We loved our week staying in this spacious family apartment overlooking the main piazza of laid back Castiglione on the edge of lovely lake Trasimeno. It had everything needed for our family to enjoy this off the beaten track Umbrian town and it had easy access to the local region. The apartment had wonderful atmosphere with views over the lake and a church and very cool bar right next door. Francesca was very helpful.
La casa is wonderfull! And not only the house (which indeed, is like an ancient family museum), but also the great location and last but not least: the very nice Francesca! Her hospitaly is even bigger than the house, if that's possible;-) We've had a great 6 days in her family-house, together with our baby son. Castiglione del Lago is a very nice and beautiful village, but we also loved Montepulciano and Cortona which are very close by. We would definately go back, so don't hesitate and have a fantastic time!
‘highly recommended apartment overlooking the small piazza in the ancient lake town of Castiglione del Lago. The apartment is spacious and well equipped with a large sun-terrace overlooking the square. It is near restaurants and shops specialising in selling typical local produce and fresh fish from the lake. The apartment is authentically traditional Italian and has a large kitchen provided with every sort of cooking implement you could imagine
Castiglione is a beautiful old town and is set right on the lake with views over Umbria. There is a good rail link to Cortona, Florence, Arezzo, Rome or Perugia if you want to leave the car behind and concentrate on relaxing. The owner Francesca was particularly helpful and friendly met us at the station on arrival and delivered us back at the end of our stay. The house belongs in her family and she made us very welcome and ‘at home’
it was nice to meet you, see you soon
de ontvangst door francesca kon niet beter zijn:
een hartelijk WELKOM: een fles wijn, een lekkere cake en een fruitmand en, alsof dat nog niet genoeg was: yochert, fruitsap en water in de koelkast.
francesca is werkelijk een top gastvrouw: we voelden ons direct op ons gemak in het familiehuis van de Lana's en danken francesca's moeder voor het vertrouwen dat zij in haar gasten stelt.
Ringrazio Francesca per la calorosa accoglienza che ci ha (website hidden) ha fatto sentire subito a nostro agio e ci ha messo tutto a nostra disposizione. L'appartamento é grandissimo e pieno di comodità. Arredato in stile. La posizione è privilegiata. Stare al centro ti fa vivere la vacanza in tutta tranquillità. Lo consigliamo anche per la sua posizione strategica, da lì si possono raggiungere posti molto interessanti come Siena, Perugia, Cortona ecc.
Het huis dat Francesca verhuurd is in een woord geweldig. Het is heel ruim, netjes en koel. Maar wat ons altijd zal bij blijven is de authentieke inrichting. Het is een waar familiemuseum dat je door de geschiedenis van de familie leidt. Onvoorstelbaar dat mensen nog zoveel vertrouwen hebben in de medemens......
Francesca is een hele attente en aardige gastvrouw!!!!
Daarbij ligt het huis ook nog eens aan een gezellig pleintje waar altijd bedrijvigheid is. Aan de overkant van het plein ligt een geweldig restaurant, waar Francesca ons op attendeerde en ook een klein leuk barretje ligt op het pleintje. De mensen zijn overal even vriendelijk en gastvrij. Castiglione is een klein maar super gezellig plaatsje om in terug te komen na een dag er op uit te zijn geweest. Wij hadden er een heerlijk verblijf.
Francesca was very flexible and service oriented. She reacted immediately upon our wishes and she was very friendly and heartful.
The flat is in the historic part of the town with great view to the lake and the central square. It is well-equipped with all necessary things including an air condition and a marvellous kitchen inviting you to stay for evening. The flat is very clean and noble with a great romantic and historical touch. Lot of space!
We can recommend holidays at Francesca´s without restrictions.
We always were able to get a parking place near the flat and the infrastructure of Castiglione del Lago is very good.
The home is as described - spacious and good for four people. But, as described, only one bathroom!
The home is very conveniently situated within the walls of the city and within walking distance of restaurants, shops - even the hospital etc.
Francesca could not be a better hostess. I needed medical attention and Francesca took me to the doctor then on to the hospital for many tests. She stayed with me until late at night to be sure I was OK. What a hostess. I thank her very much.
Francesca deserves the very highest ratings for Casa vacanze La finestra sul Lago - her apartment in the lakeside village of Castiglione del Lago. She welcomed us (literally) into her home, as the apartment is in a building that has been owned by her family going back well into history.
Castiglione del Lago is in Umbria, but very close to Tuscany. From there we visited Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino, and more. We loved it.
The walled village also includes Mona Lisa, a fantastic restaurant that served the best pasta I've ever had (fettuccine with perch and pear) and the largest appetizer of mussels ever.
Thank you Francesca. You are a wonderful and generous host. We hope to return soon.
