Interaction with guests
Owners Joe and Frankie live in an apartment in the villa and are always available to chat, recommend attractions, day trips or restaurants etc. Guests will be provided with full keys & gate controls. Generally, if we knock on your door, it is to give you some of our freshly grown produce from our vegetable patch to taste. Alternatively if you want to be left alone, that too is possible! Being Italian, Joe is also available to provide cookery demonstrations for guests (wine provided) who want to learn some of the secrets of Italian cooking. If you need help booking anything in advance of or during your stay, we are here to help! Our cat and dog are very tame and love to meet new people as does our daughter (she is also very tame ).

About the neighbourhood
The local area is still quite 'undiscovered' and is perfect for those people who want to try out their Italian, meet the locals and experience a bit of 'real Italy'. We are open all year round and love to help people discover Abruzzo and its seasonal offerings. Only 20 mins drive from the coast, we also benefit from being just a short drive from the Majella National Park and its many hiking trails and, during the winter, its uncrowded ski runs. On a clear day one can see the coastline from the ski slopes! There are some great local restaurants, perfect for foodies!
Getting around
To see the real Abruzzo and to discover it's hidden gems, we would always recommend that our guests hire a car. For non-drivers, there are buses from the town to nearby Chieti which provides train and bus transport links to many destinations.
Some of our more energetic guests hire mountain and road bikes, we will happy to provide details of bike rental outlets should you wish to 'get on your bike' whilst here.
