Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second time on the villa La Foschia d'Estate was even more brilliant than the first one.The first part of the day we have been spending on the coast and other part we spent by seeing interesting places around.

There is a small wine manufacturer on the neighbour hill. The owner was very hospitable. He has told us about wine production in his wineyards and shown. We have bought some bottles of a good local wine. On the local food Festival in ancient Atri, we have tasted local honey, olive oil and salamis. So we bought a lot of presents for us and our friends. One pleasant evening we have spent in the bar/restaurant in the village.

Each day we ate the tastiest figs from the four fig trees near the house.

It was pleasant to see a lot of butterfly and sunflowers on the hill side.

Many thanks for Tracey.

The villa is located in the heart of the beautiful Abruzzo countryside in a tiny hamlet near to the historic market town of Atri. There are spectacular views of the surrounding farmland to the mountains in the west to the sea in the east. There are 4 National parks in the Abruzzo, with extensive walking, cycling and birdwatching. The nearest beach is at Pineto about a half an hour drive from the house, where pine trees act as natural shade from the midday sun. The nearest ski lifts are at campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso, a small uncrowded resort used mostly by locals, where there is good intermediate and beginner slopes.. There are many wonderful medieval villages which cling to the tops of hills, and have remained largely unchanged over hundreds of years.
