Stunning location - panoramic views
Apartment, Entire place - San Giorgio, Castiglione Messer Raimondo, Italy
Villa Collecimino is a spacious holiday property, which can be rented as 2 separate apartments or together, located in 3.5 acres of orchards, olive groves and agricultural land, in the hamlet of San Giorgio (featured in Channel 4's series of 'A Place in the Sun' in 2011), on top of Collecimino hill 550 metres above sea-level, with stunning panoramic views of Abruzzo's Gran Sasso and Maiella mountain ranges, and, to the north-east, the Adriatic Sea.
It is 5 minutes' walk from an 'agriturismo' offering delicious meals from home-grown produce, 10 minutes' drive from the village of Cesi, which has a large supermarket, a pizzeria and a bar/cafe and a short drive from many other restaurants and 15 minutes' drive from two medieval hilltop towns - Penne and Castiglione Messer Raimondo.
Each apartment has balconies/terraces big enough for dining/relaxing/sunbathing or for just enjoying the beautiful views of Abruzzo. We are ideally placed for both the Adriatic coast and the mountains, being only 30 minutes' drive from each.
Villa Collecimino is about 45 minutes' drive from Abruzzo's International Airport in Pescara and 2.5 hours from Rome. You can walk/ski in the mountains in the morning, and swim and sunbathe on the sandy Adriatic beaches in the afternoon. Or explore the historic towns and villages, sail from Pescara's award-winning marina, take the ferry to the beautiful Tremiti Islands or even to Croatia, or just enjoy a glass of Montepulciano d' Abruzzo while watching the constantly changing mountain views.
Our most popular apartment no. 2 (132 sq.m + terraces) due to its elevated position on the top floor of the villa has terraces on all 4 sides giving 360 degree views of the Maiella and Gran Sasso mountain ranges, the Adriatic sea and numerous medieval hilltop towns.
