About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en-suite) and a stunning terrace. Sleep max 6

This beautiful traditional house is full of character. It is located in the historical medieval centre of Scanno (1050m over see level). This ski resort house has been completely renovated in 2006 to a very high standard. The approx. 100m property has two double bedrooms with great views of the mountains. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. There is also a second bathroom, a spectacular living room with fireplace and sofa bed, a grand kitchen-dining room and a wonderful terrace with beautiful views of the mountains and the town centre. The Ski lift to Scanno Monterotondo is just 3 minutes walk from the house. The ski lift (only 18 euros) leaves from the centre of town and takes you to the base of the ski resort at 1,650M from where others ski lifts take you to several slopes reaching 2000m. Skiing in the National Park of Abruzzo is a different experience. Magical! In summer the ski lift is open to take hikers closer to the heart of the national park.

Please Note: I am more than happy to deal with requests in the following languages:

English, French, Italian or Spanish

Charming Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This lovely restored town home is just as advertised: traditional row house restored to a very high standard in the historic center of the lovely medieval mountain town of Scanno. A great place to get away in a part of Italy that is less-visited by foreign tourists. The town of Scanno is friendly and has dozens of restaurants, most of which will be at your doorstep. Kitchen is well-supplied. There are two nice bathrooms and two very cozy bedrooms on the top two floors. Because the rooms are spread over four floors, this is not the place for those who do not like to climb stairs.

Ein wirklich schönes Haus auf 4 Etagen, geschmackvoll und mit Verstand eingerichtet. Ideal für Wandertouren in die Berge.

Unglaublich freundliche und aufgeschlossene Menschen machen den Aufenthalt unvergesslich.
