About The Experience
Located on the border of Umbria and Tuscany on a large estate that is a small borgo (village), this is one of eight apartments spread across three beautiful stone buildings. Within a garden of rolling hills, woods, olive groves, and vineyards, the grounds of this borgo have a footpath leading through an Umbrian hill where the ambiance is magical and the views are simply breathtaking. Outside there are also two swimming pools on the estate, one for adults and the other for children. Play water sports on Lake Trasimeno, learn the history of Arezzo, and see the sights in Siena, which is exactly what you are able to do while being near both Tuscany and Umbria at this accommodation!
Location Description

The borgo 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 participate 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

Relaxing, quiet week surrounded by grapes and olive trees. There are nearby wonderful Tuscan and Umbrian cities to explore--with fantastic gourmet restaurants.
Enjoyed Most:
On the property thre are grape and olive oil tastings and a small petting zoo. It has a family-friendly European atmosphere, making it perfect for families with small children! There is a friendly, English-speaking, helpful staff.
Enjoyed Least:
The directions were inadequate and it took significant ingenuity on our part and assistance from an Italian hippie to finally find the property in the quiet of the Italian lunch/siesta time.
Surrounding Area:
There are great small medieval towns and villages close by, such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Gubbio, and Orvieto. We stayed in Florence the first 3 days and then visited smaller towns during the latter part of the trip--a great choice.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The tiny village of Vernazano was within walking distance, but the closest grocery store was about 2 miles away. Tuoro, the larger village, and another grocery store, were about 2 miles away.
Tips or Restaurants:
Take the Tuoro exit and follow La Casa Colonica signs to the first large intersection in Tuoro. Then, take right and follow signs to Vernazano; you'll see signs again for La Casa Colonica. Do follow Frommer's guide to Tuscany for resturant recommendations.
We did not have Italian GPS and property owner said that one has to enter Vernazano into the GPS in order to get to the property. You have to know to drive to Vernazano first (from Tuoro) in order to find the La Case Colonica signs.
Check In Out:
English-speaking staff made process easy. We did not have to pay any security deposit and "voluntarily" left the 65 Euro final cleaning fee since there was no one in office when we left in the PM. The staff just wrote down info from one passport and was not interested in copies of passports that I wanted to give them.

Very nice villa.
Enjoyed Most:
Location is very peaceful.
Enjoyed Least:
Stove needs repairs- dials don't work. Also one shower head needs work.
Surrounding Area:
Close to many beautiful sights.
Nearby Events or Locales:
A good supermarket was only 5 minutes by car.
Tips or Restaurants:
Try the owner's wine and olive oil. It is excellent.
