We just returned from our trip to Italy and we regret we didn’t stay longer at Ivan’s place. We have been in Italy several times but this was our first time in Abruzzo and we had a great experience, thanks to Ivan and his family! Ivan is indeed a great host and he did everything to make us feel welcome. When we first met, he took us to the gas station and when we arrived at his beautiful house, high up in the mountains, we found all the things we needed for breakfast and he even surprised us with a bottle of wine. The house is spacious and clean and has everything you need. In the evening it becomes a bit chill but most of the time we returned quite late and went straight to bed and at our last night we enjoyed sitting at the fireplace.
One of the things we liked most about Ivan is the passion for his region that comes straight out of his heart and the way he talks about all the beautiful things this part of Italy has to offer. If you are a lover of mountains and nature and like to visit authentic places, this is a great place to be. We did some hiking at Prati di Tevo and Campo Imperatore (small Tibet) and visited beautiful places like Campli and Civitella del Tronto. Another great experience was a dinner between only local people, in one of the restaurants Ivan recommended us.
For us it was a great experience. We will certainly return and next time we will stay much longer!
Ivan really is a wonderful host. From the very first message we exchanged he showed us his welcoming nature and was very helpful in providing us with all the information we needed to plan our excursions. The apartment was the perfect size and had all we needed.
It is located just outside a very typical small mountain village, in the midst of the Gran Sasso National Park woods: the perfect place for people who enjoy being immersed in nature, surrounded by the most gorgeous views of woods and mountain peaks.
We so much enjoyed staying in the apartment that we ended up spending every evening at home, eating our dinner with the fire going because the weather was quite chilly, and finishing off our evenings either chatting outside while enjoying the evening sky and the views from the front yard, or reading and relaxing inside the home, enjoying the fire that gave so much warmth to the place to really make it feel like "our home". Very relaxing and peaceful.
During the day we went on excursions and enjoyed thoroughly every and each one. There are so many tracks accessible from there, and for all and any proficiency level: from normal (easy) 4/5 hours walks through woods and mountain peaks, up to proper mountaineering, free climbing or mountain-biking tracks. It really is a feast for outdoor freaks like my lot was!
Also, there are many historical villages and towns nearby that are a must to visit: starting from Teramo and Isola del Gran Sasso, Castelli, Atri, Pietracamela, L'Aquila (that was devastated by an earthquake in 2006 and is still being rebuilt) and many others that certainly Ivan will tell you about.
Last but not least, the people who live in that area (from the neighbours to the inhabitants of the nearby town and any person we have met in our trips) are all very welcoming and really eager to help you out anyway they can and make you feel comfortable... Whether you are at the shops or waiting for the bus to town, young and old ones will all talk to you in a very friendly and open way. Very, very refreshing!
I can only recommend Ivan as a host and his apartment which is just as described and a perfect base for your outdoor excursions.
We had an unforgettable, interesting, relaxing and refreshing holiday, literally filled with beauty and memories of great talks with lovely people. We came home felling richer and filled of energy and hope.
Certainly one of the best vacations my friends and I had.
Il soggiorno ad Altavilla è stato pienamente soddisfacente: tre giorni di relax con amici e bimbi e due belle sciate sulle piste di Prati di Tivo, che si trovano a una quarantina di minuti di auto. Il Parco del Gran Sasso è - come già sapevo - splendido e l'ospitalità di Ivan eccellente. Il suo appartamento è ben attrezzato ed è stato un piacere trascorrerci il capodanno con la stufa a pieno ritmo e un agnello saporito cucinato sulle braci del caminetto...
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ivan's place in the Abruzze. His place is cozy and has a great view on the Gran Sasso mountains. As the house is located in a small and remote mountain village, you have to keep in mind though that you have to drive considerably through winding roads to visit any other location in the area (even small shops as the village only has a small bar). But the drives are very scenic and the house is centrally located among a range of outdoor opportunities. A small improvement would be to have a small terrace outside from where you can enjoy the great vista while enjoying a good glass of wine or coffee, as now there are trees directly in front of the balcony blocking the view (ok you just have to walk 30 m to enjoy the view).
Ivan is a great host who goes at great lengths to make your stay as comfortable as possible. He is knowledgeable about the area and gladly shares his experience and whatever other information he has available.
