This lovely, authentic, ancient house provided an absolutely fantastic base to visit the stunningly beautiful National Park of Abruzzo. This area seems almost unvisited by tourists -
as if the Italians have kept its secret for themselves! The House was lovely. Clean and bright and with all the facilities you need. Although not huge, the house was more than adequate for our party of 5 adults and had a bed to spare. The village of Opi is fantastic - set on the top of a steep hill with pretty, narrow streets and alleyways.There are a bakery and charcuterie in the village for early morning yummy breakfasts and several inexpensive supermarkets in the nearby town. There is also a restaurant and bar in the village.The area is superbly set up for hill and mountain walking - with clearly marked trails through beautiful scenery and stunning views from the mountain tops. The nearby Lake Barrera makes for a restful day. Donnatella, our host, was lovely and really helpful about where to go, what to do and where to find the best food.
Amazed to say we saw one of the elusive brown bears and a flight of eagles but didn't come across any wolves.
We had the luck to stay one week at this outstanding place. It is a true gem that is well taken care of. You rent a piece of history in a picturesque town next to an old castle that provides a great view from its large garden. The house is fully equipped and you feel the love that the owners put into this property, providing you with a true experience of Italian hospitality.
I am looking forward to stay here again!
