I tried to post under the proper name.....
L'Antica Vetreria Villa & Apts in Village w/Pool!
But can only post under the incorrect spelling....
We stayed at L’antica Vetria for one week from May 15th to 22nd.Colleen the owner was an excellent host, full of information about the area and very helpful.
The little town that they are located (Piegaro) in is very nice and the people there are very friendly, tho may not speak much English so bring along a phrase book!
Within a 1 minute walk is the little café (open good hours) a bank with ATM, a butcher, grocery story, glass museum restaurant. Within a 3 minute walk is a little store that sells everything you may have forgotten (tutti por la casa)
And the local bakery post office are maybe a 10 minute walk at best.
There is another store in that direction too about 5 minute walk at most just past the main parking where the Wednesday market is.
We were two couples and had booked La Terrazza (the bottom 2 bedroom unit) but as it wasn’t ready for us (it needed a good cleaning from the past winter) Colleen bumped us up to the AWESOME 5 bedroom Villa. Let me tell you that the Villa is spacious. It has 5 bedrooms each with their own full bathroom, it has a full kitchen, livingroom and fireplace and huge table on the mainfloor, along with 2 bedrooms. On one side you go up stairs to see 2 more bedrooms. On the other side you go half way up the stairs to a bedroom in the tower (with its own fireplace), and then at the top of the stairs you have another living room with TV and fireplace.
There is a pool outside and each unit has their area with chairs and BBQ.
As the weather was cooler than usual Colleen was able to order us some wood for the fireplace and we had a fire in the upstairs part of the villa 4 nights in a row to warm up after busy days of site seeing.
This place would be perfect for 3 to 5 couples easily.
Colleen gave us a tour of the whole facility and all the rooms look awesome and would be great to stay in, the lower Terrazza that we had booked might be kind of dreary in cooler weather as it has smaller windows but would be fine in the summer.
This is an awesome place to stay and a great location for visiting Tuscany and Umbria, We will definitely return here someday soon I hope!
