La Casa Rosa dates back to the start of the 1900's. When my wife and I first caught eyes on it at the start of 2005 it was an inhabitable ramshackle of a mess. With original features, its stunning location and the support and love from the locals the whole project became a labor of love. Nearly two years on and la Casa Rosa welcomed its first guests.
The original part of Farmhouse, with its 2 feet thick maiella stoned walls, consists of 2 floors. The whole house was restored to its natural beauty, maintaining its original features such as the vaulted ceilings, high-beamed roof and local tiles. On the first floor you will find the very spacious Living room, Kitchen and stairs leading to the top floor. Here, you will find two very large double sized bedrooms and one bathroom.
Downstairs to the rear of the farmhouse is the rear extension. The old cantina and stables were knocked down and replaced with Three bedrooms (which can sleep up to 9 people), one of which en-suite, a very large family bathroom and large hallway leading back into the old Farmhouse.
LIVING ROOM (approx 47m sq)
This spacious living area looks over the garden area and swimming pool across the valley towards Penne. Fully equipped with all the modern luxuries our guests deserve. Including TV, DVD, CD player and tape audiocassette. Three very large comfortable sofas and furniture from around the World makes this a very relaxing area for friends and family to escape the sizzling hot summer sun or snuggle up in the warm during the winters.
