TOWNHOUSE INSIDE THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE + PRIVATE GARDEN
Panicale, Umbria, Italy
Additional Location Information
Panicale is a typical and very beautiful medieval Umbrian hilltop town. Il Giardino di Panicale is built into one of the fortified walls that surround the town in the shape of a beehive. Time has absolutely stood still in this village. One can still see signs of a former lifestyle -- cannon turrets, alcoves near the two historic center entrances where night watchmen once stood, ancient cobblestone streets and antique, operable water fountains. Panicale boasts four wonderful restaurants, two cafes (cafe/bar/gelateria), and three small grocery stores (2 inside the walled village) selling everything from fresh produce, wonderful salami & meats, cheeses and wine to toiletries and common household supplies. There is a terrific butcher who will gladly make fresh sausages for you while you wait. Just outside the walls, there is a bakery, where fresh bread, pastries, and a variety of delicious pizza/focaccia await you (open at 6am, for early risers!). The town barber will give you a hair cut and a shave, or if you want to catch up with the latest gossip, drop by the hairdresser. The famous 'little' theater, Teatro Carporali, hosts well-publicized cultural events. however, the most fun can be found in the main plaza on weekend nights (summers) when free, live entertainment performs as you sip local wine or a cappuccino. Panicale also has a tourist information office, a real estate agency, pottery shop, linens and gift store, drug store, stationary/internet point selling foreign newspapers and magazines, post office, and a bank/ATM. Minutes away by car is a full service spa, where you can have a manicure, beauty treatment or massage. Panicale is home to 500 full-time residents. During the summer months this number grows to about 800. The town is within short driving distance to Perugia, Assisi (home of Saint Francis), Cortona, Todi, Deruta (reknown pottery/ceramics), Spello, and Siena. The nearby wine towns of Orvieto (stunning basilica!), Montepulciano, Torgiano (great wine museum), and Montefalco (known for both its wines and its linens) are also worth visiting. These hill towns of Umbria and eastern Tuscany have so much to offer in terms of cuisine, art and culture. Panicale boasts many repeat guests, who keep coming back to call "home" the friendliness, beauty, and peace of Panicale.

What Past Guests Are Saying
The perfect place
We have spent a glorious month in this lovely village. The house and garden are even better than they look in the photos - huge, well equipped and full of character and history and just round the corner from the main square.
Panicale is a good centre for exploring the stunning local countryside round lake Trasimeno (with some wonderful footpaths and views) but also for visiting many Umbrian and Tuscan historic towns and cities within an hour or so driving.
The town is well equipped with food shops bars and restaurants.
Katia looked after us very well, throughout our stay, with fruit and wine thoughtfully provided on our arrival which was late at night following a long flight delay.
The weather in September has been glorious with blue skies and temperature is the upper 20s virtually every day. The only downside has been the Mosquitos so be prepared!
In summary, a perfect place!
This apartment, in the lovely hill top village of Panicale, is architecturally stunning. It is quite large and can easily accommodate 4 people. The kitchen is also spacious and well equipped with all the tools needed to take advantage of the local bounty. Unique to this village apartment is the pretty garden which gets great morning sun. We enjoyed many hours there. Katia, who manages the property, is attentive and a great communicator. When we brought to her attention a broken shower hose it was replaced within hours. Katia lives close by and stopped by often to make sure that all our questions were answered and that we were were happy in our space. Panicale is a magical place and a great central location for visiting the sites in both Umbria and Tuscany but without the crowds.

Perfect garden in Panicale.
Panicale is a small medieval village in Umbria. The centro is surrounded by ancient stone walls, and Il Roseto is part of these ancient walls.Parking is on the street, right outside the entrance to the garden. Within one minute, one arrives at the main piazza, where there are 2 coffee bars, 3 restaurants, and several small shops. Panicale has everything you need-a bakery, post office, ATM, small grocery, etc.
The apartment is a recent renovation of an old cantina. The stone work and arches in the interior are beautiful and the renovation incorporated some interesting original features. The apartment is an interesting blend of ancient and modern. We loved the feel of the place. There is a small kitchen, which has everything you need. The dining room and living room are huge, and there is satellite television and wifi. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. All the rooms(not the bathrooms) have one window facing the garden, except for the master bedroom which has a large door. All the windows are screened. Because the apartment is a ground floor, in the summer it will be quite cool. No need for air conditioning!
My husband and I were really happy to have such a large apartment with comfortable beds and sofas. It was great having the washing machine, and we cooked several meals and ate in the garden.
The garden is huge! It is really amazing to have such a large beautiful space in Panicale, and we were delighted with it.
Katia is the perfect house manager. She will take care of anything you need and can answer any questions you have about the area. She will make you feel at home, and you will become part of her family while you are here.
There are so many fabulous places to visit in Umbria and Panicale is the perfect starting point. The train station is close by, and it is easy to park and take the train to Rome or Florence for the day.
The two weeks we spent at Il Roseto were so much fun. We would definitely return.

Great cozy apartment in charming medieval village!
Stayed at this great cozy apartment for 3 weeks in November. Enjoyed sitting in front of the fire reading on cold wintry days... sitting out on the balcony in the sunshine... cooking meals using meat and produce from the village butcher and grocers... walking around the medieval walls and taking in the spectacular scenery. Each day I'd walk down to the main piazza for morning coffee and pastry, then again in the late afternoon for a glass of local Umbrian wine, and occasionally for scrumptious meals - the restaurants in town are delightful! Nearby towns were fun to visit by car... Castiglione del Lago - 1909 Barbini is a great little restaurant, ceramics by Stefania are beautiful... Macchie for pizza at The Pelican. A bit further away, Deruta has outstanding ceramics, Oriveto's duomo/cathedral is breath-taking, Montefalco and Bevagna are fun too. Drove even further away this trip, to eastern Umbria and the towns of Norcia and Castelluccio - both great to visit and experience.
Katia, the property manager, was awesome! Always available if I needed something... and gave me great ideas of things to do and restaurants to try. She even took me to buy firewood for the wonderful fireplace in my apartment! This is my 2nd rental through Katia - highly recommend Katia and her properties for a stress-free holiday!
