We had some wonderful days in Capestrano, at Joseph&Tanya's house. The house has an excellent location with a very nice view on the historic centre of the town. Terraces, balconies provide the joy to admire the look. Furniture, installations in the house are almost new and work perfectly. Our careful and never tired guide was Allessando, now our friend Chicco who was an ideal host making his best to try to substitute J&T who, from the distance, also showed their care for us. We went to visit the town of St. John of Capistran and found a unique Italian town, far from the tourist hordes, with mysterious medieval streets. Hopefully we shall be able to go back; it was a wonderful time for us and weather also was excellent.
What a great place to stay in a fabulous little city!! Comfortable, beautiful, just about every convenience, great location, great neighbors, sufficient parking. Liked it so much, got to go back and stay longer!
We came to Capestrano with our 2 daughters to let them get an authentic Italian experience and we were not disappointed. Alessandro, our contact there, was extremely friendly and helpful. He is an affable larrikin who is enthusiastic about visitors coming to the Abruzzo region but less crazy about seatbelts! Be prepared to give your Italian language skills a bit of a workout.
The house is the real deal down amongst the narrow roads with views up to the castle. With the shutters on the windows that block out all the light, we awoke much later than we usually do, to the sounds of the castle bells chiming the time. Capestrano is so quiet and still, it is hard not to sink into a relaxed state.
We loved the horse riding with Julie Tulip who is mad about her horses and great with the kids, who had never sat on a horse before.
If we were ever in the region again, we would stay here.
We had a great time at Joseph and Tanya's place. The house is very neat and tidy, nicely prepared for our arrival. We were welcomed by their friend Allessandro, and at all times we could call him for questions or help. Capestrano is a friendly little town, with an impressive Medici castle. The town and area are still rather damaged by the 2009 earthquake, which was sad to see, but the beauty of the medieval villages and nature is stunning. Definitely worth going!
If you can, stay here! The Abruzzo region is incredible, and this house in Capestrano is the perfect place to rest and get away from it all in an idyllic setting. Joseph and Tanya's hospitality was incredible. We arrived after a long day of hiking to a gift bottle of wine, a fully equipped kitchen, and some basic staples to make a simple, yet delicious meal. Great place, great deal!
Joseph has been a friend since school days - and we've tracked each other through numerous different countries over the years! Lots of fun, a warm host and sure to make you feel welcome in his home.
Have known Joseph since his young days with more of a fro than these respectable days. Very sound, with encyclopaedic knowledge of unimogs and anything mechanical. Alas it has been too long since we have caught up. But i have no doubt Joseph's home will be of sound footing and engineering.
Joseph and Tanya are two wonderfully fun and happy hosts who, through their well traveled and cultural openness will do a great job at inviting and sharing with people of all background all you need to know about the relaxing and typical things to be experienced. Having known them both for several years, I can positively recommend a stay in their lovingly renovated pied a terre
