Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Castiglione del Lago, Umbria, Italy your home away from home

Located on the shores of the magnificent Lake Trasimeno in Perugia Province, Umbria, Castiglione del Lago is a wonderful place to stay in Italy. The historical centre of the city is beautifully preserved, offering many magnificent medieval sites for visitors. Its cuisine and culture have strong connections to both Tuscany and Umbria, and due to its enviable combination of ease of access and secluded location, very few visitors can refrain from returning to their Castiglione del Lago holiday home year after year.

Things to do on holiday in Castiglione del Lago, Umbria, Italy

Although there are numerous fascinating sights to be seen within the town walls of Castiglione del Lago, there are two features that really stand out as essential viewing from a Castiglione del Lago holiday rental villa or apartment. The Fortress of the Lion (Castello del Leone), with its distinctive pentagonal design, dates back to the 12th Century and has some remarkable feats of engineering within its walls. The Town Hall is no less impressive, although much of its appeal comes from its Renaissance style as opposed to its powerful appearance. It is here that you can find the civic museum and gallery which houses beautiful Renaissance frescos and paintings from local masters.

Many visitors to Castiglione del Lago come for the unspoilt nature. Based between the shimmering Lake Trasimeno and the lush green hills of Umbria, Castiglione del Lago accommodation is at the centre of nature, home to a huge array of waterfowl from heron to the elusive osprey. There are many wonderful walks around the shores of Lake Trasimeno to take, details of which are available from the Castiglione del Lago tourist information office. The lake itself is a haven for sailing and fishing, and you can hire a boat, get a lesson or organise a fishing trip easily from within the town.

Every other year, Castiglione del Lago springs into life as the bi-annual Coloriamo I Cieli festival fires up. The ‘Colour of the Skies’ festival is a celebration of kites, hot air balloons and light aircraft, and is held in April or early May. It is a stunning spectacle, unmissable if you are lucky enough to be staying in Castiglione del Lago accommodation at the time.

Unique and charming country estate

5 of 5
We spent 4 days in MIralaghi in July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The house has style and a sense of grandeur but is also comfortable and relaxed and nestles in the heart of a large private estate.How unique to be able to walk for miles and see wildlife such as red squirrels and wild boar. The estate abuts the charming mediaeval town of Paciano, with its pristine narrow streets, perfectly restored buildings and lovely restaurant, La Loggetta.Maria was kind and attentive from the start and it was obvious that her guests' enjoyment was of utmost importance to her. We would highly recommend MIralaghi and plan to return.

Quiet, Beautiful, Interesting Base

5 of 5
The property looks exactly as on the photos. It has a lot of character both inside and out in the garden or on the stone patio area. There is a reasonably well equipped kitchen with a nice living room area overlooked by a picture of Annie Lennox, while upstairs apart from the bedroom and shower room, there is also a study plus an area with a washing machine.The garden gets plenty of sunshine throughout the day and has three levels including the patio with fabulous views. It is a perfect base for visiting the mediaeval hilltop towns with their beautiful churches. Perugia, Assissi, Spoleto, Orvieto and Gubbio, just to mention a few are all worth a visit. Corciano itself is an interesting mediaeval town with it's own castle and some bars looking out across the valley plus a fantastic restaurant called 'Il Convento'. We cooked many lovely meals in our ten days using local produce, some from a neighbour and some from the local supermarkets. We also had a stunning meal cooked for us by Rosella and Massimo's neighbour Theresa using her own home grown produce - it was better than the restaurant! Nothing was too much trouble for Rosella and she came straight over if neededand always had a nice smile.A very sweet lady and a very lovely cottage to holiday in. We hope to visit again in the future!
