Overview

Teramo House Rental Photos and Description

Fonte Pecorale : the Pozzo home, the Nido home, and La Stalla home

Fonte Pecorale is a lovingly-restored hacienda fron the 19th century. It is far away from the hustle and bustle at the edge of the Gran Sasso National Park at an elevation of 450 metres. It is nestled in a rich landscape, between the sea and the mountains of the Gran Sasso Massif. One of the highlights of an Abruzzia holiday is certainly an excursion on the Campo Imperatore, a plateau at an altitude of 2,100 metres, on which the Gran Sasso (2,912 m) throws its shadow as the largest mountain of the Appenines. On the Campo Imperatore, visitors will find seldom-seen plant species like orchids and Carline thistles, depending on the time of year. In spring, the extensive meadows are saturated with colourful flowers. It's a true pleasure to throw some local delicacies on the grill, with two nearby butchers offering excellent specialty sausages and cheese, like the traditional Arrosticcini. Those who love the sea will also have their fill: the lovely Pineto beach is perfect for a dip. During the holidays, we offer larger families the option to rent both houses, Il Pozzo and Il Nido for the special price of €82/day, plus €50 for the final cleaning. Both houses are situated close to one another and both have a bathroom, 2 covered terraces, and the garden. In a radius of 2-8 km, there are a few traditional Trattoria and pizzerias. There is a small mini-mart in 2 km and a supermarket 6 km away. We're happy to provide more information on request. The man of the house speaks German. If you have a moment, see our website, under informazioni e prezzi. Abruzzia mountain-bike holiday! At the suggestion of our guests, we have created a few nice mountain bike tours leaving directly from Fonte Pecorale. For small tours to day trips, experience the age-old Abruzzia.

Details for Casa Fonte Pecorale - La Stalla Holiday Home 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5, 1 Bathroom

Since spring 2008 we offer the La Stalla holiday home. The name indicates that it used to be a horse stall. After a comprehensive reconstruction, a 60-m2, comfortable house has been developed. It is 40 m from the main house, and has a terrace, a small garden for enjoying the sun and the peace and quiet, and an antryway with a parking place. The middle of La Stalla comprises a large, pleasant kitchenette. The modern bathroom has a large shower and bidet. Both bedrooms are lovingly furnished with double beds and closets. La Stalla is somewhat higher than the large country house and offers a lovely view of the nearby mountains and towns. In the house, there is a TV with satellite service.

Why Carusi Family chose Teramo

For 10 years, we have been spending our summer vacations at Fonte Pecorale with Ester and Friedhelm. It is a different part of the earth, which really hooks you - in a positive way. Why? It's impossible to say with words. You simply have to experience it. What nicotine is to cigarettes, Ester and Friedhelm are to Fonte Pecorale, who have, through the years, become much more than good hosts to us. Both of them prepared a phenomenal welcome this year, with a visit from the mayor, press, photographers, and featuring prosecco, medals with names, bed sheets with words, German flags in a circle around the Crocetta S. Maria, half of the town as a welcoming committee, victor's laurels, all brought together single-handedly. The reason? The arrival of Harald and Dieter from Ebern to Montefino on racing bikes, with 9 stops. Grazie mille Ester è Firedhelm! Alla prossima!

What makes this house unique

We have had the privilege of staying in all three holiday homes. All are very nicely and lovingly furnished, and quite clean. You'll find towels and bed linen ready. A washing machine is available. Behind the house, there is a garden, where you can always help yourself to the harvest: tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, cabbage, cucumbers, and more. The holiday homes each have a terrace from which you can enjoy the sunrise in the morning. In the garden, there are recliners for sunbathing and lazing around. A major reason for us are the owners themselves. Ester and Friedhelm have welcomed us so sincerely right from the start, helped us with advice and assistance on-site, given us useful tips, and taken lovely hikes and excursions with us. You'll feel so good when you come here. For that, a huge thank you! In Abruzzia, time takes on another meaning. Going somewhere fast doesn't always work. Everything takes a while longer because of the roads. But little by little, we learn to enjoy it. It's an escape from hectic Germany. You're in the right place here at Fonte Pecorale if you want to truly relax or experience the original Italy with generous hosts. Andrea and Harald

Der Tipp für ganz besondere Ferien

  • 5 of 5

In 2015 haben wir Casa Fonte Pecorale zum ersten Mal besucht und waren einfach verzaubert. Damals wohnten wir in Il Pozzo haben die Morgen- und die Abendsonne auf den beiden Terrassen genossen, den Garten und den traumhaften Ausblick bewundert und festgestellt, dass diese Region so vielseitig ist, dass man einfach wieder kommen muss. So haben die wunderschöne Landschaft, die Bergdörfer, in denen die Zeit stehen geblieben zu sein scheint, das Klima und nicht zuletzt auch die Tomaten in Esters und Friedhelms Garten uns also dieses Jahr wieder hierher geführt - diesmal ins La Stalla, da unsere 15-jährige Tochter gerne ein eigenes Zimmer wollte.

Die im schönen mediteranen Landhausstil eingerichteten Wohnungen haben alles, was man zum Wohlfühlen braucht: bequeme Betten, eine sehr gut ausgestattete Küche und schöne und gepflegte Badezimmer.

Die Seele von Fonte Pecorale aber sind Ester und Friedhelm, denen man anmerkt mit wie viel Liebe und Einsatz hier alles entstanden ist.

Friedhelm, der wohl jeden Winkel der Abruzzen erkundet hat, hat einen unerschöpflichen Vorrat an Tipps für Wanderungen, Besichtigungstouren, Strandtage und alles was die abruzzische Küche so hergibt. Bewundernswert dann seine Toleranz, wenn man dann doch gelegentlich einfach nur im Gartenstuhl sitzen bleibt und den Wein genießt.

Ach ja - und dann gibt's ja noch Bomba, den bestimmt freundlichsten Hirtenhund der Abruzzen, der ebenfalls regelmäßig vorbeischaut und sich seine Streicheleinheiten abholt.

DANKE für zwei sehr schöne Urlaube und viele anregende Gespräche

idyllisches Häuschen und viele wertvolle Tipps

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie, 2 Kinder) waren zum ersten Mal in den Abruzzen und haben die zwei Wochen im Fonte Pecorale in vollen Zügen genossen. Das lag nicht zuletzt an unseren lieben Gastgebern, Friedhelm und Ester, die sich rührend um uns gekümmert und uns mit vielen wertvollen Tipps versorgt haben (Wanderungen, essen gehen, Strand, einkaufen - einfach alles). Am liebsten hätte Friedhelm selbst noch das Wetter zum Positiven beeinflusst - wer weiß, vielleicht hat er ja sogar das geschafft... Für die Kinder waren Bomba (der Hund) und Papageno (das Pferd) natürlich besondere Attraktionen. Lediglich die aufgrund der schlechten Straßenverhältnisse etwas aufwändigen Autofahrten haben uns manchmal etwas gestresst, aber trotzdem war es ein Urlaub, an den wir noch lange wehmütig zurückdenken werden. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war perfekt, und die Herzlichkeit der Gastgeber ist sowieso unbezahlbar.

Frei nach Goethe: "Die Gäste, die ich rief........

  • 5 of 5

So wie fast Allen hier geht es auch uns: Wer einmal die Fonte Pecorale, die Abruzzen und Ester und Friedhelm kennengelernt hat, der wird immer wieder kommen. Das hat allerbeste Gründe: die Fonte Pecorale ist der ideale Ort, um in besonderer Landschaft und reizvoller Atmosphäre den Alltag weit hinter sich zu lassen; die Abruzzen bieten alles, was man sich nur wünschen und vorstellen kann (Kunst, Kultur, Küche, Meer, Berge, Historisches, besondere Landschaftsbilder - ich habe bestimmt Einiges vergessen) und hinzu kommt - sozusagen als Sahnehäubchen obendrauf - die

Liebenswürdigkeit und Gastfreundschaft von Ester und Friedhelm.

Einen gehörigen Nachteil allerdings hat dieses "Vorteilspaket" dann aber doch: Man erhält (abgesehen von Ausflügen mit Friedhelm nach Rom, Subiaco, Neapel oder Apulien) kaum mehr Gelegenheit, auch andere Teile von Bella Italia kennenzulernen; mittlerweile zieht es uns bereits seit 10 Jahren immer wieder zur Fonte Pecorale, in die Abruzzen und zu Ester und Pacelmo. Ich "fürchte": Da wird sich nichts mehr dran ändern !

P.S.:

An einem der vielen träumend im Garten der Fonte Pecorale verbrachten Tage kam es mir in den Sinn, den teutonischen "Friedhelm" sozusagen einzuitalianisieren (ich glaube: das Ergebnis gefällt unserem manchmal unnachahmlich liebenswürdig brummenden "Marito").

Frei nach Goethe: Die Gäste, die ich rief,........

  • 5 of 5

Es geht auch uns wie so vielen hier: Wer die Fonte Pecorale, die Abruzzen und vor allem Ester und Friedhelm einmal kennengelernt hat, der wird immer wiederkommen. Die Fonte Pecorale ist ein idealer Ort um in ungewöhnlicher, teils bizarrer Landschaft so richtig auszuspannen, die Abruzzen bieten so unglaublich viel (Kunst, Kultur, Berge, Altertümliches, Meer, Küche - da ist garantiert für Jeden etwas dabei) und Ester und Friedhelm mit ihrer Liebenswürdigkeit sind dann das "Sahnehäubchen" obendrauf.

Einen gehörigen Nachteil hat ein Aufenthalt auf der Fonte Pecorale allerdings: Man verpasst mehr oder weniger die Gelegenheit, auch andere Ecken von "Bella Italia" kennenzulernen (ausgenommen auch bereits mit Pacelmo unternommene Ausflüge nach Rom, Neapel oder Apulien), weil es einen eben immer wieder dahin zieht.

P.S.: In einer der vielen schönen Stunde, in denen ich träumend im gepflegten Garten der Fonte Pecorale lag, kam es mir in den Sinn, "Friedhelm" zu italianisieren (ich glaube: er mag das Ergebnis).

Montefino can be reached using the A14 motorway (Bologna-Bari), taking the Atri/Pineto exit. If you are coming from the airport, take the A14 motorway (Bari-Bologna) and the Atri/Pineto exit. For more information, see our homepage!

Within 60 km, there are several medieval mountain towns to discover. They offer all kinds of surprises: Atri inspired visitors with its cathedral, Penne has an ancient town centre from the 11th century, and Rocca Calascio has a castle just a stone's throw from the town. The San Pellegrino Chapel, which dates back to the 7th century, is picturesque. All of these towns and cities offer a diverse array of bars, where you can enjoy a cappuccino.
