Villa Maieletta sits in rolling hills with the dramatic backdrop of the Maiella Mountain range in the Maiella National Park. The boutique Villa is on a quiet country lane close to the historic hill-top town of Palombaro, whose distant church bells provide an evocative reminder of past times. Our unrivalled views of the Abruzzo landscape, stunning sunsets and night skies will remain in your memory for a long time. Come and live the Italian life. Experience and enjoy the rhythms of rural life that surround us from the porchetta van and cafe culture to events celebrating the olive and grape harvests. The festa month of August has an array of unique activities that include the wild boar festival in Pennapiedimonte, Green Fair in Fara San Martino, the Beer Festival in Limiti (1km down the road) and musical events that extend into September in historic Lanciano. Watch the fascinating array of fireflies that twinkle all around you after dark from April to June. Join us for a special olive picking holiday in November; pick your own olives and return home with the oil from the fruits of your labours. Retire to your apartment to relax and rest in a luxurious environment of classic Italian splendour. We are situated amidst great cycling and motorcycling country, where cars are a rare sight on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as two-wheeled transport takes to the roads and tracks in the area. The Giro D'Italia frequently visits the area and the Tirreno-Adriatico passes through Guardiagrele 15 minutes away. Local drivers are particularly considerate to cyclists, recognising the prominence of the sport in Italy. We offer guided cycle and motorcycle tours, indoor parking for guests on two wheels and mountain bikes for the use of guests. Road cycles can be hired nearby. On the 3rd weekend in June, the Maiella Fiat 500 rally comes our way, and 60 of these iconic Italian cars of the 1960s descend on the historic hill-top town of Casoli. Come on the first weekend in July and enjoy the annual Maiella mountain walk, a 5 hour trek across the peaks above us that's sponsored by local pasta makers, De Cecco. If music's your preference, the internationally-renowned Pescara Jazz festival in mid-July every year, is a short drive away. Beautiful Italian buildings are to be found in nearby towns and villages.Our location makes it easy for you to be in the mountains in the morning, on the beach in the afternoon, and dine in the countryside under the stars. The Villa is an ideal retreat for couples, those who love the outdoor life and aficionados of architecture and history. We're perfect for your honeymoon hideaway or a romantic short break, too!More

About the neighbourhood
Lanciano is 25 minutes from our nearest town, Palombaro, a hill-top settlement of only 1,131 inhabitants, which sits 536 metres above sea level. It has spectacular views and is at the foot of the 2,252 meter high Martellese Mountain, one of the highest in the Maiella range. Palombaro was the Italian location for the 2011 film, “Lords of London,” featuring Ray Winstone. The beautiful church of the Assumption, first built in 1561,appears in the wedding scene. The valley walls of Palombaro are host to numerous caves. The Cave (Grotta) of St. Angelo can be found just a few kilometres away inside the remains of a medieval church, whilst the amazing Grotta del Cavallone, reached by cable car and complete with stalactites, is also nearby. It is only 45 minutes to the ski resorts of Passo L...
How to get there
