An introduction to La Piccola

How would you describe La Piccola in a nutshell?

La Piccola is a little gem, located right outside the walls of medieval Collazzone. The building has a lot of history and has been lovingly restored with a 1960/70s Italian aesthetic. 

What is the story behind La Piccola, what was your inspiration to create it?

We are based at The Farmhouse on the outskirts of Collazzone and regularly go into town for coffee or pizza, so I would drive by the house on a daily basis. It had been in the same family for generations but was always just sitting there, closed up. 

What attracted me the most was the property's lovely garden, with terraces that are completely your own. It’s very rare to find this in the middle of a town. From the garden, you have a gorgeous view of the mountains, yet you are inside the town and within walking distance of everything you need. 

How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of La Piccola?

Similar to the atmosphere at The Farmhouse, La Piccola has a calm, spacious feeling, albeit a little funkier. There are cement and tile floors, terrazzo countertops and hand-made sinks in the bathrooms, as well as locally made iron railings. During the renovations, we created spacious showers and larger windows to let in the natural light, as well as switched up the lamps for vintage ones and added old school chairs. 

To you personally, what is so special about La Piccola?

I think La Piccola is special because you are in Collazzone but you have these terraces that make you feel like you are in the countryside. There are established plum and pomegranate trees around the pool and you can pick the fruit in season. 

To me, it’s important that these towns thrive. From the local pizzeria to the bar where you can get your espresso in the morning — all of these things depend on having people visit them. I think the locals love seeing people visit and our guests love the local experience.

La Piccola rooms & rates

You enter La Piccola through a handmade iron door that opens into a high-ceilinged space. To the left are a sitting room and a sunken living room that looks out onto the terrace. 

A set of stairs leads to the first floor, which has an eat-in, metal kitchen with chestnut beams and old walls. Across from the kitchen is a bedroom and a bathroom. On the second floor is a little laundry room, plus another bedroom and a bathroom. Both of the bedrooms are the same size, with one configured with a queen bed and the other with two singles. 

Outside is a large terrace with a pergola and an outdoor kitchen equipped with a grill and fridge, plus a table and chairs that serve as a summer dining room. Stairs lead down to another terrace where there is a heated swimming pool, which is surrounded by lounge chairs and offers plenty of privacy. Both terraces have beautiful views across the surrounding olive groves and toward the Apennines, which are covered in snow in the winter.

I would definitely recommend visiting Assisi and its Basilica of St. Francis — it’s something everyone talks about. Montefalco has an incredible museum where you can see 14th-century frescoes up close while Todi is another highlight and home to the Church of San Fortunato. It’s medieval but almost modern, with all-white travertines and alabaster windows.

The location of La Piccola

La Piccola is located in Collazzone and is around 10 minutes’ drive from The Farmhouse. Guests are welcome to taste wine at our cantina and we always leave them some of our organic olive oil and wine. 

Collazzone is a medieval town that’s home to roughly 500 people and centres around the Church of San Lorenzo. It has three towers and flower-filled cobblestone streets — it’s a classic Umbrian hill town with a low-key, slow lifestyle. 

Collazzone is around 20 minutes’ drive from Todi and 30 minutes from Montefalco while Assisi is roughly 40 minutes away. Most of our guests go out in the daytime to explore and have lunch somewhere, then return to Collazzone in the evening. The trattoria in town is within walking distance and is a great place to eat — we go there a lot!

When is the best time to visit Umbria?

Spring is beautiful with the poppies in the field and the wisteria in bloom. Summer is slow-paced and there is always a feast in some little village with a late-night dinner set up. Fall coincides with the grape and olive harvest, so it’s great to see the olives being crushed and do an olive tasting (from October).
