Description & Details of Casa Rosabianca
A beautiful house in The Monti Sibilini National Park

Situated at 600 metres in a quiet village location with stupendous views over the Valnerina valley, Casa Rosabianca offers a unique experience in Italy. A blend of gentle rural life with all the comforts of home and a beautiful swimming pool (free use for guests) a minutes stroll away. Shops, bars and restaurants are within 10 minutes walk.
Why not enjoy some of the best scenery in Umbria from your own balcony or whilst sitting outside on the pretty, flower filled piazza. Here our guests can dine ?al fresco' as the sun sets over the little hill town of Castelvecchio in the distance. A truly magical sight.
It`s easy to visualise the square as it was in the 13th century when the Preci surgeons conducted their business in the palazzi still in evidence around the town. They were pioneers in their field developing skills that enabled their descendents to perform operations for the nobility of Europe including Queen Elizabeth 1st of England in the 16th century.
Preci is ideally situated for exploring The Monti Sibillini National Park which is rich in wild life including wolves and golden eagles. Not to be missed is the famous Piano Grande, a tapestry of wild flowers and rare orchids in the Spring and early Summer. Ancient towns such as Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia or even Rome are an easy day trip.

Activities & Atractions for Casa Rosabianca
For those who want to venture away from the idyllic scenery and tranquillity in and around Preci there are many places to see and activities for both adults and children within a short drive of us.

Culture fans should take time to visit the ancient historic towns of Spoleto (40 minutes), Assisi (60 minutes) and Perugia (75 minutes). Assisi is the birthplace of St Francis and his body lies in the crypt of the 13th century church. The basilica is richly decorated with frescos painted by Giotto. Spoleto and Perugia both rich in art and Etruscan, Roman and Medieval buildings host world famous music and dance festivals every summer.

Nature Lovers will be impressed by the beauty and diversity of the National Park. It encompasses the Sibylline Mountains and provides a wealth of plant and animal life with over 1,800 plant species. There are over 127 species of orchids alone in the park with many other rare species of mountain plants and flowers.
There are over 50 species of animals (including wolves, wild cat, lynx and wild boar), more than 50 species of birds (including the golden eagle, peregrine falcon, buzzard, sparrow hawk, eagle owl, wall creeper and mountain swallow) and over 700 species of butterfly.

Food lovers must sample local specialities like black and the even rarer white truffle, the most piquant pecorino made from sheep's cheese, prosciutto and salami made from pork or local wild boar and the famous Castelluccio lentils form the Piano Grande. Norcia (20 minutes, birthplace of St Benedict) is full of beautiful shops and restaurants dedicated to our local products but of special note is the /"Il Castoro/" Restaurant in Preci (walking distance of Casa Rosabianca and featured in the slow food guide). A full list of recommended local restaurants is available from us and for those who want to learn to prepare our typical dishes, courses from one day to a week can be arranged.
Wine and olive oil tours of the vineyards and olive oil mills at Montefalco, Trevi and Torgiano are in easy reach. Wines to sample include Sagrantino, Montefalco Rosso and Villa Fidelia and the olive oil is some of the best organic oil in the world.

For sports and outdoor enthusiasts there are great opportunities for walking, mountain biking, road cycling, white water rafting, horse riding, rock climbing, paragliding, canyoning and winter skiing.
We can help with arrangements for all these activities and also provide maps and guides for independent touring, walking and cycling.

Children's activities include: River rafting on the Nera River, trekking with donkeys, riding the chairlift up to the summit of Monte Bove at Frontingnano (30 minutes drive, operates every day during August) or pony riding on The Piano Grande. All these activities are suitable for children from age 5.

Skiing
We are 30 minutes drive from Frontignano, (1340m - 1950m), with a total of 14km of pistes of varying difficulty, 5 ski lifts, 4 chair lifts and usually no queues! There are several good restaurants and snack bars, ski hire, ski school, nursery slopes, a snow park and indoor skating rink. Day ski passes cost 15-22 euro depending on the season, which runs from December to March. Discounts are available for a few days to a week.

Catered Ski Breaks
These are offered for up to 4 guests with breakfast and dinner, simple or gourmet, (your choice). Your party has the use of 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a private lounge with log fire and TV (dvd/cd player). For eating out there are several restaurants and bars to choose from within 10 minutes walk and many others at historic Norcia (20 minutes drive).
Fun cookery sessions with a qualified chef are available for non-skiers OR how about a trip to Rome, Assisi or Perugia? Please contact us for more details and winter rates.
