The Apartment

The apartment is dual-aspect with views on one side over a quiet pedestrian side street and, on the other side, overlooking our own private garden below. There are two comfortable double bedrooms. Each bedroom has French windows leading out onto the balcony and its own bathroom.

There is a fully equipped kitchen / dining area with a full-sized oven, a four-ring gas hob, fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and cooking equipment / utensils for everyday cooking. 

The dining table seats 4 people comfortably. This room also has French windows and overlooks the side-street below.

The large sitting room has two comfortable Eco Pelle sofas and a wood burning stove in the fireplace.

The entrance hall is unconventionally wide and features a small console table where you will find maps, guide books and tourist info, and where you can work quietly on your laptop. We have high-speed fibre optic wifi in the apartment which should be sufficient for all of your day-to-day internet needs.

A metre-wide balcony runs along the entire length of this apartment and overlooks our own garden below. It has two small tables and 4 chairs so you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening aperitivo in the open air.

The palazzo dates from the mid 19th century but we have just finished restoring this apartment with new bathrooms, a new kitchen, new double-glazed window units and new wooden flooring.

We have furnished with both style and comfort in mind with a few carefully chosen pieces which we hope you will enjoy and appreciate. The addition of a washing machine means that this space is especially suitable for longer term visitors. We have also provided an ironing board & iron plus a drying rack for your convenience.

This apartment is located on the second floor*. The palazzo is mostly residential, and therefore very quiet, with one legal studio on the first floor. Please note that there is no elevator but we will help you with your bags if required.

We live in the ground-floor garden apartment of this palazzo so there is almost always someone around to help you with any query you might have. Our principal business is a communications consultancy which operates in the tourism sector, so we are knowledgeable about all of the local services and facilities and can advise you on day trips and things to do.

The neighbourhood

The city centre of Sulmona is a vibrant and bustling place to enjoy your holiday. We are located on a secondary street within a minute's walk of the main Corso Ovidio where you will find most of the bars and restaurants.

Getting around

Gramsci 29 is situated in the restricted traffic zone of the city centre with limited car access at specific times of the day. Don't worry as we can always advise you where to park safely and come to meet you if required. You won't need a car to enjoy Sulmona itself but if you want to explore the local area, a car is more flexible than relying on the local buses. This is great cycling country too and you are welcome to bring your bike with you.

Other things to note:

Bedrooms & bathrooms - occupancy
The apartment has 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each with a shower. One of the bathrooms is en-suite. If you have booked the apartment as a couple we will assume you require use of one bedroom and one bathroom only. The choice of which one / ones is entirely up to you. If you are travelling as 2 single people, or would prefer to have the use of a bedroom and a bathroom each, we will ask you to pay the cost as per 3 person occupancy but not the full rate for 4 people. We need to make this clear as early as possible to avoid any eventual misunderstanding. Note that there are no facilities for a fifth or subsequent person in the apartment.
