Villa in Penne, Abruzzo, Italy - Stunning Views Over The Gran Sasso Mountains, 30 Minutes From The Adriatic Beaches, Perfect

Enjoying an unrivalled position in the foothills of the Gran Sasso mountain range, with stunning views of both the Gran Sasso and Miella. This 2- bedroomed villa nestles in a small hamlet with just two other properties one of which is owned by a farmer who produces eggs, cheese and olive oil. The part of the villa which is let is the ground floor apartment. The upper floor is used infrequently by the owners who respect your privacy and allow you priority use of the pool.

It is located just 4 kilometres from the medieval town of Penne, 30 minutes from the Adriatic beaches, 45 minutes from the ski slopes of the Miella and 25 minutes from the Rome/Bari/Ancona motorway network. The Villa has been stylishly renovated and split into 2 separate dwellings, this holiday rental being on the ground floor and comprising 2 large double bedrooms, with one of the sofas in the large sitting room turning in to a comfortable kingsize double bed, making a total maximum sleeping capacity of 6. It has a fully tiled floor and is cool and shady in the summer, warm and cosy in the winter. The kitchen has an attractive open fireplace, large butchers block/island and room for 6 people to sit comfortably round the table. It has a separate spacious living room.

Stunning Views

  • 4 of 5

Lovely setting away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to civilization. A great place to sit and relax admiring the wonderful views surrounding the property. Penne is just a few minutes drive away and has all the shops you need plus a weekly market. You have the option of going up into the mountains and exploring the local villages or driving to the beach at Pescara. There are plenty of restaurants and bars available in the surrounding area.

The kitchen and lounge provide ample room for six plus the bedrooms are bright and spacious. Outside provides areas of shade as well as sunbathing by the pool.

Penne is a historical town and commune in the province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo Region of Italy. It sits in the hills between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Its churches include the 12th-century church of Santa Maria in Colleromano, and the Duomo, which now houses the Diocese Museum including a crypt dating from the 8th century. Other churches include Sant'Agostino (with a historical bell-tower), San Giovanni Battista, San Giovanni Evangelista, Annunziata, Madonna del Carmine, San Nicola, San Domenico. The main characteristic of the old town is its streets and houses are built in bricks, so in the past Penne was known as 'the small Siena'.

  • Garden


  • Self-catering


  • Outside: There is a large well planted garden with the private swimming pool and decking (installed in 2014) nestling at the foothills of the mountains to provide outstanding views alongside the outside living area. The pool is round and measures 5 meter in diameter. It is all one depth. The pool is built into a wedge in the hill so the decking only goes round one side of it. Steps lead from the villa up on to a higher level where there are stepping stones to the pool and decking area. This faces south and offers stunning views across the mountains. There is a second paved area where you can sit, sip wine and look out over the beautiful landscape. Behind the villa is an orchard with 36 olive trees owned by us. This creates a lovely picnic area offering natural shade from the trees. Utility Room: The utility room is located in the exterior bakehouse and contains a Pizza oven, modern boiler and the washing machine. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bed linen and towels are provided. The villa is cleaned when guests leave and in preparation for incoming guests. Swimming pool towels are provided.
