We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Paccucci! My children (ages 7, 11 and 14) and I spent 7 weeks during the summer of 2012. From day one (securing the property for rental) the owners were very personable and answered all of my questions and offered suggestions. Upon arrival we were greeted by the key holder and again they were so helpful and I knew that if there was any issue I would have their support. As a single mom with three kids I was a bit concerned about safety before our arrival, but never once, while we were there did I feel that way. I felt completely safe.
The property is quite large, we had plenty of space, we really felt like we were in our own home. The setting is beautiful, you really can't go wrong in Italy, but at Casa Puccucci we were out in the countryside and had views of mountains and valleys all around us that always took our breath away. We were able to go out for daily walks and the views were beautiful. The neighbours are all very friendly, in fact I am still in touch with some of them today.
This property is not something that you would stay in if you wanted to easily walk to the piazza, it is out in the country and a car or bicycle is a necessity, but there are many towns not far that you can join their festivities with either a longer walk, short car ride or bike. During the summer there are "Sagras" around all the villages that you can take part in on the weekend. Sulmona is close with many activities to offer. The Abruzzo area (Torre dei Nolfi is in this region) has many outdoor activities that will keep you busy every day. There are mountain treks, climbing Gran Sasso, canoeing, kayaking and whitewater rafting, local area pools, biking excursions and so much more. Pescara (beach town) is within 30 minutes as are the ski areas of Scanno and Rocaraso. This property is within reach of anything you could possibly wish to do in the Abruzzo area.
I highly recommend Casa Paccucci because I know you will not be disappointed!
