We had the great pleasure in staying at Denise and Davids' wonderful Casa Borrega in the foothills below Castel Frentano in the Abruzzo region of Italy.
Especially good is the games room, with a high quality pool table and dart board. The pool was very popular, too.
Key memories were trekking along the nearby recently-abandoned railway line located above the Casa, but below Castel Frentano; this gave us a fairly unique opportunity to see the region by foot - straight to Lanciano - take the right hand track as you walk up from the Casa to Castel Frentano (8km or so). I made it my duty to impart words of wisdom to my kids in a Morgan-Freeman voiceover style, while taking occasional refreshment from the frequent trackside bars - fantastic for me, as they were a captive audience!
You are very much left alone, so it's your responsibility to keep the pool clean and appropriately be-chemicaled (keep the PH up, and the chlorine right and vacuum the pool floor!) - myself and my Father had this as our daily "man chore". Do not expect a daily maid service.
Food was almost invariably excellent, although potentially pricey if you're not careful - supermarkets are not cheap, merely convenient. We derived more pleasure from using the local markets and shops and interacting with the locals over small cups of coffee (until 10am), or beer and wine (after that time).
Police (in various guises) are everywhere, so don't be tempted to drive anywhere after a good lunch (not that you would, of course)
Overall an excellent and relaxing holiday - we would not hesitate to recommend Casa Borrega - especially to an adventurous and multi age-group family....
