Semplicemente fantastica

  • 5 of 5

Proprietà accogliente e raffinata, curata nei particolari e finemente arredata. Ida e Carmine cortesi e premurosi, ottima la pizza a lenta lievitazione, oltre alle ciliegie e gelsi raccolti direttamente dagli alberi ed il meraviglioso spettacolo notturno offertoci dalla danza di uno sciame di lucciole, per non parlare delle piroette di un buffo scoiattolo che ha tenuto impegnati i nostri tre cani di grossa taglia gentilmente accolti.

La storia della proprietà è veramente affascinante ed il ristorante e il bar vicini consigliatici fra i migliori.

Indimenticabili gli scorci lungo i sentieri nei dintorni.

Grazie ancora e arrivederci

Fantastiche Case Catalano!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fra i luoghi belli delle vacanze ho il piacere di segnalare le bellissime casette abruzzesi di Ida e Carmine, "Case Catalano", che ci hanno ospitato sulla magnifica e solitaria Majella. Vicine le più belle abbazie carolinge e benedettine del Centro Italia, da San Clemente a Casauria a San Liberatore alla Majella, da San Giovanni in Venere a Santa Maria di Propezzano a Santa Maria al Lago, all'abbazia di Carpineto sul Nora. Monti, boschi, passeggiate, lepri e case incantevoli con orto autonomo. Grazie a Ida e a Carmine! Antonella Cilento

We zouden hier altijd willen blijven

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben genoten in- en om Case Catalano in de Majella-Abruzzen. Wat een prachtige plek om vakantie te vieren! Want zoals de plaatjes doen vermoeden -een huis op een heuvel en daaromheen alleen maar natuur- zo is het ook! En wat voor natuur: zo onbeschrijfelijk mooi en puur. De wijdse heuvels, de bergen met hun kloven, de velden, de bossen, alles is even ongerept en rustgevend. Hoewel we van te voren wel een beetje bang waren voor eventuele struikrovers, bleek daar in het echt geen enkele reden voor. De sfeer om het huis is zó vredig. En voor 's nachts hebben Ida en haar man Carmine ervoor gezorgd dat niets of niemand dit complexje kan binnendringen. Wat betreft Lizard Muralis, het huis voor 4 personen waarin wij verbleven: wij zouden hier voor altijd in willen wonen. Authentiek en stijlvol ingericht, met een warme uitstraling, comfortabel met alles erop en eraan. En buiten een heerlijke plek om van de zon te genieten.

Het was voor ons een echt thuis en een prachtige basis om de natuur te beleven en te verkennen.

Ook heel belangrijk om te vermelden is dat Ida en Carmine schatten van mensen zijn die er alles aan willen doen om het hun gasten aan niets te laten ontbreken.

Trudy en Jan

La vacanza da vivere.........

  • 5 of 5

L'ospitalità e la gentilezza sono il vostro punto forte….. ci avete regalato un capodanno 2011 pieno di buoni auspici positivi! Nel vostro magnifico borgo, abbiamo trovato la bellezza e la comodità di un bel casale, la tranquillità e la serenità di una vita semplice e per questo intensa ed in ultimo, e non per importanza, una meravigliosa cornice di natura incontaminata del bel parco della Majella. Torneremo presto a trovarvi. Grazie.

La migliore vacanza di sempre

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo passato il capodanno a Case Catalano e devo dire che siamo rimasti colpiti da tutto.

A cominciare dalla bellezza della struttura, dalla posizione davvero molto tranquilla e dalla qualità della vita.

I titolari, Ida e Carmine sono delle persone semplicemente deliziose sotto ogni punto di vista.

Disponibilissimi, gentili, precisi e seri. Davvero una rarità di questi tempi.

I prezzi sono più che adeguati a ciò che la struttura offre e siamo sicuri di tornare ancora molto spesso.

Adattissimo anche a famiglie con figli (come noi) o a chi vuole gustarsi in gruppo un po di sano relax.

Le case sono splendide, pulitissime (davvero!) e molto accoglienti.

Noi ci siamo sentiti come a casa nostra e lo consigliamo a tutti.

Un paradiso da gustare, anche solo per qualche giorno o meglio per una settimana.
