Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great week!! What a great place to stay. We used Le Galelle as a base to explore Abruzzo Molise/Marche. The apartment is 100% user friendly. It has everything one could want-nothing lacking. Monica & Simon are perfect hosts just unbelievable. Mike & Nancy Philadelphia, USA.

The Fantastic time spent here was made up of great discoveries from the monument we arrived till the monument we had to go back. The Abruzzo region is gorgeous, definitely one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Your warm hospitality made us feel at home and information you provided was very helpful. Thank You for helping to make a perfect holiday. Paul, Karmela, Natan, Laka & Anan, Gent Belgium.

Simon & Monica are such good and helpful hosts. The apartment must have just about the best views in the world and Abruzzo is a real discovery altogether. “Great holiday” “Thank You” Mike, Lyn & Sue. Somerset, England.

super spacious and clean and central location

  • 5 of 5

We were offerend a warm welcome by friendly owners Monica and Simon on our arrival, late one evening as they helped us order the most delicious pizza's. Throughout our stay we had the loveliest conversations and enjoyed a play with their cute son Reggi. Simon and Monica were always at hand for good advise on local visits and practicalities. The house is super clean with huge rooms all with balconies and equipped with everything you need and more. The location is ideal; close to motorway and airport, yet quiet in the middle of olive groves and centrally located within easy driving distance between the beautiful national parks and the coast.

Difficult to beat

  • 5 of 5

Surpassed all our expectations. Two balconies, both overlooking stunning views, and providing sun or shade depending on what we wanted. Plunge pool perfect to cool off. Lovely outside garden space with loungers, chairs, table, etc. Bikes available from the owner, free of charge - brilliant to ride to local hill town and round about. Car definitely needed - we drove to various starting points for a variety of beautiful walks - lots of hills, not for softies, but simply gorgeous surroundings. Visited the obvious local towns/cities - not a single disappointment. Simon and Monica could not have been more friendly and helpful. A perfect holiday, thank you both.
