This fairy tale medieval castle, once property of the notorious Borgia family, is exceptionally well situated on the borders of Tuscany and Umbria on the shore of the lake Trasimeno.
Today, after many centuries of history, it appears in its present form, imposing stone facade with one tall tower, Renaissance arches, cross vaulted ceilings, large stone fireplaces, lovely flooring of oak parquet or terracotta. In the last two years the owner renovated some areas inside the castle such as bathrooms and two bedrooms. The castle is situated in a fenced off park of 9 acres, abundant of secular trees, flower beds, and beautiful plants. There is a big swimming pool and a tennis court.
The castle interiors, decorated with splendid frescos, are very tastefully furnished with elegant and valuable pieces of furniture. This exclusive atmosphere represents a unique experience. In the serene countryside, where the stillness is punctuated only by the sounds of wild birds and the cicadas, it is hard to imagine that Hannibal celebrated his great victory over Rome on the shores below.
It is the ideal location for relaxing and visiting the enchanting villages of Umbria: Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Todi, Spoleto and Gubbio. Tuscany is right next door, starting with the village of Cortona, making it ideal for experiencing the wonders of Italian cooking and wines. Italians come to the resort village of Passignano, situated below Il Borgia, for its charming lakefront embarcadero where restaurants line the shore and ferries take visitors to the interesting islands dotting the lake. This provides an ideal location for guests to blend with the locals and enjoy Italy's most charming roots like a native.
