A lovely house in a great location. Just a couple of minutes walk to the main piazzas, but just far enough to be reasonably quiet in the evenings. Judy and James were incredibly helpful, helping to organise our transfers, and meeting us on arrival to give us a tour of the town.
Vasto is a lovely place; it felt incredibly safe and friendly, with loads of restaurants, cafes, gelatarias and shops. The beach at Marina di Vasto was great - stretches for miles with really clean sea. Sunbeds are available to rent daily if needed, but there's a beach umbrella provided in the apartment so not a requirement!
We would definitely recommend a visit - it's a great place to get away from it all, and experience a slice of real Italy. Just remember to bring your Sunday best for some people watching and aperitifos every evening!
Spent a week here in July. Casa was just as described. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Brilliant location. James and Judy were excellent hosts. Would certainly recommend staying here.

Centrally located, the casa is close to the many bars, restaurants in the historical centre. Vasto is a beautiful place where you can experience "real" Italy. We walked to the beach most days, with a stop at the gelateria for the best ice cream before getting the bus back up to the Piazza. In the evening, we enjoyed apperitivos while relaxing in one of the bars before having a nice meal in one of the various restaurants. Some evenings we stayed in and cooked our own seafood spaghetti with mussells and other shellfish collected from the beach!
Judy and James were fantastic hosts - very helpful with information both before our stay and while there.
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.
