CASA ROSA is a traditional stone farmhouse set high in the green hills of Umbria, central Italy, some 10 km (6 miles) north-east of Assisi. The house is divided into three holiday apartments - one large apartment occupying the whole of the first floor, and two smaller apartments sharing the ground floor. All have access to the new swimming pool with panoramic views. Casa Rosa is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of woods and farmland.
THE FARM stands in a regional park, on a spur above a small river, with breathtaking views over the Tescio valley and across the hills to Mount Subasio. The owner, an English painter, lives on the premises. The immediate area is one of great natural beauty. The hills are covered by forest, mostly oak, and by small farms with their olive groves, pastures and fields of wheat, barley and oats. Far from any main road, it is a very quiet and peaceful place. For most of the day the only sound is the singing of birds and crickets and the river in the valley below.
The hills and forest hide martens, porcupine and wild boar, all of which have been seen on the farm. The wealth of bird life includes buzzards, goldfinches and hoopoes. In spring the the meadows, fields and verges abound in wild flowers, among them poppies, cyclamen, wild gladioli, and many types of orchid. From May to July fireflies dance in the night, and through the summer the Farm is home to thirty varieties of butterfly. Along the river are waterfalls and natural pools where one can bathe in the summer. The hills, woods and valleys offer many possible routes for walking.
EACH APARTMENT is completely self-contained, with its own kitchen and bathroom and balcony or terrace. All the apartments are simply but comfortably furnished, beautifully decorated, and have full central heating.
A deposit of 30% is requested on booking.
(Prices are per apartment per week from Saturday to Saturday inclusive of cleaning, linen, gas & electricity, heating, Wi-FI access)
Casa Rosa's position, over 450 m. (1500 ft) in the hills, means that in summer it is generally cooler than most of the rest of Italy.
Towels and bed-linen are provided and a child's cot is available if required. There is a telephone which guests can use.
"This must be one of the most beautiful and tranquil places in the world. We have enjoyed every day, from the late arrival the first night when the ginger cat gave us such a warm welcome, to the glimpses of wild boar, flowers etc..." (from the guest book)
