San Giovanny Country house is an intimate and cosy country house, immersed in a wonderful and natural park, placed in the very heart of Umbria, on top of the hills of a village called Collazzone, beautifully located between Perugia and Todi, overlooking a splendid valley.
Born from a rural farm house, carefully and elegantly restored, the building is covered in natural light and colours thank to its wide windows and large terraces where you can enjoy a lovely view among vineyards, olive trees, cypresses, where time is provided its rhythm by the bell’s chimes, the sun rising and the stars shining.
The Agriturismo San Giovanni Al Monte is born out of a passion, a passion for my countryside, for my village, Collazzone, tiny but rich in history and stories to be told. Rich in Saints, cradle of San Jacopone’s lauds, rich in wonderful landscapes and in traditions that never change throughout time.
The place will let you “taste” the tranquillity of a landscape that only Umbria can make you experience and takes its name from the Medieval Church of the Knights Templars,known also as St. John’s knights, built on this hilltop, but destroyed in the past centuries and used by the local farmers as raw materials for their homes, right here in San Giovanni.
From San Giovanni Agriturismo, it is easy and pleasant to reach, through thousands of walking paths and country roads, less known, but equally beautiful villages like Bevagna, Montefalco, Deruta, aiming to a holiday between art, nature and culture.
We do not have a wellness centre,
we are immersed in a wellness centre:
the green, the fresh, clean, air, the landscape.
We do not provide entertainment,
geese, dogs and cats will entertain you.
You will not find a concierge, here, but someone
Always eager to be of help.
In case of specific requests,
we shall serve Tuscan wines,
But before that, we shall have
you tasted the wine produced
By the local, small in production
while great in quality, Umbria cellars.
Luxury, precious pieces of furniture and a
5 stars service, are to be left to hotels.
Here you will not be welcomed as clients,
but guests and in time, hopefully like friends.
For you who look for simplicity, tradition, love
for nature and a true passion for hospitality,
San Giovanni al Monte is your place.
