“Unforgettable escape”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I was looking for a relaxing getaway and it was that and much, much more. Beautiful setting between the mountains, but not far from the coast. Lovely rural area. Particularly enjoyed spending time by the river at the bottom of the garden - even spotted an otter!
Ruth and Stew were the perfect hosts. Their recommendations were spot on. They were extremely helpful and showed me the best places to shop, beaches, and an incredible vineyard (Tilli). The house is spacious, and comfortable. I would highly recommend this area for groups interested in hiking. There are lots of routes and the scenery is stunning. Thanks Stew & Ruth! I hope to return soon.

“Great place to stay to explore a lovely part of Italy”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying at Casa del Fiume, This time I brought the extended family. The Holland's always make the stay "home from home" and having lived in the area for many years, have in-depth knowledge and advice of the better places and shops to visit and see.
There is a lovely river at the bottom of the garden which provided an added area to enjoy a bottle (or two) of the local wines. They help arrange a wine tasting session at the Tilli Azienda, which was a most excellent afternoon and provided not only the opportunity to sample the local vino but also to meet the lovely Tilli's too.
To finish the trip we enjoyed lunch at a trabbochi on the Adriatic before heading to the airport. A meal on the Trabbochi was brilliant and a must do before you end your trip. Thanks to Stewart who arrange it for us.
Casa del Fiume offers an excellent base for exploring the region and is a most comfortable and relaxing oasis. I will be back.

“Beautiful rental house in peaceful, rural Abruzzo”
Reviewed 4 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Casa Del Fiume for a week in July 2015. The house is tastefully decorated and well-equipped. It was easy to cook good meals in the kitchen and there was a BBQ which we didn't use. The garden is huge with lots of trees and hammocks with the lovely clean river flowing at the end.
We loved the area, which we hadn't been to before as it was relatively quiet with few tourists and lots to do from mountains, beaches and pretty old towns and churches to explore.
Ruth and Stew were attentive hosts, staying up late for us on the first night due to a late flight and giving us ideas and maps for day-trips as well as arranging a delicious lunch of local produce in their beautiful garden. We also liked having the 12 house cats roaming around!
