Family of travelers sharing our dream 'Casa Colonica' near Lago Trasimeno, halfway between Rome & Florence, on the Tuscan Umbrian border. Huge fresh bright 1st floor apartment, traditionally restored with ancient beams, original doors & terra-cotta floors, & brick arches. Two en-suite bedrooms - one with King, one with Queen bed. Bathrooms fitted in elegantly, both with drop showers, one with claw-foot bath as well. Full kitchen, washing machine, Wireless, TV (only for videos), fireplace in winter, mosquito nets and ceiling fans in summer. Large private deck - great for sunsets, BBQs, sunbathing; rambling olive grove, ground floor portico with Indonesian daybeds; shaded back field - lots of outdoor space to enjoy. Cats & huge dog as well. A lovely, quiet escape to write, unwind, hike or cycle, go by ferry to Trasimeno's islands, relax on the lakefront, or stroll the many adorable ancient hilltop towns.

We are a km in either direction from two small villages (bar for morning cappucino or evening aperativo), small grocery store, and tennis court, and 10 km from both the Etruscan hilltop town of Chiusi, in Tuscany and Castiglione del Lago in Umbria with lakefront beaches, bars, restaurants, and a fortress that is the most famous in Italy. Transportation is almost nonexistent bar the train stations, so we've had guests without transport whom I drop off in the am and pick up in the evening in the towns closest to us.

The joy of this region is experiencing the stunning drives through the Umbrian 'Montefalco' wine region (near Perugia and Assisi) in one direction, and the Crete Senese region of Tuscany with Pienza as the center in the other, so a car really is beneficial. Even if soaking in the thermal pools, or strolling through hilltop towns like Cortona & Montepulciano, & visiting hidden Abbeys like Monte Olivieti is more your thing, we are dead center to many of the gems that the two provinces of Umbria and Tuscany have to offer.


Accesso ospiti

The apartment, their balcony, and all the grounds....olive grove in front, wooded garden in back, walking paths galore.

Interazione con gli ospiti

Dependent on guests. Some like their solitude and are very independent and are given that respect. Others love an evening chat over a glass of wine and a map, planning their drive for the following day. I love plotting itineraries with my guests depending on their preferences whilst on holiday, but totally respect those who've chosen this space for privacy and autonomy,

The house, while restored, is old. 500 years old. Things are delicate - chains on toilets need to be pulled gently, ancient doors bolted properly, boilers reset now and again. Our couches aren't sealed; our floors aren't polished, so we only eat in the kitchen or on the balcony & are looking for similarly considerate guests so that the apartment maintains its fresh natural charm. If you appreciate a simple uncluttered ambiance (and share our hatred of plastic shower curtains and overly lacquered modern floor tiles!) our home is for you. However, If you need a place to bang and crash around or eat Nutella in bed or couldn't really give a toss about understated elegance maybe a place that can withstand the wear and tear might be better suited for you. No smokers please. And if you like cats and our big German Shepherds, all the better. Thank you for reading!

This is a truly magical and special place to stay. The apartment is very spacious, extremely comfortable (the beds were SO comfy), well equipped and really stylishly decorated. It is on the top floor of a stunning house, set amid a glorious, unspoilt landscape of rolling hills. The photos do not do justice to the apartment as one of the best things about staying there is waking up to the wonderful views from all windows. There is a large, well furnished terrace where we enjoyed having breakfast or dining at night. The apartment offers total tranquillity and a unique experience of being surrounded by nature whilst being only a short drive to an excellent supermarket or to the shops and restaurants of Castigliano. We found staying there to be very invigorating as well as great fun as Cynthia and Oliver are kind, attentive and really charming hosts. They went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay, with welcome chilled prosecco, great recommendations, imparting their enthusiasm and love of the area. We really appreciated this as well as their sensitivity. Cynthia was always on hand but never intrusive. Communication was excellent and always easy. On the last evening we shared a delightful meal with them. Their hospitality was truly amazing! We would love to return!!

La demeure est magnifique et l'appartement décoré avec énormément de goût. Il est très spacieux. La terrasse offre une superbe vue sur la campagne environnante. La famille est très gentille. Endroit parfait pour rayonner vers le lac Trasimene ou la région de Perouse.

We had a great time staying at Cynthia and David's. The apartment was beautiful and they were very welcoming and helpful hosts. The beds were super comfortable and the layout of the rooms was ideal for two couples.

Beautiful apartment with stunning views, an abundance of toys for our toddler, to keep her well amused for our stay. Very comfy bed and great showers. Would most definitely recommend to couples or families, the nearby lake helped us to keep cool.

Staying in Cynthia and David's gorgeous and tastefully renovated apartment was such a treat. After spending time in Rome and Florence we couldn't wait to relax in the countryside, and their home fulfilled all our expectations: a beautiful, peaceful setting; great location close to a lovely lakeside town; a short drive from stunning hilltop villages; and kind and gracious hosts. Cynthia was friendly and so much fun to meet - she gave us great recommendations for everything from renting bicycles to the best spots to have coffee and watch the World Cup. The apartment was spacious and stylish, with a kitchen well-equipped for cooking and a living area and patio made for reading, relaxing and taking siestas. We would love to spend more time in the apartment and had such a fabulous time.

We had a fantastic time staying at Casa Paterna. The apartment is beautiful and just as pictured - in fact, better! Cynthia and David were lovely, so sweet and accommodating. The location is perfect with lots of towns to explore in an easy daytrip. We loved every minute of it and it was hard to leave!

My wife, our wee 8-month-old daughter and I stayed at Cynthia's and David's for two weeks and were absolutely captivated by their beautiful house. Our apartment at the top floor was very tastefully and elegantly decorated and we felt at home right from the outset. Since we had our toddler with us and also visited outside of season, we did most of our cooking in the big kitchen which was very well equipped for our needs. Even though it was only March, we still spent some warm, sunny hours on the fabulous terrace. Furthermore, both Cynthia and David were absolutely brilliant hosts, giving us excellent insider tips on what places to see and which local restaurants to visit. Their boys even helped us light the stove when we were out, warming the flat up before we returned in the early evening. We're hoping that they add a few extra guest rooms to the guest portion of the house so we can bring our friends and their kids next time we visit. Can't imagine anyplace else to stay when visiting Umbria, and we absolutely adored every single day we spent there.

The nomadic Yank met the workaholic Brit in China, courted throughout Asia, married in Bali, made a family in Hong Kong, jumped from Bangkok, Tokyo, HK & Sing, quit & traveled Africa & South America, (and worked some more, let's be realistic), sat on a beach at the earth's end and found out they weren't keen to live in each other's home countries, played 'where would you want to live if you could never go home?,' narrowed it to two, spent a month house hunting in each, chose Italy, restored a grand old property, made it their permanent home, are blessed to have friends from far and wide swinging by all the time. As lifelong backpackers, the more people we share this beautiful home with, the more magical a place it becomes...
