We spent 2 weeks at the beautiful Casa Rosa and loved every minute of it. The villa is a heavenly spot: utterly quiet, surrounded by green fields, olive groves and hills. The apartments are simple and rustic, but comfortable. We spent a lot of time chilling out at base, making simple meals, sitting out on the balcony quaffing local wine and watching the world go by; having a dip in the pool. The owner, Jennifer Worth and her lovely family, are charming, gentle and caring hosts. Jennifer is a fine artist and we very much enjoyed meeting her, though she was in the final stages of cancer and, very sadly, has since died.
Casa Rosa makes a great base from which to explore Assisi and the surrounding district. Assisi, though not a large town, has a huge amount to explore, and the surrounding Umbrian countryside is very beautiful. In August, it was hot, but Casa Rosa provides some relief from the heat, being up in the hills and catching what breeze there is.
It was perhaps our most relaxing holiday ever, partly because we stayed 2 weeks at the one location, which made it feel very spacious, but also because of the quiet beauty of the place itself.
