Bel appartement dans le centre historique de Sulmona

Nous venons de passer 3 nuits dans ce bel appartement dans le centre historique de Sulmona. L'appartement est super propre, lumineux et décoré avec goût. Katy et Steve ont également pris soin de l'équiper au maximum. Rien ne manque et tout est très bien pensé. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la possibilité d'utiliser la cheminée sans trop d'effort (tout le matériel y était), plus pour l'atmosphère en réalité que pour la chaleur car l'appartement est déjà très bien chauffé sans cela (parole de frileux). Nous sommes venus en voiture et n'avons jamais eu de souci à trouver une place de parking non payante grâce notamment aux conseils de nos hôtes. L'appartement est tout proche des restaurants et magasins du centre: nous avons tout fait à pieds. Dernier point très positif : la réactivité de Katy et Steve qui ont toujours répondu à nos messages rapidement et avec toutes les indications nécessaires.

Nearly a week in this beautiful apartment.

We spent nearly a week in this beautiful apartment. Katy is an amazing and thoughtful host. The apartment was so comfortable the four of us chose to postpone the next “leg” of our trip. We loved walking to Sulmona’s outdoor market, restaurants and Sunday evening concert. We shopped in the local stores and when we felt the need to venture away from this lovely town we visited Pescara and the Gran Sasso. Thank you, Katy!

Beautiful 2 bedroom 2 Bath apartment.

We were so pleased when we arrived at Katie's beautiful 2 bedroom 2 Bath apartment. It was fully stocked with everything you need. Each room was well appointed and comfortable. We were two couples and we had plenty of privacy if we wanted. The location was close to everything. Parking was near by. I highly recommend Katie's place when staying in Sulmona, Abruzzi.

Wonderful

We enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is well fitted out, clean and very comfortable. Staying in the old part of town is good. Walk to bars, cafes, shops and restaurants just down the street. We'll miss the evening drinks whilst watching the locals walk up and down the Main Street. Katy and Steve are very helpful hosts. They have put a lot of thought into making your Italian holiday a success. I would go as far to say they would be our best hosts.

“Home away from Home! Simply Perfect!”

We planned this holiday more than 12 months ago and have been communicating with Katy from that time. She has always been honest, prompt and extremely helpful and thoughtful. This did not abate one single bit whilst we stayed in Sulmona. NOTHING is a bother which is comforting when you are travelling to/staying in a foreign country with limited knowledge of the language. The apartment appeared larger to us than what is shown in the photos. Everything you could want for self catering and a comfortable stay is there. We have stayed in many Airbnb's across Australia and other parts of Italy and Katy's provisions are extremely generous and the apartment will not leave you wanting. The views from all the windows are lovely. There are 53 steps up to the apartment with level sections walking along 2nd floor to break up the climb. There are also 8 steps leading down to the front door. Easily done! Simply condition your legs before your trip and you will be able to walk up the many wonderful streets throughout Italy during your holiday with ease. The location is perfect too. Not far at all from bars, restaurants, confetti, grocery and fashion stores. We'll certainly be happy to stay with Katy again when next we visit Sulmona! Thanks again Katy!

Best in Sulmona

Apt exceeded our expectations. Fully stocked with everything you need. Owners even provided us with a beach kit (chairs, umbrella, etc..). Owners Steve and Katie are extremely knowledgeable of the Abruzzo Region (and Rome). They will go out of their way to accommodate you and to provide guidance for what to experience and when (including cooking classes). This is the place to book if you choose to explore central Italy.

DREAMY

Have you ever wondered what’s behind those beautiful arched timeworn wooden doors as you meander down a cobblestone street of a picturesque village? We had the chance to find out, in this beautiful apartment, each time we turned the key to enter, we had to pinch ourselves; this was going to be our home-based for a week! Overjoyed with our stay. Katy is very responsive and a wealth of knowledge, from the moment we booked it was stress-free, with clear and easy instructions, she picked us up from the car park with a warm welcome, her husband helped us carry our bags inside, she gave us a run through of the apartment, which is immaculate, spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped with attention to the smallest of details. At the entry of the apartment there is a desk and bulletin board loaded with information and maps of the area, we were so appreciative of, plus a very useful reference book regarding everything you need to know about the use of the apartment, thoughtfully organized. There are beautiful views from every window, we took full advantage of the balcony that overlooks the peaceful courtyard, and tile roof tops of the neighborhood, it was the perfect way to begin and end our day. We were mere steps from small shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, and an easy 5 minute walk to parking and the market, which we went to nearly every day, we can’t imagine a better location in Sulmona. A highlight for us was taking a cooking class with one of the local Nonna’s and her daughter, a treasured experience that Katy set up, thank you! If our stay was longer we would have taken the wine tasting class too. Our recommendations, get lost in the streets and alleys, soak up the magnificent architecture and culture. The farmers market on Wed & Sat is a must, as is the spectacular drive to Scano, Villalago and Pacentro, and lastly take in the evening passeggiata (the art of the Italian stroll) on Corso Ovidio. As other travelers mentioned, we found friendly locals, amazing views and fantastic food, wherever we went. Our experience could not have been better. Thank you Katy for everything, it was a pleasure crossing paths and staying in 'Gramsci 29'.
