About the Owner

Welcome to Casaanna a house in an area we love. We discovered Abruzzo in 2006 while burying Nicky's nanan with her husband in the English war cemetery in Val di Sangro. The history and undiscovered beauty of the area captivated us. Two and a bit years later Casa Anna was finished.

The project was very much a labour of love and was completed by the whole family. As you can see we had a fantastic time and took a great deal of pride in finishing it to a very high standard.

It gives us great pleasure to make it available for others to enjoy and discover this area and the friendly people who live here.

The house is a family house that we enjoy with our children and grand children.

Tracy Jackson June 09. 'The most relaxing holiday I have ever had with my teenage children.'



James Satterley June 09. 'The area is fantastic, the food and wine were to die for. I would have like to explore more but the children were happy in the pool. Vasto Marina is a great beach.'

lovely villa, well appointed, private, fab views

  • 5 of 5

We flew to Rome which meant a long drive 3-4 hours to get to the villa not helped by sat nav tasking us the scenic route off the main road and over the hills. The villa is lovely, located at the end of a track in hilly farmland and completely private and not overlooked. The views over the hills are spectacular and the village can be seen from the terraces. Casalinguida is a pretty hill village, small and quiet. The few shops are ok for basic needs and there is a cashpoint and pharmacy. The bars are small and there is no restaurant. It is a decent walk from the villa, maybe 15mins, but an easy 5 min drive. The villa is very comfortable, well equipped and spacious. There is good wi fi, sat tv , games, books , etc. The living areas and bedrooms are a good size and v comfortable. There are several lovely terraces and balconies The pool is very nice, being on a raised terrace at the rear of the property and in full sun until about 4pm( in July/August). It is graduated from about 3' to over 6' deep with a platform around the edge about 3' deep and a deeper middle area. It is not fenced off. Maria and her husband live locally and were very helpful for any queries we had, and David, the owner responded to e mails and phone calls promptly, although our questions were not urgent! We did find the location of the villa a little more remote than expected so being the sort of family who likes to explore the area rather than pool sitting every day, we did have to drive quite a lot. Vasto, about 20 mins drive away, was a lovely classic old Italian baroque style town with a modern area for all your needs. There is a lively beach here as well with disco bars, etc We drove to Pompeii and Herculaneum for a day (about 2 hours) and took the passenger ferry to Tremeti island( 1 hr drive, 1 hr on ferry) which was a lovely day. Several other day excursions to see beautiful towns (eg Sulmina), stunning castles (eg Roccascalegna) and lovely ancient hill villages (Atessa) but due to lack of tourist information in the area, we largely had to suss things out ourselves. Very few if any Brits around - even tourist info in Vasto did not speak English or had any English pamphlets. Overall, a fantastic holiday in undiscovered Italy, away from the tourist track, in a beautiful relaxing, quiet and private villa. Thoroughly recommended.

Unique quaint and stunning

  • 5 of 5

As a family we wanted a relaxing quiet holiday . We found this property on the web and after a chat to the owner who very helpful and friendly we booked the property . After arriving in Rome and then attempting to find the carhirevwhich I must say was hell on earth and organised confusion. Van got and our journey began the direction e revived to the villa were excellent and we arrived on time .

The villa was stunning with its views and large spacious rooms and the items left were a great help to begin the kids adventure . We were also informed about the local bars shops and places the kids would enjoy is aqua land Vasto . The pool was clean and catered for us all and the roof top balcony was the place for diner and lunch to relax and take in the views at night of the splendid countryside . The people in the village were helpful and the ice cream in San roccos bar to die for .the beer was good too .

Top place to relax , walk and stay 5 star

Beautiful house in magnificent countryside

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first 11 days of our honeymoon in this wonderful house. It was a perfect, remote location for restorative days spent on the sun deck, reading, dipping in and out of the cooling pool, and relaxing evenings barbecuing and eating leisurely suppers looking out onto the superb views. An abundant supply of shops, a couple of bars and a wonderful Agritourismo within a couple of miles meant we didn't need to travel far and a few pretty towns nearby gave us more varied restaurants when we wanted them. The sea was a mere 20 minutes' drive and the location of the house gave excellent access to the mountains.

The house itself was really well equipped and we will definitely be back with friends, to really make use of all the room in the house!

All in all, a lovely villa for a peaceful Italian holiday.

Location

From the Owner

After discovering the area in 2006 we spent the next couple of years searching for what became Casa Anna. We were captivated by the area and it's outstanding beauty both on the coast and in the mountains. The houses location on a wooded knoll gives us 360 degree views that you don't tire from. The weather in the area is superb and the openness of the people make the area enjoyable all year round. For us the rural location yet easy access to the village, town and coast met the needs of the whole family.

Facilities

From the Owner

The area is totally relaxing! Sitting on the terrace, by the pool or walking in the surrounding woodland and orchards the cares of the world evaporate. Every time we stay we find it difficult to return to life in the UK. The house itself is a rebuilt farmhouse. Finished to modern standards yet holding the character of traditional stone and sympathetic to the landscape surrounding it. It's location allows the resident to have a truly relaxing stay and participate in the Italian way of life at your own pace.
