Description

Situated just 7 min walk from the sleepy village of Serramonacesca right on the edge of the National Park (della Majella) this converted farmhouse offers tranquility and escapism. Relax on the large south facing terrace with the sun all day and take in the amazing views, walk through our olive grove down to a small river on the edge of our property and through the surrounding countryside. There is much to do just a short drive away, during both the Summer and Winter, from the wonderful sandy Italian beeches on the Adriatic, relax in the natural hot springs in the hills or go skiiing in the mountains. Sleeps 7 comfortably but can take up to 13 if both Poolhouse and Log Cabin (hired separately) is used. The farmhouse is not just a "Buy to Let" but has been furnished as our house to retire to in a few years

We have two log cabins, the Poolhouse that can be used as an "emergency" bedroom (with shower and washbasin) to the farm, and a larger Log Cabin on extremity

Location description from owner

The Abruzzo region

Serramonacesca is roughly on the same latitude as Rome, so has good weather generally all year round, but by end of September when the sun goes down, the air gets a little chilly as we are about 900 ft up. When people think of Italy they often think of Toscana (Tuscany) but few have discovered the amazing, rugged countryside of Abruzzo - round every corner or mountain is a different terrain. Some of the best views in Italy - in my view much better than Tuscany, and the sandy beaches of the Adriaticare fantastic - and safe - and not over crowded re South France

Pescara

Serramoncesca is a quiet sleepy village ideally situated for the weather for most of the year, for totally quiet holidays (here) or the night life (Pescara, Chieti etc. only a few minutes by car), for walking/bike, rock climbing holidays, and ofcourse for beach holidays, for skiing holidays or just relax in our spacious grounds or on the terrace, good for both summer and winter (not the terrace!) holidays. The nearby mountain range is 2700 metres and this region was a extra practise area for the recent Turin (Torino) winter Olympics. Chair lift open in summer as well as winter. There are two local restaurants very good, very cheap. And if you fancy a visit to Rome - it is only 1.5 hours by car - so a good day trip if you leave early!<

Our house is situated right on the edge of the National Park and adjacent to a small river. There are numerous picturesque villages around. From our land one can walk along the river to the sea at Pescara (if you are feeling really energetic!) but 10 minutes walk from Serramonacesa is a leafy glade where one can walk alongside a small river with some wonderful small waterfalls - and in the summer one can even get wet under them!! Lovely for picnics. Serramonacesca has two well equipped village shops, two bars , a doctor and pharmacy.. A car is really necessary, but a bus leaves the village every hour for surrounding areas. About 30 minute drive is a superb gorge one can walk through (providing you have a head for heights) again with magnificent views. Tennis is available together with basketball/netball/5aside football pitch

“Very out of the way, Fabulous pool, OK accomodation”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2013

The villa is down a quiet gravel track a good 10 minutes walk from a small village. It's approximately an hour's drive from Pescara (large-ish seaside town) and half an hour from other towns with lots of restaurants. We drove from Rome (approx 2- 2 1/2 hours on good roads). The outside space is absolutely fantastic, with a large pool and an outside table tennis table - great with young teenagers! The pool needed serious (1-2 hours) cleaning when we arrived, but the owner stated this was due to high winds (mmm...). The inside of the house was OK - again we spent a couple of hours vacuuming and cleaning - primarily spider webs. It was NOT dirty - just looked like it hadn't been done for a few wees. The kitchen was fine, the lounge was excellent with a brilliant surround sound (again, great for teenagers, with a very good DVD selection), and the dining room with a motorised roll-up door was spectacular with great views. The bathrooms were fine, and the bedrooms OK. There was a little too much of the owners (?) bedding (?) on view piled by the wardrobe and on top of the wardrobes for my liking - but this was not a show-stopper in any way. The upstairs balcony was again a dream - with a large dining table and views to die-for. All in all I would return. We normally holiday in somewhat similar properties in Tuscany, and this is more off the beaten track - and everywhere around is far less touristy. That has positives and negatives. The price reflects this and if you want a quiet location, are happy to drive everywhere, then give it a try. We "hedge" by taking 1 week in one rental another elsewhere, which is what we did this time too.

We have a cleaner come before and after a booking but spiders webs are a problem in the country remove them and they are back in a day! Also the pool is cleaned every week, however can get very high winds occasionally that can cause a lot of leaves to be blown in. There are two auto cleaners for the pool. Not sure re comment re bedding - there should have been none left out - maybe it was the bedding covers. We do use this as our home also when guests are not present.
