Atina house description
This charming 400 year old house is the first in a row of five stone houses, off the main road, with the Abruzzo Mountains as your backdrop . The fully equipped open-plan kitchen leads out into a cosy living area with fireplace and Sky TV. The original vaulted ceilings prove for excellent insulation, keeping the place refreshingly cool in the summer. The kitchen is carefully decorated in unique charming country décor and features a hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and everything you’ll need for an evening meal. The ground floor boasts a recently renovated large bathroom which includes a hydro-massage tub for 2 people. A washing machine room completes this floor.
Spacious 3 storey country home: The first floor includes two spacious connected bedrooms – one with a double bed, another with 2 single beds. This floor also includes a study and a bathroom with toilet and multi jet shower. The second floor features two more separate bedrooms and a third bathroom with bath, toilet and bidet. Outside there is a small patio area and parking.
The house is an ideal base for guests who want to enjoy breathtaking views with stunning sunsets along with outstanding idyllic natural landscapes in a peaceful rural setting on the edge of the nearby Abruzzo Natural Park.
There's plenty to do in the area: Guests of this farm house accommodation can fill their itinerary with plenty of area attractions and activities. Because of its positioning, most places of interest are within easy access – such as, Cassino (Montecassino Abbey), the Etruscan towns of Atina and Sora - both built before Rome
For daytrips Rome, Naples, Pompei, Vesuvis, Capri and the Amalfi Coast can be done. The Abruzzo National Park is on your doorstep.
A ten minute walk will take you to the nearest restaurant, mini market, chemist and local bar - English is widely spoken in this area. In the nearby picturesque village of Casalattico there is a traditional pizzeria.
A fifty minute drive takes you to the beautiful beaches of Gaeta and Sperlonga with its amazing fish restaurants. Ferries can be taken to the lesser known islands of Ponza or Ventotenne, well worth a visit.
The local Etruscan town of Atina is a short drive away, so guests
Your Home-Away-From-Home In Italy!: This 400 year old traditional stone house is situated in the small hamlet of Largo Vallone in a beautiful mountainous area of undiscovered Italy. It is conveniently situated only 30 minutes from the main Rome/Naples A1 Autostrada. The beautiful hidden valley, combines traditional mountain tranquillity and/or is ideally situated for exploring the immediate area or day trips. A ten minute drive from the house takes you to two very well equipped public outdoor swimming pools. There is a water park just before Cassino.

Pure R & R - a fabulous couples escape
Pure R & R - a fabulous couples escape
We absolutely loved our time at the beautifully restored old home. The setteing is full of character and history. It was the perfect place for a romantic retreat and escape from the world. Easy access to the national park and the coast. If quiet serenity and lovely surroundings is what you seek, this is the place for you. Can't wait to go back.

As an avid cyclist and a frequent visitor to Italy, I was delightfuly surprised to find this beautiful, imexpensive part of Italy. This wonderful, spacious and well equipped house is situated in a beautiful, peaceful location surrounded by mountains with views of the snow covered peaks of Parco Nazional d'Abruzzo, and in close proximity to the historic Abbey at Monte Casino. I spent 10 days riding around here and every day was a new adventure, and not a tourist bus to be seen........a cyclists paradise. At the end of the day there was always a warm welcome at "Failte" where the rest of the world seemed a million miles away. If you want to experience real Italy you will find it here, and love it.

Owner response: Hi Hugo, just read your review and am so glad you enjoyed both the cycling and the house! In the 10 days that you were here, you only scraped the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering all the amazing cycling routes that are around here! So hope to see you next year and I'll have those routes ready for you! All the best, Miriam
We stayed here in May 2009 for one week, The views from the bedroom were so nice to wake up to. We ate in the local restaurants which served excellent home made food and washed down with local wine, The house is in an ideal location, within walking distance to local shops, chemists and of course restaurants & bars. The house makes you feel instantly relaxed and at ease, just right to recharge your batteries and enjoy they holiday.
