“The Best in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

For anyone thinking of making a trip to Italy to visit the Tuscan wineries La Casa Colonica is a must. We spent a week at Colonica and had the pleasure to meet the owners of Colonica, Ms Stefania Messitte. She treated us to a wonderful place to stay with cottages that were so home like it makes you want to stay longer. Ms. Stefania and her staff provided not only a winery but olive oil production on her property. She treated us to wine stasting along with many wines, cheeses, and olive oil treats. This is a first class establishment with a down home feeling and the best Italy has to offer.

Best Wishes

Peter and Paula Cyr

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2008

We decided to spend the christmas season in Umbria with two friends of us who found by chance the website of this "agriturismo". The Casa Colonica is situated in a small district of Tuoro sul Trasimeno (Vernazzano), close to the lake Trasimeno and easy to reach from the highway.
The farmhouse is comprised of 7 apartments fully restored and furnished in good taste. We got the 'Violetta' apartment (2 bedrooms, a leaving room with kitchenette and a pretty fireplace, one bathroom - all rooms with visible beams). The place is so quiet, peaceful and country like, but very close to both Tuscany and Umbria main cultural attractions.
We saw some guests cooking their meet for dinner in a an outdoor fireplace for everybody's use. Lovely! There's a pool too (obviously not working because of the season) and a wide garden.
The owners (Sandra and Stefania) have been really kind, providing us with suggestions and hints for our visits and also offered us a bottle of their wine and oil. They own vineyards and olive trees too.
