The Farm is surrounded by woods and farmland, located on a spur the farm has panoramic views over the National Park of Mount Subasio. The hills and forest hide martens, porcupine and wild boar, all of which have been seen on the farm. The wealth of bird life includes buzzards, goldfinches and hoopoes. In spring the meadows, fields and verges abound in wild flowers, among them poppies, cyclamen, wild gladioli, and many types of orchid. From May to July fireflies dance in the night, and through the summer the Farm is home to thirty varieties of butterfly. Along the river are waterfalls and natural pools where one can bathe in the summer. The hills, woods and valleys offer many possible routes for walking.

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

ASSISI, the nearest town, was the home of St. Francis and his female counterpart, St. Clare. For seven centuries now, Assisi has been a focus for pilgrimage, with the area 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.

The town’s calendar revolves around traditional festivals: the commemoration and celebration of Holy Week ingiotto Easter, the Calendimaggio, a three-day recreation of the medieval celebration of Spring when much of Assisi dons medieval dress for street theatre, music, dance, and a series of contests between upper and the lower parts of the town; and the Feast of St. Francis in early October.

Assisi

The great Basilica of St. Francis, or San Francesco di Assisi, was built over Francis’ tomb, and contains frescoes by Cimabue, Lorenzetti, Martini and Giotto. The latter who heralded the Renaissance in Italian painting. The Upper Basilica was damaged by tremors in 1997, but has now been fully restored and is open once again to the public.

For modern pilgrims, Assisi offers cafes, restaurants, shops and a swimming pool. Larger supermarkets can be found in the neighbouring towns of S. Maria degli Angeli and Bastia. Paragliders fly from the top of Mount Subasio.

umbriamapUmbria, known as the ‘Green Heart of Italy’, lies between Tuscany, Le Marche and Lazio. The region’s forests and farms are famous for their truffles, olive oil and pork; the town of Deruta for its painted earthenware; Orvieto and Torgiano for their wine.

Within a 60 km (or 40 mile) radius of Casa Rosa are the ancient hill towns of Gubbio, Spello, Cortona, Spoleto, Orvieto and Todi, each with its medieval centre. Perugia, the region’s capital, is 25 km (or 15 miles) away, a stylish university city with striking medieval architecture, important Etruscan remains and major works of art.
