Abruzzo Borgo History
In 2006, the land for the Abruzzo Borgo, including the key features of an original farmhouse and natural lake, was acquired by the entrepreneur, Nikki Di Girolamo. It was her vision to build a unique eco-touristic village on the slopes running down from the hilltop, on which the farmhouse is situated.
In the following 10 years, efforts have been devoted to seeing her vision come to fruition, specifically the developing the plans and convincing the city council of the viability of the village and the economic value it will add to the community. Permission was granted in recent years and since then, the project has been underway.
The first milestone was converting the original farmhouse at the top of the hill into 6 apartments and 24 newly created ones, most apartments are now complete, with 90% sold and in use by the growing Abruzzo Borgo community. The community now also boasts of one of the most beautiful infinity swimming pools in Abruzzo, with panoramic views overlooking the town of Alanno and a view stretching 100 km down the valley.
The Borgo is divided into residential Zones, each designed to cater to the different lifestyles of our guests. Zone A, located at the crest of the hill and consisting of the converted farmhouse, and Zone B, consisting of additional apartment units and a marvellous swimming pool, is ideal for rest and relaxation. Zone D, located below Zone B at the bottom of the South-eastern slope next to the Piazza Borgo, is perfect for families and those who enjoy more active holidays. Zone C, situated on the Western hillside, is further away from the activity of the Piazza Borgo and nestled above the nature reserve and lake, clients can design their own individual castle homes, these also offer more privacy and exclusivity.
