La Vigna, wine estate, apartments with pool

  based on 3 reviews
Description

La Vigna (the vineyard) is situated in the centre of Umbria, just  below the old village of Saragano in the area of Collazzone, between  Todi and Foligno. On this small scale farm excellent wines and olive oil  are produced.

The  owners of La Vigna have turned this antique building into a small scale  holiday rental, with cantina where they make olive oil and the famous  Sagrantino and Montefalco Rosso wine. 

There  are 3 apartments for rent, sharing a nice swimming pool and garden. One  apartment has two bedrooms and the others have one bedroom. The  apartments can be rented together as one private holiday accommodation  with 4 bedrooms.

The main house with origins from the 17th  century, was renewed in the 90's. The owners have  maintained its  original structure. In the main house the owners have their own  apartment. They use this occasionally as they are living in Rome and  come now and then in the weekends. One of the three apartments is also  in the main house. The other two apartments are in the newly built house  below where the cantina is (where the wine is made).

The property  is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and some fields with cereals.  Furthermore there is some forest and a natural Mediterranean vegetation.  The holiday rental is about 350 meters above sea level, and enjoys  beautiful views over the Umbrian hills.

La Vigna holiday rental  has a swimming pool (5 by 12 meter with Roman steps on one side and 1.20  meter deep). The pool has spacious sun terraces with sun beds. There is  a big BBQ guests can share and a ping pong table.

La  Vigna has everything you need for a great stay in the heart of the  Umbria hills. The three apartments (one with 2 bedrooms and the other  two each with one bedroom) have private terraces in front of the  door. There are pigeons in an aviary, some chickens and a few sheep walk  around to keep the grass short.

There  is wifi access near the  pool and reception area (mobile connection) and there is a  washing machine down the  hill in a separated shed. 

The swimming pool is open from mid June to the end of September.

Heerlijke week

Beste dames, Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad in de drie appartementen op het goed onderhouden landgoed LaVigna. De ligging is prachtig en het zwembad eveneens. Voor ons gezelschap, samengesteld gezin met oudere kinderen, is de indeling in drie afzonderlijke appartementen ideaal. Je bent wel een beetje afhankelijk van mooi weer want er is geen ruimte waar je met acht personen binnen kunt eten. Wij hadden dat mooie weer. De begeleiding door Gloria is erg goed en de (rode) wijn van het huis misschien nog wel beter. Het zwembad en een appartement liggen wel een stukje van de andere twee appartementen.

Voor herhaling vatbaar

Appartement Casale Beste Saskia en Sylvia, Jullie nodigen ons uit om feedback te geven op onze vakantie in appartement La Vigna-Casale. Laten we eens beginnen met de aankomst: Een grote vrachtwagen versperde de toegang tot ons verblijf. Er bleek niemand aanwezig, ondanks ons sms bericht een uurtje van te voren. Een telefoontje naar het "problemen" nummer, wat door de zeer slechte telefoonverbinding moeizaam tot stand kwam, bracht geen echte oplossing. "Pronto, no parlare inglesi" met aansluitend piep, piep, piep, was niet echt wat je mag verwachten. Maar ja, je bent op vakantie, dus met een flesje water op het terras, een sigaartje en sigaretje en vooral een prachtig uitzicht op de wijngaard en het olijvenbos, deed ons niet echt in de stress schieten. Op een gegeven moment hoorde wij iemand roepen "is there somebody?" Dat was mr. Giovanni met zijn hondjes, die zo af en toe eens kwam kijken op het terrein. Hij sprak perfect Engels en was in de veronderstelling dat wij pas een week later zouden arriveren. 1000 excuses later, die wij allemaal afwimpelden, we zijn tenslotte uiterst relaxed op vakantie, ging hij de beheerder halen, mr. Devis. Die was ergens op het landgoed aan het werk. Een half uurtje later kwamen zij samen terug, met nog meer excuses. Onzin, want dat was niet nodig. Devis vond een fles wijn als goedmakertje wel gepast. Op mijn "due", nam hij er dus maar twee mee uit de cantina. Dit was de Montefalco, 50% Sagrantino, 25% Merlot en 25% Sangiovese. Topwijn! Het appartement was overigens gewoon helemaal tiptop in orde en een mooi welkomstpakketje, met spaghetti, water en broodjes + een mapje met allemaal mooie plekjes om naar toe te gaan lag voor ons klaar. Zo een misverstand kan nu eenmaal gebeuren en deed ons humeur niet verminderen. Waarom niet? Het appartement was fantastisch. Bijna middeleeuws, gelegen in een extreem rustige omgeving met een prachtig uitzicht over de heuvels met wijngaarden en olijfbomen. Daarbij zijn Giovanni en Devis een prachtig stel, vriendelijk, behulpzaam en geïnteresseerd in de mens. Met alle tips om diverse mooie steden en dorpen te bezoeken, de adviezen over de lokale restaurants en cantina's, maakte dat wij ons bijzonder thuis voelden. Op de verjaardag van mijn vrouw werd er spontaan een geweldig mooi ontbijt georganiseerd met een omeletje van verse eieren, worst, kaas, brood en heerlijke witte wijn. En dat op het terras van de eigenaar aan de andere kant van ons appartement. Geweldig! Ik kan nog heel veel meer vertellen over deze vakantie, maar dan zal de site niet groot genoeg zijn om al deze informatie te kunnen bevatten. Kortom, we hebben een super mooie vakantie genoten, mede dankzij deze enorm sympathieke mensen, de omgeving met het prachtige uitzicht en de rust. Wat ons betreft: voor herhaling vatbaar! Gerard en Sonja Nederland Note: Saskia en Sylvia, dank voor het regelen en we gaan elkaar nog eens vinden!

Villa in Umbria
English reviews copied from previous Villa in Umbria website

2014: Dear Saskia and Sylvia, we herewith send you our feedback. Upon arrival there was nobody waiting for us. We called the owner, but he didn’t answer the phone. We were not worried at all, we thought: “we are on a holiday and everything will be ok!” We waited and we enjoyed the views from the terrace. At a certain moment a very friendly gentleman with his dog passed by and he asked us if we were the new guests of La Vigna! He spoke a bit English. He told us that they expected us one week later! He apologized for the misunderstanding, but it was all fine. He called Devis, the caretaker who was at that moment working in the countryside. They are a wonderful team. Very helpful and friendly. For the misunderstanding Devis gave us two bottles of Umbrian red wine. We felt more than welcome! They made us feel at home. Both informed us about places to visit, restaurants etc. On my wife’s birthday we got a nice “surprise” breakfast with eggs, sausages, cheese, bread, butter and a bottle of white wine in our apartment. How fantastic! I could tell you more about our holiday experience in Umbria, but in short we want to tell you that we had a lovely vacation in Umbria and we enjoyed La Vigna. A holiday not to forget. Many thanks to Giovanni and Devis, Villa in Umbria and the very nice Umbrian people. You all made our holiday complete! We will come back. Thank you for organizing our holiday. We will be in touch again! Regards, Gerard and Sonja Holland 2013: Hello Saskia and Willemijn, I want to thank you for a lovely holiday. We had a good time at a wonderful location. Devis gave us some excellent advice about restaurants in the area and we enjoyed the peace, the quiet, the views, the friendly people. It all made up for a good holiday. If possible, we would like to return to the same place next year. Kind regards, Giovanni & Anja Hi Saskia and Willemijn, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Umbria ! It is a very beuatiful area and the silence one can actually hear ! Apart from the cicades and birds twinkling we didn’t hear a thing. This is difficult to find anywhere in Belgium. Devis did his best to make it all more comfortabe for us. He is very accomodating. Already the first evening we had to call him, because we closed rhe door with the keys inside and our baby sleeping inside! Panic ! But Devis came along and resolved the situation. A tip for future guests: always take the keys with you when you go outside. If the door closes behind you, you will need the keys to get in again. On the first morning Devis accompanied us to Bastardo to get to the supermarket and invited us for a coffee in the local bar. Such a good service! Each morning the pool was cleaned, the garden is well kept. A change of linen halfway or holiday (we stayed 2 weeks) was very welcome. We had several large centipedes in the house that scared us a lot, but knowing they don’t hurt we got them out before going to bed. We probably were the first guests, because the house was clean, but dusty. The location is a fair bit from the high way, but we knew this beforehand and it is probably because of this that we could enjoy the total silence. We fully enjoyed our holiday! Good luck to WIllemijn with her new endeavours and to Saskia good luck with Villa in Umbria. Thank you both for the good service. Regards, Bert en Marleen Hello Saskia and Willemijn, We were at La Vigna for the second time and we would like to let you know that there have been some improvements. The road leading up to the house was redone and easier to drive then last year. We now had fly screens in the bedroom windows. There was a fan available. We also had new pots and pans, plates, cups etc. All we needed was there. This time we also met the owners themselves. We enjoyed exchanging a few words with them. 

We can’t think of anything negative. Maybe the barking dogs during the night (now and then) but this really did not influence our holiday at all. We strongly recommend this holiday address. With kind regards, F. Verhevick
