Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Villa Forconi is situated on a ridge above Lake Trasimeno, the nearest town is the pretty lakeside town of Tuoro sul Trasimeno below the town is a beach and resort area with trampolines, pedaloes, ferries to the lake islands and sunbeds and umbrella s for hire. There is good access here to main roads connecting with the towns of Tuscany and Umbria. Beautiful medieval walled Cortona in Tuscany is a 30 minute drive as are Perugia and Castiglione del Lago, Siena is 45 minutes as are Assisi, Montepulciano and Arezzo. A little further are Florence, Deruta, Todi and Orvieto. May and June are good months for wild flowers. The temperatures are hot in July until mid-August usually but because of its altitude the night times are always pleasant at Villa Forconi. The train station at Terontola-Cortona - 15 minutes drive has direct trains to Florence and Rome.

Lisciano Niccone

Villa Forconi has a wonderful position close to the border of Tuscany and Umbria. The house is surrounded with woodland and the in the valleys below are wildflowers and crops of chiefly sunflowers and maize. The nearest town is Tuoro where there are shops and restaurants. There is a trattoria at about 5km before you reach the main road.

“marvelous place”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2013

Villa Forconi is a wonderful place. We have stayed there together with our two children (11 and 8 years) and we really enjoyed our stay. The villa is extremely comfortable, it lacks really nothing and is very tastefully decorated, extraordinary class for a holiday villa. The House is a bit away from the village, but thereby you also enjoy absolute peace and privacy. The villa is also very well located to do several excursions within Umbria and Tuscany. We will definitively return !

“Outstanding”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2013

This is a first rate villa. The villa has all of the amenities, is wonderfully decorated and has tremendous views. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a luxury villa experience.

“Not Your Average Italian Rental Property”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

We stayed at Villa Forconi for a week in July and found it ideal for our young family. Having rented several properties within the region in previous years we can say that this was by far the best. The property is furnished and equipped as if it is a home and not a rental. This makes all the difference. Fantastic private location, good accommodation, immaculately clean and a great pool (if a little cool early in the season!). There is a large supermarket within a 10 minute drive and a great restaurant at the end of the lane - 5 minute drive. Thoroughly recommended.
