About the Owner

We are a bi-cultural couple: American and Italian. We have lived around the world and consider Umbria our home. We grow olives and love living on a quiet country lane, just a few hundred meters from La Casetta Rosa. We are available to welcome our guests personally and to provide suggestions and help when needed. We love sharing our favorite place in the world with guests.

Beautiful property with stunning views of the Italian countryside

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time here and really felt like we were in the heart of Italy. Despite the feeling of isolation we were still close enough to all amenities such as shops and restaurants but you do need a car. Waking up to the rolling hills is something that will stay with us for a long time. The only slight downside was the size of the pool which was more of a plunge pool. We have three children who wanted to spend a lot of time in the pool but it wasn't really big enough. They did however make the best of it and we all still had a great time.

This is a wonderful, rural retreat with spectacular views. The villa is a gem.

  • 5 of 5

The breathtaking mountains and sunsets make this a memorable place to stay. The villa is both comfortable and thoughtfully decorated and equipped. Sharri is a thoughtful and warm host who wants to ensure your visit is the best it can be, she is a source of useful local information and is happy to book restaurnt reservations for those of us with limited Italian!

There is much to be explored and enjoyed locally.

I would happily recommend this as a place to stay in unspoilt Umbria.

This is a wonderful villa. Everything you need and want. Beautiful views. Close to San Terenziano and Todi for grocery shopping. Great location for day touring. We went to Deruta, Montefalco, Asissi, Perugia, Orvieto. Wonderful restaurants very nearby. The owners are so helpful with anything you need. Great tips on where to buy Deruta ceramics. Want to go back for sure.

Outstanding Home in Umbria--A Truly Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to use this Umbrian home as our 1 week respite from our super busy Italian vacation. Upon arrival, we were very pleased at the condition of the house, its amenities, and its location. We were able to enjoy several day trips to local towns, and fixed several dinners in the Italian grill and in the kitchen. We really enjoyed living more like "locals" and embracing all that Umbria has to offer. This is a beautiful, well kept, immaculate home that made our trip to Umbria very special. There is plenty to do in the region, and local grocery stores, markets, restaurants and gas stations. My husband enjoyed the house so much, he's looking at locations nearby to purchase one of our own! We would rent this lovely home again in a heartbeat!

Perfect Summer

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the most perfect July last summer at La Casetta Rosa. We couldn't get enough of the views and the sunsets were glorious. The location is perfect for day trips to all the hill towns in Umbria and offers a sense of seclusion and at the same time access to everything you need from groceries to easy access to public transportation. The house was complete with everything we needed to prepare meals. The pool was perfect for relaxing. Sharri was so helpful and provided lots of local knowledge to help us fit right into the Umbrian life. We hope to come back to Umbria again and will look forward to another stay at La Casetta Rosa.

La Casetta Rosa

  • 4 of 5

The view from the garden is stunning and watching the sunset each evening was a real delight. Although the pool is fairly small, we enjoyed using the swimjet. The descriptions re the property are accurate. Our teenagers appreciated having wifi. There is an excellent pizzeria restaurant/takeaway within half a mile of the house. Although very rural, many of the old towns and places worth visiting are within easy reach by car. A lovely relaxing holiday. Thank you!

From the Owner

We are almost in the center of Umbria, which means we can jump in the car and get to dozens of places to visit for the day. We are close to services -- restaurants, banks, supermarkets, etc. -- but down our country lane there is peace, quiet and relaxation. Here the birds sing and the bees buzz without being drowned out by traffic noise. It's sublime.
