We only stayed one night do to our travels but would have liked to stay longer. Cozy and
Roomy. Beautiful stone farm house with great views of mountains.
What dreams are made of!
We had the most amazing experience. The owners met us upon arrival, showed us around, gave us some pamphlets about the local area AND told us about their niece (Valentina) who owns a restaurant in Roccascalegna (Civico 20)...more on that later. Before leaving us, they picked a fresh pomegranate from there land and gave it to us. I'm telling you, this was an experience that dreams are made of.
On the second day, they stopped by to give us a bottle of the local wine. Unfortunately, we were not there but I can tell you the local wine in wonderful. Since we were not there, they came by later that day, and thankfully so. They showed us where the washing machine was and how to use it. Furthermore, they put me on the phone with their niece, Valentina. Not only did she personally invite us to eat at her restaurant, she promised that the chef, Rafael would come out and meet us and cook up something wonderful for us. And boy was it wonderful! October is truffle season, so we went with Casarecce Pasta (truffle paste & sautéed mushrooms) and Arrosticini (local lamb dish). Both were out of this world.
The experience didn't stop there. Roccascalegna is know for a beautiful castle that is precariously perched on the spur of a mountain. Unfortunately, we were visiting during the off-season and the castle was closed. I use the term unfortunately loosely...Valentina called a few people and had the castle opened for us. We were free to roam around as long as we wanted. It was an amazing experience.
I'd like to tell you that that's the end of this amazing experience ended but it's not. The next day Valentina came by the villa so that we could follow her to the local co-op to buy some of the local wine. I asked if she could recommend a local bakery for bread, she went above and beyond and called the bread truck to come by the villa before we set out on the remainder of our journey through Abruzzo. The bread and pizza was amazing, the best we had in all of Italy.
This place is magical! I hope to go back and visit often. I still think of the amazing food and how welcome they all made us feel. I HIGHLY recommend this villa! It is conveniently located off a main highway (SS 652) and Lake Bomba (pronounced BOOM-BA).
A special thank you to the whole family for making this an experience we will never forget. I have told everyone I know since returning to the states. I've even given your information to a few people.
Cosa dire?Ci siamo trovati un angolo di pace ,la casa trasmette sensazioni positive,silenzio ,relax,
Posto strategico a mezz,ora dalle spiagge e vicina a riserve naturali,piene di alberi e fiori,un bel respiro tra boschi e laghetti,per non parlare poi della cordialità dei ristoratori e dei proprietari del casale,avremmo voluto più giorni per apprezzare al meglio tutto quanto.consigliato anche a famiglie con bambini e amici a 4 zampe.
Grazie carissimi, è stato un piacere avere ospiti come voi. Speriamo in una prossima occasione. Arrivederci.
La casa è molto bella e c’e tutto il necessario per trascorrere le giornate, e poi il posto è commodo per fare gite sia in montagna che nel litorale. Una esperienza indimenticabile fra gli ulivi, i fiori, gli uccelli e la vista della Majella. I proprietari sono molto gentili e ci hanno accolto benissimo.
Grazie signori Gajo, siete stati molto gentili e cordiali. E' stato un piacere conoscervi e conversare con voi delle cose comuni e degli hobby che condividiamo. Speriamo di poterci rivedere.
nice view, kind owners but desolated
The location of the house is very nice, overlooking the olive trees/fig trees and mountains, but the area is desolated.
On arrival the house was very well cleaned. The owners are very kind and and do their utmost, but communication isn’t easy. They speak very little English.
The house is big enough for 3 persons, but to small for 5 (as advertised)
Lake Bomba has failed as a tourist area and the lake is deserted. There is no camping/restaurant/bar/pool /boat rental or any other activity in the area.
Abruzzo is not very welcoming to foreign tourist. It is very hard to get information and even in the tourist office in the larger towns nobody speaks English /French/German.
Non potevo trovare di meglio! Appartamento curatissimo, pulito, biancheria impeccabile, necessaire da bagno abbondanti, free wi-fi, cucina ben attrezzata, salone accogliente con un bel tavolo grande e il caminetto, letti comodi. L’appartamento è in un casale di altri tempi perfettamente ristrutturato senza perdere il fascino del tipico rustico di campagna! Paesaggio da favola verso la Maiella. Bellissimo anche il giardino, con un bell’oliveto e altri alberi da frutto. Posizione strategica per esplorare la Valle del Sangro e le pendici della Maiella, con luoghi fantastici come le Grotte del Cavallone, le Gole di Fara San Martino, le cascate del Verde , il castello di Roccascalegna. Il casale si trova su una strada comoda e ben tenuta. I proprietari sono deliziosi! Abbiamo gestito la prenotazione via mail ma senza che mancasse mai il contatto umano: ho avuto tanti consigli su come sfruttare al meglio il breve tempo di un weekend, arrivati in Abruzzo abbiamo sempre potuto contattarli direttamente via telefono, e nell’appartamento siamo stati accolti cordialmente, con pasticcini fatti in casa per la colazione della mattina dopo e fiori di campo nei vasi! :) Veramente un peccato fermarsi soltanto una notte, perché c’è moltissimo da vedere nei dintorni (è una zona dell’Abruzzo forse non molto conosciuta ma ricca di attrattive) e il casale è davvero in una posizione ottimale per giorni tranquilli e rilassanti.
