Welcome To Villasfor2…
It was quite a search before we found exactly the right combination of property and location here in Abruzzo for our own home – and Villasfor2.
Then one sunny May morning in 2007, we stumbled on this tucked-away piece of Abruzzo; took one look – and knew we’d found just what we’d been looking for.
That was really the beginning of our Italian adventure.
In 2018, we’re celebrating Villasfor2’s 10th anniversary, and are now an established part of the Abruzzo holiday landscape.
We’re the region’s #1-rated villa rental for couples…
…and we’d love to welcome the two of you here for your next Italian holiday.
Our Villas – Traditional Style With Modern Comfort
We’ve transformed a 19th century barn on our property into our three rental villas, each just for two people.
Named after mountains in the nearby Majella National Park – Acquaviva, Pesco Falcone and La Majelletta – our villas are entirely self-contained, with their own private entrances. Each is identical in size, layout and amenities, so that none is ‘better’ than the other two,
With 6 metres – nearly 20 feet – of open space from the tiled floor, to the 100 year-old reclaimed chestnut-wood beam along the ceiling apex – and a picture window perfectly placed for you to enjoy the view – each villa is cool, light and airy.
Outside, the outline of the original barn has been retained, with the addition of cream-painted walls, and dark green shutters, topped with traditional decorative brickwork and big, curved terracotta roof-tiles. (And electricity-generating solar panels !)
Go inside through double-glass doors, and you’ll find 45 square metres of living space containing a galleried, wood-floored, mezzanine sleeping area with a king-size double bed; a fully-equipped kitchen with fridge, oven and four-burner gas hob; a proper dining table and chairs; plenty of space to sit-back and relax on a sofa and easy chair; and a clean, modern, tiled bathroom with walk-in shower.
There’s plenty of storage space; a personal safe for your valuables; an LCD wide-screen for watching DVDs – and at least 30 good holiday paperbacks in each villa.
Each villa has its own central heating and individually-controlled air-conditioning. They’re both included in our rental prices – as is unrestricted 24/7 wireless internet access on our private guest network.
Right outside each villa, screened by hedges of flowering jasmine, is your own private space on the wide south-facing sun terrace, with sun umbrella, table and chairs. Perfect for breakfast; a leisurely lunch; or a nightcap under the stars.
Take A Look At The Pool
No matter how perfect your holiday accommodation, it wouldn’t be the full package if every time you needed to cool off – and in an Abruzzo summer, that would be quite often – you had to jump into the car and drive to the beach.
A pool on your villa rental holiday isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity. And that’s why we put a lot of thought into ours.
Set in yet another of our big, south-facing sun terraces, our pool measures 11 x 7 metres (around 36 x 22 feet) and holds some 85,000 litres of water. (About 20,000 gallons).
The pool’s kept in perfect condition with a daily clean, (just in time for a pre-breakfast dip) and the water quality is maintained by a solar-powered copper ioniser. (Sounds alarmingly hi-tec – but is actually silent and unobtrusive). The pool’s for the exclusive use of our guests – so spaced-out alongside on the terrace are just six sunbeds. And three big sun umbrellas.
The complete pool area is private and secluded; surrounded by olive groves; and enjoying what one of our guests reckoned are “the best views in Abruzzo”.
The Perfect Place For A Honeymoon
Because Villasfor2 is for couples only – and because of our setting, and the privacy we can offer – we’ve become a popular honeymoon destination choice too.
We can arrange flowers; sparkling wine; and special treats to welcome you. Pretty much anything in fact. Just ask – and we’ll see what we can do…
In fact, Abruzzo’s becoming an increasingly well-chosen wedding choice, so if you’re thinking along those lines and book a Villasfor2 honeymoon, we’ll be happy to put you in touch with local English wedding-planners and photographers to arrange your special day.
Bring Your Friends !
If you’re wondering whether you can book two – or even all three – villas and come here with friends, the answer is – yes, of course !
