“Stunning location, beautiful property with welcome hosts.”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The location of this property is fantastic, within easy distance to Perugia, and even the two hour drive to Florence was a breeze. The children made full use of the fantastic pool, set in gorgeous gardens filled with lavender and olive trees. The hosts were wonderfully welcoming, yet allowed us to feel as though the place was ours alone. A fantastic holiday that we will remember well, and would recommend this rental highly.

“Umbria at its best”

We drove here from Assisi and I will forewarn you it is hard to find. Fabrisio, our host, kindly met us in Umbertide and we followed him down 30 minutes of scenic twisting mountain roads to a beautiful farmhouse set back 200 yards off a small road. The guest portion of the house was with rustic charm and everything you will need for a restful stay in this incredible countryside. We hiked explored with day trips and slept a lot by the pool. It was one of the most peaceful places I have ever been and my wife and I own a farm.
Our host were exceptional and treated us like family.
I cannot adequately describe the beauty of the surrounding countryside but it consisted of mountain top castles or watchtowers, beautifully cultivated land (Tobacco believe it or not), blood red poppy fields and hardwood forest. We saw wild boar, deer,
hedgehogs and badgers daily on the road. The birds were great singers and we were within 15 minutes of three exceptional restaurants. There are a great number of expat Brits. here so there was little language problems.
I am not sure about rating this property as high as I am because of the potential of not being able to book it in the future.

Beautiful, peaceful - the perfect place to "get away" from it all. Even if Gwyneth Paltrow happens to be staying nearby... Well equipped villa, comfortable and full of homely touches. The pool is stunning and private in a rich secluded garden and was a welcome distraction for two energetic children. Lucia and Etsio are very welcoming and helpful but do not impose themselves on you. So many glorious places to explore in the area and wineries and restaurants to sample. We reached Florence in less than 2 hours and Rome in 2.5 hours. We will definitely return!

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.
