Wunderschöne Apartments in toller Lage
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenhalt in der Casa della Rosa. Meine Schwester wohnte in der Suite della Ortensia. Beide Apartments sind schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Ein gemeinsamer Innenhof mit Outdoor-Küche (die zur Suite gehört) verbindet die Wohnung, wobei jede separat zugänglich ist. Für uns war es sehr angenehm, quasi das ganze Haus für uns zu haben! Die Casa della Rosa hat einen wunderbaren Ausblick von der Terasse, was vor allem abends traumhaft ist, da da die Temperatur angenehm ist. Auch der Pool liegt wunderschön mit Ausblick! Die Gegend um Tuoro ist sehr idyllisch und absolut untouristisch, was uns sehr gut gefallen hat! Auch die Kleinstadt Sessa Aurunca ist sehr ursprünglich und schön mit netten Plätzen und einem Wochenmarkt mit regionalen Produkten. Das Naturschutzgebiet Roccamonfina ist toll zum Wandern, was wir mit kleinen Kindern nur begrenzt nutzen konnten. Zum Meer sind es etwa 30 Minuten mit dem Auto. Dort gibt es Sandstrände mit Infrastruktur. Paola und ihre Familie waren sehr hilfsbereit und immer vor Ort, falls man Fragen hatte. Danke nochmal für den schönen Urlaub! Hoffentlich sehen wir uns wieder!
A Quaint, Quirky Delight in Campania
We stayed two weeks in both parts of Casa Rosa - two adults, two teenagers. The owners were very helpful answering questions in English, and showed us great kindness. The properties look like the photos, but we could not have imagined how complex/quirky the place is. It is very nicely decorated and equipped and is always kept beautifully clean by daily staff. The courtyard is a lovely, calm, radiant space, with lots of charming features. The main property (up stairs) is spacious and bright with a well-equipped kitchen and big fridge. The outdoor eating terrace is delightful, if small, and has great views, as do the two spacious bedrooms. The main living area is big if you want to sit indoors, and there is more outside seating downstairs in the courtyard, although it is shaded and has no views (good for evening relaxation and daytime shade). The smaller property downstairs is nicely laid out and well appointed (but its little kitchen has no oven or fridge). It worked for us to have the teenagers in the main property while we stayed downstairs. But if both parts of Casa Rosa were rented by two different families it would feel too close with not enough privacy. It was also hard climbing the stairs every time we wanted to be together, or to fetch things. In fact, the whole village requires you to be fit - it is on a very steep hillside, and you have to walk up from the car park, up the stairs to the property and up more hill and more stairs to the pool (the website does warn you of this). It is well worth the effort though! We spent most of our time at the pool, relaxing, eating, swimming and enjoying the views and privacy (it is shared with a few other users). The pool area was beautifully clean and well equipped for serving food. There was no facility for outdoor cooking anywhere (no grill/BBQ) which we hope they will remedy. We cooked in the house and carried the food to the poolside, which added to the fun. The overall feeling in the property is delightful and it is definitely luxurious while very rustic with a lot of hard stone. The one thing it did lack that was advertised was a washing machine. We were disappointed we had to pay extra for our laundry. The village is quite isolated (which we liked) - and you have to drive to the nearest restaurants. We really enjoyed those we tried in Sessa Aurunca (local, simple, tasty food, friendly service). The station is about 25 mins drive away. A wonderful stay for families or couples wanting to explore!
First of all let me thank you for your time in providing us with so detailed observations. It was a pleasure for us hosting you. You are excellent guests, respectful of our property/decoration … the kind of “explorers” every home owner wishes to have. We apologize for the irritation caused with the washing machine and the barbecue.
Civil protection authorities are imposing strict rules on lighting fires outdoor (mediterranean vegetation, summer drought and wind are the cause of hefty flare-ups in the Mediterranean). That is why we have excluded the use of grill and BBQ at the swimming pool. Regarding the privacy issue, and for readers, it is fair to mention that you were prepared to pay up for the difference.
