I arrived late in the evening, so it wasn't until morning when I walked outside of my apartment (1 of only a few units) and was overwhelmed by a profound sense of peace. I've had many wilderness adventures in my life, but they all required driving at least several hours from civilisation. The Casa Rosa farm is just 15 minutes from Assisi, but driving the circuitous road up the nearby mountain achieves a similar sense of remoteness. There are no other signs of civilisation in sight and the only sounds are birds singing, or perhaps the grunting of a wild boar foraging in a nearby meadow at night. Being enveloped in such a serene environment makes it impossible to carry anxiety or tension. There are many walking trails in the area to explore, and the swimming pool offers spectacular views of the valley while cooling off. I highly recommend Casa Rosa even if you only have a few days.
