Vacri, Province of Chieti, Abruzzo
Casa Collina is a lovely country house in the middle of rural Abruzzo which we have renovated and extended. It is set in 1/2 acre of olive grove and fruit trees with wonderful views of surrounding countryside and the Maiella mountains. It is the ideal location to relax and unwind with a glass of local wine and a meal outside. It provides an inspirational setting for creative pastimes. Yet we have free wi-fi for those that want or need to keep in touch with others for business or pleasure.

For days out there are many activities to choose from with something to suit everyone.........
COAST and SEASIDE - the nearest beaches are 20 minutes drive away with many miles of beautiful and varied coastline to explore. There are water sports and sailing around Pescara as well as lots of beach activities and many bars and restaurants.
