Colleverde is a welcoming holiday farmhouse, the result of a meticulous restoration of a 17th century Umbrian country house.
The house is close to the famous town of Spoleto, and perfectly situated for those who love the tranquillity and beauty of the countryside, and the art and folklore for which Umbria is famous.
The property is set in unspoilt countryside between the green hills of Umbria at the entrance to the Appennines.
A place from another time, yet just 10 minutes by car to historic Spoleto (about 8 kms), the old Longobardian capital, and famous in roman times for stopping Hannibal on his victory march, and now renown for its famous summer festival.
The house is surrounded by a fenced garden with lawn and is set amidst two acres of wooded park with cypresses and firs which declines to a generous swimming pool (14 x 7 m) with esedra. The wood oven and the small private votive chapel of the property remind the visitor that we are in Umbria a place of good food and spirituality.
The interior is traditionally furnished, with antique furniture and wrought ironwork all carefully restored, whilst the kitchen (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, oven and washing machine) has the very latest fittings, and there is a Hi-Fi and satellite TV for modern entertainment.
From the equipped kitchen, it is possible to access to a panoramic terrace ideal for meals alfresco. Within easy reach of Rome (135 kms), it is also an ideal centre for visits to Montefalco (34 kms); Spello (44 kms); Assisi (52 kms), Foligno (40 kms) and Todi (33 kms).
Nature, gastronomy, art and culture are all elements of any stay in this part of Umbria.
