The villa is perched on a hill, with views of the sea, neighboring villages, and the mountains. Olive trees grace the property. It is quiet, but offering easy access to the surrounding area, from the beaches of Pescara or inland to mountain villages. Also it is a pleasant walk to the nearby charming village of Monte Silvano. Generally, though, a car is absolutely necessary.
What would make it better? Very little. Like most homes some little things are not noticed, such as a need for more kitchen cleaning aides, instructions for the appliances (unfamiliar to North Americans). A significant improvement would be handholds for the bathtub in the master bedroom.
Would I recommend the rental to friends? Absolutely. Would I return? Absolutely!

This well appointed villa was perfect for four couples who explored the Abruzzo Region. It has all the modern conveniences of the U.S. and the owner is just a call or text away. Her family lives nearby and was available to assist us as needed. There is a huge grocery store nearby for food and wine. The pannificios are nearby for your morning cornette and cappucinis. There is a washing machine so don't pack a lot and the modern kitchen has an American size coffee pot, 3 espresso pots, toaster, microwave and full size refrigerator. You must have a car but you will find yourself just wanting to sit on the porches and enjoy the fabulous views of the Adriatic, the mountains and nearby hilltop towns. There are several towns you will want to explore nearby within an hours drive. The people are so friendly and inviting you will want to return. After a day of sight seeing, you will enjoy your home away from home. This is an unknown gem that you won't want to pass up.

From the moment I arrived at Villa Adriatica I felt like paradise had been found. It really was only a short drive from Pescara Airport, despite it being August! It took about 15 minutes at most. The pictures I have seen of the Villa are stunning but in person it is even bigger than I imagined and the view- I am speechless. I found myself repeatedly uttering the words, WOW & so beautiful. I am planning a Yoga Retreat there next summer and wanted to ensure the facilities adequate for my group. I am most certainly impressed and will definitely be returning to the Villa next summer and possibly many more time after.
The premises are so clean and although it was 35C outside, the villa was a perfect temperature as the wind blew through the windows and the marble floors throughout were grounding and cooling.
The property manager was perfectly professional, prompt and friendly. Any request I had was addressed immediately. For example I had the wrong converter for my phone charger and he lent me his personal one. The villa is fully equipped for meal preparations of any sort. And as it is so large I have no problem with the idea of hosting a dozen yogis there. Even with shared accommodations we will all have ample room for privacy.
I spent my time at the villa alone in the evenings and felt 100% safe. There I was a woman travelling alone on the top of a mountain in a 5500 sq.ft. Villa - my own little sanctuary. Needless to say, I did not want to leave!
The beaches and the surrounding villages are spectacular as well. As I was only there for a week, I did not want to venture too far from Pescara. Within 30 minutes of Pescara I visited numerous tiny villages, each one with something special to offer.
I cannot wait for next summer to come to host my yoga retreat there. Villa Adriatica can easily become my home away from home.
Loved everything from the nearby restaurants to the people and all the sites to see. I should have brought bug spray however as I did get numerous mosquito bites the first night. Other than that, NO complaints. And for the record, I do have very high expectations and do fall into the class of a world traveler.
Visit with your family, friends or on your own. Retreats, getaways, family time, whatever, this villa can meet your needs!
I enjoyed a relaxed stay in the Abruzzo villa. An important factor for me is that the area is green, lush and tranquil, and yet close to the airport and trains station. It was super easy to reach the villa. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable and cosy.
I love the small villages nearby, and the fact that the area wasn't over-run by tourists. There is a true authentic feel and atmosphere, which I really appreciated. The villa was clean and I had everything I needed. I am definitely returning again!
