This is a very special property featured in the TV programme : 'A Place in the Sun'. It is a newly restored traditional house standing in its own private grounds of 3.5 acres including a wonderful 1.2 acre olive grove. Both house and olive grove view directly onto the Gran Sasso massif rising to just short of 3000m. Although extremely private, lying along its own track of around 200m it is only 3-4 minutes from the ancient pre-Roman town of Atri that has a Cathedral, several magnificent churches, a theatre, an archaeological museum and many cafes, trattorie and restaurants. It is only 10 -15 minutes from the Pine shaded beach at Pineto. At the same time it is just 45 minutes from Castelli and the National Parks around the Gran Sasso that have wonderful summer walking. So you can choose both. A great advantage in the summer is that we are at 400m altitude. So after the heat of the beach, you can return home quickly in the evening, and sleep in fresh air much better than is possible close to the sea.

Fabulous house with incredible views. Utterly peaceful and relaxing!
We would go back here any time! The house is very clean and well-equipped with a good kitchen, excellent beds and nice dining table and lounge. Most of all it is very private and utterly peaceful. It feels like stepping into another world even though it is only a couple of hundred metres from the road. The views are completely stunning! We found that it worked much better than actually being at the beach because the air is fresher away from the coast and it's much easier to sleep well. In fact very well! We usually had morning coffee on the balcony and evening drink in the porch looking straight out at the mountains. We went to the beach at Pineto about 10km away, and shopping and restaurants were easy in Atri. There's a good cathedral there and even a theatre right on the square which is good for coffee.
A wonderful view from the terrace
Now we have returned to Denmark from our summer holidays in Abruzzo.
We would like to thank you for renting your wonderful house near Atri for one week.
The view from the house to Gran Sasso is quite exceptionel and we enjoyed every minute we spent at the terrace.
Thank you very much. It really is a wonderful place and I am very glad that you enjoyed your time with us. With best wishes, Anna
The most relaxing place we have ever been.
We can't wait to return as it is the most relaxing place we have ever been.
Abruzzo is probably Italy's most unspoiled region and a high proportion is protected by National Parc Status. Our house lies on the edge of the WWF Natural Park of the Calanchi and has completely uninterrupted views straight to the 3000m Gran Sasso about 45 minutes away by car. At the same time the wonderful sandy beach at Pineto is only about 8 minutes away and is very unusual in being shaded by beautiful mature Pine trees. Our olive grove is about 1.2 acres of complete peace with fireflies in May and June and birds, butterflies and grasshoppers, and peace to read, talk, think - and be!
