“stay at Gramsci 29”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for almost three weeks, in September/October of this year.
The apartment is spacious, clean, quiet, and extremely well thought out in all regards.
The kitchen is very well equipped-even featuring a stick blender and a decanter! We have stayed in Sulmona in the past, but never before have we been in a position to cook using the amazing local produce as the majority of rental kitchens are not really designed with cooking in mind. How refreshing!
Katy and Steve are helpful, knowledgeable and accessible without being in the least intrusive.
It was my birthday during our stay, and Katy very kindly dropped in a card and some local pastries, which I thought was a lovely touch. In addition,on our day of departure, she drove us to the nearby car park with our luggage which was a complete godsend.
In our view, this is THE place to stay in Sulmona!

“Wonderful Vacation in Sulmona”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

This was our first time in Italy and we wanted to try and get a full Italian experience. After spending our first few days getting the most out of Rome, Sulmona was going to be our time to relax and get the feel of the country and its people. Getting to Sulmona was a spectacular and stress free drive. Katy and Steve gave us good advice in advance about hire cars and driving in Italy, with very clear instructions on how to find the apartment.

From entering the main building with its impressive reception area and staircases, and meeting Katy you know that you are going to enjoy your coming stay. The apartment was fabulous, spacious and finished to a really high standard. Information is at hand for all local attractions and Katy and Steve were extremely knowledgeable about local history and places to see and eat. Having a car was a bonus, Scanno and Pacentro, being two local places we would recommend, but simply having the opportunity to pass the time in Sulmona is fantastic. We will be coming back.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I have just had a wonderful three day stay at Gramsci 29, truly memorable. The apartment is very spacious in a beautiful, historic palazzo in the heart of the centro storico in the fine city of Sulmona. The apartment location is very quiet and peaceful and has everything you need. Shopping, an outstanding twice weekly market and a number of restaurants are just a short walk, the ultimate in convenience.

The apartment comprises two large bedrooms, two well appointed bathrooms, a spacious living room and stylish, modern kitchen and to complete the ambience, a very large entrance hall entered from a impressive staircase. The apartment has been beautifully and sympathetically renovated to a very high standard while maintaining its abundant Italian character. The bedrooms and living room open to a long balcony which overlooks tranquil gardens and historic homes of Sulmona. The views are quintessentially the real Italy, Bellissimo!

This is five star accommodation and very good value for the money. We wish we could have stayed much longer in such comfortable surroundings as the apartment is very suitable for long term stays.

Steve and Katy are incredible hosts. They know Sulmona and Abruzzo exceptionally well and were very willing to share their knowledge to make our Abruzzo experience a genuine Italian affair, often so difficult to realize on the usual tourist routes of Italy. Sulmona and the surrounding Abruzzo region are splendid and have a rich history dating to the pre Roman era so it was a delight to learn about the region and enjoy the glorious mountain park terrain and unspoiled medieval villages. Grazie Katy and Steve.
