About the property

Nice Mountain vilage house in Centro Storico

House in two levels, bedroom on ground floor, sofa bed on second floor. Located in the historic Center of Goriano Sicoli in Abruzzo, but close to Rome and the Adriatic beach town of Pescara via regular (i.e. no changes) train service. Well equipped and newly renovated, house has a full kitchen with a sleeping sofa on one floor, and a bedroom and living area on the other, which includes a fireplace, bath with shower, as well as the bedroom. Goriano is located at 700 meters, just above the larger town of Raiano. Sulmona is the closest larger town about 15 minutes away.

About Nick Rossi

Goriano is the family home of my Grandparents.

Nick Rossi purchased this house in 2014

Why Nick Rossi chose Goriano Sicoli

Great location to base travel from. Ryanair has two hub airports, one in Rome and one at Pescara on the Adriatic Sea. Train Italia provides regular direct service from Pescara to Rome with no Train changes. If you like to drive, the trip to Naples directly thru the mountains (rather than Rome, then south along the sea) is fantastic. Venice is directly north along the Adriatic, make a stop in Bologna to visit the worlds oldest University...

What makes this house unique

Train service makes travel from this location easy. There are easy connections to Rome from Goriano's new train station. Quick direct trains to mid-sized cities Avezzano and Sulmona makes visiting the weekly markets, or just exploring possible without a car...

A rustic setting in an ancient, fascinating village

  • 5 of 5

Nick is genuinely passionate about Goriano and its ancient history. He generously supplied us with food, condiments and everything essential for people wishing to self-cater. His house is unusual, quirky and very charming and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

When Nick was unable to be around, he left us in the care of Sandra and Antonio who were warm, friendly and very helpful. We felt like part of two new families (i.e., Nick's and Sandra's).

Nick also left us with plenty of information and choices of places to visit, of which there are many in the region. All in all, an interesting and pleasurable visit!

Gradevole soggiorno.

  • 4 of 5

Borgo e accoglienza eccezionali, aria pulita e luoghi da esplorare. La casa è piccola ma confortevole, con un'ottima vista sulle montagne circostanti. Consigliato per una coppia o per chi, come me, ha famiglia.
