Bomba is a comune and town in the Province of Chieti in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The first historical quote to the existence of the town is in parchment paper present in the Chieti Archbishop Administration. It dates back to 1115 and refers to taxes to be paid. In 1269 the town was donated by King Charles I of Naples to Ranulfo de Courtenay. In 1500, town inhabitants were about 600. While at the end of the 17th century they were only 300. At the beginning of the 19th century it was home town of Bertrando and Silvio Spaventa who were famous Italian patriots. In the middle of the 20th century a big dam was built over the Sangro River (close to the town) that generated a large artificial lake famous for tourism and for sportive activities. - Wikipedia
Bomba is a lovely village, located just 25 km (18 miles) from the Adriatic sea and the all-important A14 (autostrada Adriatica, running from North to South of Italy). It lies at the heel of the Pallano mountain, famous for ruins of Pre-Roman settlement (Pallano itself is worth a visit, just for sake of views towards Majella mountains and Sangro Valley). Pay a visit to ethnographic museum, 16th century Baron Palace, Church of Santa Maria Del Popolo and the Sanctuary of San Mauro. Call in to the village square in a popular bar (you will need to learn some Italian here, remember "Un Altro" - means another one, after you tried some proper Italian coffee there). Historical center is idyllic with cobble stoned streets, old steps leading to the town walls, pots of geranium on the balconies and old ladies greeting you as you walk by. It is very safe village, where people know each other and often leave their doors unlocked.
Now, if you do not wish to drive the car to get your pint of milk, or loaf of bread, or to pay your fine for parking illegally in the seaside resort of Vasto, you do not need to do that in Bomba. As you walk from our door to the street, turn left and walk along Via Roma and you will find: The present shop, the clothes shop, the greengrocer, pharmacy, flower shop, hairdresser, two corner shops/mini-markets, post office, cash machine, public park, upholstery shop. pizzeria (open in season only). There are a public swimming pool, football pitch and tennis courts all just 5 minutes walk from the center.
Guarantee quick response and lots of info on request. Live away, but have a house manager in the village.
