NEW STONE HOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL IN BEAUTIFUL PANORAMIC HILLSIDE SETTING

Collazzone House Rental Photos and Description

Traditionally built house finished to a luxury standard in a private setting

Il Vigneto is a traditionally-built new stone house in the heart of Umbria, in an old vineyard, a private and romantic hillside setting with spectacular views from the house and pool towards an unchanging Italian landscape. The interior combines traditional terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and travertine tiles with contemporary kitchen and shower rooms. The light and airy living room with air-conditioning for summer and a wood burning stove opens onto a spacious terrace with panoramic views over the landscape, a perfect setting for al fresco dining. The house has broadband, TV/ DVD/CD, iPod dock and a selection of games, books, CDs and DVDs. The kitchen is fully-equipped with oven, hob, refrigerator and dishwasher. The washing machine and fridge/freezer are in the lower floor utility room. The separate conservatory/ dining room is perfect for late night dining in Spring/Autumn. There are two large double bedrooms, one twin-bedded room and two travertine-tiled bathrooms with shower

Il Vigneto's location in the centre of Italy makes it accessible from a number of airports.The nearest are Perugia at 40 kilometres, approximately 45 minutes drive, and Rome (Ciampino or Fiumicino) at 150 kilometres, approximately 2 hours drive. Ancona and Bologna are also within 2 hours' drive and Pisa within 2 1/2 hours. Perugia airport is delightfully small. It takes minutes to pass through customs and collect your baggage. All the major car hire firms have outlets at the airports.

There is a pullman (airport bus) service between Pian di Porto (20 minutes from the house near Todi) and Rome. This bus goes to Rome Tiburtina station (a few metro stops from the Colosseum) in 1 1/2 hours, and on to Rome Fiumicino airport, and is also a useful service for visitors who might want to come during your stay.

From Perugia and Terni fast trains to Florence and Rome make both cities ideal for day visits without the hassle of driving. Both Florence and Siena are also easily reached by road

There is an amazing variety of culture on offer throughout the summer months. Perugia and Spoleto host world famous jazz and classical music festivals whilst every local town hosts its own festa with days of street parties, open air eating and drinking, and dancing. The nearby historic towns are delightful places to stroll through and soak up the sun and atmosphere of traditional Italy. Todi, only 20 minutes away, has been described as the most beautiful town in Italy.

For art lovers there is the world heritage site, Assisi, with its famous Giotto frescoes, paintings by Perugino and others in Perugia and Spello and frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli in Montefalco.

Nearby vineyards offer plenty of opportunities for wine tasting. Montefalco Rosso and sagrantino, as well as the local white wine,grecchetto, are the best-known local wines.

You can enjoy some fantastic hillside walks, hire a bike to explore the beautiful countryside, or simply while away the day by the pool and then pop into our friendly local agriturismo within walking distance of the house, for a delicious and inexpensive traditional Italian meal. Alternatively you can drive to our nearest town Todi, 20 minutes away, for dinner or a drink

There are some great restaurants in the area catering for all tastes and budgets. As well as the agriturismo at the top of the hill, there are restaurants and pizzerias in the local area to meet all tastes and the information pack in the house will tell you all about our favourite restaurants and vineyards to visit. A welcome pack, including wine and food, will be available on arrival and you will be greeted at the house by Karen, our English and Italian speaking local manager.

We live in a village near Oxford. I am retired and my husband is a self employed management consultant, having worked previously in recruitment for a large global financial services company.

Patricia Dugdale purchased this house in 2008

We looked for 5 years for house in Italy, mainly in Umbria because it is beautiful and unspoiled. We love Italian art and architecture, the food, wine and climate. We bought the house because it was in a beautiful location, private and tranquil, new but traditionally finished.

We love the view from our terrace, an unbroken view across the valley to the distant hills. We also like the layout of the house, with one of the bedrooms and bathrooms on the lower floor, giving additional privacy for us and our guests. We enjoy the garden too, now that we have planted it with Mediterranean plants and flowers.

Under the Umbrian Sun

  • 5 of 5
We just spent three wonderful sun filled weeks at Il Vigneto. The home was perfect! Karen met us when we arrived and was very helpful. The house was clean and well maintained. The floor plan is great. The views of the hillsides were beautiful. Patricia has a wonderful binder with restaurant and travel recommendations as well as a great collection of travel books. We enjoyed dining on the patio as well as the solarium. We loved sitting by the pool at the end of the day.
Make sure you have dinner at La Cassella at the top of the road. They even offer cooking classes. We enjoyed wine tasting in nearby Montefalco. We took the day off from driving and traveled by train from Todi to Perguia. It is quick and convenient.
I hated to see our vacation come to an end. This is a great holiday location. We hope to return again.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VIEWS EVER SEEN

  • 5 of 5
Althought the pictures of this house were very beautiful, in real life this house is a heaven on earth. The views of the house are perfect! We were there in the beginning of May, so the swimmingpoolwater was very very cold, but this did not stop our children from jumping in. The house has everything we wished we would have and more. Karen, the house manager, was more than friendly and the fact that there was food and drinks for us, because we arrived on a Saturday, was a very nice surprise.
Our daughter felt like a princess in the romantic blue room.
Thanks Pat for your house! We'll meet again!

Wonderful Stay at Il Vigneto

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Il Vigneto the week of October 4th with my wife, son (3 month old) and parents visiting from the US. The villa is set up nicely so that couples / families can stay together but have separate rooms / bathrooms etc as to not feel on top of each other. The property is well stocked to cook meals at home etc and very clean. The views of the surrounding countryside are magnificent, very peaceful and quiet setting. The owners (Patricia and Keith) were very helpful and informative leading up to our stay...very responsive to emails and providing restaurant and activity recommendations etc. The house manager Karen was also helpful, meeting us upon arrival, giving us a tour etc and booking reservations for us.

The location is good for access to all city/towns wtihin Umbria. We visited Montefalco, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto and Castiglione del Lago - all within 30-60 minute drive. San Terenziano and Grutti are two small villages/towns within 5 minutes from the villa which had a small grocery store for essentials, a pharmarcy and a couple of restaurants.

A couple of suggestions - as previously mentioned by guests, the gravel road leading to the villa is in need of a fix. Under normal weather conditions, the road would have been a minor nuisance (bumpy etc). However, it rained just about every day during our stay and at times made the gravel road quite muddy/difficult to drive up. Patricia emailed with her concern during our stay, which was appreciated. Hopefully the gravel road can be replaced/repaired soon! Also, some additional tea towels in the kitchen would be nice and some bins to keep inside the kitchen to separate the rubbish from the recyclable items given the strict rules.

**Highly recommend Il Vigneto!

Owner's Response: Our guests love the setting and the layout of the house, with bedrooms and bathrooms on two floors, which is perfect for giving two couples or an extended family a degree of privacy. The house is very peaceful and has wonderful private views because, like most holiday homes in our area, it is not situated on a main road, but on a small gravel road. We have driven our Audi up and down our hill for five years, so we are used to our small rural road and have never had a problem, even on the odd occasions when it has rained heavily. The road is maintained by the local Comune which normally re-surfaces it regularly, but following Elliot's comments, we have had the section of the road leading to our house re-surfaced ourselves to make sure that no-one will find it a problem.

Excellent accommodation with lots of home comforts

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing holiday. The view and setting of the villa is fantastic. As I sat by the pool reading my book I had to keep pinching myself that I was sitting in such a beautiful place. I never return to a place twice but I feel the need to return to il Vigneto sometime in the future.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We (my 6 yr old daughter, husband and i) stayed here for two weeks at the end of July and it is just a fantastic place to stay. Delighted with it in every way. Karen who met us when we arrived and was on hand during our stay is one of the nicest, most helpful people we have ever come across. Our daughter loved her to bits. The villa is immaculate and very relaxing. We made full use of the pool - the views from which are beautiful. We also managed to squeeze in much sight seeing during our stay, and the villa is a good base to see the sights of Umbria. Many thanks Patricia for letting us stay in your Umbrian place and you have an amazing housekeeper in Karen. Thoroughly recommend. Manning family xxx

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5
After a weeks stay in Il Vigneto I can say it fully deserves a 5 star rating. Set in a stunning location, the villa is very well equipped and I would say it is amongst the very best holiday vacation I have stayed in. Our children loved the pool, as did their grandparents. The villa is very well located with many historic, medieval hill top towns with easy striking distance. There are many local, regional restaurants close by serving excellent Umbrian food, which reach even higher levels in nearby Todi.

I would not hesitate in either recommending or returning to Il Vigento.
