Great location, relaxing holiday!
A great, relaxing location. We loved seeing and hearing the different wildlife (fox cubs, wild boar, hares). The views are amazing and we were able to completely relax during our stay. We spent many days by the pool which our children (13, 10, 3) loved. The house is very well equipped and has everything you need, there’s also a great range of books to read whilst sitting by the pool! We were all very amused by the moving of some of our things left outside over night - we assumed, by foxes! Two pairs of goggles chewed, a shoe moved on to the grass bank and a blanket dragged on to the grass. The children found this fascinating!!! Make sure you take plenty of zanzare spray we had over 60 bites between 3 of us!!! We visited Penne, Città Sant’Angelo and Pescara during our stay, Città Sant’Angelo being our favourite! If you need to do a shop the Todis is Cesi has all your needs and isn’t too far away (10 mins in the car). The only day we had a big thunder storm we visited Pescara Nord shopping centre which was great for a wander and eating. There’s a big supermarket here too to stock up on essentials and of course vino!!
Many thanks to Anna, Luigi and the pool cleaning man (visits twice a week to clean and check pool).
The photos do not do the property justice absolutely amazing view to wake up to each morning, we had a fab week up in the mountains very peaceful and tranquil.
The pool was lovely and the house had everything you needed. Luigi was very informative and gave great instructions on where to go. I would highly recommend a holiday stay here and we didn't want to leave....
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Degna, it's a pretty hard place to leave! We would love to welcome you back in the future, you were great guests!
Lovely property, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Villa is very well equipped and relaxing.
Villa Degna was clean and extremely well equipped, with lots of small touches which made it feel like a home from home, the pool area was wonderful. The Villa is surrounded by fruit trees and in a very rural location it was a very relaxing space to soak up wonderful views, with a glass of wine and a good book. Apricots were readily available to pick from the trees during our stay and the owners own home produced red wine was a treat once chilled and less strong if you add gasossa!
The garden area was abundant with birds, Apennine Hares and a fox in the early morning and evening, which were very entertaining to watch. There are shops locally, but the Todis supermarket in Cesi was a little limited. There is a very large Auchan superstore on Pescara opposite the airport which would be a good stop off before heading to the villa depending on your arrival time.
The local minor roads are a little challenging due to the past winter and the inclement weather the area unfortunately experienced including heavy snow, flooding and mud slides, but they are under a steady programme of repair and reconstruction. Watch your sat nav if using as it may direct you to roads that no longer exist!
Silvi Marina is a nice beach resort and a great place to stop for a Gelato and Coffee in the many bars and very reasonably priced in comparison to the UK cost for inferior products! The private beaches rent out sunbeds and umbrellas and the beach is very fine sand, great for children but extremely warm 38/40 degrees on the day we visited, Don't forget to take your suncream !
Silvi will become much busier now the Italian schools have broken up for the summer holidays. Pescara which is a much larger city also has excellent beach facilities but parking can be a challenge and is much busier.
All in all if you are looking for a well equipped villa and peaceful location with a lovely view and decent sized pool, this is a great choice. The owners obviously love their property and the surrounding area. We found it hard to leave. Enjoy!
Stunning views in a lovely location.
A well equipped villa in a fantastic location to enjoy the ever changing landscapes of Abruzzo. The pool was a delight to cool off from the hot July sun. Many villages/towns nearby where you can enjoy markets, browse the shops and of course wine and dine in the restaurants. Only negative point, there is no golf course at present but still huge grounds to explore at the villa. We had a fantastic week in this great location.
The view is lovely. It is very secluded , with loads of space around the villa. The swimming pool looks great although we didn't have good weather to try it out.
The villa and grounds were exceptionally well maintained and spotlessly clean.
The management team were very helpful.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.....and we are really fussy.
Thank you for your comments, we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Degna and hope you see you again in the future!
Very nice house
Very calm, lovely situated, well equipped, for us perfect.
Thanks for your comments. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay at Villa Degna!
