Villa Gelso is a rustic villa only a short distance from Lake Trasimeno. It is situated at the border between Tuscany and Umbria, two of the Italian regions most visited for their natural beauty.

The villa is a beautiful, independent, rectangular stone house with gentle arches on the ground floor.

Built entirely of local stone, the house is in a wonderful position dominating the surrounding countryside which is characterized by olive groves. Lake Trasimeno is at a distance of about 4 Km.

The nearest village, Agello, which has shops, a bar, a gas station and a pharmacy, is only about 1 Km away. Agello is a hamlet of the town of Magione, in the province of Perugia, in Umbria, the region known as the green heart of Italy. Agello is a small panoramic village at an elevation of 1,200 feet, commanding a spectacular view of the rolling hills south-east of Lake Trasimeno and of the Apennine mountains beyond them.

The house is located within easy reach of major historic cities. Perugia is 20 km away, Assisi 30 km. It is 98 km to Siena, 155 km to Firenze, and 170 km to Roma. Golf and an Outlet Village are 30 minutes from the house.

Exquisitely furnished, the Villa combines the typical Umbrian ambience of wood beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and yellow walls with modern amenities. The Villa offers telephone with Internet access, satellite TV, DVD and stereo system. There is air conditioning in the whole house and heating that is payable on consumption, along with firewood.

Maid service and dinners are available on request during the week.

The main entrance of the house is below a big arch leading to the old bread baking room where the ancient wood oven is still used for making bread and pizza.

On the ground floor there is a dining room with fireplace. The room opens onto a terrace with a pergola offering a panoramic view over a little nearby lake.

The lovely kitchen is well equipped with a 4-burner stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and an Italian coffee machine. Nearby is a utility room with washing machine and ironing corner.

Through an arch from the dining room there is a spacious living room.

There are two stairways to the upper floor, one external and one internal, both leading to the second living room which has a T.V. corner with satellite TV, stereo with C.D. , D.V.D player and internet connection.

To the right of this living room there is a particular bedroom comparable to a hotel suite. On the entry level is a pleasant private living room with double sofa-bed and a bathroom with a shower. Wooden stairs lead up to an open gallery where a romantic double bed and an antique bath tub give this room an alluring atmosphere.

From the T.V. room a long corridor extends with 5 spacious double bedrooms, each with private bath. One is a twin- bedded room with bath with shower, 2 are double bedrooms with a queen-sized bed (that can be separated) and bath with shower, and the last 2 are double bedrooms with queen-sized bed and bath with tub.

Each tastefully decorated room is designed to maximize the character of the original architecture; two of them have a canopy-bed.

Each bathroom is equipped with a hair-dryer .

About this location

The Umbria region

Italy is a wonderful country that combines stunningly landscape with unique culture. From it's modern cities to its classic

countryside there is such a variety of wondrous things to see and do. Italy's unique culture stems from its history of being many individual states/provinces.

The countries shape means that the coast is easily accessible from practically anywhere in the country.


There are many fantastic things to do in the

local area. As well as all the normal tourist activities available there is a plethora of historical churches/monasteries that are well worth a visit. A trip here

would not be complete without sampling some of the delicious local food and, of course, the wine.
