In the years to come, there was also a shoemaker, a grocery store, a barn and a cellar.

With time, a large family was born in this small hill of Tuscany!

Years later, in both world wars, the sheltered cottage people escaping from the big neighbor countries;

In 1960 the economic boom and the great emigration to the cities left the house uninhabited.

In 1996, two young lovers, Cristiano Fabrizi and Manuela Lazzerini, the latter descendants of the old family, began a lengthy renovation work that ended in 2013.

Charming Villa in Umbrian Countryside

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks touring Italy starting with Rome then the Amalfi Coast. We ended our stay at Villa Cozzano. We were amazed by the beautiful scenery, the setting of the villa and the relaxed atmosphere Manuel provided. The villa had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped as we ended up cooking a few times. Manuel was attentive to our needs as guests. The location is great for day trips to nearby cities and towns. A perfect spot to end your day by the pool sipping a glass of the wine made right on site! We highly recommend staying at Villa Cozzano.

Absolutely wonderful, cannot say enough good things about it.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the great pleasure of staying with Cristiano and his family during the last week of September. We were toured northern Italy for a month and stayed in many wonderful places, and Cristiano’s was our favorite. The apartment was impeccable, the furnishings and artwork were so very Tuscany, the sheets crisp, the bed extremely comfortable, the grounds were lovely, the views stunning, sunrises and sunsets took our breath away and it was oh so very quiet-a wonderful respite from the cities we visited. Walking through the adjacent vineyard and olive trees was an absolute delight. If you plan to spend any time in the Tuscany countryside then Villa Cozzano is an absolute must, it is truly a gem!

Traumhaft schön auch ohne Luxus

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten sehr sonnige und geruhsame Tage in Umbrien/südliche Toskana.

Mit unserer Ferienwohnung für 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder (8/10) waren wir sehr zufrieden. Der Service durch Manuel war spitze. Familiäre Atmosphäre ohne Schnik-schnak. Der Pool war immer sauber und die Anlage mit Ihren einzelnen Wohnungen traumhaft.

Die Ausstattung der Küche war absolut ausreichend (kein Luxus) und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Poolhandtücher können geliehen werden oder mitbringen. Einkaufen in Pozzuolo und anschließendes Frühstücken auf der Terrasse waren ein Genuss. Ausflüge nach Monepulciano und Perugia runden den Aufenthalt ab.

Wir werden sicher wieder kommen.
