The detail
Italy's Abruzzo is off the tourist track and unchanged. A third of the region is national and regional parks; it has 129 kilometres of sandy beaches and 21 ski areas.

Villa Maieletta is south-facing and sits in rolling hills on a quiet country lane close to the historic hill-top town of Palombaro, with unrivalled views of the Abruzzo landscape.

Experience and enjoy the rhythms of rural life, from the porchetta van and cafe culture to Festa month in August. Come to us for your winter skiing holiday. We are situated amidst great cycling and motorcycling country. The Giro D'Italia route often passes close to us. We have indoor parking for cyclists and motorcyclists, as well as mountain bikes for the use of our guests.

Relax in the classic Italian splendour of your apartment, or immerse yourself in the stunning landscape that surrounds you. Browse the Internet and check your email on wi-fi from the comfort of your own apartment - free of charge!

At Villa Maieletta you can be in the mountains in the morning, on the beach in the afternoon and dine in the countryside under the stars.

The Villa has luxuriously designed rooms and deeply comfortable furnishings, with elegant and distinctive key pieces. The bedroom environment is delightful, with the finest imported Indian 400 count cotton sheets, white goose down pillows, and embroidered damask bedspreads. An exotic bed canopy completes the scene.

The Villa features a host of personal touches, including specially designed & hand-painted clothes hangers.
Hallmark Christy towels are provided in the four piece bathroom, which is carefully steam-cleaned ready for your arrival.

Our apartments feature well-equipped fitted kitchens, with hob & microwave or oven, and are combined with a comfortable lounge and sitting area. There is ample crockery, cutlery and glassware, providing a pleasurable environment for food preparation and eating. Tea towels are provided, picnic cool bags for days out, and beach towels. We offer packed lunches if you prefer us to prepare your picnic and vegetarian evening meals by arrangement.
We know the importance of traveling light and supply a free welcome pack of essential items, to ensure that you are comfortable whenever you reach us. We can buy in additional items ready for your arrival, if you wish.

The area around us
Palombaro is a hill-top town with a mere 1,131 inhabitants, which sits 536 metres above sea level. It boasts spectacular views over the Valley dell'Avello and is at the foot of the 2,252 metre high Martellese Mountain, one of the highest in the Maiella range. Palombaro was the Italian location for the 2011 film, “Lords of London,” which is set in the fifties, and features Ray Winstone and Glen Murphy. The beautiful church of the Assumption, which dates back to 1561, appears in the wedding scene.

During the festival season in August there are artistic and cultural events everywhere, including modern tribute bands, wine tasting and the opportunity to try all kinds of food produced in the area. Other annual events in June and July include a Maiella mountain walk sponsored by famous pasta makers Delverde, a Fiat 500 car rally and the Pescara International Jazz Festival. The local Cocco firm are sole pasta suppliers to the Pope

Villa Maieletta is located in the hamlet of Limiti, about 4 kilometres from Palombaro. The local road is closed off for the Beer Festival on the second weekend of August, which brings the young and old together, with traditional and modern music, and dancing.. The hub of Limiti is uniquely well-serviced for such a small place, with the De Vitis family-run general store complex, a hive of activity owned by the amazing Maria, which includes a bar, hardware store and petrol pumps. Maria, a celiac sufferer, has made sure that the store stocks a great range of celiac foods. An "agroturismo" restaurant, which serves food produced almost entirely on its own land, is only 3 minutes walk from the Villa.

Wildlife is abundant; wild boar, eagles, falcons and owls are often in the area, with Apennine wolves in the mountains. Wildflowers, such as orchids, that would be the envy of Interflora grow undisturbed on our hillsides. Fireflies make the beautiful clear night sky twinkle in May and June.

People are wonderfully warm and friendly, with an openness and honesty that is seldom found among the urban sophistication of more developed places.

Beaches within easy reach
The nearest beach, Fossacesia is 30 km away. The fashionable beach resort of Pescara is a 45 minute drive. It is also a small fishing & ferry port, with an excellent fish market, open in the mornings. Ferry destinations include Croatia.
Kilometres of uninterrupted seafront stretch between Francavilla, which neighbours Pescara & Silvi. The cycle and footway that runs along the Adriatic coast is a popular place for locals to promenade & socialise.
We supply free beach towels, chairs & umbrella

Special Interest Holidays
Join us for a special olive picking holiday in early November, and return home with the oil from the fruits of your labours.
For a more energetic holiday we offer guided cycle tours and mountain bikes for the use of guests. We also lead motor cycle day trips for those who enjoy life on two wheels at a slightly faster pace.
Owners, Kate and Stephen, are experienced English language teachers and text book authors. Combine a holiday in a stunning location with on-site tuition, for guests of any age or ability level.
The area has a significant place in WWII military history. It is close to the Gustav and Bernhardt lines, and the site of the Battle of Ortona in December 1943. Evidence of the conflicts of the time can be found in the form of bullet holes in some of Palombaro’s buildings. Commemorative events are held locally on Remembrance Day each year.

Transport links
Villa Maieletta is an hour away from Pescara Airport; Ancona Airport is 2 hours and Rome Ciampino/Fiumicino around 2 1/2. Return flights for a couple from London Stansted on Ryan Air can be bought for less than £70. Although a car is recommended, there is a frequent and inexpensive coach service from Rome to Pescara which takes a similar amount of time.
A wide range of car hire desks can be found in airport arrival halls, with some of the most competitive rates offered on airline websites.

Kate and Stephen live in the Villa grounds away from the apartment. They have traveled extensively and lived in different countries in Asia. Their interests include cycling, walking, growing organic fruit and countryside conservation. Both delight in living in and learning from communities that provide a different experience, and are keen to support local enterprises. They feel that living on site enables them to help guests with all their needs and to provide a better holiday. Both are native English speakers who speak some Italian. Kate and Stephen love living so close to the mountains and consider themselves very lucky to have finally settled in such a lovely area.
