Apartment 2 - The Arches
Our home is a renovated farmhouse nestled in the beautiful unspoilt Valley of the Piomba, in the heart of Abruzzo. A fantastic house with a pool in a stunning location with amazing scenery, located in what we think is nowadays the best part of Italy. Surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cherry orchards, it feels a million miles away from civilisation, peaceful, quiet and relaxing, with stunning views all around.
Parts of the building date back at least 300 years, with the oldest parts constructed from local stone and hand made bricks. The whole has been rebuilt or fully refurbished to a very high standard.
There are two large ground floor, self-catering apartments, this one ' The Arches' and 'Casa di Pietre' - 85250. Both are fully furnished and equiped to a high standard, each with 1 double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom (this can also be set as a double or tripple bedded room on request), lounges, kitchens, dining rooms, bathroom and private terraces and all the facilities a family needs to enjoy a relaxing stay, whether it's for a couple of nights, a week or two or even longer.
For stays of 3 nights or more, included in the price we offer a welcome pack of basic provisions, certainly enough to get you through breakfast on your first morning. In addition ( for stays of 3 nights or more), we also provide a welcome supper meal on your day of arrival to give your designated cook time to get their bearings before having to shop or cook.
There is a five meter diameter swimming pool, ideal for a splash about and at only 1.2meters depth safe for all the family's supervised bathing. There is ample parking. An on site wood fired Pizza oven and Barbeque. Pool side changing and toilet facilities. There are gardens to hide in and the surrounding countryside is a haven for a casual stroll or serious walkers.
Where are we? Just to the north east of Citta S.Angelo a pretty, ancient town about 10 miles to the north of Pescara. The fabulous sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast at Silvi Marina and Pineto are 4 miles away, just 10-15 minutes from the house. The shallow, warm waters of the Adriatic are ideal for safe family bathing.
The locals are friendly and outgoing, the food and wine are fantastic with plenty of good restaurants nearby. Loads to do and see, Snow capped mountains, vineyards, olive groves and beaches that stretch for miles, bustling markets, quaint hilltop towns and villages, historic sites, and if you ever need 'civilization' Pescara has all you could ever need!
The 5m circular pool is 1.2m deep and great fun for all the family, it's use is shared with our other apartment ( Casa di Pietre). The pool is NOT security fenced
The BBQ and Pizza Oven next to the pool are available for use at any time (wood provided)
