About Rosanna Bianchini

We have been coming to Abruzzo for the last 40 years, it's a beautiful, very green, and relaxed part of Italy. Our family is from this area so any questions, just ask, we know the local area well! We built the house in the 24 acre rural plot specifically to accommodate our three families, so it was purpose designed with attention to detail to work for people to share and enjoy – we've found it great for both large families or family group holidays, and grownup escapes. The villa is set within the grounds of the conserved original farm house, it has been architecturally designed with the result of modern living but with all the views and beauty of traditional rural Italy. I've over 25 years experience in providing rental properties – you can be sure of a professional service when booking Villa Calgiano. Please do take a look at the Facilities, Location and Reviews tabs for lots more info on the surrounding area and house itself!

Rosanna Bianchini purchased this villa in 2008

Why Rosanna Bianchini chose Province of Teramo

This area is beautiful; its landscape is rural, rolling hills sloping softly down to the sandy beaches along the local coast line. There are few English speaking voices heard even in summer as visitors tend to be holiday makers from other regions of Italy coming for the sun, sea and R&R.

There is still a lovely connection to the land as there is a lot of farming in the area. You'll find a daily market in different local towns pretty much every day of the week! Selling fresh, locally grown produce, sold by the small holders themselves. Not to mention the vans tempting freshly roasted succulent porchetta, or fried sea food stalls, both a speciality of the area!

There's a local bus service to villages and sea too.

Our location is served by three airports, Pescara, 35 mins, Ancona 75 mins and Rome 2 hours drive.

What makes this villa unique

Large and airy accommodation, it was designed to accommodate our two families so Villa Calgiano ideal for large families or shared holidays

Idyllic views, outstanding property, great host

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was exceptional. Our family of 7 siblings and their spouses/significant others met for a birthday celebration at the Villa and our expectations were exceeded. The villa was immaculate, the grounds beautiful and the included amenities were as stated. Every where you turned was another breathtaking view. Our host, Rosanna, and her associates Melanie, Kristian and Adriana were extremely accommodating and helpful. Melanie went food shopping for us prior to our arrival and got our kitchen stocked. Kristian arranged a day of wine-tasting and took us to 3 local wineries. They were all great and it was nice to have a guide and a driver! Adriana cooked us two meals that were both spectacular (along with a birthday cake) and accommodated our more picky eaters. The restaurant across the street, Villa Clesia was a big plus to have so close and the food was also fantastic. All in all it was one of the best vacations my family has taken. I would highly recommend this villa for bigger groups and anyone wanting to explore the Abruzzo area of Italy. It was my first time there and we will be back.

Amazing family holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

Amazing family holiday destination with a touch of luxury at every turn.

We stayed here with 3 generations of family the youngest being primary aged children. From every window and every shaded outdoor relaxation area there was a view perfect for a post card. The villa was beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. The kitchen was very well appointed and had everything you could need to make a feast for our 10 people or a quick easy snack for the kids. With a nice winery only 10 minutes drive away, authentic restaurants and bistros not much further away and the Giulianova beach only a little further you really do have everything you can want very near by. We left wanting for nothing more and are already planning our next trip. I'd highly recommend this villa.

Enjoy! :-)

Memorable vacation in a gorgeous, modern villa surrounded by breathtaking views and clean breezes.

  • 5 of 5

We had a most memorable two week stay in the summer of 2017. We were a large group with children ranging from teenagers to toddlers. The pool and deck area was a luxurious treat for the whole family. The bedrooms were very comfortable with modern and comfortable ensuites in each. The villa is perfectly situated with gorgeous views from every angle.

The Abruzzo region has so many charming, authentic and welcoming towns to explore. Abruzzo had a deep and interesting history as well as beautiful nature reserves, mountains and seaside. There was too much to do and two weeks were not enough. Gulianova Beach has many reasonable and clean Lidos with great resto-bars. The beach is a 15 minute drive with pretty, wide and white sandy beaches. Gulianova is both Hip and family friendly. Abruzzese food and dining is really good and so very well priced.

The Abruzzo region has some of the most scenic drives in Italy, with rolling hills, vineyards, olive trees that lead the eye to the Adriatic on the east side or magestic views of the mountains on the west side.

The landlord of the villa was very responsive and accommodating. If we had any queries during the planning stage as well as during our stay we always received a quick and eager response. It was a pleasure dealing with the landlord. The property was very well maintained and we felt at home from the first day. The villa is well situated for day trips but is also a beautiful place to just stay put and relax by the pool under the umbrella with a great book while the children have fun in the pool. There are also many covered outdoor areas which we used to dine al fresco. The villa provided all the comforts of home, with a fully equipped kitchen, really comfy sofas in the living room as well as comfy loungers on the deck.

It was a great stay overall in a lovely house in a great region of Italy. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: I couldn't agree more Elena; beautiful region, restful location and so pleased you found the villa well suited to your large family group with its many facilities and home comforts. We also love the fact that we can all be there together, and yet each feel ample space to relax. Thank you for your review, which I'm sure others will find useful when planning their holiday in Abruzzo!

A fantastic house for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have previously rented several vacation homes in the past, but this was easily one of the best home rental experiences we have ever had.

From the initial contact with Rosanna to the time we left the property we could not have asked for more. Here are just a few of the many things we enjoyed:

- The owner (Rosanna) was very easy to contact, provided a lot of useful information, and was genuinely concerned about our comfort.

- The property was just as pictured, in fact the photos don't do it justice. It is clean, spacious and well appointed.

- The setting is private and quiet, and the views from the property are amazing.

- An excellent restaurant (Villa Clesia) is in walking distance.

In summary, if you are looking for a large home that can accommodate a family, or a few couples look no further you won't find a home better than this one. I am already looking forward to future stays.

I look forward to welcoming you back!

Abruzzo is the greenest region in Europe and the area is known for producing quality olive oil and wine. At Villa Calgiano, we have olive picking happening between end of October and mid November. Guests are welcome to join in the process of picking, weighing and taking the olives to be pressed – and watch the harvest being transformed into oil, or simply come and see the process at any point along the way. Please contact us for dates. For the weeks during the olive picking season our farm proprietor will be resident in the annex apartment building within the grounds of Villa Calgiano. He is fluent in both English and Italian and has a great local knowledge of the area.
