About the property

House in Goriano Sicoli, Nr. Sulmona, Abruzzo, Italy - Hill-top Village Peaceful Location

The little house is tucked away in the centre of a medieval hill-top village, amongst the cobbled streets, set over 3 floors (entry at ground level, stairs to kitchen/living room, stairs to bedroom & bathroom). The bedroom is spacious and you can step through the double French doors onto the little balcony to look at the sleepy hillside. The only noise will be from the Roma train chugging round the hill bends a couple of times a day, and local villagers having a chat! This is NOT a tourist area - you'll need your phrase book - the accommodation has no Landline, TV, Internet or DVD - it's completely a 'get away from it all' break to get some rest and to discover cheap, quality food and coffee in the local restaurants and cafes. The beach towns and Pescara airport are about 40 mins drive, Rome is around 90 mins drive.

About Mrs Rebecca Ramsden

About the owner:

I live in England with my husband and 3 cats.

Mrs Rebecca Ramsden purchased this house in 2005

Why Mrs Rebecca Ramsden chose L'Aquila

We were looking for a small house in Italy and chose Abruzzo because it was so much more reasonably priced than Tuscany. The region is so varied, from rolling fields of poppies and sunflowers in spring, to snow-capped mountains. Our hill-top location is a bit of both! We fell for the village and the property's location right by the castle walls.

What makes this house unique

We love the local restaurants, the excellent priced food and wine, but most of all we love the fact that it's really 'rustic' - basic accommodation in a tucked away village location. We enjoy a drive to the 'local' lake Lago di Scanno - it takes around 40 minutes to drive but it's worth it for the amazing scenery on the way, and to sit on the lakeside pebble beach with a glass of Prosecco.
