La Grande Quercia B&B is situated within the rolling hills of Abruzzo, a short drive from the bustling provincial capital of Teramo. Our house is surrounded by farmland and was once the primary farmhouse for all of the land around us. We are not sure when the house was originally built, but we have found some dates scratched on the brickwork and imprinted on the inside of some of the old roof tiles, which lead us to believe its’ origins date from around 1880.
We have arranged the house into three parts. On the one side is our home, on the other, through a connecting door, the main area of the B&B. and the third space is the independent Bella Vista Suite
Entering past the stunning oak tree you are welcomed into the house. The ground floor space comprises our reception, a lounge where you can relax in the evening on the comfortable sofa’s with a glass of wine and a good book. We will greet you each morning in the breakfast area with fresh coffee, juices and a selection of fresh pastries, breads and yogurts. We are more than happy to cater for any specific dietary needs and just ask we be notified in advance of your stay.
On the first floor are three en-suite bedrooms. We have two Classic double bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms, with a fully stocked honesty bar. The third is our Superior Classic double bedroom. This room has a larger en-suite bathroom with a beautifully tiled walk-in shower and stunning views looking out to the mountains.
An eco-freiendly salt chlorinated heated swimming pool is available for you to enjoy. It is located in a sheltered position, offering privacy and quiet - perfect for sunbathing on days where you don’t wish to venture out.
Large pool towels are provided free of charge
