“Great place to escape and enjoy down time, beautiful surroundings and relaxation.”

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. Dougie and Michelle were excellent hosts - very helpful, informative and non intrustive. Very knowledgable and obliging.
Apartment was spacious, modern, really comfortable and complete with all faciliites (including outdoor bbq!).
Beautiful surrounding area - mountains, lakes, parks etc. Great place to escape and enjoy down time, clean nature and relaxation.

Both Dougie and Michelle enhanced our stay by being excellent hosts. Their apartment was all we expected and more in terms of decor, locality and comfort. The area around their location offers a lot to do and is in a beautiful setting especially with the views of the mountains in the morning and setting sun in the evening. There was nothing that we lacked and their unobtrusive help and support guided us to get the best from all that was available. We could not thank them enough for a memorable and wonderful holiday.

“Fantastic”

Superb location, superb accommodation and superb hosts. Clean accommodation with all the facilities we needed. We loved the ruralness of the apartment, to wake up to a view of the mountains every morning is something we will never forget.

The owners/hosts couldn't be more friendly or helpful if they tried. Nothing was too much trouble for them, we asked for some basic provisions for our first night which was just right to get us in the “Italian mood”.

Sulmona is about 5 minutes by car and has supermarkets, restaurants and the usual amenities. Further afield Lake Scanno is a superb place for an afternoon (or even a day if you take a picnic) of swimming and relaxing.

All in all, a great place with great people, thank you Dougie and Michele.

This is a well equipped, spotlessly clean apartment in a great location with excellent views. The lovely town of Sulmona is nearby with all your needs catered for, restaurants, supermarkets, bars etc. However what makes this place is the owners' welcome. This lovely couple go well beyond expectations to look after you with a tour of their vineyard and wine making cantina, top advice on things to see and generous gifts of incredibly fresh produce from their garden. They made our holiday.
