Location description from owner

The Abruzzo region

Abruzzo is known as the 'green region of Europe', with over a third of it's surface protected. In the 4 national parks, the uncontaminated landscape goes from excessive to majestic. At 2912m, Corno Grande, in the Gran Sasso range, is the highest of the Abruzzo mountains. There are 17 ski resorts in the region and the slopes are said to be central Italy's finest. The close network of regional and state nature reserves ensure that the natural world of Abruzzo is well-protected and can be enjoyed by sport and nature lovers.

There are 133km of golden beaches, creeks and cliffs, running along a coast lined with pinewoods, dotted with towns and backed by green hills. It is the only stretch of European coastline to have 7 seaside resorts in the same province – Teramo – all awarded the blue flag, for clean bathing water. The wide sandy beaches, shallow water and amenities make it ideal for children. Within an hours drive from Casa Bianca, 'Onda Blu', central Italy's biggest waterpark, provides a full and entertaining day out for all the family.

All in all, Abruzzo has something for everyone: - nature, mountains, beach, gastronomy, art, architecture, local crafts, museums, folklore, sport and above all, DIVERSITY.

In addition to all this, Rome can be reached in about 2 1/2 hours by car. Here, you can experience a spectacular day out, soaking up the culture, history and art, buying designer clothes in the huge array of fantastic shops, or simply enjoying the atmosphere of one of Europe's most cosmopolitan and stylish cities.

Castilenti

Whatever the season or weather, there is always something to do and see in this area, making it an ALL YEAR ROUND holiday destination. Casa Bianca, in the province of Teramo, sits between the 2 medieval villages of Castilenti and Elice. Local shops, bars, restaurants, a swimming pool and health farm are all within walking distance.

This is a wine region, famous for Montepulciano and Trebbiano wines. After a 5 minute drive, you will reach an award-winning cantina, where you can sample and buy wine made from our vines, as well as the vineyards covering the local hills. In the many local restaurants, you can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce, at fantastic value for money. The village of Casa Bianca is well-known for it's home-produced 'arrosticini', which are a local, traditional delicacy. The local people come from miles around to enjoy them.

Only 20-30 minutes drive away, larger towns are situated, such as Atri, Penne and Loreto Aprutino. All the towns and villages host festivals, where you have the opportunity to sample local wine and food specialities, listen to a diverse variety of music and enjoy spectacular firework displays. The area's artistic and architectural heritage offers a wide section of precious works of art, castles and churches, spread right across the region.

Atri and Penne are surrounded by nature reserves, including a WWF educational centre. The area within and around Penne Lake is home to about 160 species of birds and many types of fish. Within an hour of Casa Bianca, the first of Abruzzo's National Parks can be reached, where Marsicano brown bears, Apennine wolves and chamois all reside. Ski-ing, cross-country ski-ing, canoeing, cycling and hiking can all be enjoyed here.

In the other direction, the long sandy beaches of Pineto and Pescara can be found, 30km from Casa Bianca. Pescara boasts many fine restaurants and shops, as well as the largest tourist harbour on the Adriatic. Daily boat trips depart from here. Windsurfing, fishing, diving and sailing are easily available. Pescara provides good nightlife, including many music festivals. The warm and friendly atmosphere makes it appealing to people of all ages. Pineto is known for the shady pinewoods which separate the beach from the town. It is a modern and fascinating beach area, ideal for those who love the calm of another era.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2012

We stayed at Casa Bianca with our two year old and had a very relaxing time. We wanted to get to know the area and found Tracy and Pete (the owners) extremely friendly and helpful in all ways. The beach is only 25 minutes away and our two year old loved it as the main holiday season was over and so the beaches were deserted but there were still lots of the trampolines and outside toys still there for him to play on. The weather at this time of year was great for a young child. The drive from Rome was easy (we had to fly into Rome rather than Pescara) and we found the property easily from the directions even though there was an enormous rain storm and it was dark!! The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the villages and near enough to the beach if you want a dip! This is definitely a place to relax in as there are very few things in the immediate vicinity and you definitely need a car. I would definitely recommend this to people who want a basic clean base from which to explore the area and Tracy and Pete are a wealth of information and are always glad to help.

“A perfect family holiday”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2012

As long as you have a car you could not have a better family holiday. The accommodation is perfect and has everything you could need. There is even a great courtyard for sitting out, eating out and playing footaball or tennis. The wander down to the local village shop gives you the true Itailan experience. Within an hour you can be in the most amazing mountains in Europe, with no tourism and plenty of hillwalking opportunities, waterfalls, wildlife and snow even in May. Our boys love it and this will be the 3rd year we have returned. After a few days in Abruzzo mountains, travel down the coast south for some time at the beaches.

“Lovely place to stay in an unspoiled part of Italy”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

This was a great base from which to explore Abruzzo. Centrally located and with every convenience. The accomodation was very well appointed and comfortable. We had a great stay and were made very welcome by the owners. The cooking facilities were excellent and the owners were on hand to give advice and pointers on the best palces to visit and to shop.

“Loved this peaceful, well equipped, stunning location.”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

We had a fabulous stay at Casa Bianca. The property is extremely well looked after, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped - the only thing missing is a dishwasher. it was fabulous to have breakfast outside in the patio at the side of the property and dinner in the large courtyard at the front. Loads of space inside and out. The owners Tracey and Pete were extremely pleasant and not pushy and enormously helpful with ample written information about the local area of things to do, places to eat, all of which were superb, and where to buy the local wine (Montepulciano and Trebianno, which was excellent and very cheap! It is a very relaxing place to go to with good access, with a car, to beaches, shops etc. Don't recommend the drive from Rome, if possible fly to Pescara it is much nearer.

“Very comfortable apartment with lovely hosts in very scenic area”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

We have been 5 times and have had some exceptional holidays. The apartment is very clean and spacious and Tracy and Pete are very accomodating. The sea, the mountains and many medeival towns and villages scattered about this beautiful area are all within reach. Numerous local restaurants in the area serve good food at very reasonable prices. Last but not least, San Lorenzo vinyard produces very good wine locally from the cheapest to the very expensive if you want to splash out. Casa Bianca is highly recommended.

“A wonderful location for so much...”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2012

..to sightsee, house hunt, ski or beach all in the same day. This location is central to them all and Casa Bianca is a charming accommodation with everything you want, even Stella the dog to take you for walks! Comfortable and spacious with Tracey on hand if need her, but also lots of information in the apartment. We enjoyed the local area, so much we actually now live nearby and continue to discover more and more about the beauty of the place.
