About MIKE HORAN

Before I retired from the construction industry I spent three years annual holidays in Italy looking for house I could renovate. Abruzzo seemed the best choice because for the most part it still remains an unspoilt and beautiful region of Italy. This is especially true in the mountains where half of the area is national park.

MIKE HORAN purchased this villa in 2000

Why MIKE HORAN chose Torricella Sicura

I found this house at the end of a remote valley on the edge of a forest and I fell in love with it right away. Having passed my boyhood exploring the forest and lake behind our home it seemed the ideal place to spend my holidays,

What makes this villa unique

Although located in the peace and quiet of a rural setting a journey of one hour brings you to the ski slopes, the beach and many mountain villages. The wooded valleys on your doorstep surrounding the house are criss crossed with many logging trails allowing you to explore the spectacular scenery and the varied wildlife. If swimming and sun bathing are your thing then there is no need to leave the house.

Beautiful house, beautiful surroundings, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed during one of the hot spells of Italian summer 2017 at Magnolia, a village with few houses and set in the hills beyond the Adriatic coast. The villa has been renovated and done so in an intelligent and comfortable manner. There was ample space for us individually as well as enjoying each other's company at the various terraces or tables. The pool was a perfect way of cooling down combined with the soft breezes that came blowing over the hills at the backside. Our view was spectacular changing everytime the sun took in a different position.

Leaving the house took some energy. To travel over the unpaved road leading to the villa was, however, alleviated by the 4WD provided as part of the package deal. It also allowed us to venture around in the various rocky and mountainous terrains, and visiting typical and so picturesque Italian hillside villages (Civitella del Tronto an absolute favorite). The Gran Sasso park itself is of course a wonderful way of coming across all sorts of wild animals (we saw foxes, boars, deer, and heard wolves) While we did not visit the seaside as much, there are plenty of little (and some considerable bigger ones for those enjoying that) beach resorts in reasonable distance.

For all its great places and experiences, we were certainly surprised (and thankful) for the absence of greater groups of tourists.

Thank you, Mike, for always being available in the case of assistance. We certainly would like to return one day.
