Staying at Borgo la Colonica far exceeded our expectations. A special welcome after a long journey with a local bread, salami and wine was much appreciated.

The house is well decorated with a relaxing, local feel. You can see the attention to detail on almost every step: scented candles, cute owl cushions in kids’ bedroom, embroided towels etc. The photos on the website do not make it justice - this is such a nice place. The kitchen is so well equipped, we had a number of BBQ dinners al fresco and the house had all we needed.
Our children loved the pool – it’s big, there is enough room for racing, jumping, playing silly with grandparents! Scenic views, relaxing on comfortable outdoor furniture observing the sunsets with a glass of local wine was truly idyllic!
The local village of Preggio (10 minute drive near fields full of sunflowers) has a good cake shop with delicious tiramisu, there is a quality butcher and a small supermarket where you can order home made ravioli.
The property is very specious and the owners are discrete while very hospitable. We entertained friends with children one afternoon and there was enough room for a dinner party of 10.
We all had a wonderful holiday and left with great memories.

“Couldn't recommend highly enough”

This is a delightful holiday home, would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful retreat in Umbria. There is plenty of relaxing outdoor space with amazing scenic views across the mountains and the house itself is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Fabrizio's parents are incredibly kind and friendly, they looked after us really well and we can't wait to see them again next time we visit.

“Idyilic holiday villa with fantastic views and pool to die for!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The owners on site are discrete yet immensely hospitable. On arrival we were given a tour and then left to settle in and enjoy the wine and cured sausage left for us. They adore children and make a big fuss of them. The villa itself has all you need!! The pool is a welcome break from the heat. The location makes it a good base to visit Rome, Florence and other Umbrian and Tuscan sites. One of the best holidays I've had, didn't want to go home!!

“Incredible Umbrian Experience at Borgo la Colonica”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had an amazing vacation while staying at Borgo la Colonica! We had never been to Umbria before, and staying in this home made our stay perfect.

First of all, the owners, Ezio, Lucia and Fabrizio are incredible hosts. Not only are they kind and welcoming and helpful, they let our three-year-old help them water the plants and pick strawberries. If we needed anything they were more than accommodating.

THe property is stunning. The garden is immaculate, the yard is well groomed and they have wonderful lawn furniture to relax on, visit and even eat outside. The pool is salt water, which we loved and it is always incredibly clean and the perfect temperature.

The inside of the home is clean and has comfortable furniture and is the perfect size. They had everything we needed for a long stay. The bedrooms were a great size and the beds were comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more perfect accommodations.

The surrounding area is beautiful. Although it's a bit remote, we loved the peace and quiet. Preggio is a beautiful village 5 minutes away, and Castel Rigone is a bit bigger of a village 15 minutes away and has a bar, grocery store and is a stunning medieval village. Make sure and visit the church! Wow! Umbertide is about 20 minutes away and has everything you'll need. We also loved the Girasole di San'Andrea restaurant close by. The owners can tell you more. They are from the area and had lots of recommendations for us.

Overall, I would give this home the highest marks. We will always have fond memories of our time at Borgo la Colonica in Umbria!

“So Peaceful, So Welcoming”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Such a find at such a low cost.
All the family agreed that after just a couple of nights that this was the best holiday they had been to for a long while. The size of the pool is fantastic and the view, when swimming, compliments it well. The owners were there when needed and provided welcome home produced veg and fruit and advice but did not interfere with any part of our stay. Villa directions including GPS coordinates were provided, without asking, before departure.
The local COOP shop in Umbertide, 20min drive, may not look the best but has a very varied and well supplied local produce and is used to foreign visits.
Local restaurants well worth a visit but could never be better than than a few drinks and BBQ looking over the evening view.
Rome 2.5hrs and Florence 1.5hrs comfortable driving.
