Apartment I Cuccioli
for 2 to 3 persons
I Cuccioli is a cool refuge from the summer’s heat and keeps a pleasant temperature in winter. The apartment was reconstructed with a very personal touch and has a kitchen work place all handmade from natural stone. For the bedroom we chose an antique brass bed frame. Right in front of the kitchen you may enjoy the afternoon and evening sun on your private terrace, shaded by a mulberry tree. Or find a quiet place under one of the olive trees in our garden.
Master craftsmen known for their artistic flair within an ancient tradition have restored all buildings at the Villa La Rogaia. Outstanding art works in marble and other stoneworks by the sculptor Wolfgang Sandt give each holiday appartment its own character. A large flower garden and sculpture park surround the house. Each apartment has a private terrace and tranquil garden to enjoy. A pool offers refreshment on hot summer days.

Join us for our legendary BBQ nights together with all our guests !
The surrounding landscape is a tapestry of olive groves, sheep pastures, woods, sunflower fields, punctuated with cypress and ancient stone oaks. Here, far away from your hectic everyday life you can relax amidst a natural setting. In the early spring, almond and peach blossoms paint the valley. The summer brings honey scented ginestra (broom). Warm august nights are filled with cicada concerts. The hills are laced with golden hues in the mild autumn, warmed by the scent of chestnut fires throughout the valleys. La Rogaia is the perfect spot for those who seek absolute silence: the next public road is 2.5 km away.
There are miles of trails out our doorstep for hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding. The panoramic drive to Lago Trasimeno is as pleasant as the lake itself. Dotted with islands and castles, this lake is a beautiful place to go swimming, sailing and windsurfing. Many historically relevant towns are within easy driving distance from the villa such as Assisi, Perugia, Siena and Arezzo.
The house is situated amidst woods and meadows only 4 kilometers away from the quaint village of Castel Rigone, reached on an country road by car, mountain bike or foot. Those wanting to enjoy one of our creative courses or a week of hiking or biking may wish to arrive by train. Previous arrangement may be made for us to meet you upon arrival at Passignano (email hidden) distance.

About the Host, Annette
Zusammen mit meinem Mann habe ich vor 16 Jahren ein Landhaus restauriert, in der Nähe von Passignano sul Trasimeno im wunderschönen Umbrien, einem (noch-)Geheimtipp unter den Reisezielen in Italien. Wir betreiben eine kleine biologische Landwirtschaft, stellen Olivenöl her und bauen Lavendel, Duftrosen und Obst an. Daneben vermieten wir Ferienwohnungen, veranstalten verschiedenen Kurse (u.a. Kochkurse zur umbrischen und toskanischen Küche und Tanzkurse) und organisieren Weinverkostungen, Teilnahme an der Olivenernte und Trüffelsuche.
