I was warmly greeted by Laura, the property manager. My first impression of the Casa was that it was much larger than I expected and I loved the vaulted ceilings. It was spotlessly clean and the views amazing. It had every amenity I could want or need. I was a woman traveling alone and desiring to experience the real Italy. I felt very safe here. Laura and Terri went above and beyond in helping my experience be even more than I had hoped. I enjoyed a wine tour of the Abruzzo region which included many exciting stops in addition to the vineyards. It was fun exploring the village on foot and meeting many special people. The markets, food, wine and olive oil were exceptional. I would highly recommend this property if you are wanting to be away from cities and tourists and you want to experience Italy. It would be a good idea to have a car for exploring outside the village. I would definitely return in the future.
