“All in all a thoroughly fabulous place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We stayed here for a full week to snowboard and search for local property. Perfect location, just a 5 min walk into the town. Welcome was fantastic, relaxed, couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was lovely every day. Room even nicer than the website suggests (as is the hotel as a whole). Although the hotel is 3 years old, it looks like its only a couple of months old- well kept, pristine condition, comfortable yet funky. The log fire always roaring in reception after a long day in the snow! Fridge in the room is also a real bonus.
Our only crticism would be the room we had was right next to reception/main corridor entrance/lift. This in itself wouldn't have been a problem had it not been for some other guests selfishly dragging suitcases along the tiled floors early in the morning, stomping along the corridors in heavy boots and shouting down the corridors. The hotel is also very family friendly but again, this was abused by parents not keeping young children from running up and down the corridor and shouting until past 11pm, despite signs requesting otherwise. Not really the hotel's fault I guess though. All in all a thoroughly fabulous place, would also happily visit in Summer.

Room Tip: Avoid room 101 as this is right next to reception/main corridor entrance/lift/back door entrance and...

Very refined hotel (B&B but they have an agreement with a restaurant just the other side of the road), cosy and charming in neo-Alpine style. Ideal for families with children and aged people (lift and big terrace where grannies can spend the day reading and young children can play in enchanting backyard garden). Very friendly and discreet welcoming. Ideal to discover hiking in the nearby parco nazionale d'Abruzzo and ideal to get there with own car in winter (spacious parking space with direct connection to garage and lift). Cherry on the top: small library and traditional games in the spacious living with fireplace! Maybe the best hotel facility in the Abruzzi.

Room Tip: Some rooms at sunny terrace level

apologies for the late and written english review but I had to make sure I provided great things to say for this place! We couldn't have been happier, the owners were amazing and made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. They truly went out of their way for us and made our 2011 new year and friend's 30th birthday extra special. I would highly recommend this place to everyone considering staying in this area, wait till you taste the breakfast cakes!
