You’ll have the apartment to yourself.
Ground-floor apartment in the converted stable of an 18th-century farmhouse on a hill near the sea. Sleeps up to 6 people (2 single beds, 2 armchair beds, 1 sofa bed). Kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom; patio, garden, barbecue and secure parking. Less than 5 minutes from the beach by car, about 45 from the mountains, 20 from Pescara airport and 2 or 3 hours from those of Rome.

The space
The apartment stands on a hill which overlooks the sea amid vineyards & olive groves in small hamlet now becoming a holiday area because it is near the beach. It has old wooden doors, brick arches and vaulted ceilings, and has been carefully restored in a simple, rustic, open-plan style to respect the original structure of the building. Sleeps up to 6 people (2 single beds, 2 armchair beds, 1 sofa bed). The bedroom is separated from the living room at night by screens. The living room has a large dining table with seating for 8 people. There is a big bathroom with washbasin, bath, shower, toilet and bidet; a small kitchen with sink, draining rack, gas hob, cooker hood, microwave oven and fridge-freezer. A child's cot and high chair are available. Outside is a sheltered seating area looking on to the back garden, with a barbecue and secure parking. No smoking in the apartment please and we regret that we do not accept pets.

Guest access
You will have at your disposal the whole apartment as here described, the patio, the back garden, the barbecue and the parking area. In addition to the ground-floor flat we also let a converted barn at the bottom of the garden. That too can also be seen on this website.

Other things to note
The apartment lies midway between the popular seaside resort of Francavilla and the medieval port of Ortona, with its Aragonese castle, promenade overlooking the port and cathedral reputed to house the remains of St Thomas the Apostle. Here too is the Enoteca Regionale where you can taste and buy a wide range of Abruzzese wines, or sit over an aperitif and antipasti before dining in one of the excellent seafood restaurants. There are plenty of shops (butchers, bakers, confectioners, fishmongers, etc.), and supermarkets, bars, restaurants, banks, post offices, petrol stations, some a short walk away, all in easy reach by car. There is an 18-hole golf course at Miglianico, just 4 miles away, and skiing in the winter at Passo Lanciano, 25 miles from the house.

Location

Ortona, Abruzzo (Province of Chieti ), Italy

Abruzzo is a region of outstanding natural beauty: sandy beaches, green fields and woods, vineyards, olive groves, steep-sided valleys and towering mountain ranges. It has 3 national parks and one regional park, protecting no less than 30% of the region as a whole, and is home to falcons, eagles, wolves, bears, wild boar and chamois. in the mountains are rushing torrents, picturesque lakes and caverns filled with stalactites and stalagmites. Abruzzo is also a land of ancient hill-towns, imposing castles, beautiful medieval abbeys and churches, and significant Roman remains. Its people have preserved many colourful local traditions, and every year each town or village holds its own traditional festival. They have a great tradition of food and wine too, based on simple, natural ingredients. You can eat well and often inexpensively in its many fine, family-run restaurants. So there is something here for everyone, and the best thing of all is that most of it is still relatively undiscovered.
