What an Amazing Place to Relax and Enjoy Italy!
We came here after spending several 'big city' days (Barcelona & Rome), and this was exactly what we needed! Unbeatable views, fabulous outdoor sitting area, full kitchen, pool, books, puzzles, games - what more could you need? Beautiful beaches are about a 25-minute drive, and you can walk to the charming town of Palmoli in about 20-minutes. The hosts provide an extensive list of activities, beaches, and restaurants. We miss it already!
Lovely house and pool with a fantastic view
The house was comfortable and accommodate our grown family of 7 very nicely. The view at all times of the day was lovely. The surrounding villages are a little quieter than expected, but the sea was not far away. This was a great place to relax and get over jet lag before tackling Rome.
Wow wow wow. This place is AMAZING. So sad we didn't stay longer! Gorgeous views--you can't stop staring at the rolling hills, lavender and butterflies everywhere. The house is so functional and beautiful and comfortable. I can't say enough good things about this house--we will DEFINITELY be back.
Thank you so much. I am so happy that others also appreciate the place I love. You are most welcome back.
Amazing Views & Accommodations in Beautiful Abruzzo Villa
Where should I begin? This place was spectacular - I wish I could award more than 5 stars. We wanted a nice, peaceful location in rural Italy to relax a bit during our 2 week honeymoon, and this was exactly the spot we had in mind. Gunilla (the owner) was very responsive and helpful in providing advice on activities in Abruzzo, and Craig was also helpful in meeting us at the villa and providing us with additional information. The villa itself is beautiful - secluded with a patio overlooking the mountains of Abruzzo, nice grill, multiple chimneys, great kitchen and living area, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Unfortunately, it wasn't warm enough to use the pool, but we spent hours just sitting on the patio enjoying the view of the mountains and surrounding olive groves during the day, at sunset, and at night in front of a roaring fire. Palmoli, the nearest small town, was interesting to explore, as were Vasto, Termoli, and Santo Stefano di Sessiano (amazing!!). We took a day trip to Trivento, which is a beautiful historic mountaintop town in Molise. Craig booked a reservation for us for a Sunday afternoon lunch at a local agriturismo, which served us an unbelievably delicious Abruzzo lunch. Finally, we met the next-door farmers, Giuseppe and Evelina, who were a pleasure to interact with - even though they didn't speak English and we don't speak Italian! We purchased wine, olive oil, vegetables, eggs, and lamb from them - all fresh from their farm - they even invited us into their house for coffee and pastries. We felt so at home in this villa and area and would love to visit again someday.
Very relaxed holiday
We had a wonderful stay in a wonderful house! We spent eight days in Gunillas house and it was a very nice vacation. The house is very nice furnished and everything you need is there. Mostly we prepared our meals at home (sometimes with the grill) and enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere around. Thank you very much to Karen and Dave for welcome us and offering so much good food, oil, red vine and other special delicasies. Perhaps it would be a good idea to cover the pool by night because we always had a lot of insects in it. For following guests we remark that the last meters to the house are a little bit difficult to drive (especially with bigger cars) but it's manageable :)
Vasto is really a nice town with beautiful restaurants and beach.
We can recommand this house to all guests who prefer holiday in a wonderful but quiet area.
This part of Abruzzo is located right between the National Parks with fantastic mountains where you can ski, hike, go mountain biking or swim in waterfalls, and the beach with a selection of National Park beaches to commercial beaches with sun chairs and restaurants. Palmoli is a small village with the best butcher in the area, a small grocery store and a couple of bars/caf'es. There is a market on Tuesdays in the village too and a hotel which has a restaurant.

Owner Property Manager purchased this Farmhouse in 2010
Why Owner Property Manager chose Palmoli
I wanted 'A place in the sun', and Italy is my favourite place in Europe. The food, the wine, the landscape is fantastic. And Abruzzo is definitely a hidden gem. Just as beautiful as Tuscany or Umbria but less commercial. A bit more genuine. And close to Rome to for easy access. Plus the location between 3,000 meter high mountains and the ocean is simply stunning.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house is perfectly situated just outside a village, with the forest behind as a shelter to still make it private. And the views!! You never want to leave the terrace.
