Holiday home Casa Trastulli in Castel Frentano
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Trastulli in Castel Frentano. The property is a lovely spacious house with two bedrooms on both second and third floors; a cosy lounge, dinning room and well equipped kitchen on the ground floor. Possibly better equipped that most properties we have stayed in France, Spain and Portugal before. We made good use of the kitchen and the BBQ outside in the lovely enclosed garden.
A welcome pack was left for us on arrival, which was much appreciated as it was evening when we arrived. Antonio, the Property Manager was on hand to check we were okay and helped us very quickly to address any issues. We had some problems with our shower overheating and he got that sorted out really quickly. He also helps ups find a really good local winery (which we went back to twice!) and even cut my daughter's hair for us (he is also the local barber)! Highly recommend asking him to cook for you, as his 5 course meal was delicious.
The village is only a 15 minute walk and you can find most things there. We ate the most wonderful ice cream in the local Galateria. Be warned huge portions, but highly recommend. The bakery sold wonderful fruit filled croissants and be sure to try the local Bocconotti Montoriesi pastries.
There is lots to do from visiting the wonderful sandy beaches, to going to the Majella National Park to tasting the excellent Abruzzo cuisine and local wine. The list is endless. We loved the Abruzzo region. We will definitely be coming back again.
Thank you Wendy for your very kind review. I'm so glad that you appreciated Abruzzo, it really is a fantastic unspoilt little corner of Italy. I hope that we can welcome you back soon.
Fantastic house in a fantastic relaxing environment
We were two families with four adults and four children betweeen 6-9 years old. Had a fantastic time at the house, it never felt small, all necessary equipment is there, and it has a very nice standard to it. The knifes in the kitchen would need some sharpening though :)
We enjoyed every moment of the house, the soroundings and the pool of course. Under one hour drive takes you to really nice beaches and mountains. You can do running from the house down in the valleys between all the grape plantations. Stunning views.
Would love to come back again.
Thank you for your kind review Joakim. We would love to welcome you back one day.
A beautiful and well equipped house in Abruzzo
We all (seven persons) had a really nice week in Casa Trastulli in the village Castel Frentano. The house was so nice with its four bedrooms with great views, three bathrooms and the well equipped kitchen and dining-room The garden and the swimminpool were perfekt for us. We spent most of the evenings at the house looking at the sunset and often had our dinner at the terrace or the balcony. All of us liked Castel Frentano. We went to the beaches and the small villages by the sea almost every day (about half an hour to drive). We also made a trip to the mountains (Passo Lanciano) and to the beautiful old towns Guardiagrele and Lanciano.
We had a lot of help of the notes, books and maps left in the house.
Thanks to Tony and family!
THE ESSENCE OF ITALY
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this beautiful, but less familiar corner of Italy. The villa is perfectly clean, spacious, well appointed and cared for by the helpful Antonio who, as a lifelong village resident, is also a mine of local information. It's a converted old house, so has distinctive character but has been completely refurbished with a nice spacious modern kitchen/dining area - ideal for family meals.
The location on the outskirts of Castle Frentano is perfect, just 20 minutes or so to the coast and some lovely beaches, coves, gelateria and fish restaurants and a similar distance to the mountains with extensive opportunities for trekking, mountain biking and so on. But if you prefer to relax and enjoy rural Italian life with great local wines and farm produce you would struggle to find a more authentic place. There is a brilliant Conad supermarket just 10 minutes away in Lanciano with everything from electrical goods to an unexpected sushi bar (!) but we shopped mostly in Castel Frentano itself, experiencing the delights of the grocery store, the baker on the main street (delicious pizza slices for a picnic) and Antonio the butcher's. And don't forget to try the local sweet cake delicacies - Bocconotto, fantastico! We only had a few days to explore, but there is so much to see in the local area - from picture perfect hilltop medieval towns to immaculate war graves, endless beaches and rugged mountains. This is Italy, unmistakable, timeless, beautiful, hospitable.
Thank you Andy, for your kind review. I’m so glad that you really appreciated the glimpse of the authentic Italy that the area gives you.
Do come back - you’d be very welcome!
A wonderful taste of Italian life
Our stay gave us a wonderful taste of Italian life and a chance to truly unwind. The villa was clean, comfortable and authentically furnished with all the home comforts. With only three people we were spoilt for space and so this house would be ideal for larger groups and families too. Outside you have a large terrace with a striking view over to the small village of Castel Frentano, just a short walk away, and the perfect place to enjoy breakfast in the sun or the local vino in the evenings. We spent most of our time outside making use of the large garden, pool and a BBQ. The owners have clearly spent a lot of time in the area and surrounding villages as they passed on a wealth of local knowledge. With their recommendations we found some real gems, particularly the seafood restaurants that are less than 20 minutes away. The local host Antonio met us with a warm welcome and Italian hamper, and was eager to go the extra mile for anything we needed. But the slower pace of Italian life suited us fine. Make sure you try the Bocconotto pastries in the local bakery Bottega, they're famous for a reason! Overall our stay was enjoyable and hassle-free, and we would highly recommend to others visiting the Adriatic coast. We just wished we'd had longer!
Thank you Deborah for your kind review. We’re really glad that you enjoyed Castel Frentano & all that the surrounding area has to offer. You even found the local bocconotto shop. Top marks!!
You’d be welcome back any time.
Tony & Lynne.
Magasins, banques et restaurants locaux à moins d'1 km. Cette partie accidentée du centre de l'Italie est plus réputée pour ses ours que pour son patrimoine artistique. L'ours des Abruzzes évoluant sur les hauteurs de la chaîne de montagnes des Apennins (à seulement 1h30 de Rome) est l'animal totem de la région. Il veut nous rappeler qu'aucune région d'Europe ne dispose plus de zones consacrées aux parcs nationaux. En contrebas du massif enneigé du Gran Sasso en Italie, les ours évoluent au milieu des pistes de ski, des vastes prairies alpines et des forêts vierges où domine le hêtre."
