About Darren and Jemma Sait

We first started visiting this area of Abruzzo in 2004 and immediately fell in love with all that it has to offer - the food, the wine, the family friendly beaches, the restaurants, the old towns with cobbled streets and cafes but above all the friendly atmosphere.

Darren and Jemma Sait purchased this villa in 2007

Why Darren and Jemma Sait chose Teramo

Our dream of owning a house here soon became a serious venture and after much research we bought this house in 2007. It offered all that we were looking for in a peaceful location but easy access to all the things we enjoy.

We spent three years renovating and extending the property from a barely habitable farmhouse into a bright and spacious house with great facilities, a pool and garden with beautiful views.

What makes this villa unique

We love spending our holidays here and making the most of the local delights. Feedback from our guests has been very positive and were impressed with the quality of the property.

Many of them spent evenings eating 'al fresco' on the portico with a glass of local wine, watching the sunset across the valley. Others preferred the early mornings - but they all enjoyed the pool and stunning views from the poolside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful villa in the most stunning location. It is rare to have your expectations surpassed when going on holiday, but this is what happened to us here. The accommodation is stylish, comfortable and spacious, with all the extra touches that go with it being a home rather than just a holiday rental. The views from the terraces and the pool are spectacular, and all in all it is the most relaxing, beautiful and peaceful environment you can imagine. We honestly didn't want to leave!

Amazing views from this spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing aspect of this large villa is its stunning view which we never tired of during our two-week stay. Enjoying a peaceful location, the property makes the most of these views with two big terraces - one for dining and the other top terrace opens out from three of the bedrooms for an incredible vista complete with relaxing furniture and umbrellas. Great pool - my 11-year-old loved the fact is was the same depth across, (good for pool games), really well equipped kitchen, wonderful walk-in showers and a huge amount of space all round, all newly furnished. Also noticed there were plenty of useful items if you are traveling with very young children. Nearby Atri is quite breathtaking, so unspoiled and the buildings are fascinating. Eating out is extremely good value and quality with lovely staff. Try the restaurants recommended - it's worth it! Water parks are an hour's drive, but offer a great day out for kids (cabaret, wave machines etc) and the designer shopping outlet just 20 mins from the villa is definitely worth a visit. We borrowed the empty bottles provided and filled up at the vineyard just down the road - incredible wine for just 1.50 euro a litre! Darren and Jemma very helpful and house manager Tracey attentive and happy to answer any questions throughout our stay. A very comprehensive and thoughtful villa pack is provided with maps and even photocopies of various info sheets to enable guests to take away. It was extremely hot during our July stay (40 degrees!) but the fans in all rooms were welcome. We would certainly recommend this villa and consider making a return visit. Amanda, John and Olivia

Fantastic villa and great views

  • 5 of 5

So far, we have visited a lot of places in different countries in Europe. We would always aim to see the most popular tourist attractions, mingle with the local people and enjoy typical dishes and food. What we have realized during all these trips, however, is that the real beauty of travelling is to discover unique places and enjoy the hidden gems a country/town could offer. One of these places, which we discovered this year, was this beautiful Italian region Abbruzzo and the town of Atri in particular. And if you want to really get the best out of a visit there, I would highly recommend this villa. The location is superb - situated on a hill overlooking the whole valley, you can enjoy the lovely sunrises and sunsets from one of the terraces which offer different experience. In addition, you could simply pop down to the pool and relax comfortably in the peace and quiet of the whole place.

I personally admired the beauty of the olive trees which you could see from the villa and to make things even more pleasant, the lovely homeowners would even provide you with their home-made olive oil to enjoy during your visit. Not to mention the proximity of the villa to a small vineyard where you could get another taste of the region and also to the beach, where you could enjoy different attractions and bars in the summer.

This was definitely one of the best places we have visited and the spacious modern villa was fantastic (not to mention how clean and very well maintained everything was, which for me is always very important for the overall experience). We will be visiting again – hopefully very soon ;).

Fantastic Villa - Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

We spent one of the most relaxing 2 weeks of our lives at this beautiful villa at the beginning of September. The location is so peaceful and just a short drive into Atri for supplies. The villa is spacious and well equipped. This isn’t just a basic holiday rental accommodation, this feels like a home where everything has been thought of. In fact we used to say that if you think something’s missing you aren’t looking in the right place!

The views are absolutely stunning and the website just doesn’t do it justice. There is no building to block your view and no clever photography – what you see on the website is the view you will see on arrival. We spent many an afternoon / evening on the terrace just watching the changing landscape and the beautiful clear skies with a glass of the local vino.

To anyone who is looking on this site, we would have no hesitation in recommending the villa. In a word – perfecto!

Stunning Views & Large Rooms!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is amazing! The views are stunning, the rooms are large and the owners have thought of everything! Our favorite part of the house (apart from the view) was the covered patio off the kitchen & family room. The description of this house was not accurate because it was BETTER than described!! It was clean and the local contact was very responsive. The kitchen has everything you need and everything you didn't know you needed. I would highly recommend this to a friend and if we ever return to Italy, we'll plan to stay here for 2 weeks instead of 1. Also, the owners are very friendly and super helpful.

An amazing holiday villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Your villa is lovely and we will definitely visit again. In such a peaceful setting with breathtaking views from the balcony and the pool, yet just a short drive from magnificent beaches and traditional Abruzzo villages. We could not want for a better holiday home in a better location.

Fantastic Villa overlooking a picturesque valley

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults and one child and we had a fantastic time, the villa was extremely spacious all bedrooms of an amazing size 3 of which opened out onto an amazing veranda which then looked down onto an amazing pool and with views to die for (we spent many a night sat on the comfy sofas on the veranda drinking rose from the local lady down the road!) What a way to end a day sat around your own pool. We werent overlooked by anyone nor heard anyone a very peaceful location, however if you wanted a bit of local italian interaction Atri was only a 5-10min drive away which served all our means and had some lovely coffee shops where we could watch the world go by (some v good restaurants too). Darren and Jemma couldnt do enough for us prior to us arriving. The villa has been finished to an extremely high standard and most of all v comfortable beds. Not once did we feel that we were under each others feet at the villa it was that spacious. We are definitely returning in 2013! Thanks again Darren and Jemma. Anita Emery

Sleeps 8 + 2 cots. 4 bedroom. Fabulous villa situated the near the historic town of Atri. This spacious four bedroom villa has been recently renovated and furnished to a high standard whilst retaining a traditional Italian feel. The villa is ideally located with beautiful views and offers something to suit all tastes and a 10m x 5m private pool. It is within a 10 minute scenic drive of traditional hilltop towns, the beach, nature reserves, sporting facilities and more.

The Abruzzo region is rich in culture and full of historical villages, towns and places to explore but it also has something to suit everyone from sightseeing, nature walks and wildlife spotting to shopping, dining and dancing, to sports or relaxation and well-being.

The local town of Atri is beautiful with cobbled streets, piazzas, an historical cathedral, theatre, cafes, restaurants, a park, and many unique shops. There are also caves, rock formations and nature reserves for the adventurers.

There are many activities on offer and within easy reach of the villa. The Pescara Golf and Country club, two waterparks, watersports and bicycle rental at beach locations, hiking, tree-top climbing, whitewater rafting and mountain biking trail in the National Parks and quad biking excursions in the hills.

In addition, the Calanchi rock formations and nature reserve provide interesting days out for budding ‘twitchers’.

There are an abundance of restaurants in Abruzzo, ranging from seafood specialties on the coast to more rustic and regional specialties in the smaller towns and villages. Many will also cater for special dietary requirements such as gluten free meals.

There are many local markets selling both local produce and craftware as well as two shopping malls and Italy’s first shopping outlet village approximately 15 mins drive from the villa. There are vineyard shops nearby where you can buy their locally produced wine.

The city of Pescara offers lively shopping with both high street and designer shops – shops close for the afternoons between 1pm and 4pm but most then stay open until 8pm.

More information about local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and local activities and places of interest is provided in the house.
