The roads up to the farmhouse can be quite twisty and tourney, 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 lovelly 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 - fishermens tales, you know!'

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My daughter, Evie, and I in one of the agritourismos nearby to La Casa Rosa. My wife and I brought La Casa Rosa in 2006 and spent over a year renovating to bring up to an exceptional standard. We love the area and make regular visits to Italy when we can.We especially enjoy eating the food and mixing with the locals. Their way of life is unlike any other I have come across!! We run our foreign lettings and UK renovations business from our home in Epping Forest on the North eastern edge of London.

Why Castiglione Messer Raimondo:
Its character, its uniquness and its stunning location in the hills overlooking the Gran Sasso to the West and the Adriatic coast in the distance in the East.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Original Farmhouse made form natural Maeilla stone. The modern rear extension of the farmhouse brings it to the 21st centaury.
