Here's a different type of Italy holiday just for the two of you Acquaviva, (like each of our rentals, named after a mountain in the Majella National Park), is one of just three tranquil villas - each of them only for couples - set in beautiful, unspoiled countryside, with wraparound views. Spend your days unwinding by our pool; exploring Abruzzo's matchless coast and countryside; sightseeing and shopping - or maybe trying our one of our Abruzzo Experiences. New for 2018, these include an authentic local cookery class just for two; tastings at local wineries; foodie tours; picnics; secret truffle hunts - and more ! Converted from a 19th century barn, each of our villas is identical in layout and amenities, so none is 'better' than the others. Each has its own private entrance and facilitie...Here's a different type of Italy holiday just for the two of you Acquaviva, (like each of our rentals, named after a mountain in the Majella National Park), is one of just three tranquil villas - each of them only for couples - set in beautiful, unspoiled countryside, with wraparound views.

Converted from a 19th century barn, each of our villas is identical in layout and amenities, so none is 'better' than the others. Each has its own private entrance and facilities. Inside, you'll find your villa is light, cool and airy. There's a king-size double bed; a clean, modern, fully-tiled bathroom with walk-in shower enclosure; a kitchen with fridge, 4-burner hob, and oven (plus all the cutlery, glasses, pots, pans and utensils you'll need); and space for you to relax and enjoy it all. And air-conditioning, central heating, and wi-fi internet access are all included in the price. Right outside your door, there's your own private space on the big sun terrace, with table, sun umbrella and a couple of chairs. Perfect for breakfast; al fresco dining; or a nightcap under the stars. Alongside our pool, there's another big south-facing sun terrace, with sunbeds and umbrellas. All this - plus private car-parking - in a landscaped acre bordered by olive groves.More

We had a wonderful time at Villa Acquaviva where we stayed for a week. The pool was amazing, with a stellar view; the villa was very comfortable and air conditioned; and the hosts David and Pauline were very warm and helpful. The area is gorgeous...More

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...More

Interaction with guests
We live here too - so you never have to worry if anyone will be around to let you in if your arrival is delayed. And because we've been here since 2007, we know all the best places to eat, drink, visit and shop - and we're always happy to make bookings for you and give you directions. But if you prefer to just go your own way, where and when the mood takes you during your stay here - that's fine too !

How to get there
Our nearest international airport is Pescara - an easy hour’s drive away. But if that's not convenient, Bari, Ancona and Rome are excellent alternatives. (In 2018, more of our UK guests who can't make it to Pescara are opting for Bari). Driving here is easy from wherever in Europe you come from. You can catch a train to our nearest station at Lanciano, about 15km away. It has great links to all of Italy and then into Europe, but once you’re here but you will need a car.
