About the property

Casa Fonte Pecorale house

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 Province of 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

immer wieder gerne

  • 5 of 5

Seit mittlerweile 12 Jahren verbringen wir unsere Urlaube in der Casa Fonte Pecorale. Es ist wie "nach Hause kommen", jedes Mal schön und vertraut. Friedhelm und Ester, unsere Gastgeber, sind uns mit den Jahren sehr ans Herz gewachsen. Und so beginnt jeder Urlaub mit einer herzlichen Begrüßung und langen Gesprächen bei einem Glas Wein. Man muss sich ja schließlich erzählen, was so passiert ist in dem Jahr seit dem letzten Aufenthalt. Wir genießen die Abwechslung der Urlaube in den Abruzzen. So entscheiden wir je nach Wetterlage was wir unternehmen wollen. Mal geht es ans Meer, mal in die Berge. Oder man verbringt einfach einen Tag im schönen Garten hinter dem Haus oder auf der Terrasse der schönen Ferienwohnung. Auch die kleinen Bergdörfer oder Städchen in der Umgebung haben es uns angetan. Einfach mal einen Kaffee in einer der zahlreichen Bars trinken oder irgendwo zum Mittagessen anhalten. Es ist alles herrlich entschleunigt in den Abruzzen und noch sehr ursprünglich. Entschleunigt deswegen, weil man eben etwas änger braucht um von A nach B zu kommen. Die Straßen winden sich in zahlreichen Kurven hinauf und wieder hinunter. Für uns macht es einen totalen Reiz aus, diese wunderbare Landschaft so zu erkunden und eben mal nicht im Eiltempo irgendwohin zu fahren.

Manchmal denken wir: eigentlich können wir doch einmal woanders Urlaub machen.... Und dann kommen wir doch wieder hierher. Es ist einfach schön in den Abruzzen und speziell bei Friedhelm und Ester in der "Casa Fonte Pecorale". P.L.

Geheimtipp in den Abruzzen

  • 5 of 5

Land oder Meer – hier geht beides von einem sehr freundlichen und gepflegten

Quartier aus in der Nähe von Montefino, einem Ort hoch auf einem der vielen Abruzzenhügel. Zum ersten Mal genossen wir die Gastfreundschaft von Friedhelm und Ester, die hier drei liebevoll ausgestattete Ferienwohnungen mit herrlichem Garten und Ambiente anbieten. Ein erster Wein aus der Cantina nebenan und Olivenöl aus eigenem Anbau standen zur Begrüßung bereit. Tomaten, Gurken, Melone und Feigen durften wir frisch aus dem Garten genießen. Die Luft ist herrlich und das Fleckchen eignet sich wunderbar zum Relaxen. Bei Unternehmungen half Friedhelm uns stets gerne mit guten Tipps, egal ob es in die Berge ging (Gran Sasso oder Maiella – beides herrliche Gebiete) oder ans Meer mit dem Pinienstrand von Pineto oder zur Costa dei Trabocchi mit ihren zum Fischfang errichteten Pfahlbauten. Auch kleine Fototouren über die Hügel machten uns Freude. Knorrige Olivenbäume, Calanchi (typische Auswaschungen an Hügelhängen), Felder und kleine Orte bieten schöne Fotomotive. Vom Quartier aus kann man bis Atri und an ganz klaren Tagen sogar bis zum Meer schauen. Es hat uns bei Ester und Friedhelm so gut gefallen, dass wir sicher wiederkommen werden!

Die Lage: ruhig gelegen mit Blick auf die Berge und das Meer.

Wohnung: sauber, sehr gut eingerichtet, mit Liebe zum Detail

Die Landschaft: Grandios. Für Naturliebhaber ein einziger Genuss

Die Gastgeber: Einzigartig!

Fazit: Wer Ruhe sucht, Natur liebt und das ursprüngliche Italien sucht, ist bei Ester und Friedhelm goldrichtig aufgehoben.

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.
