Holiday Rental House
'Il Refugio' is a charming, traditional, stone house, typical of this part of Abruzzo. The decor is tasteful and comfortable complimenting the rustic Italian characteristics, such as the vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and beamed ceiling in the lounge. The property is set in beautiful countryside with lovely views all around, including amazing views of the mountains, but is only a 10 minute drive from the beautiful, ancient walled town of Penne. The house and grounds are accessed directly from tarmac roads. The house sleeps 4/5 – in two good sized double bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen, with gas hob, electric oven, log burning stove, table and chairs, has everything necessary for preparing exciting dishes from locally sourced fresh food.

The vaulted ceilings add an extremely characteristic touch. There is a walk-in pantry, meaning that if you decide to 'do a big shop' at the start of your holiday, storage certainly won't be a problem. The relaxing lounge has a log burning stove, flat wall mounted television, CD /DVD Player and 2 comfortable settees. There is an wide choice of books and DVDs. The family bathroom has a full size bath and shower. The walls are two feet thick making the house cool in summer and warm in the cooler months. The ground floor utility/wash room, containing toilet, bidet, sink and washing machine, is a useful place to keep your walking shoes and beach items. Another room has a large fridge/freezer. The house is centrally heated. More

The house has all the amenities you require, while retaining its rustic charm. Perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine with stunning views of the Gran Sasso mountain range. Within easy reach of the beach, mountains and historic towns by car.

Il Refugio does exactly what it says on the tin. A beautiful little house full of character that is far enough away from the hustle and bustle, but near enough to Penne to get everything that you need. The huge outside patio and garden make...More
