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 were a group of three couples - my wifes two sisters and their husbands having our first holiday together for many years. When we arrived at Il Granaio we were delighted at the quality of the place. We were met by Riccardo and Hashim who showed us around and explained how to set/unset the alarm. Riccardo also showed us the salad garden and told us to help ourselves to any fruit and vegetables - which we made great use of during our two weeks stay. It was lovely to have an almost unending variety of fresh crops ripening daily. It was easy to contact Riccardo by text or mobile phone with any queries we had during our stay and he gave us some great tips for local walks and getting to Florence by local train. Two of our group borrowed the bicycles at Il Granaio to do the 70km circuit of Lake Trasimeno whilst the more sensible of the group stayed round the pool...! The pool is fantastic and the photos only hint at how beautiful and high quality it really is - the stone (from The Alps) is beautifully coloured and its texture is great for avoiding slipping. We thought that we might have trouble picking which couple would get the best bedroom but all the bedrooms were equally as nice with big comfortable beds. The kitchen and living area were equipped with good quality furniture and cutlery, and plenty of pots and pans. The wood burning stove and designer staircase and mezzanine level were stunning. We made great use of the lovely brick built barbeque using the logs provided and had some wonderful evenings sitting round the garden table with its fantastic views. The sunset followed by the twinkling lights of Cortona will stick in our memories forever. The property is in an ideal location for visiting many places within an hours drive. We went to Montepulciano, Cortona, Sienna, Assisi, Perugia, Florence (1hr20m by train), Castiglione and Passignano. We can recommend the wine tour with lunch at the Felsina vineyard (Chianti) which is around 40 minutes drive away. We would recommend Il Graniao to anyone without hesitation - you will not be disappointed.

The house is set up as a real home from home with every convenience you could wish for. Our day trips included a number of local markets; Isola Maggiore on Lake Trasimeno where we discovered an Irish lace making museum and a tradition of lace-making which is still alive on the island today; Città della Pieve where we saw some beautiful works of art by a famous renaissance painter, Pietro Vannucci, known as Il Perugino (The Perugian) who was born in the city. My teenage daughter spent a number of hours on a horse-riding trip through vineyards and olive groves which will always be a special memory for her. We would relax in the evening with a glass of some delicious local wine under the stars watching the fireflies play and wake up next morning to the sound of the cuckoo in the distant forest. There's so much to experience locally but more importantly this house is a perfect getaway where you can relax and switch off, unwind and re-energise your heart, mind and body.

Giancarlo was a most informative and helpful host, providing lovely fresh fruit from his garden, and all the places and restaurants he suggested we visit were top spots. The Podere is close enough to Castiglione del Lago to make it easy to pop out for dinner, or a wander round the centro, and is well situated for reaching the many other interesting towns and villages in Umbria and S E Tuscany. I only stayed 2 weeks so have just scratched the surface of a fascinating area full of history, scenery and wonderful food. The property itself was clean, the facilities excellent although we did have a problem accessing the internet, and I would not hesitate to recommend it or to return myself.
