“Relaxing stay in a comfortable apartment”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our host, Kate, was very welcoming and the accommodation was very good. It was a good base to explore the surrounding towns like Palombaro, Guardiareale and the gorge at Fara San Martino. Kate's fig jam was A1.

“The perfect holiday”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really loved staying with Kate and Stephen.
The appartement was really nice, inside it's rather small but very functional. The balcony is spectaculair! it's big, quiet and lovely to sit on. There are relaxing chairs, a dinner table and an olive tree hanging right over it.
The views we astonishing! a couple of big mountains and that's it.
Also a big plus on the property is the pool. Is a prefect way to cool down after a day of exploring the suroundings or you can also just stay in for a day and relax in the sun, enjoying the quietness.
Kate is a really nice lady who will do everything to make you're stay as comfortable as possible.
(one more tip: don't forget to try the fresh viges you can take right of the trees :) )

During the booking process we received great communication with Stephen and Kate, giving use good directions from the airport and ideas of places to visit. We received a warm welcome from Kate on arrival, even though it was late at night, with a welcome pack of essential items to help us settle in.

There is a local shop selling local produce and all the basics you would need, plus a supermarket not far way.

We stayed in the Cavallone apartment which was very comfortable, roomy and was well equipped with everything you would need. It was lovely to sit out on the sun terrace and admire the wonderful views.

We hired a car from the airport and spent some days visiting the local area, getting a feel of unspoilt Italy. The mountains, which are ideal for walking and hiking are a short drive away, with the coast only a 40 minute drive in the other direction. There are plenty of places to visit in the area including stunning views, lakes, villages, towns, the coast, restaurants and much more. Kate was always on hand to give us advise of places and areas to visit, lending us books and maps to help us find our way.

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday and intend to return again in the future

“Wonderful and relaxing with stunning views.”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had a fantastic time at Villa Maieletta and would thoroughly recommend it as a destination for anyone wanting a peaceful and tranquil holiday environment. Stephen and Kate are fantastic hosts and were always approachable, welcoming us daily with friendly smiles and providing us with a wealth of invaluable information about the local area. We stayed in the Martellese apartment, which is as luxurious and picturesque as described. The views from the apartment balcony of the Maiella mountains are sumptuous and will certainly not disappoint and there are many other fantastic sites and places to visit in the area as a whole. In particular we would recommend a day spent visiting Grotta del Cavallone followed by dinner in ab beautiful town called Salmona.

“Superb accommodation in a delightful setting - not to be missed.”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The location is brilliant with wonderful views. An ideal place from which to explore the surrounding country side and neighbouring villages. The accommodation is superb, having everything that one could possibly need, including an excellent shower. The village shop is very handy and is only a short walk away as is the agriturisme providing fantastic meals at very reasonable prices.The owners made us most welcome and were very helpful with information concerning the area.
