Guestbook comments from the owner
if i could give six (or ten) stars, i would. i spent 5 weeks here this fall (home six days ago and i miss it already). the house is... heaven. giampoalo has done an amazing job with the renovation - truly top notch - and the layout is spectacular for a group that also needs some space to themselves (e.g. every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom). giuliana, the house manager, is a gem. she takes care of everything, makes a mean pasta and gnocchi and is all smiles. the experience exceeded every expectation that i had! i should also say: i had ~50 friends come and stay with me over the course of the time that i was there and this opinion was universal. we're not an easy crowd to please. really truly and literally spectacular. highly recommended. really.

I very much enjoy the countryside and Umbria has an unspoiled country environemnt whilst offering the opportunity for cultural sightseeing. it is also close to Rome and Florence which makes them easily reachable.

I enjoy the beauty of silence, great local food and, most often, I enjoy the company of friends visiting. The house is perfect for groups of friends which want to share living togheter but at the same time preserving their own privacy. The heart of it all is the big professional kitchen which makes cooking a great experience for the entire company.

TIMELESS UMBRIA

  • 5 of 5
This is fifth year in a row that we have spent first week in July in LacasaRossa. Villa lies across spacious and beautiful property that is totally hidden from outside. As we are party of 3 we feel like kings in villa for 12 person. All rooms are spacious and well decorated. Kitchen is equipped for professionals and it is really enjoy to cook there. One can enjoy having meal or reading a book in so many compartments inside villa and around it. The view from terrace is magnificent. It is just enough to watch cloud, feel wind and drink local Umbrian wine Grechetto. Speechless. Timeless.
During a day pool is the center of all activates. It is really big and there is a lot of space around it for sunbathing under hot Umbrian sun or in the light shadow. At night we usually go to Todi for a dinner in one of restaurants with terrace or just for an ice-cream or drink.
There are two excellent day-trips from Todi to historical Assisi and Orvieto. The road to Assisi is better. One can reach Rome in a day and come back the same day (1.5 hour drive) but it is better to stay there overnight.
Our cook, Giuliana has become our friend over years. As we don’t speak Italian so well we have using google translate to write words and short sentences and getting Italian translations. It works.

WE HAVE ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE

  • 5 of 5
We have come to this peaceful and luxury property near Todi already four times. The most important part of villa is the pool, where we spent most of the time. We could easily spent here another week, just doing nothing, so relaxing and beautiful it is.

LACASAROSSA

  • 5 of 5
Visited LacasaRossa May 2013 for a family holiday, eight adults and three young children, beautiful house, with plenty of space to spread out, all six bedrooms are a fantastic size, all have there own bathrooms. A big plus! Pool is a beautiful infinity pool, well placed for people with young children, just behind the house. LacasaRossa is well situated in a beautiful location with fantastic views, although it does take a little finding the first time you visit!
Charlie, the villa manager was very helpful advising us of places to visit and things to do, taking into consideration the different age groups in our party. She also very kindly sourced a Birthday Cake for my Son and Grandaughter's birthdays. It was good to have the 3 hours a day housekeeping also, it helped us keep on top of things! we came back each day to a lovely tidy kitchen, which I'm not sure would have been the case without Giuliana and her helper! Lovely holiday in a beautiful home, highly recommend! Thank you.

LA BELLA VITA AT LA CASA ROSSA

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed an excellent 2-week stay at La Casa Rossa in Todi in early May.

The villa is wonderful: Secluded for plenty of privacy, yet just a 35-minute walk to the center of town or a 5-minute to the nearby village for shopping. It sits on a hill with a fantastic view of the Tiber valley and the surrounding forests and farm fields.

The bedrooms are huge and each features its own large en suite bathroom. Furnishings are "modern minimalist" and complement the contemporary artwork and photographs of Rohn Meyer found in each room (and throughout the house). If you're sharing the house with a group of friends, you can easily escape the hustle and bustle in the kitchen and living rooms and enjoy a nice nap in peace and quiet on the comfortable bed.

The industrial kitchen is every "wanna be" chef's dream. All the appliances (including an induction and a gas stove), pots, pans, and gadgets are there. And there's even enough china and silverware to serve a multiple-course meal to a full house of 12!

You'll spend hours in the dining room enjoying the Italian food you prepare (or have someone cook for you), enjoying the large fireplace nearby, or the panorama window looking out over the valley. And when the weather is right, take your meal outside on the patio around the front of the house for a meal "al fresco" as the sun sets in the distance.

While I'm on cooking, be sure to take a cooking class (or two) at Il Ghiottone Umbro just a 10-minute drive away as you enter Todi. Thomas and Lisbeth are great hosts, teachers, and chefs!

And the pool! Early May was cool, but we still swam in the large infinity pool daily and enjoyed sunning and eating there mid-day. It's looks particularly magical at night when it and the house are lit up against a starry sky or full moon.

There's plenty to see and do in Todi and throughout Umbria. Two family members with us ventured into Rome twice, but that involved a 40 minute drive to Orvieto and a hour's train ride into the heart of Rome. My advice: Stick to Umbria and visit the the fascinating hill-top villages and cities (like Perugia, about 35 minutes by car away.)

The staff are all friendly and go out of their way to make sure that you've having a fun, relaxing time. Count on them to point you to the right restaurant (Cavour for pizza), introduce you to to local artists (visit Bibo's Gallery), and sign you up for some fun activities (like the cooking class mentioned earlier).

You won't go wrong by booking La Casa Rossa.

HOME FOR TABLET TASTES

  • 5 of 5
Lacasarossa is an exquisite property, impeccably maintained, with a design hotel aesthetic wrapped in classic Umbrian charm. Perfectly suited for holiday rentals, each bedroom is generously sized with its own en-suite full bathroom. The professional grade, gourmet kitchen makes at-home dining a pleasure. And the infinity swimming pool is one of the home's loveliest features. Temperatures hovered near 40-degrees C when we visited, and the house is unfortunately not air-conditioned, making for some uncomfortably hot nights. Apart from that, the house was 5-star.
