Reaching Casa Rosa: FLYING
Perugia ( half hour by car) is served by Ryanair (ryanair.com). The airport is small, bustle-free and well connected to the motorway towards Assisi. Ryanair also flies to Pescara, Ancona and Pisa which is not much further away, and sometimes flight times are more convenient than those to Perugia.
Easyjet (easyjet.com) offers affordable flights to Bologna (north of Florence, 2 - 2.5 hrs drive from Assisi) and Rome (also 2 - 2.5 hrs drive from Assisi).
Car hire is available at the airport: Avis (Perugia Airport office) tel. 0039/075/6929796 or 6929346) Hertz (Perugia - collection at airport can be arranged) tel. 0039/075/5002439
I am a clinical psychologist and photographer - I love nature, wildlife, art and love the tranquility and serenity of life at Casa Rosa (after several years of life in big cities!).
Ella Grima purchased this apartment in 1989
Relaxed, bohemian vibe out in the wilds yet close to civilization. An organic garden and woodland yurt add to the convivial, communal idyll.
Once you've wrenched your gaze from pool-side panoramas over the forested flanks of Monte Subasio National Park, and had your senses tickled by the sweet orchestra of lavender, Russian sage and Mediterranean herbs that assail you – strategically planted to waft their perfumes into the apartments – have a look inside. The mural and decorative works of artist Jennifer Holmes embellish the homely, colourful, bohemian interiors. Antique kettles and pots, bunches of dried herbs suspended from ceilings, well-stocked wine racks and flora 'n' fauna painted surrounds to mirrors and French windows, all lend themselves to a relaxed vibe, while an organic vegetable garden, and a yurt tucked away in the woods, add to the communal, convivial idyll.
There's WiFi if you need it but it won't distract you from the views; lap them up from your balconied terrace. Better still, take the book of local walks provided, add a picnic, and head for the wooded hills.
Thank you for your warm welcome, fresh flowers and wine. Casa Rosa has been a tranquil respite for busy tourists. We have enjoyed our journeys to: Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto, Trevi, Montefalco, Todi, Siena, Cortona and of course, beautiful Assisi.
This is a totally unique spot for those who have seen and done a lot. The place, the district and the surrounding towns are all absolutely special. The charming hostess made us feel at home but never intruded in our space.
