Novelia's home is just as she describes and so much more! It is very clean, and well appointed. She is listed as a Airbnb super host, but she goes beyond that and makes you a feel as though you are a part of her family. We are a family of 5. (My wife and I and 3 kids ages 9, 7, and 5). The place was a perfect size and gave us plenty of room. When we arrived she had cooked an amazing vegetable soup, and had other snacks and amenities waiting for us! After a long day of travel from the U.S.A., it was so nice to be able to enjoy a home cooked meal, and not worry about heading out to a market, or finding a place to eat. Check in was great, Novelia met us at the door and showed us around her place. She offered to take us around the 1st night we were there, but as I mentioned, we decided to stay in and enjoy the food Novelia had prepared. Throughout our stay, she was very responsive to all of our questions. She was beyond accommodating! She works at a beautiful abbey, just a 7 minute drive from her place. There are some amazing sites, and artwork, to see there. She also took us to the Confetti factory, something Sulmona is famous for, and then to a special place for our kids, where they could see some animals and have a picnic. Novelia offered us so much, but it never felt intrusive. After 6 days in Sulmona, we feel we have an extended family in Sulmona with Novelia, and her husband Pepe.

This apartment was fantastic. Not only was it in the perfect location but it had every amenity we could have needed (air conditioning, towels, washer, drinks, snacks, etc.). Novelia and her husband, Peppe, were incredible hosts. They live right downstairs so they're always around in case you need to reach them. They went above and beyond any AirBnb host we've ever had. Novelia had cooked some food for us for when we arrived and she & Peppe even took us on a tour of Sulmona one evening. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Highly recommended...would definitely stay there again if we ever return to Sulmona!

The "Home of the Heart" truly lives up to its name. Novelia and her husband Pepe are the most gracious and generous hosts I have ever met. They went above and beyond to make my short stay in Sulmona an unforgettable experience. Sulmona is a beautiful gem in the heart of Abruzzo and Novelia's place is perfectly situated to discover all that it has to offer...history, art, regional cuisine, nature, tranquility yet also the liveliness and charm of the town centre. By far the best AirBnB experience I've had! Thank you Novelia and Pepe

Dear Melanie, thank you so much for the nice things you have said about me, Peppe and Sulmona. So happy that we could meet and Airbnb has played a big part. You know how important my guests are and I love to make them part of my family. As I wrote it was a shame to see you go so soon. But now that you know that there is me and Peppe waiting for you with open arms I am sure you will come back. All the best for your future, A big embrace like all Abruzzo, Novelia, Peppe

Response from Novelia:
Hi Cheryl I am happy you had a positive staying in my house, it coudn't have been any other way, as I told you the RESPECT for my guests is sacred, like the food , the wine, drinks, home made cake, prepared to give the best welcome in many cases the welcome starts at the train station , all of this and much more makes THE HOUSE OF THE HEART a unique experience, like your husband said HOME AWAY FROM HOME. Hope to see you again all the best, Novelia.

I am a very outgoing person, I like to meet people and show them the area where I live. I speak english well, since Canada as been part of my life for a few years when I was very young.
All I can say is that if you come over to me you will never want to go away. I forgot to write that I am a very good cook too... I work for the italian goverment and my office is placed in one of the biggest Abbey of all Europe; it will be my pleasure to guide you and discover this wonderful monument.
What else can I say? All you have to do is come to Novelia's Penthouse, I like to think of it as the HOUSE OF THE HEART because I put my heart in everything I do, and the welcome that you will receive, like no where else.

Thank you for the attention, Novelia.

P.S. My life motto is "CAPTURE THE MOMENT" Ciao
