Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Winner 2017 Please visit TA site to read all our fantastic reviews and to see why our guests regularly return!
This quaint old Medieval house is located in a residential piazza (square) in the pedestrian part of the historical center of Vasto, Abruzzo, Italy. It is the perfect location only a minutes walk from the many bars, restaurants and boutiques and from the main piazza in the pedestrian marble and cobbled streets. You can also walk down to the beach in 15 minutes or 5 minutes by car. It is an ideal location to come and experience REAL Italian life! Read MORE below... (Be aware that most of the apartments for rent in Vasto are on the modern outskirts of town, NOT in the historical center, or they are on the modern Vasto marina beach area where all the noisy nightclubs and discos are located.)

I am James and I live here in Vasto on the Adriatic coast of Italy with my wife Judy. We bought a holiday home here in 2006 and liked it so much that within 2 years we had moved here permanently. We love the town, it's history, being in the center so close to the shops, bars and restaurants is so convenient, but we can walk to the beach in only 15 minutes! We now rent out the apartment that we originally bought and restored for ourselves to guests. We have also since gone on to buy a beautiful little house in the pedestrian only part of the historical center which we use for family, friends and guests. Both the house and our award winning Medieval apartment here in Vasto are only a few minutes walk away from each other. If you need accommodation on one level or a romantic setting then the apartment is for you, or if you need to accommodate more people or children then the house if perfect. We live close by both properties so are always on hand to give help and advice when needed. If you love history, art, eating out in fabulous but reasonable restaurants, shopping in the designer boutiques, people watching in the pavement cafes and lazy days on the beach, then everything you need is right here in Vasto. There is no need for a car as it is all right on the doorstep. We look forward to welcoming you to Vasto!
