The Abruzzo region
The region and local area is of outstanding beauty set in the foothills of the mountains on the edge of the Majella National Park which is home to all sorts of wild animals (including wolves and bears!) Walks can be organised for mushroom or truffle gathering, picking wild asparagus, or just for sightseeing. Both local villages have banking facilities, shops, restaurants and cafes.
One is sleepy and tranquil, one more lively. In the summer all the villages organise local festivals and there are medieval processions and exhibitions. Our local village organises a mountain walk. There are many untouched villages around with not a tourist in sight. This is hidden Italy. Beautiful clean beaches are within 30 mins. drive.
The house has exceptional views, even within an area of outstanding beauty, because it is situated on its own hill with sweeping panoramic views of mountains, valleys, the plain leading to Pescara and even glimpses of the sea. That is why we bought it. Its location is also excellent, being 20 minutes from Pescara airport (2 hours from Rome Ciampino), 30 minutes from gorgeous beaches and 30 minutes from the ski slopes.
It is between two medieval villages, both 5 minutes drive away. This area rarely gets tourists apart from Italians revisiting their former homes. Therefore people are very friendly, food is inexpensive and local festivals are authentic. In the summer all local villages sport their own festivals which are often medieval. Walks are lovely whatever time of year.
The pool is completely private, the house is very tranquil and the only sounds are from the nearby sheep.

"Amazing location, would definitely come back"

"Lovely house in a brilliant location with fantastic views."
We stayed at Casa Maya for two weeks for 2 weeks in July/August 2013 and combined our stay with 2 nights in Rome and 2 nights in Naples, both just a few hours drive away.
The house is located on it's own hill between two villages giving beatiful views of the surrounding hills and mountains. The house seemed larger than shown in the pictures with all the rooms of a good size and well fitted. The large patio was quiet and a great sunspot, the pool providing a welcome cooling dip.
We found plenty of local restaurants and shops and although we didn't speak Italian the locals were very friendly and helpful.
Being located between the mountains and coast we were able to find a variety of activities from caves to mountain tops and from sandy beaches to rocky coves.
We enjoyed our stay and have lots of great memories.

"the most stunning location imaginable"
We stayed for just under a week in this secluded and peaceful hilltop house and had a full dose of both fun and relaxation every day. The house has stunning views in all directions which make barbecues and drinks on the terrace all the more exquisite, plus the location allows a day to be spent partly by the sea and partly walking in the mountains without spending more than an hour in the car in total. Surrounding villages unspoilt and un-touristy, with excellent simple local food. Highly recommended all round.
