  • Sitting on top of the World.

    "We stayed in the apartment for nearly 3 weeks and every day was a pleasure. The views are truly stunning. I never got tired of sitting on the patio looking out over the Adriatic. The place was on of the best equipped we have ever stayed in and we have used Home Away quite a bit. We found a couple of very nice restaurants within a couple hundred yards from our door. Silvi Alta was one of the most charming little towns we have stayed in Italy. The piazza of the town was just below the balcony of our bedroom. We had several guests (Italian friends and family) join us for short stays. The beach and beach action is a short ride down the hill. It was great being in a quiet somewhat out of the way spot. We had so much fun with my wife's stepfather's family, that there was little time for sightseeing on our own. No matter, we were having too much fun with other activities (mostly eating and socializing). If you are looking for an out of the way spot that has the feel and texture of the real Italy, this place is for you."

  • Peaceful Tranquil Relaxing "Get-Away"

    "Gia-Mia is located in an ideal setting for a holiday vacation in the Italian Abruzzo region for not only enjoying "la Dolce Vita" (the sweet life) but also for exploring the beautiful surrounding villages and the town of Sulmona, the City of Art. Upon my arrival, I was taken by surprise of the most breath-taking view of the Appiennes Mountains from the deck of my suite. I exclaimed to Mike, the owner, that the photos I had previously viewed did not capture their true beauty. The grounds are well-maintained with fountains, ponds, roses, figs, walnut trees and vegetable gardens. The Saggitario River runs swiftly at the edge of the property. One could spend hours just on the grounds alone. There are also nearby hiking trails and country roads with horses and Abruzzo cows grazing in the scenery. The suites were clean with a fully equipped kitchen. The shower had great pressure with an abundance of hot water! Mike was very helpful as he is a wealth of information in the history of the region as well as the mode of operation in researching and finding ancestral relatives. I was amazed at how he helped me find relatives so easily. Arnie, an employee at Gia Mia, is also extremely helpful and ready to meet any needs that may arise. He sometimes has an uncanny sense of what you need before you even know you need or want it. He helped me with bus tickets and schedules, train information, best cappacino and gelato cafés, and just on and on. He brought me walnuts, tomatoes (best ever) peppers, fresh figs, grapes and even would share some of his secret Italian recipes with me. He is a very sweet special addition to the Gia Mia experience.. A real Gem. A favorite restaurant of Mike's is Il Caro, located nearby in Pratola and I would highly recommend this also....Excellent food at very reasonable prices. I did not have a vehicle and I managed to visit many villages in the area taking day trips via the bus and train transportation: Pacentro(Madonna the American celebrity's father born here), Scanno, a gorgeous village high in the mountains with a Lake so very beautiful, Celano, and it's Medieval Castle with a fully restored art museum, Collelongo, a really cool town where several of their buildings are artistically painted with scenes of wildlife. Pescara and Loreto Apprutino also are very lovely and a short drive from Campo Di Fano. I would love to come back to Gia Mia and I will recommend to others."
