Half pro & Half con.
The US owner was very kind to reply to us every time we wrote to him.
The apartment was clean and well equipped as described on WEB site except for internet, which was important for us.
In mail exchanges with owner, I had some concerns about the fact that the highway was passing close to the apartment. In his reply, he says "You can hear the highway when you are sitting on one of the balconies off the living room, but it's not very loud, and the view of 20 miles of the Adriatic Coast is so spectacular that you'll pay no attention to the highway which is down the hill. We usually eat on the balcony, and no one has ever complained."
I (and others in the party) may be fussy but I found very annoying the noise made by 22 wheel trucks passing over expansion joints on the viaduc between the apartment and the sea. For the view the viaduc was not that bad but the building in construction (for years ?) was not very nice as well as the environment on the entrance side of the building ( Car repair shop).
The walking distance between the apartment and Vasto historic center is about 1.5 km and takes about 15 min instead of ten min (web site) on a junky road without sidewalk.
Besides that, Vasto is a really nice city as well as Lanciano and Chieti .
Super commercial centre (Conad) close to the apartment (350 m).
Close to an historic town, the seaside, skiing, golf, excellent dining, and clubs. A short drive to the Apennine Mountains, and three of the largest national parks in Italy. A ferry service goes from Vasto to the Tremiti Islands. An easy drive to the beautiful and unspoiled Gargano Peninsula.
