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.

MORE THAN WE HOPED OR DREAMED OF!

  • 5 of 5

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

Beautiful view and Oustanding home

  • 5 of 5

The view is amazing and the house has a lot of loving touches. There are many special small amenities, small appliances that are well thought out. The muiltiple outside areas are peaceful and inviting. The inside is fabulous. I cant think of a more well appointed house. Barbara drove us in town the first night after an exhausting drive. Very sweet. The house is easy to find once you drive it one time, but I would recommend that you arrive in the day the first time so you get the hang of it. It is not hard once you have done it once. The view of the island makes it all the more fun to go to by ferry. Lots to do in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot, we are very happy you did enjoyed Villa Primaluce atmospheres, Umbria and Tuscany are so closed from here, so you could reach lots different medieval towns.. If someone loves nature would love either to spend here his family vacation, as you did! We do appreciate your kind review, thanks! Best Wishes. Barbara & Leonardo

Great central location for exploring Umbria/Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely maintained property with great charm. Our party of 7 had plenty of room both inside and outside the house. The location is very peaceful with wonderful views to the lake and neighboring farms. We enjoyed the sounds of songbirds, roosters and a turkey every morning. The house is within easy driving distance of Cortona, and we made day trips to Perugia, Gubbio, Montepulciano, Pienza and Florence. Barbara and Leo have done a great job renovating the house and filling the property with blooming plants. Highly recommended!

cosy stone-house with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house atop Lake Trasimeno with a fantastic view! Barbara and Leonardo are really kind and attentive hosts which convey a feeling-at-home-atmopshere from the first minute we arrived. The rooms and bathrooms are new furnished, in which they tastefully match to the surrounding of the house. The mattress of our bed was very comfortable, so we could sleep very relaxed and we even had a spendid view towards the countryside and the lake. The tranquility is absolutely perfect for relaxation! It's just a short drive to Tuscany, but also to Perugia, Assisis and other places in Umbria. Next time we definitely have to jump in the pool...there sadly wasn't any time left. But, we sat down outside cosily for breakfast and enjoyed the atmosphere of the house and the garden. Also the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. If there would be some more couples and families, there is enough space for a nice come-together, but there are also some corners to have a quite time for yourself/s (like different terraces, couches in front of the chimney - very cosy! the breakfast-place and others)! And there are a lot of books and games which invide you in the evening or if the weather is bad (which we didn't have).

We didn't need the offered internet access at all.

We are looking forward to see Barbara and Leo again very soon :) and wish them all the best!

Luxe,calme,générosité

  • 5 of 5

les derniers Kms sur une piste cahotique sont un peu pénibles

L'on oublie tout en arrivant:

-maison superbe

-panorama splendide sur le lac

-propriété sécurisée et close

-cuisine richement dotée

-salon très agréable,pour profiter des feux de cheminée

-plusieurs terrasses,pour passer des moments conviviaux en groupe ou avec un peu d'intimité

-propriétaires très soucieux de la réussite de votre séjour,en contact par mail lorsqu'ils sont absents de la propriété

-emplacement parfait ,pour ceux qui souhaitent visiter Sienne,Cortone,Assise,Perugia,Gubbio,Spoleto,Orvieto...

Pour conclure :offre rare!!!
