Fantastic Time



Just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to discover the Alto Sangro ski area and stay in your house. We had a fantastic time, the skiing was relaxing and the resort had a warm, friendly feel to it. The house was a bit special; one of my lasting memories will be arriving at the village at 5.00am on the Saturday morning trying to find it and opening the door to see the palace you have created inside. Sitting on the sun terrace the following morning taking in the midday rays and snow capped mountains in the distance with a cup of tea before climbing into the salopettes and heading up the road to the piste. The restaurant was superb; we were first in and last out!

Thank you for the champagne, wine and beer hospitality pack, we enjoyed this back on the balcony after our first day on the piste!

I would like to say what a beautiful house you have.

It certainly has the wow factor from the fist step we took through the door. Beautifully restored, furnished and decorated. awe knew when we booked that the house had all the mod cons and boy the house sure does. We were warm and cosy had plenty of space, extremely well equipped rooms, all modern facilities and enough bathroom space even for my girls.


We loved Sulmona, besides being a beautiful historic town, has great shops, great restaurants and a great atmosphere. We took you up on your restaurant recommends and not only loved the food and service but also loved the price. We took a couple of days out for some local skiing. This also surprised me as someone who is used to going to the more high profile resorts in Europe I found the mountain fun and at times challenging and the facilities as good as anywhere else.


All in all we had a wonderful stay made all the better by your beautiful holiday home with all the care and attention to detail you have put into it. We will be back.

This was my first time to Italy and I have to say I enjoyed my time there and would come and visit Casa Soltau again.  The area and house was breath taking, very clean and comfortable. It was very easy to get to and looking forward to visiting again.


"A real find".

Fantastic location, amazing views, quiet and peaceful. Casa Soltau was very well-equipped and spotless. Liked the bottles of wine 'on the house' and tea, coffee, sugar, etc provided as standard, together with linen, towels and countless dvds. The terrace was great for catching the sunrays all during the day.  The owner Michael provided us with excellent directions from the Airport and was very helpful suggesting places to eat (I can highly recommend the family run Cantina Di Biffi), sightseeing etc. The surrounding area is unspoilt and not touristy, where we found some great walks. People are very friendly and helpful; they even tolerated our very basic Italian stumblings. Basically we just had a super relaxing week in this perfect location and would happily recommend it to anyone.


Since our summer visit I have just returned from a 4 day break for skiing with the girls.  It was just as brilliant.  20 minutes away from the slopes which were covered in snow and a fantastic place to ski away from the maddening crowds but with plenty to see and do. The Sweet Time Café in Sulmona is an absolute must for ‘cioccolato bianco caldo’.


I cannot recommend Casa Soltau high enough; it will suit any type of holiday from summer sun to winter ski with your family or just with your friends.  Go and try it, you won’t regret it.

"The perfect place"

"I can't think of a more perfect place to spend a holiday. Not only are the rooms comfortable and clean, but there are so many things to do outdoors. Thank you!"

 better than expected

The property was beyond our expectations. The town itself is very old but dont let that fool you. The people we met were very friendly and always willing to help if we needed it. In fact one night they brought us fresh produce from their garden. Michael thought of everything when he remodeled the house. We were three couples and if we ever needed some time alone the house provided us with the privacy we needed. There are two sitting areas with a tv and couch and all of the bedrooms had their own TV 2 full baths which is a Godsent when you have 3 women trying to get ready in the morning. In addition to all of this Michael was kind enough to provide us with a basket of food and wine along with milk in the refrigerator when we go there. This was greatly appreciated as we arrived late at night and starving. Again thank you Michael and if we are ever in need of a place to stay in that region we will get in touch.

 A home away from home

Casa Soltau is lovely, it is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. It makes for a very relaxing holiday, you can lounge on the roof terrace and just gaze across at the panoramic mountain views or you can sit inside and watch a DVD from the large selection. The town centre of Sulmona is just 10 mins drive away and this is a lovely historic town with some really nice restaurants serving local cuisine. There are recommendations in the welcome pack. Also there is a nice swimming pool available to use, it's a simple 10 min drive away. The weather was great, blue skies and sunshine the whole week. We had a lovely and relaxing holiday where we ate, drank and were merry.

When we arrived at Casa Soltau and opened the front door we immediately knew that we would have a great stay in both the house and Sulmona. The house provided everything as per the description on the web page, not to mention that the house was spotless. We could relax there as if we were in our own home and will most definitely return and we have already made enquires for our next trip. We looked forward to returning to the house after our various day trips. The location is magnificent and I would recommend having a car so that you can visit the nearby towns. We thanked MIchael for providing such a beautiful place to stay and Paola, his housekeeper was also very obliging.

"The greatist vacation ever!!!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 26 July 2011  5 Stars

We rented this villa because it was only a short distance to Lama dei Peligna a small town our grandparents came from. We had read where George Clooney had stayed in Sulmona while filming a movie and the town seemed the perfect size to be able to relax and enjoy. It was great, Paulo was so kind to us and helped us getting around the abruzzi area. It was beautiful and each small town was better than the one before it. Paulo also told us of great places to eat and the food was great. We feel we made a friend for life with her, and our vacation is one we will never forget, when we come back to Italy we will be staying at your Villa It was as comfortable as being at home and we hated to leave. We went on a two week tour when we left Sulmona but our favorite part of our trip was staying at your villa. Thank you so much, Pat & Ron (2 of 11 that stayed at your Villa)

Excellent accomodation in quiet and beautiful valley close to Sulmona

Casa Soltau provides excellent accomodation in the beautful Abruzzo region of Italy. The house is comprehensively equipped with everything needed for a family holiday. Fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, American fridge freezer etc, plasma TV in each bedroom, playstation etc etc.

Nearby Sulmona is a very pretty town with plenty of shops, coffee bars etc.

Would thoroughly recommend Casa Soltau for families needing a clean, spacious base from which to explore this part of Italy.
