Lake Trasimeno is a 15 minute drive away and offers many water activities and sports. Tenuta Sospesa is not far from the A1 Motorway that connects to Florence in 1hr 30mins and to Rome in 2hrs. It is only 19 km from Perugia with its small but international airport (Ryanair offers direct flights from London Stansted and Brussels Charleroi). As a result, it is a great starting point to visit all of central Italy.

At the "Tenuta Sospesa" time seems to be suspended,
and the atmosphere to float between land and infinity.
Come and visit, and return home lighter.
Qui l'assenza del tempo solleva a qualche centimetro da terra.
Galleggia un'atmosfera 'tenuta sospesa' tra terra ed infinito.
Venite.. e tornerete a casa più leggeri.
We had a truly wonderful long weekend at Tenuta Sospesa. Manouelle is very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the area (she's also a tour guide), so we had a whole list of crammed day trips to fit in! The house is comfortable and well stocked and the grounds are beautiful - we ate figs, apples and sage from the garden and (successfully!) used the pizza oven. The atmosphere is so relaxing - we would have been just as happy on our holiday sitting by the pool, in the hammock, around the garden as we were venturing out into Umbria and Tuscany. Only a few hours in, my friends and I were talking about making this a yearly trip - I think TS would be a perfect place to come back to again and again, especially as it's so well placed to see a lot of the most beautiful parts of Italy.
There was an extra 70 Euro cleaning fee we weren't expecting (possibly it's been added to the listing now), but it wasn't enough to sour the trip - we'll be back for sure.
