About the home
This is a real seaside paradise.
Sandy beaches with restaurants, bars and cafes line the shore. Ice cream palours are on the doorstep. A flat promenade stretches for miles in each direction with a car-free cycle route on the seafront and beyond. Fresh fish is available daily from sea front stalls (out of peak season) along with markets selling locally produced food and tourist gifts of every description. This is also a great base from which to research the area if you are looking to buy property.

Further details indoors:
A great (and safe) way to get around is by bike. These can be hired very cheaply in season from a shop 5 minutes from the apartment.
Fresh fish is avialable daily from the fishermen who still work from traditional boats on this coast.
There are several markets to find bargins including a Tuesday local produce market when all the small holders sell their wares and the tourist markets in the evenings.
Further details outdoors:
A modern shopping arcade is 15 minutes walk away incorporating amusement arcade and cinema. There is also a child friendly fun fare in the same place. When you have had enough of the beachfront, cycle or take bus into Pescara city for cosmopolitan shopping, café society and night life.
If architecture, culture, natural beauty or walking are more your scene, dont miss the exquisite village of Silvi Paese at the top of the hill outside Montesilvano. This is just one of just a few to sample in the region. The contrast to beach life is notable. Up in the villages the pace of life is very slow, its quiet and peaceful, yet people are equally friendly - not to be missed!
If you want explore further, take a car inland to the hills and then the famous Gran Sasso mountains and Majella National Park. Spectacular in summer for their wildlife, scenery and roman archaeology - in winter it is possible to drive up and ski within an hour’s journey of the apartment. The roads are generally good quality with reasonably priced autostrada to take you quickly to your destination.
The Marche / Abruzzo / Abruzzo region
Abbruzo is reletively unused by British holiday makers. However it is a firm favourite with the Italians as any look at the beach economy will show. It is warm and sunny in the region most of the year with temperatures reaching more than 30 C in the summer months.
As well as the seaside, this region is famous for its mountains and the ancient sheep migrations across them. These tracks are now used by skiers but the history is evident everywhere and is retained in the wonderful lamb dishes.
The Pescara / Montesilvano area
In high season you will probably be seeking the beach for rest and relaxation but the area has other charms that are best enjoyed in spring or autumn when it not quite so hot. The area is famous for its flora and fauna so walking, cycling or horse riding in the local hills or either of the TWO national parks nearby are reccomended.
Easter festivals in the area are excellent, Chieti is reccommended and only a bus ride away.
For serious sightseers, the apartment is a good strategic base being 2½ hours by coach from Rome, 4 hours ferry from the Dalmatian Coast (Split in Croatia) Slovenia and the rest of Eastern Europe. It is central so you can travel up north to Bologna, Venice, the lakes etc. or further south to Naples, Sorrento and Sicily. Regional trains are a joy, as an alternative to road travel. However, you might need a longer holiday to fit everything in…

I stayed here in Montesilvano for 3 months from 1st Feb to 9th May 2012 taking the flat on a long term holiday let. It was brilliant, I saw the seasons changing literally from snow to glorious sunshine every day. The flat is very comfortable and has everything you need. The view from the flat has to be seen to be believed! It is wonderful and if you wake early, catch the sunrise .... amazing !! The location is absolutely perfect, right on the beach and excellent bus services to Pescara and the airport and also in the other direction. The trains are lovely too, very comfortable. In season, there are plenty of ice cream bars, cafes and restuarants to choose from and Pescara is not far away. I recommend an apertif early evening in Pescara, the atmosphere is very cosmopolitan. I spent 3 months trying to improve my language skills and thoroughly enjoyed myself and met some wonderful italians. I am definitely going again, it is just a matter of when! ..Excellent - Judy Maragna
