization with very gentle miss Romina, which have turn on the heating before we arrive.
Penne is a very nice small village, typical of italian Middle Ages village; provided with all the necessary for a good stay.
We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve in Penne and I think that we will not easily forget it!
Finally, the courtesy and distinction of the owner is the setting of that wonderful holiday!

Property ID 843375 in Abruzzo Town house, Penne.

  • 5 of 5
The house 5 stars, was beautifully restored both internally and externally whilst maintaing a unique character throughout. It had a very clean and traditional feel, spacious and with a nice ambience, vaulted cielings, originality etc. The owners had made a great effort in providing you with everything that you could require throughout your stay. The kitchen was the highlight, large and with almost every utensil that you could require to work with. The location perfect for experiencing the Italian way of living and just a few mins walk away from the main piaza, The Security was good but Direct parking difficult however ample of small squares amongst the community. Penne has a nice laid back feel with a friendly community and made a nice base for exploring the wonderful coastline whilst providing you with a traditional way of life. I must also add how efficient and well organised the owner is with guidance and help prior to, during and after your warm stay.

Penne is beautifully located at the foot of the Gran Sasso, with the highest peaks of the Appennines, yet only 30 minutes by car from Pescara and other Adriatic beaches. Unlike many old hill towns, Penne remains vibrant with lots of restaurants, cafés, and shops of all kinds inside the medieval walls, as well a cathedral and numerous churches and museums. Big street market on Saturdays. Nice tracks around the Lago (lake) di Penne only 5 minutes outside town. Penne is older than Rome and was the capital of the Vestini people before becoming an important Roman town; later it was the capital of Abruzzo. Its rebellion in 1837 against the Bourbon rulers of Naples and Sicily was among the early sparks of Italy’s risorgimento and unification. Only 35 minutes from Pescara’s international airport, served by Ryanair direct flights from London, Barcelona, Brussels, Cagliari, Eindhoven, Frankfurt, Milan, Oslo/Torp, Paris and Verona; also direct flights from Dubrovnik, Prague, Split, and Toronto.

Golf: l Cerreto di Miglianico Pescara Golf & Country Club at Cda Cerreto, 58, Miglianico in Chieti province, around 40 minutes by car. This 18-hole course was designed by the American architect Ronald Kirby. Good location close to the sea, reportedly well suited for beginners as well experienced players.

Ski: Abruzzo features the biggest ski resorts in the Appennines with hundreds of kilometres of ski runs. The nearby Gran Sasso and Majella massifs form the rocky backbone of this region with clear alpine features, heavy snowfalls, and plenty of tourist resorts for both downhill and cross-country skiing. The closest to our house is Passolanciano, with 1 chair lift and 8 ski lifts serving a total of 16 slopes (1 black, 8 red and 7 blue) and two cross-country ski circuits. Bigger resorts somewhat further away, especially Roccaraso with the Aremogna-Pizzalto plateau, with a six-seater cableway with automatic hook-up, 8 chairlifts and 12 ski lifts.
