N° 003 | Molto dolce

users 4 bed 2 bath 3

Perched on the edge of a tiny village, this small village home is set in a piazza just across from Collazzone's medieval towers. Life in this Umbrian village is ‘molto dolce’ (very sweet). Each day begins with the chime of the church bells at San Lorenzo – and on a Sunday morning, the sound of the church choir joins in. You can see the locals tending to their vegetable patches as you stroll to the piazza for your morning espresso. On Saturday night you might join the locals for a spritz at the Caffe before walking over to the trattoria for a delicious plate of strangozzi cacio e pepe, or wood-fired pizza.  And the views from this beautiful villa home show off all of Umbria's classic beauty: the hilltown of San Terenziano, chestnut forests, and olive groves, and the Appenine Mountains in the far horizon.

The Space

A small but spacious two-bedroom home with a whimsical nod to the Italian design of the 1970s. The house has two bedrooms, two large baths, an eat-in kitchen with chestnut beams, and terrazzo counters and floors throughout. It features fine linens, custom beds, and baths with heated floors and luxurious rain showers. There's a comfortable sitting room and sunken living room with a doorway out to your private terraced gardens. The gardens are planted with rosemary, sage, jasmine, and lavender. On the first terrace, you'll find a big wooden table set under a pergola. Close by is a rustic outdoor kitchen with a fireplace for evening meals looking over the valley. On the next level is your hidden pool that extends out into the green heart of Italy.

The house has three levels inside and stairs outside to reach the pool. This property is suitable for children ages 10 and up.


Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The small village house is surrounded by about 500 trees line the grove, where they grow three classic qualities of olives: Leccino, Moraiolo, and Frantoio—the types you’ll find in every Umbrian’s back (and front) yard. They are watched closely and hand-picked early. Pressed within 24 hours of harvest, the extra virgin is the very best of Umbrian olio di oliva. This year’s crop is delicious: a concentrated, fruity olive oil with the famous Umbrian peppery kick at the finish. Don't forget to taste (and buy) this extraordinary olive oil. 

Agri Segretum Wine

The house is surrounded by vineyards, they planted vines in 2008 on a sun-exposed Southwest facing slope at an altitude of 300 meters. The strong Umbrian sun, the dry wind brought by the scirocco, and the mud …  Lots of mud! This taught them valuable lessons, but with the help of a Tuscan agronomist and enologist, who were curious to see what the Umbrian soil could produce, they managed to make an exceptional wine. Pensioners, village moms, and teenagers hiked into the vineyard with buckets and a pair of shears to harvest our crop. That’s how they have done it since the start and that’s how they keep doing it. Definitely try the wine at the property (or bring some bottles home with you!)

The Surroundings

Collazzone: A small medieval town perched above the Tiber River Valley, with plenty of local color and spectacular views. Narrow cobblestoned streets lead to a caffè, a pizzeria and ancient monuments. As San Lorenzo is Collazzone’s patron saint, the local church bears his name – as does the ancient Roman monastery in the nearby hills.

There are plenty of signed hiking and biking trails running through the property (literally right outside the front door) and around Collazzone. Featuring picturesque views at every turn, these winding pathways lead to ancient hilltop towns, medieval monuments, rolling vineyards, and lush valleys. Hiking/biking maps and route directions are available to guests upon request, as are Cannondale hybrid bicycles.
