The former farmhouse has been lovingly converted into charming and comfortable apartments retaining original features such as terracotta floors. Each apartment is fully independent, tastefully furnished and well equipped. The house has full central heating.

“Il Palazzo” is an old farmhouse built in 1700, restored with taste, which offers to it's guests panoramic and completely autonomous apartments.

Lake Trasimeno is a 10-15 minute drive away, and has sandy beaches which are rarely crowded. This part of Umbria is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty so development around the lake in this part of Italy is severely restricted. Lake Trasimeno is famous as the site of the resounding victory of Hannibal over the Romans in 217 BC on its northern shores. It is right in the heart of one of the richest areas in the world for history, art and culture. Within a two hour drive you can see a substantial part of the world's artistic heritage including ancient, medieval and Italian Renaissance art. There are also a wealth of cultural and folklore events around the lake. There are three artistic and environmental trails – Perugino and the Umbrian School in the 15th and 16th centuries; the sancturies of the Trasimeno area; and the artistic appreciation of the della Corgna (details from local tourist information offices).

Our guests can also take advantage of the excellent restaurant at a modest price, requiring half or full board.

Gianna, our chef, offers seasonal dishes in the Tuscan-Umbrian-Sardinian tradition cooking with organic products of our family farm where cattle are bred and vegetables and fruits cultivated.
