We were impressed with the thoughtfulness of the hospitality. The food is all home produced and delicious. They go to a great deal of bother to source wild foods Which included truffles, the delicious hearts of carline thistles and gentians (in this case for liquor). But everything they take from the wild they do sustainabl. Our dogs were made very welcome. The accommodation is immaculate and at the same time suitably rural. All the farm animals are free range and a joy to be with and photograph. I could go on and on about how lovely this place is to stay.

I stayed here while walking the Camino di San Benedetto.
The rooms are very modern and clean with large bathrooms and heating.
I had a fabulous view over the mountains. This is a working farm with Chianina cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, geese, chickens and rabbits.
Mist of the food is from the farm, including the very good prosciutto and other cured pork products and sheep and goats milk cheeses, wonderfully prepared by Piera, with nice touches, such as borage flowers in the salad. The pasta, bread and gnocchi are all made by Piera minutes before the meal, and it’s fascinating to watch it being prepared so effortlessly.
Everyone eats together at a long table and when I was there we were in total about 20 people all of whom were very friendly.
There are wonderful walks in the area all in GPS apps. As well as horse riding in the summer months. They are open all year round and to get here you could fly to Rome or Perugia - and then hire a car, although they would collect you from Leonessa di Spoleto or Monteleone .
Nothing, absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them. I will definitely be back!

"It was a dark and stormy night," and the agriturismo place where we had a reservation for the night in the remote little town of Poggiodomo had decided not to open after all on this off-season evening. Folks there did, however, kindly lead us on winding roads the 9 kilometers to what became for us a special find: the Colle del Capitano, near Monteleone di Spoleto. Piera and Carlo Vannozzi agreed to take in the forlorn travelers, offering a somewhat austere but spacious room with all necessary comforts.

It was already 8 PM, and Piera hadn't been expecting any guests, but she agreed to whip up something for us to eat. It was, indeed, quick and simple--and memorable: the pasta course was perfumed with luxurious gratings of the morning's forest discovery, the region's famed black truffles; then a frittata, also liberally flavored with truffle shavings.

The azienda also conserves a unique historical moment. The old wooden cart in front of the farmhouse is precisely over the spot where the Vannozzis' grandfather had unearthed an Etruscan chariot, which he was persuaded to sell for 60 lire to cover the cost of a roof repair--the famous "Biga" whose display in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art remains fiercely contested by the Monteleonesi. In the mists of an early October morning, the complex of buildings of the Colle del Capitano, the lazing sheepdogs and truffle-hunting dogs, and the cart that evokes the remarkable discovery a century ago of a landmark antiquity, all made for a special satisfaction.

We stayed for 2 nights, sharing a lovely home cooked meal with the family Piero, Saverio, Graziano which was prepared by Piera & sister Rita. We had all home grown ingredients from truffle to pigeon, procuitto, cheese soup, lamb in rosemary & garlic, plus liquers I am a chef and this was the best meal we'd had in Italy. I even helped milk the goats. Accommodation was fantastic.Beautiful surroundings.
We have recommended this lovely farm stay to everyone we know travelling to Italy..
