The Umbria region

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.

Magione

The islands and the cities of the Lake Trasimeno are perfectly connected through several shipping lines. From any point you go on board, there's the possibility to visit many sites of artistic, historical, cultural and scientific interest.

ISOLA MAGGIORE: Rock of St. Francis Itinerary of the Jubileum.

CASTIGLIONE DEL LAGO: The Lion Fortress, Della Corgna-Palace

ISOLA POLVESE: The remains of the Fortress, the Church and the Abbey from the XII Century, Scientific and Educational Park

PASSIGNANO SUL TRASIMENO: Church of Madonna dell'olivo from the XVI Century, Church of S. Vito from the XII Century.

MAGIONE: The Castle of the Knights of Malta from the XV Century

SAN FELICIANO: Naturalistic Oasis "La Valle", The Fishing Museum

TUORO SUL TRASIMENO: Permanent Documentation Centre of the Battle of Trasimeno and historic-archaeological trial of the battle Field of the Sun: Open museum of contemporary and international sculpted columns.

Handicraft and Typical products

In the villages of the Trasimeno lake region it is still possible to find craftsmen dedicating with passion and according to tradition to the working of the metals. The struck iron, as an example, is used at City of the Pieve in order to realize splendid reproductions of ancient crews, while the way copper is worked, is a characteristic of the town of Magione. 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. For what concerns the cuisine, beyond appreciating the wine of the hills of the Trasimeno, it is possible to taste the typical plates of the zone, obviously all made up of lake-fish. The carps are cooked in the firewood furnace following the same procedure used to cook the pork based plate called "Regina in porchetta ", while for "tegamaccio ", a kind of fish soup, all the fishes of the lake are boiled on olive oil, aromatic grass and wine white.

The weather in our area and in the property is pretty good all the year: wonderful and quite windy summer and sometimes snow in winter.
