Panicale, Umbria, Italy
Additional Location Information
Our area is agricultural yet cultural. The former means there are fabulous scenes and vignettes everywhere, with vineyards, olive groves, lake views and utterly charming medieval villages that sometimes seem to defy gravity with their perch on the top of hills. The latter is a wonderful surprise for visitors not accustomed to the amazing historical and artistic treasures to be found here at every turn. Where else, in a village of 85 permanent inhabitants, would you find frescoes attributed to a giant of the Renaissance? You will either find by design or stumble across all kinds of notable art, architecture and important history in even the tiniest village.
The area is rich in archaeological wonders from the Etruscan, Medieval, Roman, and Renaissance eras. During the summer, Panicale and the surrounding villages host numerous activities including festivals, art exhibitions, antique markets, theatrical plays and free outdoor jazz, blues, pop and classical concerts.
Outdoor cafes, bars, quaint shops, and friendly people make Panicale a wonderful and atmospheric place to while away an evening or late morning. Many temporary locals (our guests from abroad) adapt the seductive Italian lifestyle quickly and with alacrity: picking a local bar as their own and visiting it every morning for a cappuccino and cornetto (pastry) and every evening for an apertivo before dinner, catching up on the local news and people watching. You will be welcomed into the community swiftly and made to feel at home.
And don't forget the food and wine! Several world-renowned restaurants make Panicale a dining experience not to be missed. Or, book our Italian grandmother to spoil you with a home-cooked meal that you will remember for decades or a cooking lesson so that you can take home and replicate some of her recipes. Nearby L'Antico Tabaccaio are at least a half dozen "hidden gems" -- wineries whose limited production and high quality make them a local open secret. Most of their wine is consumed by the knowledgeable locals, so is little known outside the region and the province.
Lake Trasimeno is Italy's fourth largest lake, and is only a 7 minute drive. It offers excellent watersports, excursions and lakeside towns with good fish restaurants.
There are many, many famous and notable towns within a 2-hour drive--Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia, Orvieto, Todi, Siena, Assisi–just to name a few. They are way too numerous to list. Florence is an easy day trip.
For those wanting to keep extra pounds at bay while enjoying our legendary cuisine, we can show you lots of places to run, hike, horseback ride, bike and trek and hook you up with bike rentals and guides who can plot a custom route for you and take you to historical sites or wineries/local cheese artisans/historical sites along the way, as you wish. And for those for whom exercise consists of laying out their credit card, there are designer outlets, handicraft markets, and, of course Deruta ceramics. Come and enjoy!
