Dominated by the Romanesque style Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption, first consecrated in 1223, Adorning the walls and alter you will see the recently renovated 15th C. wall frescoes created by Andrea De Lito, who the critics consider as one of the most influential masters of the Renaissance style of southern and central Italy. His beautiful and ornate frescoes portray scenes taken from apocryphal gospels. A visit to the splendid two-story Cloister and attached Capitoline Museum that exhibits important religious finds and a superb collection of Castelli ceramics, is a must!

You may like to visit a vineyard in the locality. Our nearest 'Cantina' is Villa Medoro where the rows of vines carpet the hill sides. You can see how the wine is made and taste the lovely fruity Montepulciano Red and Trebbiano White wines.

About the Owner

Bryan and I (Cilla) left England in a Motor-home for an adventure travelling around Europe, discovering amazing places with new new cultures and meeting many new friends. After visiting Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, N. Italy, Slovenia, Bosnia and Croatia, we came to Italy by ferry. Touring around the south of Italy was wonderful. We enjoyed the Italian countryside, the culture, food and way of life but it wasn't until we reached Abruzzo that we totally fell in love with it all! The diversity of the terrain, the customs and culture of this wonderful Region - and most of all the warm and welcoming people, made this the place that we wanted to make our new home. We bought Villa Collina, an old farm house, in an enviable location with wonderful panoramic views from every window. The next year saw us lovingly renovating and restoring the Villa to the highest standards. Friends and family came to stay and loved it too!! We enjoyed our new home so much that we decided to share our little piece of heaven with others who wanted the perfect vacation. A spacious 'home from home' with every facility and convenience, situated in a peaceful and tranquil area of outstanding beauty with many places of interest within easy reach. We meet lovely families coming to stay at the Villa for their vacation, some return year after year and have become firm friends. We live close by so are on hand to help with any queries whether its where to eat the best local dishes, the best shopping centres, the sandy beaches or to give directions to the entertaining local festivals that occur throughout the summer. We offer the perfect venue for couples and families wanting to get away from the stresses of life who like peace, tranquility with interesting sights and a culture that hasn't altered in centuries. We hope to share this with you too very soon!!

Fantastic holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We holidayed with 3 families for two weeks in this lovely villa. Bryan and Cilla couldn't have been more helpful but at the same time not intrusive in any way. We loved the pool, the views, the super local restaurants in the area, the beach at Pineto and the amazing views from every window. The house was clean and there was plenty of clean linen, towels and the kitchen was very well appointed. We certainly plan on coming back to this beautiful unspoilt part of Italy.

Fantastic Italian holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of eight (two generations) and everyone was thoroughly delighted with the villa, it was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the owners, Bryan and Cilla made sure we knew where everything was and how everything worked. All the bedrooms stayed lovely and cool if you kept the shutters closed and because they locked in place it meant you could then keep the windows open on the inside. The villa had everything you could need for a fabulous holiday, all the bed linen and towels were clean and fresh and we would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. It was great to be able to eat out on the terrace and just look across at the mountains and fields that surround the villa, it was always so peaceful. There are plenty of things to do and a visit to Atri is a must, as is the local village up the road.

We have visited Villa Collina for the second year and have only positive words to say! We had a lovely vacation in this beautiful house and surroundings and would recommend it to anyone. The children loved the pool and the hosts are so friendly and helpful. The surroundings are very peaceful but still close to beaches, nice restaurants and vineyards. We loved it!

Wunderbar luxuriöse Villa in toller Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

In den letzten 10 Jahren hatten wir einige Villen / Häuser in verschiedenen Regionen in Italien bewohnt - diese Villa zählt zu den allerbesten und ist kaum mehr zu toppen. Das Haus und die Außenbereiche sind sehr geräumig (auch für 10 Personen), alles sehr gepflegt und kaum abgenutzt, die Küche lädt zum Selbst-Kochen ein. Die Vermieter waren ausgesprochen freundlich, sehr zurückhaltend und bei Bedarf sehr hilfsbereit. Die Abruzzen eignen sich wunderbar für Aktivurlaub in den Bergen. Besonders hervorzuheben ist der angenehm geringe Tourismus (Ausnahme die Küste).

Villa Collina is in a quiet and secluded position with stunning panoramic views. Many wonderful places of interest both artistic, architectural or of a natural nature are close-by. Our local village, Cellino Attanasio, once a fortified Monastery, has 15C Walls & Towers which offer magnificent views of the sea, hills & mountains. The artistic hilltop town Atri, is a 'jewel' in the locality & its protected Nature Reserve of clay erosion furrows - The Calanchi di Atri, are just 10 mins from the Villa. The glorious Adriatic coast with long golden sandy beaches & clear turquoise sea is just 20 mns away. Abruzzo prides its self on its Blue-Flag clean beach status. Giulianova has a fun Water Park whilst Pescara hosts a modern & well equipped Marina. Ski resorts with lifts & full hire facilities are just 1 hour drive away. Other interesting towns include Teramo, Castelli, San Gabrielle, Medieval Ascoli Picano & the impressive Fortress at Civitella Del Tronto are all a 'must visit' in this area

Other Activities: At Villa Collina we offer drawing and art workshops.

Golf: We have several excellent Golf course in Abruzzo. The nearest golf centre is the 18 hole course at the Miglianico Golf and Country Club centre near Francavilla al Mare 58 km away

Ski: Skiing in winter mionths is a joy here in Abruzzo with many resorts just an hour drive from Villa Collina. Much less populated than in northern Italy, you will find the Abruzzi ski resorts have great facilities, runs of all levels and lifts devoid of annoying queues.

There are comrehensive hire facilities in every resort and tuition for all levels of skier. Expert help is on hand for the complete beginner on the Nursery slopes and for more advanced skiers you will find an expert to assist in all techniques of skiing. You can join a class of a few students, opt for One to One assisitance and also hire an expert local guide if you wish to explore cross-country through the amazing winter wonderland forests and slopes of the Apennine Mountains.

Apre ski is of course enjoyed in the many bars and restaurants at the resorts and ample parking means no long hike to find the car at the end of a glorious but tiring day on the slopes!
