Calascio Accommodations

When most people think of attractions in Italy what often comes to mind is the Colosseum, the leaning tower of Pisa, and Venice, busy crowded places that have lost their magical Italian charm. Most people do not even think about finding a vacation rental accommodation in Central Italy. If you want to flee the crowded streets of Rome or avoid getting hassled by pushy shop owners in Tuscany, then visit the enchanting Province of L'Aquila. Here you can find the same luxurious vacation rentals, such as villas, condo rentals, apartment rentals, and cottages that you would in any of Italy’s major cities but without all the congestion and chaos.

L'Aquila is the least densely populated province in Italy, located in the mountainous region of Abruzzo. This area is not bombarded with curious tourists and therefore the residences of Abruzzo welcome newcomers who want to explore their province and many locals own the apartment rentals and various vacation rentals available from Owner Directs Vacation Rentals.

One of the most captivating villages in L’Aquila is Calascio. You will definitely want to find your villa rental or condo rental accommodations here, so you spend more than one day journeying through this quaint yet majestic hamlet. The homes in this village are peculiarly situated, curling against the base of the Gran Sasso mountains creating a sort of medieval protective wall. The breathtaking backdrop of Calascio is of dominating mountains and vast saffron plains. If you relinquish your villa rental accommodations early enough you may be able to watch the local farmers cultivate their lentil fields or gracious graze their sheep across the mountain side.

A spectacular site in Calascio is the Rocca di Calascio. During the fourteenth century the Rocca di Calascio belonged to Leonello Acclozamora who was at the time the barony of Carapelle. During the Renassiance era, a rocca was used as a watchtower to house military garrison, however the unique octagonal shape of this rocca makes it a must see if you visit Italy. With a wide variety of villa rentals and apartment rentals in and around Calascio, you are sure to find your perfect lodging accommodation.

During your stay at Calascio you must make sure you visit the Church of Santa Maria della Pietà. The Church of Santa Maria della Pieta is a beautiful blanched limestone structure that sits on an apex on your way up to Rocca di Calascio. This awe-inspiring structure can be easily be reached by a gentle, meandering pathway from Calascio. Many villa rentals are situated at the foot of this pathway, making it extremely accessible for the amateur traveler.

You can rest assured that Owner Direct Vacation Rentals will look after all your apartment rental or villa rental needs!

    Abruzzo is the place where Italians go on holiday and it is just the way they like it, off the tourist track and unchanged. 1/3 of the region is national and regional parks; it has 129 kilometres of sandy beaches and 21 ski areas. Villa Maieletta sits in rolling hills with the dramatic backdrop of the Maiella Mountain range, on a quiet country lane close to the historic hill-top town of Palombaro, whose distant church bells provide an evocative reminder of past times. The 2011 movie, “Lost in Italy,” was filmed in Palombaro. Experience the rhythms of rural life around us, from the porchetta van and cafe culture to grape harvest celebrations and Festa month in August. Make the Villa your base for the winter skiing season from December to April. The world class ski resort of Roccaraso, home of the World Junior Championships in 2012, is under an hour away. Retire to your apartment to relax in a luxurious environment of classic Italian splendour or while away an hour on our antique American Pool table. We are situated amidst great cycling and motorcycling country. The Giro D'Italia often visits the area; in 2010 it came within a few kilometres of us. At Villa Maieletta you can be in the mountains in the morning, on the beach in the afternoon, and dine in the countryside under the stars. The Villa is an ideal retreat for couples, those who love the outdoor life and aficionados of architecture and history. For the latest attractions see our Villa Maieletta Facebook page.
