Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: 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.

Why Abbateggio PE, Italy:
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.
