It is great sun trap, the perfect spot to relax , with a table, chairs, umbrella, sun loungers and sun beds.

Further details outdoors:

The large roof terrace measures 5.5m x 3m and commands excellent views, the perfect spot for eating al fresco, or just relaxing and soaking up the sun. A complete 'suntrap', as several guest have described it. A table, chairs, umbrella and sun loungers are provided.

Being totally detached, Casa Rosa has its own private garden. There is a secluded shady courtyard complete with table and chairs directly off the kitchen, with herbs ready to use for cooking, from here 4 steps take you to the cottage garden, which is south facing and one part is gravelled with Maiella stone, complete with a table, two benches and umbrella, and the other part is up four more steps and has 2 comfy chairs which are surrounded by fig trees and newly planted nut, olive trees, oleanders, lavender and rosemary bushes and has a fantastic view down the valley to the Gran Sasso in the distance, so you have a choice of sun or shade.

Free parking is available very close by and it is only a 20 metre level walk away from the house making access very easy.

The villa is in a pedestrianised area, so no traffic outside your front door. There are also other approaches to Casa Rosa via the many sloping 'donkey step' paths leading down from the centre of the village.See www.abruzzo.org.uk for more and contact details.

About Joanna Mundy

We live in Ludlow, Shropshire with our thirteen year old daughter and visit our house at least four times a year and still haven't discovered all that this beautiful part of Abruzzo has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you in anyway that we can. Best wishes Jo and Dave Mundy

Joanna Mundy purchased this villa in 2007

Why Joanna Mundy chose Bugnara

We were lucky enough to buy the villa Casa Rosa eight years ago, it hadn't been lived in for forty years, so we spent 2 years restoring it to its former glory. We have been renting it out about 6 years ago and in that short time we have had so much fun and had some lovely guests, some of whom have become firm friends.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Rosa is completely unique it is a completely detached villa, complete with a garden, terraces and roof terrace, which has a 360 degree view of the village and surrounding countryside, but also in the middle of a medieval village. So you can pop the village shops and bars whenever you want. We just fell in love with it and hope you do too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Rosa, has been a comfortable and relaxing place to stay - and our first taste of Italy. We have both felt really at home and have found plenty of walks. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home.

A beautiful place and fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5
We had a really lovely 3 nights at Casa Rosa. The place is beautiful and the hosts are fantastic; going above and beyond what we had expected.

During the booking process Jo responded to all of our questions quickly and thoughtfully. Once we had booked, the procedure for accessing the house was clearly explained by email and in a pack sent by post. In this pack was lots of helpful information about the house, the village, and the (website hidden)'s directions (with photos to help us at potentially tricky junctions!) were really helpful. We were also able to park, as described, in the village car park 20 metres from the house.

On arrival the fridge and cupboards were full with essentials that guests replenish if and when they are used; this saved us from empty stomachs and a lot of potential stress!

The house was perfect with every need catered for. In particular, the roof terrace and 3 different places to sit in the private garden were fantastic. Also, it was nice to have a DVD player for those nights when we didn't walk to the centre of the village for drinks and food (even though it was only 5 mins away!).

Finally, the house was filled with guide books and suggestions of things to do, which meant we had a great time exploring nearby ruins, towns and mountains!

Thank you, Jo, for a fantastic holiday. We'd love to come again!

Beautiful villa in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5
We returned from Italy last night having had a lovely holiday. We really enjoyed staying in your cottage, so well appointed we couldn't have wished for more. The villagers were so friendly and we made a few trips to Ginos Bar and to the little supermarket. The surrounding countryside was magnificent and we found the villages so interesting. We shall have very fond memories of Abruzzo. It has been a joy getting to know you and your cottage and, hopefully, we shall return sometime to do some more exploring. By the way your directions were fantastic. We really appreciated all the time and trouble you had taken to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. Best wishes to you all for the furture.

What a terrific house

  • 5 of 5
What a terrific house- everything here that we needed. Despite a mass of plans . . . we read our books, drank lovely wine and cooked with lovely local fresh ingredients. We are so sure we missed a lot, though managed a few spectacular trips. Sadly, the roof terrace baited us back! Dave, Jo and Fay, the work you have done here is terrific and gardens are coming along beautifully.

Lovely holiday at Casa Rosa

  • 5 of 5
We all had a lovely holiday in Bugnara and Casa Rosa was great. Jo and Dave have taken great care to fill their beautiful holiday home with everything you could wish for on your holiday. It was especially nice to have lots of different areas to sit out, either in the sun or shade, great with the kids sunbathing on the roof terrace and me hiding in the garden! Lots to see and do in the area, we will be back to explore more! Thank you so much Jo and Dave for making our holiday so enjoyable, we will be back soon!

Great stay at Casa Rosa

  • 5 of 5
We've had a great stay at Casa Rosa, the house suited us perfectly and it felt like a home from home. The roof terrace is super - wine and stars to round off the day - just perfect. Thank you so much Jo & Dave for the loan of your lovely home and for all your help and information.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful holiday in abruzzo, made even better because of having the cottage as our home base. The cottage was very much home from home. Beautifully equipped with everything required and very comfortable. Perfect location. Set down a quiet pedestrianised path with no traffic or traffic noise but just 2 minutes walk from the village, with a few shops and bars. Jo and Dave were extremely helpful from the moment we made our enquiry and their directions and attention to detail were faultless, nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly recommend Casa Rosa and we will be back!
