Insieme a mia madre e ai miei fratelli gestisco un agriturismo in Umbria, situato in un piccolo borgo di campagna nell'area del Lago Trasimeno a confine con la Toscana.

The tower was terrific, and the view on the lake even better. Welcoming bottle of wine made the stay even more pleasant. I will be recommending this place to my friends.
The Tower was fantastic! An amazing view of Lake Trasimeno over the fields of olive trees! So peaceful and quiet . The Tower is unique and perfect for a couple - close to all the local sights including Cortona. Michele was a great host- his driving directions were easy and we found the Tower without any problems. Greatly appreciated the bottle of wine on our arrival.
Thanks again Michele for a great stay!
We really loved staying in the Tower (once we located it!). It is exactly as described and photographed. There was a bottle of local wine waiting for us, which was hugely appreciated! We bought more along with olive oil from the lady at the Yellow house, just near the Tower. It was a beautiful peaceful location. That said if you go when it's not summer I would definitely say you need a car to explore the local area and Tuscany. Also to drive to the local shops to stock up on food. It was not warm enough for us to use the pool. The Tower had a fully functioning kitchen, it was very warm and cosy and the bed was very comfy. The wifi worked perfectly. It was a wonderful relaxing experience, and I would definitely recommend staying at the Tower if that's what you're looking for.
Everything about the say was nice. After a little initial difficulty finding the place (no fault of Michele's; his directions were quite detailed), we were happy to find the place was exactly as pictured. Immaculately clean and very unique. (Just be careful if lugging large suitcases up the spiral steps.) We didn't get to meet Michele; we were there in late Oct. right in the middle of olive oil production season, but his wife was quite gracious as we communicated in broken English & Italian. And we got fresh olive oil the next morning, as Michele's mother poured us a bottle from the huge tank, which was made just the day before. If you're into history, the place is right along the Sanguineto road, where Hannibal defeated/slaughtered tens of thousands of Roman soldiers in that very area; great little displays along the road in English & Italian explaining it all. Some people posted comments about the tiny bathroom & shower. Yeah, a little small, but no problem for either of us. Wish the weather was a little less rainy/foggy the 2 days we were there, as we missed out a bit on the great lake views. But one nice plus was their farm cat Led, who stayed in the tower off & on with during much of our stay (we're cat lovers, so we were more than happy with it. Lovely orange tabby. Very convenient to Cortona and the hilltop/wine towns of Tuscany (kind of silly we were in Umbria but really didn't see any of the great Umbrian towns). So for the reasonable price, beautiful location and unique Tower experience, we'd highly recommend the Tower. (Steve/Sharon)
The place was really nice, amazing view, very cute house. A little on the small side. Michele was very flexible in his booking schedule although we only booked very shortly before. That being said, communication afterwards was a bit slow, but that might not be his fault.
The tower itself is great, beautiful surroundings - we'll come back!
Great spot! Quiet, beautiful view - very peaceful and romantic!
It is hard to find so make sure you get directions! We would return in a heartbeat. The shower is completely normal for European standards just as a note.
Really nice apartment with modern amenities and it was very clean and comfortable. The best part of the place is the awesome view of the lake! Michele even made sure to turn on the heat quickly for us when it got cold at night.
This rental has many assets: good location, nice view, quiet private property, outdoor dining table, good kitchen, tv, wifi, clean & comfortable inside, pool, lounging chairs and recliners at the poolside. They have wine and olive oil made locally. The restaurant kitchen can open for you by request. Historic site (Hannibal battle site). Proximity to Cortona for quick drive. The lakeshore at Tuoro is uninteresting. Cats, family dog, wasps outside were common, as was the occasional bug inside. Friendly owners, very hospitable and relaxed. We stayed a week in August and the AC kept us cool.
This was a great home base for me and my family for a week. The unit/rooms themselves were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The wifi worked well. The pool was great!
Only two not positive aspects....
-lack of communication on our arrival. No one there to meet us and no indication of which unit we were in. ABout 20 minutes later, the woman who runs the b&b next door figured it our for us.
-The unit (#3) was in between two others, and the German's next door were very loud. Just be aware that this is a possability...living closly with other vacationers during your stay.Besides taht, the location was great. We took a day trip to Rome, and toured the area, and just hung around at the pool.
We had a fantatic stay in this fantastic place, with nice people.
