“Perfect hide-hole in a picturesque town”
Reviewed 5 April 2013 for a stay in August 2012

A well presented apartment which is more spacious than it might look from the pictures (for UK readers to whom 70 square metres means little, think 'a large lounge' then double it) certainly bigger than any double room in any hotel you'd find. It's the ideal size for a couple and with the sofabed, you could bring a child as well. Although it has a table and kitchen, you'd be unlikely to use it for anything other than breakfast as it's located within very easy walking distance (2-3 minutes) of the town centre where there are plenty of good restaurants and shops (bring an Italian dictionary though, as not much English is spoken). The beach is a short (but steep) 15 minute walk. The owners are very helpful and the apartment contains a 'dossier' which contains about as much information as you could ever need on the town. The apartment and the town are both hidden gems!

“Fantastic historic centre apartment”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in August 2012

Tastefully furnished and well equipped street level apartment, very centrally located in a quiet and quaint street in the historical old town just, a few steps from the many restaurants, bars, shops, panoramic walkway and places of interest. Can walk down to the nearest beach within 10 minutes. Really lovely welcome by owners who were so informative and helpful. We rented for 5 days visiting villages nearby and enjoyed not having to drive anywhere in the evenings as everything was on our doorstep. We even hosted a dinner party on one night!

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in May 2012

Loved this apartment! Large, really clean, masses of character, and really romantic. It made a great change from the monotony of small modern apartments we usually stay in. It was in the old part of town, so fabulous location; a really quiet road but only minutes away from the classy shops, bars and restaurants. Although Vasto is not 'touristy', and very little English is spoken, the locals are very friendly and welcoming. There is a lovely beach very near, and great views from the town, but you may need to get a bus down to it, if elderly. This is a medieval town, so lots of interest and culture here. We loved the local food and Prosecco, plus it is really reasonable! We will definitely come back to Vasto and this lovely apartment again next year.

“This lovely apartment and location supplied everything we wanted for a great holiday”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in September 2012

We both enjoy history, art, sea and countryside, as well as good food and a relaxed atmosphere. This apartment and location supplied all of these things and the apartment was in excellent condition with everything we needed being supplied. The apartment is a really nice space, the lounge area is very well furnished in an elegant way. The kitchen/dinning area and great wet room provide modern facilities. There was plenty of good quality equipment in the kitchen for cooking and eating and everything was spotless. If we had needed it, there was a TV with lots of videos, games etc and there were board games and books for our use. The bed was really comfortable and bedding was really nice quality, there was plenty of room for our clothes. The apartment is in a quiet location just minutes from the centre of the historical town. There were plenty of local restaurants that were extremely good quality and value, plus nice bars for sitting and 'people watching'. We were able to walk down to the beautiful beaches to swim and sunbathe and on some evenings there was music or singing in the town centre. The views from the town over the sea are lovely, we often just took a book to sit and read in the sun and admire them. The owners were really helpful and friendly and provided lots of information in the apartment about the town and surrounding area. We were really delighted with the apartment it was immaculate, well supplied and beautifully furnished and equiped.

La ringrazio molto per questo grande recensione! Vasto è molto bello e siamo molto felici che amavi esso. Spero che il prossimo anno si può venire per più di una settimana in modo da avere più tempo per vedere tutto ciò che la città ha da offrire, e magari ottenere il tempo di andare alle bellissime Isole Tremiti. Saluti, Judy e James
