La Carina is a charming 18th c farmer's cottage. The cottage with adjacent barn has been sympathetically restored and sits on a hillside looking across the valley to Panicale, a beautiful hilltop town with stunning views of Lake Trasimeno. The property stands on its own, surrounded by 1.5 acres of olive trees. It has complete privacy, yet is only 200metres above the hamlet of Macereto (the last 200metres up the hill is a white road ie unmade up) It is 5 minutes drive to the small town of Taverenelle with supermarkets , post office, pharmacy, and bank.
This is a perfect base for visiting Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Lake Trasimeno and all the many local hill towns.(Panicale is the place for drinks in its lovely piazza.) Alternatively just relax on the terrace and in the garden for a peaceful holiday in the Umbrian countryside.
La Carina is a paradise for nature lovers, with an abundance of wild flowers in spring and early summer, especially up the hill behind the house. There are birds such as hoopoes and red kites, and pine martens have been seen around the house.
There is a Water Park five minutes drive away with excellent facilities for children and adults; a very large pool, small paddling pools and several water chutes. It has large grounds with tables, loungers, umbrellas and a coffee bar
