About the Owner
I am a retired Scottish nurse who has lived in Italy for nearly ten years now. I live upstairs from the self catering apartment so am on hand to provide advice and help when guests arrive or at anytime during their stay. I ran a bed and breakfast on the island of Skye before moving to Abruzzo so I have had plenty of experience of making guests feel comfortable and providing an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. I speak Italian so if guests need any help in shopping or eating out I am more than pleased to give them any advice or even as has happened several times taking them to the shopping centre or local village to show them where all the facilities are. My home is open to my guests and they can be assured of a wonderful holiday in Abruzzo.

This beautiful comfortable house ticks all the boxes! It was just like a home from home, with all of the necessary appliances to make cooking easy and enjoyable for a "self catering novice" :) the owner was very helpful friendly and informative without appearing intrusive in any way and we were left to enjoy our stay feeling completely relaxed and comfortable. Can recommend this house 500% :))
A delightful, very well equipped apartment which actually forms the whole ground floor of a detached 2 storey house. The owner lives above but you each have your own separate entrance. The owner is very friendly whilst not intrusive. Advice is there if you want or need it. The apartment has amazing views of the surrounding mountains and countryside and a lovely garden to enjoy it from. This part of Abruzzo has outstanding scenery and some lovely villages. A car is essential though if you want to get out and about and see it all. All in all an excellent property and definitely recommended.
From the Owner
“This is a beautiful and unspoilt area of Italy. It is covered with trees right up to the snow topped mountains and has wonderful safe clean beaches within half an hour of my house. I bought my farmhouse because it has wonderful views of the Gran Sasso mountains and the medieval village of Bisenti. It is half way between the mountains and the sea so guests have the chance to tour the beautiful countryside or spend the day relaxing on the beach. This is an area unspoilt by tourism so anyone looking to appreciate a truly Italian experience would find this place enchanting. My house is surrounded by olive groves and lovely gardens there is private secure parking and a terrace for guests to sunbathe and relax.”

From the Owner
“The apartment is very large, in fact could easily sleep six, but I prefer to let only to couples so that they have space to relax and enjoy the environment. The French doors open out onto the terrace where they can sunbathe in privacy. other doors open out onto the gardens where guests are encouraged to pick fruit from the trees. There is an enchanting village within a few minutes drive which has all the facilities two supermarkets bank chemist two butchers bakers and a bank with an ATM. There are wonderful local restaurants nearby. All this including breathtaking scenery from an apartment which has been professionally designed makes for a remarkable holiday location.”
