The boat trip over from San Feliciano sets the day for a family outing,the children can explore the island with little supervision and run around freely. We have been many times over the years,sometimes taking a picnic lunch,sometimes eating at the seasonal restaurant near the landing (better to make reservations as it's not too large and has great food). Take... More

The lake has 3 islands - two that you can visit by ferry. Polvese Island is the closest to the villa - you can see it from the villa, and take the 20 minute ferry ride from San Felicano. It is a small island and you can walk round it and visit its little beach. There are two excellent restaurants... More

There are opportunities to swim, places to picnic or purchase lunch (both casual and dining). There are several points of historic interest, some nature points to observe and... More

Every evening was perfect - enjoying the delicious, home-cooked food on the verandah over-looking Lago Trasimeno; each evening watching a beautiful sunset over the lake. I walked all... More

My husband and I visited this island last Sunday and found it a really delightful place. There is plenty to do to enjoy a full day out, and the place is very much geared towards families, with ample space and nets for football and volleyball, piers for swimming off, tables and benches for picnics and plentiful walking and cycling tracks....
