Jan and Geoff are amazing hosts, who are so welcoming. The apartment was lovely and the pool was fanatasic. The location is great, so close to the amazing beaches of abruzzo. The road to the house is a little scary the first time as it is quite steep and bumpy, but we didn't have any problems in our rented Renault Clio. Jan and Geoff invited us to a welcome meal which was wonderful and gave us time to discuss the local area, best beaches and places of interest to visit. We would recommend to both couples and families and we will most definitely be visiting again. Sarafina and Debbie

We (engaged couple) loved our stay here. The apartment is big, clean, and comfortable, with all the furnishings you could want. Jan and Geoff are great hosts, and made us feel like the place was our home. They were really helpful and accommodating with any issues we had before or during the trip, and gave us great advice about the surrounding area. The location is incredible - from the window you can see mountains on one side, the sea on the other, and vineyards and olive groves in between. Jan and Geoff will happily recommend lots of delicious restaurants all around the area (and will even book for you if you don't speak great Italian!). Citta Sant'Angleo and Atri are beautiful nearby towns - definitely take a drive to both if you can. Thank you Jan and Geoff!

We had a really good time at Jan's and Geoff's place. The house was very comfortable and we spend lots of hours at the pool. We always felt very welcome. Jan and Geoffrey were helpful all the time and told us about the places worth seeing. One day we were invited to a barbecue with some neighbours and family. This was a fantastic evening. We'd like to thank you for your hospitality. By the way, the pizza Geoff made was really delicious!

We really had a wonderful time at the Casa di Pietre. Jan and Geoff are really nice people, who welcomed us with a nice meal. We stayed for two weeks. Although they also live there, there was enough privacy. The pool was really lovely and maintained on a daily basis. The big advantage of the location is that the see is nearby (10-15 minutes by car). So you can have a beach holiday and then retreat in the hills at night. But about half of the time we didn't even go to the beach and just stayed there. It's really calm and in the summer, the cool breeze on the hill makes it all the more pleasant to just stay "at home". The appartment is perfect, everything has been renovated so there's a modern kitchen and bathroom. Everybody in our family had a very pleasant holiday.

Geoff and I are English, we have been resident here in Italy for 9 years and love it. Abruzzo is extremely friendly, with lots to do and see, it is where you can still experience the food, wine, culture and vistas of the 'REAL ITALY' of your (and our) dreams.

Our home is a renovated farmhouse, we love having family and friends to visit and our guests soon become friends.

We hope to see you soon
