About The Experience
Dreaming about a destination wedding in Italy? This beautiful stone farmhouse accommodation on the boarder of Umbria and Tuscany is the perfect spot to celebrate a wedding or family reunion. The extensive grounds include rolling hills, woods, olive groves, and vineyards. There are nine individual units, one of which is located 10 meters from the main farmhouse. Each apartment has a kitchen corner and access to a terrace or garden, allowing everyone to enjoy some privacy. Outside there are two pools, one for adults and the other for small children. This is a great location for day trips throughout Tuscany and Umbria.
Location Description

The farmhouse is located two kilometers from the town of Tuoro sul Trasimeno. Although small, the center of town features shops, restaurants, and places to buy groceries. Rich in history, Tuoro sul Trasimeno arose on the same site where 16,000 Roman soldiers lost their lives in 217 BC by the army of Hannibal the Carthaginian. A theatrical reconstruction of the battle, titled Mission Hannibal, is held every evening where you, the spectator, can become one of the protagonists as the actors take you on an adventure journeying through the series of events. For a more lighthearted activity, take a quick drive on a sunny day to the beaches of Lake Trasimeno where you can engage in water sports. At the end of the day, eat at one of the restaurants featuring fresh fish or homemade pasta. The ancient Etruscan town of Cortona is also a short drive away and is full of art, history, and culture. Here you can tour frescoed churches from the 13th century; explore the original city walls, and visit an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You are also sure to find ancient tombs dating back to the second century BC, restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes, and plenty of shops ranging from antiques and crafts, to wines and olive oils. There is also the possibility of taking day trips to Perugia, Assisi, and Siena.

Nearby Attractions: shops, restaurants, markets, Tuoro sul Trasimeno (water sports, theatrical performances, beaches, boating, restaurants), Cortona (Etruscan ruins, ancient churches, original city walls, art exhibits, fortresses, ancient tombs, shops, restaurants), Perugia, Arezzo, Siena.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Perfect place for many families together. Lots of interesting places to visit in the area within an hour's drive.
Enjoyed Most:
The outdoor area was nice and with lots of shade. Nice swimming pool with plenty of reclining chairs. Each apartment was different but all were very charming.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing - we enjoyed everything (expect the rooster who started his routine at 6 o'clock on the neigbor's farm.)
Surrounding Area:
Very charming countryside, lots of places to visit. We enjoyed the cathedral in Orvieto, the city Siena (market on wednesdays - park at the north end of the village, by the stadium), the fortified village Montereggioni, chocolate and ice cream in Perugia, the awesome "Grotto de Frasassi" (a day trip - lunch in Gubbio, then the caves followed by dinner in Perugia on your way home).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Vernazzano is a not even a village, but had 2 local bars, both within walking distance. Tuoro sul Trasiemo is the closest village (5 min. to drive), but not really within walking distance. Restaurants are everywhere in the countryside - we tried and recommend an outdoor restaurant situated halfway between the property and Cortona, along the local road.
Tips or Restaurants:
The local foods stores are open unril 8 in the evening, and even open for a short while on Sundays, so it was easy to get food and beverages after we arrived. The store is a 5-minute drive from the property. Bigger stores are a 15 minute drive--there's one in Carmucia (near Cortona) that has a good selection of meat, seafood and wine. Buy the map of the Umbria + Marche area (Touring Editore no. 8)
Directions:
None - the directions were perfect.
Check In Out:
Everything went smoothly.

Yes. Touro sul Trasimeno is close. Also the village Vernazzano.
Tips or Restaurants:
We had a nice evening at the Antica Dogana (Pergo Dogana, Tuoro Sul Trasimeno).

Yes, we used a GPS. But nicely signed by the road side.

Overall:
Perfect place for our large group of people, renting the whole place. Nice and friendly owner checking in from time to time. Children (from 6 - 23) and grown-ups were all having a fantastic time!
Enjoyed Most:
Garden/outdoor area and pool area + short distances to many beautiful towns and cultural cites in Toscana and Umbria.
Enjoyed Least:
A bit "poorly" equipped in the kitchens (but being a gourmet-club we might have higher standards than most..), and the bikes for use at the property were not in very good shape.
Surrounding Area:
Good cycling area for those of us that wanted, nice and open landscape and short distance by car to many interesting sites and towns (Cortona, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, etc).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tuoro Sul Trasimeno--yes, we could walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Plenty of good restaurants in all the surrounding towns.
Directions:
Used ordinary map and travel directions given by owner. Worked well.
Check In Out:
Worked fine!
