This house has been transformed into a personal spa. Built into the gentle sloping side of the hill, on three levels, the top floor has two luxury bedrooms with soft pastel washed walls furnished in beautiful antiques with plush bedcovers each having their own private bathrooms that include hydro massage tubs or showers. And an incredible wide view of Lake Trasimeno, which glimmers like a jewel from sunrise to sunset.The ground floor of the house has been converted into the living area with soft colored walls of patina beige, linseed polished ancient terra cotta floors and ancient dark chestnut-beamed ceilings. This floor consists of the dining room, living room with upholstered furniture and a flat panel TV.

The Pièce de résistance (pardon our French) is the incredible spa room in the subterranean floor. This room has a bank of glass panels that allows you panoramic views that stretch beyond the large stone terrace, the outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi. This room is your own private spa with a large indoor swimming pool in which the water is circulated by a 10 foot waterfall cascading over an illuminated stone wall, a dry sauna and private areas of relaxation with sofas and chaises.
Summer is wonderful on Lake Trasimeno. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this private retreat, you are only minutes away by car to the second largest lake in Italy. At the lake with its man made sandy beaches you will enjoy swimming, volleyball, sailing, windsurfing. and other water activities. There are designated areas for children to play. Chaise lounges, umbrellas and pedalloes can be rented, restaurants and cafes line the beaches. The ferry takes you to two islands where you can trace St. Francis' steps and visit the ruins of his Monastary, admire ladies making lace and relax in the cafe's and restaurants. Enjoy bird scanctuaries near Castiglione, Magione and Lake Montepulciano. Golf in the nearby courses the challenging 9 hole course in Lambourghini, or the 18 hole courses in Perugia and Antonella.

Visit many of St. Francis of Assisi's resting places, take a vineyard tour and tasting, soak in a thermal bath, dine or wine al fresco or just stop for a gelato or cappuccino on the many sidewalk and lakeside cafe's while listening to local musicians, visit one of the many music festivals during the summer including the very famous Umbria Blues, Gospel and Jazz festivals.
