“lovely visit in the valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

we had a lovely stay in N'avelli in September. Jimmy and Francesca were delightful hosts - eager for us to have a good experience and willing to share their knowledge of the region. Jimmy fixed us yummy eggs with fresh herbs and we took some fresh off the tree pears for the last leg of our journey. They were able to answer lots of questions we had about the economy, life style and foods of their valley which enhanced our travels. The room was comfortable and clean, the bath was as well. If you are looking for a place to stay that connects you with the people and culture you cant go wrong with Abruzzo Segreto Navelli.

My wife and I spent 2 nights there and really enjoyed our stay.This is a lovely and cosy B&B owned by charming and friendly people Francesca and Jimmy ( like me a frustrated Arsenal supporter ! ).It is situated in Navelli a beautiful medieval hill-top village in the heart of a stunningly beautiful region Abruzzo, 40 minutes'drive from Sulmona in the south and places well worth exploring further north like Santo Stefano,Rocca Calascio and Castel del monte.We loved it.

I have stayed with Jimmy & Francesca previously, their warm welcome and comfortable B&B is always a treat to be looked forward to! They freely give you the best of their knowledge and experience to ensure you make the most of your stay whether it is to connect with a lost family heritage or to explore all that Abruzzo has to offer be it food, culture, nature or history you will not be disappointed!!
Abruzzo Segreto is always clean, the breakfasts are perfect for the hungry traveller and the rooms comfortable and restful!!

Room Tip: Just advise what you require Jimmy & Francesca will take care of the rest!

Abruzzo Segreto is a beautiful home in a small medieval hill town 1 1/2 hours east of Rome, not unlike many B&B's all around Italy. But what makes this B&B so special are the hosts - Jimmy & Francesca. It was easy to make my reservation through email. We were greeted cordially and shown to a beautiful room with a fantastic updated bathroom. The entire place is clean, comfortable and well-run, but able to feel like home to us outsiders. They gave us information about surrounding towns and things to see while regaling us with story after story. Francesca is sweet and very talented. Jimmy has an arsenal of humorous stories and anecdotes. It was the perfect place to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. We can't wait to return and perhaps spend more than just three nights at our favorite place in Italy.

My husband and I have been traveling throughout the Abruzzo region for the past few days. We have had great luck with our accomodations but we felt extremely lucky to have stayed the night at Abruzzo Segreto in Navelli. Jimmy and Francesca are the ultimate hosts, friendly, gracious and helpful in all ways. Their B&B is charming, clean and comfortable. Jimmy entertained us with his stories and great sense of humor, Francesca charmed us with her warm smile and incredible knowledge about the interesting sights throughout Abruzzo. This is a definite return for us!!!

I wanted to stay in the Abruzzo region during our Italian holiday as I had read a book set in this area. The excellent reviews I read of B&B Abruzzo Segreto when searching for accommodation prompted me to book a room there and we were not disappointed! I had booked a triple room but were given 2 rooms so our teenage daughter had her own space. The rooms were clean and airy overlooking the garden with a shared bathroom.
Francesca and Jimmy were wonderful hosts, happily sharing their knowledge of the region and recommending places to eat and visit. The village of Navelli is fascinating to walk around, and we had a wonderful long day out in the car, stopping for walks around ancient villages, a castle and in the national park. Such a great day after being in busy tourist spots for the previous week.
And yes, we thoroughly enjoyed Jimmy's scrambled eggs in the morning and the rest of the very generous breakfast. Thank you Jimmy and Francesca.

This was our second time in six months to the property. We were even more happy this time around... From their personal recommendations of places to visit, eat and drink in the area to personally ensuring that even during the very hot days we could find great places to spend our time. They took us to a beautiful refuge in the mountains... And to places we never would have fousn on our own. Their rooms and overall space are so warm and welcoming. We brought 10 people this time around and all of us believe it's one of the most special places we've ever been because of the personal service and connections. I look forward to many future visits to the Abruzzo Segreto Navelli. Bravo to this property!!!!
