A little patch of Paradise
By Jonathan Glover on 27-Jul-2019
We arrived just ahead of a scarily powerful thunderstorm, and spent our first night listening to the rain crashing onto the tiles and counting the split seconds from lightning flash to thunder's roar . . . . Come the morning it seemed the sun had had enough and took back control, welcoming us to the sheer delight that is Casa Rosa on a hot July day. We started off intending to visit all the local places of interest, but as each day passed we slipped into endless patterns of indulgent indolence broken only by yet another swim. Mea culpa.
We have no stories of wonderful meals taken in picturesque restaurants or trips to fabulous Urbino that thrilled our peasant souls, nor any useful tips for shopping in local markets for hidden bargains. Mark you, we did buy a pretty summer frock, a scrap of white and dazzling grey cotton, from an entrepreneurial oriental couple in the market in Fossombrone - not sure if that counts?
We came for sunshine, silence and stillness all for ourselves in the stunning setting of this little patch of Paradise - and kept smiling!
Wonderful and Peaceful
By Keith on 13-Jul-2019
We’ve just returned from this lovely house. We wanted peace and isolation and we got it here. We love visiting small quiet villages and exploring larger towns without driving all day and we got it here. Our daily exercise from the ping pong or swimming, our relaxation on the terrace or by the pool, entertainment from the extensive video library, the notes and encouragement for the surrounding attractions and restaurants all contributed us to, for the first time ever, rebook for next year.
And the owners have been very helpful to ensure we knew the best way to get the most out of our stay.
Excellent Old Farmhouse with Stunning Views
By CH on 21-Oct-2016
A beautifully maintained and appointed property. The views were an absolute delight. Lovely pool which we used every day, even in October!
Very well equipped kitchen that was put to use with new Italian inspiration.
An ideal location away from it all. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely time at Casa Rosa and were absolutely delighted to be stay in such a beautiful house in such a beautiful location. Our enjoyment of the house and area was greatly enhanced by the wealth of detailed information that was provided by the owners about local attractions, where to eat, scenic drives to take, etc. The thought that has clearly been put into making the guest's stay as relaxing, easy and enjoyable as possible was hugely appreciated.

Wir verbrachten zwei sehr erholsame Wochen in Casa Rosa. Es ist ein typisches Landhaus in herrlicher Landschaft. Es gibt Ruhe und Natur pur, Vogelgezwitscher, Glühwürmchen, Eidechsen, tolle Sonnenuntergänge und je nach Tageszeit und Wetterlage immer wieder neue Ausblicke. Ein Fernglas ist vorhanden. Von der Terrasse hat man einen phantastischen Blick und wem es zu heiß wird, nutzt den grossen Pool (10 x 5 m) zum Erfrischen. In Fossombrone, ca. 20 Min. mit dem Auto, findet man alle Geschäfte einschl. Supermärkte. Der Kontakt mit den Eigentümern und der Verwalterin vor Ort war nett und unkompliziert. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und haben das Fernsehen in die Landschaft genossen. Birgit & Michael
Beautiful, Isolated villa
By AST on 31-Aug-2015
We had a wonderful time at Casa Rosa. The image of the sun setting behind the mountains while sipping a glass of prosecco on the veranda will live long in the memory. The nearest neighbours are miles away. There is a great pool and a table tennis table to keep the kids entertained. There is lots to see and do nearby and great restaurants. The house is well equipped. The only slight downside is the lack of a second bathroom.
Authentisches Traumhaus auf dem Lande
By PF on 22-Aug-2015
Casa Rosa ist eine wunderbare Gelegenheit, die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Von der ersten Minute an fühlten wir uns wie zu Hause. Die Einrichtung ist individuell und geschmackvoll und es fehlt an nichts. Die Terrasse bietet einen wunderbaren Weitblick und lädt zu langen Abenden mit atemberaubenden Sonnenuntergängen ein. Der schöne Pool sorgt für eine wohltuende Erfrischung an heissen Tagen. Wir, eine sechsköpfige Familie, haben zwei fantastische Wochen in diesem authentischen Traumhaus auf dem Lande erleben dürfen, für uns war es der perfekte Urlaub! Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen!
