Pamela's house is simply but comfortably furnished with everything you might need, especially a well-equipped kitchen, and things you don't, like stunning views out. Peaceful Capestrano, like many of the Abruzzo hilltop towns, is semi-deserted but is beautiful with a beguiling ambiance and the one we liked best of those we visited (more even than the usual tourist recommendations such as Santo Stefano di Sessanio). There's a great bar/gelateria, a restaurant, pharmacy and small supermarket in town, plus mobile stalls in the market square but make sure you are aware of their opening times and dates. Pamela's comprehensive welcome pack and optional arrival meal provide a welcome supplement should you miscalculate or arrive late, as we did. Best of all is Pamela's care and consideration for your stay. Highly recommended!
A friend and I stayed in one of the farm’s larger suites and absolutely loved our time here. Even at the beginning of November the weather was dry and sunny, and our lodging was comfortably warm. We were two middle-aged ladies who felt really cared for by our host Lorenzo and his manager Marino.
Abruzzo is off the well-worn tourist path and is one of my favorite places to visit in Italy. The breathtaking mountains dusted with villages clinging to their sides, some of the best fresh food in Italy and surprisingly delicious dining in hidden restaurants everywhere.
You won’t find a lot of English speakers here unlike in the cities. But you will find friendly, helpful people who are not resentful of a constant parade of tourists as in some Italian cities. If you are like us, you will also find yourself often lost, scratching your head over the closed gate of a medieval church you have just driven 15k to reach, and squeezing your oversized car through ancient alleys on vertigous mountainsides until you can go no farther. Then there are the ski to sea opportunities, but I will let others talk of that.
We happened to be at the farm during the olive harvest. I’m sure whatever time of year you visit, you’ll find a piece of authentic Italy here. I would definitely return for a stay at Madonna degli Angeli. Thank you Lorenzo and Marino for such a wonderful visit.
