Beautiful hilltop sanctuary
My husband and I stayed for a week, and only wished it was longer! This property is divine, the views are magnificent, its design is tasteful and the layout is open, inviting and clean. It has all the conveniences one could hope for. Dining on the outdoor patio is a must. Shopping and dining in the village and mingling with the friendly locals is a treat. Best is its location- easy access to all of Umbria and Tuscany. And Lake Passignano is not to be missed.
This is still relatively undiscovered country versus the overrun touristed towns. Go!
Serene, great view, convenient to historical towns
The house feels like a home away-from-home. A place to kick back after a long day of sight seeing. It is in the forest but has a clear view of beautiful Lake Trasimeno, One hears lots of bird song, but no sounds of civilization, except a rare car. Yes, there is good internet service.
Everything was very clean and well maintained. We felt fine using all the dishes right off the shelf. The kitchen is small, but just fine for preparing an al fresco meal to be eaten on the patio right outside, or a dinner to be eaten at the dining table inside.
The weather was cold and rainy when we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the separate summer kitchen or the pool. But we would like to one day!
It was easy to make arrangements with the owners, who answered all of our questions.
You will need a car, on the smaller side, to get up the mountain to this retreat.
But with this car you can go to so many historical towns for the day, like Assisi, Siena, and Arrezo (which has an amazing flea market).
The small town of Passignano is the closest to this house, and is right on the lake. You can have a meal there in one of several good restaurants, or just get an espresso on your way out of town.
I would definitely recommend this house to friends or relatives, and I recommend it to myself to return one day!
Thank you! Your review is greatly appreciated! Please come again.
A little piece of paradise!
A fabulous place to stay!
I stayed in this lovely house for one week with my two daughters (aged 15 and 10).
Its location is superb - nestled in the hills above Passignano sul Trasimeno with fantastic views of Lago Trasimeno and its islands. It's tranquil and beautiful.
We found the facilities to be perfect for our stay. Wifi (important for 15-year-old daughters!); a choice of lovely places to sit and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner; and a pool. The house and gardens are very clean and well-maintained.
Communications with the owners in advance were very good; we were met outside Passignano by Elena, the very competent and friendly property manager, who showed us up to the house.
We managed day trips to Rome (from Terontola station - go in advance to book your tickets in person, it's much easier), Cortona and Isola Maggiore. But we were equally happy lounging around the house and pool.
I strongly recommend this house! It would suit a family or, equally, a couple on a romantic break.
Family with 3 teenagers
A big House with adequate swimming pool and yard and very nice views. Air conditioning would be a nice plus because temperature was high during nights also. The local contact person was extremely helpful and nice person.
The town Passignano has many restaurants and other services. We also visited Cortona several times. The road to the premise is in bad shape but a normal family car can manage with that.
Finally some peace!
I enjoyed the peace and quiet, and the lovely town. Not to mention the gorgeous lake view, and the easy train ride to Rome. Truly a bit of heaven.
A wonderful vacation spot!
This place has it all for the traveler who wants serenity, location and comfort. The place itself is well furnished and well suited to relaxing and savoring the countryside. The surrounding area of Umbria is a treasure trove of great places to visit, but access to Tuscany and Rome is not difficult.
We stayed for a week and would certainly return -- we loved breakfast on the terrace, wonderful views from the gazebo, the gracious grounds. The owners are helpful and easy to work with. This is a great price for the quality and the amenities that are included.
