Our cosy, charming house in the beautiful town of Capestrano is a lovely place to stay as a family or with friends. It will comfortably accommodate 4-6 guests, has a fully equipped kitchens, 2 terraces and 2 balconies. (2 bedrooms, 1 sofa bed).
The house was restored in 2013, so everything is nice and new and shiny! Comfy new beds and bedding, a fully equipped kitchen and a cosy living room make our property a great base from which to explore Abruzzo.
Rental is for the full house and outside terraces (which are the perfect place to unwind with a BBQ and red wine after a day of hiking in the mountains!).
Our house is located in the ancient town of Capestrano, Abruzzo. Founded in the 13th century, Capestrano offers a variety of inspiring architecture, eventful history, countless vineyards, fabulously friendly locals and a simply unforgettable view.
Situated in the mountainous Abruzzo region, this beautiful town is just 45 minutes from the beach, 30 minutes from the ski slopes, 15 minutes from the Gran Sasso national park, and 90 minutes from Rome. This is an undiscovered part of Italy!
The house comes with parking. Capestrano is located about 10km from the main highway going between Rome and Pescara (A25)
We had some wonderful days in Capestrano, at Joseph&Tanya's house. The house has an excellent location with a very nice view on the historic centre of the town. Terraces, balconies provide the joy to admire the look. Furniture, installations in the house are almost new and work perfectly. Our careful and never tired guide was Allessando, now our friend Chicco who was an ideal host making his best to try to substitute J&T who, from the distance, also showed their care for us. We went to visit the town of St. John of Capistran and found a unique Italian town, far from the tourist hordes, with mysterious medieval streets. Hopefully we shall be able to go back; it was a wonderful time for us and weather also was excellent.
What a great place to stay in a fabulous little city!! Comfortable, beautiful, just about every convenience, great location, great neighbors, sufficient parking. Liked it so much, got to go back and stay longer!
We came to Capestrano with our 2 daughters to let them get an authentic Italian experience and we were not disappointed. Alessandro, our contact there, was extremely friendly and helpful. He is an affable larrikin who is enthusiastic about visitors coming to the Abruzzo region but less crazy about seatbelts! Be prepared to give your Italian language skills a bit of a workout.
The house is the real deal down amongst the narrow roads with views up to the castle. With the shutters on the windows that block out all the light, we awoke much later than we usually do, to the sounds of the castle bells chiming the time. Capestrano is so quiet and still, it is hard not to sink into a relaxed state.
We loved the horse riding with Julie Tulip who is mad about her horses and great with the kids, who had never sat on a horse before.
If we were ever in the region again, we would stay here.
We had a great time at Joseph and Tanya's place. The house is very neat and tidy, nicely prepared for our arrival. We were welcomed by their friend Allessandro, and at all times we could call him for questions or help. Capestrano is a friendly little town, with an impressive Medici castle. The town and area are still rather damaged by the 2009 earthquake, which was sad to see, but the beauty of the medieval villages and nature is stunning. Definitely worth going!
If you can, stay here! The Abruzzo region is incredible, and this house in Capestrano is the perfect place to rest and get away from it all in an idyllic setting. Joseph and Tanya's hospitality was incredible. We arrived after a long day of hiking to a gift bottle of wine, a fully equipped kitchen, and some basic staples to make a simple, yet delicious meal. Great place, great deal!
