March – The J family from Wimbledon, London …We thoroughly enjoyed waking up, opening the shutters and taking in that stunning view every morning. Our children loved playing n the beaches in Pescara.

May – The family from Berlin, Germany ….Fantastic farmhouse, with all mod cons and Kitchen equipped with everything we needed.

July – The J family from Manchester, UK .. Where do I begin? The drive across the Apennines from Rome is truly one of the best road journeys we have done (I think a very close 2nd to route 1 in California). The walks in the surrounding area and in the National Parks a short drive away are spectacular and imposing. We have been going on walking holidays for 20 years now and Abruzzo rates as one of the best. La Casa Rosa has everything you need and a perfect base to discover this incredible region.

December - The D family from the USA (working in Munich)..We travelled down from Germany for Christmas and found one of the most stunning pieces of Italy..The weather was amazing..we never expected to be eating Christmas Turkey (provided by the farmers livestock up the lane) outside in our slip vests !! ..amazing place, amazing farmhouse and amazing holiday...Thank you Adam for all your help in making our vacation very memorable.


August - The C family Surrey, UK ...Impressed by the conversion, spacious and ideal for 2 families. Stunning views and a great experience of rural Italy.

June – Mr and Mrs R from Swansea, Wales … The way the house and the garden are presented has been so well thought over.

September – The D family from Colorado,  USA … We found it very hard to leave La Casa Rosa. Everything was so thoughtfully done that it truly was a home away from home. The house (and beds!!) were so comfortable. The views were memorable and the neighbours further up the track were so helpful and engaging. Thanks to Adam and Maria for sharing such a wonderful home.

September– The D family from St Paul / Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA …9 beautiful days with gorgeous views of the Gran Sasso to the side and the Maiella National Park at the front.
