About Joanna Mundy

We live in Ludlow, Shropshire with our fifteen year old daughter and visit our house at least four times a year and still haven't discovered all that this beautiful part of Abruzzo has to offer. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you in anyway that we can. Best wishes Jo and Dave Mundy

Joanna Mundy purchased this villa in 2007

Why Joanna Mundy chose L'Aquila

We were lucky enough to buy the villa Casa Rosa nine years ago, it hadn't been lived in for forty years, so we spent 2 years restoring it to its former glory. We have been renting it out about 9 years ago and in that short time we have had so much fun and had some lovely guests, some of whom have become firm friends.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Rosa is completely unique it is a completely detached villa, complete with a garden, terraces and roof terrace, which has a 360 degree view of the village and surrounding countryside, but also in the middle of a medieval village. So you can pop the village shops and bars whenever you want. We just fell in love with it and hope you do too!
