We got lost looking for the B & B we had booked in Perugia, and having passed the gorgeous Lake Trasimeno on our way, we doubled back and happened to snag a room in this super charming B & B inside the old city walls. What a charming spot!
Franco, the lovely manager, saw how frustrated we were from our getting lost and ushered us into his gorgeous tower garden overlooking the entire city and lake, with 2 glasses of white wine!
After he gave us a chice of 2 sweet rooms - no frills but lovely and comfortable.
The breakfast was continental, served in the garden - the view made it gourmet!!!
The town of Castiglione De Lago is absolutely adorable! Not as touristic as other "ancient" towns, positively charming! We walked to the supermarket, grabbed some cheeses, meats, wine and bread and had the most lovely picnic on the lake!
But please - DO NOT MISS THE MONA LISSA Restaurant!!! On a separate review you can see what I think of the meal there!!! Mmmmmmmmm!
Sometimes the most frustrating experiences give light to the most delightful ones - Il Torrione and Castiglione Del Lago certainly prove that!
