“The perfect place to relax or explore from”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We based our choice to visit Casa Christiana on the array of excellent reviews, but nothing had prepared us for the warm welcome offered to us by Rita and Gerry. We spent a week with them and would happily have spent a month.

We stayed in the family room with our two young children (4 and 5 years) which was large and comfortable with a mini bar (which proved very useful for storing delicacies we discovered in the local towns). The room was cleaned and tidied each day and the most delicious breakfasts were prepared each morning which we ate on the lovely shady terrace.

We spent many happy hours lazing by and playing in the pool. Our children, previously quite nervous of swimming, had the most wonderful time. The beach at Montesilvano is a short drive away, so we had the best of both worlds.

We had a great evening at the festival of Arrosticini (a local delicacy) in the local village of Piccianello with Rita, Gerry, Rita's mum and another family who were staying at the house.

No review of Casa Christiana would be complete without mentioning Peppe, Rita and Gerry's little dog! We all fell in love with him.

Rita and Gerry are the perfect hosts, always there to help and offer advice, while giving you the impression that their home is your home. We could not recommend Casa Christiana highly enough and can't wait to return next year to continue our exploration of Abruzzo, arguably one of the most beautiful regions of Italy.

“Marvelous hosts. Beautiful view and surroundings. Great pool!”

We arrived at Gerry and Rita's beautiful house on a sweltering August day and immediately took to the great swimming pool to cool down. Our 5 children would have stayed in the pool for the whole stay if only they could.
Rita and Gerry were extremely excellent hosts. They did everything to make us feel at home. The breakfast was served on the patio next to their beautiful garden and orchid (the best plums I have ever tasted straight from the tree!).
The rooms were spacious and spotless clean. We were positively surprised that one of the local Italians came every morning and made our bed and kept things tidy and clean (quite unusual for a 4 night stay in vacation rental). We were given fresh towels too.
It was very hot so Gerry gave us a good fan that cooled the room (however for next time - maybe a ceiling fan or air-conditioning should be installed...)
The little dog Pepe was also a big hit with the kids and very quiet and friendly.
The view is breathtaking and the location is the best. We went to the beach which is a 20 minute drive away and to the peaks and meadows of the Grand Sasso a short hour's drive.
We had an unforgettable experience. Will definitely be coming back soon.
The only downside was that at the end of our stay I had to pay (a small price) for the wifi - didn't know about it before.

Thanks Rita & Gerry!!!

“Perfect chill out holiday”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We were looking for somewhere a little off the beaten track to get away from the hustle and bustle of London. We did not expect the friendly and warm welcome received from Gerry and Rita. Nothing was too much trouble, they were happy to do whatever we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Not only this, they were very sociable and it was a pleasure to spend time with them, whether having a cup of tea, taking us to the local festival or eating lunch together.

The rooms were extremely clean and well appointed, however, the some nights were a little hot without air conditioning, but there was a fan. The swimming pool was lovely ant the surrounding gardens, and scenery was breathtaking.

A special mention to their little dog Pepi, who is real lovable character. As two people are not keen on dogs, little Pepi won us over instantly!!

Overall, a lovely relaxing break, visiting a little known area of Italy and sampling amazing local cuisine. Gerry and Rita recommended various restaurants to us and after taking us there were even happy to translate the Italian menus for us.

Definitely a place to return to!
