This is the 4th year I am spending a vacation at the Giardino del Rio in Castel di Sangro.
The lively town is a great place for me to bring my 80 years old mom and spend some quality time with her (I live in the US and she lives in Naples).
The town is great for older people because is all flat while surrounded by astonishingly high and beautiful mountains.
The Giardino del Rio is in a perfect spot in a quiet street and to reach the center of town is a 10 minutes pleasant stroll. Enzo and Paola (owners of the pensione and of the ristorante where you can set the full board or half board) are the most gracious, nice and honest people in the turist business I've ever met! We feel always welcomed and they are always striving to please the customer, not matter what the request is! The structure itsself is a beautiful building, built with modern criteria for a green environment and less carbon footprint.
My mom and I are both thrilled every summer to go back and see them and stay at their hotel/pensione and eat at their restaurant (always fresh and home made food!).
I highly recommend the place!More
