Totally lived up to or surpassed the website. We rented the Il Soppalco apartment for ten days which was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, great modern shower room, lovely views, with pleasant outside seating. The décor is very appealing with lovely art posters. Two minutes walk to the Palazzo restaurant and pizzeria - great home made pasta, very friendly and not expensive, good wine - and lots more good places to eat in the beautiful hilltop village of San Stefano di Sessanio which is just a few minutes walk. Rita Visioni is an inspired host who takes so much trouble to look after guests - she collected my husband's credit card which he'd left 20 miles away in the car hire at L'Aquila! - and arranged a great cooking class for us in the apartment with Aurore who lives nearby and taught us gnocchi, pasta making, soup and tomato sauce - then we got to eat the results. Rita was also able to recommend restaurants and places to visit. She kept the apartment topped up with supplies of ground coffee, local bread, olive oil and all those basics you don't want to spend your holiday shopping for. We plan to return next year as the village is friendly and much better served with amenities than many other local villages and there are terrific local walks. I really recommend Stuart Haines Walking in the Abruzzo guide (published by Cicerone, England) and the walk up to the Rifugio at Rocca Calascio gives terrific views. I suffer from vertigo so was proud to manage it - encouraged on by the thought of good food and wine at the Rifugio! There are plenty of other places to visit by car too, including Navelli to buy excellent locally grown saffron, or the market On Weds and Sat mornings at Sulmona. We travelled to L'Aquila by bus from Rome (very good value) and picked up a hire car there which was much easier than driving from Rome.
