Wir haben ein paar wunderbare Tage in Lanciano und Umgebung verbracht. Querce ist eine voll ausgestattete Wohnung die keine Wünsche offen lässt. Alles ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, man fühlt sich einfach wohl dort. Die Gastgeber Francesca und Diego sind warmherzige, hilfsbereite Menschen. Ich glaube, ich habe bis jetzt noch keine freundlicheren Gastgeber getroffen. Herzlichen Dank! Lanciano ist ein hübsches Städtchen. Es gibt auch in der Umgebung viele lohnende Ausflugsziele. Besonders hat uns das Dorf Scanno gefallen. Auch der Nationalpark Gran Sasso ist auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert. Und uns hat das Meer besonders im Naturschutzgebiet Punta Arderci gefallen, dort ist es wild und es hat nicht viele Leute. Francesca und Diego geben gerne Ausflugstipps. Ich werde diese Wohnung und die Abruzzen unseren Freunden wärmstens empfehlen.
Our trip to Italy in March / April 2014 had been a dream in the making for years. We decided, somewhat at random, to make Lanciano in beautiful Abruzzo our home for a full five weeks; to abandon the usual tourist routine of trudging from city to city, in a hurry to see "everything" and to settle down in one spot and try to really experience life in Italy. We were incredibly fortunate in our choice of Apartment Querce, and our host Francesca. The apartment is beautiful, large, lots of light and spacious, with easily enough room for a family, though my wife and I were the only sole guests on this occasion. Though Francesca was away from Lanciano during our stay, we were put in the very capable hands of the housekeeper, Carmela, who rescued us on our first day, when we were hopelessly lost, patiently listened and helped us with our fractured Italian, provided us with groceries when needed and was a real friend to us during our visit. We will always remember and appreciate her kindness.
The apartment itself is very well appointed, with everything needed for an extended stay. the location is wonderful, a short 10 or 15 minute walk to the Centro Storico, close to shopping for food or other needs and only a 20 minute drive to the Adriatic Coast, and some of the bluest water one could ever see.
We loved our time in Lanciano and are already planning a return trip. Being close to retirement age, we will be visiting again, we hope many times.
My parents & myself stayed in apartment Sole from September 1st to the 15th. The apartment is very spacious & very clean! We enjoyed the large wrap around balcony. My parents were born in a small town beside Lanciano & my mother has not been back to Italy since she was a very young girl. We decided to rent an apartment as we wanted comfort, space & privacy. WE got that and more at the apartment Sole, we were very happy with staying the 2 weeks in Lanciano. We are very familar with Lanciano as I have been about 8 times & my father returned 3 times.
Lanciano is a wonderful historic town, with many great places to eat. The food in the region of Chieti is fabulous!
I made the booking arangements with Francesca via e-mails & she was very helpful & sincere. Upon our arrival we met her husband Diego whom was very kind & informative. In case of anything during our stay he gave his mobile number, we didn't need to contact him during our stay as we had everything we needed.
There are great shops in Lanciano, & near the apartment just below in the building next door is a fabulous wood oven pizzaria called Santa Maria. Amazing Pizza & very inespensive, there is also a bar next door with coffee & cornetti's. If you have a chance go around the corner to Rene's, fabulous cornetti & the best pastries ever!
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is interesting in staying in Lanciano.
It was an Excellent stay!
Thank you Diego & Francesca!
Grazie tanto per tutto!

"In the August 2010 we have spent 2 wonderful weeks in this apartment. It is super beautifully decorated and very clean and we felt very comfortable. It is very well equipped.
We were 3 adults and 4 children, the apartment was ideal and big enough.
We come for many years to lanciano there is a great city and there are beautiful beaches.
I can definitely recommend this apartment we felt like at home.
Also this year we spend our summer again in this apartment.
The owners are very nice and helpful.
We stayed in Francesca and Diego's apartment for 2 weeks in June 2011, the apartment was exceptional in every way, clean, modern , spacious and had everything we could have wished for. The provision of all of the essential and some non essential items was very thoughtful. We had not stayed in an apartment in Italy before and were suprised just how peaceful it was. It is accurately described on thev Holiday Rentals site. Good local shops are close by, butcher, baker, greengrocer and deli, and good restaurants and the historic town centre were a 15 minute stroll away. The nearby beaches and coastline are beautiful and the water is really clear. We visited many of the small villages on the coast and in the mountains, all of which were pretty and interesting and non touristy. All in all a wonderful apaertment in a beautiful, unspolied part of Italy.
