Property summary

  • Location:
  • Rentals run: Saturday to Saturday
My favourite thing was the swimming pool surrounded by lavender While guests use the left-most portion of the large farmhouse, visitors are welcome to wander at will throughout the well-tended grounds of the property. The nearby town of lakeside Passignano sul Trasimeno is a delightful place to explore and itself only 20 km. from Perugia. Dinner on the terrace at Castelonchio is seasoned with the beauty of a lake horizon.

A large, honey-coloured stone farmhouse in a beautiful position overlooking Italy's "inland sea" of Lake Trasimeno, Castelonchio is the realisation of an English couple's dream. These charming owners live in an independent part of the house and share their large pool and extensive grounds with discretion and friendly hospitality.

Accommodation

Completely reconstructed, with terracotta tiles, beamed ceilings and pan-tiled roofs, the apartment has spacious accommodation for six people. On the ground floor a covered portico, furnished for eating outside, opens into a modern kitchen. There is a large dining-sitting room with a music system and TV, followed by the main entrance hall with fireplace and staircase. Beyond this are a twin bedroom and a shower room. Upstairs, a double and a twin bedroom share a further shower room with a small bath. All the bedrooms have lovely brass beds and pretty linens. An external staircase, reached by a door from the double bedroom forms another pretty place to sit out with an early morning coffee or late drink to celebrate the breathtaking views of the lake.

Around Castelonchio

Trasimeno lake, with a circumference of over 45kms and depth of up to 6meters is carefully nurtured and environmentally protected. It provides not only fish, but good swimming, water sports and sailing. Ferries provide transport to the islands and guided tours of the lake. At Tuoro, less than 2kms away swimming is good from the clean, sandy beach and there are good restaurants and shops, a "Hannibal-was-here" route, a museum commemorating his defeat of the Romans with his elephants from Carthage in 217 B.C., and a not-too-good contemporary sculpture park. This whole district caters well for hikers and bikers and you can hire horses and mountain bikes with which to follow the well conceived trails. Of the many artists who have featured in its long history, perhaps the mannerist Perugino is the most famous, and his paintings may be seen in beautiful localities. Straddling Umbria and Tuscany, a stay in Castelonchio allows easy access to Florence and Rome by rail, and a myriad of fascinating places in between. Or you can simply relax and enjoy the climate, the music, food, and views from this comfortable, hospitable country house.

Staff Comments

Laura & Lyn from the London office: This house is always a delight, the rooms are clean, crisp and comfortable, the views of the lake so pretty, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the terrace always has a stunning backdrop. We enjoyed exploring the area including the lakeside town of Passignano sul Trasimeno, just a 10 minute drive from the house, where we enjoyed seafood in some new favourite restaurants. You can take boat rides to the islands or just paddle on the shore, there is something for everyone.
