the farm

 

In the heart of Umbria, only four kilometres from Deruta, reached by a road through the woods, the ANTICA FATTORIA DEL COLLErises on a little hill surrounded by the green of olive groves, vineyards, fields of wheat and sunflowers, with its two stone and brick Perugian farmhouses dating from last century, which have been fully and skillfully restored

In this oasis of peace and quiet , guests can discover the rhythms of the countryside, together with that memory of smells, tastes and mental images hidden within each of us, only awaiting the right moment to spring to mind. 
You will be welcomed by Alessandro and Anna, who will be only too happy to let you take part in farmwork if you wish to, and will disclose to you the "secrets" of the land, as well as introduce you the farm's inhabitants: the cow, pigs, rabbits, the cock and his family, the ducks and pigeons... 

   

structure

 

Great care has been taken to bring back to life what was once a typical farmhouse of last century, preserving its architectural features, with its ceilings of beam and tiles, and providing furniture of the period, thus allowing guests to take a step backward in time while enjoying all the essential comforts of modern living. 

According to choice, the ANTICA FATTORIA DEL COLLE provides either rooms or mini-apartments with cooking facilities, all of which have their own entrance, own bathroom with shower, heating and all necessary linen. 

At the Fattoria, you can alternate amusement and rest (or study) with a swim in the pool on its terrace tucked between an olive grove above and the vineyard below, play bowls or go walking or riding on mountain-bikes along the little unpaved country roads. If you need more, there is also ping-pong, billiards, a well-stocked library and - for those who cannot do without - even TV. Afterwards, near our farmhouse, there is the possibility for horse riding lovers to enjoy some riding around our country-side and if necessary take lessons.

surrondings

 

Deruta is situated 20 kilometres south of Perugia on a hill that overlooks the valley of the Tiber; the new part extends along the Via Tiberina, parallel to the E45 Road which goes towards Rome. Of the ancient castle remain some tracts of wall, the arches of the three doors to the city and the characteristic medieval streets which lead into the Piazza dei Consoli , where is the Palazzo dei Consoli, today the town hall, with its l4th century tower. Opposite the town hall rises the Romanesque-Gothic Church of S. Francesco with the adjacent convent where Pope Urban IV died on October 2, 1264. The interior, made up of one nave with polygonal apse, contains numerous l4th century frescoes by the Sienese school. Especially notable on the left side of the altar is the martyrdom of St. Catherine of Alexandria (1339), protectress of Deruta's ceramicists who is celebrated on the 25th of November. 

The city is world-famous for its ceramic art, which dates back to the l3th century. But the greatest development was reached by the masters of Deruta beginning from the early 16th century. Thanks to the ever-growing fame of Deruta's ceramicists, their workshops were entrusted with the execution of the floorings of the Chapel of the Palazzo dei Priori and of the Sacristy of the Basilica of S. Pietro in Perugia, and of the Baglioni Chapel in Spello. Vaso tipico di DerutaSince then Deruta's ceramics have become famous for their decorative patterns and shapes. These vases, plates and other objects are exhibited in some of the world's greatest museums as examples of remarkable pictorial quality

In the close Regional Ceramics Museum, dated from 1998, beautiful local antique majolicas are exhibited, and the picture gallery with priceless paintings of various periods: a painting by Niccolò Alunno from 1458; an illuminated missal of the l4th century; altar-cloths of the l5th century. Furthermore, there is a fresco of the Saints Rocco and Romano with a view of the town (1476) recently attributed to Perugino.
