About this listing
Casa Rosa (Assisi) self catering apartments with breathtaking views of the Park of Mount Subasio, immersed in the tranquility and beauty of the Umbrian countryside. Apartment Giotto sleeps 5 and offers spacious outdoor terraced areas and a pool.
Spectacular lap pool, shared by the apartments, is located a little way above the house in a marvellously tranquil position with panoramic views over the national park. 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. Jennifer Holmes will provide you with many itineries and maps.
"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)
We had eight very beautiful and very relaxing days in Casa Rosa and enjoyed every moment. The location is great middle of nowhere, Assisi still available and near by. Particularly for us as a family with three children the place was just perfect. We spent a lot of time at the pool, have made little hikes and visited small towns nearby like Spello and Montefalco. The apartments are comfortable and lovingly furnished. (Washing machine, WiFi, well equipped kitchen & plenty of room) Everything has been designed with great attention to detail. The pool is on a small hill, so that always blows a light breeze. Very pleasant on hot days. Overall it has a high degree of privacy. The other guests were all very friendly, quiet and nice and there was a family atmosphere.
Ella, the hostess was extremely nice and helpful. The magic of the location is certainly connected with the charming hosts. Overall, it was by far the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken with our kids. The time seems to stand still at this location. Just a perfect place! Thank you dear Ella & Allesandro for the friendly and warm welcome! We'll definitely be back! Bettina, Stephan, Clara, Emma & Frieda
