Casa Rosa is a special place. I can't help but echo the reviews of the other guests: it is peace personified but just a short drive from Assisi; it is a natural paradise but has everything you need to hand; it is a home from home in its hand-painted furnishings and decoration; and above all, it is run by the loveliest couple – Ella and Alessandro.
From the cherries and jam we enjoyed courtesy of Ella, to the delicious meals prepared by Alessandro, we were just enamoured with their generosity and kindness. As for the surroundings, it is nothing short of breathtaking – and I've seen many a picturesque landscape! The house was so welcoming, replete with touches like wild flowers.
To wake each morning to sunshine over the mountains, and end each evening watching fireflies dance in the dark, was really quite spectacular. The sound of birdsong and bats, or the breeze playing in the trees, is the extent of the noise pollution from the balcony! And the days spent by the pool, walking to the 'Secret Place' (I won't spoil the surprise!), or simply the smell of lavender washing over you: there really aren't words.
As for Assisi, it's an incredible town – and there's so much more to experience in Umbria generally. For some true R&R, I am truly convinced there is nowhere better.More
