A WORD FROM OUR GUESTS

  • A friend and I were travelling throughout Europe this summer and our last week was booked at L'antica Vetreria in Piegaro. We fell in love with L'Antica and the lovely, quiet village. It was the perfect place to spend our last week relaxing and enjoying this beautiful area of Umbria and Tuscany. The owner, Colleen, gave us tours to nearby villages and places of interest that we would never have gone on our own. We also visited some of the more well known tourist towns but the charm was in the places not well known to the tourists. Her knowledge of the area, the culture, people and history made our stay very special. Our room was completely furnished so we shopped at the local stores and cooked several meals in but also favored the local eating establishments that had fantastic food. You must try the Pizza Colleen at Juni's restaurant...I'm sure I'll never have one as good until I can return there. We had a beautiful view from our apartment il Nido of the and valley below and the village square is just a few steps from the entrance. Colleen gave pasta making classes one day to guests which was great fun and the glass factory offered etching classes and we each brought home a treasured piece.. I can't wait to go back. It's not just a place to stay, but Colleen has endeared herself to the local people and because of that, they make you feel welcome and embrace you as part of the village. A great stay, don't miss it.

  • Thanks, Colleen and Tom, for renovating this lovely building in the charming town of Piegaro. It had everything we were looking for - a pool, a beautiful setting in a lovely town (with groceries and restaurants), and lodgings that are luxurious by European standards. Easily accessible from the Autostrada and within an hour to Orvieto, Siena and Florence, it made a great base for our exploring. I just wish we could have stayed longer!
     

  • It's been a year since we've been there, but the sense memories are so vivid...it feels like a week. Colleen and Tom have created a retreat that's elegant and serene. Twenty times a day we'd witness something so simple and beautiful that we'd stop what we were doing and stare: The view of the valley, the clouds, the town, the birds, the 1000 year old interiors. This is the kind of place that when you're telling your friends about it, you'll say: "Go. Trust us. Just go. Stay as long as you can.

  • This is the best of an Italian experience. Piegaro is a picture perfect village and L'Antica Vetreria the place to stay. Our apartment was the best accommodation we had during our entire three country month-long European journey. It was tastefully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and gorgeous views out of every window. This is the place to recoup and relax. Tom and Colleen are gracious hosts looking after every detail to make one's visit memorable. The best part of staying with them in Piegaro was the cooking class and contact with local villagers and merchants who all were so friendly - and oh so patient with our Span-Italian. Great place for couples needing a get away rest or for a family building memories. Don't miss it! 

  • Your hospitality made our 40th anniversary trip a true gift! We loved the villa and vowed we would come back some day. We have sent many other friends to your web site and have told them of the beauty and warmth of the people and Piegaro.
     

  • What else is there to say about a month in Piegaro except it was difficult to leave and our children wanted to live there forever! We made it back home without issue and are still missing Piegaro. You have created an amazing environment and we are very thankful to have found you and your lovely Antica Vetereria!  We had an absolutely memorable time. Sophia and William both said it was the best thing they ever did in their 11 and 9 years respectively.We are hoping to come back in 2012!
