About Colin Withers
We are UK based and having owned a villa in Spain were looking for something different for our retirement and our family enjoyment. We chose Italy and on visiting the Marche region were impressed with its beauty, stunning beaches, interesting sites and numerous activities. Finally the people in our village who are all so friendly.
Colin Withers purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Colin Withers chose Cossignano
We chose Casa Collina because of its stunning private location yet within walking distance of Cossignano and close to beaches. Then followed two years of conversion to provide the ideal family location which suits our needs perfectly. The infinity pool was my own creation with luxury mosaic tiles rather than pool liner and a small baby pool at the lower level. Each year we add something different with new areas in the garden.
What makes this Villa unique
With two kitchens and lounges we designed it to allow all our family to visit with the ability to have some privacy when needed but be together most of the time. We all wanted a playroom and pool and to make sure of a good sleep every night installed air con in all bedrooms--still unusual in most Italian homes but very welcome in the summer heat. We also include unlimited Free Wi Fi

A great place
After a long flight from Finland we were met by friendly Thomas and immediately settled in to this lovely house. The views were better than expected and the pool was enjoyed by us all--young and old. We hope to return some day
Wonderful stay in the country - June 2019
The villa lives up to the information provided and the location and views from the property are outstanding. The weather turned hot during our stay and the pool was a real plus. The shops, restaurants and wineries in the surrounding area were excellent and most welcoming.
What a View
We were a group of adults from Holland celebrating a special occasion and loved our stay at Casa Collina. The house had everything you may need, the views from the house and outside were fabulous and the pool--although a little cold in early May--was great to sit around. The area around is beautiful and we look forward to returning one day.
Great Villa with brilliant views
We had a great holiday in this villa. Great setting and a healthy walk into Cossignano. Not too far to a reasonable supermarket in Offida and the nearby hilltop towns are a good trip out.
The villa is well equipped and our group of nine had plenty of room. We like La Marche as it is unspoilt, so prices to eat out are very reasonable. La Fonte near Offida was good on the day of arrival as it is a big place where service was fast. We went back on our last day for the “workers lunch” and were stuffed for €12 each including wine. Loads of fish on Friday.
I would definitely recommend to family & friends.
Glad you enjoyed our villa and the area. We agree that the people of Marche are so friendly and the prices so reasonable to everyone--especially La Fonte-what a great place for a workers lunch!!
Fantastic house with incredible views
We really loved our stay at Casa Collina with its great infinity pool and everything provided. The air con was essential and kept us cool at nights and in the day we just lounged around taking in the spectacular views. Surrounding villages were great and beaches really clean although busy with Italians at this time of year. Would highly recommend
We stayed at this house as two families of four and absolutely loved it! The house is large and spacious and has everything you could possibly need. It is positioned in a quiet and peaceful location and the views are just stunning. We would have quite happily tucked ourselves away there for the full two weeks! However, visits to the surrounding villages and towns where the locals are very welcoming are a must and we were lucky enough to have (by chance!) picked the festival period to go, adding that extra bit of fun and fervour to our stay. A trip to the mountains is an hour away, the beach is about half an hour, and a visit to the local Fiorano vineyard offers wine tasting opportunities where the owners are lovely and the wine is extremely good! .. Yay! Obviously a car is a must. We have come home feeling relaxed, refreshed and longing for more! The owners, Colin and Sue have been really friendly and approachable and have offered some good advice and suggestions. Thomas, their agent, was exceptionally helpful and always on hand if needed. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. A definite 5 stars from me! We would all go back at the drop of a hat!!
