Excellent stay in Vasto. James and Judy went out of their way to make us feel welcome including accommodating our delayed arrival. The apartment was clean and well presented in a lovely part of the old town. An excellent location and would choose to locate ourselves there again. …

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this fantastic review for us! We are so glad that you fell in love with Vasto and our Medieval apartment. I am so happy that you got to have the unique meal on the Trabocco (wooden fishing pier) over the water on such a lovely sunny day, it really is magical, and we recommend it to everyone. Yes, the town is very quiet in the afternoons between 12.30 and 16.00 as it is lunchtime followed by a snooze. But we are all up and ready for aperativo in the piazza afterwards...followed by more delicious food and then maybe a concert or a spot of shopping! We would love for you to return one day...you still have to visit the Tremiti Islands, and go to the vineyard! Thank you again for this amazing review, it is very much appreciated. Ciao, Judy and James

Thanks for this great review Greg. We are looking forward to your visit next year when you will have time to go to the Tremiti Islands and to our friends vineyard for the day. There is so much that you didn't have time to do and see! How about a special birthday meal on the terrace of the Castle overlooking the gulf? Or maybe you will get to go to the Trobocco! You will need at least a week next time...see you then! Ciao, James and Judy

We had a great stay in Vasto. The town is amazing and the people are so kind and friendly. The apartment is in a fantastic location close to restaurants and main sights, however the space is very dark and cave like. Dampness is an issue and there isn't really anywhere to dry your…

Our Medieval apartment is perfectly located directly in the center of the historical part of Vasto and is the ideal location for all restaurants, bars, cafes, museums and everything the town has to offer. And like ALL properties in this historical part of town, it is located in a Medieval townhouse and is very old, full of character and has vaulted ceilings with fully opening windows to the front. Houses here were designed this way to keep out the sun and keep the space cool in the hot summer months. (This is why the streets are so narrow too - to create shade and keep out the roasting sun) The apartment is approximately 10 degrees cooler than the outside temperature as a result. There is no 'dampness' in the apartment BUT Italy is very hot and humid in the summer months, and hanging wet towels or clothes around the apartment only adds to the humidity, so is not advisable. We do supply a dehumidifier which should be left on most of the time as advised. If you wish to dry clothes or towels, there is a heated towel rail in the bathroom by the bathroom window. There is also a clothes rack supplied which can be placed on the porch area (not in the street!) to dry off clothes and towels. With regards to lighting, as you can see in the photos there are 2 large chandeliers and several lamps around the apartment, but we have now put in higher wattage light bulbs on your recommendation as you found it dark. We provide 4GB of wifi for every booking, but as all 4 of you were using smart phones, you managed to use this up in 2 days, that is why it was going slow after that. We did explain this to you on arrival and were happy to top it up for you on request if you had asked. The wifi reception can sometimes be a little patchy, but this is due to the vaulted 4 foot thick ceilings and walls of the Medieval building, so the wifi works best at the front of the apartment in the lounge area where we had placed it. Wifi is also available for free in the main Piazza, most of the bars and restaurants, and also on the beach! I have 2 contact numbers that I provide for guests in advance on the information PDF and by email. One is my UK cell number and the other is my Italian home number, so you could have tried that one if you found communication was a problem on the cell. Delayed messaging has nothing to do with it being a UK cell, it is an intermittent issue with the Italian Wind mobile cellphone network (over which I have no control!) We also recommend the apartment for couples as only a curtain separates the lounge from the bedroom area, and this is stated in the advert. Families are welcome and of course this represents remarkably good value at only €20 per person.
