About This Listing
This small and friendly company, offers you the opportunity to experience farm holidays in the countryside and its rhythms.
Welcome to Il Vigneto, welcome to Spoleto
Il Vigneto, located at the top of the hill of Colle Marozzo, 400 mt. high, in the past has been owned by several religious orders
and was a place of rest and care for the nuns in sickness, as has always been considered a place with a dry and ventilated climate.
In the middle of '800 the house becomes part of the assets of the "Congregation of Charity".
Giovanni Battista Leonetti Luparini, agricultural engineer, at the end of the century, bought the house together with land around it, improving crops, diversifying them and entrusting the management to Scarabottini family first and then, until now, to the Marchi family, improving and increasing the production of wine and oil.
The farmhouse has kept intact its size and structure, while inside were introduced all the improvements necessary to make it suited to the new tourism and hospitality functions.
It is so continued, by grandchildren and great-grandchildren, the work of his grandfather and great-grandfather Giovanni Battista Leonetti Luparini.
We believe in a quality and strong attention to details service, in a simple and ancient athmosphere.
We love freshness and authenticity of the products of our land: with buffet breakfast you have the opportunity to rediscover the pleasure of cakes and homemade breads, a fresh egg and all those simple and genuine things.
PRICE IS 60 eUROS FOR ROOM FOR NIGHT
In the library you will find several books and a nice collection of films; every morning main newspapers arrive on time.
In the garden you can relax, sip wine and sample the delights of the barbecue. There are several routes to choose for footing or horseback riding.
At your request, you can participate in a tasting of Italian wines selected by us and our production wines:
- Bianco, white, a typical one from Spoleto area, dry, still, very full-bodied and understood in both color and flavor.
- Rosso, red: the pleasantness of Sangiovese, combined in equal measure with the aroma of a good merlot and the flavor of an elderly cabernet.
What we think about: pets? Yes! smokers? Yes! (but in the garden only please)

I've stayed at a lot of air b'n'bs now and this was by far the best. That was in part down to the usual things you look for - spacious clean room, delicious breakfast filled with homemade treats and beautiful surroundings. But it was mainly down to Stefano, the host. He is one of life's gems and it was a privilege to be his guest for a few days. He's full of warmth and goes out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you're looking for a restful few days then this the perfect spot. You can walk in to Spoleto centre in half an hour or there's a longer less direct route in which takes you on a beautiful trail. It's also worth saying that although it is a rustic setting, the farmhouse decor has a lovely understated class about it, it's very tastefully designed.
Stefano was an excellent host. His English was strong enough to communicate and to offer an excellent restaurant recommendation. The house was gorgeous; the view was even better. He was extremely hospitable (he gave us a vat of wine) and his breakfast featured some of the best café Americanos we have had all trip. Great visit in Spoleto.
Stefano greeted us warmly when we arrived at Il Vigneto. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, and a great opportunity to chat with other guests.
Words can not describe Stefeno's hospitality. As soon as we arrived he offered us a glass of wine made from the grapes on the property. And it was delicious! The property it self is stunning. Be aware that there are Mosquitos, but that didn't stop us from hanging out at the picnic tables and enjoying the view. The house it self is amazing. You can smell the fireplace as soon as you walked in the door, which made us all feel at home.
The showers we're hot and had great pressure. The beds a bit stiff for our comfort, but the silence in the night was lovely.
We needed to go into town for dinner and Stefeno recommended a great place for us call 9 cento. The food was really some of the best we've had on our trip. And the town was charming.
If we ever come through the area again we'll for sure stay back here. Highly recommend this place it's amazing!
More so Stefeno really made the experience that much more special.
Stephano did everything he could to make our stay as nice as possible. He is generous with his time and nature. Language was a little bit of a problem but his actions spoke louder than any words and we knew that we were welcome there. He booked us a restaurant on a holiday weekend and communicated our dietary requirements.
The farm is a beautiful place. The road noise was there as others have mentioned but the views were just lovely. I recommend this lovely farmhouse close to Spoleto and Assisi which were great to visit too.
We stayed for one night only. It was great value for money and breakfast was plenty and homemade jam was yummy. Location was close to town by car.
