About Patricia Dugdale
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
Why Patricia Dugdale chose Collazzone
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Lovely private villa
We’ve had a lovely couple of weeks at Il Vigneto which was ideal for us (family of four - teenage daughters). The house, garden and pool had everything we wanted/needed and more! The views from the terrace and pool are wonderful and the surrounding countryside is beautiful (we loved Spello and Orvieto in particular - Todi less so because of all the cars in the centro). We ate in several of the local restaurants - all good - but enjoyed La Casella the most where we always had a friendly welcome and good food. Eating out on the terrace at Il Vigneto takes some beating though - evening thunderstorms permitting (when the sun room came in handy!). Thank you Lela for being so helpful when needed and to Keith and Patricia for sharing your lovely house.
Fantastic Views !
We stayed here for 2 weeks in August and loved the location, especially the fabulous views from the terrace and pool area. There were 2 adults and 3 teenagers and the house felt spacious enough for us all. I particularly loved the large bedroom and bathroom downstairs with doors opening into the garden. The teenagers loved the pool and couldn’t stop remarking on the speed of the Wi-fi !
We travelled into Rome on 2 separate days parking in an underground car park right by the Bologna metro station. It only cost €11 for the whole day and you also miss the ZTL congestion zones. The metro costs just €1,50 each for a single trip so well worth it. We also spent a day in Florence, again parking just outside the ZTL congestion zones.
We used the EMI supermarkets in Bastardo and Todi which have everything you need and both are about a 15 minute car drive away.
Lela and Duncan were really helpful, meeting us on our arrival and showing us around and came to say goodbye on our last day. Lela was always just a phone all away if we needed anything.
Wonderful holiday !
Loved our time in Umbria and Il Vigneto was the perfect location and so very very quiet. We didn't want to leave.
Fantastic Italian holiday!
Perfect location for exploring Umbria. Very peaceful with a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. Villa was well equipped and we were very well looked after by Lela and Duncan.
A great house in a lovely location
We spent a week here in late July, early August, and it was fantastic! It was the first time we had been to Umbria, and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location.
The house is located down a hill from San Terenziano, a really nice village, and was a perfect size for the four of us. This was the first stop on a 4 week tour around Italy, and we generally like to stay put for the first week, to relax and get us in the holiday mood. This was fortunate, as we had temperatures in the 40s for a few days. Thankfully, the pool came into its own and was well used, and the location of the house meant that often there was a breeze to take the edge off the heat.
We walked up to the village a couple of times in the evening, for dinner and drinks, but other than a trip to Todi we made use of the house and pool. The terrace in the evening was a particularly nice place to bbq and eat. The house is every bit as nice as the photos suggest, and I would highly recommend it."
Gorgeous beautifully decorated house in stunning surroundings in the Umbrian countryside
Lovely house - beautifully and tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Attention to detail everywhere from the welcome box to the wonderful book of places to visit. Stunning gardens and the view is to be seen to be believed. We sat looking over that view every night. I will miss the terrace and the pool most. Just beautiful.
Il Vigneto is near Collazzone and close to Todi, ideally situated in the heart of Umbria. Its hillside location makes for a perfect relaxing retreat and a great base for visiting the historic sites of the region The nearest village, San Terenziano, about 3 kms. away, has a good range of shops and excellent local restaurants. Sightseeing opportunities are endless, with many beautiful hillside towns less than an hour away. Assisi is a World Heritage Site, famous for the Giotto frescoes and its narrow cobbled streets. Perugia is an elegant city with a lovely historic centre and great shopping. The smaller towns of Bevagna, Spello, Spoleto and Montefalco are definitely worth a visit. Todi, with its medieval piazza and lovely old streets is only 20 minutes drive away. Music and culture are everywhere. Wine lovers can visit the local vineyards to taste the Montefalco and Sagrantino wines. An excellent train service makes it easy to visit both Florence and Rome for the day. Perugia is the nearest airport, 45 minutes away.
