“Relaxing & beautiful place to stay in Abruzzo”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful setting with wonderful views over the Abruzzo countryside from inside the appartment (through the cleverly placed window enabling it to be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed!), from the terrace outside the villa and, best of all, from the beautiful pool.
David & Pauline are brilliant hosts, from David's initiation drive round to locate the local supermarkets and restaurants, welcoming bottle of wine and various other essential items and loads of information about the area, always with directions on how to find everything to spotlessly clean and comfortable accommodation.
The pool and terrace with loungers and shade umbrellas is a huge bonus and was essential during our stay with temperatures in the high 30s. Being able to cool off in the pool was bliss, as was being able to retreat into the cool accommodation with its efficient air conditioning.
A thoroughly enjoyable holiday - peace & quiet guaranteed......no kids!

“beautiful and tranquil location and excellent hosts”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We thoroughly recommend Villas for 2. David and Pauline were great hosts. It was very useful to have David's expert advice on best places to visit, restaurants and shops with detailed travel directions and guide books for when you get there. The accommodation was very clean and well appointed and the air conditioning was wonderful!!. Pool was lovely and clean with salt water and fabulous views over stunning hills and mountains. Garden full of lovely shrubs with butterflies and swallows flitting about. Very convenient location for visiting wonderful local hill top towns and only 30 minutes drive to nearest beaches. Local wine highly recommended!

“Even better second time”

We returned to Villa La Majelletta again this year as we enjoyed it so much last year and it didn't disappoint. We had a truly wonderful two weeks exploring the stunning countryside and small hill top villages which look as thought they are tumbling down the hills. We had some terrific meals in Lanciano and near to the Villa at very reasonable prices as this area is for the Italians and not full of 'tourist' establishments. Wonderful walking area if that is your thing. The pool was as good as ever and really appreciated when the temperature rose. David and Pauline, who are wonderful hosts, have thought of everything for your stay even down to towels for the beach as well as for the pool!

Thanks B and M - it was a pleasure to see you both again. It means a lot to us when guests return here for a second time (or more !) We're really pleased we fulfilled your expectations and that you enjoyed this year's stay every bit as much as last year's.

Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a two week stay in 'Villa Majelletta'. It was the most relaxing holiday ever. The villa was perfectly sized and very well equipped to meet all our needs, and was immaculately clean. There was air-conditioning but we did not use it much because the thick walls kept the villa cool anyway. The pool and the views are fabulous. The website and the photos are an honest, accurate and true reflection of where you will stay, with the 'real' thing truly surpassing our expectations.
Hosts, David and Pauline, have considered everything to make your stay as relaxing as possible. They are approachable and willing to share their vast knowledge of the area with you, equally they do not impose.
Abruzzo is a delightful area, it is not swarming with tourists and the 'locals' are so helpful and pleasant. We do not speak Italian, but this was not a problem. I would whole heartedly recommend this villa and the surrounding area to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing get away. We will be returning !

“Villasfor2 - ABRUZZO - ITALYS BEST KEPT SECRET”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spent 4 days at Villasfor2 in July 2014. David & Pauline were wonderful hosts, The villas were very well appointed and the setting was amazing. The views to the mountains have to be seen to be believed. The villas were a great base to explore Abruzzo from the mountains to the Adriatic coastline. We will definetely return one day. Thank you David & Pauline for making our trip to Abruzzo a memorable experience.

“Lovely Villa with fabulous views”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

If you want glorious countryside around you with fabulous views from your Villa and the real Italy with few tourists - look no further. La Majelletta is very well equipped with all you need including essential supplies (tea, coffee,washing up liquid etc) which are topped up if needed during your stay. The pool is excellent with very good sunbeds and is surrounded by glorious flowers and again that view. David and Pauline are charming and attentive hosts, there if you need them but discreet if you don't.

“Excelelent value”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed here 3 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. David and Pauline were the perfect hosts. Unobstrusive but always nearby if you needed any assistance. They also provided a wealth of information on the region and things to do, and great restaurant recommendations. The villa's are comfortable and appointed with all the necessities that a couple would require for a stay. We loved the view from the bed out through a large square window over the surrounding countryside. Would strongly recommend a stay here.
