1st Floor

Bedroom 1 Very large bedroom with king-size Italian antique bed (with new mattress!) and sofa bed, private wash basin and window leading to outside Terrace. Extra double beds available.

Bedroom 2 Large bedroom with brass king-size bed and private wash basin. Two doors leading to small balcony.

Bathroom 1 Completely modernised with shower, toilet, bidet and washbasin

Terrace Huge terrace 12 x 6 metres with breathtaking views of surrounding mountains. Has swing chair, mahogany round table with 6 chairs, mosaic table & 2 chairs and of course a charcoal barbeque and fire bowl. Just completed large gazebo     4 x 4m to cover table and chairs.- ideal  shield from the sun on hot days.

Ground Floor

Bedroom 3 Downstairs bedroom with two single beds, desk and computer , also a travel cot (that can be placed anywhere) plus wireless baby alarm with camera, highchair etc.

Bathroom 2 Brand new bathroom (downstairs) with washbasin, bath shower and toilet

Lounge with leather 3 piece suite (sits 6), large open log fire, 55” LED satellite television (freesat only) , DVD 5.1 Theatre sound system, VCR, Hi Fi system . All walls original exposed stone. If you feel you have a musical flare then we have a electronic keyboard (cheap one!) and professional karaoke machine with nearly 500 songs - if you feel like a good old fashioned sing song in the evenings!

Open Room Has lovely Italian antique table (seats 6+ easily) and large sideboard/cupboard. Also bamboo round glass table with chairs - seats four. We call it the Open Room as there are only shutters to the large window area and entrance - bigger than a garage door - I.e. No glass. Although the house has mobile and ceiling fans these are rarely used as with nearly 1 metre thick stone walls the insulation is very good. Generally there is a small cool breeze - even in very high temperatures!

Kitchen  Fully equipped kitchen, gas hob and cooker, fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, espresso coffee, grinder, food mixer, ice crusher, electric grill, slow cooker, halogen cooker, boiled & poached egg cooker  etc. Full range of cutlery, crockery etc. Also we have a large 2 metre pine table with 8 seats and also a small bamboo table and 2 chairs. French doors to patio

Internet  We have a free internet connection using a MyFi data connection.  BUT, we are limited to 4GB/month and so this gives plenty of emails etc. but VERY little downloading of music.video etc. It is easy to check amount used and you will be charged if over 1 GB/week, as future guests that month will not be able to use. However there is free internt at the Sports Bar in the village if you need more downing capability.

After unlimited internet this is a bit of a pain!


Patio Outside kitchen, large patio with mahogany table and six chairs and a pergola with grape vines growing up supports - can be eaten if ripe

Swimming Pool Large 12 x 6 metres, 2m deep end, fully automated with electric solar cover.

PoolHouse This was built in Feb 2008 and is a large log cabin situated at the deep end of the pool. It has two single beds and e bathroom (shower, toilet and washbasin) and a carpet!!. The PoolHouse is not a bedroom as it houses pool equipment etc but is ideal if extra space is needed for older children or adults and increases the sleeping capacity by a further 2 if really needed, although re its description it is primarily meant for use in conjunction with the swimming pool..

Local Amenities Obviously the Adriatic sea, and good skiing in the Winter. Serramonacesca is very quiet, charming and un spoilt village just 7 min walk away. It has two village stores (well stocked) with supermarkets (and Hyper) 15 min away by car. Two bars, several restaurants (excellent and cheap), pharmacy, doctor etc.  There are plenty of lovely historic villages and towns to drive to, many walks

Within an hour’s drive there are all the expected tourist facilities (if you want them)  two Water parks, golf, karting, hot natural spars, nightclubs and many other attractions. Golf at Brecciarola is just 10 min away.

However, one thing I like about Abruzzo, it is not “touristy” and driving around (apart from Pescara) is a real joy on the uncrowded country roads
