The roads up to the farmhouse can be quite twisty and tourney, so if you suffer from travel sickness or have small children it may be a good idea to bring some travel pills.

There is a small lake not far from the farmhouse: ..... A lovelly family from Denmark explored the area and left me these comments....'there is a small lake if you continue on the small road coming from St Giorgio, (I believe second road to the right if you skip the driveway to La Casa Rosa. and continue about 800 m). I went there with Ella, talked to the nice farmers whom the lake belongs to, and were allowed to do some fishing. Caught a small carp, but there is bigger ones too, and certainly other species as well. Hooked one big thing, but didn't land it - fishermens tales, you know!'

Excellent vacationrental

  • 5 of 5
This years vacation rental that went to Abruzzo at La Casa Rosa turned out to be excellent.
The house is roomy and really comfortable, with nice furnishing in generally big rooms. Kitchen and bathrooms lacked nothing.
La Casa Rosa is situated beatyfully, with an astounding panorama of the hills and mountains in the area. The nearest neighbours are not far from the house, but far enough so you are not bothered. On top of this they are wonderfull people. I talked with the old man for about ½ an hour, even though he only speaks Italian, and I dont!
The pool is well kept and nicely laid out, big enough for some swimming, but not huge. Also dont miss the great sandbeaches nearby.
Finally the owner is extremely nice, well organized, communicates swiftly and do everything possible, so you will have an enjoyable stay. Thanks Adam.

Stunning views, nice house

  • 5 of 5
The house is clean, convienient and situated in the fantastic area - driving around everyday was such a pleasure and the views from the house were splendid. It was quite complicated to find our way there - and thanks to Adam for the detailed descriptions he mailed us. The Italian family neighbours were very friendly and helpful - inspite the fact that we could not speak Italian and they nad no English. And it was lovely to see a bit of farm life for our children - sheeps and rabbits and a horse in the neighborhood.

Rediscovering A lost Italy...

  • 5 of 5
From the simple, rustic beauty of the house itself to the breathtaking view of the Gran Sasso mountain (and the Majella) in the distance, the Casa Rosa was precisely what the Dr. ordered for us and our friends. Sergio and Annamaria, the folks who run the farm adjacent to the property couldn't have been nicer, more welcoming people (and the pecorino cheese they make rivals the best we've had anywhere). And this theme of welcome and generosity played out everywhere we went, from Franca's amazing cooking at the agriturismo 5 minutes from the house, to wonderful people at trattorie and ristoranti in Loreto Aprutino and Penne, to the villagers we met and talked with in nearby Castiglione Messer Raimondo and Castilenti. The people of Abruzzo are not jaded by mass tourism and seem to take their responsibilities as hosts as a matter of honor. It was humbling. And we were very sorry to leave.

The local topography was stunningly beautiful- rolling hills like something from a renaissance painting, and the house well situated: 30 minutes from Penne's charming historic center; 40 from Loreto; less than an hour to the beach. It took only a beautful 40 minute drive from the house to arrive on the Campo Imperatore, the high mountain plain above the Gran Sasso. We passed pasturing cattle, sheep protected by their white sheepdogs and herds of wild horses before descending on the medieval towns of Santo Stefano and Castel del Monte. The diversity of the landscape might be unrivalled in Italy.

The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. It has been very tastefully restored. We shopped in Penne and had the local pasta maker in Castiglione craft some ravioli and Maccheroni alla chitarra for us and grilled lamb and sausage poolside, watching the rocky face of the Gran Sasso change colors in the fading light. It was magical.

Our fellow travelers were veterans of many Tuscan stays. They kept repeating how much friendlier and open the local Abruzzese people were. And their young daughter, who loved the pool, kept a log of every animal she saw. We will be back.

La Casa Rose in April

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful location, beautifully restored house, very well equipped and comfortable, inside and out! Would definitely recommend this property and will definitely be back!
One tip - if going for dinner at the local agroturismo, don't be tempted to order the antipasto as well as the primo and secondi - far too much food (although we did take a doggy bag back to the house, which fed us for another night!)....

In the hills of Abruzzo!

  • 5 of 5
La Casa Rosa is a beautiful and wonderfully laid out home. Every bedroom was roomy and comfortable. Before our scheduled date of arrival Adam was extremely helpful in answering all our questions regarding the area and La Casa Rosa. The Casa was fully equipped with everything you would need to make it a pleasant and comfortable stay....and it most certainly was. It was the best villa that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in several. The views of Gran Sasso, the hills and valley were beautiful, especially sitting out on the terrace sipping delicious Italian wine...most relaxing. The restaurants that Adam recommended were quite good and we did enjoy our meal & visit with Franca at the Agriturismo (she speaks fluent German) about 2 km. from LCR. We loved visiting Loreto, Citti San Angelo, Montefino, Penne, & Castelli (right by Gran Sasso - The village is renowned for ceramics).

Notes:
Please check out the website for further information and pictures. farmhousesinitaly.co.uk The swimming pool is oval shaped and approx 8m x 4m and about 1m to 1.6m deep. perfect for cooling down and splashing around with the childeren, but not suitable for the avid swimmer!! The farmhouse sits in its own private landscaped garden. However la Casa Rosa has over 3 acres of land for guests to enjoy. The boundary runs from the back of the house down past the old disused fartmhouse and down the hill until you reach the Olive trees. The farmer on the lane and his family maintain and clean La Casa Rosa. They are more than happy to show children (and adults!) a variety of chickens, ducks, geese, pigs, lambs and other animals thay have. They usually give you free freshly laid organic eggs !
