Local Information

The villa is very near Sismano, a small medieval fortification which was originally built to protect Todi. There is a small castle, a few shops and one excellent restaurant which is walking distance from the house.

The nearest lively town, Todi, is a mere 10 minute drive. Todi has wonderful restaurants, pizzerias and gelaterias, Italian local shops and there is more than enough choice for your daily needs.

Nearby the vineyards at Torgiano there is a well-known wine museum where you can learn about the history of Italian wine-making, who do tours. On the same ticket you can also visit the local olive oil museum.

In Deruta you will find the famous, traditional ceramics known as Maiolica (also found in other local towns) – true devotees of this china seek out Deruta where 250 factories still produce this colourful ceramic. From huge outdoor pots to tiny hand painted espresso cups – your suitcases will be bulging.

It is a great area for those who love their food and wine – with the celebrated Montefalco and Montepulciano not far away, sample tastings and tours galore before delicious lunches in any of these Umbrian hilltop towns – just wonderful!

Umbria is also known for its traditional linens and cashmere – these can be bought in nearby Todi.

Visit one of the many markets in the area and come home with a proper, authentic pizza cutter – or a great big ┬áhunk of parmesan cheese to last you through the Autumn.

Our View

We saw this house on a fabulous day in October and we were thrilled. This house is of a very high standard indeed and oh so elegant inside.

Casa Collina was completely renovated in 2014. Before you even walk through the door your breath is taken away by the absolutely staggering views of the surrounding hills and of the small medieval town of Pesciano.

The owners have carefully restored this villa and have created a beautiful bright and classically designed home – they have mixed old with new marrying antiques and contemporary pieces. Large pale grey bookshelves are oozing with delicious reads, there are cool, modern chairs and elegant painted french chairs side by side. The effect is great, and very stylish.

We particularly loved the kitchen in this house – glorious state of the art equipment and beautiful lighting means there are no excuses for not producing the very best fare! If you’d rather not there is a cook we can book (just let us know)…

Beautifully appointed rooms are large and comfortable, crisp white sheets adorn every bed and punchy colours on the cushions and bed covers give the rooms character. We like the way the owner has decorated this house – understated but with so much thought. We wandered from room to room ooing and ahing at all the beautiful fabric they have used.

The gardens are very large and boast beautiful plants including lots of mature trees and shade. Breakfasting on the terrace is the perfect place to enjoy the uninterrupted, vast views. Sit in the shade after a long lunch for a snooze – or catch up on the latest novel away from the noise of the pool. It is so wonderful to have large lawns for the children to play endless games of cricket or football.

The swimming pool is big and really beautiful, with tiled edges and comfortable white sun beds (with head shades – we love those!). How wonderful to eat lunch by the pool and enjoy those staggering valley views.
