Self-catering Holiday Rentals near Assisi (Umbria, Italy)
Casa Rosa is a traditional stone farmhouse set high in the green hills of Umbria, some ten kilometres (or six miles) north-east of Assisi. The house is divided into self-catering holiday apartments – one large holiday apartment occupying the entire of the first floor of the original farmhouse, two smaller apartments sharing the ground floor, a small cottage in the converted stables; a two-bedroom apartment; and a studio apartment in a new extension. Each apartment is completely self-contained, with its own kitchen and bathroom, and its own balcony or terrace.
All the apartments are simply but comfortably furnished, beautifully decorated, and have full central heating. There is also spectacular swimming pool, shared by the apartments: located above the house in a marvellously tranquil position, it enjoys panoramic views over the National Park of Mount Subasio.
The pool is bordered along one side by lavender, local herbs and a large cherry tree; on the other, a wide terrace is paved in local stone, with sun-beds and deck chairs for lounging and sunbathing. Also found here are the barbecue and gazebo. Around the house is a small farm of 40 hectares (or 100 acres), roughly one-third cultivated, one-third pasture, and one-third wooded with planted trees.
Each holiday rental is completely self-contained, with its own kitchen and bathroom, and balcony or terrace. All the apartments are simply but comfortably furnished, beautifully decorated, and have full central heating. Towels for the pool and bed linen are provided and a child’s cot is available if required. There is free Wi-Fi and a telephone which guests can use.
The farm is surrounded by woodlands and pastures, and elevated as it is 450 metres in the hills, offers magnificent views over the National Park of Mount Subasio. The hillside and forest hide an abundance of local wildlife: martens, porcupine and wild boar have all been seen on the farm, and 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 some 30 varieties of butterfly. Along the river are waterfalls and natural pools, where one can bathe in the summer. The hills, woods and valleys offer countless possible routes for walking.
Assisi, the nearest town, was the home of St. Francis and his female counterpart, St. Clare. For seven centuries now, Assisi has been a focus for pilgrimage, with the area 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.
