Introdacqua, Province of L'Aquila, Abruzzo
Our house has just been fully restored to the highest standards and is situated in the historic medieval village of Introdacqua near the town of Sulmona in the L`Aquila region of Italy.

The house has been reconstructed to traditional standards, with stone stairs , some steep, and ceramic floors as is normal for some property in Italy. Therefore care should be taken with small children and those unsteady on their feet. The roof terrace also has a long drop, small children should not be left unattended in these areas.

Excellent standard of accommodation in perfectly positioned village house. We were there with three teenagers for a ski break so terrace not used - but imagine this would be perfect summer accommodation. Stairs very steep for anyone with mobility problems but otherwise very interesting and comfortable house which will be even better when the wonderful basement room is able to...

Definitely not for the unfit - lots of very steep stairs are excellent for working out the thighs!! when the final damp areas from the restoration have dried out and...
