In a quiet area, amongst the green hills of Manoppello, this pretty detached cottage lies on two floors and is surrounded by 10,000 sqm of land. This recently renovated villa, measuring 110 sqm, is composed as follows:
Ground floor - entrance, living room, kitchen, bathroom and a large wine cellar
First floor - 2 large double bedrooms.
The property is in a very private spot and yet very close to the town centre (2-3 minutes by car). There is room for a pool in the garden and, on the side of the house, there is a lovely porch which is perfect for al fresco dining. The renovation has retained many original features like the vaulted ceilings and the exposed stonework.
MANOPPELLO - PESCARA PROVINCE
Manoppello is a beautiful, small town, located on the top of a hill. It is 257 metres above sea level and affords panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Inhabited since pre-roman times, it now attracts both pilgrims and art lovers alike. There are many 18-19th century civic buildings and churches, constructed and characterised with ‘pietra di Manoppello’, the renowned local stone. The town is probably most famous for its Holy Relic, a piece of cloth which supposedly bears an image of Christ’s face. It is kept in the Santuario del Volto Santo.
Manoppello has a range of facilities including a mini-market, bakery, pharmacy and post office. There are also bars and restaurants serving local delicacies.
It is an ideal base for those wishing to enjoy outdoor life and participate in open-air activities. The Maiella National Park is close by, providing many exciting adventures together with winter sports at the ski resort of Passo Lanciano.
