About lola O'Donovan
We are a couple from Dublin with four grown-up children and 4 grandchildren looking forward to retirement in the green heart of Italy. We designed the house in two apartments to give us some privacy and space for our children and their friends when they come to stay with us. Each apartment has its own kitchen and living room area and separate patios / entrances. The property can be used either as two apartments or ideally with extended family or two families as a single house. The photo is of all the family enjoying a meal in the house!
lola O'Donovan purchased this villa in 2004
Why lola O'Donovan chose Panicale
We went there on vacation in 2003 and thought we had landed in heaven! TheTrasimeno area is part of Umbria but culturally and geographically it straddles both Umbria and Tuscany. It is in the exact centre of Italy and is half-way between Rome and Florence. It is an area which is easily accessible but at the same time secluded. A veritable treasure chest, containing a large part of Italy's Renaissance art, as well as much of the art of ancient and medieval times.
What makes this villa unique
Borgo degli Olivi is in the centre of Italy near Lake Trasimeno on the Umbrian/Tuscan border and is at the heart of historical and cultural Italy. The local tourist board claim that 20% of the world's cultural heritage lies within a two hour drive of Lake Trasimeno. Rome, Florence and Siena are within easy reach with Perugia, Assisi and Cortona on your doorstep. There are also many historic walled hill villages in the area waiting to be discovered. The jewel among them, Panicale, is within 5 km of the house. There are many fine restaurants and cafés close by and you will find yourself pleasantly surprised at both the quality and the price! There are weekly markets in most of the local towns where one can purchase fresh farm produce (vegetables & fruit) as well as excellent locally produced wine and olive oil. The locals can be great fun! if required we can arrange for some locals to cook a special meal in the house which guests have found very entertaining
