This restored 300-year-old cottage in Montemelino, near Perugia, sleeps 6 and has a pool, gardens filled with olive trees and views over rolling countryside and pretty stone villages. It’s a tranquil spot for a family holiday and is well equipped with items for small children and babies, from toys and armbands to strollers and baby carriers. It’s a rustic retreat with red brick floors, wrought iron beds and wood beamed ceilings, and is surrounded by countryside. Take a ten minute walk to the nearest village for authentic Italian food; wander in the woods and meet the local wildlife or take daytrips to Perugia, southern Tuscany and the hilltop towns of Umbria.

I grew up in Australia but came over to Italy to learn Italian - little did I realise then how useful it would be! But I met Lino, we got married, bought a big farmhouse and 24 years on, we've really put down roots. We do love to travel, though, and dream of having a long holiday in Australia some day but in the meantime, we enjoy visiting other parts of Europe. Isabella (our 7 year-old daughter) particularly loves the seaside. But she also enjoys hanging out at home, playing in the garden and pool and meeting other kids who come to stay.

We were pleased to stay at Casetta Rosa. The hosts live on site and were lovely people. Their daughter Isabella and our little one hit it off and played well together. They even had us over for home made pizza dinner. The little house is well kept, clean and has all the kitchen necessities you need to buy local ingredients and prepare a lovely meal. There are outdoor areas to enjoy, a pool and beautiful views. The furnishings are rustic and typical for the area. Great shower pressure, clean sheets and towels provided and even lovely fresh fruit at arrival. The spiral stairs to the upstairs bedrooms is a bit tight and could pose an issue for small children but they have a safety gate I believe at the top. It was fine for us and rather than carry bags up the small stairs, we used the downstairs room as our 'dressing' area. There was plenty of space for all we needed in this house for a family of 3. We would recommend this to other travelers.

The owners were very very friendly and helpful! We were surprised with their invitation for dinner when we arrived. Whenever we had questions they were there for us. The house was big, clean and had spectacular view; it actually looked better than in the pictures. Inside, we had everything we needed. The location is fine too; a car is necessary but it's possible to make many beautiful trips within a short drive. We visited and enjoyed places like Perugia, lake Trasimeno, Assisi or waterfalls. Some other days we were relaxing at the big and clean pool. We would love to stay there again.
