PRIVATE STRUCTURE As can be seen from the date still perfectly visible on one of the wooden beams in the living room, Villa Primaluce was built in 1762 on the remains of an old watchtower dating back to the year 1000. The present owners, through careful renovation work, have brought back to light the splendour of the authentic stone walls and floors of that period, maintaining and salvaging where possible the original materials with the aim of preserving the authenticity of this place but at the same time adding all mod cons. This can be seen from the well-equipped kitchen, from the living area with comfortable leather sofas set around the antique fireplace and from the early 20th century furniture in the living rooms and airy bedrooms. A house full of pathos which, from its high position, offers unequalled scenery. The villa, the private pool, the fitness room and the many set up areas in the garden all face Lake Trasimeno and a unique territory in which art, nature and excellent cuisine meet. We are in the comune of Passignano sul Trasimeno with bars, supermarkets, services and restaurants facing the beaches of the lake, an area well served by excellent roads and railway stations, making it easy to visit the most beautiful places in Umbria and Tuscany. Castiglione del Lago, Perugia, Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano, Assisi and many other famous places are all within easy reach. The owners' house also stands within the property but they are very discreet and will not disturb the guests w have exclusive use of the park and pool.
The house has two floors connected internally, both with separate access from the garden. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into the living area with large living room with dining area and kitchen. On this floor are also a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. Both the kitchen and the dining area have French windows that lead out to the external dining area whilst the double bedroom has a French window leading out to the furnished portico. From the living room a stone staircase leads up to the first floor consisting of a TV room, with access from the outside through the second entrance, a double bedroom with adjacent bathroom with shower, a double bedroom with divisible bed and bathroom with shower opposite it and a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with tub and separate shower. The TV room leads out to the panoramic terrace.
Standing in a property of 11000 sq m of olive trees and woodland, Villa Primaluce has a garden of about 500 sq m extending over several terraces, with a vast variety of plants, offering guests the possibility of really enjoying life in the open air. In fact there are many set-up areas: from the terrace overlooking the lake provided with sofa and armchairs under the shade of a pergola to the delightful portico, from the fitness room with sauna and gym equipment to the childrens' grassy play area, everything has been thought out for giving guests enjoyment and relaxation. There are two outdoor eating areas, one next to the kitchen French window with table and umbrella and the other, not far away, with long tables and brick-built barbecue, both ideal for dining with family and friends. Laurel hedges and low stone walls delimit the various areas, surrounded by a luxuriant vegetation made up of pines, oaks, fig trees, bushes of lavender and rosemary, roses, petunias, perfumed climbing plants, oleanders and potted flowers. The property also has a gravel parking area a few metres from the house and a laundry. Finally, just outside the main gate are various paths winding through the woods, perfect for hiking or mountain biking.
The pool is set in a fabulous panoramic position on the highest terracing in the property, higher even than the house which is 20 m away and can be reached through the parking area, up a flight of steps. Rectangular-shaped, it measures 6 x 12 m with the depth varying from 1.50 to 2.50 m.
