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.

Majority of the time was at Antica Gabella B&B, property listed here. This really was the best part of our holiday! Great communication with us prior the trip was a good start, to make sure we feel relaxed once there. Venue it's easy to find or, like us, if travelling by train, owners can pick you up. From the first minute we felt so welcome at this family run B&B. The venue is so lovely! You can choose, when booking, a room (or actually two) upstairs, with shared entrance or, like us, downstairs which actually is a separate apartment, with a mall kitchen too and street entrance. We where so delighted with fantastic choice of breakfast every day. It really felt like being at home...Thank you! Additionally, owners kept checking if we would need any advise where to go, see, do & dine. This B&B is perfectly located, amongst the old town/castle grounds. Plenty of fantastic places to eat nearby, offering local produce. Antica Gabella is a fantastic place to stay. It's charm and perfect customer service from all teh family who run the business makes us want to come back there again. Strongly recommended!

                                                                                                  Villa la Quercia is the quintessential Umbrian gem. Away, away, tucked away “past the little chapel” down a dusty “white dirt road,” you come to a drive, at the end of which is a gate that opens to a compound of little cottage on the left, then a large farmhouse ahead and beyond the crest of a hill — wow — a swimming pool to die for. The magnificent oaks (le querce) shade one side of the farmhouse and a trellis shelters the dining terrace on the opposite side. The cottage is cozy and complete. The farmhouse is grand and spacious. We enjoyed cooking in the full-fledged kitchen fitted out with large American style appliances—oven/range, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and all the little brother appliances—toaster, teakettle, coffee maker. The counter-top gadgets challenge the rural electrical service, so you use them sequentially, not all at once. The same goes for the laundry machines in the attached garage. Minor adaptations afford modern conveniences. Owners have thought of everything. The otherwise invisible maintenance staff promptly materializes when questions arise. The locals are a delight. The bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy and well appointed. Beds are very comfortable with lovely linens. Surrounded by tilled fields you’ll hear the chirrup of cicadas, see geckos darting along the foundations and bees fondling the lavender. When the heat shimmers over the hayfields, take refuge in the delicious pool where you can gaze across the hills and cypress trees to Lago Trasimeno on the horizon. Explore the little nearby villages, especially lovely Castiglione del Lago. Bring your GPS, but be prepared for the darned thing to occasionally get totally flummoxed, so bring the Michelin map book, too. You’re in the countryside!

                                                                                                  5 of 5
                                                                                                  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!
