The Agriturismo Colli Martani, located in Vocabolo Scanzano, near Massa Martana, Umbria, is an old country building established in the late 1800s and renovated over the years with additions to accommodate all the activities of a farm: vines for winemaking, olive trees and barn animals. Over the past two decades the farmhouse has been completely discontinued and with it the farming activities. The new owners’ aim, in 2016, was to renovate it to make it the headquarters of the non-profit organization “Casa Ilaria,” in order to accommodate groups of children from poor families by offering them at least six weeks of free educational vacations per year. They decided to invest not only in the development of agricultural activities but also in non-agricultural activities to fund this initiative. The renovation, with emphasis on eco-sustainability and environmental protection, preserved the atmosphere and charm of traditional dwellings in this region, while ensuring all modern comforts, such as air conditioning and free wi-fi. Far from the city hustle and bustle amidst the lush green landscape, you will discover a cozy haven to rejuvenate and restore your natural balance: the property offers 9 double rooms – 4 Basic of 30 m2, 3 Deluxe of 35 m2, 2 Premium of 50 m2 -, spacious and comfortable, with private bathroom, furnished with taste and refinement.
