The village’s origins date back as far as 2000BC, and there are historic sites littering the area dating back to a vast array of eras from throughout history. The beautifully elegant gates of Porta Fiorentina and Porta Perugina guard the entrance to the village, and its seven charming little churches within. The ancient theatre has been recently restored, and plays host to a great range of performances and concerts throughout the summer months, drawing visitors from across the region. Attending a performance is an absolutely timeless experience, and one which will stay with you forever.

Staying in Panicale is a wonderfully social experience. Most days start with a leisurely cappuccino in Gallo’s Bar overlooking the stunning landscapes of Umbria, and finish with a nightcap there. During the summer months, there is a weekly free Jazz night every Thursday, which always draws an excitable and exuberant crowd, which fills the main square. Thursday nights in the summer are an absolute treat, as the whole square is decorated with tables and flickering candles which provide a stunning atmosphere. The September wine festival, August Chestnut Festival and Easter Procession are particularly popular, but there are events and festivities throughout the year.

House was great, roomy, clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, all the facilities you'd ever need, fantastic little garden. Pool was great. All in all, it has to be one of the top places we've stayed at in 10 years or more of holidaying in Central Italy.

The villa itself is simply but stylishly decorated, with all the comforts you need for your stay. The pool and views are wonderful. We had a very relaxing stay with our teenage children. Panicale is only a very short distance away with charming bars, restaurants and a few shops. The location is perfect for visiting the sights of Umbria and Tuscany. We thoroughly recommend this villa and will definitely return one day. The Barnett family

Frankly you didn't want to budge. Surrounded by olive trees in a quiet spot, Panicale is only 5 minutes drive away. If you don't want to cook in, there is a very good pizzeria less than 7 minutes away or you can go into lovely Panicale where there are a few restaurants. The pool is stunning, we were fortunate enough to be alone and didn't have to share, the pictures are very accurate and the pool is tended daily. Sadly we didn't have terrific weather in September so could only enjoy it about 3-4 times. The apartment offers excellent value for money. But as someone else has said here, it was the welcome which Daniela and Agostino which is perhaps the most memorable. We would discover fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, FIGS (!) and onions being offered on a daily basis, we couldn't keep up! They really are the best hosts and did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible, even to the extent of coming along in our car to introduce us to a local wine producer so we could buy something to take home.
