The Tuscany region
Lake Trasimeno is a short drive over the hills, passing through the battlefield where Hannibal defeated the Roman army. There are beaches, and boats out to the islands.
You are just 15 minutes from Cortona, a fabulous Renaissance hill town with the famous Fra Angelico Triptych and of course a selection of paintings by Pietro da Cortona. There are also many Etruscan tombs in the area.
Arezzo, with its Piero della Francesca frescos is less that 50km away, and Florence is an hour and a half.
Perugia is 45 km away and Assisi just beyond.
The whole of Umbria is within easy reach, as well as Tuscany. And you can visit Rome for the day.
Mercatale di Cortona
Just on the border of Tuscany, Pilari is an old 'Borgo' only a short walk from the small market town of Mercatale di Cortona which has a selection of shops, two banks with cashpoint machines, two supermarkets, three bars, a chemist, a post office, restaurant and other services.
The road on from Mercatale winds upwards through lovely countryside and you have stunning views of Lake Trasimeno and its islands.
About The Farm
Hi, my name is Vanni and with my wife Diletta and my mother Maria, I manage this agriturismo. The farm "Pilari" is situated in the Val di Pierle and its 48 hectares is divided into areas growing maize, sunflowers, wheat, an olive grove, a little vineyard and wood.
A few years ago we also produced Tabacco for cigarettes, this plant being very important for the valley economy in the past.
The most important products that we produce are red wine and olive oil that you can taste in our azienda.
