|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
If you are looking for a modern, bespoke villa that has absolutely everything to offer on the outskirts of Pescara, then look no more. Maiella View is nestled amid a beautiful vineyard and olive grove in the hills overlooking Francavilla al Mare and the Adriatic coast.
The villages of Miglianico and Tollo are just 7 minutes by car, with the closest village, Giuliano Teatino, approximately 3 minutes drive from the villa. The closest beach is 10 minutes drive away, although there is a whole coast line with blue flag beaches to explore.
It is also a five minute drive to the only golf facilities in the region, Miglianico Golf Club.
Maiella View is situated between two local Agritourismo’s, approximately 500 metres each side, both serve delicious regional food from ingredients largely grown on their farms. Agritourismo La Contessa and Campo Letizia.
The Villa is built to enjoy the panoramic views of mountains, rolling hills and the sea. Maiella View's modern architectural features make it absolutely perfect for up to three couples. One of the main features of the house, is a double-height hallway, with cathedral windows framing spectacular views of the Gran Sasso mountain range. Bridging the hallway is a walkway connecting the two wings of the building. A large furnished terrace on the first floor is the perfect setting for an aperitif while enjoying the tranquil beauty of the area.
This luxury villa has three very comfortable master bedrooms and a large open plan living area. There are two master bedrooms upstairs, each with private terraces to allow that extra bit of uninterrupted time absorbing the breathtaking views surrounding you. Both upstairs bedrooms have individual en-suite bathrooms with spacious modern shower facilities. A third bedroom is located downstairs - adjacent to a full-size bathroom, which incorporates a bath and shower.
There is ample space at the property for relaxing outdoors and for dining and entertaining. The swimming pool is a few steps away from the main open plan living area. The large sliding glass double doors lead you outside, to the swimming pool steps, where you can sit and relax with a glass of incredibly gorgeous local wine from one of the many regional cantinas in the area.
The pool is completely surrounded by a large outdoor deck with plenty of space to lounge in the sun or enjoy a sunset behind the Gran Sasso mountain in the evenings. The pool is lit at night by soft ambient lighting, which instantly transforms the surrounding. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the evening sunset draws on a whole new concept.

Our stay at Maiella View was the completion of our 3 week vacation of moving every few days, so we were ready to settle down.
The house and the pool were stunning; the photos do not lie. Bedrooms are air conditioned and it was necessary because, not only does the house sit uncovered from shade, enormous glass windows, untypical of Italian houses, invite the penetrating heat into the house. Ceiling fans would go a long way to cooling off the main floor. At night, the upstairs deck was the perfect spot for star gazing with a night cap. Modern great kitchen complete with necessities, except ice maker.
The location is remote. No walking to town or the beach, but both are less than 15 minutes by car.
The managing couple couldn't have been nicer.
We have stayed twice at Maiella View and it has become one of our favourite places in Italy. The villa is set in between olive groves and has the most amazing views across the stunning countryside in one direction, looking over to the sea in another and to the Maiella mountains in the other. The sunsets and incredible. The villa itself is modern, luxurious and well kept. On arrival you are welcomed with a basket containing pasta, sauce and a bottle of wine or prosecco. Each bedroom is comfortable and has its own very nice en suite bathroom, again with the stunning views. There is a modern kitchen and TV with dvd and blu ray player. Outside is a lovely garden and the best part, the swimming pool which you can light at night with changing colours. The location is good for visiting Francavilla al mare, Pescara. The local town of Tollo has a great Vineyard called Cantina Tollo which is worth a visit and you can bring home some very nice wine for a very good price. Also make sure you visit Aguratissimo Campoletizia just 5 mins down the road, set in beautiful surroundings where you will get fantastic home cooked food that just keeps coming. As a previous reviewer has said, we would love to keep Maiella View a secret as it is such a gem but it's hard not to tell others about it!
We've stayed at Maeilla view for the last 2 years as we love the location and tranquility of the area, tucked between vineyards but really easily accessible to Francavilla and Pescara for beaches and restaurants. There's the most amazing agriturisimo within walking distance to the villa where they serve the food grown on the farm, one of the best meals we've ever had! The villa is spacious, contemporary and has a perfect pool to cool off in! The owners are really helpful and provided some very welcome provisions (including prosecco!) when our flight was delayed. Would highly recommend this hidden gem although would quite like to keep it a secret!
Maiella View was wonderful. The listing description was very accurate and the property was well maintained. The property manager was very prompt in meeting with us and very knowledgeable about the area. We were able to take day trips to many of the surrounding towns and enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. The owners were very responsible and professional in completing all business matters. I would recommend this property to my friends. We had a rental car with a GPS which was very helpful.
Abruzzo is one of the most sparsely populated regions on the Italian peninsula. A vacation in Abruzzo offers a taste of the unspoiled Italy.
This region, where the north of Italy meets the south, is one of the most beautiful in the country. Bordered by the Apennines to the west and fringed by the Adriatic on the east, it has some of Italy's most beautiful natural scenery. In the Gran Sasso it has the highest mountain in Italy. Stand atop the Gran Sasso and you have views of both the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenian (Mediterranean) Seas, across the entire width of Italy.
Within an easy drive of the Villa there are an abundance of restaurants and pizzerias at which to enjoy the regional cuisine. Meat dishes are a speciality in the hills and seafood in the coastal towns. We are happy to recommend some of our favourite eating establishments but we have found the food and wine to be excellent wherever we have eaten.
The closest beach is just a 10-minute drive away, with the beach resorts offering umbrellas, loungers, play-areas for kids and snack bars/restaurants. The centre of Pescara, with its designer and high street shops, is a 25-minute drive from the Villa. In the evenings, the beach cafes and the old town of Pescara Porto transform themselves into vibrant night spots.
‘Marina di Pescara’ is one of the largest on the Adriatic coast. The Marina contains cafés, restaurants and boutique shops. Boat charters are available to sail along the Abruzzo coastline, while a day trip will allow you to explore the beautiful islands of Isole Tremiti.
Abruzzo has 4 magnificent Natural Parks and 3 mountain massifs as good as the Alpines. Hiking and mountain bike enthusiasts have a network of marked paths available and horse-back excursions are available.
The Maiella mountain range, which is part of the world heritage of National Parks, has 22km of ski slopes and 12km of trails for Nordic skiing and is only a short drive from the Villa. At less than 2,000 metres, the slopes are famous for the abundant blanket of snow that lasts until late spring. While skiing, a glance toward the horizon will give you spectacular views of the coast and the Adriatic Sea. When it comes to après-ski, the choices are many: enchanting villages, small towns rich in art works, ancient traditions and folkloric events.
Getting there: There are flights from many European cities such as London, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Eindhoven directly to Pescara, from which it is a 20 minute drive to the villa. Alternatively, the villa is approximately 2 1/2 hours drive on the autostrada from Rome's airports.
