Hotel Villa Maria d'Abruzzo is an excellent hotel near the sea in Abruzzo in Italy. Locally inspired cuisine, fab spa and a private section of beach has made this hotel one of Long Travel clients enduring favourites.

Only 10 minutes from Pescara airport and centre, near Francavilla al Mare, behind the modern façade of the Hotel Villa Maria D’Abruzzo lies many a pleasant surprise. Set in 15 acres, on a hill facing the sea, it is immersed in greenery. Lawned gardens give way to olive groves and woods of maritime pines. The lovely swimming pool is on a sunny terrace and leafy arbours provide shade. 

Clients of Long Travel highly praise the food and friendliness of the staff at the Villa Maria D’Abruzzo and we agree. An ideal choice for a short break, or as a base for exploring Abruzzo & Pescara, it is also a wonderful place to stay for Pescara’s annual wine and food festivals, and the famous jazz festival, “Pescara Jazz” (usually July and August).

Elegant, hinting at Art Deco, even the corridors are stylish and relaxing! The bar spills out onto the garden, creating a perfect ambience in summer. The Hotel Villa Maria D’Abruzzo’s restaurant is spacious, with enough glass to make you feel as if you are sitting outside, and in summer, guests may sometimes eat al fresco.

The Hotel Villa Maria d’Abruzzo has an incredibly relaxed atmosphere. The hotel cuisine is emphatically Abruzzese and Mediterranean, based very much on fresh vegetables, succulent meat from the nearby Maiella Mountains, fresh locally caught fish and, in summer, there are regular barbecues put on for guests. At lunchtime, the ‘Easy Lunch’ is very reasonably priced and delicious. It is well worth sampling dinner, too, which is slightly more formal than lunch and has more of a sense of occasion about it. Proof of any good restaurant is whether the locals use it, and when it comes to the Hotel Villa d'Abruzzo, they certainly do!

Hotel Villa Maria D’Abruzzo’s spectacular spa and wellness centre is truly impressive. The wonderful heated indoor pool spills out onto a sunny terrace and is an absolute dream. There is a small gym, sauna and treatment rooms. To add to the long list there is also an emotional shower, where coloured lights soothe your stresses and calm your soul! You’ll never want to leave the romantically relaxing Hotel Villa Maria D’Abruzzo.

However, Hotel Villa Maria D’Abruzzo should carry a health warning! It is addictive, as many Long Travel clients, who return year after year, will testify. Against all your good intentions, you WILL get hooked on its charms, as we all have.

Five minutes from the Villa Maria D’Abruzzo is its own section of private sandy beach. There is a courtesy shuttle bus, which operates quite regularly, and guests will have free use of sunbeds and umbrellas.

Customer Review


“This was an excellent holiday in every way. All of your arrangements worked perfectly, the hotel was first class, the food out of this world, the staff very helpful and obliging. I will definitely want to book with you again and suspect I will be very unadventurous and go to the Villa Maria for a second time. ” Tom, Bedale

"By choosing Villa Maria D’Abruzzo for us, Long Travel have given us ten successive years of wonderful holidays….and many more to come! It is perfect: an open-air breakfast terrace overlooking the sea to start each day; the most beautiful swimming pool we have ever seen, in addition to a private beach; elegant quiet rooms and relaxing evening drinks and dinner in the garden, always looked after by staff who give us the warmest of welcomes. We look forward to it so much every year and Long Travel makes everything so easy. Thank you.” Michael and Amanda, London

"We had a really lovely week at the Villa Maria. You are quite right to highly recommend it and I am so pleased I took your advice. The staff were marvellous and spent a lot of time helping us catch buses and get up into the mountains. The food was really good and we loved our aperitifs in the enchanting gardens. It really is a very relaxing place to stay. I highly recommend Long Travel and the marvellous Villa Maria.”-Carolyn, Watford

“Just to let you know that we had a FABULOUS time at this hotel. It certainly ticks all the boxes, as you rightly said! The rooms were most comfortable and the staff couldn’t be nicer. Thank you for arranging such a lovely holiday. ” Alice, Enquin-S.Baillons, France

“Yet another extremely enjoyable holiday – thank you. Our first visit to Abruzzo, but this will not be our last. We enjoyed absolutely excellent food in the three places we stayed. ” Pamela & Ronald, Newark
