The pool is bordered along one side by lavender, local herbs and a large cherry tree; on the other side is a wide terrace paved in local stone with sun-beds and deck chairs for lounging and sunbathing, here there is also a barbecue and gazebo. A shower is built in to the stone wall at one end of the terrace. The formal gardens have terraces, patios and outdoor furniture. There is a barbecue and a traditional bread/pizza oven. This is an ideal place for relaxaton, peace and to get a way from it all. From Casa Rosa it is possible to take walks within the national park of Mount Subasio.

"Rest and relaxation - our fifth year at Casa Rosa and each time it seems like coming home! Just so beautiful and peaceful." (from the guest book)
EACH APARTMENT 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. Casa Rosa's position, over 450 m. (1500 ft) in the hills, means that in summer it is generally cooler than most of the rest of Italy. Towels and bed-linen are provided and a child's cot is available if required. There is a telephone which guests can use.

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.
"This must be one of the most beautiful and tranquil places in the world. We have enjoyed every day, from the late arrival the first night when the ginger cat gave us such a warm welcome, to the glimpses of wild boar, flowers etc..." (from the guest book)
