Assisi self catering holiday apartments with pool (sleeps 2-5) - Piero della Francesca

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Oct-2016
Self Catering Holiday Apartments with Pool near Assisi, National Park, Umbria

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 holiday apartments - one large apartment occupying the whole of the first floor, and two smaller apartments sharing the ground floor and a fourth apartment in a separate cottage. Casa Rosa is surrounded by woods and farmland, all apartments have beautiful views over the National Park of Mount Subasio.

The accommodation is completely self-contained, with its own kitchen and bathroom and balcony or terrace. All is simply but comfortably furnished, beautifully decorated, and have full central heating. Casa Rosa can accommodate from 2 to 5 people. 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.*

The Farm: 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 butterflies.

Hiking in Umbria: A Casket of Nature, Traditions, and Legends.

From Casa Rosa it is possible to hike a numerous amount of trails in the Umbrian region, a mountain chain rising in the heart of Italy and reaching Mt. Vettore (2,476m). A territory where the magic of local nature, history, and culture have contributed in defining a unique and unrepeatable reality. Here, in the kingdom of the mythic Sibilla, the Parco Nazionale Monti Sibillini was established in 1993 (with over 70,000 ha), with the aim to safeguard the environment, promote a social and economic sustainable development, and favour the creation of a 'Park suitable to everyone'. The wolf, the golden eagle, the peregrine, and a number of endemic species are the most evident elements of a biological richness which, along with the charm of the abbeys and of the Medieval historical centers lying in a crown at the foot of the mountains, have shaped an old and suggestive world where time has stopped to honour a reality of extraordinary beauty

Reaching Casa Rosa: FLYING -

Perugia ( half hour by car) is served by Ryanair (ryanair.com). Depending on season and day of the week, flights can cost as little as £20 return. 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. Flight/car hire packages can be arranged through the airline.

A truly special place

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area for a couple of nights over Easter and Casa Rosa was suggested to us. I'm very glad we decided to stay here!

We arrived late on the Saturday night over the Easter weekend. Assisi was busy, but we followed the sat nav halfway up the hill until Alessandro found us and we follwed him the rest of the way. It was at that point I knew we were going to enjoy our stay!

In the morning we awoke to amazing view of the land and had a traditional Italian Easter breakfast, prepared freshly by Alessandro and Ella. It was simply devine.

We were told about a couple of places to go and see during the day and were suggested somewhere for an evening meal. I can't remember to the name of the restaurant, but all the food was cooked over an open fire, it was amazing!

We spend 2 nights there before we had to leave, but can't recommenced Casa Rosa highly enough. The place is magical, the hosts, Ella and Alessandro are amazing, they are both super friendly (and speak great English) and nothing is too much trouble for them!

Quiet, relaxing, truly wonderful – spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Casa Rosa. We stayed in the smaller studio, which was cozy and perfectly set up for a comfortable stay in this truly inspiring location. It is a quick drive to Assisi, but worlds away from the touristy feel and hustle. Ella and her husband Alessandro were lovely hosts, very available and friendly. We also were pleasantly surprised to have access to the washing machine and also Alessandro's delicious frozen meals that were ready to pop into our oven, these were some of the best meals we had in Italy! The studio was a joy to be in – great views, sunshine, it even smelled good! We hope to be back someday.

ASSISI, the nearest town, is the home of St. Francis and his female counterpart, St. Clare. For seven centuries Assisi has been a focus for pilgrimage, and the area is rich in traditions associated with the saints. The town itself has been carefully preserved, its steep medieval streets winding between churches and houses of rose-coloured stone.

Within a 60 km (40 mile) radius of Casa Rosa are the ancient hill towns of Gubbio, Spello, Cortona, Spoleto, Orvieto and Todi, each with its medieval centre. Perugia, the region's capital, is 25 km. (15 miles) away, a stylish university city with striking medieval architecture, important Etruscan remains and major works of art.

To the West, Lake Trasimeno offers swimming and water sports for most of the year. To the South and East lies Umbria's wildest scenery - the forests and gorges of the Valnerina, the mountain peaks and remote alpine pastures of the Monti Sibillini.

Other Activities: Hiking, Bird watching, Pilgrim destination, Historical cities
