Where is Villa Ducale

Villa Ducale is located in the little hamlet of Via Piana in Crecchio, a medieval village in the province of Chieti that will let you step back in time.

Villa Ducale is just 13 minutes away from the beautiful sandy beaches of Lido Riccio (Ortona), or 25 minutes from San Vito Chietino. Both these beaches have recently been “blue flagged” thanks to the high quality of their water.

The Villa is also close to the mountains. It takes 20-25 minutes to reach Guardiagrele, one of the many historical market villages nestled in the Abruzzo’s mountains, it’s 35 minutes from Pretoro and takes less than a hour to reach the highest peak of Passo Lanciano, where a well renowned Ski resort is open during the winter season.

Given its position, Villa Ducale is the ideal location for enjoying both the destinations, as you can mix cultural, religious or gastronomic short distance trips to transform your holiday in something to remember.
