“great villa in a lovely peaceful location”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 for a stay in September 2012
people found this review helpful

The websites are quite confusing for this place - not easy to tell if it's a B&B, separate rooms, whole villa or what. It is actually the full ground floor of the owner's house with private gardens and a lovely large pool that is exclusively for your use.
The villa (for want of a better description) is really nicely appointed & really clean. All the bedrooms lead into the main lounge but also have entrances directly to the gardens (again a bit confusing from the website), and are nicely decorated, light, cool (even when its scorching hot outside) with good modern en-suite bathrooms. The villa is to the rear of the house with fabulous views over the mountains from the patio/pool area and plenty of space for eating outside. It's totally private from the owner's part of the house at the front and on the upper levels. Enzo and Allessandra were really friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to visit, etc.. and brought us some fantastic fresh melon and figs (which I think came from their garden).
Don't worry about the "beware of the Dogs" sign at the gate to the main house - there are three or four or them but all very friendly. They stay in their own garden and the villa has a separate entrance to keep them well away if you're not keen on dogs
The village is an easy 5-10 minute stroll up a quiet road and has a couple of pizzerias and a small restaurant, plus a couple of bars (who all seem to give a few free snacks with your drink!). We were there during their festival so it was full of life with plenty of fireworks, a fair, various church processions, concerts, etc. Decent supermarket on the edge of the village.
Its about a half hour drive from the villa to the best parts of the Majella National Park which is stunning with fantastic walking.
Brilliant weather for 5 days then thunderstorms for two but despite that it was a really relaxing place to stay and as there were only two of us Enzo gave a decent reduction of the full price shown. Go there!

Caro Paolo è stato un vero piacere e gratificante conoscerti insieme alla Elisabetta e i tuoi simpatici "aani" Rocky e Olivia. Siete ospiti che tutti i proprietari sperano di avere: educati, rispettosi delle cose altrui, disponibili, mai invadenti. Ci vedremo presto.
