Villa Ducale is a self catering Villa in Abruzzo available for holiday rental. The Villa has been built from scratch with a specific concept in mind: comfort. For this reason the villa has been built on three different floors and is surrounded by a wide garden letting you enjoy all of your time spent in Abruzzo.
The main floor
All the bedrooms come with king-size beds; however – if required – one bedroom can be easily transformed into a two single beds.
The kitchen is fitted with modern appliances (fridge, freezer, gas hob, electric oven, kettle). There is also a brand new dishwasher and a microwave.
The dining room concept doesn’t really exist in Italy, therefore the main dining table is located in the kitchen: the heart of the Italian household. However, during the summer season, you can set up the table on the wide balcony and enjoy a Summer al fresco dining experience while being rocked by the breeze coming from the sea or down from the mountain.
The balcony surrounds the property on three sides and becomes a fabulous terrace out of the master bedroom from where you can enjoy the spectacular views over the Italian rolling hills and distant Majella and the Grand Sasso mountains (formerly known as the Sleeping Beauty).
Villa Ducale has a gas central heating system, as well as a natural wood fireplace connected to the main heating system, which during the winter season can be used to warm up the entire house.
During the summer season the solar panels installed on the roof supply plenty of hot water for your baths and showers.
The living room has a Colour TV and a DVD player, provided with a selection of both Italian and English DVDs, to make you feel at home. A TV colour can be found also in all bedrooms and in the kitchen, although no english channels can be received at the moment (the master bedroom has a DVD player too).
Villa Ducale has an enormous garage where up to three cars can be parked. The garage can be made available on request only. A wide private drive way and an ample external parking area within the main wall are also available for parking the car(s).
Last but not least the garden: in front of the house, a nice are ready for your relaxation and to allow your kids play in safety.
Here you can find the utility room with a washing machine where your clothes can be cleaned and ironed. The basement is connected to the first floor through an internal stair and gives you access to the large garage, which can be made available on request.
There is also a tavern with the log chimney connected to the main heating system.
This area of the Villa is currently excluded from the renting. We aim to complete the area and make it available in the near future for wider family.
The Villa is surrounded by a 650mq garden that you can use to relax while absorbing the wonderful view of the Majella Mountain, in the mean time your kids are playing in the safety of a wall delimited area.
Adjacent to the garden we have built a lava-stone BBQ to cook arrosticini and steaks as well as a traditional wood-oven has been built for you to cook delicious Italian pizza “al mattone” or “arrosticini” at home. Our personal Italian pizza recipe will be left for you to enjoy.
- We have a no-smoking policy at our villa (and we are confident you will respect this).
- We allow you to bring your pet with you, but dogs can’t sleep in the property (even during the winter season.
