The flat at 29 Gramsci, Sulmona, is elegantly furnished and extremely convenient with a fully equipped kitchen and two very comfortable double bedrooms. It is located in a beautiful Baroque palazzo in the centre of this historic town centre.
Sulmona, though not very well known to British visitors, is a charming and beautiful small town. It is lovely in its own right but also very near to the Abruzzo national parks (with excellent skiing in season) and beaches on the Adriatic coast. It is only an hour and a half drive from Rome.
The British hosts live in another accommodation in the same palazzo and are on hand to sort out any issues and also to offer excellent advice and support for visitors wanting to take advantage of local attractions.
We stayed for four nights with Katy and Steve in their beautiful apartment. It was clean, light and wonderfully furnished. Sulmona and the Abruzzo has so much to offer the inquisitive traveler. We will undoubtedly be back.
Wonderful apartment in a wonderful historic town. Can not overstate hospitality of Katy and how great the apartment is. Really special !!
The views from the rooms are enchanting . They overlook this beautiful historical town. The location is very convenient to many great restaurants and cultural activities. We did not need our car to explore this beautiful town. Very walkable distances to many sites.
Sulmona has always been a special place for me and this stay was no exception. I stayed at Gramsci 29 for almost 2 months from February to April 2017. The apartment is as beautiful as it appears online. It is spacious, clean and elegant. The apartment has many doors that open to a lovely balcony. The light beaming into the apartment, and the fireplace, are truly wonderful and add to the warm and special time at Gramsci 29.
The attention to detail is so refreshing and did not go unnoticed. The linen, the dinnerware, the furniture...all gorgeous. The owners, Katy and Steve, are incredibly helpful. Katy went out of her way to introduce me to places and people in Sulmona. Katy and Steve certainly know how to make their guests feel welcomed!
I highly recommend Gramsci 29 for your stay in Sulmona.

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!
