Ties to Italy


   You are invited to take your culinary journey of the Abruzzo region one adventurous step further... to our villa in Sulmona, B&B Sei Stelle!

   Our link to Italy, but more specifically to our native region of Abruzzo, is an integral part of our identity.  Quite simply, it is the tapestry of who we are personally and professionally.  This connection to Italy required that we be more than tourists traveling to Italy on occasion, it necessitated that we position ourselves as residents there as well.  The purchase of a historic palazzo secured such a bond.   Living part of the year in Boston and part of the year in Sulmona, Italy affords us the distinct opportunity to share, in an ongoing and unparalleled basis, the rich culinary traditions and customs that we know to be the true Italy. 


   My culinary journey began in Sulmona and now my career has brought me full circle back to Sulmona and those basic lessons of the kitchen.   The property, originally built for one of Sulmona’s wealthiest noble families, has been the site, over the years, for countless lavish social celebrations that brought together the wealthy land owning aristocracy of the region.   Located in the old city, once surrounded by a fortress with only the “porte” remaining, it’s central location has placed it center stage to history. 


   At one time in the late nineteenth century, the property became the site for the famous Hotel Traffico that boasted the finest chefs in all of Abruzzo.   With the near completion of renovations, the property stands ready again to welcome guests to experience the beautiful medieval city of Sulmona and see, and more importantly taste, for themselves what we mean when we say that Abruzzo is the richest gastronomic region in all of Italy.


   Our villa in Sulmona is available for rental exclusively through The Parker Company.  If you are interested in renting the property on a weekly basis, please click here for pricing and availability.
