Assisi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

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

Peaceful,relaxing, beautiful Casa Rosa.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late at night at Casa Rosa somewhat stressed after two days of intense travel. All I remember, getting out of the car in the dark, is the immediate silence and the scents of lavender and jasmine. We loved sitting on our little terrace late into the night listening to the quiet and delighting in the blinking lights of fireflies. Our little stable house was charming and rustic, as we expected it to be. Assisi is a 10 or fifteen minute drive away and is truly charming, historical and spiritual. We usually went later in the day for a walk and dinner.

We were so exhausted by our daily lives at home that we found ourselves drawn to spending the hot parts of the day by, or in, the pool. We loved the pool! Set in the Umbrian hills, surrounded by olive groves, oak forests, and edged by flowers and a large bank of lavender, it was sublime. We could only see 2 other homes in the distance. After getting up late for coffee on the little patio, I would find myself chuckling as I listened to my husbands snores only a few hours later from his poolside lounge under an umbrella.

Our 14 year old daughter and I tried to count all the different butterflies we saw every day, in all shapes, sizes and colors but we lost count.

We have a family tradition of agreeing on one word to epitomize a place we have been and our word for Casa Rosa is "soft". Soft air, sounds, hills, trees.

Jennifer, the owner, was extremely kind and patient with our questions. It is clear that Casa Rosa is a gentle reflection of herself and what she has intentionally created over the years. My visit was enriched by meeting her and seeing her art; paintings, and mixed media. Inspiring.

You can easily travel to innumerable towns and villages within an hours drive away if you want sights and restaurants. We didn't.
We were quite thrilled with walks, talks, wines and food, and spending relaxing time here together as a family in such peace.

May at Casa Rosa

  • 5 of 5
This was my third visit to Casa Rosa, which is probably the most peaceful
and relaxing place in the world. But the first time in May rather than
August, would it be OK I wondered? It was fantastic! The weather was
glorious, the pool warm but the greatest treat for us was the wildlife.
Although this was the first time I haven’t seen wild boar at Casa Rosa,
other things made up for it. The cherry tree on the way to the pool was
laden with ripe cherries warmed by the sun, it seemed the more we ate the
more there were! There were so many wild flowers including pretty orchids
and exotic butterflies. We watched hoopoes on the lawn, found porcupine
quills, the bird song was magnificent, they seemed to sing from dawn to dusk
and then as night fell, we heard night jars. As it got dusk sitting outside
with a glass of wine, we suddenly noticed little twinkling lights around the
bushes, fire flies. They seemed to get brighter and brighter, darting about
rather like Tinker Bell in Peter Pan, a short walk up the drive they covered
the bank above us, like tiny flashing Christmas lights. Such happy memories.
Thank you Casa Rosa for sharing it with us, what a very special place.

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
