Casa La Rocca is a lovely reconstructed farmhouse with an attached holiday apartment, a mature vineyard, an orchard and a large garden / field standing at the southern end of the Sulmona valley in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.
It’s been our home and business for eleven years but, with our lives becoming more centered on the UK, we have decided to offer it for sale for someone to take on the adventure and develop it to its next level.
The house is set within quiet fields on the valley floor and enjoys tremendous views of the surrounding mountains and national parks. It’s 5 km from the ancient market town of Sulmona and 6km from the beautiful old hilltop village of Pettorano Sul Gizio. Roccaraso, the main ski resort of the Apennines, is a half hour drive. Pescara is less than an hour away on the Adriatic coast and Rome is reached in under two.
Casa La Rocca offers 306 m² of living space, with accompanying terraces and balconies, and stands in 4,000 m² of land. The main house has three double bedrooms and three bathrooms whilst the self-contained apartment adds two more double bedrooms and a further bathroom. The two ensuite bedrooms in the house offer the potential for developing an additional Bed and Breakfast business.
It’s a wonderful place to live and, for our apartment guests, has proven a very popular destination for a peaceful holiday in magnificent countryside. The business is established and successful. We operate for 26 weeks a year and, in recent years, have averaged about 16 weeks bookings.
The house, furnished apartment, outbuildings, grounds, machinery and holiday accommodation business are on sale for €299,000
