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.

The villa was perfect for our large group and the setting is stunning, in amongst the olive trees and vineyards, looking out over the rolling countryside and yet close to all amenities needed. The villa and gardens - The villas, pool and gardens are all immaculately kept. The pizza oven was a major hit and well used! There's loads of room for the children to play, inside and out, shade under trees around the pool and they loved the trampoline. The vine covered pergola makes a wonderful al fresco area to while away the hours over delicious local food and wine! The area - It's such a stunning area of Italy and the villa is so well situated. We did several day trips to local towns, wineries and eateries, recommended by Ken and Danica in their very helpful guide folder, and it was always so lovely to come home to the peace and privacy of the villa. Our hosts - Ken and Danica [by email] and Sandra [locally] were so helpful and responded immediately if we needed anything, thank you so much to both. They have thought of so many details within and outside the villa to make their guest's stay both comfortable and fun. We loved our stay and would thoroughly recommend Villa La Quercia as a perfect home away from home. Thank you so much Ken and Danica!

Easy to get to from the motorway. Comfortable villa with everything you need. The hosts were wonderful, helpful and informative at every point. There's plenty to do in the area without having to travel miles to get there. If you want a quiet day at home then the pool area is comfortable and private. We would certainly return and book this villa again.

                                                                                          I was slightly sceptical when I read the previous reviews about this place. However we were pleasantly relieved that our expectations about Il Granaio were exceeded and my only hesitation about writing a 5 star review is that it will become too popular! The first thing to say is that the photos on the website do not do the place justice. Having stayed in many villas around Europe, the accommodation gardens and particularly the swimming pool were without doubt the best we have stayed in. The design of the Granary Barn has clearly been thought through with even the air-conditioning units, which can often be noisy, being located some distance away. The kitchen is well stocked with a very welcome starter pack including Olive oil and wine from the estate. A real bonus was walking up the drive to pick tomatoes and lettuce from the garden to make delicious bruschetta. Within a 20 minute drive are the stunning towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. We were amazed how quiet the local area was in August, there was no problem in getting a table at the local restaurants. Perfect destination if you want to get away from it all, if you want a bit of night life this area may be a little quiet for you. We would have liked to see a guest book with recommendations from other guests of places to see and eat. We had a very friendly fox appear at the door one night - the following morning our flip flops and swimming goggles had gone AWOL - found later hidden half eaten in the garden - suggest bring everything in at night!
