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

The historical centre of the city is beautifully preserved, offering many magnificent medieval sites for visitors.

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.

We can't overstate what a wonderful experience we had. Our expectations were exceeded! The grounds and the villa itself are absolutely lovely, and the owner, Belinda, was lovely as well. She is so kind and warm, and she took care of everything. We had such a good experience that we are already planning a return anniversary trip with our family. Would highly recommend the villa and Belinda to anyone looking for a picturesque Italian holiday, a family reunion, or even (like us!) a wedding.
