One of the most typical and picturesque holiday farms in the green hills of Umbria is located in Vernazzano, a town situated in a beautiful area surrounded by hills, woods, vineyards and fields.
La Casa Colonica is a typical Umbria mansion from ‘800s, that has been renovated maintaining its original features. In fact, wherever you wander to in this country house, you will find materials that are evocative of long-lost times, just as if time itself has stopped. Both the flooring and the supporting structure of walls and floors are made of sandstone and terracotta.
The hipped roof still features interlocked monk and nun tiles, with an aged look. The oak wood windows and the original beams remind us of the ancient origins of this countryside mansion.
We couldn’t call it a real farmhouse if it didn’t have an external area, that in our case extends for 4.000 sqm. The most part of it is occupied by the park and the swimming pools, one for adults and one for children.
La Casa Colonica features also a 100% functioning farm, where we raise farm animals and grow seasonal produce. This farm was built in 1856 as well, and still keeps the typical features of the place.
In addition, our guests can visit the area where we keep our horses, donkeys, ponies and little goats.
Remember that it’s possible to make your stay unforgettable, by going on a horseback riding trail.
Something else that you can’t underestimate is the possibility of tasting our locally grown and produced products, such as jams, oil, Tuscan and Umbria wines…all prepared with the utmost care and dedication.
La Casa Colonica is not only located in a peaceful and relaxing place, but is also immersed in an ancient historical setting. In fact, the village of Vernazzano was initially home to the Etruscans. Then, later on, it was inhabited by fishermen and woodcutters.
This small village became famous in June 217 B.C., when Hannibal defeated the Roman army led by Gaius Flaminius Nepos at the Battle of Trasimeno.
When you enter La Casa Colonica, you will be completely surrounded by a familiar atmosphere. This is due to the attention to details, and above all to the love and dedication that the whole personnel puts in the countryhouse. Stefania, the owner, is extremely nice and kind, and will make you feel at home.
The only thing you have to do here is to forget your problems and anxieties!
La Casa Colonica has nine apartments each one with a private entry. The apartments are all furnished in rustic style, with great attention to details. Cotto tiles and exposed beams are a must have in the apartments, which have all the same style, even if each one has been designed with a unique look.
When staying at La Casa Colonica, you will feel welcome and at home. Privacy and quiet are the magic words that allow us to offer our guests the best service ever, together with a truly relaxing experience.
The apartments offer every comfort you can think of, such as independent heating, kitchenware, bed sheets and towels, satellite TV and an external area that only guests can use, with a table, chairs and a swimming pool sunbed. Outdoors, near the swimming pool, we have a brick barbecue that our guests can use for every occasion.
We also have some common areas that our guests can avail of during the whole day. Among these, we have a laundry room with an iron and an ironing board, the reception where you can use the phone and Internet, and a big recreation room with a coffee bar and a kitchen.
