The pool (9x4x1.5) is sunk into a well lit decking area equipped with sunbeds, large sun brolly and shaded seating area. This area is completely private and offers spectacular views overlooking the olive grove looking out to the Adriatic coast.

Surrounding Area

The local historic town of Penne is just 2-3KM away offering a selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets and shops as well as a Saturday Market. There is also a hospital, a number of pharmacies and dentists just in case you need them.

The Adriatic coastal towns Muti Silvano and Pescara are just 30 to 40 minutes drive from the Villa. Here you will find beautiful golden beaches, incredible local restaurants and an extensive range of shop. There is also the local airport in Pescara which is the closest to the Villa.

Abruzzo Season

This area of Italy is fairly predictable in terms of weather and ythe pool is opened from end of May to the end of September. Typical weather in May and June is warm, lots of sunshine but also can be stormy. Late June, July and August are very warm with the odd shower. September and October are beautiful months as it's not too hot with lots of sunny days, town Festa's and local events. If you are not tied to July/August school dates then you should try September or, if you are not worried about the pool, even October.

We will consider Xmas bookings for a minimum of 7 days only.

About The Owner

Professional UK couple currently living in Berkshire, UK. Purchased the property in 2013 and lived there until 2017 to return to the UK for work related purposes.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2013

Why The Owner chose Penne

Great location with spectacular panoramic views. Mountains to the rear, valley and coast to the front. Remote yet just a 5 minute drive to the busy town of Penne that really captures the Italian flavour.

Amazing aspect view pool and outside eating/drinking spots each with different views and complete privacy.

Spacious, clean, and well equipped modern internal living area with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

What makes this villa unique

Set in 5 acres of 100+ year Olive trees, fully fenced and gated for complete privacy.

Too many places to mention within 1 hour drive including the amazing Gran Sasso plains where you can enjoy a serious BBQ in the wild outdoors.

And you have to try the Arrosticini that is unique to Abruzzo

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic open kitchen which was great for shared cooking, impromptu joint snacking and kitchen parties.

Secluded, secure and with great views.

Great bathrooms and general accomodation.

Lots of aircon and fans.

Mosquito nets on all windows and most doors kept the place fresh and fly/zanzare free.

Karen and Al were friendly, helpful and always available, and suggested Da Margherita to eat (WOW!)

Lovely villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 10 (5 adults, 5 children) who had a wonderful fortnight in Villa Uliveto. The scenery is breathtaking and there is ample space in both the villa and the grounds. The pool is about 1.2m in depth and perfect for children. Although the villa is in a very quiet location it’s only a 5 minute drive away from the beautiful town of Penne.

A car is essential, but it’s well worth driving into the mountains or heading towards the Adriatic Coast. Very few locals spoke English but were all incredibly friendly which added to the charm of our stay. We ate out on several occasions and found the food to be excellent value each time.

The owners and property managers could not have done more to help us enjoy our stay to the maximum (suggesting things to do and restaurants to visit) and I would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone seeking to visit the wonderful region of Abruzzo.

Pastoral life in Abruzzo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Uliveto for two weeks. The house lies in an olive grove about 3 km outside of Penne and you definitely need a car to get anywhere and to do the shopping etc. The location is very peaceful, except for the nights when the myriad of dogs living in the neighbourhood start their concert. The villa is well equipped with everything one might need, the kitchen big and nice to work in and the portico with its big table perfect for dinners. The views from the balcony of the bedroom level and from the pool area are absolutely gorgeous with hills, valleys and the Adriatic Sea, which is normally visible at least in the morning before haze hides it. On the other side one can see the mountains of Gran Sasso area.

The old town of Penne is very charming and you can spend there many hours just wandering around the narrow alleys and sitting in the cafes. Otherwise there isn’t much to see or do in Penne and you need a car if you want to go to the mountains or to the seaside. Everything seems to be nearby but the roads are so windy that it takes at least an hour to get anywhere.

Casa Uliveto is a perfect place for example for families who want to take it easy, to do excursions to the mountains or seaside and have kids big enough to know how to swim. The owner and housekeepers are very helpful in everything.
