Villa Casale - The house's name comes from the location on Via del Casale in Valle S. Giovanni, a village near Teramo in the Abruzzo Region of central Italy. The Adriatic is ~17 miles away. Rome can be reached ~2 hours. Nearby is the Pescara airport.
Casale is an independent structure on a short alley off the main piazza. This provides serenity when desired while allowing frequent contact with the locals. There is a large patio with an unobstructed panoramic view of Valle Soprana (no known relation to Tony Soprano!). La Valle has a church with daily masses, bar, grocery store (alimentari), fruit and vegetable store (fruttivendolo), post office (Ufficio Postale), and hardware store (ferramenta). Many restaurants are nearby, one within walking distance.
