About the property

Villa in Castiglione Messer Raimondo, Nr. Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy - Total Peace and Tranquility set in its own Olive Grove

Casa Mimosa is an exceptionally well presented, newly renovated Maiella stone villa in the heart of Abruzzo with stunning views of Gran Sasso, nestling in beautiful rural countryside, standing proudly above its own olive grove. This old farmhouse, steeped in history, has been renovated to a very high standard with outdoor solar shower, ceiling fans, air con in the bedrooms, central heating, Sky TV, DVD, Wii and wifi - in fact - every mod con! The 45 ft kitchen - with American fridge/freezer, 6 ring gas cooker, dishwasher and microwave, which was the original cowshed, has been painstakingly renovated to create a fabulous living space with an inviting woodburner at one end. Fully equipped laundry room. Snug sittingroom with another woodburner and Sky TV for those crisp winter days. The impressive 13.5m pool with diving board and large pool house with fullsize table tennis table and drinks fridge, just have to be seen!

About Jane Young

We are Jane and Sophie. Sophie lives in Hampshire and Jane in Wiltshire with lots of teenagers between them! Jane was a music teacher and Sophie, a photographer but now we enjoy running Casa Mimosa and Casa Toti as holiday lets as well as organising and catering for 4 or 5 yoga weeks each year. We are very excited about our new boutique wedding business at Casa Mimosa - such a fantastic venue for up to 70 people. Contact us for all the details!

Jane Young purchased this villa in 2005

Why Jane Young chose Teramo

We bought Casa Mimosa in 2005 with the aim to create a holiday home for 2 or 3 families to holiday together. We both have teenagers and wanted our teenagers to enjoy holidaying with us for as long as possible but knew this wasn't going to happen unless we could provide the perfect environment for them and their friends as well as us and our friends. Casa Mimosa has now done this for 4 years. We are both passionate about Casa Mimosa and the local area. We will never tire of the stunning views, the mountains, the beaches, the charming locals and of course, the local wines! Abruzzo is still one of the least known parts of Italy - and shouldn't be. Come to Casa Mimosa and experience a wonderful part of Italy!

What makes this villa unique

Casa Mimosa has all mod cons and can cope with groups of up to 18 people. We have 2 cots, stair gate and 2 highchairs for the youngest members of the party, DVDs, games and books for children, wii, table tennis, diving board and DVDs for teenagers and lots of different areas for the adults to escape to! The whole ground floor is totally accessible for wheelchair users. We aimed to cater for everyone.Casa Mimosa has the most stunning views in the area. We welcome small wedding parties. The house can be used for a party of up to 50 people as long as you contact us first. The terrace is perfect for an outside party but there is also space inside to seat 50. Contact us for pictures of weddings that have taken place at Casa Mimosa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Pimms, pool and complete tranquility - what more could we ask for? This is perfect. Bridget, Southampton.

We woke up every morning and gasped at the view! Talk about a loo with a view! we had everything we could possibly ask for and more - didn't do enough of the local area because we couldn't get the kids out of the pool. Brian, Southsea

The National parks in Abruzzo are stunning - and we'd never heard of them. Definitely coming back - so much left to explore and do. Fantastic house - so much space. Thank you.

Theresa and George, Falmouth

Perfect home for families to vacation together

  • 4 of 5

I spent two night in Casa Mimosa over New Year's. We were 5 families with 2 children each. There was plenty of space both inside and outside. The house is extremely well kept and looked after. The house is furnished in a modern rustic way and had everything we could have asked for. Linen was very new and clean, kitchenware was plenty and we even got baby beds ready in our rooms when we arrived.

It's really perfect if you are looking for a cosy home to stay in, but it's not walking distance from a town so you really have to bring everything with you (ie. groceries).
