This luxurious rental is perfect. It is in the center of gorgeous, conveniently located, and friendly Sulmona. It is within walking distance to anything you would want (Hostaria dell Arco and Clemente were some particular favorites). It is child friendly and has cable tv and wifi if you are looking to relax at home. Parking can be difficult in historical centers but this apartment is at a stone's throw from a safe parking lot outside the old city walls.

Our host Victor is gracious and knowledgeable about the area. He is available and flexible. We arrived at an ungodly hour in the middle of the night and he woke up to help us with everything.

All of my family loved this spot and can't wait to come back.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Abruzzo, Sulmona, 1st floor apt were all 5 stars. Victor was very helpful and shared his passion for the area and the local people even though he is not native to the area. Saw 2 other tourists in 5 days. Victor invited the four of us for an aperitif on his roof top deck. Amazing views.

We were driving a 7 passenger van so there are stories to be told of driving adventures in an old city and on small country roads. But that is all part of being in an astounding area. Of course we will be back to Abruzzo and hope to have to privilege of staying in one of Victor's apartments.

Wohnung mit Flair

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schöne, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit kleinen Balkonen (eher Austritte) und schöner Aussicht auf die Altstadt und die umliegenden Berge.

Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und nach einer anspruchsvollen Anreise- besondere Parkzone, kleine Gasse, die nicht wirklich zu befahren ist- an dem zauberhaften Ort und der wundervollen Natur mit vielen Wandermöglichkeiten erfreut.

Bei der Buchung wäre ein Hinweis auf die Anforderungen der Anreise mit dem Auto wünschenswert.

Today, Sulmona is a charming town full of character and great architecture. Its cathedral, churches, palaces, theater and piazzas make this town really stunning. Surrounded by several medieval villages and castles (Pacentro, Scanno, Indrodaqua…) and two National Parks (National Park of Abruzzo and National Park of the Majella), Sulmona is your perfect town to explore this magical part of Italy where traditions, people, restaurants, food and beauty of the landscape will make an unforgettable vacation.
