“Our holiday in Abruzzo”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Casa del Colle is a wonderful house in a truly stunning position, with the dramatic mountains of the Gran Sasso on one side, the hill top town of Penne in the middle and the view of the Adriatic on the other. The house is large and modern, and finished to a very high standard. No expense has been spared! Polished granite floors, high specification kitchen, and luxurious wet rooms, not to mention the games room in the basement. The pool is large with plenty of space around it to soak up the sun and relax. The guide book, that came with the house was very informative, and gave places to visit as well as a selection of excellent restaurants, although Stephanos, down the road was very hard to beat. The house is in a beautiful area, although much of it is largely untouched by tourism, and you get a sense of the real Italy, and offers great value for money. This has to be the best villa we have rented and offered a perfect base from which to explore, we will definitely be coming back

Case del Colle is placed amongst rolling hills, valleys and mountains such that there is a never ending variety of scenery to gaze over at this stunning hill top villa.
The villa is well equipped with thoughtful attention to detail and all the fittings are done to a high standard. Very comfortable bed and pillows!
I'm looking forward to returning next year. Take care with finding the property - if you follow the careful instructions you will be fine particularly if you have sat nav.

“5* views from a 5* house”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

Magnificent views, supremely comfortable accommodation, brilliantly equipped kitchen and a fantastic pool combine to make this a super place for a holiday. Be as active as you like or just laze by the pool, cooled by the breeze across the top of the hill.... I would suggest some activity if only so that you can go out and enjoy the local restaurants in the evenings. Try the ice cream parlours in Penne and a 13 course meal at the nearby agritourismo Cignale. We loved our time at Casa Del Colle and are sure you will too.

So pleased you had such a good time at Casa del Colle and that you enjoyed the local restaurants as well as the Italian ice cream! Lots of guests have said they planned to be quite active but once there just loved being at the house and totally relaxed in the outside space where there is sun and shade to suit all.

“Forget Tuscany - super classy villa set in dramatic surroundings”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a wonderful week in August. Unfortunately we had 2 days of rain which ate into valuable pool time, but the variety of activities suggested by the owners for wet-weather were excellent and certainly gave us an appreciation for the surroundings that we wouldn't have got had we just stayed by the pool all the time (when you see it you'll understand why!). The rest of the time was spent in glorious sunshine and we were sure to make the most of the beautifully landscaped outside area and pool; loved clinging to the edge and looking out over the city of Penne. At the house we were greeted by a litre of the owners olive oil and a little hamper of things to tide us over, which was a lovely touch and really started the whole experience for us.

Highlights - the landscape is pretty hilly and windy so you MUST hire a car, which means you can then visit the huge variety of ancient and simply stunning towns. The local town of Penne is certainly worth a visit, Chieti for its grandeur and size, Atri for all the dramatically perched buildings on top of a hill and Santa Steffano for similar reasons. Go up the mountains that are looming over the villa. Umm...and go swimming in the river that takes you to the nearby lake! We went on a little saunter down to the lake and happened upon it (probably a 30 minute walk from the house). Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Thank you for such a comprehensive review of both your stay at Casa del Colle and the visits you made to nearby places. You were quite clearly busy exploring during your week but you also had time to enjoy the pool. Really liked your comment about clinging to the edge and looking at the view of Penne.
