“what dreams are made of”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I attended a wedding here. The setting of the pool and the beautiful grounds was incredible. The entire house added a charm that most can only dream of in enchanted fairytales. the backdrop of the Italian countryside added privacy, tranquility and a touch of exclusivity. I would highly recommend this gem of a house to anyone looking for a getaway or to add the finishing touches to a special occasion that will leave your guests stunned and create an experience you will never forget.

Dear Jay,
Thank you for such a kind review. I recall this to be your second visit to my home and I glad it surpassed your first. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future. It was a pleasure to accommodate you and you made a lasting impression on some of the villagers with your kindness

“A hidden gem - shh”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Warmly welcomed by lovely Liliana. A beautiful and well-equipped property, inside and out. Perfect for us, our friends and our four children aged 11-15 years. Lovely 15 min walk uphill to the village, and just 5 min drive by car to Guardiagrele. Plenty to see and do. Enjoyed every moment.

“beyond expectations!”

I wanted to visit this part of Italy and as I have a young child with me, I decided to go for a holiday rental. The manager / owner Paul was very helpful and provided us with all the details we would need to ensure that we had a good stay- such as place to eat, put us in contact with the locals. The house is managed by some Italians who live around there but the owner was available on the phone for any queries we had. My son loved the pool. The food is fresh and vegan ( if you prefer that option.) The place has amazing views and lots of space to practise yoga and go for a run in the morning. The house itself is lovely, well looked after and homely. This is what I was looking for and my girlfriends- 4 of us- and I are going again in August. Nothing but 5 star because I came back refreshed and happy.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It's a beautiful place! But we are not happy with our stay. It was supposed to have wifi, a pool and tv. There was a wifi, but no password, there is a tv but no batteries in the remote, and there was a pool but no water in it. They started fill up the pool the day we arrived but they didn't clean it and the water was freezing. The house was messy, and the kitchen was dirty. It's not the first house we rent in Italy, but defenetily the worst. It's not that hard to make a list of how things work around the house, what to see in area, good restaurants and so on. We payed for the things in the ad but we feel we didn't get what we payed for.

I am sorry that the Villa did not meet your expectations. I have taken on board your comments, as you will have seen from the comments both before and after that your stay was an aberration and one that will not be repeated. Should you choose to stay again you are welcome to stay for the same period free of charge. Guests enjoyment is something I take very very seriously and changes have been put in place since your visit as you will see from the reviews. Once again my apologies and again you are welcome to stay again on me should you so wish. Paul

“A piece of tranquility at beautiful setting and great facilities”

Placed in a most beautiful place with amazing views of the countryside. A bit isolated which was great to escape the day to day noise.
The villa is very well equipped and comfortable. It was still cold and after a day with the central heating it became very cosy. The fire place was the center of the evening extended family gathering after visiting the amazing national parks nearby.
Paul provided very detailed information regarding the area, restaurants and supermarkets which proved to be most valuable.
This was kind of a 5 days staying in heaven.
We do recommend this place very warmly and thank our good luck of finding it.
