Traditional Old Italian Villa Restored with Private Fresh Water Pool



Updated: 22-Nov-2016
Villa near Atri, Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy - Semi Rural Location Just Outside Village

Casa Gialla is a beautiful traditional Italian villa which dates back to the early 1800's. The villa is set within secure private grounds accessed via electric gates. The property has been recently restored to a high standard and specification by the current owners using local trades persons. The downstairs vaulted ceilings have been beautifully restored to show this stunning architectural feature. The house is situated just outside the village of Fontanelle and has 360 degree views of the spectacular surrounding countryside and mountains. Great place to relax and unwind sat by the pool or to be a base to enjoy the quality beach resorts nearby.

Highly Recommended. Superb Villa, Gardens and Pool

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully restored house in a fabulous private location. Our party of 2 adults and 2 teenagers had a fantastic holiday; relaxing at the Villa, exploring the mountain villages and visiting the shopping centres. Margaret & Ian were prompt to acknowledge our enquiry and their efficiency made the whole booking process easy. Their home is large and comfortable with light and airy rooms and beautiful stone architecture. The bedrooms are spacious with lovely bed linen. The gardens are well kept - we ate the figs from the tree and had the fresh limes in our drinks. There is a fantastic fresh water swimming pool - perfect for lilo races and water polo! The terrace has stunning views across the whole valley and is lovely for outdoor dining (BBQ's recommended). The location is perfect for visiting lovely villages, shopping and eating out. Highly recommended - the pool is simply fabulous - the Wi-Fi (an important factor for our teenagers) was superb and the house had a really comfortable feel. The photo's really don't do it justice - they haven't quite captured the beauty of the Villa and the surrounding countryside

Activity and Interests


15 minutes by car to nearby excellent sandy beach resorts of Roseto and Pineto, both with numerous shops, beach cafes, bars, seafood & pizza restaurants and safe play areas for children. Beach football, volleyball and trampolining at both beach's. Pineto has a shady pine forest behind the beach which can be a welcome break from the summer sun, ideal for walking and running along. The beach areas remain busy in the evening when the locals take time out for a stroll along the beach front.


Nearest airport is Pescara about 40 mins drive. Ancona is about 1.5 hours. Rome is about 2 hours. Car hire is essential to get around this stunningly beautiful area.

Pescara has a direct rail service to Rome, Milan and Bari. Pineto and Roseto has a rail service to Pescara and Ancona.


The historic medieval town of Atri is 10 mins drive with its excellent restaurants, bars, cafes and fantastic views. The abruzzo region is full of historical villages and sites to explore with many nature walks in the Gran Sasso area for the more energetic within 30 mins drive. Pescara is the nearest large city with high street shops, banks and a marina where you can sample the fresh local catch of the day.

Further Details:

Casa Gialla is situated on the outskirts of the village of Fontanelle, complete with 2 Bars, 2 Restaurants, garage and a small local supermarket. Pineto has an excellent local farmers market every Saturday morning to buy fresh fish, Cheeses, fruit, vegetables and flowers. Nearby village of Casoli (5 mins drive) has a bank, bakers, butchers and supermarket in the main piazza. Larger supermarkets are in Pineto, Roseto and Atri. The nearby local villages hold their traditional 'Sagras' in the summer months. They are an ideal opportunity to sample local food, wine and music or just to sit and watch people enjoying themselves Italian style. Waterpark 20 mins drive from the house. Car essential.
