If you love walking there is many places to go but if you prefer to spend lazy time. hire the car and you can enjoy lovely beaches not too far away or beautiful little towns all around. We spent wonderful two weeks with my family in Marta’s and Rafal’s place. I can highly recommend their house!” Anna O.

“Everything was perfect.”

“We spent a weekend with 2 kids. Everything was perfect. Marta and her husband thinks everything for their guests. The house is the best especially for the families who prefer a weekend at a high altitude village with a good swimming pool. Marta also is a very good cook. Our dinner was one of the best dinner with a good view. Everything was delicious and well prepared. I wish to visit as soon as possible.” Veli

“We will come back!”

“Going to Marta’s was the greatest choice of our trip to Italy! She and her husband were very nice and friendly, they invited us over for dinner after our long and tiresome trip and baked fresh croissants for us every morning! They told us a lot about the area without which we couldn’t have explored it as much as we did! The place is incredible too! Besides the two bedrooms, there’s a very nice and modern bathroom, a kitchen and a comfy living room that connects to a terrace witch is great for having a morning coffee or a vine at the evening! The view from the terrace (and from all the rooms) is absolutely jaw dropping! At the evening fireflies appear around the bushes, and you can hear absolutely nothing but nature throughout the whole day! The small towns in the are all gorgeous, and the winding roads connecting them are all very beautiful! The sea is only a 30 minutes drive, and we had a great time on the beach too! Since we didn’t have time to visit lake Bomba and the waterfalls around it, we will definitely come back at the future!” Kristof

Marta & Rafal

We love all things natural and edible, cooking, preserving food and foraging. We fell in love with Abruzzo for its stunning, unspoilt nature and landscapes – we live half an hour’s drive from both the sea and high mountains! There’s the sunshine, unpolluted air, tranquillity, abundance of wild food, amazing organic crops, friendly people. We love meeting people and sharing these undiscovered beauties with them! Our multilingual family consists of us, Marta and Rafal happily together for nearly 20 years, our 3 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats.
