"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.
