A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with Casa Mimosa and as many have said, the photos cannot capture the beauty and magic of the property. It is in a remote section of the Teramo/Abruzzo and there are rolling hills and the magestic mountains in the back drop. you will definitely need a car to explore and to get around. the home is also quite special and is packed with a feeling that makes you settle in. among my special times were our dinner times at the patio table where conversations lasted for hours and the pool night we had will; but there were so many special moments of the land being healing and transformative. the first week there were multiple families and a total of 11 people and it was still spacious. the second week we were 4 and it felt cozy. the grounds keeper and his wife came daily in the morning. it was wonderful to have them cook some of the meals especially upon our arrival. I did travel to Cinque Terra which was quite beautiful , but the time at Casa Mimosa made my time in Italy wonderful. Thank you Jane and Sophie for have created this beautiful and healing place.

Our entire family loved this house! Five stars

  • 5 of 5

As nice as the pictures of the house were, they did not do it justice. It was much more beautiful than the pictures showed. My wife and I, our son's family, our daughter's family, my nephew and his wife, all loved this house. Everyday, when I woke, I looked out our bedroom window and just enjoyed the view.

Abruzzo may not be for everyone, but we loved it. Some of our family stayed in Rome for a few days before all of us meeting here. They all said they loved Rome, but this house in Abruzzo was more like they pictured Italy to be. It was a great experience.

We ate at local restaurants some nights, had Luigi do a bar-b-q for us one night, and my wife fixed dinner some nights, pasta of course. The kitchen was great, the large table on the porch was fabulous for large family dinners.

The kids loved the pool, the Wii game, and the table tennis. The adults loved the bedrooms, kitchen, large dining room. The house had everything that we needed. Everything was as good as we could have hoped for.

It was a truly wonderful experience. I had taken an internet course in Italian before going. I learned some elementary Italian; enough to "get by". It made the experience so much better. Because the area is off the normal tourist track, not many people spoke very much English. We felt like we were really seeing Italy, and we loved it!

We spent a second week in northern Italy, and that was beautiful also, but this house was special. My wife and I have been to Italy several times, but this was the favorite for us. We would highly recommend this house

Wonderful surroundings inside and out !

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
