Further details indoors

One of our main objectives while renovating Casa Lilla was to respect the architectural period of the house and we have kept and restored all the original fittings (where possible) and brought this wonderful old house back to life. The apartment bedrooms on the ground have the original wooden beamed ceilings, and all the doors and windows are original and have been restored.

Further details outdoors

PLEASE NOTE: THE POOL IS THE COMMUNE POOL COMPLEX AND IS A 10 MIN WALK FROM CASA LILLA. The pool complex has 2 large swimming pools and a children's pool with lots of lounge space, a bar/cafe, and is set in lovely grounds which are well maintained. The pool is open from June to the end of August and there is an entrance fee. There are also tennis courts, football pitches, basketball courts, etc beside the pool complex.

The Umbria region

The "Green Heart of Italy"

In tourist literature one sometimes sees Umbria called "il cuor verde d'Italia" (the green heart of Italy). The phrase, taken from a poem by Giosuè Carducci, the subject of which is not Umbria but rather a specific small place in it, the source of the Clitunno river, treasured since Antiquity as a beauty spot, is to a certain extent appropriate since the modern administrative region is the only one to have neither a coast nor a border with a foreign country, and, except for August and September, is notoriously green. Umbria is a region of central Italy, bordered by Tuscany to the west, La Marche to the east and Lazio to the south. The region covers 8,456 km² and has a population of 834,000 (2003 census).

The region is named for the Umbri tribe, who settled in the region in the 6th century BC. Their language was Umbrian, a relative of Latin. The modern region of Umbria, however, is essentially a different region of Italy than that bearing the same name in Roman, which extended through most of what is now the northern Marche, to Ravenna, but excluded the west bank of the Tiber.

Cooking in Umbria (One of our most favourite pastimes) is varied: meat, fish, cereals, vegetables, spices, and herbs are equally important. Umbrian cooking is described as rustic or poor, We think a better description is a clever use of fantastic seasonal produce to produce wonderful dishes.

Acquasparta

Acquasparta, a small town of population approx. 5000 is situated very close to the better known towns of Todi, Spoleto, and Terni, to name but a few. It is a vibrant, alive town with a good range of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and even a pub, it also a good mix of age groups and families. When you drive into Acquasparta you will arrive at the "centro storica", the medieval town centre. The main piazza is Piazza Federico Cesi, which has just (August 2006) been fully restored. Casa Lilla is built onto the outside of the old town walls and you can walk through the picturesque back streets of the town to Casa Lilla.

Inside the old part of town, the principal building of note is the Renaissance style Palazzo Cesi, started in 1564 and completed in 1579 by the architect Giovanni Domenico Bianchi. The Palazzo is owned by the University of Perugia.

"A return visit, which shan't be the last"

We stayed here last year, and wouldn't consider visiting Italy without returning. Everything about the apartment and the hosts is perfect. We visited during a period when the town was having a … More
