Guestbook comments from the owner

We are three families from Norway who has been in Italy on vacation the last 10 years. This is the best rental home we have ever had. the villa was perfectly clean, beautifully decorated and conveniently furnished. the view was amazing, and the surroundings stunning. The beach and interesting sites where all in reach.

We recommend the property to all, families, couples, young, old, for those who love both the sea and the mountains!

Beautifully situated with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

The property is a drive from the nearest town but definitely worth it. We were greeted by the friendly and helpful caretaker. The property sleeps 4 very comfortably: the other 2 sleep on a mezzanine above the sitting room which is cosy but up steep steps, and has a low ceiling. The 2 bedrooms are both en suite and have their own little kitchens, but we used the main kitchen and ate together at the spacious dining table or outside on the patio ( don't forget your mosquito repellant). There are fans and air conditioning throughout. The pool is circular, fine for a dip, but not for any serious swimming.

There are plenty of things to do in the surrounding area and several good restaurants in driving distance. The nearby towns are lovely, with narrow streets and interesting places to explore.

We had a very enjoyable and restful week there and would certainly go back

A magical aspect in the heart of Italy

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse is situated on hill overlooking Torre de Passeri and the surrounding valley that provides a wonderful, relaxing aspect to wake up to in the morning. Davide and Alessandra were very welcoming and even invited us to view the grape harvest in their neighbouring vineyard...a wonderful experience. The house is charming, clean and comfortable and has all the necessary conveniences of heating/air-conditioning depending on what season you decide to stay. There was also more space than I anticipated which as great for traveling with my family including my 10 month-old baby. A car is generally required to enjoy the surrounding towns in the hills and also to reach Pescara and the beach. The only difficulty was that there was not much English-language information for a stay of a week (ie. where to put the garbage)- although the housekeeper Guliana was very helpful otherwise. Overall a fantastic Abruzzo experience and I would definitely like to return for another visit next year. Thank you Davide and Alessandra.

Komfortable Unterkunft mit traumhafter Aussicht.

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wunderschöne Woche hier. Das Haus war tadellos unterhalten und alles was wir benötigten war vorhanden. Vorallem gefiel uns die traumhaft schöne Aussicht in die Hügel der Abruzzen, die ruhige Lage, der nette Pool, die aufmerksame Betreuung durch die Hausverwalterin, die interessante Umgebung mit vielen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten zu Kultur und Natur und die vielen netten Restaurants der Umgebung, die herrliche Köstlichkeiten zu servieren wussten. Das Haus war sauber, gut unterhalten und wir können es jedermann mit gutem Gewissen empfehlen. Wir hoffen bald wieder zurückzukehren.

Super feriebolig, smuk beliggenhed

  • 5 of 5

Dejligt, fredeligt ophold med en fantastisk udsigt over mod Maiella bjergene, og med et hus med alle nødvendige faciliteter og lidt til, især når man kun er to. Gode indkøbsmuligheder i byen. Man skal dog køre lidt for at finde gode restauranter. Der var fint og rent da vi kom, og der var god service fra udlejer og dennes housekeeper.

Vi kan anbefale en tur til/rundt om Maiella naturreservatet, hvor der selv i juli var lidt sne at se på toppen. Ligeledes kan en tur til feriebyen Pescara ved Adriaterhavet anbefales.

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable, grâce à l'accueil et à la discrétion des personnes sur place pour nous accueillir, grâce au lieu qui est magnifique : la vue à 360° mais également au confort ainsi qu'a la décoration de chaque pièce, aux jolies terrasses et la piscine. Tout est parfait pour passer un merveilleux séjour dans ce joli coin d'Italie. Nous recommandons vivement et reviendrons avec grand plaisir. (le prix est à la hauteur de la prestation).

From the Owner

The peaceful location on a hill regarding an open valley, the surrounding mountains covered with snow most of the year and the simple inexpensive lifestyle we experience here during our weekends are contrasting our frenetic days in Rome.
