REVIEW BY: B. J. Sampson - July 2009
The town in which the house is located, Valle San Giovanni, has less than 500 people and is a bit isolated. It is too bad that there is no place to eat in the town. This might not be a good place to stay for someone who did not have a car or who was making their first trip to Italy and did not know their way around a bit.
We had a rental car and were able to go to Teramo in about 10 minutes. One nice thing is that the beach was less than an hour away and you could get into the mountains in 10 minutes. A very good agriturismo is located about 2 miles away in the next town over. Our wives enjoyed Castelli, a town about 30 minutes from Valle San Giovanni, which is known for the manufacture of ceramics.
