My partner and I stayed one night in an apartment for our anniversary: the residence is a magical place, surrounded by green Umbrian countryside, yet just a few kilometers away from Perugia. As you enter the courtyard you go back to the past, as the atmosphere just as the renovation work is excellent in every aspect and in every corner of the buildings, everything has been finely restored or made even more superb. The apartment is a gem, with all comfort and hospitality offered by Luigi and Francesca, who made us feel like family. Being a wedding planner, I had the pleasure to visit the place for potential future weddings or events: absolutely recommended !!!!!!! I often found apparently attractive locations for weddings, but then with my professional eye I notice that very often the service offered, the support provided by the owners and the spaces available for the guests is not satisfactory.
At Borgo Colognola you can be sure that each space is there to be lived, and independently from the numbers of guests attending the celebrations the place is perfectly suitable to everyone because this location has a special charm, from the cellars, to the reception rooms and the large outdoor spaces: each space suggests a setting from the “mise en place”, to the candy bar the cutting of the cake. Thanks to Luigi and Francesca for having revived an enchanted and enchanting place as Borgo Colognola!
The residence is wonderful and well cared for, a real “dream box”. We had no doubt from the beginning, Borgo Colognola would have “fulfilled our wedding dream”! The collaboration with Luigi and Francesca, the owners of the place, has made our dream come true!

The residence with its atmosphere is so engaging, as detached from everyday reality, it was love at first sight. In particular, we were fascinated by its countless scenarios, both indoors and outdoors, offering a wide range of organizational solutions and always fascinating. The owners have distinguished themselves both for their professionalism and for their willingness to meet all our requirements. We highly recommend this location to all those who wish to set their wedding in a different context, free of artifacts, and just entirely authentic.

Borgo Colognola is a fantastic location to celebrate a wedding. It feels magical both by day and by night, both outside and in the elegant reception rooms. The owners were most helpful, always ready to solve our upcoming problems and to advise how to take advantage of the residence in the best possible way, according to different needs. They have been follow the wedding from start to finish and at the same time giving great freedom of choice. Professional and honest. They made my wedding unique. I firmly believe that Borgo Colognola is the most beautiful place, elegant, distinctive and versatile for a wedding. My guests were thrilled! It’s so beautiful!

Well done, really well done! Francesca and Luigi are lovely people, ready to give timely and useful tips for the success of the ceremony and banquet. I have hired the entire structure (it is huge) that can accommodate almost fifty people for spending the night there. The Borgo gives a lot to any ceremony, completed with lots of space, it is a constant surprise for the guests. Nestling in the Umbrian hills I could not have wished for better. Also WI-FI was free for all guests and the owners were available all the time.

A magical place, an atmosphere of ancient times. Everything is perfect: the square, the garden, the reception rooms, large and comfortable guest apartments and, nevertheless, the total availability of the owners. I recommend it to those who love the authenticity and charm of a very old residence, nestled in the beautiful Umbrian countryside.

Borgo Colognola is a beautiful location, I fell in love with it the first time I have seen it and that proved perfect to celebrate our wedding day! We have chosen to make the most of all the spaces of the village, especially the outside spaces. In fact we organized the appetizer and the dessert in the garden, where the fantastic and authentic view of the Umbrian hills has totally amazed our guests. The garden is very spacious, so all of our 180 guests were comfortable moving between the buffet and / or sit without any confusion, they cheered for more live music that also had its own space. In addition, the garden is well shaded by plants and the structure and the climate is never too hot in summer, due to the hillside position.
The lunch was held in the reception room on the top floor, very nice and well furnished. We liked the fact that although it was a very large wedding, we could all stay in a room without creating a dispersive environment, but on the other hand very intimate feeling! The evening continued outside on the square of the residence, with pizza, open bar, DJ sets and dancing! The square is a perfect place for the “second part” of the wedding celebrations, less informal and very busy! There was enough room for tables and chairs but also enough to dance and, very importantly, the flooring is such that you can dance without the need to set up a platform! It was also great to have the pizza cooked in the huge wood oven, just outside the building!
In addition, about 30 of our guests have spent two nights in the apartments of the residence, they were enthusiastic. Finally, it was very helpful for us to have some external annex of the village during the organizational phase previous to the wedding.
Ultimately, we were absolutely satisfied and happy with this place, which has greatly contributed to making our wedding perfect!

I have been in this charming place in July, for a party organized by the owners.
The evening was pleasant and very well organized: food, drinks, live music and fireworks!
The thing that struck me most was the warm and intimate ambiance that reigns in this residence, despite there were many people. Although you are just minutes away from the city, it is like being in an enchanted place…
My husband and I, coming from outside Perugia, had booked for the night and we did very well: a beautiful apartment, like a few times I was able to find in other places, in fact often websites show great pictures, but then that does not correspond to reality once you are there.
The next morning I asked the owner to take a tour of the residence and surroundings, I was thrilled! That’s a shame I am already married, otherwise I would have held my reception here!
