About Deborah Murphy

In 1905 Francesco DeToro, the owner's great grandfather purchased the property. There are two homes on the property, the original homestead and the 2nd, larger one that Francesco built for his children. As a young girl, Helen came to Italy to study opera in Rome. She fell in love with the property,the culture, the land and the people. It inspired her. In 2004 she had the opportunity to purchase the property and renovate it into a beautiful country villa, where she has spent many vacations with family and friends.

Deborah Murphy purchased this villa in 2004

Why Deborah Murphy chose Abbateggio

This property is beautiful and peaceful. For me it defines the beauty of 'simplicity in life'. That the It is in the center of Abbruzzi.

Beautiful setting and nicely furnished to feel as if home.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend since easily accessible to the region, but private when the touring is done and quiet rest is needed.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful romantic old home transformed into a wonderfully comfortable and modern home, whilst still maintaining its rustic charm. One of the best renovated old homes with have come across in Italy after 6 months of travel. Our hosts were very friendly & accomodating.

Spacious, welcoming, perfect

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our visit there. The place was spotlessly clean, beautiful setting and had everything we needed. A wine tour and 5 course meal was set up for us as wellas a cooking class. Everyone was so helpful and friendly that we all vowed to comeback. We were a group of five couples and the place had lotsof places for usto hang out together, or alone if you needed space. We took hikes riight from the door as well as driving to nearby trails. We had been meet by Croce and he was so helpful arranging things for us and translating as needed. It was the perfect place for us. Thank you.
