Il Poggio-'the ledge'-is your private window on some of Umbria's prettiest scenery, and a perfect base for the nearby tourist centres of Perugia, Assisi, Spoleto as well as Todi-which is in full view. The farmhouse sits in 2 hectares of gently sloping fields bordered with olives and oak trees. It is built in the traditional stone, timber and terracotta, but with 21st century kitchen, bathrooms, heating and lighting. It has a completely private, zero-chlorine 12 meter 'infinity' pool with panoramic views, poolhouse and a new (2007) tennis court below. The main house makes the most of the views and summer breezes, with its wide covered porches, spacious open-plan living area and separate study downstairs plus three bedrooms upstairs. There are pinewoods with walking trails directly behind the house. A 1km gravel drive leads out to the main asphalt road to the hamlet of Saragano. Shopping and restaurants are at 5 km and the famous wineries and sights of Montefalco and Bevagna at 10km.

About Andrea Rogerson
We are semi-retired Umbria enthusiasts. Andrea (Andrew) is half Italian, a research economist, and Carole, 100% English, a dyslexia tutor. We rent the house only for limited periods, spending as much time there with friends and family as we can.
Andrea Rogerson purchased this Farmhouse in 2003
Why Andrea Rogerson chose Collazzone
Fantastic views, a great feeling of space and quiet, and the best pool... Andrea has been coming to Umbria for four decades before we developed this site. It has a lot of memories for us, and a lot of our personal art and decoration.
What makes this Farmhouse unique

Modern lighting, kitchen and bathroom systems in a traditional farmhouse shell. Fast satellite wi-fi for those, like us, who choose to do a bit of work, or just network, between sunbathes.

Heaven on a ledge.
I keep on coming back to Il Poggio because it's the complete package; beautiful, secluded and spacious with the most incredible pool.
You never tire of the view, or the scent of the lavender that surrounds the house.
An amazing villa
A fantastic villa with views to die for! Il Poggio was exactly what we wanted for a relaxing week away. Lovely pool and amazing house - we would definitely recommend.
