“A magical experience.”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

From our meeting with David ( en route after midnight following a delayed flight )until our reluctant departure , kindly extended by several hours, this was a wonderful holiday. The marvelous location in a beautiful area of Italy, almost unknown to tourism; the delightful and imaginative accommodation, clean and comfortable ; owners for whom nothing was too much trouble; the friendly and helpful Abruzzi; a superb pool.....not to mention the fascinating villages, majestic mountains, and abundance of good food and drink.....
David and Pauline, thank you for a magical week. Well worth a ten star rating!

“Fabulous - as ever!”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our third visit to this fabulous villa and it was every bit as great as before. We decided on a sneaky week in September and were rewarded with fantastic weather, 35+ degrees every day and 40 on a couple. David and Pauline were wonderful hosts as ever and ensured that our stay was wonderful. Whilst their hosting is great, they make the little touches that make a difference. The beers, lemons and other goodies that await the guests add that final touch.
We love this area and for a peaceful holiday amongst wonderful scenery and the lovely Italians this is a place to come. We cannot recommend highly enough and if you are considering coming tomItaly, come here!

“Back again!”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Well what can I say that every review has not said before, This is our THIRD stay at villas for 2 so you could say we like it here. Once again everything was perfect. This place really is as good as all the reviews say. David and Pauline are lovely hosts, always on hand to help. The villa was spotlessly clean as usual and there was a nice cold bottle of house white wine waiting in the fridge upon our arrival. Once again we enjoyed a lovely relaxing holiday, stunning landscapes and great food. We will be back.

“Wonderfully relaxing and a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

David and Pauline were there to welcome us on our arrival and were extremely helpful, always on hand to provide excellent local knowledge on places to visit (e.g. the roman ruins), where to shop (a good local supermarket and a top rate winery) and places to eat (ask them about the two courses with wine and coffee for 10 euros a head restaurant!).
The villas are neatly arranged and ours was spotlessly clean. It had everything we needed for our stay. The pool is great. Right next to our villa and an olive grove, it was not too warm, so very refreshing when its hot, and with wonderful views over the hills.

“Total relaxation.”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

It's difficult to be objective when you stay in a place for 10 days and come away completely relaxed and feeling you have made friends with the owners. Anyway, here goes. The location and views are superb. The villa was spotlessly clean, comprehensively fitted out and well supplied. The swimming pool was also maintained to perfection. David & Pauline did everything they could to make us welcome and to allow us to enjoy our holiday. Abruzzo is a fascinating region and apparently undiscovered by Brits (good). We were able to do so many different things, from wandering around almost deserted hill towns, browsing markets, paddling in the Adriatic, walking to the tops of mountains from where you could see for miles, sunbathing, swimming, eating....you get the idea! The ONLY slight downside is that for total peace and tranquility you are at the mercy of the other couples in the two adjoining villas. We were lucky to have good neighbours during our stay and at least there are no children! We would definitely return if we were in the area again.

Thanks for the great review - very much appreciated. *Never* any danger of having your holiday here spoiled by other people's kids. We're the *only* holiday rental in all Abruzzo that's always exclusively for couples and guaranteed kids-free !
(And our guests - and your neighbours - are invariably as nice and considerate as you two both were !)
