Casa Bella ,  Introdacqua  Abruzzo


About the property


Introdacqua translates loosely to "where the water comes in" and its location between two waterways already tells you something about this tiny town tucked away in a canyon near Sulmona. The ancient centre is dominated by the profile of a stone fortress wall in which a recently restored square shaped tower was part of the medieval castle. In the highest part of Introdacqua is a wall showing proof of the presence of the italic people.

Within the village the church of SS. Annuziata houses a church bell of roman origin and buildings of the 500&rsquos to 700&rsquos are worthy of exploration. The canyon itself is green and lush home to the flora and fauna of Abruzzi as well as many lovely walking trails. While Introdacqua is a quiet paradise the city of Sulmona is only minutes away and offers many social activities and market adventures.

This lovely two bedroom home was renovated from a complete ruin to its present and most comforstate. There is an umbrella covered patio with seating next to the entry stairway outside. Perfect for morning coffee to read a novel on the swinging lounger or just enjoying the flowers and the sweet bird calls.

The main floor has an open feel from the kitchen to the living area with a cozy fireplace. The kitchen includes all the basics plus a dishwasher and clothes washer cleverly hid behind wood cabinet doors. Up the handcrafted wooden staircase is a large bathroom with shower and two bedrooms. One bedroom has "matrimonio" bed (US Queen size) and the other bedroom has two twin beds.
