“Authentic”
Reviewed 12 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The Olive House is a lovely villa combining the best of traditional Italian charm, tasteful modern fittings and comfortable contemporary furnishings. Perfect as a home away from home for a quiet retreat.

A couple of miles from Roccascalegna, you're up in the hills with wonderful views. The coast is about half an hour away by car. Roccascalegna itself is a charming historic town, not at all commercialised. There are a few shops and a small castle open to the public but the real draw while I was there was a festival which included a street market, band and fireworks. The owners live in their own cottage on the same site so anything you need was attentively dealt with.

We are delighted that you have such great memories of your stay and do hope that we will get the chance to welcome you back to The Olive House Italy in the future. There are always festa's going on in or around Roccascalegna, so when you return we are sure you will be able to have even more festa fun!

We are working hard to make the villa even better for 2015 and hope to see you again soon.

Warm regards, Graham, The Olive House Italy.

“a cute house in lovely mountains makes a wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We traveled with family of 6 people and had a wonderful time in this lovely Olive House. The owners Graham and Mark were really funny, friendly and very helpful for local recommendations. They and their dogs contributed much to the welcoming athmosphere.

The house was cute, warmly and homely furnished, very clean and in generally very good condiition; the kitchen was well-equipped.

The most amazing part is definitely the location in the hills / mountains with stunning views from the roof terrasse to the seaside and into the mountains and Majella National Park. We had our greatest breakfasts there.

Roccascalegna is a cute little town with a great castle on a rock that is well-worth a visit (which is free for Olive house residents).

We definitely recommend the house and location for a real Italian experience.

“Fantastic location, stunning scenery and beautiful house”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had the most amazing time at the Olive House, the owners Graham and Mark were brilliant, very helpful and they have a lot of local knowledge that they shared with us. The house itself is beautiful, very clean, well equiped and nicely furnished and felt very homely, the rooms were all a good size with plenty of storage.

Fabulous location and the views were stunning, there's nothing nicer than sitting on the large roof terrace eating breakfast in the morning or eating and drinking in the evening. It's a very relaxing place to be.

The beach is a short drive away and was lovely, it's also just a short drive to Lake Bomba which is well worth a visit. We found it very cheap to buy groceries at the supermarket and also it was cheap to eat out.

If you are looking to experience the 'real' Italy then you should definitely come here.

I will definitely be going again next year

“A real find!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in November 2013

I stayed here with family and what a find. Sadly we were only able to stay for one night but what a lovely place. It is peaceful and quiet yet only a short drive, or a nice walk, into a lovely Italian village.
The house is excellently laid out with all necessary mod cons. The owners are friendly, helpful and leave you to get on with it whilst being available if needed.
I would happily recommend this place if you are looking for a taste of real Italy away from the hussle of a big town but want something close enough to civilisation by car.
