The Space

Deutscher Text weiter unten.

Located at the Piano Caprafico at the foot of the Maiella mountains, you have a splendid view of the mountains to the one hand, and of the adriatic sea on the other. We are 30 minutes drive away from the seaside and about 40 minutes to reach the ski resort of the Maiella. The house, one big room plus the bathroom cube is euqipped with 1 large "matrimoniale" bed plus one smaller bet on the balcony above the bathroom. The house is situated in the middle of the olives. We are cultivating about 240 trees which in normal years would render around 3 tons of fruit - to become 500 litres of oil.

The main attractions?

The house is situated in a unique spot, in the middle of the olives, next house is 120 mtrs away, and its our house. Splendid view towards the mountains and towards the sea.

Nature - The Maiella mountains and the hills around are worth a lot of excursions.
In spring, you will find lots of different varieties of orchids flowering.

The garden around the Studio Mare Monti shows more than 100 different roses, a marvel of perfumes and flowers in April and May.

Food - Abruzzo is a truffle area, we can help finding the truffle hunter who will sell some of them found the same morning.

Wining and dining - There is a vast choice of restaurants - ranging from the simple Lunch at 10 Euro nearby to one star Michelin (Villa Maiella, Guardiagrele) to two stars (Niko Romito at Castel Di Sangro)

Many wine makers like Marramiero and Masciarelli have come up with new wines of an incredible taste over the last 2 decades.

The house has just been finished, as you see from the pictures, the inside is perfected already. Outside will get a second skin beginning of next year.

Outside on the terrace you find a barbecue/pizza oven from solid brickwork.

***********************************************************
Auf der Hochebene (400 meter) Piano Caprafico am Fuße der Maiella haben Sie eine wundervolle Sicht auf die Berge auf der einen Seite, und zur anderen den Blick auf die Adria.

Sie wohnen 30 minuten Fahrzeit vom Meer entfernt, und etwa 40 Minuten vom Skigebiet der Maiella.

Das Studio Mare Monti besteht aus einem einzelnen grossen Raum von 45 qm plus Badezimmer von 6 qm. Es bietet neben dem grossen Doppelbett ein weiteres Bett auf dem Balkon oberhalb des Badezimmers.

Das Haus steht mitten im Olivenhain. Es steht allein, das nächste Haus, unser Haus, ist etwa 120 meter entfernt.
Wir produzieren Olivenöl von 240 Bäumen, was uns in guten Jahren etwa 3 Tonnen Früchte beschert = 500 liter Olivenöl.

Die Hauptattraktionen der Region rund um Caprafico?

Natur! Die Maiella und die Hügel rundum sind ein perfektes Gebiet für Exkursionen und Wanderungen.

Der Garten rund um beide Häuser ist ein kleiner Park mit u.a. mehr als 100 verschiedenen Rosen die für den Frühling eine Duft und Blütenorgie versprechen.

Von April bis Juni blühen in der Gegend auch eine Vielzahl verschiedener Orchideen, im Garten wie in der Natur drumherum.

Essen! Die Abruzzen sind eine Trüffelregion. Fast das ganze Jahr können Sie Trüffel direkt vom Sammler kaufen, tagesfrisch. Oder Sie fahren ins Herz der Trüffelregion, und essen z.b. im Restaurant "Il Tartufo" in Ateleta.
Eine grosse Auswahl an guten und sehr guten Restaurants finden sich in den Abruzzen, vom einfachen Mittagessen in der Bar Risorgimento zu 10 Euro bis hin zu den Sterne Restaurants Villa Maiella Ristorante Reale.

Wein!
In den letzten 20 Jahren sind viele sehr gute Junge Winzer in den Abruzzen gewachsen, Masciarelli, Marramiero, Santoleri ecc ecc.

Im Herbst 2012 ist das Studio fertig gestellt worden, noch ist die zweite Aussenhaut fertig zu stellen, das geschieht im Frühjahr 2013.

Das Haus verfügt über eine effektive Heizung/Klimaanlage und dazu über einen kleinen Holzofen.

Draussen steht ein traditioneller kleiner Pizzaofen, perfekt fürs Grillen oder Backen.

Darüber hinaus wärmt der gemauerte Ofen an kühlen Abenden wenn man länger draussen sitzen möchte.

Guest Access

The house is fully equipped with kitchen, bathroom ecc. Whatever is needed on top - just ask and we ´ll see what can be done. A bicycle or two? - available.

About
We fell in love with the Abruzzi in 1996, bought a house and from the beginning, we knew, one day we will be living here. In 2006 the dream came true, we now live here permanently. The Studio Mare Monti was first built to become a studio for Barbara - she is an artist. But soon, we realized - this is a magic spot, that needs to become a second home. Myself, I am busy with writing equipment, mainly fountain pens - I restore and sell vintage collectable pens - and I build modern hand made pens on my own. My passions - pens of course and cooking. Abruzzo is a dreamland for passionate cooking, perfect fresh food on the markets, truffels, olive oil, red and white wine...
