The cottage is about 2.5 km from the village of Passignano sul Trasimeno, immersed in the beautiful nature of the Umbrian countryside. In a unique panoramic position, on a hill overlooking Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by 7 hectares of olive trees, stands the farm "La Volpaia "ideal place for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Lake Trasimeno is bathing and is the fourth lake of Italy as a dimension, there are 3 islands, the Major is inhabited and we live there permanently about 30 or 40 people the only one with a small village, the Minor Island is private and not connected by ferries, while La Polvese, which is the largest, is very naturalistic as an oasis of peace.

My and my family stayd two week in La Volpaia. The property was clean and well maintained, owners were friendly and helpful -all was OK. Location is perfect for people who want to discover Umbria and Tuscany - a lot of really interesting places to see - Perugia, Assisi, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Orvieto, Gubbio, Arezzo, Crotona, Sorano, Pitigliano, Narni, Amelia, Todi, Siena, etc. etc. I reccomend this property for all people who do not like city noise and traffic.

Do not miss in Umbria

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at La Volpaia at tue end of October for fuor days and we spent a really nice time. Tue location si fantastic and the view of Lake Trasimeno si not be missed especially at sunset. Rooms are tastefully furnished, breakfast is rich and the cakes baked by the owner Nadia deserve to be tasted. You can do many excursions in the beautiful Umbria but also Tuscany is not very far away.

our wonderful stay in the villa La Volpaia

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the villa, Nadia and Stefano, are very helpful and friendly.

They are always available to give all kind of information about the environment.

The villa is located on a little hill surrounded by olivetrees. The sight on the lake of Trasimeno is like a fairy tale, especially when the sun goes down. There is a nice terrace on which you can read and eat and admire the panorama.

The house itself is well equipped and comfortable and so are the bedroom and the two bathrooms.

In the neighbourhood there are a lot of possibilities to visit, for example the capital of Umbria, Perugia with its historical centre. Also Castigliano is worth to visit, especially on market day; so are Montepulciano, Arezzo, Cortona and so on.

The weather in Umbria is nearly always very beautiful.

We will visit La Volpaia again ! And we thank Nadia and Stefano for their delicious olives and tomatoes from their own large yard.

Bel posto, pulito, rilassante e con un panorama stupendo......Corrisponde alle foto e descrizioni. Consiglierei ad amici (cosa che stò già facendo) di soggiornarci. Ottima accoglienza da parte dei proprietari. Bravi.
