"What a beautiful place in an incredibly beautiful setting."
Jane & Jonathan Richardson + family, East Sussex *
Casa delle Rose is a beautifully restored 17th century farmhouse with a self-contained vacation apartment on the ground floor in the heart of green Umbria. Set amidst olive groves and vineyards near the picturesque village of Canalicchio, Casa delle Rose offers spectacular views over the gentle Umbrian hills with sunsets and starry nights that have to be seen to be believed. Traditional chestnut beams, handmade terracotta floors, fireplaces and whitewashed walls all add to the glorious ambience and the virtually chlorine-free 5x10m pool offers cool respite from hot summer days. Major cultural centres like Assisi, Perugia and Todi are half an hour away and Rome and Florence less than two hours. It takes a mere 10 minutes to reach the ceramics capital of Deruta. The nearest restaurant is within walking distance.
