The Umbria region

Holidaymakers seeking culture will delight in Casa delle Rose's unbeatable location in the centre of Umbria - "The green heart of Italy' - a region of stunning beauty dotted with medieval walled towns steeped in history.


Umbria's capital and famous university town Perugia is 30 minutes away, splendid Todi only 20 and St Francis' Assisi about 40. There are many small towns worth a day trip: Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello or the gourmet mecca of Norcia, to name but a few. Between the months of May and October, Umbria is brimming with local festivals. Highlights are Spoleto's world-renowned celebration of the arts "Festival dei Due Mondi", Perugia's mouth-watering chocolate festival in honour of the "Bacio" and Gubbio's spectacular Candle Race.The quiet country lanes around the house are perfect for walking and mountain biking to work up an appetite for lunch at a colourful local trattoria and Alvaro, a friend of the owners who manages a large country estate nearby, can arrange for horse-riding, truffle-hunting (in season), Italian cookery classes, fishing, tennis and archery. There are two excellent restaurants within walking distance of the house.

"Perfect anti-stress solution and for relaxation."

The apartment has all the comfort needed. It is a typical Italian country house set in the middle of olive trees with a dreaming view. First thing in the morning was to go and get figs from the tree and watch the sunrise covering the hills around. Magical and so relaxing. The garden and the swimming pool had many different areas for sitting and relaxing. Thanks to Sophie and Michael to have shared their paradise with us. Even The Cat (this is their cat name) was so friendly!

"A jewel in the crown of Italy"

3 good reasons for going : 1. The Sophie and Michael make you feel at home without being intrusive. They have paid attention to the small details in the villa. You might even get some home grown produce in season ! 2. Umbria is one of the most undiscovered regions in Italy, with few British tourists and very little english herd. Within 30m of the villa, there are many little gems to visit, including Assisi, Todi and Spello. 3. Il Fiaschetto is a rtue iItalian restaurant and pizzarie, which is frequented most;y by loclas and rarely by foreigners. The food and value for money are excellent, and the service is superb, especially Donica and Marta. If there wasn't so much more to see on this planet, I would holiday there every year !
