About Chris and Jo Verster
We are ex Capetonians who decided to leave the hustle and bustle of a busy city life and relocate to rural Italy. Chris was a project developer and Jo had art galleries for over 20 years. We hope that our respective careers are reflected in the Villa which has been restored to the highest standards whilst still keeping an authentic feeling. We bring a touch of South African style to Villa di Stelle.
Chris and Jo Verster purchased this Villa in 2011

Our best ever holiday!!
We had an amazing holiday!! A beautiful villa in simply the most breathtaking position. Good for mountains or beach! Jo and Chris made our holiday perfect with their local knowledge of where to go and what to see! (They even booked our restaurants for us)!! If you like abruzzo this villa has everything!
It was an absolute pleasure meeting you all. We're so pleased that you had a wonderful time. Hope to see you again one day. Best regards Jo and Chris.
Spectacular views, luxurious and tasteful accomoda
I had the great pleasure to stay at this exquisite villa in early June 2015. The villa is incredibly comfortable and tastefully furnished. The roof terrace and pool area offer incredibly lovely views across fields of olives and wheat to snow capped mountains and hill top villages. Truly idyllic! The weather was perfect, the twilight sublime and the ambience just delightful. This is the ideal place for a week or two restful break from the big urb. Jo and Chris are gracious and charming hosts. I highly recommend Villa de Stella. It does not get better than this.
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa di Stelle, and hopefully you did have a restful time. We very much hope to welcome you here again in the not too distant future.
Kindest regards. Jo and Chris.
Relaxing stay at Villa di Stelle
The villa was beyond our expectations with its amazing panoramic views from the roof terrace. Its far enough to feel you’re on your own, and have some privacy, but also close enough to shops and the local town. The top flat we stayed in was spotless, is really nicely decorated and has all you might need for your stay. The place is really peaceful and perfect to relax. Chris and Jo are very friendly and helpful, and have lots of tips for places to go, local restaurants etc. We thought it was so welcoming, beyond providing the cooking essentials like olive oil, salt and pepper, we were also stocked up with teas, coffee, bread, and tomatoes, eggs, and milk in the fridge on our arrival. We would definitely come back and recommend it to our family and friends.
Thank you for the excellent reveiew. It was so nice to have met you both, and definitely hope we'll see you again in the future. Best wishes, Jo and Chris.
Cozy, peacveful, amazing
We had the most amazing stay at Chris & Jo’s in Abruzzo.
They are such lovely people who made us feel extremely welcome, provided us with a lovely welcome package, so we didn’t starve at our arrival, helped us out with tips for the local area and were in general really warm and friendly hosts.
The apartment is nicely decorated and very home-y and cozy – however, we didn’t spend much time inside but stayed permanently in either the pool area or on the fantastic roof top terrace. The peace and tranquility is indescribable as is the 180 degree view (at day as well as at night), and we will definitely be going back to this little slice of heaven as soon as possible.
Beautiful countryside villa
I was thoroughly impressed by Villa di Stelle. Chris and Jo were delightful hosts. The villa was quiet, private and pristine. Set amongst picture perfect scenery I found it a superb place for some R & R and a highlight of my trip to Italy.
It was a pleasure to meet you. Hope to see you back here one day. Best, Jo and Chris.
Beautiful villa in spectacular location
Villa di Stelle is the perfect destination for a week of relaxation, great local Italian food, and magical views of the Abruzzan countryside.
The immaculate villa is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated and fitted, with everything we needed in our home away from home. We loved the spectacular views of the Majella mountains while swimming in our own pool.
We visited many of the nearby towns, which were charming and refreshingly un-toruistified. There's great gelato to be enjoyed at each one, and it's amazing to eat in restaurants filled with locals (and at local prices!). The nearby beaches are pretty great, too.
Thanks Jo and Chris for looking after us so well. We can't wait to be back soon.
You were such fabulous guests, and thanks for the great comments. You know that we will always be happy to see you again. Jo and Chris
