Welcome to Villa La Majelletta, 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.
La Majelletta 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;...

We first stayed here in 2010 and have always wanted to go back but due to flights not available any longer it was harder to access from Northern and Southern Ireland. (We don't usually go anywhere a second time)! However, this year flights were available again from Dublin to Rome, it was an easy enough journey if somewhat a bit...

Management response:

A real pleasure to see you both again - and thanks for the great review. Delighted we still lived up to expectations after a 7-yr gap - hope it won't be that long before the next visit !

If you're looking for an unspoilt, untouristy piece of Italian rural life, look no further! Lovely warm pool, air conditioned apartments, friendly hosts. Mountains and seaside accessible and easy to reach. Quick and easy trip from Pescara airport. Great relaxing break.

From our initial contact with Pauline and David, on line, you got the feeling that this place was going to be good holiday. Initial information package with driving route information etc. arrived in plenty of time to become acquainted with what was ahead of us, Upon arrival we had an extremely warm welcome, and the the villa was absolutely spotless...

Management response:

...and from the way you two stepped off the plane and right into the swing of our village's annual festival, we knew it was going to be a good holiday too ! Think the music, food, wine and midnight fireworks gave your hol the perfect start and very happy the rest of your stay maintained the mood !

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 airport at Pescara, which is an easy hour away. Not convenient for where you live in the UK ? Then consider flying from practically any UK regional airport to Rome. After that - 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. Driving here is easy. From the UK, we are 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 can take home with you !
