Space 1,506 sq. ft.

About the property

This self-catering cottage lies in a secluded spot in the Gran Sasso-Laga National Park, a protected area of remarkable natural beauty. The surrounding mountains and valleys are covered with forests and green meadows and crossed by many footpaths and streams. The villa is an ideal base to go hiking, horse-riding, mountain-biking, or simply to enjoy peace and tranquillity immersed in the nature. Situated 800 m. above sea level, with thick stone walls, the house is never too hot even in the middle of the summer, hence no need for air conditioning.

Both the fully-equipped kitchen/dining room and the living room have an open fireplace and beamed wooden ceiling. The veranda, also with wooden cover, offers a nice mountain view and is the perfect place for al fresco dining. The property comprises a fenced private garden with parking space for two cars within the fence. The garden has fruit trees, garden chairs/table and a hammock for total relaxation. Table tennis, board games (in Italian and English), and the Playstation are available to guests for free; two mountain bikes are available upon request for a small fee.

una bella casa di montagna

  • 4 of 5

La proprietà del sig. Fabio è una vera casa di montagna, con due caminetti meravigliosi, gli scuri in legno alle finestre, immersa in un ambiente in cui si respira aria fresca e pulita e di notte si ammira un cielo cristallino. Se sceglierete questo posto, intorno a voi avrete pochissime altre abitazioni ed il rumore che sentirete maggiormente sarà quello del vento che scuote le fronde degli alberi. Il paesaggio intorno è bello e riposante.

Passando a dettagli più tecnici, la villetta è spaziosa, pulita e abbastanza accessoriata per essere una casa di montagna. Noi (in 6) abbiamo soggiornato per Capodanno e con la stufa a pellet e/o i camini accesi siamo stati molto bene, l'acqua calda c'era per tutti e la cucina era sufficientemente accessoriata. L'area intorno alla casa era veramente carina e passeggiare era un piacere, come anche stare in veranda a giocare a ping pong. La strada, a tratti sterrata a tratti asfaltata, che collega la casa alla statale dove c'è anche un piccolo bar (ca. 3km) è percorribile con normali automobili (noi avevamo una yaris e una ibiza) basta fare attenzione in caso di fango e/o ghiaccio in inverno, per il resto non presenta nessuna difficoltà.

Abitazione buona, strada disastrosa tutta sterrata e piena di buche

  • 3 of 5

Abitazione buona, strada per raggiungerla disastrosa, sterrata e piena di buche, serve avere un suv o auto molto alte. Con auto normali velocità massima 20 chilometri orari per non rovinare le auto. Nelle descrizioni questo particolare non viene menzionato. Proprietario cordiale e disponibile

Owner's Response: Grazie per la recensione. Come indicato nell'annuncio (che evidentemente non aveva letto attentamente), la strada che conduce alla casa è in parte non asfaltata (per circa 3 Km). Il tratto di strada dissestata, su cui vige il limite di velocità di 30 Km/h, è percorribile con qualsiasi tipo di automobile; ovviamente non è consigliabile l'uso di auto sportive o molto basse.

Bellissima Villetta con tutto

Il necessario comodissima e spaziosa, la veranda è meravigliosa per non parlare del bellissimo tavolo da Ping pong.

Il posto è magnifico per chi come noi cercava pace e tranquillità e relax assoluto.

Il proprietario è molto gentile e disponibile

Consigliatissima !!!

Nice house in a beautiful environment

  • 4 of 5

Especially when you are interested in nature this is the right place to be. There are some walks in the vicinity of the house. The house is equipped with everything you need. There are nice views from the house in the green hills, forests and mountains. There is absolutly no disturbing noise. You need a car of your own.

Car: necessary

Motorway to Teramo (A24 coming from Rome, A14 coming from Pescara or Ancona). The owner will meet guests in Teramo and take them to the villa (30 minutes' drive, including Km.3 of white road).

Nearest airports: Pescara, Ancona, Roma Ciampino, Roma Fiumicino.

Nearest railway/coach station: Teramo.

The nearest village, Santo Stefano, is km 6 from the house. There you can find two bars, a grocery store and a restaurant with a large playgroung for children. In nearby Torricella Sicura there are more restaurants, a supermarket, pharmacy, bank etc..

Both Teramo, with its charming historical centre and ancient cathedral, and Ceppo, famous for its forest and waterfalls, are about 30 minutes' drive from the villa. With approx. 1-hour drive you can reach fantastic beach resorts (Giulianova, Tortoreto, Alba Adriatica, Roseto degli Abruzzi etc.), mountain resorts (Prati di Tivo, Prato Selva, Campo Imperatore) and many ancient villages and towns such as Ascoli Piceno, Acquasanta Terme, Atri, Campli, Civitella del Tronto, with their medieval squares, churches and castles. In summertime every village and hamlet hosts a "sagra", the village fair with live music, cultural events and stalls serving local food specialities and wines. In Tortoreto, the Acquapark "Onda Blu" (water park) offers an exhilarating experience for children and adults.

With three national parks and several regional parks and natural reserves, Abruzzo has earned the title of 'greenest region of Europe'. Surrounding regions (Le Marche, Umbria, Lazio) offer countless tourist attractions including Rome (which can be reached in approx. 2 hours by car); Tivoli, famous for Villa Adriana (Roman Emperor Adrian's villa) and Villa d'Este, a Renaissance masterpiece; medieval towns such as Assisi, Norcia, Spello, Spoleto; great beach resorts such as San Benedetto del Tronto.
