My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-month stay on Solta at Pietro and Angela’s apartment. We had the 1 bedroom 1st floor, with a large sea view terrace. The apartment is prettier than the pictures, large. very clean and well appointed with one each of everything needed. It has a very good internet, a great shower and a washer.
We often sat on the terrace with our morning coffee, and had our dinners there in the evening breezes, facing the Adriatic. The property itself is a mini orchard. Olive trees, lemon, apricot, cherry, plum, herbs, flowers, and always in the background a view of the Adriatic.
The neighborhood is quiet, and it’s just a 10 min. walk down the hill to the Rogac harbor and the ferry. Beautiful boats large and small come and go constantly, we watched them from the terrace.
Life is slow and peaceful on Solta, just what we wanted. We explored winding lanes through hedges of wild rosemary, sage and thyme, myriad stacked-stone fences, and by stone houses with breathtaking views from the heights of this rock laden yet lush island. There is a path behind the house to the neighborhood swimming cove. An ideal swimming place – amazing water… clean, clear, and emerald.
Pietro and Angela are gracious and helpful hosts, interesting, generous, multilingual. From providing insights on island activities to making a doctor’s appointment for me when I needed one, they made us feel at home. They invited us to bocce, introduced us everywhere and fed us often – Angela is an exceptional cook.
We can certainly recommend staying at their place.
