Castiglione del Lago Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 8 Bedrooms, 10 Baths (Sleeps 16) overlooking lake and vineyards

Villa Gioianna is an exclusive and gorgeous country residence sitting in a small working estate composed of large flower and kitchen gardens, olive grove, fruit orchard, woods, and vineyards upon a hill above Lake Trasimeno, where it commands a superb view of Tuscany, Umbria and the Lake.

We have 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, dining room/study, terrace, extensive grounds, private swimming pool, and stunning views.

We can provide an excellent cook (an Italian grandmother) who loves to spoil guests with delicious, homemade meals using the produce from our fields and other locally sourced ingredients. She gives cooking lessons as well.

Pets welcome with prior notice. Please contact us for details.

OVERVIEW: Local lore relates that the Villa was constructed in 1918, but experts have dated its origins much older. The 'padrone', or wealthy landowner, of the surrounding farms built it as his showcase residence and he and his descendants resided here until the 1970s. In the early 21st century, the Villa was renovated and updated, but with respect for the original architecture, spirit and history of the house so that the Villa retains the warmth and ambiance of an Italian family country home. The Villa now has, among other changes, modern mechanical systems and a wonderfully productive well - a boring mechanical fact, you may think, until you're here in the summer, the municipality rations water to a trickle a few hours a day, but the Villa's showers continue happily at full pressure. Terracotta and hand-painted tile floors, whitewashed walls, walnut doors and wood-beamed brick ceilings form a simple background for the carefully detailed interior furnished with splendid antiques, sumptuous textiles, supremely comfortable beds and gorgeous lamps dressed with lampshades designed by the owner and made with vintage and antique fabrics. The Villa's new bathrooms are notorious locally, both for their beauty and number: as every woman will appreciate, there are 9 full bathrooms in the Villa, planned that way so that every bedroom has its own spacious, beautifully tiled bathroom. Enjoy them without guilt: in the summer, 100% of the Villa's hot water comes from solar panels.

You arrive at the Villa via an avenue of cypresses and lime trees, passing through a mature park of 4.5 acres of woods, vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees and flower gardens. The Villa is a small working estate that produces its own olive oil, fruit, vegetables, wonderfully fragrant flowers and herbs. We garden 'sustainably;' we compost and practice companion planting and encouragement of beneficial insects, birds and bats (!) to keep plant diseases and pests in check. Our lawns are local grasses and wildflowers, requiring no commercial fertilizer. We recycle or compost virtually all of the waste produced by the Villa.

The Villa’s name comes from a two words: 'Gioia' (pronounced joy-ah) means 'joy' or 'jewel' in Italian; Anna is the name of the owner, thus Gioianna (joy-ahn-nah).

OLIVE OIL: Our olive oil is our pride and joy. In late October/early November we harvest the olives by hand in the traditional method of 'stroking' the tree, then quickly press them at our local mill. Also in conformance with tradition, we pick the olives before they are fully ripe in order to maximize the flavor, aroma, and peppery taste of our oil. Olive oil from our region - the border area of Tuscany and Umbria - is highly prized for these qualities and has been given its own special regional designation. Guests are welcome to join in the olive harvest, either through our special offer Olive Harvest packages or through an annual week-long Olive Harvest Tour offered by olive oil expert, Dr Carol Firenze.

NEAREST TOWN: The medieval town of Castiglione del Lago is the nearest market town (6 km), sitting high on an olive tree-covered promontory jutting into the west side of the lake. The town's magnificent medieval castle and palace dominate one end of the old town, the 19th century church of Santa Maria Magdalena the other. In between are a number of small shops, restaurants, cafés, bars and bakeries and, on Wednesdays, an outdoor food, crafts, clothing and sundries market. Below the town are public beaches that are a great place for young families to congregate. The beaches offer paddle and rowboats, a pizzeria, gelato, pick-up volleyball and soccer, tennis courts, cafes and a disco. Or, simply float on your back in the lake, gazing back at the ancient town up above on the hill.

For touring, Castiglione del Lago provides easy access to the superstrada linking Perugia and eastern Umbria to Siena, Chianti and western Tuscany, and is the embarkation point for one of the ferries servicing the lake islands. The new town has several large grocery stores and all the conveniences and services of a thriving town.

LOCATION: A few kilometers away is Chiusi, whose old town is worth a visit for its Etruscan museum and good restaurants. The new town has excellent transportation links, with high-speed train connections to all destinations on the Naples-Milan high-speed train line, including Rome, Florence and Orvieto, and convenient access to the A-1 Autostrada. Within an hour's drive of the Villa are many historic Umbrian and Tuscan hill towns such as Assisi, Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Pienza, Perugia, Deruta, Spello and Montalcino, as well as other less well-known, but perhaps more charming, smaller villages. Many of central Italy's other leading historical and cultural centers (Rome, Florence, Todi, Siena, Spoleto, Gubbio and Urbino) can be reached in less than two hours.

AIRPORTS: The nearest major airports are Rome, Pisa and Florence. Each is about a 1.5 to 2-hour drive away. Bologna is a bit farther, approximately 2.5 hours. Perugia airport is the closest (approx 40 minutes).

Why Anna chose Castiglione del Lago

Castiglione del Lago and two neighboring towns -- Panicale and Paciano – have each been designated as one of the 'borghi piu belli d'Italia' -- most beautiful villages in Italy -- and it's true. Once fortified against frequently invading foreign armies, they are now lovely but not overly restored towns full of life and warmth. Aside from the obvious benefits of local (coffee) bars, several excellent family-run restaurants, food shops, postal, pharmacy and bank services, a very good hospital, wineries nearby, walking and biking trails and amazing art, the villages have lively social lives with summer concerts, festivals, art exhibitions, and theater.

And the people are friendly and welcoming; within days, I was greeted by the locals as one of their own and developed my own morning and evening rituals of coffee and apertivo at the local bar, catching up on the local news. Plus, it's simply beautiful and close to everything. I feel very lucky to be a part of this.

But overall, the house was love at first sight. There is a wonderful feeling about it: whether it is the Liberty-style symmetry, its position on a hilltop, the history or just warm feeling that it exudes. It’s a very special house. It has the perfect balance of privacy, yet proximity to cultural treasures and modern-life amenities.

And the views ! On one side there is the lake, with its magical sunlight-on-water or moonlight-on-water views. On the other is such a picture-perfect panorama of vineyards, hills, villages and mountains, that you might be justified in thinking it's a painted scrim.

We are surrounded by the vineyards of a world-class, but family-run winery. You can walk a few minutes, knock on the kitchen door of my neighbor, be greeted warmly, and then return later with a jug of very good and reasonably-priced table wine (vino sfuso) or a bottle of one of the best sangiovese or cabernet wines to be had. How wonderful is that?

What makes this villa unique

Privacy. Tranquility. Beauty. Fabulous food and great wines. Relaxing garden and pool. Warm Hospitality . . . . We think we are the perfect Italian getaway with the best of both worlds: located in the heart of the countryside with all the benefits of having a lively historical city and charming villages nearby.

Everything you could want to see in central Umbria and Tuscany is at your fingertips - 10 minutes from the main train line leading to Rome in 2.5 hours, Florence in just over 1 hour, 1/2 hour drive to Perugia for chocolate making, Montepulciano or Chianti for wine, Pienza for amazing cheese and countless little hilltop towns along the way. Less than an hour drive to Siena (famous for its horse races, the Palio), Montalcino for wine and many other towns.

Plus this is our home town! We live here and we've explored the area for you, so we're ready to help with reservations, little out of the way spots to explore, hilltop towns to discover, small family-run wineries to see. Years of enjoying our territory and helping guests to discover its magic has built up our 'little black book' of special restaurants, wineries and amazing sites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Easter at Villa Gioianna

  • 5 of 5
When I first laid on on Villa Gioianna I could not wait to go inside. Once inside you are taken back in time with her grand entry and stairs lending up to the sleeping quarters. To the right a huge living room with very ornate fireplace. I could not help myself and imagined what it must have been like to actually live this villa many years ago. The villa is decorated with the most beautiful antique furniture which makes the "her" even more inviting. We ate our Easter dinner, which was prepared by the villa's "Nonna" Rosanna, on the terrace that overlooks the grounds. My stay there could not have been more perfect!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in August and the villa worked out perfectly for 9 people. There were two families with Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. The cousins ranged in age from 17 to 24 and they found plenty to keep themselves entertained for a week. There was plenty of room for all of us to gather but also space if someone wanted some quiet time alone. The beds were extremely comfortable. We really enjoyed the beautiful views, the swimming pool, the bocce court, the orchard with fresh fruit, and the fresh vegetables/herbs from the garden. The family that owned the winery next door was extremely friendly and even took us on a tour of the winery and conducted a private tasting at no charge. The owner of the villa, Anna, was always available and helpful whenever needed. The town of Castiglione was only about a 5 minute drive from the villa and had really great shops, an old castle to tour, wonderful restaurants, etc. We went to Pisa and Florence during our trip but actually had more fun at the local places. Everyone in our party cried when we had to leave. The house is rustic but that is also part of its charm. I would highly recommend this villa.

Outstanding villa and an amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week here in early November. WOW! First, I had a beautifully furnished bedroom (and exquisite bed and bedding!) overlooking the olive groves, with Castiglione del Lago and Lake Trasimeno in the background. Then dinners each night were a foodie-lover's mecca, with Rosanna's great cooking and wonderful Umbrian food and wine by the toasty kitchen hearth. Add to that the fun and unique experience of picking olives in the sunshine, and then taking them to the local mill to be pressed into a velvety-green elixer - new olive oil! And getting to take some home for my efforts! The villa owner, Anna, is amazing - always available, gave great suggestions of things to do and restaurants to try. A luxurious place for an unforgettable Umbrian experience!

Umbria/Tuscan Delight

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this beautiful villa just two weeks ago and I still look at the pictures dreaming I was back there.I stayed with 9 others while we were attending a cooking school at Cucina Della Tera nearby. Every morning after yoga by the pool surrounded by Lavender bushes, Anna had a beautiful breakfast set up on the terrace and/or in the garden. The tablecloths were so beautiful I purchased them at the market in town where Anna told me to go. From this villa we took many side trips including a boat ride on the lake.We returned in the afternoon and enjoyed ourselves at the pool or taking a little nap!!! The area was so serene and picturesque , one could just sit, think (or not) read relax.......The pictures posted on this site are true to form and each bathroom was more beautiful than the next!
We did not need the use of a chef but that sounds good to me for next time...yes...there will be a next time!!!I slept very well...so much so...that we purchased a new mattress when I got home.
I finally got a piece of heaven at this villa!!!! A nearby restaurant (6k) was Osteria Le Scalette where Roberto and his family will serve you up a special meal prepared lovingly by mama. Anna, the owner, was helpful and enjoyable to speak with. She exudes the serenity of the area....what all New Yorkers want!! The property was clean and beautiful....I only wish I could live there!!!!

A piece of heaven in the Italian countryside

  • 5 of 5
The Castilione del Lago is nestled in the Italian wine country in one of the most gorgeous settings we have ever found. The villa is historic and is surrounded by picturesque vineyards and olive groves, with views of shimmering Lake Trasimero from the veranda and many of the rooms. The grounds include peaceful gardens for reading and the large lap pool, which was a refreshing way to relax after a day of sightseeing. The location is central to some of central Italy's best sights, including Orvieto, Panicale, and the fabulous hot spring spas at Fonteverde.
The villa is fabulous inside and has been decorated with furnishing from all over Europe. Downstairs the main room includes comfortable furniture for sitting and a baby grand piano. The bathrooms have all been upgraded with beautiful Italian tile flooring and modern fixtures. Each of the bedrooms has been decorated with different antique pieces, most with brass bed frames and ornate period furniture.
The villa's owner, Anna, is a fabulous host and she loves to visit with her guests. She also enjoys offering suggestions and ideas for day trips, restaurants, and activities. Our stay at the villa included simple but delicious meals of pasta, seafood, fresh artisan bread, and local vegetables, which was an extra cost but well worth the effort. A nearby winery sells several fine varieties of inexpensive, high quality red wine.
We cannot wait to go back!

Notes:
We distinguish ourselves not only by the beauty of the house, its location and tranquility, but by our great service and continuing efforts to make the experience of vacationing at Villa Gioianna the best it can be. We provide full support on the ground, whether it be helping to find the perfect restaurant, recommending outings, locating the right babysitter. We are continually looking for and implementing ways to make the Villa better and our guests' experience optimal.
