Locanda Poggioleone

Reviewed August 10, 2013

Having just returned from a two week tour of Italy, I would love to take a moment to recommend Casitglione Del Lago. We will be forever indebted as our classic Alfa Romeo decided to break down some 4km away on a dirt road somewhere near Pozzuolo. Following a less than helpful attempt to call a European Breakdown service, we managed to arrange with the wonderful assistance of the staff, a local truck to pick us up within the hour, take us to the hotel, and repair the car overnight. Over and above this, the food is all cooked and sourced locally and was an absolute delight. I would also recommend you delve into some of the local wines on offer.

In short, the view of the lake, the wonderful pool, outstanding staff and great food (not to mention breakdown service!) gets a full recommendation from us.

On a recent trip to Italy, we were recommended to stay at Locanda Poggioleone in Umbria. It was truly the most memorable stay during our vacation. The grounds are simply gorgeous with fabulous views. Our room was beautifully decorated and the room equipped with luxury linens and bathroom was spacious and spotless. Our stay included breakfast and dinner with Chef Fernanda who is an incredible chef. Her meals were so very delicious, we barely had room for dessert. Francesca and her family were responsive and attentive to all our needs.The hotel is located near the lakes, Cortona, and Montepulciano. Locanda Poggioleone is on my "Best of Umbria" hotels.

This hotel was modern, spacious, well lit, quiet, had beautiful grounds, a lovely dining area, a view of the lake from our upstairs room (#33). The room had a safe/fridge/ and a very large tub with separate shower. Despite being 12 yrs old (we couldn't believe it was that old) it looks new and is very well maintained. THE BEST PART IS THE STAFF. Everyone was gracious and very helpful. We opted to take a cooking class from Daniella and had a marvelous time. She did a magnificent job of showing us how to make pasta on a pasta guitar, along with several traditional Italian dishes. It was well worth it. They use ingredients from their own gardens, olive groves, and vineyards. The quality of this place was well worth the price. We highly recommend it.

We had an outstanding stay for three days at this wonderful home. The setting is beautiful, overlooking Lake Trasimeno, the house elegant, and the hospitality wonderful. Fernanda and her team are great hosts, the food is excellent, and the local wines are lovely. It also is ideally located to tour hill cities in Umbria such as Montepulciano, Citta de la Pieve, and Cortona. An absolutely wonderful place that is definitely worth a visit.

We had one of the best stays in Italy! We felt home from the beginning of our stay. Such a nice family and staff and especially the cook Fernanda who made us 5 star dinners every day and breakfast with great tastes. Umbria is one of the most beautiful parts of Italy and in combination with this locanda, it makes it a stay to remember and is locked in our minds. We wish the family and staff al good wishes for private and business and we hope to come back someday!
With best regards,

We just spent one night here and were a little sorry it wasn't for longer. The hotel is new but built in an old rustic style. Once you are in and past the modern front it really is terrific. The grounds surrounding the pool are well kept up with great views of the hills and the lake. The sitting areas in the restaurant area are cozy and comfortable. Breakfast could be improved but that short coming would not put me off returning. Free wi-fi throughout the hotel.

Antique furniture but ultramodern fittings in the bathroom. Absolute quiet except for the village church tolling the hours. Fernanda's superb cooking. The infinity swimming pool. The superb views over the countryside and Lake Trasimeno in the distance. What else to say? Oh yes, the very affordable room rates. Best reserve half pension - it's a deal as long as it lasts.
