About Elizabeth Faiella

James and Elizabeth Faiella purchased the ruins that became their dream home while visiting Jim's ancestral village on their honeymoon.Residents of Winter Park, Florida, they have visited the home several times a year for 23 years, taking over 185 guests who always gave rave reviews.This year we decided to share our home with travelers for the first time. Our dear friend Rosetta Bonaventura caretakes and can cook better than any Italian woman I Know!! Its heaven to be in this mountain refuge, and the shopping in nearby Sulmona is fab. Elizabeth walks the hour long downhill path to Sulmona on a daily basis, stopping for the sheep of course !

Elizabeth Faiella purchased this house in 1993

Why Elizabeth Faiella chose Introdacqua

Because it provides an authentic, non touristy, pastoral quintessentially Italian experience that heals the soul.. And the wine and olive oil are unsurpassed.

And because our old, old. home housed over 20 generations of Italians before we got to borrow it for a few years... It has a warm spirit that is palpable...

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with the walk from the old walled part where our house is located, down to the new (300 year old) part of the town for a gelato, or an espresso ,,, and the children playing soccer I the piazza that is our front yard, in the shadow of the ancient tower... and the indescribable rosy terracotta color of the sunset on Gran Sasso...... mmmm !
