Villa perched on the edge of a small village
A spacious and cosy two bedroom village home with a chic nod to Italian design of the 1970s.
Perched on the edge of a small village, the house is set in a piazza just across from Collazzone’s medieval towers. Life in the 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 spy on grandfathers tending 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 La Casetta 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 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 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
