“Grazie Mille Villa Ulignano”

We booked Villa Ulignano on a recommendation from a friend who had stayed here previously and our expectations were high as a result; we were not disappointed.
The accommodation is as described and was easily located thanks to the detailed directions we received from the owners, Dougie and Michelle.
The property is in a very rural location (which is definitely our preference) requiring a rental car however the nearest town, Sulmona is only a couple of miles away where there are several supermarkets and plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars et cetera.
Dougie and Michelle (and their two boys) were perfect hosts, always on hand to offer advice regarding places to see and things to do. They have integrated into the local community which meant that we got to experience what the area is really like via their connections.
We would recommend a visit to Scanno and the nearby Lago di Scanno; we took a picnic and enjoyed a few hours just relaxing by the lakeside (we parked in a cark park at the southern end of the lake which was free).
We also went to Caraminico Terme via Cansano and Campo di Giove which is a pleasant drive. In Caraminico you can get free access to a nature reserve via an office in town and follow various trails from 1 hour duration upwards.
Other places that we visited and would recommend were Pacentro, and the village of Bugnara which close to Villa Ulignano. A restaurant beside a fishing lake on the way into the village is worth checking out.
We went to Al Quadrivio restaurant in Sulmona and would recommend it.
This is a great area if you like walking in the mountains, cycling and is also close to ski resort (25 minutes). Again Dougie/Michelle were on hand to advise and both accompanied us on walks around the area and in the mountains.
Overall we had a lovely holiday at Villa Ulignano and would not hesitate to go back or recommend it to our friends.

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. Dougie and Michelle were excellent hosts - very helpful, informative and non intrustive. Very knowledgable and obliging.
Apartment was spacious, modern, really comfortable and complete with all faciliites (including outdoor bbq!).
Beautiful surrounding area - mountains, lakes, parks etc. Great place to escape and enjoy down time, clean nature and relaxation.

Both Dougie and Michelle enhanced our stay by being excellent hosts. Their apartment was all we expected and more in terms of decor, locality and comfort. The area around their location offers a lot to do and is in a beautiful setting especially with the views of the mountains in the morning and setting sun in the evening. There was nothing that we lacked and their unobtrusive help and support guided us to get the best from all that was available. We could not thank them enough for a memorable and wonderful holiday.
