Hilltops crowned with castles and ancient walled towns, breathtaking scenery, cultural and artistic treasures, delicious food, top quality wines, and the warmth of Italian village life welcome you. Perched above the medieval village of Paciano, the villa looks towards Lake Trasimeno and the nearby hills of southeastern Tuscany.
It is an area dominated by agriculture, with silver-leaved olive groves covering the hillsides, and sweeping fields of wheat and sunflowers lying in the plain below. Tidy vineyards abound, producing the delicious wines of the Colli del Trasimeno region. Paciano has fewer than 1,000 inhabitants and is a pretty, peaceful village, with a friendly welcome for visitors. It is recognised as one of the Borghi più Belli d’Italia (the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy), and the 14th century walled historic centre is a gem.
Paciano and the Trasimeno area are at the meeting point of three of Italy’s most beautiful and historic provinces: Arezzo, Siena and Perugia. Within 20 minutes or less by car you can reach the lake, Italy’s fourth largest, and a number of classic small hilltowns: Panicale, Città della Pieve, Castiglione del Lago, and Chiusi in Tuscany, once one of the most powerful Etruscan city-states in pre-Roman times.
Further afield but still within easy reach are some of central Italy’s most famous historic towns, such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Orvieto with its magnificent cathedral, Assisi the birthplace of Saint Francis, Perugia, and the remarkable Val d’Orcia in Tuscany, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
