Additional Location Information

Panicale is a typical and very beautiful medieval Umbrian hilltop town. The Villa 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), and a small grocery store selling everything from fresh produce, cold cuts, cheeses and wine to toiletries and common household supplies. There is the butcher will gladly make you make sausages while you wait, and down the street is a bakery, where fresh bread, pastry and a variety of pizza await you at 6 am. 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, but the most fun is had in the main piazza on weekend nights when free, live entertainment performs as you sip local wine or a capuccino. Panicale also has a tourist information office, a real estate agency, a pottery shop, a drug store, a stationary/internet point selling foreign newspapers and magazines, a 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, Orvieto, Montepulciano, Assisi, Cortona, Todi, Deruta, Siena and other well known towns worth visiting. All have so much to offer in terms of cuisine, art and culture and all guests LOVE to return as often as they can.

The Villa is located near Panicale and Castiglione del lago on the Lake Trasimeno with restaurants, shops, a grocery store, butcher shop, bakery, bank with ATM and many other amenities. You can really enjoy your holiday here -- walking is pleasurable as Panicale is closed to vehicular traffic! Parking is always available outside the two main entrances to the town so once inside the historic center you can take a step back in time, enjoy the amazing sunrises and sunsets and RELAX! And everyone is so very friendly. Moreover, a number of Panicalesi speak english so language is never a barrier here! Panicale is very centrally situated. 90 minutes to the south by train is Rome and the many towns in between. One hour to the north is Florence. By car you can easily reach Cortona, Perugia, Montepulciano as well as the impressive nearby Casteglione del Lago fortress and Lake Trasimeno with its unique islands and many sporting, dining and cultural activities. One visit to Panicale and you will want to return, as we do, year after year. Panicale is situated on the Umbria/Tuscany border, boasting the unsurpassed natural beauty of local vineyards, endless sunflower fields and olives groves and acres of fig trees. While walking and hiking is an excellent way to explore this memorable area, Panicale is close by car or local train to Perugia, Montepulciano, Brunello di Montalcino and the Chianti area, Cortona, Passignano, Castiglion del Lago, Chiusi, Castiglion Fiorentino, Arezzo, Pienza, Orvieto, Assisi, Gubbio, Siena, Pisa, Lucca and of course Rome and Florence. Plenty of sporting opportunities await; tennis is minutes away in one of several tennis facilities, boating and water sports abound on Lake Trasimeno (not to mention the festive Riviera atmosphere in the cafes and restaurants along the shore), a family water park is minutes away, bike rentals are available nearby to cycle the miles and miles of scenic waterfront or picturesque countryside.
