About Ella Grima

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

Why Ella Grima chose Assisi

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.

One of the loveliest places we have ever visited

  • 5 of 5

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.

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
