About the property

La Fatta art-house b&b

La Fratta is an ideal choice for anyone who wants to spend a holiday in Umbria and, at the same time, have an experience in pottery. Courses are organized at different levels, according to the participants’ ability. Groups are generally small in order to keep the right balance between relaxation and work. Even if you have never worked with clay before, you will be able to create your own work of art, starting with the construction of a form up to the final firing. If you already have experience in ceramic art, we offer you the opportunity of attending proficiency courses (modelling, throwing wheel) and learning new firing techniques (raku, naked raku, bucchero, etc.).

Why Elisabetta Corrao chose Umbria

The farmhouse is immersed in the natural beauty of the Marsciano countryside (near Perugia) and during its restructuring the owners were determined to maintain the simplicity and originality typical of the country houses in the area. Therefore, they used mostly salvaged materials as well as decorative and practical elements that were designed and produced by them, mainly in raku pottery. Their residence is on the first floor while the old stable was made into a large workshop and art studio next to which there is a permanent showroom. For our guests there are bedrooms with bathrooms and spacious common rooms, including a library that is well stocked with art books and guide books of Umbria. Outside there is only green and tranquillity. Immersed in the Umbrian countryside, this country house hosts painting and ceramics courses. It offer rooms and apartments set in a large garden with terraces and sun beds. Marsciano is 7 km away. All accommodation at La Fratta Art has a mix of rustic and contemporary décor, with terracotta floors and ceramic fittings. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Swimming pool in the garden.

Nice villa located in the center of Umbria

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is located in the center of Umbria - in a perfect location for a 30-60 minutes drive from most of Umbria attractions, near a small town Marsciano...the house is located in country region which gives youa nice nature/agriculture atmosphere of the local region ...nice restaurants in the area and 15 min a local Supermarket nearby.

The owners were very friendly and warm, the husband is actually a ceramic artist and we have bought nice art pieces from his work.

On our arrival, the owner has already placed few food essentials in the kitchen, which helped a lot.

A great place for families with kids...a pool in the summer, dogs and cats to play with...but also for couples.

Would recommend to upgrade the kitchenin the house.

Highly recommended, enjoy your stay.

The wonderful place was made even better through the hospitality and kindness of our hosts, Elisabetta and Luca. Situated in the middle of trees and beautiful plants, Lucas art made it even more special and beautiful. This is a place we plan to come back to. Additionally it is situated ideally in the heart of Umbria, reaching interesting sites thus is easy.

The appartment was perfect, and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Elisabetta and Luca gave us great ideal and tips about places to visit and events to attend, a ceramics course with Luca is certainly recommended. Great thanks to both of them!

Ein sehr sehr schöne, einzigartige Unterkunft mit sehr netten Vermietern.

  • 5 of 5

La Fratta Art House ist eine Unterkunft mit ganz besonderem Ambiente. Überall auf dem Grundstück und in der Wohnung trifft man auf die wunderschönen Keramiken von Luca dem Vermieter. Elisabeta und Luca sind sehr nette, freundliche Vermieter. Sie bemühen sich sehr dem Gast alle Wünsche zu erfüllen.

Gerne kommen wir wieder und machen dann auch bei Luca einen Töpferkurs.

Rundherum eine sehr schöne Unterkunft in wunderschöner Landschaft, zum Erholen perfekt.

Svago. real e cultura!

  • 5 of 5

Sono partita con l'idea di fare un semplice corso di ceramica nella campagna Umbra.

Mi sono ritrovata in un posto incantevole inmerso in un bellissimo paesaggio umbro accolta da ottimi padroni di casa che, da subito mi hanno fatto sentire un ospite gradito.

Sono persone molto sensibili e rispettose degli spazi e necessità degli ospiti. Disponibili e professionali.

La casa arredata con gusto e circondata da un giardino incantevole è la perfetta cornice per le opere d'arte che l'abitano.

Che dire del corso, fare una esperienza con un Maestro ceramista da tutto un altro significato all'incontro con l'argilla e scava nel profondo per scoprire il senso della passione per questa "nobile" materia, l'argilla.

Car: recommended

10 minutes from the main motorway (E45). Paved road. 100mt. finals passable dirt road. The property is easily accessible from the connections and at the same time is in a secluded location.

Close to the most important art centers of Umbria, we always like to advise our guests alternative routes that allow to discover the natural and artistic beauty of the region through routes not usual and live as quiet walks. And 'it recommended the car but if you come by train trips are possible by train. We remember some events in Perugia and Spoleto (Umbria Jazz, Festival of Two Worlds); The Gaite of Bevagna or more. In some periods of the year we organize special events in the structure by inviting other artists or recommend special events taking place in the surrounding area.
