Farm holiday Casale Rodi is located about 4 kilometers far from the old medieval town of Gubbio. The farm holiday is sorrounded by nature in the countryside of Gubbio. The farm holiday is composed of three finely restored structures with stone and wood that magnifies the farm holiday's rustic style.
The name “Casale Rodi” come from the word “Rodi”, the name by wich the place was identified in the past. The former landowner, after a holiday in Greece, wanted to identify his farmhouses with the names of the Greek Islands he loved. His favorite island was Rodi, and that's why “Rodi” is the name of the farm holiday.
The farm holiday strategic position allows you to enjoy beautiful relaxing days sorrounded by nature, but at the same time you can also get the old town of Gubbio (and the others important cities as like as Assisi and Perugia) by car in a few minutes.
Our guests can enjoy guided mountain-bike excursions and beautiful walks. They will have the opportunity to play football, ping-pong and bowls, and it is also possible to have a barbecue in designated areas. In our farm holiday you can also accomodate animals, because we love them!
