I'm a teacher of Italian and English to foreigners. My husband is an architect.
We like travelling and meeting people of different nationalities. It is a pleasure for us to welcome guests in our apartments and help them to discover the beauties of the Frentan Area, if they wish.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your apartment.We were all very comfortable, we felt like we were at home and it served as a great "home base" for our visits of the region. Lanciano is a wonderful place. We hope to return soon to spend more time enjoying the beauty of the area and the hospitable people.Thanks again from the Canadians!
This apartment was everything that I imagined and more from the way that it was advertised. A really beautiful, spacious, airy and colourfully furnished. . When we first walked in we were left speechless at how well it was set up, spotlessly clean and tidy. I felt that I was in my own home. The apartment is in a very quiet lane to our liking. What we really liked is the balcony that wraps right around the apartment and is great for entertaining and just relaxing under the sunshine, and gives you a sense of freedom and of the outside. We are not really used to living in an apartment where we are confined to restricted living, or going up and down with the lift, as in Australia we live in our own separate house and landscaped gardens. I must say that the two air-conditioners were really a god-send on those very hot and humid nights that we had, and kept us very comfortable for sleeping and we felt refreshed in the morning.
The owners Francesca and Diego were two most delightful people. Our friendship clicked from the very start, and were always eager to help us in any which way they could. We will never forget their hospitality.
Should we ever need to travel again in this part of Italy we will definitely book this fantastic apartment and will honestly recommend this type of accommodation to any would be traveller.
Thank you Francesca and Diego!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Modern, clean, spacious and impeccably designed apartment in a modern building. Beautiful 10 min stroll to the centre of the city. Ample parking; restaurants and shopping within walking distance.Centrally located to all roads to beach, mountains or autostrada. Gorgeous wrap around balcony with beautiful birds chirping in the green space. Bright and airy. Wifi available throughout apartment and balcony.All has been thought out , lacking nothing. The apartment was very warm and heated thru out. Day trip to Rome was 2.5hr; Bari 3hr...Kitchen and bathrooms were conveniently stocked with basics. Hosts/owners Francesca and Diego were friendly, attentive and accommodating.
Highly recommended as a 5star alternative to a hotel.
Francesca e suo marito sono stati degli anfitrioni impeccabili. Sin da subito ci hanno fornito tutte le informazioni di cui avevamo bisogno e sono stati cortesi e disponibili. L'appartamento Sole, dove abbiamo alloggiato, è esattamente come si vede nelle foto: pulito, spazioso e accogliente; situato in una zona comoda per il parcheggio e poco distante dal centro, dai supermercati e dalle vie principali che portano al mare. Ripeterei senz'altro l'esperienza in questo alloggio e la consiglierò a chiunque volesse visitare Lanciano e dintorni.
The apartment was a perfect base for our holiday. We were three generations visiting Italy together and Lanciano proved a wonderful, unspoilt location with few foreign tourists. It is close to the sea (10 min drive to the Costa Dei Trabocchi) and mountains (for caves, tree-top adventues and more), and only a short journey from Rome (couple of hours by car; easy day-trip).
The apartment itself is well equipped, a good size and within walking distance from the centre of Lanciano where there are a range of lovely bars and restaurants.
I really can't think of a better place to discover Italy than this corner of Abruzzo!
Apartment Sole is in a quiet residential part of Lanciano. It is a light and airy apartment which is very comfortable and well equipped for a relaxing stay. The town centre is approximately a 10 to 15 minute walk. We found the owners Francesca and Diego to be most helpful and would thoroughly recommend this apartment.
The apartment was superb, and Francesca and Diego had thought of everything to make our stay there enjoyable. It was very comfortable in every way. They were very kind and helpful in telling us the best, most interesting places to visit. The location was a short walk from the old town of Lanciano, which has many attractions and shops. We would highly recommend this listing.
