"dépaysant"

La maison correspond tout à fait aux photos : très confortable, bien aménagée.Le point négatif est le chemin d'accès, très accidenté. Convient à des véhicules tout terrain.… More

Merci pour votre commentaire, nous sommes desoles si vous avez trouve le dernier trait de la route d'access en mauvaises conditions. Effectivement suite a des fortes pluies, nous avons eu des dommages a la rue, mais nous venons de la reparer. Toutefois, il est vrai qu'il s'agit d'une rue de campagne, qui peut s'endommager avec le mauvais temps.

"Lovely Cabin with great views"

The views from the house are amazing, the house was clean and overall we had a great time. About 5 minutes drive to Lorento Aprutino which was a nice little village but a drive to Pescara is worth it … More

"A wonderful Italian Experience"

The house is located in an olive grove about 5 minutes drive from the nearest town of Loreto Aprutino. A rental car is essential. We arranged to meet the owners Mother in the town and she brought us to the cabin. Everything was as described. A beautiful location with wonderful views and very tranquil. We spent our days exploring the nearby villages and sunbathing in Pescara (In October!) I liked the location because you had a choice of what to do each day mountains/beaches/shopping all within half an hour of the house. Everything went smoothly with the booking and would love to go back someday.

"A Tranquil Taste of Italy"

I had a lovely time here and would certainly recommend it. The accommodation is beautiful and gives a restful air which befits the surrounding countryside.

Staying amidst an olive grove afforded a wonderful opportunity to see how olives are harvested. The local oil is amazing!

I loved the jacuzzi bath and how pretty the bedrooms were. No fuss, just natural architecture and decor to suit.

Hire a car and explore the surrounding towns - very picturesque.

Hoping to go back and stay again.

"A true Italian experience!!!"

We spent a few days at Villa Fiorano after visiting the hot and overcrowded cities of Rome and Florence.
The cottage was an idyllic place to chill out and enjoy nature. We also looooved the rustic, authentic Italian cuisine of Maria, a true Italian Mamma!
The place was very clean and we were not disappointed in any way.
This is the place where we enjoyed Italy just as an Italian would!
We highly recommend it to everyone!

"Great Home Away from Home"

We enjoyed our week at "Villa Fiorano". It was a delight to have a home away from home where we could explore the towns and villages in Abruzzo. A rental car is a necessity due to the location. It was nice to be away from the touristy areas and to experience life as a local. What a beautiful house and the scenery - amazing! We felt well looked after and have no hesitation in recommending this vacation rental. Thanks Virna for the lovely memories!
