Why Christine chose Panicale
After many visits to Italy,discovering Umbria was an inspiration, and finding a disused tobacco drying tower, in a perfect location, was the ideal project.The local people are welcoming and generous.Various music festivals take place around the lake,with many good restaurants to enjoy. .

Lovely relaxing holiday with the kids
This is a beautiful place, off the beaten track and surrounded by the Umbrian countryside. The private pool is a great size and and it was wonderful to spend time there with our kids who are just learning to swim. The property is also well placed to explore the surrounding areas - we hired a car and visited Perugia (stunning!), Polvese island - which has small beaches and was great for swimming in Lake Tresimeno and immersing ourselves in the island wildlife - and also the nearby lakeside town of Castiglione Del Lago and the hilltop villages of Panicale and Paciano, which were perfect for meals out.
The property itself is comfortable, the gardens are beautiful and the owner was always on hand to answer any questions and to give helpful tips and advice about how to make the most of our week's stay. Would happily recommend.
Thank you for your review Rachel, you and your family were perfect guests,
A relaxing Holiday in a beautiful setting
This is a wonderful place to stay. The apartment is extremely well furnished, and all needs are catered for. Clive and his family were very welcoming and were always on hand to offer advice. We spent a magical day, thanks to them on the lake, sailing and swimming and nothing was too much trouble.
The area is enchanting full of historic walled towns, wild flowers, birds and animals, with easy access to wonderful places such as Assisi and Sienna.
One of our favourite places to visit was Panicale, a few miles up the road, where we had a number of idyllic lunches in its lovely square.
This was our first family holiday to Italy and we were certainly not disappointed and would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
PEACE, BEAUTY & COMFORT
This was the perfect holiday home for us - two adults; two children (4 and 14). Everything in the "Villa La Torre Seguito" apartment is convenient, impeccably clean, and sensibly thought through.
The large, secure and secluded gardens were just the thing for our older child, while great progress was mad with the younger one's swimming lessons - the private pool was perfect for his confidence.
The surrounding countryside is ... well, no adjectives can describe the sheer visual beauty and spiritual calm we derived from just a simple walk along the utterly gorgeous lake.
One of the property owners was never more than minutes away if we needed help, advice and information. Both before and after, he and Chris couldn't do enough for us.
Whilst the motif of our own holiday was quiet, calm, privacy and relaxation, the opportunity for excitement and adventure - sailing, cycling, horse-riding, and sightseeing in Perugia and Florence - lay just minutes away.
We're so happy to be able to recommend this venue wholeheartedly to anyone who enjoys architecture, history, the peace of unbesmirched nature, great food - and fine wine.
Magical Days - & Nights!
The website for Villa La Torre's apartment describes this area as magical. We spent four weeks there (extended our intended stay by 10 days!) and have to agree. There's an atmosphere, a feeling, an ambience which we've never experienced anywhere else: to quote the website again - "carefree calm and dreamy peace".
We went with younger friends who went missing for most of every day, saling, cycling and fishing on the big beautiful lake which is just a stone's throw from the apartment door.
The apartment? Comfortable, everything we needed readily available, easy to use. Nice bedrooms. The place has been converted with obvious painstaking care; and the attention we received on arrival and throughout made us feel like VIPs.
Unexpected bonus - the air here is so unpolluted; it's all agriculture and horticulture. There's a delicious quietude. We've never slept so deeply and reinvigoratingly in our lives! - A wonderful place to recharge the batteries.
I was part of a film crew which took over Villa La Torre's Primo house and Seguito apartment for a month, while sourcing locations for a new US movie set in 15th-century Italy.
I've been in this business 32 years, and have to say this was easily the most beautiful, emotive and spectacular countryside I've witnessed.
Our director (can't say his name but you'll know him!) is a regular visitor to Seguito; he chose the venue especially and the owners didn't let us down.
The renovated house and villa are kept in immaculate condition. Comfortable, fully equipped, and there's a relaxing sense of home in every room. I loved every minute of our stay.
I went with four friends on a coarse-fishing expedition on Lake Trasimeno. We stayed 21 nights at Villa La Torre's "Seguito" apartment. It's a marvellous secluded holiday home, all mod cons, plenty of storage space for our gear, so convenient for the lake and buying in supplies from Panicale and Panicarola.
Decent English guy in charge of the property always on hand when needed - very well up on local sights and amenities, good advice, helped with language, even knew best fishing pegs!
- Talking of which, we netted 15lb pike and v-v big perch daily.
Days out to Perugia, Florence (Firenze) and Assisi - stunning! - Nearly as good as the fishing!
