Colle in Ceralto or Casale di Ludovico is family-run, family-owned, and family-loved. The Bennicellis have lived in Umbria for over 200 years and are delighted to be able to share the beauty of the region whose land they have cultivated, and cherished, for generations. Guests are invited to enter into a more intimate relationship with nature in a relaxing oasis far from the stresses of city life.
Our villa is just outside of a small medieval town from which it draws its name. Located at the foot of a hill, it is surrounded by lush, untouched countryside where thick forests of oaks and groves of olive trees thrive as they have for centuries.
Recently renovated, Casale di Ludovico exudes an abundant Umbrian warmth, with its stone walls, beamed ceilings, and locally handcrafted furniture. The expansiveness of the house easily accommodates a large extended family or group of friends.
The ground floor consists of a large living room with a working fireplace, a fully-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms one with queen-sized bed and the other with a pair of twin beds, and two baths. The living room opens onto a large patio generously arrayed with tables and chairs.
Upstairs on the first floor there is another living room with a fireplace, four bedrooms (two with queen-sized beds, the others each with a pair of twin beds), and three baths.
Casa di Ludovico stands in its own large garden. It has its own private swimming pool, as well as a barbecue and wood-fired stove ideal for making pizza and bread.
