Montefino Apartment 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.

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 apartment 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

Ein schöner Ort zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Seit Jahren wollte ich einmal meine Eltern zu diesem geliebten Urlaubsziel begleiten. Endlich hat es geklappt und ich habe mich dort genauso wohl gefühlt wie sie. Der Kontakt zu Ester und Friedhelm ist sehr herzlich. Die Wohnungen sind liebevoll eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet.

Trotz der frühen Jahreszeit konnten wir mehrfach vormittags auf der Terasse vor dem Haus und nachmittags dahinter im Garten die Sonne genießen.

Die Nähe zum Meer und zu den Bergen bietet unterschiedlichste Ausflugsziele und viele schöne Fotomotive.

Wieder eine tolle Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir kommen seit einer Reihe von Jahren nach Fonte Pecorale. Auch diesmal war die Freude groß, Ester und Friedhelm wiederzusehen. Sie sind immer herzliche Gastgeber. Die Lage von Fonte Pecorale ist einmal schön. Am Morgen scheint die Sonne in die Küche/ den Wohnbereich der gut ausgestatteten Ferienwohnung bzw. auf die Terrasse, am Nachmittag kann man sie im Garten hinter dem Haus genießen. Diesmal waren auch unsere Enkelkinder (4/14) dabei. Sie haben sich ganz schnell mit den Hunden angefreundet und mit ihnen gespielt und getollt. Die Hunde sind so friedfertig, dass auch der jüngere Enkel vor den für ihn sehr großen Hunden keine Angst hatte.

Die Landschaft ist einfach herrlich, Campo-Imperatore ein Muss. Friedhelm hat immer Tipps für Ausflüge parat.

Wer Ruhe und Urlaub abseits des Massentourismus sucht, ist hier goldrichtig.

immer wieder eine Reise wert

  • 5 of 5

Zum dritten Mal waren wir zu Gast bei Ester und Friedhelm im Landhaus Casa Fonte Pecorale.

Wie immer waren unsere Gastgeber sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Die Landschaft ist jedesmal ein Erlebnis und die Ruhe ist sehr erhohlsam.

Das Grande Sasso Masiv, der Parco Nazionale della Mariella oder das Meer bei Pineto sind gut zu erreichen.

Auch gibt es viele kleine nette Orte zu besichtigen.

Unser Essen haben wir mit dem guten Fonte Pecorale-eigenem Olivenoel angereichert und des abends haben wir es uns mit einen oder auch zwei Gläschen Wein aus der Cantina gut gehen lassen. Wir werden bestimmt noch öfter versuchen in Casa Fonte Pecorale unseren Urlaub zu verbringen und möchten uns nochmal für die Gastfreundschaft bei Ester und Friedhelm bedanken.

Mehr als Urlaub ....

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind im Internet eher zufällig auf dieses kleine Paradies gestoßen und haben unsere 2 Wochen bei Friedhelm und Ester in vollen Zügen genossen.

Da wir mit einem knapp 2-jährigen Kind doch etwas gebunden waren, haben wir umso mehr diese kleine Oase genossen und in aller Ruhe die Umgebung und die Atmosphäre genossen, vom wunderbaren Sonnenaufgang morgens (den man mit einem kleinen Kind fast immer genießen kann ;-)) bis zu den fantastisch entspannten Abenden bei einem Glas Rotwein aus Friedhelms Bestand. Unser Sohn war völlig begeistert von Bomba, dem Hund, von dem er auch jetzt noch immer wieder spricht.

In der Umgebung ist für jeden etwas dabei, ob man nur einen Strandtag genießen möchte oder die wundervolle Bergwelt. Friedhelm hat hierfür immer tolle Tipps parat!!

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall sobald wie möglich wieder!!

Stefanie, Daniel und Ben
