Five miles from the campside “Rocca di Sotto” there is the authentic house “Casa Gufo” (Owl House). It’s an small farm within 8 acres of land in the foothills of the Appenine Mountains in Abruzzo.
It sits perched on its own hill with 360 degree views of the beautiful Italian countryside.
The holiday cottage has parking for 3 cars and its own private entrance.
We, from Rocca di Sotto, like the house so much that we offered the owner to help her to get more people to enjoy also from her nice place.
Private swimming pool
Casa Gufo is the perfect location to relax in the sunshine by the pool however the surrounding countryside is ideal for walks and the nearby mountain ranges are perfect for day trips visiting the picturesque hilltop villages, trekking and enjoying the stunning views. It takes 40 minutes to reach the Adriatic Sea and there is a variety of historical Abruzzo villages close by.
The kitchen is well equipped and features a large shady portico ideal for meals and afternoon snoozes.
The holiday cottage has a charming, double bedroom, bathroom and terrace on the upper floor. There is a sofa bed in the downstairs sitting room so sleeps 2-4 people comfortably. The upper bedroom and lower rooms are connected, in the traditional style of Italian farmhouses, by and external staircase. This means that for younger children it may be advisable to use the 2 camp beds we will supply in the main bedroom.
The second bedroom is at the upper floor of the main house. It’s own private entrance can be reached by a stairway next to the cottage. This is a large, bright double room with its own bathroom and sizeable terrace.
This floor also has a third spacious, airy bedroom for two which may be rented at the daily price of €25.
Bedding, towels and dressing gowns and cleaning is all inclusive.
The local shops are a 5 minute drive away and the nearby villages offer a selection of friendly restaurants.
