Loved this hotel's location. If you are a fisherman or tow your own boat around it could not be bettered. Our room had stylish decor, a very comfortable bed and was located on the 2nd Floor. The small balcony overlooking Lake Trasimeno was the icing on the cake when it came to unwinding and indulging in a home made gin and tonic whilst watching the sun disappear behind the green rolling Umbrian hills in the distance. The ample breakfast was certainly sufficient to see us through the day no problem.
The staff were all helpful and attentive. The restaurant offered fresh local ingredients in all their dishes and dinner we enjoyed on sadly one and evening there was to be highly recommended. A 3 course meat or fish selection was the choice my wife and myself decided to go for and both of us agreed that it was one of the highlight meals of our 15 day tour of central Italy. Pork loin carpaccio with celery, Pecorino cheese and broad bean ravioli with cherry tomatoes and basil, Roast suckling pig with rosemary potatoes was the servings for the meat menu. I opted for the Fried whiting,Potatoes gnocchi with smoked tench and finished with Lake caught perch fillets in Sangiovese sauce accompanied by a vegetable pie. At this was washed down at the highly efficient and knowledgeable maitre d' Bruno's suggestion, of a a local Magione produced red wine and it proved to be the ideal accompaniment. One very large portion dessert of a fruits of the forest meringue, drlzzled with fresh cream and ice cream on the side which had to be shared between us as it was all we could manage at this stage before finishing with the liquor coffee. Total price for a 1st class dining experience was €76 including 2 large bottle of water and IVA tax. We consider this to be great value for money and would recommend anyone in the vicinity of Lake Trasimeno to seek out this restaurant. Tables were limited on the evening we dined because of all the caravan owners dining there, that tells you something about self catering holidays if nothing else!
