About Mrs Karen Shipley
Having run a successful holiday let in the UK for the past six years I decided it was time for a new challenge! I have relocated to Abruzzo and just love it. Since moving here I've built a swimming pool and have started landscaping which is a long term project - as they say in Italy 'piano, piano'. I'm hoping to develop holidays further, possibly running cycling and yoga breaks. The home is in a lovely position with views over to Moscufo to the front and the Gran Sasso to the rear. I live on site in an apartment below the villa so I'm on hand if you need me and invisible if you don't. You may see me in the garden from time to time; I'm developing the orchard which has produced well this year. No chemicals are used so it's all organic and feel welcome to help yourselves, plus I've just planted a herb garden to the side of the outdoor kitchen - please do feel free to use it. More than happy to answer any questions you have and will try to help wherever possible.
Mrs Karen Shipley purchased this Villa in 2018
Why Mrs Karen Shipley chose Penne
I think this property is an ideal base for exploring Abruzzo; just a short drive from Pescara airport so you can be relaxing (and swimming!) soon after your flight. We're in easy reach of the coast and a walk up the mountains is a must! Beautiful surroundings, historic mediaeval towns, the coast and great food and wine - what's not to like.
What makes this Villa unique
It's a spacious villa which will suit large families or groups of friends. From our property you can walk to the local vineyard - we always buy our wine from there. Local cheesemaking and winetasting can be arranged. There are many cycling routes, Abruzzo regularly features on the Giro D'Italia route.

Lovely villa and great host!
This was a great property, and centrally located. Karen, the owner, was delightful and on hand for anything you might need. The villa is very nice and well equipped, with a large, refreshing pool, and outdoor kitchen. A/C in bedrooms was perfect as our first few days were quite hot. We did day trips to Penne, Loreto Aprutino, Citta Sant'Angelo, Gran Sasso park, Castel del Monte, Santo Stefano di Sassanio. Thank you Karen!
Thank you Mary Ann, you are more than welcome! It was a pleasure to host you, and so pleased that you found the villa comfortable and centrally located - indeed we're fortunate to be half way between the mountains and the sea so you have the best of both and so many places to visit. I hope you enjoy your travels through Italy. I hope to see you again one day.
