On the ground floor, there is a large kitchen with long, extendable dining table, which can easily seat 10 people. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with fridge freezer, oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave and many cooking utensils. Enjoy amazing views from the two large windows.

There is also a separate accommodation, with living room/corner kitchen, sofa bed and shower room. This is ideal for older children who wish to have privacy, or if you are travelling as a set of friends. The area is also useful for preparing food to eat on the patio. The large covered patio has amazing views of both mountain ranges in Abruzzo, and of the nearby hills and the local town of Castilenti. It is a great spot for an early morning espresso, or eating your evening meal al fresco, whilst watching the sun setting over the mountains. From the patio, you can enjoy a dip in the plunge pool, whilst enjoying the views. There is around 7,000 sqm of garden, mostly grass, with olive trees and fruit trees. The land is gently sloping and is a great area for children to play safely, whilst you enjoy a glass of local Montepulciano wine on one of the many sun loungers.

Casa Girasole has been our holiday home since 2004, and in that time we have restored it and equipped it with all the items necessary to enjoy a very comfortable holiday. We have entertained many friends and family at the house, and it is great location for a relaxing dinner party, as well as a romantic hideaway. Having spent many weeks each year there, we have learnt the best places to shop, to eat and to visit. Our information folder passes on all this knowledge to our guests. We have decided to rent out Casa Girasole as we feel it is such a shame to leave it empty when we aren't there, and we want our guests to enjoy it as much as we do.

Please note that the plunge pool is open from the end of May until the beginning of October.

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 extensive 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 hour's drive from Casa Girasole, '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.

Marciano

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 Girasole, in the province of Teramo, is close to the medieval village of Castilenti.

This is a wine region, famous for Montepulciano and Trebbiano wines. After a short drive, you will reach an award-winning cantina, where you can sample and buy wine made from native vines covering the local hills. In the many local restaurants, you can enjoy freshly prepared, local produce, at fantastic value for money.

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 Girasole, the first of Abruzzo's National Parks can be reached, where Mariscano brown bears, Apennine wolves and chamois all reside. Skiing, cross-country skiing, canoeing, cycling and hiking can all be enjoyed here.

On the coast, the long sandy beaches of Pineto and Pescara can be found, 30km from Casa Girasole. 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.
