We were very impressed with this beautiful brand new high-tech house resurrected from the ruins of an old structure. The location among farmed fields made for a quiet etremely relaxing experience. The house was spotless and the owners attentive. The kitchen was well appointed with every convenience except a microwave. Welcoming coffee, wine and cookies awaited our arrival. We highly recommend the property and if ever return to this part of Italy we would definitely come here.


Casa super confortevole con spazi immensi che consentono agli ospiti di stare insieme ciascuno con la propria privacy. Luogo meraviglioso immerso nella natura dove regnano pace e tranquillità in un clima fresco e ventilato. Lo consiglio vivamente a gruppi e famiglie numerose amanti di vacanze all'insegna di sole mare grigliate e buon vino.

Davide V, 

We have been renting houses in Europe for more than twenty years. Seeking a longer stay, we had most pleasant exchanges with Helene and Carlo, who graciously agreed to rent their beautiful home for three months this past winter. We have stayed in fine villas in France, Spain and Italy, but this is our favorite. Surrounded by lush fields (even in winter), the house offers incredible views. Daily we enjoyed the sight of snow covered mountains just over the line in Abruzzo (amazing sunsets), while the Adriatic glimmered to the north. The house is very attractive, comfortable and welcoming with three modern baths, an excellent functional kitchen (we are serious cooks) and plenty of sleeping space. The upstairs bedrooms are at either end of the house, offering privacy when we had guests. With an open concept, this is a brilliant and practical renovation. Photos do not capture the charm. Location is ideal for exploring Molise, Abruzzo and Puglia, with a high speed Autostrada a few kilometers from the house. We especially enjoyed the historic walled town and fishing port, Termoli, which is on some short lists of the best food towns in Italy. Our favorite restaurant there, Trattoria Tipica L'Opera, via Addriatica, run by a friendly family. Nearby Vasto has many fine restaurants, a pretty historic center and panoramic views of the Abruzzi and Molise coast.Other towns not to be missed: Agnone (famous bell foundry and perched on a picturesque ridge), Campobasso and historic Lanciano. Do eat at Locanda Mami just outside Agnone, with a brilliant young chef, Stefania, who blends traditional recipes with modern techniques. Great food at very fair prices. This area is unspoiled rural farm country, but the food culture is sophisticated and varied. Along the coast the most fresh and perfect seafood is served, while elsewhere grass fed lamb, beef and poultry are prepared traditionally. The area proudly produces great wine, cheese and sausage, as well as truffles. We found the food in Molise to be as good as in France, with much lower prices. Wine from San Zenone Coop in town is exceptional! This is a superlative house and area. Carlo and Helene and their extended family welcomed us and are now friends. Locals are welcoming and friendly. This was the vacation of a lifetime - we plan to return. Recommended without reservation!

Abbiamo trascorso 3 GG nella splendida villa del sig.CARLO e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Abbiamo veramente trovato quello che cercavo! Una struttura bella, curata nei dettagli ed attrezzata di tutto. La consigliamo vivamente . GRAZIE....ANGELO & COMPANY.... :)


This is a great holiday home - the pictures on the website do not do it justice. It is spacious and provides a fantastic place to relax. The views are outstanding and getting to excellent local beaches is easy. The historical town of Vasto is a gem and Termini and Lanciano are well worth visiting. We would love to visit again.

Le cadre enchanteur où est installé la maison au milieu d’un pays vallonné et verdoyant invite les visiteurs à passer d’agréables et paisibles vacances. C’est à 3 km environ de Montenero di Bisaccia, une petite jolie ville perchée en haut d’une monticule de Molise. Certes, la maison n’offre aucun jardin ombragé ou de semblable à part une vue à 360° sur le pays environnant, mais à l’intérieur, elle a tout d’une grande; une vraie habitation pouvant accueillir une famille ou deux, de 8 à 9 personnes avec tout le confort que l’on souhaite avoir. Ce fut une ancienne maison rénovée avec des matériaux de qualité et agencée d’un ameublement moderne et agréable. Grosso-modo : 4 grandes chambres à coucher, 3 salles de bain et un immense salon faisant des 250 m2 habitables un réel plaisir pour y séjourner périodiquement ou pour toujours. La plage longue de plusieurs km est à 10 km de là. Termoli, une belle et agréable ville est à 25 km. A ne pas oublier enfin de signaler que la propreté des lieux (l’habitation) est irréprochable. Grand merci aux propriétaires d’avoir l’amabilité de louer ce type de maison aux touristes occasionnels, autrement ça ne serait pas évident./// Sehr schönes, modernes grosses Haus. Sehr freundliche Vermieter. Wir, Familie mit Kindern haben eine wunderschöne Woche in diesem Haus verbracht. Absolut empfehlenswert!!//Very beautiful and big house! Lovely people! We highly recommend this address!!

claudine M, 

We spent a month in this lovely house and were joined by my daughter, son in law and (almost) 3 year old granddaughter for 10 ten days of the stay. We all loved Montenero, Molise and the Villa Masseria so much that we would love to return next year. The generosity and friendliness of the local people has to be experienced to be believed and the views from the house and all around are truly breathtaking. We have travelled over many parts of Italy but are in no doubt that this is the one we will return to and Villa Masseria will be our first choice of accommodation. Clean, uncluttered and well equipped, we can't fault it. Thank you Helene and Carlo for a wonderful experience.


Il nostro soggiorno presso Villa Masseria e' stato davvero perfetto. All'arrivo la casa era pulitissima, ben attrezzata e dotata di tutti i confort. Alessia, che ci ha accolto, e' sempre stata disponibile e molto collaborativa. La casa rifletteva la descrizione presente sul sito di Homelidays, era molto spaziosa e fresca. La posizione era veramente tranquilla, immersa nelle dolci colline molisane. Abbiamo passato 15 giorni in villa Masseria, ma la vacanza e' davvero volata. Consiglieri sicuramente questa casa a chi volesse passare una vacanza in Molise vicino al mare

Gabriella P, 

We did stay in this lovely house for a week during our winter vacation and we totally loved it. Our honest opinion is that there was no single thing that we can mention as a negative. The house is perfectly decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. A great practice advantage is that the house is powered by solar panels and you do not need to worry about the electricity and hot water. Everything you would need for a week stay is available. The owners Helene and Carlo were lovely – they welcomed us and gave us detailed instructions on what is worth seeing and visiting, restaurants recommendations, etc. We did have a wonderful week there and if there is ever a chance to return – we will return! Thank you, Helene and Carlo!


Carlo e Helene ci hanno accolti nella loro casa nei migliori dei modi ,persone corrette e molto disponibili, luogo incantevole situato nel mezzo di magnifiche colline, la casa descritta corrisponde alle foto del sito ed è molto confortevole ,spaziosa ed accessoriata, con buona mobiglia la strada per arrivare alla casa non è difficoltosa- casa adatta a piu nuclei famigliari.
