inside and outside the villa

We will always remember our time gathered in a villa in Abruzzo. It was our base from which we began to explore Abruzzo and connect with family. From the living room the local village sat on a nearby hill, the Adriatic Ocean covered the horizon out front and the Gran Sasso National Park's snow capped mountains completed the vista to the left.

The villa was our home, we cooked, talked, slept and reconnected with the world via our devices at the end of the days adventures.
