 Colledimezzo is a pictoresque village overlooking the lake of Bomba in Chieti Province.

The village is easily reachable by the high way SS652 that connects Colledimezzo with the Adriatic coast. It takes only 30 minutes to reach the beach of Fossacesia, located on the charming Costa dei Trabocchi, while the well-known skiing resort of Roccaraso are at just 50 minutes’ drive.

Colledimezzo enjoys a wonderful view of the lake of Bomba, the verdant surrounding hills and the Majella Mountain, considered a symbol of Abruzzo.

The lake of Bomba stands at just 2 km from the village, on the lakeshores there is a tourist resort called Centro Turistico Il Soffio that avails of swimming pool, camping site, sport facilities and boats’rentals.

Colledimezzo literally means “Hill in between”, in fact the village is located on a hill top between two higher mounts. The origin of the village dates back to the tenth-century.

The village is characterised by a labyrinth of picturesque tiny lanes no accessible by cars. There are three churches in the village. The most important is Chiesa di San Giovanni Apostolo Evangelista with its beautiful bell tower and the ancient oil painting on canvas Madonna col bambino, S. Francesco d´Assisi e il committente, painted by Tanzio da Varallo during the XVII century.

The best time of the year to visit Colledimezzo is during springtime. Summers tend to be hot and dry, while winters are mild with occasional snowfall.
