Additional Location Information

Castiglione del Lago and two neighboring towns -- Panicale and Paciano – have each been designated as one of the 'borghi piu belli d'Italia' -- most beautiful villages in Italy -- and it's true. Once fortified against frequently invading foreign armies, they are now lovely but not overly restored towns full of life and warmth. Aside from the obvious benefits of local (coffee) bars, several excellent family-run restaurants, food shops, postal, pharmacy and bank services, a very good hospital, wineries nearby, walking and biking trails and amazing art, the villages have lively social lives with summer concerts, festivals, art exhibitions, and theater.

And the people are friendly and welcoming; within days, I was greeted by the locals as one of their own and developed my own morning and evening rituals of coffee and apertivo at the local bar, catching up on the local news. Plus, it's simply beautiful and close to everything.

Everything you could want to see in central Umbria and Tuscany is at your fingertips - 10 minutes from the main train line leading to Rome in 2.5 hours, Florence in just over 1 hour, 1/2 hour drive to Perugia for chocolate making, Montepulciano or Chianti for wine, Pienza for amazing cheese and countless little hilltop towns along the way. Less than an hour drive to Siena (famous for its horse races, the Palio), Montalcino for wine and many other towns.

Plus this is our home town! We live here and we've explored the area for you, so we're ready to help with reservations, little out of the way spots to explore, hilltop towns to discover, small family-run wineries to see. Years of enjoying our territory and helping guests to discover its magic has built up our 'little black book' of special restaurants, wineries and amazing sites.

SURROUNDINGS:

A few kilometers away is Chiusi, whose old town is worth a visit for its Etruscan museum and good restaurants. The new town has excellent transportation links, with high-speed train connections to all destinations on the Naples-Milan high-speed train line, including Rome, Florence and Orvieto, and convenient access to the A-1 Autostrada.

Within an hour's drive of the Villa are many historic Umbrian and Tuscan hill towns such as

Assisi
Arezzo
Cortona
Montepulciano
Orvieto
Pienza
Perugia
Siena
Deruta
Spello
Citta di Castello and
Montalcino,
as well as other less well-known, but perhaps more charming, smaller villages.

Many of central Italy's other leading historical and cultural centers (Rome, Florence, Todi, Spoleto, Gubbio and Urbino) can be reached in less than two hours.
