Full description:

A wonderful villa which is located in a glorious position. It nestles in the hills of Francavilla al Mare only 5 minutes from the resort's sandy beaches, shops, bars and restaurants and just 15 minutes away from Pescara town and airport.

A special feature of the villa is the brilliant combination of a fabulous detached house and its location. It has a large plot of 2,5 hectares with its own pine forest, a grove with 300 olive trees and an orchard. All this so close to the centre of Pescara.

The villa was built after it was individually designed and dedicated to the eldest daughter of Luciano Pilot, Alexandra by name. Not only was Luciano Pilot famous as the first distributor of the Benetton Company and one of the main sponsors of the Italian team of Formula 1, but also as one of the most outstanding patrons of arts of his time.

This fascinating two-storeyed villa has got a big garage, three bedrooms, a luxurious living-room, a cosy dining-room, a kitchen with a fire-place in it and a barbecue outdoors. From the bedroom on the second floor and the solarium on the roof one can enjoy a beautiful view of spectacular seascapes.

The villa is surrounded with an olive grove, a pine forest, rosemary bushes and blossoming rhododendrons.

In a 30 minute drive from the villa there are ski resorts and thermal springs.

The villa was renovated in 2016 when a new heating system was installed and the rooms were redecorated.
Its location so close to the sea, plenty of greenery, unforgettable panoramic views make the villa attractive for purchasing.

It can be used for both permanent stay and for being turned into a hotel - restaurant.

Also it is ideal for eco-tourism.

The villa is spread over several levels and accommodation includes:

Ground floor - living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, veranda, terraces, storage rooms, solarium and porch.

First floor - circular bedroom with panoramic window, two bathrooms and terrace.

Basement - tavern with a central fireplace, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, closets and garage.

The finishes are of high quality with carpeted floors and parquet, aluminIum frames with double glazing, alarm system, heating, air conditioning.

Francavilla has been a popular seaside resort since the 1800s and boasts one of the finest, sandy beaches on the Abruzzo coast. Its population exceeds 24,000 and the town offers plenty of restaurants, bars and shops for both holiday makers and inhabitants to enjoy.

It is situated between the rivers of Alento and Foro and the ancient part of the town developed on a hill, overlooking the Adriatic. Although rich in historical, artistic and architectural heritage, much of the centre was destroyed during WW2 and has since been rebuilt.

The town is home to many festivals and events during the year, the most famous is the Fireworks on the Sea which takes place, each August. The pyrotechnics, which attract large crowds, illuminate the night sky, sea and sand.

There is a wide, purpose-built esplanade which runs next to the beautiful beach. It is perfect for walking, jogging and gentle cycling. There are many Lidos which border the pathway serving cold drinks, ice creams and an impressive choice of fresh seafood. Great for lunch!

Francavilla's central location makes it a perfect base for exploring the Mountain Parks, Trabocchi Coast and the bustling town of Pescara which is minutes away by bus or train. It is even possible to walk!

Our services

We promote property for sale in Abruzzo and Molise on behalf of our network of Italian estate agents, all of whom are registered with the FIAIP (Federazione Italiana Agenti Immobilliari Professionali), which is the industry’s governing body. This ensures that all documents and the final contract, in relation to your purchase, will fully comply with Italian laws and provide you with complete protection.

We also market property on behalf of private property owners who may wish to deal with us directly for ease of language and locality. One of our local colleagues can visit the property to take photographs and prepare a property description, if required. Once again, the contract will be overseen by an FIAIP agent, ensuring peace of mind.

Once you decide to purchase a property and contact us, our sales team will analyse your detailed property requirements before conducting a thorough search of all the properties that might suit. The next stage is normally a trip to Abruzzo and Molise, not only to view a selection of these properties, but to relax and enjoy the local ambience.

We can even put you in touch with companies specialising in Italian mortgages, if required.
