Heaven with a lakeview

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed here last week as a base for exploring the Tuscany region and we could not have chosen a more beautiful, authentic Tuscan villa. Everything was so thoughtfully provided for by our hosts. We were warmly greeted by the lovely Marianna with Prosecco and snacks and shown around the home. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We stayed cozy by the huge fireplace every night, drank wine, and recounted the day's travels. We will all have wonderful memories of our stay here for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Barbara!

Private villa in Umbria! We felt like we were in a castle! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time staying in this luxury villa in Umbria! 5 women, plenty of space to relax and enjoy alone time, as well as several big Italian meals at the many dinner tables inside and out. We had a chef the first night, and were introduced to wonderful foods and delightful new friends! Barbara and Leo were so sweet, helped us with our itinerary as well as offered suggestions for some amazing cuisine on our day trips. Our favorite day trip was to the Montefalco wine region - the views were more beautiful that Tuscany, in our opinion, and the wine was simply the best we've ever had! We recommend this home to anyone who wants to have peace and quiet, but still be close enough to see it all!

Stunning villa with so many lovely touches, to make your stay so memorable!

  • 5 of 5

From the warm welcome from Barbara and Leonardo to the stunning views and absolute comfort of the Villa your stay is sure to be amazing. We had so much fun by the lovely pool, cooking up a storm in the well equipped kitchen, enjoying excursions to the lovely local villages and generally feeling like we had arrived in paradise. The beds are very comfortable and the villa had so many lovely spots to just chill and remember what is important in life! A wonderful place for a very special getaway.

A Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about my family’s experience on vacation at Villa Primaluce. Barbara and Leonardo were perfect and kind hosts. We were greeted with an aperitif of local Italian foods to start our stay.

Tucked away on a hillside overlooking Lago Trasimeno the shear views brought the essence of calm needed on a vacation. Situated in central Italy, we were able to adventure to many cites in Umbria and Tuscany to taste the delicious food, see spectacular Duomo’s, Palazzos, and countryside, that were breathtaking.

The town of Passignano sul Trasimeno, situated on the lake, was a short ride to shop, eat and stroll the gorgeous lakefront.

Villa Primaluce accommodations were more than I expected. The countryside villa was fully restored and met our many needs and my grandchildren also enjoyed the feel of a medieval stone villa.

Thank you Barbara and Leonardo for a wonderful family vacation reunion.

Pure magic

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend a week! We were 3 couples traveling together, and each having our own room and bathroom, plus AC in each bedroom was just great. The location and the thick stone walls made the need for AC less acute, but there were several days of 90+ weather when the AC was welcome at night.

Barbara and Leonardo were charming hosts. They were away for much of the time we were there once we arrived, but were almost instantly available on WhatsApp when minor problems like a clogged shower drain occurred.

The kitchen was very well-equipped, and we made many of our own meals. We also had a chef come in one evening and cook with us. Sitting on the patio and overlooking Lake Trasimeno while eating was simply amazing-I don't think you could ask for a more peaceful and beautiful setting.

The location at the border of Tuscany and Umbria was ideal. We took day trips to Assisi, Siena, and Florence (the last a bit of a stretch from here, but doable), plus more local days to places like Montepulciano, Perugia (toured a wonderful winery outside Perugia, and a trip on the ferry out to Isla Maggiore for a hike and wonderful lunch by the water.

The only negative we could find is that the villa is a bit hard to find (Barbara and Leonardo actually drove out to find us when we got lost!) at first and is up a very poor road. The owners told us that major rains in May really washed out the road. It was a rough 10 minute drive up and down the mountain each day (though we saw a wild boar on one trip!). We would urge those coming to the villa to rent a small SUV or the like with higher ground clearance, to access this place, a suggestion that the owners also made when we booked. On the other hand, it was like having your own private mountain villa with pool and view. All in all, a magical experience.

What Barbara and Leonardo have created at Villa Primaluce is truly special! They are SUPREMELY talented and gracious hosts! We booked the villa for our family of 8 to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. From the very start, both Barbara and Leonardo were committed to making our week long celebration as special as they could. We arrived later than planned and Barbara surprised us with a delicious spread of appetizers to welcome us while toasting our arrival with Prosecco. They arranged for delicious local wines to be at the villa, and at our request, hired a most fantastic (and fun)cook for an indescribable birthday feast on our last evening. We learned to make several Umbrian dishes and Barbara oversaw that the details of the evening were perfect. It was a fantastic memory our family will never forget!

Everything about this villa is 5 Star accommodations. The pictures of Villa Primaluce are wonderful, yet we were in awe as we experienced it! There are jasmine draped patios, shaded terraces, sunlit grounds overlooking the beautiful Lake Trasimeno and a quiet garden with picnic tables. Perfect for our family gatherings and yet wonderful when you desired a quiet space to enjoy the beauty alone. The pool is a highlight! It is a most beautiful design and surrounded by lavender, roses, and the most comfy chaise lounges. It's where we enjoyed resting from some of our longer travel days, and dancing on our last evening!

All the amenities are 5 Star! Having 4 beautifully appointed, large bedrooms, each with comfy beds and spacious, private bathrooms was a true luxury! The kitchen was gourmet and easy to navigate. One evening we spontaneously ended up cooking a fantastic meal together and enjoyed it on the patio with Italian music!

The villa is a slightly remote, but in the very best way. It was a respite and offered us sweet relaxation as we were surrounded by the beauty they have created. The only problem we experienced was that it was so beautiful it was hard to leave on the days we explored the Umbrian villages nearby! Florence was less than 2 hours away, and many of our favorite Umbrian places, less than an hours drive. We enjoyed, Montepulciano, Assisi, Orvieto, Spello, Florence, Perugia, and truffle hunting in Pettino. We think this is the perfect location!

We can't thank Barbara and Leonardo enough for making our once in a life time family celebration more than we had hoped or dreamed for!

Don't miss being blessed by Villa Primaluc
