Property description

Villa Collecimino is a spacious, self-catering, detached property with plunge pool, located in 3.5 acres of orchards, olive groves and agricultural land on top of a hill 550 metres above sea-level, with stunning panoramic views of the Appennine mountains on one side and the Adriatic sea on the other. Both apartments have terraces where you can dine, sunbathe or just enjoy the beautiful views of Abruzzo. It is just 40 minutes from Pescara airport, 30 minutes from the beaches and 40 minutes from the mountains. The villa has two separate self contained apartments each with their own private entrance. One apartment has two bedrooms - one double, one twin and can sleep two more on comfortable sofa beds in the lounge area. The second apartment has one double bedroom and can sleep two more in the open plan living area on comfortable sofa beds. The apartments can also be rented together - ideal for a holiday with extended family or with groups of friends. Please see our own website for more details. Guests are welcome to make use of the gardens and grounds surrounding the property. We have a Scandinavian Plunge Pool (6x4m) and a BBQ for all guests to use.

Villa Collecimino: Ideal for rest and relaxation, Villa Collecimino is located in 3.5 acres of orchards, olive groves and agricultural land. It is situated 550 metres above sea-level in a small hamlet which has regular visits from a mobile baker, butcher, and fishmonger. There is a large supermarket and a range of shops just a 10 minute drive away in Cesi. 15 minute drive from the historic medieval towns of Penne and Castiglione MR. There are many wonderful places to eat locally - 5 minutes' walk from an 'agriturismo' offering delicious meals from home-grown produce, and a short drive from many other restaurants as well as the best seafood restaurant we have ever visited.

Attractions and Excursions: The Gran Sasso and Majella National Parks are just a short drive away. You can enjoy majestic mountain scenery with a wide variety of flora and fauna, and, if you are lucky, you may spot a wild bear, wolf or chamois. On the edge of the National Park is Castelli, a beautiful medieval town nestled in the mountains, renowned for its hand-painted ceramics. (There are many interesting medieval hilltop towns and villages in the area.) In the other direction, just 30-40 minutes from our villa, are the pine-fringed, clean sandy beaches of the Adriatic, that stretch for more than 15 miles. Other attractions include golf, winter sports, and, if you feel the need for some pampering, you could try one of Abruzzo’s thermal spas - the waters in this area are renowned for their healing and detoxifying properties.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have lived in Newhaven, East Sussex on the south coast of the UK, since 1997. We love views - our house in Newhaven is perched on top of a hill with views right out to sea - we can see the ships in the shipping lanes plus great views of the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry every time it comes in and all the boats going in and out of the marina. We run a small translation business from home - my husband Marek is a linguist and I do all the admin, finances and day to day running of the business. In our spare time - I sing at weddings, funerals and with a chamber choir and Marek likes to dance - 'strictly ballroom' style.

Why the Owner Chose Castiglione Messer Raimondo:
We went to Italy in 2004 looking for a property and stumbled upon this one on our 2nd day. We fell in love with it and its extraordinary and stunning location and there was no looking back......

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Stunning location, stunning views of both the Apennine mountains in one direction and the Adriatic sea in the other. Both apartments have great views. It is also very peaceful and unspoilt.
