The property was beyond our expectations. The town itself is very old but dont let that fool you. The people we met were very friendly and always willing to help if we needed it. In fact one night they brought us fresh produce from their garden. Michael thought of everything when he remodeled the house. We were three couples and if we ever needed some time alone the house provided us with the privacy we needed. There are two sitting areas with a tv and couch and all of the bedrooms had their own TV 2 full baths which is a Godsent when you have 3 women trying to get ready in the morning. In addition to all of this Michael was kind enough to provide us with a basket of food and wine along with milk in the refrigerator when we go there. This was greatly appreciated as we arrived late at night and starving. Again thank you Michael and if we are ever in need of a place to stay in that region we will get in touch

Liked best: the house itself and what it had to offer
Liked least: the town was old and we did have problems locating our destination due to the darkness and poor lighting however the people in the village came up and gave us the help we needed.I would recommend that there should be a light turned on hwould the

“A home away from home”

Casa Soltau is lovely, it is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. It makes for a very relaxing holiday, you can lounge on the roof terrace and just gaze across at the panoramic mountain views or you can sit inside and watch a DVD from the large selection. The town centre of Sulmona is just 10 mins drive away and this is a lovely historic town with some really nice restaurants serving local cuisine. There are recommendations in the welcome pack. Also there is a nice swimming pool available to use, it's a simple 10 min drive away. The weather was great, blue skies and sunshine the whole week. We had a lovely and relaxing holiday where we ate, drank and were merry.

“Excellent accomodation in quiet and beautiful valley close to Sulmona”
Reviewed August 31, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Casa Soltau provides excellent accomodation in the beautful Abruzzo region of Italy. The house is comprehensively equipped with everything needed for a family holiday. Fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, American fridge freezer etc, plasma TV in each bedroom, playstation etc etc.

Nearby Sulmona is a very pretty town with plenty of shops, coffee bars etc.

Would thoroughly recommend Casa Soltau for families needing a clean, spacious base from which to explore this part of Italy.

“The greatist vacation ever!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We rented this villa because it was only a short distance to Lama dei Peligna a small town our grandparents came from. We had read where George Clooney had stayed in Sulmona while filming a movie and the town seemed the perfect size to be able to relax and enjoy. It was great, Paulo was so kind to us and helped us getting around the abruzzi area. It was beautiful and each small town was better than the one before it. Paulo also told us of great places to eat and the food was great. We feel we made a friend for life with her, and our vacation is one we will never forget, when we come back to Italy we will be staying at your Villa It was as comfortable as being at home and we hated to leave. We went on a two week tour when we left Sulmona but our favorite part of our trip was staying at your villa. Thank you so much, Pat & Ron (2 of 11 that stayed at your Villa)
