About Susanne Metzger
When I am not in Decontra, I work as a garden designer in London. My husband and I met in Italy in the '80s when we both worked in Milan. We always knew that once our children were grown, we would return to Italy. Because we both love walking in the mountains, Abruzzo, was a perfect choice.
Susanne Metzger purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Susanne Metzger chose Caramanico Terme
We first saw this old abandoned farmhouse in 2006 (see our website Majella Mountain Escape for pictures of the original house), although, it took us five years to convince the owners (a brother and sister who'd emigrated to Australia in the late '50s) to sell it. We knew immediately that this was the place for us. The views were so beautiful from the terrace that we immediately saw the potential to let those views into the house by opening it out completely.
What makes this Apartment unique
The beauty of this house is, above all, its views, combined with the incredible serenity of Decontra, and its access to nature: you could spend a week walking many different routes from the house, through an incredible variety of landscapes, environments, flora and fauna, down through beautiful gorges and up through beautiful beech glades to high mountain meadows and the peaks of the Majella. And yet the real world is conveniently at hand - two hours by car to Rome, less than an hour to beautiful Adriatic beaches, and just 40 minutes to the Pescara airport or train station, with connections to all major European destinations.
