Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Surrounded by stunning countryside, this traditional Italian villa is ideal for a rustic family escape or a friendly reunion. Whether you’re perched on one of the balconies upstairs or sunning yourself in the garden, you’ll have sprawling vistas to enjoy. There’s an outdoor kitchen for family meals, but if you’d rather leave the cooking to someone else, you’re just a short drive from the local eateries in the nearby towns and villages. Nature lovers will be pleased too, as along with the rolling hills and forests, you’re only a very short drive from the stunning area of Lake Trasimeno.
