Review 695: Casa Rosa, Apartment
apartments on a farm near Assisi, Umbria
27 Sept - 4 Oct, 2003, 1 week
Casa Rosa has three small aparments in one stone house set on 28 acres not far from Assisi. We rented the middle apartment, number two, on the ground floor and found it exceeded our expectations. We only wish we had rented it for two weeks instead of one!
The property is off the main road and down a long, private driveway. The views are spectacular - of the surroundig countryside and of the lovely garden in front of the house. It is extremely private and serene. The owner, a British artist who has lived in Italy for many years, lives on the property and was extremely helpful and friendly. She even had wine, chocolates and flowers in the apartment when we arrived!
The apartment is not large, but it is well appointed and immaculate! The King bed was very comfortable and the lighting was excellent. The bathroom was small, but modern, with a separate, enclosed shower. Everything sparkled. We had a small kitchen with everything we needed for simple, light meals. The living area had a sofa bed that could sleep two children. French doors opened onto our private, covered terrace with those great views!
We found Casa Rosa to be a good location for exploring northern Umbria. Only about 10K to Assisi and easy to get to Spello, Bevagna, Deruta, Perugia, Gubbio. There were lots of maps and brochures in the apartment about the local area. The owner has also mapped out several country walks that begin and end on the property.
We loved our little apartment and it was extremely reasonably priced. We were also able to use the washing machine and hang our clothes on the owner's line. The three resident cats were all friendly and visited us each day! I would definately recommend it and hope to return.
