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 12m 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 safe,sandy Italian beaches on the Adriatic, relax in the natural hot springs in the hills or go skiing in the mountains. Sleeps 7 comfortably but can take up to 13 if both Poolhouse and Log Cabin (hired separately) is used.

Relax on the large south facing 12m 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 safe,sandy Italian beaches on the Adriatic, relax in the natural hot springs in the hills or go skiing 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 of our land giving complete privacy both to people in the farmhouse and also the cabin. The cabin has a separate bathroom, kitchen and cathedral lounge with a 2m terrace, The bedroom (sleeps 2-4) is in apex of roof. The Log Cabin enjoys astounding views of village and surrounding mountains. Not possible to park car adjacent to cabin, requires a short walk up a hill. Log Cabin available to rent separately for large groups & is not included in pricing. All details on website here relate to the farmhouse only.More

Savoured the charm of a rustic Italian holiday in an olive grove next to a gentle river. All rooms were well appointed and charming, with some bare stone walls. Spacious, cool when it's hot and warm enough when cool outside. Terrific views, walks and rides...More

About the neighbourhood
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 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...
How to get there
Fly to Pescara (RyanAir) 25 min from airport or to Rome under 2 hrs Local buses run every hour All major car hire companies at airports Local cheap taxis available. Autostrade to within 15 minutes away (both from Rome and North & South). Very good road access to Serramonacesca. More explicit directions sent on booking
