“A really nice place, but the location is a bit lonely.”
Reviewed 27 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

It was a fine house, and a really nice owner.Tthe only thing worth mention is that the house is located in a sort of alley, which is very dark in the evening.

Thank you for your kind review. Our house is located in a little alley way not far from the town center. It is a convenient and quiet location. We will check with the community to ensure all street lights are in working order.

“authentic Italy”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Casa Colella is a small, narrow, two-story house in the historic part of the Abruzzo town of Pratola Peligna. We prefer authentic accommodation to faceless modern accommodation and we were not disappointed. The house was clean, all appliances were in top order and we were greeted by a friendly local who showed us around and explained everything in very good English. Our favourite place of the house was the roof terrace. Sitting there during the balmy summer evenings overlooking the terracotta roofs of the town, sipping a glass of local red was just bliss. Pratola Pelingna, very close to the autostrada (freeway) to Rome and the coast and with a train station, is easy to reach. The town is also perfectly situated within the Abruzzo region. The historic town of Sulmona is just a few kilometres away, the Majella National Park with its multitude of walking tracks and hermitages is close by. Pratola Pelingna itself, although not mentioned in all the guide books we consulted, is a beautiful old town by-passed by most travellers. What you get there is a piece of authentic Italy with friendly locals, no crowds, colourful markets and cultural jewels just waiting to be discovered.

The house however, due to very steep stairs, is not suitable for travellers with disabilities.

Wir bedauern es sehr dass der Familie Pit H aus Wiesbaden unser Haus und die Umgebung nicht gefallen hat. Unser Haus ist ueber 100 Jahre alt und wurde 2005 voellig renoviert. Der Ort hat sich seinen Charme erhalten und ist nicht sehr touristisch, aber als Ausgangspunkt zum Wandern ideal. Herr Pit hat des oefteren mit meinem Bruder (Eigentuemer) per email Kontakt gepflegt waehrend des Aufenthaltes um von ihm Tips fuers Wandern und andere Dinge zu bekommen. Unsere Freundin welche am Tage der Ankunft leider nicht anwesend war hat sich die Muehe gemacht um die Familie am naechsten Tag zu besuchen, um zu sehen ob alles in Ordnung war und dies wurde ihr bestaetigt. Nie war die Rede davon dass das Haus nicht sauber sei oder irgendwelche andere Probleme waeren. Mein Bruder hat der Familie vor der Ankunft mitgeteilt dass unsere Nachbarin die Fassade, verputzen musste um einen Wasser Eintritt zu verhindern in der Zeit in der die Familie gebucht hatte. Ihm wurde aber bestaetigt dass dies kein Problem waere, da sie ja den ganzen Tag ausser Haus seien. Wir waren deshalb sehr erstaunt, dass sobald die Familie wieder zu Hause war uns mitteilte, dass das Haus sehr schmutzig gewesen sei, und dass der Garten nicht benutzt werden konnte. Wir haben uns noch einmal versichern lassen dass das Haus definitiv geputzt worden war. Wir haben Herrn Pit 30 Euro zurueck erstattet fuer das sogenannte putzen da wir keine unzufriedenen Gaeste moechten.
