Getting around

To see the real Abruzzo and to discover it's hidden gems, we would always recommend that our guests hire a car. For non-drivers, there are buses from the town to nearby Chieti which provides train and bus transport links to many destinations. Some of our more energetic guests hire mountain and road bikes, we will happy to provide details of bike rental outlets should you wish to "get on your bike" whilst here.

Interaction with guest

Owners Joe and Frankie live in an apartment in the villa and are always available to chat, recommend attractions, day trips or restaurants etc. Guests will be provided with full keys & gate controls. Generally, if we knock on your door, it is to give you some of our freshly grown produce from our vegetable patch to taste. Alternatively if you want to be left alone, that too is possible! Being Italian, Joe is also available to provide cookery demonstrations for guests (wine provided) who want to learn some of the secrets of Italian cooking. If you need help booking anything in advance of or during your stay, we are here to help! Our cat and dog are very tame and love to meet new people as does our daughter (she is also very tame ).

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2016

Really enjoyed our stay at villa Leonardo. Fantastic views front and back, the apartment has all mod cons. Situated very handily near chieti, with approx. 20 min drive to the coast, or going inland not far from the grand sasso and the mountainous region of Pescara. Great place to stay, very peaceful and tranquil

Owner's reply: Many thanks for choosing to stay with us and thanks for your great review! We really hope to see you again someday. cheers, Frankie & Joe

“Super accommodation in a beautiful area”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2013

The quality of these appartments would be hard to beat. The location is very convenient for walking in the Majella, spending time at the beach - or sighseeing in the many interesting local towns. Frankie and Joe will do everything to make your stay memorable.

Owner's reply: We are glad that you enjoyed & appreciated Villa Leonardo & the surrounding area. Hoping to see you again very soon!

“Fabulous Hideaway”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

This is such an excellent location, with wonderful views of the Gran Sasso and Majella National Parks. It's easy to get to, the kind hosts Joe and Frankie provide satnav co-ordinates which bring you to the door. Plus they have a wealth of stories and information about the area. Yes, a car is a pre-requisite, to explore the fantastic countryside along quiet winding lanes. The accommodation is super clean and neat, and basic kitchen equipment to prepare full meals if required but there are plenty of restaurants of all types, within easy reach. The plunge pool is fabulous and to sit in the cool water under the splendid Italian sun, gazing at the stunning views will give you the best holiday ever.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again very soon.

“Abruzzo at it's best”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2013

If you are into the true Italy (not the tourist Italy like Toscana), Abruzzo is the region, it has everything, the sea, the hills and the mountains. It has excellent wines, particulary the white Pecorino, the food etc., etc. In this hidden and unexplored corner of Italy we arrived at Villa Leonardo one Saturday afternoon and discovered a very pleasant place to stay. We were received very friendly by an energetic and service minded irish woman, Frankie, her italian/english husband Joe, Leyla the dog and Buddy the cat. The apartment is superbly decorated and in a very good condition, it has marvellous views overlooking Abruzzo hills and both the Gran Sasso and the Maiella mountain areas. You can reach the sea in 30 minutes at Francavilla al mare, what more can you ask for. We both regretted that we did not book for more than one week, it was a real pleasure staying there. Kjell & Birgitta (Stockholm , Sweden)

Owner's reply: Hi, thanks so much for your great review and comments. We always like to receive feedback and we appreciate your positivity about the service that we offer. Thanks to the two of you for being great guests!! We hope you are enjoying our olive oil and dreaming of Abruzzo...maybe next time you can extend your stay to more than one week! Thanks again, Frankie & joe

“Unforgettable getaway destination!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2013

Apartments are beautifully designed and on the top floor of the building with access to a private balcony which is great for lazing in the sun! Everything you need in a holiday apartment is there or within easy access to. Views of mountain ranges on one side of the building and a view of the town on the other. Such a peaceful place. Joe and Frankie are very friendly and offer suggestions of worthwhile places to visit in and around the area. If anything was needed, they were more than helpful. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. Definitely on my list to visit again :)

Owner's reply: Hi, Thanks for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are always seeking ways to improve our customers' experience so the next time you come you should have an even better experience as since your visit we have installed a scandinavian plunge pool and bbq in a private courtyard and acquired some geese and chickens for fresh eggs! We look forward to seeing you again very soon!

“Lovely: place, folks, accomodations”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Had the basics for a traveler: clean, comfortable, friendly. The room was lovely - clean, quiet, fabulous views of the countryside. Very helpful and accommodating hosts who know the area well. Were most informative with places to go and how to get there. Looking forward to my next visit. Yes, I have recommended this to friends who like to travel out of the major city and tour stops ~

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your review. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!

“So relaxing and with every comfort. Absolutely splendid location.”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2013

You couldn't ask for better hosts, better accommodation or better location. We were absolutely delighted with Villa Leonardo Apartments and wouldn't hesitate to return. Layla the dog is a darling and I even got to like the geese and ducks. It was great being able to pick our own vege and fruit from the garden and we were close enough to the town to walk in and try out the several really good restaurants. Loved the place!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your positive review! we are glad your stay was enjoyable and hope to see you again in the near future.
