Welcome to Casa Rosa, a beautiful two-bedroomed detached 'Villa in the Village', nestled in the middle of Bugnara, near Sulmona, Abruzzo. This unique property, (which is all yours, not an apartment), offers you the best of both worlds, a detached villa with its own terraces, and cottage garden, yet in the middle of a medieval village in the heart of Abruzzo, Italy.

It is the perfect location for walking and trekking holidays (there are numerous walks from the village), cycling, horse riding, sightseeing or just for a relaxing break away. The beaches of the Adriatic are 40 minutes drive away, skiing 25 minutes and the lakes at Scanno are only 20 minutes away. Rome is only 90 minutes drive away and Pompei 2 hours! For winter breaks there are numerous ski resorts, the largest being only just 25 minutes away at Roccaraso. There is a Water Park at Corfinio which is 10 minutes down the road and Sulmona has indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The villa is ideal for families, friends or couples, with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area during your stay.It is the perfect location for walking and trekking holidays or just relaxing.

Casa Rosa is close to the centre of the village of Bugnara, which is in the Club of 'The most beautiful villages of Italy'. Casa Rosa is a 200 year old, well equipped, full gas centrally heated, together with an open fire, light and airy detached villa, which has been fully restored. You enter through our beautiful chestnut doors into the ground floor which includes a fully fitted kitchen area with electric oven/grill, mains gas hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, electric kettle, iron, ironing board, toaster, teapot, cafetiere, cool bag, plug adaptors in fact everything you need in a kitchen. Also a dining table with four chairs.

In the lounge area you will find the open fireplace with a leather settee, two armchairs, Flat Screen TV (with Italian channels) and a DVD player complete with a large selection of family DVDs. A bookcase with guide books, cook books, local books, novels, maps, leaflets and guest book. A Ipod docking system also a CD player with radio, CDs and board games. Stairs lead to first floor.

On the first floor landing there is a hanging storage area and three doors, one to the shower room, one to the main bedroom and one to the twin bedroom.

The shower room comprises of a w.c., large wash-hand basin and shower (with a small window).

The main bedroom has a kingsize bed with luxurious pocket sprung mattress and verdigris metal bedframe, flat screen TV/DVD player for watching dvds, chest of drawers, radiator, free standing fan and wooden double glazed french windows with internal shutters, leading to its own balcony with room for a chair.

The second bedroom has twin beds with pocket sprung mattresses and metal bedframes, TV for watching DVDs on and a dvd player, a chest of drawers, radiator, fan and french windows with internal shutters also leading onto its own balcony.

A staircase from the landing leads to the attic, which has a sofa for realxing and a bookcase with books and a glazed door which leads onto the large roof terrace which has fantastic panoramic views over the surrounding roof tops to the Maiella mountains.

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, and now has 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.

We had a wonderful Christmas. Casa Rosa is so cozy and full of charm that we felt at home. We enjoyed every moment of our staying and definitely fall in love with Bugnara and we will be back to stay soon. Thank you again.

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

We were lucky enough to buy the villa Casa Rosa seven 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.

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!

LOVELY HOLIDAY AT CASA ROSA

  • 5 out 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 out 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 out 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!

WHAT A FIND!

  • 5 out of 5
This rental has it all! From the relaxing garden to the amazing roof terrace! My daughter loved the poang chairs and the cute little balconies. If you want to go horse riding, down to a lake or walking in the mountains then this is the place to go! I would recommend this holiday house to all of my family and I will go back next summer.

SUPER LITTLE VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Casa Rosa in June and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was very comfortable and had everything that we could possibly have needed. The village was nice and friendly and the whole area was a great place to explore. My wife's favourite spot was the roof terrace and mine, Bar Gino! Thank you Jo & Dave for the use of Casa Rosa, its a super little villa and we look forward to returning again soon! J & C, UK

CASA ROSA - OUR THIRD VISIT!”

  • 5 out of 5
Our 3rd visit to Casa Rosa and as before a very enjoyable, comfortable stay. Amazed at the amount of transformation Jo and Dave have made especially the garden. Sun shone every day and temperature got to 26 degress (not bad for April!) so the thought of leaving for home was not a nice one. Eating out was as good as ever with perhaps the best meal at Ristorante da Paolino in Pescocostanzo. The new addition to Bugnara eating, i.e the Pizza Takeaway was excellent and good value at 1 euro per slice. As Abruzzo offers everything, so does Casa Rosa we will return!! T & K, U.K. April 2013
