A fabulous well equipped spacious villa with amazing views. A beautiful pool and pergola area bordered by lavender and oleander with a magnificent backdrop of the Gran Sasso mountains and local hilltop villages and even a glimpse of the sea. The villa is set in an unspoilt rural area with a lack of foreign tourists making visits to the nearby restaurants a more interesting experience mingling with the locals. A trip into the mountains is well worth it for even more spectacular scenery as is exploring the small villages with their narrow steep cobbled streets. And not to be missed is a visit to the seaside for a dip into the warm waters.
Casa del Colle is a wonderful relaxing place to spend a holiday with every detail catered for and owners who go beyond the call of duty to make your holiday the best. You cannot fail but to return home completely recharged.
We were two families of 5 (6 children between 4 and 10) who stayed in this amazing house. There was plenty of room for all of us and we used the beautiful and well maintained pool every day. The house is so spacious, modern, clean and well kept that it felt like we were at a resort. No other place came close after we left Penne, so I would recommend you end your trip at this place. We can't wait to book again!
This superb villa is set in beautiful hills 3 miles from Penne. The views are magnificent with snow capped mountains in two directions and hill top Penne looking East. It is quiet and off the main tourist track and gives a more authentic view of Italy at its best. Lovely warm Adriatic waters are within a 45min drive with lovely sandy beaches near to Pescara. The villa itself is superbly equipped with the best (14 metre) pool that I've experienced at villas on the continent. The villa has electric shutters over all windows and doors to help security and keeping the villa cool. Marble floors are throughout and we didn't even touch the games room with pool table and table football. The kitchen is very well equipped too with everything you will need and there is also basic foodstuffs there with herbs and some other staples. For a peaceful luxury retreat watching each morning and evening swifts, house martins and swallows as they dip into the swimming pool, it is unbeatable.
Stayed here or two weeks June 2017. Exactly what a holiday should be like. Fabulous well thought out luxury villa with everything you could possibly want. Most idyllic location for wide spread spectacular views of snow capped mountains to the Adriatic Sea interspread with the hilltop towns including the lovely Penne and the lake. We had excellent weather throughout the fortnight. This is a less tourist packed area which gives a true flavour of rural Italy. We had a local chef come and cook a meal for us at the villa one eve where we had local excellent Abruzzio wines with endless courses of fine Italian cuisine. Highly recommended.

With wide vistas incorporating both the Adriatic and the Gran Sasso mountain this villa provides sophisticated living in a rural idyll. The house is beautifully equipped for all ages, an excellent base for a family gathering. The produce grown locally is plentiful, delicious and great value, local restaurants are good too.
The attractions of the pool and shaded seating area were such that we visited less of the surrounding area than we'd planned. There is a great deal to enjoy, whether cycling or walking, visiting quaint ancient towns perched on hills, or museums and wineries. A perfect reason to come again!
