Casa Posta is a fully restored 300 year old Italian farmhouse nestling in the Val di Sangro valley of Abruzzo. This is an area of stunning natural beauty with mountains to the west and beaches to the east providing a range of year round activities to suit all interests.
There is a large enclosed garden with two terraces, both of which are south facing.
In winter the property is perfect with the wood-burning stove making it very warm and cosy, ideal for those of you who enjoy skiing. Rocarasso is approximately1 hour drive away and the more local slopes of Passo Lanciano within an hour.
The original house comprised of 4 large rooms and was once used as the post house for the village. These rooms have been tastefully converted into 3 bedrooms (double, twin and single), shower room, kitchen/dining area with log burning stove and lounge with three sofas, two of which can double as beds.
The kitchen and lounge open on to the south facing courtyard through French doors. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, seating 8 people comfortably.
The main bedroom has double doors that open onto a small balcony with amazing views of the valley.
Each bedroom has high, beamed ceilings and ample storage for clothing is provided. The upstairs is finished with wooden floors making this cool for summer and warm in the winter.
Natural finishes have been used throughout, maintaining the rustic character of the property.
The garden is south facing with wonderful views of the valley. There is a sheltered sun terrace with garden furniture, a courtyard immediately outside the kitchen and lounge and a shaded tree area towards the bottom of the garden.
Within the garden we have a number of olive trees, a fig and an almond tree. All beautiful and productive at varying times of the year!
Parking is located to the side of the property within the grounds.
The house is ideally situated for Lake Bomba, which is a beautiful place to relax or to be more active with all water sports available here. We are near the mountains which offer stunning views exhilarating walks and intriguing villages for exploration and of course, skiing in the winter.
The Adriatic coast is only a drive away and you can spend days on quiet coves or fully serviced beaches with all tourist facilities available. One of our favourites is that of le Morge which offers warm, shallow waters, safe for bathers of all ages and abilities. The costa dei Trabocchi is over 60 kms long and includes many small bays and coves where you can enjoy a swim in safe, clean waters. For families we are near to Vasto water park which is a thrilling place to spend an exciting day with the family.
