Casa Umberto is a welcoming, spacious property, beautifully restored to provide comfortable and attractive accommodation for up to 6 people. You may not wish to move far from the panoramic terrace and the wonderful sun and starlight, but if you choose to then you'll discover a stunning, varied, and still much unknown region of Italy. Within a 20km sweep you can take in the beaches and warm water of the Adriatic; the mountains and ski-resorts of the Maiella National Park; and the historic city of Lanciano, which pre-dates Rome. Closer to home, the val di Sangro landscape of olives, fruits and vines lies outside the door, with numerous small, picturesque towns in easy reach including Casoli, adjacent across the valley.

Further details indoors

As well as the living accommodation there's a huge space (10m x 5m) downstairs which used to house the olive press (it's nice and cool). This is likely to become a games room next season, but can be used now for anything which needs a lot of space!

There are a further two, good quality and comfortable fold-out beds available should you wish to sleep extra people, or to try a night on the terrace beneath the stars - very beautiful.

Further details outdoors

There's a large, inflatable plunge-pool (9'x6'x20" deep) to set up on the terrace. Perfect for kids as they say, providing they can move the adults basking with the wine.

Further details

Full directions (including photos) from Pescara Airport available upon booking or on request. Interim laundry service for long stays available at a small extra charge: details on request.

The Marche/Abruzzo region

Long popular with Italians as a holiday destination, the secret of Abruzzo is slowly escaping to a wider public. The simple reason is that the area is so beautiful and dramatic, with one third of the territory a nature reserve. This, and the fact that it is still genuinely unspoilt and unpretentious. The people of Abruzzo are properly living, working and socialising here - visitors are welcome and included (children adored) but the restaurants serve real food at uninflated prices and are full of local families. The area is most popular for walking, cycling, swimming and watersports (there are two lakes nearby as well as the coast) together with just ambling and exploring the many small and wonderful Renaissance towns of this historic region. There is also a tradition of craftsmanship from this area to discover, with ceramics, wood, lace-making and gold-work all having a strong base here.

Casoli, Abruzzo

Casoli sits eight minutes across the valley from the house and just where the photographer would have wanted it - improbably, perched high on the hill, a jumble of narrow streets and old stone houses and a church and fortress right at the top. But apart from being pretty, It's a thriving and increasingly popular town of 5000 people and has plenty of amenities from good shops and supermarkets to cafes, a cinema and even automated DVD rental, should you want it. Casoli hosts a thriving Arts Festival during August including outdoor concerts and film screenings and plenty to eat and drink. In general, August is festa season, but if you prefer to rest then from the balcony of Casa Umberto you can still watch distant fireworks on many summer nights. There are numerous, similar, historic towns in the vacinity, each with its days or weeks of celebration.

"Do not even think about it"

We had super instructions and lots of very helpful information from the owners about the property and how to find it. We knew it was off an unmade road but was not told that the access to the house wa… More
