About Tom McInerney
Teacher living and working in the Middle East. I lived in Germany for many years.
Tom McInerney purchased this House in 2017
Why Tom McInerney chose Castiglione Messer Raimondo
I know friends in Qatar who said they had houses in Abruzzo and spoke about the natural beauty of the region. The rest is history
What makes this House unique
The house is a beautifully restored fully air-conditioned farm house finished to the very highest standards. The views, however, are truly awesome. I defy anyone to say they can't relax here. The house has been successfully rented out over the last 10 years and received glowing reviews.
Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
We stayed at LCR for two weeks from 22/07 to 05/08/2017 to 11 people including two children.
The house is splendid, spacious, comfortable and very clean.
The rooms are very large and the bathrooms very well arranged, a large living room with 3 sofas, TV and WiFi comfortably accommodates all occupants, the kitchen is well equipped, we have prepared most of our meals.
The outsides are well maintained, the panorama is magnificent with views of the hills and nearby mountains. Our children especially enjoyed the pool, welcome by this summer of strong heat.
We were able to celebrate our 50 years of marriage with our many guests, a big thank you to Tom the owner
Tom was caring and attentive to all our requests, as well as Sergio and Anna Maria, the housekeepers who were friendly and helpful so that we could have a pleasant stay.
The place is ideal for walks and climbs in the mountains (chain Gran Sasso), the sea at 40 minutes with Monte silvano and Pineto, and all visits to towns and villages around.
We recommend this place, quiet, quiet and safe, for our part we would return to LCR with great pleasure.
So we tell you “ go there, you will not be disappointed !”
Elio and Annie PELINI September 30, 2017.
Many thanks for the wonderful review and kind words.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at LCR and were able to celebrate that milestone in your marriage. You were fantastic guests and, it goes without saying, that you are welcome back anytime.
Fantastisk hus vi var meget tilfredse
Alt fungerede perfekt
Thanks, Gert. I hope the cycling went well!!!
Magnificent well appointed luxury home
We arrived to this beautiful home perfectly positioned in the rolling hillside about 30 minutes drive from Pescara. House well set up for our group of 4, with beds made and fresh towels and toiletries available. The home has wifi and a perfectly laid out country kitchen with all the modern appliances needed to cook at home. Great outdoor sitting dining area. Air conditioning ensured a pleasant sleep at night. Weather was perfect during our stay and we enjoyed use of the pristine swimming pool situated in front garden with 360 degree views of the local landscape. House presented as per description, well maintained and spotlessly clean on our arrival.
We undertook daily trips to Neighbouring villages and a day basking on the beach in Pescara but a couple the highlights for us was Penna the medieval town and the abondoned medieval village of San Sebastian. What finds! Views were breathtaking everywhere we went. Food was excellent. Our inability to converse in Italian was not a handicap locals were very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommend this beautiful home as a base to visit this magnificent pocket of Italy. We will return and can only highly recommend the home to others who wish to get away from the busy, noisy and hectic pace of city life.
Many thanks for the glowing review. It goes without saying that you're more than welcome to return anytime.
I think the San Sebastian you're referring to is San Stefano di Sessanio, a particular favourite with guests and a 'jumping off' point to the Campo Imperatore 'Little Tibet'
Stunning property with magical views .
The description of the property was accurate . The house is set in a stunning location, with amazing vistas. I woke to views of snow capped mountains bathed in sunshine . After a perfect start to the day a short drive to the village provided the opportunity to indulge and have freshly baked croissants, cappuccino and converse with the friendly " locals ".
The house was spacious and the layout perfect for the six of us . The fire in the kitchen took the evening chill off the air and we spent several evenings , chilling playing board games and drinking the excellent local vino . After a hard days treking / cycling it was perfect to relax and hang out in .
The property was well maintained by Sergio and Annemarie , ( the local farmer and his wife ) who are super friendly . They will at a reasonable cost cook dinner and provide complementing local wines .
We were there at Easter so although it was too chilly to use the pool we had some lovely BBQ's. Our days were spent exploring the medival towns , hiking with the occasional trip to the coast .
The local restaurants were exceptionally well priced and served simple but good wholesome food . ( One member of the party was vegetarian but this did not prove to be problematic ).
I would love to revisit and will certainly recommend to my friends .
Many thanks, Debbie, for the kind and considered response. It goes without saying that you are welcome back anytime!!!
Country holiday far away from everything
We arrived at this countryside property a hot day in july and loved the house! It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday - clean and big house with a lovely pool. The rooms are big and the house is very charming. The garden is also great and the pool has a nice size:)We where a big family with some children and everyone loved the house.Several times a week the bakerycar and cheese car come along so you can buy delicious food!The people nearby is very nice,but dont speak English. Nobody speaks english...so have your italianbook with you;) One night we ate at the agriturismo that you drive by on your way up to the house - and it was amazing.Best experience ever and the people was so nice! LOTS of food ! There are some very important things to know tough: This property is on a top with small twisty roads and is far away from most things.The nearby markets(15 min drive)has limited things and the beach/coast is a 40 min drive away.There you have the big supermarkets.There are many animals around the house and we had a dog visiting us many times,but he was nice:) and then you have the chickens,rooster and turkeys that make some noise(but really no problem).Remember that the house is far away from most things,but is perfect for a relaxing holiday! We liked it,but It would have been nice to have a nice town in walking distance. Kind regards from Tanja and family - from Norway
Hi Tanja, many thanks for the review. Yes, it would be nice to stroll to a nearby town, but for many guests, the tranquility of La Casa Rosa is perhaps it’s jewel in the crown. A car is, of course, essential to visit the many natural and architectural wonders of this region.
A little paradise with stunning views!
We had a wonderful stay in La Case Rosa.
We were 3 families, with a total of 7 kids (from 2 to 12).
The house is spacious enough, cosy and well equipped. Rooms are big with comfortable beds.
And the exterior is really nice.
Surrounding view is jaw breaking.
Without forgetting to mention Sergio and his wife living the house next door (but with total privacy) and always available for everything.
You definitely need a car with a decent GPS as you are quite in the middle of nowhere.
I warmly recommend La Casa Rosa.
Many thanks for the lovely review Sébastien.
I'm pleased you and your family enjoyed La Casa Rosa during the summer.
The roads up to the farmhouse can be quite twisty and turny, so if you suffer from travel sickness or have small children it may be a good idea to bring some travel pills.
There is a small lake not far from the farmhouse: ..... A lovely family from Denmark explored the area and left me these comments....'there is a small lake if you continue on the small road coming from St Giorgio, (I believe second road to the right if you skip the driveway to La Casa Rosa. and continue about 800 m). I went there with Ella, talked to the nice farmers whom the lake belongs to, and were allowed to do some fishing. Caught a small carp, but there is bigger ones too, and certainly other species as well. Hooked one big thing, but didn't land it - fishermen's tales, you know!'
