Overview

About the property

Two Bedroom stone home in a charming Italian town (with air conditioning!)

Two large bedrooms, a kitchen with fireplace, a rooftop terrace overlooking the valley and your own grape vines shading the front door. It's our little dream home, and we would love to share it with you.

Perché Palata? That's the question we are asked all the time. It is peaceful, in the middle of low rolling hills that provide Italy (and the world!) with the best pasta and olive oil around. It's also in the center of a whole host of wonderful, off-the-beaten-path sites that even most Italians are not aware of. It's the place that tourists don't know about. Let's keep it our little secret!

We have a lovely two-bedroom home near the largest piazza in this town of 2,000. The one large bath has just been remodeled, the kitchen has been updated, but we have tried to keep the character of a small Italian family home. The living room features a couch and comfortable chair (yes, we have stayed in those places with rock-hard furniture!) a television with digital Italian stations. Want to watch something off the internet? Feel free to log onto our WiFi with a DSL connection to the world. Skype calls, streaming video are no problem. One bedroom is on the main floor, with a queen-sized bed, desk and large wardrobe. The upper bedroom has a queen-sized bed and large wardrobe with a balcony which provides amazing light and cool mountain breezes. And for those days when the breezes are not enough, there is air conditioning to give relief from the heat of summer.

If you want to really enjoy the area, having a car is recommended. If you are adventurous, feel free to park in front of the house. It's a tight fit but fun when you accomplish it! For the less adventurous, we are 20 steps from Piazza San Rocco with easy parking. Driving in Italy is simple, car rental at the airports is simple, the hard part is that there are 20+ directional signs at intersections!

Where would you want to go? How about amazing beaches at Termoli or Campomarino? (both less than 30 minutes). Take the ferry out to the Tremiti islands (45 minutes by sea from Termoli), visit the castle and ancient churches of Campobasso (high in the mountains, 45 minute drive) or the Roman ruins of Larino (15 minute drive). Visit the Croatian village of Acquaviva (5 minutes) or Albanian culture in Montecilfone (10 minutes). Every little spot is amazing!

How do you get to middle of nowhere, and everything? Palata is about a three hour drive from the Rome airport (assuming traffic in Rome is moving. Rush hour will take longer.) and 90 minutes from the airport in Pescara. Almost all of that is on the Autostrade and the views of the mountains and seas are awesome! These are toll roads, but you can use a credit card (with chip!) to pay if you don't have Euro yet. Pescara (PSR) airport is a stop for Ryanair, so cheap flights into and out of Paris, Milan, Barcelona, London and Frankfurt are possible!

Hungry? One of our favorite restaurants in the world is Vecchio Frantoio and is just 100 meters from the front door. A short walk to the edge of town brings you to Altrochè, with a more modern twist on Italian classic food. Bar Frantano serves amazing coffee and hand-made pastries just around the corner on San Rocco. Want to cook? Our full kitchen is prepared with all the equipment you will need. There are two vegetable shops, a mini-market/deli, two bakeries, and a butcher shop all on our regular walking route. If you want to go down to the lower part of town is Bar Oasis, owned by a family that ran a pizzeria in Maryland for ten years, the hardware store, and a couple of more pizzerias. We have a full listing of who to talk to, and what business hours are in the home!

Englese? There are several people in town to talk with and help you. Many of the people in Palata have lived and worked in Germany and France, so if your lingua is Duesch or Francais, you will have no problems. The people of Palata are amazing and will want to talk your ear off!

Cleaning fee is for check-in and check-out only. No in-stay cleaning is included, but can be arranged if needed. Renter is responsible for their own housekeeping. Cleaning supplies and laundry supplies are available.

(Versione Italiano)

Due ampie camere da letto, una cucina con camino, bagno incantevole e le vostre vite ombreggiando la porta d'ingresso. E 'la nostra piccola casa dei sogni, e ci piacerebbe condividere con voi.

Perché Palata? Questa è la domanda che ci viene chiesto tutto il tempo. E 'tranquillo, nel mezzo di basse colline ondulate che garantiscono l'Italia (e nel mondo!), Con la migliore pasta e olio d'oliva in giro. E 'anche al centro di una serie di meravigliosi, siti che anche la maggior parte degli italiani non sono a conoscenza di off-the-percorso-picchiato. E 'il luogo che i turisti non conoscono. Teniamolo nostro piccolo segreto!

Abbiamo una bella casa a due camere da letto, vicino alla più grande piazza in questa città di 2.000. L'unico grande vasca è stato appena ristrutturato, la cucina è stato aggiornato, ma abbiamo cercato di mantenere il carattere di una piccola casa di famiglia italiana. Il soggiorno dispone di un divano e una sedia comoda (sì, siamo stati in quei luoghi con mobili duro!) Di un televisore con stazioni digitali italiani. Vuoi guardare qualcosa da internet? Sentitevi liberi di accedere al nostro WiFi con una connessione DSL al mondo. Skype, video in streaming non sono un problema. Una camera da letto si trova al piano principale, con un letto matrimoniale, scrivania e grande armadio. La camera da letto superiore ha un letto matrimoniale e grande armadio con un balcone che fornisce la luce incredibile e brezza fresca di montagna.

Se si vuole godere veramente l'area, avendo una macchina è consigliato. Se siete avventurosi, non esitate a parcheggiare davanti alla casa. Si tratta di una misura stretta ma divertente quando compite it! Per i meno avventurosi, ci sono 20 passi da Piazza San Rocco, con facilità di parcheggio. Guidare in Italia è semplice, noleggio auto presso gli aeroporti è semplice, che ci sono 200 cartelli direzionali agli incroci è la parte più difficile!

Dove vorresti andare? Come su splendide spiagge a Termoli o Campomarino? (entrambi a meno di 30 minuti). Prendere il traghetto per le isole Tremiti (45 minuti via mare da Termoli), visitare il castello e le antiche chiese di Campobasso (alta montagna, 45 minuti) o le rovine romane di Larino (15 minuti). Visita del villaggio croato di Acquaviva (5 minuti) o cultura albanese a Montecilfone (10 minuti). Ogni piccolo posto è incredibile!

Come si arriva a mezzo del nulla, e tutto? Palata è a circa tre ore di macchina dall'aeroporto di Roma (traffico assumendo in Roma si muove. Ora di punta ci vorrà più tempo.) E 90 minuti dall'aeroporto di Pescara. Quasi tutto ciò è in Autostrade e la vista delle montagne e mari sono incredibili! Si tratta di strade a pedaggio, ma è possibile utilizzare una carta di credito (con chip!) Di pagare se non si dispone ancora di Euro. Pescara (PSR) aeroporto è una fermata per Ryanair, voli così a buon mercato dentro e fuori di Parigi, Milano, Barcellona, ​​Londra e Francoforte sono possibili!

Hungry? Uno dei nostri ristoranti preferiti nel mondo è Vecchio Frantoio e si trova a soli 100 metri dalla porta di casa. Bar Frantano serve caffè incredibile e dolci fatti a mano proprio dietro l'angolo di San Rocco, una gelateria è in fondo alla strada principale nei pressi del parco pittoresco. E 'un ottimo posto per godersi il gelato e guardare giocare i bambini. Vuoi cucinare? La nostra cucina è preparata con tutte le attrezzature avrete bisogno. Ci sono due negozi di verdure, un mini-market / gastronomia, due panetterie, e un negozio di macelleria tutti sul nostro percorso normale camminata. Se si vuole andare verso la parte bassa della città è Bar Oasis, di proprietà di una famiglia che ha una pizzeria in Maryland per dieci anni, il negozio di ferramenta, e un altro paio di pizzerie. Abbiamo un elenco completo di chi parlare, e quali sono le loro ore sono in casa!

About Dan Perryman

We both have the freedom to work from our client locations or from "home" anywhere in the world. If we have internet access, we are at work.

Dan Perryman purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Dan Perryman chose Palata

When we decided to have a second home to live and work out of, Italy was our first choice. But not the touristy, noisy, busy Italy. We get enough of that in our main home. We sought out the romantic, peaceful, quiet life. Molise is a wonderful province with lots of agriculture and very little industry, and Palata was in just the right location to give us convenience to sights and shopping, but small enough to be the "Mayberry RFD" of Italy.

What makes this townhome unique

Town houses in Italy and cobbled together over the years. As families grow and expand they buy rooms or floors from their neighbors, knock out a door and move in. That charm, the two-foot thick stone walls, the grape vines over the door, the old Chiesa San Rocco right around the corner, the valley view from the

MOLTO BENE!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. So happy to have found this spot. This is TRUE Italia! Especially loved the rooftop deck. The house had everything we needed! The people were patient and helpful. An absolute joy to drive throughout the country-side and to the Adriatic Sea. Beyond grateful to find some family nearby as well. Ciao, Palata........we will return!!

Perfect Stay in this Molise hill town

  • 5 of 5

What a find is this townhouse and we fell in love with Palata and the surrounding countryside. Lots of amenities, room to relax and the view from the rooftop terrace is breathtaking. We enjoyed local foods, whether preparing in our own kitchen or at one of the lovely local restaurants. But most of all we enjoyed meeting and getting to know some of the wonderful folks of Palata. Looking for a peaceful time away from the tourist spots, but still within 1/2 hours drive of beach and attractions and wanting to truly experience the essence of Italy, look no further. We highly recommend this lovely townhouse!

Italy's best kept secret!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time in Palata! This house was fantastic. It is located right near the center of town and is walking distance to the bar, a restaurant, and food stores. The property is clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. Palata is an adorable little town that truly gives an authentic Italian experience. There are wineries and historical sites close by and the beach is just 35 minutes away! The owners are wonderful and had great recommendations for things to do. If you are looking for a great way to see what Italy is really like without all the tourists this is the perfect place! We can't wait to go back!!

Ci siano trovati bene. La casa ha rispecchiano le aspettative.

  • 4 of 5

paese carino arroccato sulle colline molisane,rurale selvaggio e incontaminato, sembra che il tempo li si sia fermato. ma allo stesso tempo trovi ogni servizio e in pochi km sei al mare;sulla splendida costa adriatica fatta di spiagge libere e lidi balneari attrezzati. termoli il fiore all occhiello della costa con un bellissimo lungomare, il castello svevo, e i fuochi del 15 agosto che chiudono il cerchio di una vacanza perfetta. ogni sera sagre diverse in ogni paese (c'è proprio l imbarazzo della scelta) bisognerebbe avere un calendario che segna tutti gli eventi ma a volte riesce difficile scegliere.😆? Palata ě stata una grande scoperta, a 520m di altezza nel cuore della valle del biferno; bar,minimarket,farmacia,banca,panificio,pasticceria, c'è tutto! un piacevole accordo tra natura e insediamenti umani. assolato tipico dei paesi del Sud e di notte fresco ventilato. si dorme bene! vicoli stretti e case rurali nella parte alta vicino alla chiesa, molto caratteristico; mentre nella parte bassa ci sono abitazioni di nuova costruzione. da menzionare la sagra di san rocco del 16 agosto con spettacoli processioni e fuochi a mezzanotte, x Buona gioia di bambini e adulti. viva palata! venite non come turisti ma come ospiti! scoprite mano a mano le bellezze del posto e soprattutto rispettatele. manteniamo questo posto incontaminato il più possibile. sarà il nostro piccolo angolo di paradiso. ciao dal kris

Vacances reposantes !

  • 5 of 5

Maison dans un village Italien, charmante aux commodités dès plus attrayantes. Un confort irréprochable, qui nous à permis de nous reposer en profitants des charmes de la campagne Italienne. La prestation était conforme à nos attentes. Il a été facile de nous ravitailler au sein du village et de nous y restaurer ! En plus la maison possède une terrasse ou siroter un apéro avec un paysage magnifique est enchanteur !!!!
