I rent this pretty apartment of 80sm, located in Rovere(Abruzzi), a small village at 1450 above sea level belonging to the district of Rocca di Mezzo(Aq), on the Altopiano delle Rocche.
The house is on the main way linking the town of L'Aquila to Avezzano and it is on the 2nd floor.
-Independent entrance with your personal copy of keys
-Large space at the ground floor to put bikes, skis,etc.
-Inner stairs to the upper floors
-Large kitchen/dining room with fireplace and firewood, masonry kitchen complete with wall cupboards, accessories, gas oven and hob, fridge and TV Sat.
-Dining room with a comfortable sofa
-Very large passage to the night zone
-1 bedroom with two single beds and a very brightful window with panoramic view
-1 bathroom with washbasin, bidet, toilet bowl and shower with scrolling panel
-1 bedroom with a doublebed and Tv on the wall
-Water, Light and Heating system are independent and every room has a its own radiator
-Private Car Parking
-Supermarket is at 10mts
-Ovindoli is 2kms far away
-La Magnolia skiing park is 2kms far away
-Rocca di Mezzo is also 2kms far away where it is possible to find stores, bars, traditional restaurants and pizzashops.
The flat is for single, couple or family for a maximum of 4 people.
It has got everything as if you were at your home.
There are kitchen utensils, you can cook inside, wash your clothes and there are no other people inside while you are in.
The place is very silent and quiet, clean and it is perfect to pass your stay both in summer and wintertime.
Skiing Parks are only 2kms far away and the nearest towns are Ovindoli and Rocca di Mezzo full of bars, typical restaurants, supermarkets and several stores of any kind.
I recommend everyone to respect the space and things being inside with GREAT CARE AND ATTENTION.
Guest will be given a personal copy of keys and they'll be free to get in or get out whenever they want.
It is easy to reach this place by car(in winter you'd better mount proper tyres or snow chains), there are some buses to L'Aquila or Celano but not too often!
Car is the best solution to move around.
Come specificato nella descrizione, l'appartamento è una vera e propria casa e ha praticamente tutto: utensili da cucina, forno, piano cottura, frigorifero, lavatrice, etc.
E' permesso usare tutto sempre avendone MASSIMA CURA RISPETTO ED ATTENZIONE.

As specified in the above description, this flat is a real house and it has everything: utensils, oven, hob, fridge, washing machine, etc.
It is allowed to use everything but with CARE ATTENTION AND RESPECT.
It is not a flatshare, so who rents it he will have his own privacy and won't be sharing with anyone else
Gianluca was incredibly responsive and helpful prior to my arrival. He answered all questions and provided good advice.
The house is well located and quite spacious as the other reviews mention. From my experience, as long as Gianluca and his father Romeo are happy with you, they will go out of their way to do nice things, offer help, etc. Really.
Unfortunately - and I don't know why as I had booked well in advance - the house was not prepared for a guest when I arrived, which created some issues, ending in a verbal threat as I was leaving and some very unprofessional, even nasty, communication afterward. After over eight hours of fruitless attempts to resolve the issue, I was forced to submit a formal complaint through AirBnB. Some of the details follow, but if you don't want to read that much, my summary is this: if nothing goes wrong, you will probably have a great time like all the other reviews say. I truly believe that. If anything goes wrong - and I mean anything - do not be surprised if you are given the run-around, ignored, insulted, blamed, or even threatened. I could never in good conscious recommend staying here, and I certainly would discourage anyone who doesn't speak perfect Italian as well as any females traveling alone.
Only the day before I arrived, Gianluca told me he was not going to be at the property - his father would. His father speaks no English. When I found the house to be dirty (truly dirty: enough hair in the shower to back up the water, dried milk inside of a "clean" pot, a footprint of some thick substance on the bathroom mat, a dirty interior of the refrigerator, dust on the sill, hair in the sink, and large dustballs around the house), I contacted Gianluca immediately and sent pictures. He was prompt in his response, claiming it had never happened before, which I believed, from the previous reviews. I then tried to go to sleep, but truly couldn't because it was so cold (-8 Celsius outside). The radiator and heat in the house were on. I cannot say why there were issues in that room, but there were. I slept in my coat. The first morning there, I had no water. The pipes had frozen, which I was blamed for (no one told me to leave the faucet open a bit). After a dirty, unprepared welcome, a freezing night, and no water, I began asking for a refund. That was when they got nasty.
I hate leaving a bad review, but AirBnB is about honesty and trust. The other hosts I spoke with about it were shocked and strongly encouraged an honest review, so I hope it is helpful to all. Truthfully, Rovere has plenty of places to stay if you don't want to take the risk.
4 giorni spettacolari, il Sig. Romeo e il figlio Gianluca sono di un ospitalità e di un accoglienza più unica che rara.
La casa da subito un ottimo feeling dentro è davvero presente ogni confort e cosa principale è ben riscaldata. Si stà davvero bene gli spazi sono molto grandi.
La posizione è super sia per il giorno (piste) che per la sera (ristoranti e supermercati).
Spero di tornare presto...
La casa di Gianluca è perfetta per qualche giorno in montagna, a pochi km dalle piste, facile da trovare, silenziosa, market di fronte casa, ambiente rustico e munita di tutto il necessario e l'host è a completa disposizione e molto ospitale, ci ha anche fatto trovare dei dolci tipici locali. La raccomando vivamente a chi volesse passare qualche giorno immerso nella natura.-----
------Gianluca's house is ideal for a few days in the mountains, easy to find, just a short drive to the skiing facilities, very quite at night, market across the road, very close to the village and fully equipped. The host was very obliging and reliable, he also bought us some local puddings which we found upon arrival. I truly recommend this accommodation for a few days surrounded by nature.
Esperienza molto positiva, appartamento confortevole e delizioso e Gianluca e suo padre, Romeo, estremamente disponibili ad ogni nostra richiesta. Sicuramente una vacanza da ripetere anche per piu di tre giorni!!
La casa di gianluca è molto ospitale, pulita e ben fornita e lui e la sua famiglia ospitali e gentili... insomma una fantastica esperienza, da rifare!
Lovely cozy apartment,I can recommend it to anyone planning to spend some time in these mountains. We had a great time with my kids, very convenient place to go to the ski slopes, nice little charming town, great views, nice people, Gianluca's father greeted us and was a great host, nice person to talk to, and made our stay very enjoyable. The house was very complete, with all you could need, tv, washing, cooking facilities, excellent. We went to campo felice for some ski, is may not be great in Europe standards but was very nice, incredible weather, and we had great fun. We will return for some more of abruzzo's mountains.
Thanks Gianluca and Romeo
Ottima ospitalita. La casa e grande ed equipaggiata di tutto. Ottimo il riscaldamento. Consigliatissimo!

I love travelling, eating, drinking, Music and Art, smiling, meeting new people and knowing new things.I am an optimistic person and I love life !
I want people staying at my house feel at their own ease, enjoy and above all RESPECT what they find.
I did not know about this big opportunity offered by AIRBNB that has been suggested to me by one of my friends who has been using it for a long time.
The penthouse for rent is MY CURRENT HOME where I live alone with noone else inside and I decided to rent it because the house is quite big so I am not using completely the entire space.
Before booking, just feel free to choose whether staying on your own or with me inside.
I can rent for any kind of need: work, holiday, short stay, long stay to single persons, friends, family or couple.
The house is very pretty, clean and perfect so please DO RESPECT WHAT YOU FIND !

Voglio che la gente che soggiorna nella mia abitazione si senta a proprio agio, si diverta e sopratutto RISPETTI ciò che trova.
Non sapevo dell'esistenza di questa grande opportunità offerta da AIRBNB che mi è stata suggerita da un mio amico che già la utilizza da tempo.
L'attico in affitto è la mia attuale abitazione dove vivo per conto mio senza nessun altro dentro e ho deciso di affittarlo perchè è piuttosto grande e non utilizzo del tutto l'intero spazio.
Prima di riservare il soggiorno, siete liberi di scegliere se averlo tutto per Voi oppure con me dentro.
Affitto per ogni tipo di esigenza: lavoro, vacanza, soggiorno breve, soggiorno lungo a persone singole, amici, famiglia o coppia.
La casa è molto bella, pulita e perfetta per cui RISPETTATE CIO' CHE TROVATE !
