Viale Fiume, 60 - INTRODACQUA (AQ)
B&B Girasole is a residential dwelling affording an independent entrance and spacious garden, located at Introdacqua. This town, on the list as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, is located in the heart of the Abruzzo Natural Parks, enjoying a splendid panoramic view, facing Monte Morrone, Maiella and Gran Sasso. It is close to Sulmona, an excellent fine arts centre, and only a short drive from inspiring Lake Scanno, the Roccaraso-Rivisondoli skier's paradise (totalling 110 km of suitable runs) and Pescocostanzo.
All this makes Introdacqua a valued tourist attraction and an ideal destination for summer and winter hiking. Upon entering the ancient gate Porta della Terra with the bastions of the old fortress, the visitor is carried back to the past while working his way through the charming, narrow streets of the old district, known as il Castello and to the landing of the thirteenth century tower Torre Medievale.
Worth mentioning are also the mother church Chiesa Madre (1474-1510) with its Romanesque bell tower (1600), the Marchese Trasmondi Palace (1400) and Fontavecchia, the old fountain. The town's sleepy hollow atmosphere is conducive to a pleasant and relaxing stay, enhanced by the many cultural events made of folklore, music, good wine and savoury cooking displayed by the local associations throughout the year.
Built in the 70s, this facility underwent complete renovation in 2008. It affords a spacious garden (300 sq. mt.) an independent access, adjacent parking. It occupies an area of 90 sq. mts. Which comprises living room, three bedrooms, one bathroom and a spacious cooking/dining area overlooking the garden, literally surrounded by wooded hills and luscious pine Forests.
The bus stop to nearby Sulmona is only a short walk from the facility; just as close are the mini market and the bank.
It takes only 5 minutes to the village centre, where a concentration of conveniences includes: city hall, municipal guards quarters, police station, children playground, two churches, barber shop, newspaper stand, post office/bank, pharmacy, two coffee-bars, tobacco shop, grocery store, butcher shop, bakery and an open market on Thursday morning.
