Il Fienile

A delightful barn conversion next to Casa Marrucina, Il Fienile is ideal for a family or a small group of friends as well as couple on their own wishing to discover this wild and untouched land.  Il Fienile, adjacent to Casa Marrucina, has been renovated and furnished to the same high standard and can be rented either on its own or together with Casa Marrucina.

A splendid large barn, Il Fienile (meaning hay barn) comprises a massive double height sitting room with exposed stone walls, imposing timber beams, large log burning stove, hand-sprung sofas, and fully fitted kitchen and dining area.  There is a galleried library on the mezzanine floor leading to a truly romantic bedroom under the eaves. This has its own small French stove, fabulous tin and copper ‘bateau’ bath, Victorian wash-stand, carved French bed, and a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ balcony looking out over the olive groves.  

Outside is the large swimming pool with pergola and barbecue for al fresco dining and the surrounding views are magnificent. To the south are the mountains of Roccaraso and to the north are the gorgeously attractive olive groves. The Maiella mountain provides a dramatic panorama to the west, and to the east is the Adriatic Sea. The garden has been planted with palms and oleanders, as well as a wealth of fruit trees, rosemary, lavender, cypresses and pines.
