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.

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.
This is a lovely place to stay. About 40 minutes drive from Perugia and you definitely need a car. There are 5 (I think it was 5) apartments/chalets, each with their own private covered verandah and a small lawn with sun loungers for each of the chalets. It is quite basic but clean and the bed linen and towels were nice. The sheets were ironed cotton. The hot water was a little bit erratic at times. It would be a downside if your next door guests were noisy - ours weren't so it was fine. The view is fabulous. The pool is nice - not huge (probably about 10 metres long) but clean and nicely kept. Make sure you have Michele's phone number when you arrive. When we got there, there was no-one around and it was a little confusing But when things were sorted, we were given a warm welcome.
Unser Urlaub im "old tower" war noch besser als erwartet.
Die Umgebung und die Unterkunft sind ein Traum. Besonders der Garten mit Blick auf den See, die Pergola und das komplette Umfeld lassen nichts mehr als Entspannung zu.
Auch der dahinter liegende Agri Tourismo ist extrem nett und zuvorkommend. Hier kann man frische Eier, Wein und Olivenöl kaufen - alles natürlich selbstgemacht.
Wir wurden mit kleinen Snacks und sogar Pizza zum Abendessen versorgt :-)
Die Einrichtung im Tower ist absolut ausreichend - ein kleines Platzwunder... Wir waren 10 Tage haben alles untergebracht und auch sehr gut geschlafen.
Gleich nebenan ist ein Pool, der sehr gepflegt ist und den selben atemberaubenden Ausblick wie der Garten hat.
Alles in allem - 100% zum weiterempfehlen - wir werden wieder kommen.
Staying in this tower was a super experience. The view from the tower (and the "garden" around the tower) is super: olive trees and behind that you can see the Trasimeno Lake.
We didn't see Michele, but we were welcomed by Catia, who was very friendly and welcoming us in the tower. She was also available during our stay if we needed anything (and brought us delicious Italian breads).
You can visit Cortona, Perugia and Assisi perfectly from this place, because it's just 5-10 minutes driving to the
In the tower itself: great bed, everything very clean and we found the shower quite good (some people mentioned that is was small, but we've had worse showers in Italy).
