“Probably better out of season and the website oversells the complex”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed here with my husband and 11 year old daughter at the beginning of August for two weeks. The apartment we stayed in (Ortensia/Hydrangea) was generally well equipped although there wasn't enough crockery and glasses but the apartment was very clean.

The swimming pool dimensions are not as large as it appears on the web site so to help the dimensions are 12m by 6m with a depth of 1.1m at the shallow end to 1.6m. If the apartments are full there aren't enough sunbeds or deckchairs to go around. The whole complex is on the top of a hill in a hamlet and so to enable you to enjoy the communal area you will need to park your car in the public square just outside the gates. The grass around the swimming pool is astroturf. The garden at the back is very pretty but there isn't really any room to play ball games. The view is lovely from the complex.

The apartments are very close to one another. We were very lucky as Ortensia has its own private patio and table where you can eat together with a view of the garden. The owner tries to encourage you to use a vending machine and so although there was a coffee maker in our apartment there was no small milk saucepan nor any measuring jugs etc

If the apartments are full then it can be noisy at night from other guests. Fortunately one of our bedrooms was on the garden side and so was quiet. However, if your visit is not in high season and the complex is not full I would imagine that it would be lovely and quiet. Unfortunately the owner does have a dog that has a habit of barking for a couple of hours during the night which did keep us awake regularly.

The owner is helpful but we visited friends in another area of Italy during our stay and gave our keys back to the owner to enable her to clean our apartment. On our return (as we arrived earlier than expected) it became very apparent that she had entertained guests in the apartment and had a guest to stay in one of the rooms we had rented.

The location of the complex is good as you can get to the coast and mountains easily and is in north Abruzzo. The nearest beaches are good and about 25 minutes away. The mountains are a bit further. St Omero is OK but we struggled to find any good restaurants in the area. There was however a fantastic bakery which had great coffee and breakfast. There was some tourist information in the apartment but the owner was helpful with suggestions of where to visit when you asked for help.

The Wifi was very intermittent and it was quite frustrating.

Overall what you see on the website is what you get. There is no other area and there are potentially at least 22 people who could be staying there at one time which is quite crowded for the size of the complex. Added to that if you can't park in the piazza you would need to bring your car into the complex and thus reduce the communal area further.

Having said all this for what we wanted it was fine. The immediate area is not overwhelmingly beautiful as some parts of Abruzzo and Italy but it is very authentic and we grew to really like it as you are not in a touristy area. We used it as a base to visit friends, go to the beach, explore the mountains and visit Pescara.

Overall we had a good holiday but I feel I should have done a bit more research beyond the reviews and web site and looked at say google earth to get a better expectation of the apartments and area.
