About Niek Hakvoort
We, my wife and I, are in our sixties and retired as pediatrician/oncologist and insurance manager. My first experience with Italy and the Italians is dated to the end of the sixties when I, as a student, have worked for two month in northern Italy. A real great time! We both love Italy for many years and have spent quite a number of holidays with our children on several locations in Italy, but most frequently in Umbria at the Lake of Trasimeno. So we know this environment for a long time and decided in 2006 to buy our own (second) home near Passignano sul Trasimeno. At the end of 2008 we have finished our swimming pool, garden. Now we spend 4 month in a year in our home San Vito. In the summer, July and August, normally we are back in The Hague or are travelling somewhere else.

A great stay in a wonderful house
Wonderfull fully equiped house with a great view on the lake
The Lake Trasimeno has several nice beaches (the nearest are Torricella and Tuoro). The lake side town Passignano offers water sports, boat hire and ferry trips to the beautiful islands of the lake.
The closest airport is Perugia 30 mins away. The airports Roma Fiumicino, Roma Ciampino, and those of Bologna, Pisa, Ancona and Firenze are within a 2 hours drive away. To explore the area of Umbria and Toscana the disposal of a car is highly recommended.
Within 5-15 mins drive: the lake side towns like Passignano, San Feliciano, the beaches of Torricella and Tuoro. The property is very well located to visit the beautiful cities of Umbria and Toscana like Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano and so on, all within reasonable distances: 20-60 mins drive. Cities as Rome and Florence are less than a two hour drive. In Terontola (15 mins drive) you also can take the train to Roma and Firenze (resp. 2 and 1,5 hours).
Although the property is restfully situated, shops and supermarkets for daily shopping are nearby (Magione, Passignano).
There are a lot of festivals in the summer, such as:
-for lovers of classical music: The Trasimeno Music Festival (organised by Angela Hewitt in Magione), Festival dei due Mondi (Spoleto), Festival del Sole (Cortona).
For those who prefer jazz music: the Umbria Jazz Festival (Perugia) and Trasimeno Blues (all around the Lake Trasimeno).
It seems like every village and city in the neigbourhood has its own traditional event in summer: e.g. Le Infiorata in Spello (13 -14 June) during which the whole town is covered with tapestries of flowers or the Festa dei Barbari, Castel Rigone (30 July -2 August).
Very well known is the Palio of Siena (2 July and 16 August) but the Palio delle Barche in Passignano (20-26 July) is also a special event.
The area provides for a numerous amusement possibilities, such as sailing and windsurfing on the Lago Trasimeno, shopping in the outlet center of Valdichiana and playing golf on one of the near golf courses (e.g. Perugia, Lamborghini at Panicale and Antognolla).
You can find more information in our special booklet for guests, in wich also addresses of nice restaurants, pizzeria’s and trattoria’s in the neighbourhood can be found.
