Il Marchese del Grillo exceeded all our expectations. My mother was born in Sulmona and this was our third trip together to her hometown. Instantly upon arrival, with Marta's warm and welcoming greeting at the front door, I knew we had chosen well. This place is paradise. Lovingly renovated by Marta and her husband, no detail has been overlooked. From... More

I have read all of the reviews and each one is exactly true. I lived near Sulmona as a child and remembered this lovely town surrounded by incredible mountains. After so many years I went back for the first time and was not dissapointed. One of the highlights was staying at Marta's B&B. This is better than a 5 star... More

Fantastic B&B located in the center of Sulmona. Marta is a fantastic host with great information on restaurants, shopping, things to do, and sights in the surrounding countryside. She also let's those with limited Italian language skills do their best with practicing! The roof top terrace is also a great place to unwind and have a glass of wine before... More

I stayed three nights in Sulmona last September and I had a truly exceptional stay at the Marchese del Grillo B&B. The house itself is charming and full of beautiful objects chosen with fine taste by the owners. The bedroom was very comfortable. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was great. And, the owners are just splendid –very generous, very welcoming.... More

My wife and I travelled to Sulmona from Rome and stayed for only one night in this exquisite B&B; I wish we could have stayed a lot longer! The owner, Marta, greeted us warmly and could not have been more helpful and informative. She is obviously very proud of her home and her town and imparted a lot of knowledge,... More

We stayed in Sulmona for a couple of nights. If we had know how pretty this area is and how good Marta's B&B is then we would have stayed longer. I am sitting here trying to think about what I would do to improve the B&B.... nothing! 10 out of 10 Marta. We will stay again when we are back... More

We stayed 3 nights at Marta's B&B and were very impressed. The B&B is located in the heart of Sulmona's medieval old town, full of atmosphere and very well appointed. Marta provides an exceptional service, with beautiful large rooms, reasonably priced with an excellent breakfast. She will also provide you with information on what to see in the town and... More

Don't let the poor view of the little alley to misslead you. when you go inside , you find you fantasy world. Each room ( of te 4 in total) is a different dream, and you just have to choose. We had Olimpia for 2 nights. It's with a balcony to the alley, can have some noise. But so beutifull.... More
