“Amazing as always”

In the heart of Abruzzo we've found our dream location for relaxing and enjoying life. Villa di Stelle is located just perfect in the mountains where the only thing you hear is the spund of farmers doing what they've been doing for decades. The views are stunning during both day and night, the appartment super cozy and Jo and Chris are better hosts than you could ever wish for, helping out with everything you need - including patience.
We cannot wait to go back again and recommend this place as highly as possible.

“Abruzzo is the most lovely undiscovered place in Italy”
Reviewed May 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

Villa Di Stelle is the perfect place to stay while exploring Abruzzo. We arrived from Rome via car and were delighted upon arriving the house on a hill which is set high above a valley with the most beautiful view of neighboring towns and the mountains.
Our hosts Chris and Joanne met us to provide keys and give a tour of the place and to offer any help with our plans. They quickly left to give us our privacy. The villa is two units and we had the top apartment with roof deck and use of the pool (it was too cold). The apartment has a great kitchen, bathroom, livings areas and large bedroom. The best part was waking up to the sounds and sights of the valley. I miss it already.
Jo helped us with restaurant reservations and suggestions for a couple of days until we got used to the area.
We explored hill towns, seaside towns, archaeological sights and ate the best food. We visited the winery down the street (thank you Sarah at Tilli winery) and had a lovely experience there.
Loved our 4 days in Casoli at this Villa. The photos do not do the place justice by the way!!!

“wonderful place”
Reviewed August 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If we would have any regrets about this place then only that we did not have more time to be there.
The house is situated in a beautiful scenery, all by itself, with a wonderful view on the majella mountains, surrounded by fields and olive groves. In the swimming pool we spent almost as much time at day as on the porch on top of the house in the evening or night. The experience of Joann as an artist shows itself in the stylish and so tasteful interior in every detail. The house breathes the care and love the owners invested in it.
Chris and Joann live in the house next door: the closeness is helpful if any questions arise, yet it is wonderful that both completely respect ones privacy. The contact normally goes through email exchange.Although there were only few occasions we met - on the first and the last day - upon leaving we felt that we had spent our vacation in the house of our best friends.
We cannot imagine a better place to stay and we sure hope to get another opportunity to do that.

“Holiday in paridiso ”

Spent a few days here in early June. Absolutely wonderful spot. The villa is tastefully furnished, spacious and aesthetically perfect. The pool area is exquisite, looking over fields of wheat and olive trees towards a snow capped mountain panarama. The ideal place to chill and get away from it all in splendid comfort. The surrounding towns and villages are charming. Italy at its best. The hosts Jo and Chris are warm, sensitive and delightful. Highly recommend this lovely spot. I will return, sooner rather than later.

“Great villa, amazing views”

We had both floors of the villa. It is well equipped villa throughout with lots of space. The view from the pool and roof terrace of the mountains and hilltop villages is amazing, with plenty of day trips there and to the coast possible. Jo and Chris were great hosts (close by, but left us alone), going the extra mile to help when one of us had a health problem. Overall it was just a great place to spend a week.

“Ambruso bliss”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

We initially intended to stay 5 days but ended up doubling that as the days rapidly passed in this blissful part of Ambruso. There is much to see in the area but the location and comforts and amenities of the Villa Di Stelle are so beautiful that it was hard to budge from the Villa and its wonderful pool and surroundings. Highly recommended for those looking for an enchanting spot to kick back and relax in. Our hosts were suitably charming and discreet and we spent a delightful 10 days there which we hope to repeat soon.

Thanks so much for your wonderful reviews. We love the word 'Ambruso' and think it should be eligible for the Oxford English Dictionary. Very descriptive! We very much hope that you'll be back at Villa di Stelle soon. It was a pleasure to have met you both.
