About the property


Wake up and kiss the mountains!

Abruzzo is off the tourist track and unchanged. A third of the region is national and regional parks; it has 129 kilometres of sandy beaches & 21 ski areas. Villa Maieletta is south-facing and sits in rolling hills on a quiet country lane close to the historic hill-top town of Palombaro, with unrivalled views of the Abruzzo landscape.

Experience and enjoy the rhythms of rural life, from the porchetta van & cafe culture to Festa month in August and the December torchlight parade to our tiny church. Join us for Shabby Chic workshops, olive harvesting, or an activity holiday. We are situated amidst great walking, cycling & motorcycling country. The Giro D'Italia frequently passes close by us in May.

Relax in the classic Italian splendour of your apartment, or immerse yourself in the stunning landscape that surrounds you.

At Villa Maieletta you can be in the mountains in the morning, on the beach in the afternoon and dine in the countryside under the stars.

About Kate and Stephen Cope

Kate and Stephen have travelled extensively and lived in different countries in Asia. Their interests include cycling, walking, growing organic fruit and countryside conservation. Both delight in living in and learning from communities that provide a different experience, and are keen to support local enterprises.They feel that living on site enables them to provide a complete holiday experience for guests, through their knowledge of the area and local events. They live in the Villa grounds away from the apartments, and do their best to make guests feel at home, and to be a resource for advice and information, without being intrusive

Kate and Stephen love living so close to the mountains and consider themselves very lucky to have finally settled in such a lovely area.

Why Kate and Stephen Cope chose Chieti

Time stands almost still in Limiti, a rural place where the pattern, sights and sounds of life are as they would have been decades ago. Some of the people have changed, many of the families have not, and we are very lucky to have great people living nearby and to be part of a community that embraces our guests as positively as it has embraced us.

The views we enjoy are stunning, together with the peaceful surrounding environment, where a mere tractor passing by is an event to arouse curiousity. The Villa is tucked away in a quiet corner of Abruzzo and is just right, a little bubble of tranquility without being either remote or isolated. The road to the Villa is tarmac all the way, important to make the journey easy for us, and for our guests.

A gentler pace of life

  • 5 of 5

The scenery is so stunning you want to get up as early as possible so as not to waste any time away from the views. It is visual heaven.

This marvelous settings unifies the natural world with the Renaissance dwellings perfectly.

Steve and Kate are the best hosts with the most beautiful house you could wish for to compliment this truly breathtaking landscape.

They have invested loads of time and detail into creating this first class property adding playful naturalistic floral Rococo interiors into possibly, the best holiday destination in the Abruzzo region of Italy.

A real moment was when Steve projected European football on to walls of one the buildings at least 40 foot in size and we sat back on the roof terrace attempting to keep focus on who will score the next goal whilst continually being distracted by the real stars floating above in a truly clear sky. Steve informs me he will be showing films on his exterior walls on more occasions.

I Will definitaley be booking to visit here again.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights in Casa Maieletta. It was immaculately clean on arrival and well equipped for our stay. The bed was huge and really comfortable. Kate and Stephen were most helpful and assisted with any questions that we had. Kate also gave us marmalade which she had made and figs from the trees. There was also a tv/computer available and snooker table with books and maps of the area.

The area was very pretty with hills in the background which if it hadn't been too hot would have been a delight to walk up. The local villages were interesting to visit. The coast was about half an hour away with a variety of beaches, sandy and pebbly.

This is the perfect location for those that like beaches and the countryside as you get the best of both worlds. The hosts, Kate and Stephen were really friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Maieletta as a place to stay in Abruzzo. We loved our holiday here.
