“Fantastic Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Fabulous hostel (more like a hotel!) and location.
The family running this hostel are fantastic, really welcoming and helpful. They have all amenities you would need, wi-fi (free), bar, food, outside dining/beer garden, toys for children, tv room, etc etc.
Found it to be really clean and very well run. Our room had a private bathroom and this was great. Fabulous view over the lake and proper mosquito nets so no worry about mosquito in your room.
The food was absolutely amazing too-included in the price. Lovely staff. Overall this place is great! Would recommend anyone to go here.

Room Tip: I had a toddler with me and we chose a room with private bathroom which was great. They gae us a tra...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

I stayed here during my Umbria trip for three nights and I absolutely loved it. First of all, the fattoria is on the Isola Polvese, it's a beautiful place, very clean, good facilities. The breakfast is basic but I did get a cappuccino when I asked for it, so no complaints. Where the place shines out is the dinner, excellent food for a low price!! Locals come here by boat in the evening to eat :-)

I also loved the chance to go running on the island, there's even a little beach to go sunbathing, and the evironment is just stunning, the Lago Trasimeno is a beautiful piece of Italy.

The staff was also very helpful, there was a strike during my stay and the owner graciously took me to shore in his speedboot, very cool.

Aside from the strike, I would recommend to rent a car if you plan on exploring the other towns around the lake as there aren't many buses and the train connections to the other towns could be better as well. (which is true for Italy on a whole btw, the minute you want to visit a small town, a car is the best option)
