The cosy two bedroomed apartment is situated at the back of the main house. It has its own entrance through southwest facing double glazed french windows that lead straight into the kitchen / living room. A porch runs the length of the back of the apartment.
Outside is a private patio and gravelled garden area shaded by mature trees that offer a welcome respite from the summer heat. This creates a wonderful tranquil spot for dining al fresco whilst enjoying the views. A table, benches and sun loungers are on the patio. A barbeque and traditional pizza oven are available on the small cobbled piazza near the house with its water feature for cooling the hot summer days.
The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge/freezer, gas hob, electric oven and all the usual utensils, including toaster, iron and kettle. There is not a washing machine in the apartment but, by arrangement, the one in the main house can be used. There is a TV, DVD player, radio and MP3 speakers, a WiFi internet connection plus piles of books and games.
The living room has a dining table with seating for four, a two seater sofa and two easy chairs.
The apartment has two bedrooms. One has a double bed and sunny French windows out onto the land whilst the other has twin beds but, again, these can be made up into a double bed if desired. The view from this bedroom extends towards Sulmona and the mountains of the Gran Sasso beyond.
The large back balcony of the house (which is the roof of the apartment) is for the exclusive use of apartment guests. It is accessed by an external spiral staircase and opens out the big views up and down the valley. There are sun loungers and a shady pergola to escape the heat when necessary!
