Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Castiglione del Lago - Casa Cantagallina
Large villa sleeping 12 in great comfort, large garden and pool, great views
Casa Cantagallina is a large farmhouse, dating back to the 19th Century, situated in small hamlet located between Chiusi and Lake Trasimeno.
It is a beautiful Villa, built on three floors and restored by the current owners to be a spacious and comfortable family home. They have used mostly original materials and therefore preserved the character of the property while also introducing many modern luxuries including a large contemporary kitchen.
Each floor has been designed to be self sufficient and the owners added large living areas to each floor. This makes the villa the perfect property for large groups of friends or families, ensuring everyone has their own space.
Each floor can be closed off and so if required the property can be rented by a smaller group.
There are stunning views from all parts of the property, looking over Lake Trasimeno and down to the surrounding valleys.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our second time at Cantagallina and we intend to go back again. A huge and beautiful house, garden and pool that offers complete tranquility. We love being able to mix the sense of peace and space at the house with the culture, architecture and food offered in towns like Assisi, Perugia and Orvieto - which are all within easy reach. Blissful."
