We try to keep the castle as it is, a private property in order to not disturb our guest’s privacy. That’s why you will not find signs of the castle as it is not a restaurant and not even a hotel.

Most of the time our guests get lost with the GPS so we recomment to follow our directions. Anyway the castle’s address is:

Località San Vito, 19

06065 Passignano sul Trasimeno (PG)

Italy

Take the exit ORTE (after less than 100 km) and follow the sign to PERUGIA on the freeway E45 . Once you have left the E45, pass PERUGIA and after 20 km you will see the lake, take the first exit TORRICELLA, turn left and take the second one on your right which is the big tree line that brings up to the castle. Go through a chain to take the tree line and follow the road on the right.

From Florence take the A1 direction ROMA. After about 1 hour driving take the exit BETTOLLE VAL DI CHIANA and follow signs for PERUGIA and for LAGO TRASIMENO. Than take the exit TORRICELLA,turn right, cross the railway and at the end of the street turn right, cross the railway again, pass under a bridge and at the end of the street turn left, pass the Hotel Il Gabbiano and take the third road on the right which is the tree line of the castle.
