Further details indoors

In the morning, you will wake up overlooking the protected evergreen forests and step out onto your balcony for a view of the historic town of Atessa. Then you can breakfast on the terrace, selecting whichever view you like, olive groves, snow capped mountains, even one of the sea! As Casa Pietra was built in the 18th Century, the solid stone walls are several feet thick which keeps the property super cool in the summer, yet warm in the winter, all naturally.

The farmhouse has been lovingly restored, and achieves the right marriage between revealing original features, such as vaulted ceilings, bedroom balconies with ironwork, and stone archways whilst providing the most modern facilities you would expect to find.

Further details outdoors

Within the Casa Pietra estate you can enjoy the bubbling stream, the swimming pool, take a relaxing walk through the extensive grounds, or enjoy an active relaxation with the kids in the activity area which includes swings, rocking seats, monkey rings and a trapeze. At the end of the day you can enjoy al fresco dining in the purpose built barbecue area, complete with stone seat, whilst admiring the uninterrupted vistas as the Italian sun sets.

Further details

The Casa Pietra "welcome gift" includes a bowl of seasonal fruit, and a bottle of locally produced wine to enjoy on the terrace as the sun goes down on your arrival day. You will also receive details on local information, which lets you know all the best places to eat, drink, party and shop.

The Marche/Abruzzo region

Abruzzo, a land for discovery. Abruzzo has three National Parks, Regional Park and another 30 Nature Reserves, which makes it the greenest region in Europe. The region is untouched, with the seemless essence of Alpine and mediterranean environments.

130 km of coastline, offset by the two highest peaks in the Apennines. Abruzzo hystory is etched in the thousand castles and Medieval abbeys that still watch over the ancient landscape. There are multitudes of picturesque vilages, each clustered around its church, tower or its castle, this makes the region so splendid, and in many ways, so unique.

Atessa

The house is in the province of Chieti, between the Majella National Park and the Adriatic. This area is considered one of the regions most interesting areas, due to its stunning natural beauty and landcapes, as well as its extraordinary cultural features.

The area is distinguished by the presence of some of Abruzzo's most important fortresses: the majestic castle of Roccascalegna is one one of the most important. Lanciano, one of the most important and well preserved old town, with turreted alls, picturesque narrow street and churches.

Vasto clutches at an insecure cliff to dominate the coast, in an astonishing natural scenario. A thriving commercial centre, lively culture and a wealth of monuments and works or art.

Atessa is our local town and stands on two hills and has shops resturants and many medieval gates, arches and narrow streets. Largo di Bomba is an unspoilt natural setting with a beautiful lake and two excellent outside swimming pools. The coast line is a mix of sandy beaches and craggy reefs, accentuated by the elevated structures of the Trabocchi, ancient fishing machines, that jut out over the sea.
