This characteristic farmhouse, which was restored in 2006, offers all the mod cons, yet retains its original features. This is a prestige property, the likes of which are becoming very difficult to find in this outstanding area.
Situated in the hamlet of San Giorgio between the typical Italian, hilltop, medieval market towns of Castiglione and Penne, La Casa Rosa is just a 10-minute drive from all your needs and necessities. Within easy reach are family run restaurants (some just a few Km away) which use locally grown produce. They say Abruzzo is the kitchen of Italy. After discovering this incredible area and eating in the local family run restaurants you will see why!
La Casa Rosa is just a 30-minute drive from golden, sandy, blue-flag beaches and turquoise waters of the Adriatic Sea. The National parks of the Gran Sasso (Italy’s largest) and the Maiella are close by, making la Casa Rosa an ideal location for nature enthusiasts, bike riders, walkers, painters, skiers, adrenaline junkies and beach lovers alike. Rome is less than a 2-hour scenic journey across the majestic Apennine mountains and makes a superb day out.
The property has been successfully rented out as a holiday home since 2007 and has been visited and enjoyed by guests from all over the world. The owners earn around €20,000 from this activity.
In addition, it is possible to buy more land, measuring 7,800sqm, which contains a ‘rustico’ which can be renovated, plus various outbuildings.
