“A wonderful find in the heart of Pacentro”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We couldn't find our original booked B&B and stumbled upon Alberto and his wonderful accommodations. It was divine intervention because it was one of the highlights of our trip. Our rooms were lovely and the bathrooms were all new and updated. Alberto is the perfect host and can not do enough to make your stay more enjoyable. Breakfast was so delicious with enough food to feed an army.When you open the front door of Alberto's home you walk out onto the most breathtaking views of not only the medieval village that is Pacentro but of the beautiful hills beyond the towns limits. I would highly recommend the B&B In Centro a Pacentro to anyone who wants to feel like one of the locals. It was an amazing experience for my family.

Room Tip: All the rooms were excellent

Having travelled to many places in Italy (June 2014), my wife and myself, along
with our college-age son and daughter, found Pacentro to be one of the highlights
of our trip. Pacentro, just east of Sulmona, deserves the official winner title: Most
Beautiful Villages in Italy. The western hills of the Majella National Park can be
viewed from nearly every window of the B & B in Centro a Pacentro. The town is
pretty and the scenic views are majestic. Our host at the B & B, Alberto, even met
us on the street as we approached his home on the lower piazza. Alberto and his
mother run the B & B in an efficient and kindly manner with wonderful breakfasts,
excellent rooms, and a friendly atmosphere that made each of us feel welcome.

Pacentro is a medieval hill town, first settled about the 8th century. The B &B In
Centro a Pacentro (prounounced CHENTRO a PACHENTRO, for the Inglese
speakers) is situated right on the central street at the center of town, hence its
name. There is a small castle overlooking the town. The streets are steep and
medieval housing is abundant. A little market is only a few doors near the B & B
where hardware and food can be purchased. The main piazza (where the large
fountain is situated) has an excellent rosticceria and pizzeria with outdoor seating,
and the dinner hour for Italians begins around eight o'clock. Don't go too early.
There are several trattorias and ristorantes to fit every budget spread around the
lower piazza area. Pacentro is noted for its meat dishes. La Polta: peppers fried
in oil with garlic, served with beans and potatoes is the "peasant's dish" of the town.

Pacentro is a very nice mountain town. The people were all friendly and helpful and
they are what will make your stay in Pacentro memorable. You may even run into
residents from your own country who were born there and have gone back to live or
vacation.

The B & B IN Centro a Pacentro has lovely rooms and the dining area is just as
beautiful, even more so than the pictures you see on the Internet. I cannot say
enough about the town and the B & B, one has to experience both for themselves.

Oh, and I might add, the American pop queen Madonna's parents and grandparents
are from Pacentro. One of the locals told me that if I saw anyone with a crazy look in
their eyes it was probably one of Madonna's cousins.

arrivederci,

So happy I changed my reservations to stay right within Pacentro. This B&B is so charming and perfectly located within the town. Alberto went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable and accommodating. The morning breakfast consisted of delicious homemade goodies and fresh fruit, and the view from the breakfast terrace was amazing.

Stayed over a week, Albert is a great host and very helpful with information on the area. Amazing views from all bedrooms in a great village. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone spending time in Pacentro. Just steps away from the main square.

Wonderful time and breakfast at B&B In Centro a Pacentro! Alberto is very knowledgeable about the history of this village as well as the trails in which to hike in the mountains. Alberto is an excellent host the breakfast was filled with homemade jellies, cakes, pies, pizza and bread. In addition to all of that, he has several choices of American cereal to choose from. I can not wait to return to B&B In Centro a Pacentro, the price was reasonable and accommodations superb! Elegance from top to bottom in his family B&B. Thank you Alberto for a wonderful stay!!!

Room Tip: panoramic room is my favorite.

Heartly recommended! We spent a few days at the B&B In Centro a Pacentro over Easter. From Pacentro we could easily drive into the Majella parc and also made it to the east coast. Pacentro turned out to be our favorite village in the Majella. Alberto and his family are incredibly welcoming and helpful hosts. They were always happy to answer our questions and offer local expert advice about what to visit and where to eat. Every morning for breakfast there was a fantastic spread of local baked products, whether home-baked or sourced from the local bakery. Having learned that I was gluten-intollerant they even supplied gluten-free breads and snacks! It was lovely to chat with Alberto, he told us about the local traditions and made us feel part of the special Easter celebrations that take place in Pacentro and the nearby Sulmona.
