Memorable and enjoyable summer stay
This was an entirely memorable and enjoyable summer stay for us all, four adults and two young children. The apartment’s location is intriguing, hidden in the heart of Loreto’s old quarter. (There was some nearby building work temporarily restricting street access, but wandering through the maze of alleys is one of the pleasures). We were there during a massive heatwave, so using the spectacular upper patio would have been torture, but inside, the tall ceilings and traditional construction kept things bearable and we even able to set up a refreshing paddling pool for the kids in the courtyard. There's an awful lot of house to spread out in, and the children in particular enjoyed the spaciousness.
Thoroughly enjoyed the local eateries (especially New Evo), and cooking in the large well-appointed and well-stocked kitchen was a delight, with the nearby supermarket able to supply all needs. Trips into the local countryside and to nearby Penne and the coast not to be missed. Thanks to David and Kathryn for facilitating the children’s sleeping arrangements, and for being such friendly and responsive owners.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our house . You are very welcome.
We hope that your move to italy has been stress free and wiah you an enjoyable life in castilenti

A week in Loreto
We spent a very relaxing week in Loreto. The appartment was in an old house, but was very spacious and comfortable. Much bigger than we thought and well-equippped and well looked after. We spent several nights on the sun-roof looking over the hills with a glass of wine. Wonderful.
Loreto is a lovely little town, with a number of good restaurants. However, we also made use of the well-equipped kitchen and made a few dinners using home-cooked food. There are a number of small shops (vegetable shop, fish shop and butcher) where we bought what we needed, but there is also a big supermarket very close by. Nothing beats those local vegetables in taste and flavour. Try the sausages from the butcher - heavenly.
Loreto is only a short distance to Pescara and the beaches there, we went there a couple of times. really nice.
Only one thing was a bit misleading. The flat was advertized as "in the mountains" - not quite true. If you want to go proper hiking in the Gran Sasso National Park- this is not the really a place to stay for such activities unless you like driving. Although on the map the distances are not very far, to get to the nearest hiking trails past Ferindola meant driving an hour one way on very damaged, windy roads. The best hikes were further afield, and to be in the real high country takes nearly two hours (one way) of bumpy, painful driving. We had to go to Farindola to get a proper topographical hiking map from the Park Office there. The owners of the flat went to great lengths to provide maps of hiking trails, but some of the trails appeared to have deteriorated - probably the result of this side of the Abruzzo being somewhat neglected. There are not many people about. However, the mountains are beautiful, the people very helpful, the food is good and if you want to really chill out - thats where you should go.
Very comfortable. Ideally situated.
If you are looking for a quiet break in an amazing location with friendly locals in a very nice appartment with all amenities - you can't go wrong with this.
P.S. Kathryn and David are also very helpful and accommodating.
Thank you Paul for your kind words ,We are very happy you enjoyed your stay in Loreto . We appreciate your comments
Kind regards David and Kathryn
A wonderful home in a fascinating area
From our first meeting with Rita, the local caretaker, to our last goodbye, our stay was thoroughly enjoyable.
Walking through the town was a pleasure, cooking supplies we're easily accessible, reasonable and fresh.
I will recommend this location to friends.
Classic large medieval appartment
We felt the appartment was a very good location with a a genuine feel. We all voted it the best bed during our trip. We where able to cook several times and enjoyed this with such a large kitchen. In addition, we loved the breeze from the somewhat elevation. It is a beautiful area. I would rent there again! Thanks for a wonderful time and sharing your place with us. The housekeeper that let us in (Rita) was extremely helpful and nice.

Holidays like in "Room With A View"
Staying with our hosts really was like taking our home away for us with four kids aged 6 to 16, if not better: the place was like an Englishman's castle, cool and calm in an Italian summer; the medieval town against the panorama of the Gran Sasso speaks for itself; the caretaker was there for us 24/24, be it to recommend the best ice or skewers in town, to take our girls to the doctor, or to advise us on the freshest fruit, or the nicer beaches.
Definitely an allrounder for impressionist views, for hiking, Pescara's metropolitan charme, and, of course, for a beach holiday.

P.S.: O yes, of course, the property was clean, fully equipped, and as we found it on the net.
"A room with a view"
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about our apartment in lovely Abruzzo. We were glad to hear that your stay was made enjoyable by our hospitable caretaker Rita. although we do not live in Italy as we work in the U.K it is very comforting to know that our guests have been well informed during their stay and I will pass on your kind comments onto Rita.

Die Wohnung ist perfekt im historischen Zentrum von Loreto gelegen und nur drei Minuten Fußweg von der Piazza entfernt, wo flaniert oder ein Kaffee oder Drink in einer der zahlreichen Bars zu sich genommen werden kann. Die auf die einheimische Küche spezialisierten Restaurants sind schnell zu Fuß zu erreichen und einen Besuch wert, wie das New Evo und das Restaurant im Hotel Loreblisk, von wo aus man einen atemberaubenden Blick über die Stadt hat. Loreto Aprutino ist ein historisches und kulturelles Juwel, wo man die perfekten Ferien verbringen kann. Hier ist das wirkliche, Italienische Leben noch authentisch.
Ski: Roccaraso, das bekannteste Skigebiet der Region, ist zwar sehr etabliert, aber glücklicherweise nicht übermäßig modernisiert. Es liegt in einem Naturschutzgebiet, was bedeutet, dass man von den Hängen auf reinen Pulverschnee und saftige Wälder blickt. Das Skigebiet liegt etwa anderthalb Stunden von Loreto entfernt.
Eine weitere Sehenswürdigkeit ist Passo Lanciano, welche in 40 Minuten Fahrzeit schneller zu erreichen ist und ausgezeichnete Skipisten bietet.
