About this listing
After a few years of renovating a part of a XVI century convent in the beautiful historical center of Sulmona, I am proud to say that the work has been completed and I am very pleased with the result. I offer a two bedroom apartment, one bathroom, living/dining room and separate fully equipped kitchen. There are also two balconies. The apartment is ideal for a maximum of four people.
The house has just been completed in 2013 and it has been renovated to a high standard. There is central heating and free WiFi (free internet connection). As this is a very old structure, the walls are very thick and there is no need for air conditioning. The temperature remains pleasant even during the summer period. If need it there are funs available. Flat TV scream is in the living room. Sheets for beds and two towels per person will be provided.
Moreover, I will welcome you with a free “aperitivo” (cocktail) on my beautiful panoramic terrace on the top floor of the property. The views from there are the best of Sulmona. Just spectacular!
We are located in the historical center of Sulmona at just one minute from the Corso Ovidio (main street) and the main building in town or Palazzo dell’Annunziata. Traffic is very limit through my street. It is very quite. However, if you bring your car and need a free parking space we have enough of it at just two minutes walk.
The place has been furnished with antique furniture to make your holiday in Sulmona very special. Sulmona, located in the center of the region of Abruzzo, at 1h and 30min from Rome and 45min from Pescara is the perfect town to explore the three national parks of the center of Italy: National Park of Majeilla, Gran Sasso and National Park of Abruzzo. All of them within a distance between 20min to 40 minutes. Also there are several charming medieval villages at less than 25 minutes drive from Sulmona. If you want to go to the beach, the Adriatic Sea is just 50 minutes away.
Continental breakfast is included.
When you arrive I will give you two sets of keys and the free internet code.
We had a wonderful time in Sulmona. Victor's apartment is well appointed, quiet and very comfortable. It is in the old historical section of the city which makes it very convenient to walk out the door and be in the center of a charming Abruzzo town.
Victor is a first rate host. He goes above and beyond merely providing guests with a place to stay. He met us at the bus station in Sulmona and helped us navigate around the city.
On the first day of our trip he took us to a small Medieval town (Pacentro) where he described the history of the city and introduced us to a friend of his from New York. He loves Sulmona and the surrounding areas wants to share that love with his guests.
If you want to get beyond the tourist cities of Italy and see the beautiful Abruzzo area, I would recommend that you contact Victor and stay at his place in the heart of Sulmona. You will love the experience and feel like you've touched an authentic part of Italy.
Victor's newly restored apartment in beautiful Sulmona was an ideal choice for getting the quaint experience the city has to offer. Victor was a great host, meeting us warmly upon arrival and inviting us for a drink on his beautiful terrace overlooking Sulmona and the frosted mountains that surround it. All of our basic needs were met, and the apartment was very clean. Our group of four had a wonderful time in the city, and Victor's apartment was perfectly located for the authentic Italian experience so many hope for.
This appartment is great located in the centre. You can easily park your car just outside the city walls, at 3 minutes walking distance. And leave it there, to see Sulmona at foot. Inside the house there is everything, even some candles. Bedrooms, bathroom and living room; everything is to a high standard. Victor is a friendly host, and knows all about Sulmona.
Our host was away at the time but he left Anita in charge who made us feel very welcome and gave us all the help we needed. The apartment was very clean and well fitted out and ideal for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. It was perfectly located in the historic centre and Anita arranged parking permits for us. Sulmona was a beautiful and friendly place and we would highly recommend it for a visit.
This was a great two-room apartment in the middle of Sulmona, centrally located for our four day excursion to Italy's Abruzzo region. Victor helped us get situated and was available by phone if we had any questions. Parking was about a 5 minute walk down-hill, just outside the pedestrian-only city center. The rooms and beds were comfortable. In all, the apartment was small but functional--for example, I wouldn't have wanted to cook much (but it's okay with so many good restaurants around). Wi-Fi worked well, the rooms were comfortable despite the hot temperatures outside, and we did not get much noise from the quiet street outside the window. Could see Sulmona's surrounding mountains from the small terrace. It was a excellent base of operations.
Gordon, the business partner of Victor, checked is in as Victor had a family emergency. Gordon was on-time and a wonderful host. We had cocktails on his penthouse terrace with a view to kill. He fried gnocchi and it was enough for a full dinner, and they were super yummy!
The apartment was really nice, modern, warm, clean, quiet and comfortable.
The kitchen was a bit small for our taste, we like to cook one meal a day and his was not the best place to cook a gourmet meal, but the two pots will get by in a fix!
I'm any case we give them 2 thumbs up
