REVIEW FROM OUR GUESTS; “What a fantastic and breathtaking view”
The villa was perfect for our needs including every facility necessary for a comfortable stay, the photos don't do the location enough justice as it really is set in the most stunning and breathtaking location - we woke up every morning to the glorious views over lake Trasimeno and thought that life couldn't get any better! The property is clean, maintained and so convenient for both Panicale and Paciano. Above all the lady who manages the property was beyond helpful, a joy to meet and simply able to provide so much valuable help about the local area. I would definitely come back and urge others to explore this amazing region of Umbria.
