We had the opportunity to use this Umbrian home as our 1 week respite from our super busy Italian vacation. Upon arrival, we were very pleased at the condition of the house, its amenities, and its location. We were able to enjoy several day trips to local towns, and fixed several dinners in the Italian grill and in the kitchen. We really enjoyed living more like “locals” and embracing all that Umbria has to offer. This is a beautiful, well kept, immaculate home that made our trip to Umbria very special. There is plenty to do in the region, and local grocery stores, markets, restaurants and gas stations. My husband enjoyed the house so much, he’s looking at locations nearby to purchase one of our own! We would rent this lovely home again in a heartbeat! Stayed June 2015  *****

My family spent the most perfect July last summer at La Casetta Rosa. We couldn’t get enough of the views and the sunsets were glorious. The location is perfect for day trips to all the hill towns in Umbria and offers a sense of seclusion and at the same time access to everything you need from groceries to easy access to public transportation. The house was complete with everything we needed to prepare meals. The pool was perfect for relaxing. Sharri was so helpful and provided lots of local knowledge to help us fit right into the Umbrian life. We hope to come back to Umbria again and will look forward to another stay at La Casetta Rosa.   Stayed July 2013     *****

Une maison parfaite ou nous avons passé d excellentes vacances. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants, tout particulièrement la propriétaire qui gère avec soin la maison. Des cadeaux nous attendaient : huile d olive du jardin, confiture maison, délicieux vin de la région etc Une importante documentation est fournie pour nous guider dans les visites. La décoration mêle la beauté de la céramique ombrienne, aux objets chinés ou rapportés des voyages lointains. Tout est propre et plaisir pour le regard. La vue sur les collines ombriennes est splendide, la possibilité de manger dans différents lieux de la maison est très agréable ( sous la pergola, coin barbecue etc ). Une petite table en contrebas, face à la vue, est idéale pour la méditation. La vaisselle est abondante et tout fonctionne. Les enfants ont pu regarder des DVD , jouer dans la piscine . Les villes et villages alentours sont très riches à tout point de vue : artistique , gastronomique, et situés a 30/45 minutes de la maison. De multiples villages médiévaux sont beaucoup plus proches si vous ne souhaitez pas faire de route. Les magasins alimentaires sont à proximité. Bref, nous recommandons cette maison les yeux fermés. Tout y a été pensé pour le confort , le repos, et le plaisir de ses habitants. A refaire +++     Stayed July 2014   *****

Our group of six travelers spent perhaps the best week of our lives at this amazing villa in Umbria. The house was immaculate and our hostess was waiting to greet us when we arrived. Our first evening we sat under the olive trees at the edge of the backyard and watched the sun set across a beautiful valley. The following morning we watched hot-air balloons float down the valley as we ate breakfast under those same olive trees. Each day we drove to nearby hill towns to experience Umbria on our own terms. The hill towns of Assisi, Spello, Spoleto, Montefalco, Deruta, Todi, Castiglione de Lago, and others are all within an easy drive of the villa. It was a joy to cool our selves in the small pool while we sipped wine and snacked on cheese following our daily outings. This was our third trip to Italy and our stay at La Casetta Rosa was our very best experience ever. This place was heaven!  Stayed July 2011 *****

Just a quick note of appreciation and to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your house. We will definitely be back!!!! Just sitting on the terrace w/wine was so relaxing. You made is quite easy with a baby (I know his parents are so appreciative of every effort made.)  Stayed August 2010  *****

La Casetta Rosa embraced us (2 getting-on-up-there couples plus occasional overnight guests) with style and luxury during a splendid fortnight. Even during a couple of quite warm days in June, its design, fans and breezes kept us singing its praises. The only complaint from our number was that we ventured out so much to interesting nearby places that we spent too little time sitting and reading in the several delightful venues of the villa that were perfect for relaxing. The remedy: stay longer than 2 weeks and eat more often at Leone in Collazzone. A good map (Umbria & Marches) was invaluable, as was a manual shift auto. Don’t miss the Tuesday a.m. vegetable and fish market in San Terenziano. We are embarrassed to have accepted so much cheerful, “above-and-beyond” help from the owners that added immeasurable texture to our experience.  Stayed June 2010 *****

We lived in Naples for two years in 2001 and 2002. This past summer we spent a month touring around Italy, returning to our favorite places and visiting the spots we missed when we lived there. La Casetta Rosa was simply wonderful. It was plenty spacious enough for our family of five, the view was breathtaking, the town is quaint, and we were able to get to Pisa, Florence, Assisi, Deruta and a nearby medieval town which happened to be having a medieval fair – all easy day trips from the house. Be aware that this is a typical Italian home, it doesn’t have everything you expect at home in the States but it’s perfectly suitable as part of an Italian experience. My husband was training for a marathon while we were there and he said the vistas while he as out running were some of the most beautiful he’s ever seen. We loved it, we’re hoping our friends are able to visit there this summer and we really hope to be back ourselves! Highly recommended!!   Stayed June 2009  *****
