I very much enjoy the countryside and Umbria has an unspoiled country environemnt whilst offering the opportunity for cultural sightseeing. it is also close to Rome and Florence which makes them easily reachable.
I enjoy the beauty of silence, great local food and, most often, I enjoy the company of friends visiting. The house is perfect for groups of friends which want to share living togheter but at the same time preserving their own privacy. The heart of it all is the big professional kitchen which makes cooking a great experience for the entire company.
Wow, honestly one of the most amazing Airbnb experiences I've ever had; everything from the initial booking, to the ease of communication, the exquisite villa and the delicious food made this stay absolutely unforgettable. A true gem in the heart of Umbria, we can't wait to return!
While we only used three bedrooms all six were well appointed. Kitchen was great to cook in- end of season a few pans were past there due date- were promptly replaced when the issue was raised. Pool very nice but without heating a little chilly in mid September. Property was secluded but only a few minutes to Todi and great grocery shopping in Ponteroi. Overall, we and are guests had a great vacation. Would highly recommend- great value.
The Villa was perfect for our needs. We managed to fill all the rooms most of the three weeks with friends and family and everyone expressed great delight with their stay. The location near Todi was very convenient for exploring the beautiful hilltop towns of Umbria and nearby Tuscany. Giuliana, the housekeeper was most attentive to every detail and she cooked for us three times to the delight of everyone. The two Lauras made sure that the Villa was in tip-top shape.
We would not hesitate in recommending LaCasaRossa for large family or friends gathering.
The description of the house is accurate and you won't be disappointed. Overall we had a fantastic time and I would highly recommend LacasaRossa
This is an outstanding vacation property in a idyllic location. The little mountain town of Todi is so charming and easy to navigate. The whole area is filled with wonderful towns for exploring. Perfect villa for large family or several couples. It has air conditioning , but weather was such that we never used it. The on site staff Jens and Guiliana so helpful and welcoming, and were there for us for every need at a moments notice. We visited in early June and the gardens were in full bloom with hydrangeas, roses, agapanthus and lavender .Mr. Giannelli has done a magnificent job and is gracious to share it with us. M.

This is a grand house, with the best showers in all of Europe. The view is amazing, of course, and all of the bedrooms are very nice. We love to cook, and the kitchen is a pleasure. We made use of Mrs. Giuliana to come for two hours to clean up for us in the evening--well worth the money--the fun of cooking, without the bother of cleaning up.
It is fun as you drive around the Todi area to be able to see "your" red house from many places.
There are two driveways, but the one that comes from the west and leads to the kitchen is the best for unloading food and luggage. But there is room for only one car there, so use it sparingly.
Walking along the road below the property is very nice--just remember you have to climb back up!
We went to a restaurant called Fiorefiore on the other side of Todi for our 'farewell lunch" on the Friday. They did good job for us 11 people, and we sat outside on the shady side of the building.
I would be happy to answer any questions from potential renters. We already have told friends about LacasaRossa and they are thinking of getting a party together for next year.
We chose the villa after doing a lot of research online. The website, nice as it is, does not do the property justice.
The house is perched on a hill with sweeping views. It's huge -- six bedrooms, all of them very large with their own large bathrooms. We were three families (10 people) and stayed here for two weeks. For two of those nights we were visited by friends who themselves had two three-year old twins. Even so, we had plenty of room. The bedrooms and bathrooms you see on the website are representative of all six -- every room feels like a master bedroom. The interior is unusually modern for this type of property, which was part of the attraction for us. Everything is first-rate. The showers were great, the kitchen is of professional quality (four sinks?!), and the internet works well.
The pool is very large and we spent hours swimming each day. We needed a pool that was either fenced in or somewhat removed from the house because we had toddlers in our group. This pool is twenty yards or so behind the house, up a curved walkway, which met our needs. The website can't fully capture the beauty of the outdoor grounds. The view from the pool and the many different parts of the house is stunning.
A big part of the stay was the excellent service from Giampaolo, the owner, and his team-- Jens, the concierge, and Giuliana and Laura, the two housekeepers. The villa comes with three hours of housekeeping a day during the week, which wasn't by any means a must on our list, but was really nice to have. For an additional fee, Giuliana will cook you an Italian meal. She did this for us four times during our stay and the dinners were all fantastic, often featuring vegetables from the villa's garden. She enthusiastically taught our boys how to make pasta, which was a lot of fun. We were delayed on our arrival into Da Vinci airport, and Giuliana and Jens met us at the villa at 2 in the morning to check us in! Above and beyond the call of duty, but they greeted us warmly, like it was 2 in the afternoon.
The location is ideal for exploring Umbria, with many fascinating towns within a 45 minute drive - Orvieto, Peruggia, Narni, Spoleto - too many to see them all. We really enjoyed nearby Todi. It's a 5 km walk or you can walk into town in about 25 minutes. Many in our group did the walk each day, but note that the last part is fairly steep.
All in all an ideal trip. We would happily come back and hope to sometime soon.
