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 four holiday apartments - one large apartment occupying the whole of the first floor, two smaller apartments sharing the ground floor and one apartment in the converted stables.

The Farm is surrounded by woods and farmland, located on a spur the farm has panoramic views over the National Park of Mount Subasio. 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 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 butterfly. Along the river are waterfalls and natural pools where one can bathe in the summer. The hills, woods and valleys offer many possible routes for walking.

Casa Rosa is an Agriturismo (agritourism), it is an example of a traditional Umbrian farmhouse and retains all the original features. The estate is lovingly cared for by Jennifer Holmes, the resident artist and painter who has lived on the farm for the past 30 years. The main building has been refurbished into three self catering holiday apartments while the old stables which are in a separate unit have been transformed into a beautiful cottage. Jennifer lives and works in her studio which was once the old barn. Guests can enjoy the lovely swimming pool with panoramic views over the park of Mount Subasio, dine al fresco in one of the gazebos or even enjoy an evening pool-side barbecue. Families with children can explore the wildlife in the woods, the streams and the waterfalls or try and find the hidden yurts in the woods...
