An ex-water mill originally built at the beginning of the 18th cent. On a large organic olive oil-producing estate in the rolling hills near Lake Trasimeno in central Italy (Umbria, Tuscany), Peaceful, immersed in nature, beautiful views, interesting area.

The space
Umbria - central Italy, near border with Tuscany, close to Lake Trasimeno, beautiful hamlets and historic towns such as Perugia, Assisi, Città della Pieve, Pienza and Cortona. Delightful, fully-equipped (includes internet connection), elegantly furnished and totally air conditioned cottage in a 18th-century recently-restored stone farmhouse in the hills, on a large agricultural estate (organic olive oil production).
This independent, and very characteristic house with private terrace is called "Il Girasole", and it is on 2 floors: on the top floor there are a spacious double bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub/shower; on the ground floor there is a living room with double sofa bed and wood-burning stove, and fully-equipped wooden kitchenette decorated with hand-painted tiles.
The apartment looks out onto a beautiful terracotta terrace equipped for eating outside and immersed in greenery.
Il Girasole was built in 1703 and was originally a water mill. Infact, underneath the living room floor, protected by a glass panel, you can see the channel that used to feed the mill.
There is a shared pool (there are a cottage and a villa in this complex) with a spacious terracotta terrace with large stone barbecue and outside shower, equipped for eating outside.
In our property there are several trails for nature walks, jogging and trekking.
We offer a fun Italian cooking lesson with dinner in our common room, held by a young local chef.
The closest town (Tavernelle di Panicale) is 10 minutes away by car. Here you will find pizzerias, bakeries, supermarkets, shops, etc. There are delicious restaurants in the area serving typical Umbrian meals. The beaches and islands of Lake Trasimeno are 20 minutes away by car. In Tavernelle you will also find a tennis court and a great water park.

Where you’ll be

Panicale, Umbria, Italy

Upon booking we will send you our suggestions on interesting places to visit, activities and our favourite restaurants in the area. We would certainly reccomend a visit to the beautiful hamlets that overlook Lake Trasimeno, such as Castiglione del Lago with its castle and Panicale; old, charming towns such as Città della Pieve; and famous art and cultural sites such as Assisi and Perugia. From the farmhouse you can easly visit the towns of Chiusi (Etruscan museum and stes), Montepulciano (famous for its wine production), Cortona and Pienza in Tuscany. There are two islands on Lake Trasimeno, one of them a nature reserve, and there is a bird reserve on the shores of the lake. Also, you may want to go wine tasting and visit some wine-producing estates, or buy local cheese produced from our neighbours. It is also possible to go truffle hunting (during the summer months) or taste a local meal at a summer fair. In your apartment you will find a list of local events (summer fairs, music festivals, theatre, concerts, etc.)

I deal with the Marketing and Bookings of this family-run agricultural estate and "agriturismo" (rental of apartments in farmhouses) and I live in Rome. My sister Monica and her companion Ernesto live in Colle San Paolo and manage the farmhouses, and they will be assisting you during your stay. We produce extra virgin and organic olive oil on this beautiful property on the hills that overlook lake Trasimeno, in the Umbrian countryside. We have about 2.000 old olive trees (250 are more than 150 years old), and we have recently planted 500 new trees.
About 5 years ago we restored three 17th-century farmhouses, creating 9 apartments, 2 independent cottages and a villa. We have built two pools and several panoramic terracotta terraces around the farmhouses, and planted many flowers and flowering bushes in the gardens. The area is very interesting (mediaeval hamlets, historical towns, castles, Etruscan tombs and Museums, wine and cheese-producing estates, etc.), and there are quite a few delicious local restaurants - we will be pleased to give you all the information for touring the area and discovering this enchanting part of central Italy, between Umbria and Tuscany.
