How far is your apartment from the nearest train station or bus stop?
The bus stop is across the road – but I would not rely on that to get around. You really need a car. The nearest train stations are 10-15 minutes drive either side of Gioiella in Castiglione del Lago (direction Florence) or Chiusi (direction Rome)

Are there shops nearby to buy essentials?
The closest shop is 2 minutes walk from the villa. You can purchase anything you need. Of course Bar Pub La Ruota is 1 minute away. For a bigger supermarket shop COOP and LIDL are in Castiglione del Lago as well as a number of smaller shops. For Italian clothes and designer outlets the closest one is Val di Chiana Outlet Village for lots of sport shops, mid-range fashion retail and Italian kitchenware. For high-end designer goods, The Mall near Florence is unbeatable.

Three rooms have king beds – one room has an additional single bed. The 4th room has a double bed.

Can we have a party?

You are in the countryside so no need to worry too much about noise level. Please enquire for help with private chef, party catering, cleaning or wedding planning.

Please leave your holiday home clean and tidy at the end of your stay, which includes all equipment and utensils and please put out the rubbish into the appropriate recycling bin.

Yes please. Italy is very conscientious about separating plastics out and different bins are provided at the Villa.

Where you’ll be

Castiglione del Lago, Umbria, Italy

Nestled in the sweet rolling hills of Italy’s green heart, on the border of Umbria & Tuscany, is the enchanting village of Gioiella. Depending on who you ask “Gioiella” means little gem- or little joy. Either way, it sums it up perfectly.
In the historic village of Gioiella, you are a few steps from wine and coffee at Bar Ruota. Fresh bread and groceries at the local Conad shop. The largest supermarket for a ‘big’ shop is in COOP in Castiglione del Lago - just 15mins drive
Smack-bam in the middle of the Tuscan wine-lands of Montepulciano, a pleasant drive from Florence and Rome, 15 minutes from Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by the Umbrian countryside, you have food, wine, history and art Medieval villages. Gorgeous hikes, bike riding. Montepulciano, Chiusi, Cortona, Pienza, and the hill top towns of Trasimano: Panicale, Paciano, Città della Pieve, Pozzuolo, Vaiano and Passignano are all around you
Rome, Florence, Siena and the Val d'Orcia are perfect daytrips. Or why not relax in the hot springs of Bango Vignolo or Bagni San Fillippo.
Vineyards, hilltop towns, natural hot springs, Etruscan remains, museums, art galleries, islands, restaurants, artisans, farmer’s and antique markets are all waiting to be explored.
The olive oil is from the garden
The unique wines of Umbria are from three native grapes: the Trasimeno Gamay (or Gamay Perugino), the Grechetto and the Sangiovese.
The vines grow on the hills of Castiglione del Lago, from Panicale, Paciano, Città della Pieve, Pozzuolo, Vaiano to Agello.
Most vineyards have ‘vino sfuso’ which is Italian for wine-by-the-gallon’ ;-)
-Poggio Bertaio
On the drive to Castiglione del Lago you will see and unobtrusive sign. Do stop! Do knock! Do drink!!
- Madrevite
Nestled between two lakes, Lake Trasimeno and Lake Chiusi.
Apart from spectacular wine you can buy Fagiolina del Trasimeno - ancient Etruscans beans that nearly went extinct.
- Podere Marella
Organic Umbrian wine! Yay!
There are undisputed delicacies of Umbria—extra virgin olive oil, truffles, porchetta (suckling pig), pici, salami, and prosciutto, cheeses, lentils, fish from Lake Trasimeno and much more
