I teach literature, from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: Virgil, Dante, Boccaccio, Petrarca, and Ariosto, among others. I'm now retired and I decided after many years of work to buy a splendid home in Umbria, Panicale. This is the exactly location I had in mind part of my life, where I can relax and enjoy with all my family and friends.
My Villa is managed by our host Katia from Panicale, she will be happy to reply to you to all your questions. Please feel free to contact her!!! Have a nice holiday to our Villa!!!
In their literary works, 'The Aeneid' and the 'Divine Comedy,' Virgil and Dante tell us of their journey in the Lake Trasimeno area, Panicale, and of the inspirations they found in this beautiful Etruscan city. Being in Panicale allows me to share the culture and the beauty that inspired these poets.
Panicale allows me the opportunity to visit its Etruscan Museum which exposes all kinds of Etruscan artistic expressions--terracotta vases, jewelery, and much more-- that have been found in the territory of Lake Trasimeno.
I fell in love for this wonderful Villa, because It is a 18th century stone Farmhouse with private pool on the Tuscany Umbria border. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a luxury holiday in privacy, space and comfort. Encounter the rural culture of this charming undiscovered region of Italy in an authentic stone villa, with pool, that has been recently renovated to the highest standards to create a home from home.
In 2010 I and my husband after to have work for all our life in Belluno,on the north of Italy, We decided to buy this lovely Villa with a spectacular view of the Lake Trasimeno located between Panicale and Paciano. This is an historical Villa with a splendid view of the rolling countryside and the Lake Trasimeno, close to restaurants, museums and other amenities. Its serene charm appeals to the artist in all of us and somehow brings us closer to the true lifestyle of the Panicalesi people who inhabit the town. A remarkable experience, not to be missed!
