Description from manager

The legendary sweetness of the Umbrian hills frames villa Thadea, just like a nineteenth century painting. This villa is located on a 5 minute walk from the village of Collazzone, situated between Perugia and Todi. With its own park of 3000 square meters, on which a hundred olive trees shine, this extraordinary house has a long history to tell, centered on spirituality already since 1200, when it was a monastery and refuge of Simone Beato, companion of San Francesco. During the following centuries it was transformed into a convent. Around 1800 the property passed onto the current owners when Napoleon Bonaparte confiscated church properties to sell them to private individuals. Today, the great grandson has been able to restore the villa preserving all the original aspects, enriching it with materials and details inspired by the Umbrian countryside, transforming it into a splendid villa for fourteen guests, with private swimming pool and air conditioning.

Thadea consists of a main villa and a guest house, both with independent access, but connected by stone walls with an open air courtyard in the center, a very attractive environment for dining outdoors by candle lights even during mid season, as the walls protect from the coolness during the evenings. From this courtyard you can access the main villa on one side and a spacious, rustic room suitable for weddings or parties on the other side. It seems that in the past, this room was a place of refuge for pilgrims.

The villa has several outdoor areas where to dine; the most convenient one is situated in front of the large kitchen of the main villa, where a table for 10 guests and the barbeque are protected by a ceiling shaded by a rich vegetation of wisteria. The garden has an area apparently untidy, an aspect very similar to the English gardens, very much appreciated and well integrated in the context of the property. The swimming pool area is completed with an outdoor kitchen and provides a perfect spot for lunches. Thadea is the ideal location for a family or friend reunion. It is also ideal for couples wanting to celebrate events or weddings surrounded by a small group of family and friends.

The courtyard and a separate spacious room with fireplace can accommodate up to 80 guests for dinners indoor, and the olive orchard is ideal for night table setting with lanterns and candle lighting. During high season, it is wonderful just to lounge by the pool, enjoying the heat, the sun, and the cicadas while sipping a cocktail in the refreshing water. The outdoor kitchen by the pool makes it easy to prepare light meals without having to go inside. At night it is nice to BBQ in the garden next to the fig tree or enjoy one of the many restaurants the surrounding area has to offer.
