A perfect place to absorb Italian life
If you enjoy outdoor living then Il Giardino di San Michele is perfect for you. With a beautiful garden and several covered outdoor eating areas this villa will delight you. Indoors it is equally pleasing. Lovingly restored and furnished this spacious home will make you feel at home. We were impressed with the quality and quantity of crockery, cutlery, glasses and kitchen equipment.
Il Giardino di San Michele is situated right in the centre of the village so you are never more than two minutes from everything you need - three great restaurants, local fruit & veg, deli, meat, bread and gelato. Bar del Gallo is one of two bars in the piazza and you will delight in your daily visits there.
Panicale is conveniently located for short trips to many of the special places in Umbria and Tuscany, Only 20 minutes away are two rail stations where you can visit Rome, Florence and other places such as Orvieto or Arezzo.
With car hire available in Chiusi, you can't find a better location for your Italian dream than Il Giardino di San Michele in Panicale.
Beautiful Villa with a lovely garden!
The Villa has everything a family needs for an elegant and comfortable vacation. The property is clean and well-maintained. Katia and her staff provide excellent customer service and I would stay here again and again. Panicale is a very welcoming place too and the Villa is a short walk from the city center. It is also a great location for visiting other parts of Umbria and Tuscany. An added bonus at the Villa were the screens on the windows since this is not common in Italy.
Wonderful House, Wonderful Town
This is an absolutely lovely property in our favorite town. The rooms are large and airy with lots of light. Very comfortably furnished, clean and well-maintained. The kitchen is very well-appointed, with room for eight at the table. Or you can eat on the patio, as we did each morning. The most special part is the spacious and sunny garden (very hard to find in Panicale).
You are just a few steps away from Piazza Podesta, with a commanding view of Lake Trasimeno and the hills of Cortona and Montepulciano. We made a habit of enjoying the spectacular sunsets here every evening. And a one-minute walk takes you to Piazza San Michele, the center of Panicale life, where you will find residents (both life-long and expat) and travelers enjoying this magical place.
Our host Katia greeted us with her usual warmth and helpfulness. She is always available to answer questions, and is a pleasure to know.
We rented only the ground floor of the property, plenty big enough for two couples, but the upper floor has two more bedrooms plus a small kitchen, so it could easily accommodate four couples.
All in all, this is a wonderful place to stay!
Outstanding Town, Great Apartment, Good Location
This was our 4th year in a row in Panicale and second year staying at San Michele. Panicale is a wonderful hill town full of charm and this property was ideal for us two years running. The kitchen is fully equipped, the mattresses very comfortable, the "coffee/tea" area is nice, and the side yard is an outstanding addition to the apartment. The apartment was nice and clean, Katia provided great "customer service" as she has the past four years, and we have friends who plan to come back to Panicale after visiting us this year and staying at this same property in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. We take day trips to the many towns close to Panicale (within an hour's drive) and love the local restaurants within the walled town. Italy and Panicale are at the top of our list of travel destinations!!
Best possible place to relax
Beautiful and well maintained property. The garden has a wonderful view and is the perfect place to have a meal or just a glass of wine. We really enjoyed shopping at the local market and cooking in kitchen which was well stocked.
I am looking forward to my next visit!
Wonderful home in the heart of Panicale!
We were fortunate to stay here while in Umbria. The home is beautiful and the garden is as serene as the gorgeous views. Katia was a wonderful host. We're already planning on coming back!
