We spent our Easter Holidays in casa mimosa, 3 families and 2 "grand-ma's" together in this beautiful, perfectly restored house that had plenty of room for all of us. A big cosy kitchen with dining table for everybody and lovely surroundings with both a terrace and a garden to play in.

What a find.

  • 5 of 5

I brought a group of yoga students with me for a weeks retreat at Casa Mimosa. It couldn't have been better. The location was stunning, really uplifting. The house and accommodation was superb, the catering done by our hosts Jane and Sophie was excellent.

A very special place!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mimosa is the most amazing house. We stayed for a long weekend and held a family birthday party. There was plenty of room for everyone - 5 lovely bedrooms all en-suite.

Downstairs there is the most beautiful kitchen area which has a lounge area and wood burning stove. Off the main hall there are lovely relaxing areas to read 1 with a wood burning stove. There is toilet & shower room and also washing machine/laundry area.

Outside there is a covered verandah area with large dining table and chairs overlong stunning mountain views and beautiful pool. There are plenty of sun loungers and a BBQ area.

The house and grounds are immaculate.

The views are amazing as the light changes all the time. Casa Mimosa is the ideal place for a lovely relaxing holiday and for parties as well.

Holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic Villa. We have traveled all over europe and have never found such a stunning house with so much to offer. The house is so well equiped and lacked nothing. The kids loved the Wii and the teenagers loved renting mopeds and dashing off to the village for billiards and a drink. We walked in the mountains and fell in love with this totally un discovered area. We are going back to buy some land and create our own piece of paradise. Thank you Jane.

Everything I hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 very happy weeks at Casa Mimosa. Everything they said would be there, was. We had lots of friends and relations who came over to visit us and we never felt cramped at all. The pool is fantastic, the rooms are spacious and very comfortable beds. The kitchen is magnificent and the outside living space is perfect for all ages. Table tennis, Wii, televisions, sky, DVD, fitness equipment everything was of the highest standard. I couldn't have wished for more. We have booked again for this year. Thank you.

Casa Mimosa is only 35 mins drive from Pescara airport , Ancona 1.5 hrs & Rome 2 hrs.

The famous national parks of Abruzzo, renowned for hiking, bird watching, bear tracking, wolf watching, caves and skiing are all within easy reach as are the miles of clean, sandy beaches along the Adriatic coast. The closest beaches are Pineto and Silvi Marina, north of Pescara and the bustling Francavilla to the south. The Vasto area also south of Pescara is worth a visit for its varied coastline and to see the fishing huts on stilts.

Casa Mimosa's nearest town is Castiglione Messer Raimondo with a supermarket, bars, restaurants, a market and a medieval church. The award winning winery, San Lorenzo, between Piane and Madonna degli Angeli, is not to be missed!

The beautiful historic hill top towns of Penne and Atri are both a short drive away.
