This past month, we had the amazing experience of having a family reunion in this beautiful villa! Our cousins travelled from all over the world and this place easily accommodated 18 people.
The views from the balcony were just breathtaking! In September we had our pick of grapes, figs, apples, spices for cooking, and more, on a daily basis. Arnie graciously picked full bowls of figs each morning and put them on the table for us in our "community area". All the suites have kitchens; each suite has its own unique flavor and décor. There are laundry facilities and all the conveniences of home. Mike, our host, picked us up at the train station and graciously took us grocery shopping so we could stock the kitchen. He brought us back to the station when we were going home. However, I would have liked the area a little close to our family town of Sulmona. If you had a car, it was no problem; less than 10-minute drive. Unfortunately, we rarely saw the bus that was supposed to be our transportation. Some of the cousins did have cars and that was our transportation. Sulmona is an amazing little city in the Abruzzo region that allows you to experience the "true" Italy. If you've seen the big cities of Rome, Venice, Florence, etc. try Campo di Fano and cities like Sulmona next time. You will have memories for a lifetime!
