The villa was everything we expected and more than adequate for a family of 5. The large rooms, huge terraces and great outdoor spaces all made for a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Kitchen was very well equipped, laundry room is great and there’s even a barbeque to have a go at cooking your own Arrosticini (Abruzzese lamb kebabs). A good TV and wi-fi kept the kids very happy too !
Bedrooms and bathrooms are all large and comfortably appointed, all rooms have terrace access, so lovely to walk out first or last thing and take in the stunning views.
The pool was brilliant and we spent hours swimming, splashing and lounging on the comfortable beds. We had no issues with pool cleanliness, as mentioned by previous reviewer; with the pool being thoroughly cleaned twice during our stay and very well maintained.
Handovers were easy and straightforward, with the house very clean on arrival. Information about the house and local area is excellent, we followed restaurant recommendations and weren’t ever disappointed. Communication from the owners was also first class.
There are great local restaurants within a few kms, plus a brilliant winery down the road, so you really don’t have to go far to enjoy a true taste of Abruzzo and a warm reception from the locals.
Atri is a lovely little town and well worth a visit, especially on market day (Monday). Great local produce, good cafes / ice creams and several good value restaurants as well.
With the beach at Silvi just down the road and supermarkets and other shops even closer, it really does have everything you could want within a stone’s throw.
Overall – fantastic villa with great facilities in an amazing location. We won’t ever forget our sundowners on the terrace taking in the views over the valley ! Highly recommended.
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.
