“A fantastic get away in unspoilt Abruzzo”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a lovely stay at these beautiful villas. The location is perfect - up in the hills with wonderful views all round. The villas are perfectly formed - space to relax and a kitchen with everything you need to knock up some lovely pasta (freshly made from a local producer) or a light lunch of ricotta and honey (bought from the local dairy collective). David is the perfect host - providing advice on where to go, access to walking in the mountains or visits to local towns as well as local restaurants. It was very hot during our stay and the pool was a lovely spot to relax, read and cool off in the clear water.

Abruzzo itself is wonderful - very few tourists but beautiful places to visit from hill top towns with amazing views to gorges to the tops of the local mountain national park. We didn't have time to do everything...so we'll just have to go back!

Thoroughly recommended!

“Just Go!!”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Can only agree with prior reviews from -
booking, sending detailed instructions and information, welcome and orientation tour the whole process was flawless.
The villa was larger than expected, well equipped and comfortable,
spotlessly clean and those views! the Pool area was lovely.
Within 30 minutes you could be in superb mountain scenery, quaint villages, medieval towns or at the coast.
Wonderful local food and wine and a variety of restaurants from the local's café (excellent value) through to 1 Michelin star!
Pauline and David were perfect hosts being a source of incredible knowledge whilst respecting your privacy.

“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A lovely set of 3 villas set in the beautiful mountains, rounded off with a pool and 2 great hosts in David and Pauline, nothing was too much trouble for them in helping with any information you might need in local restaurants and shops.
Had a wonderful time and will return.
Thanks again

“Perfect English villa in non-touristy Italy”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The villa we stayed in is part of a three-villa complex for couples only (no children noise then). Immediately recognizable as a non-Italian property when you step inside, with British quality of plumbing and better-than-average level of comfort. The main joys are outside: view of the hills so spectacular you can just sit there and watch this like you watch a painting, and the same you do from a spacious pool, framed by decorative shrubs and olive trees and opening to Abruzzo mountains.

I find little that can be improved in the property itself - the internet was on a slow side but then again we had untypically high demands (it was a two week working holiday and we kept sending large files backwards and forwards), otherwise it was just perfect every step of the way. If we were to stay for a month or longer perhaps we would have wanted a washer and a dishwasher, but there are constraints of space.

The hosts were head and shoulders above any expectations that you may have: from volunteering to book our restaurants (there is a mind-blowing Michelin star one within 15 minutes drive in Guardiagrele) to helping us with anything we needed and accompanying us to an exotic red pepper festival not far way (!!!), and with the owner offering a little tour to show a few notable restaurants, best fresh pasta store, a pharmacy and such like. The file that they keep in the room offers a wealth of information and I encourage you to read it.

We are no strangers to Italy, but this was an extraordinary experience and superbly thought-through holiday. If David and Pauline were to set up anywhere else in the world, I would go there in a heartbeat.

Great review - thanks so much. Yes, it's true our i/net speeds can be a little on the...er...leisurely side - but that's rural Italy for you. (In fact, when we first got here in 2007, our village didn't have i/net access at all !) But really pleased you so thoroughly explored what our area has to offer during your stay - and hope we'll see you again soon !

“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.
