Our guests safety is of prime importance. 'Casa in Piazza' is located in a residential, pedestrian only part of the historical center of Vasto, Abruzzo, Italy. Only a minutes walk from the many bars, restaurants and boutiques and main piazza. It's location is perfect for those wishing to immerse themselves in the local life and colour and experience 'REAL' Italy. The town is situated just above the Adriatic coast in the unspoilt region of Abruzzo. Vasto is easily accessible from Pescara Abruzzo airport in 50 minutes, or Rome in 3 hours by direct air-con coach. The house is within walking distance 15 mins (down steps) of the beach. Vasto marina beach (25 mins walk, or 5 mins by bus/car) has miles of golden sand where you can hire sun beds and umbrellas, motorboats and pedalos. The beach is very wide, sandy and gently shelving making it perfect for children. Please note the perfect location of my properties in the historical center of town close to restaurants and cafes NOT the outskirts (where most holiday property is located) The house has an open plan ground floor. kitchenette with oven, gas hob and fridge with freezer compartment. cool bag and chillers are also supplied. The shuttered front window by the dining table (seats 4) has views out onto sunny piazza.The lounge area has 2 single sofa-beds ideal for children. We provide a range of holiday reading books, guide books and a large range of DVD's as well as a brochure on the local and surrounding area, with maps and recommendations. Free unlimited Internet. The marble stairs lead up to the large family bathroom with w.c, bidet, basin and vanity unit with mirror, heated towel rail, radiator and bath with shower over. The high ceiling in the bathroom is full of character with wooden beams. and a window into a cobbled street. The bedroom also has a high wood beamed ceiling and features a king size bed with side cabinets, lamps, 2 double wardrobes, small table and 2 chairs and French doors leading to a small Juliette balcony with views over the sunny piazza. Air-conditioning is available in the bedroom for a supplement of €7 a day (usually only needed July and August) Beach towels can be provided with advanced notice, one per person per stay Max of 4 towels. There is free street car parking 2 mins walk from the apartment or you can park in one of the car parks around the town or multi-story car park all within a few minutes walk of the house. A car is NOT necessary here unless you want to explore further afield.Car hire is available in Vasto. The tourists here are mainly from Rome, and it is geared very much to the outdoor Italian lifestyle. The town can become lively in the high summer months, where we like a passagiata and to gather in the piazzi or in one of the many bars or cafes. English is not widely spoken but we do provide a phrase book! Vasto is the perfect location for either a beach holiday, or a city break at any time of the year.Sleeps maximum of 4 people. (please note that this house may not be suitable for the under 5's, please ask before booking) *Unlimited Wifi internet is available in the property* check in is after 15:00 until 20:00 check out before 10:00 (we can be flexible on departure time depending on other bookings) Late arrivals after 20:00 may incur an extra fee and are only accepted only by prior arrangement. We also own a beautiful Medieval Apartment near beach which won a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2019 and Travellers Choice Award 2020. The apartment is only a couple of minutes walk from the house, also located in the historical center of town. It also sleeps maximum of 4 guests. children of all ages are welcome in the apartment. Vasto is a charming medieval town and has plenty to offer for a weekend or for a fortnights holiday. Cultural events are put on throughout the year for visitors, most of which are free to attend. Concerts, opera in the palazzo gardens, rock bands, food and wine tasting, film festival and Siren Fest music festival. Fresh fish and seafood is a Vasto speciality, as is suckling pig (porchetta) Our local wines for fish are Pecorino and Trebbiano and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo for meat.
