Gorgeous house with vaulted ceilings, original stonework, terracotta floors, a cosy open fire, large kitchen that opens to the sunny garden and its delightful view, and perfect proximity to national parks, mountains, lakes and excellent restaurants.

The space

It's rare to find such a unique, detached house in the hilltop villages of Abruzzo, especially one with its own sunny garden. You'll be able to really relax here and use the house as a base to see the stunning area. There are two double bedrooms, one twin room, and then the sofa bed in the living room could be used if there are more guests. There are two bathrooms, a large living room with an open fire and then a really good sized kitchen that leads out to the garden.

Guest access

The whole house is available to you.

Interaction with guests

We are available to give you some good advice on what to see in the area, if you want to know, and we're just a phone call away for questions, directions or help with booking somewhere to eat.

We had a wonderful stay in James & Lea's beautiful house. It is situated in a really beautiful part of Italy, away from the tourist areas. James couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming- he met us en route to show us the way to the house, and then provided us with lots of information on what to do/where to eat etc. The house is really comfortable and the kitchen well equipped for those who like to cook. We will definitely be back :)

We had an amazing time at James and Lea's house in Carapelle. The house is a real treasure - old and very nicely furnished with a little garden overlooking a lovely mountain village. It is quiet, surrounded by hills and beautiful nature. James is a perfect host - easygoing, friendly and helpful and a lovely person to talk to about Italy and other places�. We would definitely like to come back here again!

What a wonderful place to stay! The house is superb - can't be really described how much, it must be seen. James is such a perfect host, so nice. He had prepared these tips of what to see, where to go, restaurants.. his recommendations really helped us to explore the area. The village and its surroundings are very calm, perfect for those who want to experience something different than crowded tourist places. Also great for those who like to hike! Everything has just so much overcome our expectations and we recommend this to everyone. Thank you, James!

House is beautiful and James is a great host. His recommendations were spot on and made our trip. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to be off the beaten path but close enough to explore the beautiful surrounding areas.

Such a beautiful house on the edge of a pretty village in in extraordinarily scenic part of Italy. James was friendly and helpful and went out of his way to make our trip easy. Their restaurant and excursion recommendations were faultless too- in fact they were some of the high points of our trip. I hope to return!

The four of us who stayed at James Airbnb were very pleased. Directions to Airbnb's can sometimes be challenging in Italy. Not with James. He met us on a main road and had us follow him for 10 minutes to his place. That was greatly appreciated. He also gave us some beautiful back road directions to our next location that we would have never found. If you are looking for a place away from the big cities to relax, you can not go wrong with James Airbnb.
