Lake Trasimeno villas - A vacation near the waterside and vineyards
With a Lake Trasimeno villa
, you will embark on a multi-faceted experience of
the things that make Italy such an enjoyable and unforgettable travel
destination. Lake Trasimeno is the largest Italian lake south of the Po River,
offering views of the lush olive groves, delicate vineyards, and green hills
that make this area of Italy so unique.
On the west side of the lake, near Tuscany, you may sample the region's
voluptuous products, including sweet fruits, and hearty vegetables, and of
course wine. Your Lake Trasimeno villa will be a true get-away from the grind of
daily life, and you will find that the small nearby towns offer you the best of
the local culture with much left to be discovered.
Castiglione del Lago boasts the longest shore of any of the towns because it
sits on the only prominent peninsula of the lake. Age-old stories suggest that
this peninsula was formed by the ancient Romans to link an island to the
mainland. Jump in your rental car and hop between these adorable towns. You will
find remains of castles spotted throughout the area as well as a crumbling tower
near Passignano that gives evidence to the town's historical duty to control the
road from Trasimeno to Perugia.
A fun day trip from your Lake Trasimeno villa
involves taking a boat into the
lake and visiting one of the three isles. Isola Maggiore is the only inhabited
isle, and it is fun to imagine what this old fishing village looked like in the
14th century, the height of its lifespan. A favorite pastime of both locals and
travelers is to sit at a cafe on the shore of the lake, relishing a delicious
cone of gelato while singing your favorite tune from the jukebox. Your Lake
Trasimeno villa is a treasure chest of relaxation where the only essential task
is to watch the sun set over the lake's beautiful waterfront.
