The Umbria region
Located among the hills of the Trasimeno Lake, the property offers a main-residence with three flats. There are two swimming-pool 6x12 mt., both of them with solarium. You'll even find a beautiful tennis court in synthetic grass. Nearby you can rent mountain bikes and horseback riding.
Here you'll find the opportunity to be at the cross-roads of all historic, cultural and environmental destinations of Umbria and Italy with the facility to reach the Trasimeno countries like Tuoro, Passignano sul Trasimeno, Cortona and Città della Pieve and the other wonderful cities like Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto, Orvieto, Roma, Firenze.
This region can offer, differently from the surrounding zones, all the environmental wonders and the tourist attractions that only a lake of remarkable size, such as the Trasimeno, can guarantee. It is not by chance that the most important centres of this region, such as Castiglione del Lago, Tuoro sul Trasimeno, Passignano sul Trasimeno, and Magione, rise on its rivers and also the more distant villages, such as Piegaro, Paciano or Panicale, orbit around to this important pole of economic and tourist attraction. Perhaps only Città della Pieve for the unquestionable artistic treasures, escapes this law, according to which, the interest of the traveller focuses on the waters of the greatest lake of the center of Italy . Traces of an ancient and painful history are not missing: the castles, the churches and the abbeys; the works of artists of great reputation, like those of Pietro Vannucci called the Perugino or those of Nicolò Pomarancio. For those who prefer relax in the natural surroundings, the beautiful excursions between the woods and the mountains can be suggested, from where a particular view as far as what concerns the Umbria region, can be admired.

Also the lace, which is worked in a way called "Ireland peak", has in the Isola Maggiore (the greatest island) and in the laboratory of arts panicalensis centers of great production.
