We have stayed in La Casseta at Podere Pescia 5 times over the past 3 years and have always had a wonderful time. Giancarlo and Urszula make you feel very welcome. The apartment is spotlessly clean and provided with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. Castiglione del Lago is a wonderful place - excellent restaurants, beautiful countryside and very... More

We were looking for someplace to use as a home base to tour the surrounding hill towns and hit the jackpot with this place. We literally couldn't ask for anything more ideal. The proprietor, Giancarlo, did everything he could to make us feel at home. The place itself is lovingly tended and manicured like a fine mansion and the location... More

We stayed here for three nights, in order to visit the lake of Trasimento with its surrounding old and interesting villages. The room with bathroom we had was very clean, breakfast was vast (you need to boil the eggs yourself to make sure you get the correct quality - I made a mistake with this), the owner is very friendly...

Giancarlo Caponeri is a genius. He helps people find properties in Umbria, project manages the restoration and enables dreams turn into realities. He owns this pretty country house/bed& breakfast which is comfortable and very peaceful. Easy to travel to the beautiful towns of Umbria and the delights of Tuscany. Five minutes away and you are in Castiglione Del Lago where... More
