Sulmona apartment description

Giamia Villa, built originally in 1885 by my great great grandfather (Cesidio) for one of his sons (Pasquale) who had six sons of his own (Raffaele, Giulio, Costa, Modesto, Damiano (my grandfather) and Armando). I was born in a very small part of this house in 1949. As time passed the house fell in disrepair and was abandoned for thirty years. In 2006, returning to Italy after 39 years and seeing it in the condition that it was in I decided to buy it. I had to pay a percentage of the value to 21 different owners. In the last three years we have completed the renovations and have now a premier tourist rental property.

From the extra large balconies (400 sq. ft.) we have a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, lush green river valley below and well cultivated lands in the vicinity. Sounds of water rushing and birds singing is the norm throughout the day and at night you could see the milky way and all its stars due to the clear atmosphere that is delightful to breathe in.

Thanks for the assistance -The penthouse unit -is 650 sq. ft, ceramic flooring in the kitchen and dining room, parquet flooring in the bedroom, cathedral wood ceiling heavy exposed wood joists, wood trim throughout, extra large shower.

We have other apartments available, please contact us for details.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Immigrated to Canada in the late 1950's with my parents as a nine year old boy, grew up in Toronto where I had my schooling, got married and started my career. Moved out west to Calgary, Alberta in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in 1977. Started a new career in Real Estate Developer and Property managing that is still ongoing. In 1997 returned to Italy after 39 years, memories of my birthplace, its peaceful tranquility, and sense of home led me to invest in my home village (Campo di Fano) with a population of 300 relatives of mine. I invite you to come and share my piece of paradise.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sulmona:
                  I Thank the good Lord for giving me the opportunity to do a feel good project from my heart. Peaceful setting surrounded by Olive groves, vineyards, mountains and rivers, it was the place of my birth and I felt that I had to somehow set my roots here again in a village where we are all related and you are welcomed with open arms.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  I have purchased over 60 Acres of land that we are now clearing and planting a vineyard, assorted fruit trees from peaches to kiwi fruit. Wide varieties of rose bushes and countless of other flowering plants, bushes and shrubs. Most of all socializing with the many relatives that I am surrounded with in our village. Come and be part of this setting with me.
