Entsprach nicht den Erwarungen

  • 1 of 5

Das Bild vom Haus täuscht über die waren Gegebenheiten. Es zeigt nur die obere Etage hinter einer schönen Hecke. Die Wohnung liegt jedoch im Erdgeschoss und hier wäre eine Sanierung der Fassade dringend erforderlich. Die massiven Gitte vor den Fenstern und die Wände rund ums Haus erzeugen die Atmosphäre einer Souterrainwohnung. Das versprochene W-Lan war nicht vorhanden und auch die Zufahrt zum Haus ist kein Vergnügen. Betreuung vor Ort fehlte trotz E-Mail-Kontakt mit der Verwalterin. Wir haben uns nicht wohlgefühlt und sind früher abgereist. Den Stern gibt es für den Pool der den Erwartungen entsprach.

Historical Penne is a town and commune in the province of Pescara, in the Abruzzo Region of Italy. It sits in the hills between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea.

Penne's churches include the 12th-century church of Santa Maria in Colleromano, and the Duomo, which now houses the Diocese Museum including a crypt dating from the 8th century. Other churches include Sant'Agostino (with a historical bell-tower), San Giovanni Battista, San Giovanni Evangelista, Annunziata, Madonna del Carmine, San Nicola, San Domenico. The main characteristic of the old town is its streets and houses are built in bricks, so in the past Penne was known as 'the small Siena'.
