“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 16 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.

“Umbria's finest holiday rental”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a fantastic holiday house! It has everything you need and even more. The pool is very large and clean with a marvelous view on the green Umbrian hills. The rooms are also spacious and nicely decorated. But above all the hosts gave us the warmest welcome ever and made us feel at home. Ezio, Lucia and Fabrizio are the most hospitable and generous people you'll meet. We realy didn't want to go home after two splendid weeks. Grazie!

“A fantastic place to stay for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

This place was a delightful find and exceptional quality for the price charged. Although a little remote - a round trip to Umbertide takes approximately 1 hour and most attractions are a good hour away - the peacefulness, quality of the accommodation and superb views make the well appointed accommodation a fantastic place to unwind and relax in the Umbrian sunshine. Definitely one of the best places we have stayed at. Certainly a place we could easily come back to.
