About the property

Agriturismo Frattavecchia is an ancient owner's house, entirely built in red bricks, the typical handmade construction material of Trasimeno lake region. We are at Frattavecchia village, very close to Castiglione del Lago city.

For the last two centuries, many generations of peasants families have lived dedicating themselves to the cultivation of typical crops using the fertile soil of Trasimeno.

The two former upstairs flats, the great granary and wine cellar,and the groundfloor stables are now 7 comfortable apartments for families and groups, three on the groundfloor and four on the top floor. All the apartments are furnished according to the local tradition, but with many comforts: a living room, a fully equipped cooking area, heating system and bathroom with shower. All apartments are similar, but we tried to make each one unique. Some are equipped with fireplace, others have a small loft with a wood stair to create an atmosphere from the old times.

Each apartment has its independent entrance from outside, and there is external garden furniture for outdoor meals. The impressive construction is sweetened by two external stairs - South and North - which lead the garden to the upstairs apartments. The panoramic swimming pool, the tennis court, the10 - minute walking lake, the huge garden and the hundreds of olive groves surrounding the main house, contribute to create a special atmosphere, full of relax and tranquillity.

For those who love other sports there is also the possibility of practicing them; just a few kilometres away from Frattavecchia, there are horse riding areas, sailing boats, golf court.

Relaxing and quietness are, for sure, pilars for a vacation at Agriturismo Frattavecchia. Though, a stay with us means mainly the possibility of enjoying arts, culture and traditions, since we are very close to important “cities of arts” within Tuscany and Umbria regions. A very strategic position for a trip between past and present.

Very close from us there is Castiglione del Lago, a medieval castle town over Trasimeno lake. It’s old center forms a peninsula “invading” the lake. Castiglione del Lago is member of “Borghi piu belli d’Italia” and “Citta Slow” which are associations which assigns the most beautiful Italians burghs and those who preserve an old rhythm of life, slow and peaceful. In the western part of the city there is the Palazzo Ducale, built by Ascanio della Corgna, an old nobleman part of one of the most important families during the 16th century. Inside you can admire several paintings, some of them from Niccolo Circignani, and continue your route till the medieval city walls.

We suggest to the lovers of gastronomy to try the local restaurants of Castiglione del Lago and surroundings; all of them cook their specialities ( among them fishes from our lake) with the best extra virgin olive oil produced in our area, and serve their dishes with splendid local wines.

Nearby our agriturismo there are beautiful villages such as Panicale, Paciano, Piegaro, Città della Pieve, Tuoro, Magione, Passignano and also two of the three islands of the lake which can be reached by boat: Polvese and Maggiore. These villages, all of them have medieval origins, are linked by a common historical and artistical background. Tuoro was the “stage” of the famous Battaglia di Annibale (Hannibal’s Battle) in 517 b.C., between the carthaginian troops and romans guided by Caio Flaminio. A local and traditional handycraft market is also present in this area, as a sign of the importance of these places in remote times.

And there are also Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Montepulciano, Siena, Orvieto, Firenze and Rome…all of them complete the ideal travel into arts, splendid nature and landscapes of the center part of Italy…all of them easily reachable by train or car.

Every day you can choose one of these destinations and come back at the end of the day to relax in the swimming pool, to play tennis, to read a book immersed in the silence of our olive grove, or simply to sit down while you admire the landscape of our lake, our countryside and the Tuscanian and Umbrian hills which surround our place, sensations that just Agriturismo Frattavecchia can offer to you.

Let arts, architecture, culture and people, landscapes, old villages ispire and enrich you. As it has been inspiring many poets and musicians along the years.
