Judy & James could not be better hosts and the 28 page booklet you get before you arrive certainly helps you maximise all the sights and food&drink opportunities.
Their Casa is ideally placed in the historic centre so everything in within walking distance and there are many, many restaurants/bars where you can get great food at reasonable prices. The Aperitiv is a great way to start the evening with an Aperol Spritz and nibbles, this cocktail may just about replace Pimms on hot days. It was great not having a car and their driver Franco picks you up and returns you in an air-con MPV. Less hassle and an opportunity to see the countryside and vast fields of vines and olives. Highly recommended.
Brilliantly located in the historic town of Vasto, this house has everything you need. Owners Judy & James provide all the usual amenities plus more, including beach towels, an umbrella and a cool bag for your trips to the beach, which is only a 10 minute bus ride away. When you get to the beach you can swim in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic and go for a stroll along the smooth sand.
Talking of Judy & James, their local knowledge is great, particularly when it comes to recommending restaurants - we had some fantastic meals out in Vasto, trying the local specialities as well as some massive pizzas.
Overall our family had a great week here - we'll definitely be back!
The house was in an excellent position, in the centre of the historic, beautiful town of Vasto. Ideal for a family of four we were minutes from excellent restaurants, local shops, market & historic sights. You can walk down to the local beach, which is golden sand & clear water, where you can see the fish swimming, & get the bus back. Although little English is spoken here that is part of the charm & even my teenagers were speaking a few words to order food & it all added to the experience. Judy & James were fantastic hosts & gave great restaurant recommendations & arranged for a taxi transfer to & from the airport. This was my second visit to Vasto but first staying in the Casa, I am sure I will be back again there is still so much to explore. Thank you Judy & James.
This was a great stay in a wonderful town. The house was situated in the historic center of town and convenient for all that Vasto offers. We hope to return in the summer. James and Jude offered lots of great help and the home itself was clean, cozy and welcoming.
This is our third trip (and sixth for our eldest daughter) to the picturesque and beautiful town of Vasto. The house we stayed in is in the heart of the historic town and more than met our needs with immediate access to the best to local cafes, restaurants and main Piazza. There is always something going on from festivals to concerts and carnivals as well as an easy walk or bus ride to the beach. Lunch at the Troboco is a must and if you get the chance a trip to the hidden gem of the Tremitti Islands is an unforgetable experience particularly the snorkelling!

First and foremost when Judy confirms your reservation she sends details of Vasto and the house, read them and you will be rewarded, as you will with the folder she leaves you and the advice she gives. Now to the house, wonderfully located for everything you need, a short walk to most restaurants bars sites etc. A well equipped kitchen if you decide to cook but with a vast selection of eateries we didn't bother. Comfy bed, good bathroom and a dining/sitting room. Both Judy and James are virtually on site if you have any problems, they live minutes away. Good parking 5 minutes away, free from 1200/1600 and after 2000 until 0800. There is free parking around but, to be quite honest with the small fee, why bother?
