About Robert and Monica Hastings
Robert and Monica are a retired couple. Robert was a Senior Lecturer in Italian Studies at the University of Manchester and Monica was a teacher of English at Withington Girls School. They bought their property in Abruzzo over 40 years ago. In their retirement they spend 3 or 4 months a year there, enjoying the beach, going for walks in the mountains, harvesting the olives, figs, cherries and plums in their garden and visiting places of interest in the surrounding region. Their property has been fully restored, and in addition to the ground-floor flat, converted from an old stable, they also let a converted barn at the bottom of the garden. That too can also be seen on this website.
Robert and Monica Hastings purchased this Apartment in 1976
Why Robert and Monica Hastings chose Ortona
The apartment is well appointed, recently restored and full of character. The beach is less than 5 minutes away by car, and you can be up in the high mountains in about three quarters of an hour. There is golf at Miglianico, just 4 miles away, and skiing in the winter 25 miles away at Passo Lanciano. Abruzzo has a wealth of unspoilt natural scenery, including 3 national parks and one regional park, picturesque hill-towns, castles, ancient abbeys and mountain hermitages, significant Roman remains and an excellent tradition of food and drink, based on natural local ingredients.
What makes this Apartment unique
Conveniently placed for the beach and the mountains, with all necessary facilities (supermarkets, shops, banks, bars, restaurants, etc.) within easy reach, but sheltered and secluded at the same time, in a beautiful rural environment.
