Casa 'Vanilla Sky' lies halfway between historic Penne and Loreto Aprutino, famous for its fantastic olive oil and local wines.

We have fantastic views of the Gran Sasso and Campo Imperatore. Beautiful sunsets inspired me to choose the name for our home. With unpolluted air here it also amazing for clear skies at night - star gazing is incredible here.

If you want to experience real Italy, away from the hustle and bustle, it is here, but with many places in easy reach if you want to explore.

Lo spazio
Our secluded villa with private pool for guests, is well equipped with 4 bedrooms (3 with zip and link super king beds which separate into full size singles when needed and a twin bedroom) plus 3 bathrooms.

The two top floor bedrooms each have a large private terrace. All windows have flyscreens and each bedroom gas a quality fan. The villa has a spacious open plan living room, diner, kitchen with dishwasher and all modern conveniences.

Egyptian cotton bedding, towels and pool/beach towels are supplied together with basic kitchen items (oil, vinegar, dried herbs) plus a welcome basket. Please advise of any food allergies, gluten free etc and I can try and adapt for you.

As you can imagine, with the beautiful climate we have here it is all about being outside. Set in one hectare of private grounds we have two large outdoor terraced areas on the ground floor of the villa; to the front we have a covered terrace plus a large wooden decking area (6 x 8m) ideal for yoga or extending outdoor living space. To the rear we have another covered terrace plus a 200 sqm patio surrounding a 12 x 5m salt water swimming pool with solar shower. The pool is open from May (opening date depends on weather) until end of September and possibly October if still warm. There is plenty of room to relax, eat alfresco and cook on our outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, barbecue, sink and double gas burner. Some wood and charcoal will be supplied. Guests have private use of the pool, I will clean it regularly for you.

The villa will ideally suit a large/multi generational family or group of friends, alternatively cycling groups and yoga enthusiasts are welcome and I can plan a package if you wish . There are many cycling routes locally - I often see groups of cyclists go past our property towards Vestea and onwards to the Gran Sasso. (Abruzzo often features on the Giro D'Italia route). We have a large garage and so storage of equipment is not an issue.

Our yoga deck has just been completed and classes can take place either on the deck at the front or by the pool at the rear depending on time of day and where the sun is. The beautiful sunrise view from the deck is amazing for those who are early risers.

We have an organic orchard and guests are more than welcome to help themselves, it produces cherries, apricots, plums and more! What could be nicer than collecting fresh fruit each morning for breakfast? I have also just planted a herb garden to the side of the outdoor kitchen - please feel free to help yourselves, so nice to have fresh basil, thyme, rosemary and other herbs on hand.

I live on site in an apartment beneath the villa - here to help if you need me, or to be invisible if you don't. You may see me working in the orchard or further down the garden or cleaning the pool for you early in the morning.

With rich fertile land, Abruzzo has many rare species of flora and fauna including birds of prey, bears, chingali (wild boar). I regularly see red kites and buzzards flying over our land. Rare species of orchid can be found growing wild in the orchard here. Farming is the main occupation here and our immediate neighbours are the Tenuta De Melis vineyard and an olive grove. Lamb is never very far from the menu here, the Abbruzzese love Arrosticini (skewered lamb kebabs) and it's quite usual to see a shepherd with his flock at the far end of our garden. Trattoria serve local wine and locally reared meat.

If you wish to travel whilst in Abruzzo there are many places to visit: the Gran Sasso and Majella mountain ranges are not to be missed. The adriatic coastline is amazing, Pineto to the north, Lanciano and Vasto to the south (the Trabocchi coast) are just a few of the coastal places to visit. If it's history and culture there are many mediaeval towns such as Citta Sant Angelo and Atri within easy reach. Rome is possible with train and Flixbus/Prontobus connections.

The famous Pecorino cheese is made locally and a trip to see it being made in Farindola is worthwhile, plus local vineyards are easily accessible and I can help arrange a tour and tasting if you wish.

I hope that I have given you a flavour of what we have to offer, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask and I hope to host you soon.

Hi I'm Karen, I've run holiday rentals in the UK for the past six years and I'm now embarking on a new challenge! Looking for a healthier, slower pace of life I've made the jump to Abruzzo in Italy. I'd visited Italy many times and fell in love with the food, culture and of course the weather! As soon as I saw this villa I knew it was the place for me, I wanted privacy and space around me, space to breath. Abruzzo was a new area to me and I could see that it had much to offer, I enjoy walking and appreciate the wildlife here. My husband loves cycling (road) which is very popular here and he hopes to make the most of it. An ideal area to do as much or as little as you want. I hope you decide to give Abruzzo a try, it's a fairly unknown province but well worth it, I hope to host you soon.

I live on site in an apartment underneath the villa so available to help when needed, invisible when not. You may see me working at the far reaches of the garden. The pool is completely private for guests staying in the villa - I will just clean it for you, I will not use it.
