Overview
Villa -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Casoli, Province of Chieti, Abruzzo
Welcome to Villa Acquaviva, as featured on the BBC TV series Escape to the Continent, and a unique type of Italy villa rental holiday, just for couples in the unspoiled region of Abruzzo.
Acquaviva is one of our three tranquil villas for two, which we run here under the name Villasfor2, set in olive groves on a south-facing acre of unspoiled countryside, with what a guest has called the best views in Abruzzo.
We created our villas from a 19th century barn, ensuring that each has exactly the same layout and amenities. Inside each villa, is light, cool and airy, with individually-controlled air-conditioning; central heating; and free wireless internet access.
Right outside your door, is your own private space on the big sun terrace, with a wooden table, a cheery red sun umbrella and a couple of wooden chairs. Perfect for breakfast; al fresc...

A lovely set of 3 villas set in the beautiful mountains, rounded off with a pool and 2 great hosts in David and Pauline, nothing was too much trouble for them in helping with any information you might need in local restaurants and shops. Had a wonderful time and will return. Thanks again Chris and Lorraine

The villa we stayed in is part of a three-villa complex for couples only (no children noise then). Immediately recognizable as a non-Italian property when you step inside, with British quality of plumbing and better-than-average level of comfort. The main joys are outside: view of the hills so spectacular you can just sit there and watch this like you watch...

Great review - thanks so much. Yes, it's true our i/net speeds can be a little on the...er...leisurely side - but that's rural Italy for you. (In fact, when we first got here in 2007, our village didn't have i/net access at all !) But really pleased you so thoroughly explored what our area has to offer during your stay...

How to get there
Airport: Pescara: 32.3 mi
Railway: Lanciano: 12.4 mi
Ferry: Vasto: 28.0 mi
Ryanair operates frequent flights from Stansted in the UK to our nearest Pescara, which is an hour away.<BR><BR>But if that's not convenient, consider flying from practically any UK regional airport to Rome. It's then a straightforward - and highly scenic - 3-hr drive to us. (Pretty much all except the last 5kms on motorway). In fact, this is the arrival/departure route taken by most of our guests.<BR><BR>Driving here's easy. From the UK, we're reachable with just a 1-night stopover - or take it easy and make the journey here through either France or Germany an integral part of your holiday. And think of all the local food and wine you'll be able to take home with you !<BR>
