The Umbria region

Umbria is the "Green Heart" of Italy, known for its verdant countryside and all the hills topped with castles, villages, watch and bell towers. From Piegaro, which is right on the border of Tuscany, guests can visit all the famous sights of Umbria: nearby Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto, Spello, Gubbio and Lago Trasimeno. In Tuscany in 45 minutes will find you in the iconic Val d'Orcia, Montepulciano or Pienza or Cortona. In an hour: Siena, Florence, Montalcino. Enjoy the famous wines: Brunello of Montalcino, Vino Nobile of Montepulciano, Sagrantino of Montefalco and the classic white of Orvieto! Food harvest festivals range from asparagus in April to strawberries in June, Truffles in July and October, and Porcini mushrooms in September. We can arrange local wild asparagus, truffle or mushroom hunting. Local chefs teach guests to make typical Umbrian cuisine. Swim and water sports at our local Water Park or the largest lake in the Italian Peninsula, Lago Trasimeno is only 25 km. Weekly food markets filled with fresh vegetables, fruits, roast pork, cheeses and clothing. Shop in Cortona for the finest cashmere, leather bags, art work, ceramics and hand made shoes. Orvieto has ceramics, glass jewelry, olive wood products. Nearby Deruta is world famous for their hand painted ceramics in classic or modern designs. Arrive with an empty bag to fill with fine products! Local festivals in Piegaro in August guests can dress in medieval garb for a procession of royalty and watch glass artisans for a four day celebration of Days of Glass. In October is our annual Chestnut Festival for ten days filled with celebrations, feasts, food and craft booths, music and dancing. Perugia has the Umbrian Jazz in July and the Euro Chocolate Festival in October.

Lake Trasimeno

Piegaro is rich in history with glass making since 1292. Visit the Glass Museum in Piegaro which is wonderfully curated. Weekly classes for adults and children. Nearby waterpark is the largest in Umbria. Free wine tour and tasting at Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio winery locally.

Piegaro is famous for glass making for over 700 years. Every year in August and October are festivals where glass blowers demonstrate their art, processions in medieval dress, food banquets, music and dancing. Visit local wineries in addition to the famous Cantina Monte Vibiano Vecchio where we take our guests weekly. In a few minutes drive you can taste Brunello wines of Montalcino, the Vino Nobile of Montepulciano or the classic Orvieto white wines. Largest waterpark is just 4 km from Piegaro.

"A Magical, One-of-a-Kind Place"

I don't know if I am a poetic enough writer to do justice writing about this property. Not only is there beauty to the eye in the unique, historical building, in the gorgeous views, and in the sweet village, there is also beauty for the soul in all of these elements. An experience like this is my favorite way to travel: some days my family took day trips to local sites and played tourist; other days we hung around the village, being a part of everyday community life. For the owners of this property, Colleen and Tom, this endeavor is so much more than a business; it is a passion of the heart that is evident in every detail, large and small. They are completely accessible by email, phone, or in person to share their joy and knowledge of the region, the people, and each and every logistical question you can throw their way. I traveled here with my husband and 6-year-old son, and we all found something to enjoy, and we all wished we could stay much, much longer than we were able. I can't imagine not visiting here again.

"Exceptional family holiday"

We have been fortunate to stay at L'Antica Vetreria a few times and cannot wait for our next holiday! With a variety of lodging options, we,'ve stayed in a small apartment for just the four of us, or in the glorious "Villa" with extended family. I cannot say what a magical place this is for a family get away. Colleen and Tom are amazing hosts and their accomplishment in renovating the Vetreria is truly inspirational. My children love to run about the village of Piegaro as if they own the place, and family cook-outs on the poolside terrace overlooking the valley are some of our favorite family legends. Staying in Umbria provides a low-key holiday, with plenty of options to explore historic villages, shop, and enjoy really wonderful food.
