‘Lazing by the lake where Umbria meets Tuscany’
Welcome to Villa Azurra – a luxurious family villa, sleeping 6 to 8 people, and stunning views over Lago di Trasimeno, whose restaurants, bars and beaches are just a five minute walk downhill.
The villa is set amidst former olive groves, and although an ideal base for getting to know this beautiful and historic region, you will find it difficult to leave the charms of Villa Azurra itself, with its infinity pool and barbecue area set in a beautifully landscaped garden, with mature olives and wild flowers.
Almost every room in the house has spectacular views of the lake – you can lie in bed and gaze at its ever changing colours, or even contemplate it from the bath or shower. Perhaps the jewel though, is the loggia – here you can breakfast, dine or just stretch out and read or doze in the shade, cooled by the breezes drifting up from the lake during the long, warm summer evenings – where else would you want to have your aperitivo?
The villa is a two minute drive from the lakeside village of San Feliciano, which is between Torricella and Magione. Here you can buy all your basics, sample a variety of restaurants and bars, hire a scooter or catch a ferry – these go regularly to the islands or the other picturesque villages around the lake.
San Feliciano is a perfect starting point for exploring the delights of both Umbria and Tuscany, with Perugia (and its airport), Assisi and Cortona all within a half hour drive; and within easy reach are Siena, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Todi, Florence and even Rome.
