About the Owner

We are presently living our dream full time in the amazing village of Piegaro! We love to greet our guests, give advice, teach pasta lessons and generally live the good life in a wonderful village where our friends and neighbors are so welcoming of us and also of our guests. Originally from Seattle we always dreamed of living in Italy someday. It is important not only to dream but to chase that dream with great passion! We love to share this passion with our guests from over 24 different countries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What else is there to say about a month in Piegaro except it was difficult to leave and our children wanted to live there forever! We made it back home without issue and are still missing Piegaro. You have created an amazing environment and we are very thankful to have found you and your lovely Antica Vetereria! We had an absolutely memorable time. Sophia and William both said it was the best thing they ever did in their 11 and 9 years respectively.We are hoping to come back in 2012!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks, Colleen and Tom, for renovating this lovely building in the charming town of Piegaro. It had everything we were looking for - a pool, a beautiful setting in a lovely town (with groceries and restaurants), and lodgings that are luxurious by European standards.

Easily accessible from the Autostrada and within 1 to 1 1/2 hours from Orvieto, Siena and Florence, it made a great base for our exploring. I just wish we could have stayed longer, and wish the weather had been sunnier!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that Kay and her friend and family enjoyed staying in our apartment dating to the 9th Century! We have worked hard to offer every comfort to our guests. Sorry that we had a spot of rain in late May for part of their visit. We enjoyed meeting them and sharing a glass of wine while watching the beautiful sunset together! Colleen and Tom

From the Owner

It called to us! This vast abandoned glass factory which was the single most historic property in a pristine little perched hilltop village in Umbria on the border of Tuscany. We spent our honeymoon in Umbria in 1994 and fell in love with this region. After searching for 10 years we found our little piece of paradise! We lovingly restored it to become a beautiful and authentic destination for guests.

From the Owner

Every evening the sun sets over the vast panoramic views from the windows and terraces of L'Antica Vetreria. The idyllic countryside is always tranquil and inviting. From the pool one can enjoy privacy and the expanding view over farmlands and hillsides filled with olive groves, vines and sunflower fields. But just steps away is the lively piazza with its shops and gourmet restaurants with outdoor terraces. Each evening one can sit in the piazza and watch the village children play, the elders take their evening walk and feel totally welcomed with warmth. We love to live the authentic life of Italy which cannot be done isolated in the countryside. This way we have the views and tranquility of the country, but the daily rhythms of village life. Everything you need is within these historic stone walls!
