Summary

The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and the east facing terrace and gazebo overlooking the pool on the south side provide additional space for eating “al fresco” or simply chilling out.

It's unusual to find a property of this size - perfect for families - which is totally private and independent. The house is surrounded by farmland and is fenced and gated, making it very secure for children. You will be undisturbed by traffic noise, you are not overlooked by neighbours, but a short drive will take you to some of Umbria's most splendid historic towns.

Collemaggio is unique in providing a real taste of Umbrian rural life, in complete privacy, yet with the luxury of a private swimming pool. Every guest comments on the cleanliness of the house, pool and gardens. The house is furnished in the typical style of Umbrian "contadini" - simple, but with all you need for everyday comfort. At Collemaggio it is impossible NOT to relax!

The owners of Collemaggio, Giuseppe and Maria are known for their kindness and thoughtfulness. They will not intrude on your holiday experience, but will go out of their way to be sure you have everything you need. You will be welcomed with a basket of their own and other local produce, providing you with your first taste of the generosity that comes naturally in rural Umbria.

 

Description of Interior

There are three bedrooms; two double and one single. The single currently has a bunk bed and is suitable for 2 children. An additional single bed can be provided, and the living room has a comfortable sofa-bed. A cot and high chair can also be provided at no extra charge.

The breakfasting kitchen is modern and well equipped and the French doors give access to the covered terrace – just perfect for taking that cappuccino in the morning sunshine.

The large living room has a formal dining area and two sofas for curling up in front of the fire with a good book on cooler evenings.

 

Garden and Exterior

The swimming pool area (described by guests as the cleanest EVER), is completely fenced and complies with all current safety regulations. The pool is 11 x 5 metres with a depth of 1.5m, so is ideal for children.

Behind the house, there is the “smallholding” housing sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits – a favourite area for children to explore. The owners, Giuseppe and Maria visit very early each morning to see to the animals, clean the pool and water the gardens. You won’t know that they’ve been there except for the basket of produce they’ll leave you.

Local Area

Collemaggio is situated 3 km from the small town of Valfabbrica, which is on the SS318, 20 km from Perugia, 15 km from Assisi, 30 km from Gubbio and providing excellent road access from Rome, Ancona and Northern Italy.Valfabbrica is crossed by the famous Sentiero Francescano, a road between Assisi and Gubbio travelled by St. Francis, and now a well-signposted pilgrimage route.
Valfabbrica offers all main services, including banks, pharmacy, emergency medical care, post office, petrol station, 2 supermarkets (one open Sundays), 2 bakers (one open Sunday morning), butcher, fishmonger (Thursday and Friday only), pizzerie and restaurants. You can get a slice of pizza to eat on the go, or spend a few hours enjoying a typically Umbrian lunch at the restaurants offering home made and local produce - fresh pasta with truffles, woodland asparagus, 'torta al testo', wild boar and some excellent wines.
Valfabbrica is well-placed for visiting the capital of Umbria - Perugia, which has antique and craft markets, the National Gallery of Art, churches, museums, Roman remains and "Umbria Jazz" in July
each year, not forgetting the Chocolate festival in October - surely the most delicious festival in Italy!
From May to October, there are "feste" or "sagre" in almost every village and town in Umbria. Going to a festa is a great way to experience local life and eat well (and cheaply).

Other towns of interest that are easily accessible include Spello, Gubbio, Citta di Castello, Todi, Spoleto (famous for the Festival dei Due Mondi in June/July) and Umbria's spiritual jewel – Assisi.
