"Amazing Views"

Casa Cara is equipped with absolutely everything you could want and has a very homely feel. The views are incredible and the pool kept our 3 boys busy and very happy. Perfectly located to visit the many historic towns in Umbria yet only a 5 minute drive to all the amenities in Marsciano. Very friendly and helpful owners who really have provided everything you could need. I can highly recommend this delightful villa.

"We had a truly fantastic holiday at this house up on the hills."

The house Casa Cara was really well kitted out with everything you could possibly need on a holiday from information leaflets to all mod-cons and impecably clean. Views stunning, weather great and truly magical towns to explore.. So so many lovely resturants in and around the area to visit, yet a gem of a house to relax and unwind at the end of a day. Great pool and sunbeds to unwind with lavender bushes wafting our cares and stresses away... So many beautiful towns and villages in and around the area to see and experience the friendleness of the local people... The owners of the house Julie and Fergus O Neill were so helpfull and did provide everything to make our holiday a truly great one, as we were very sad to leave, coming back is a must.. Such a well kept property!!
