Wonderful hostel on Polvese Island in the Lake Trasimeno. Even though it's officially a hostel, it feels more like a wonderful family-run B&B or hotel with caring owners. My girlfriend and I stayed at the Fattoria Il Poggio for 3 nights (2 nights initially, but we really liked it and decided to stay an extra night) and had a wonderful time. Here are a few facts:
+ Simply put, there is everything you need (bar, garden, wi-fi, ...)!!
+ The dinner is excellent for a ridiculously cheap price (two courses for 12 €)
+ Getting there is easy, even though it's on an island in the middle of Lake Trasimeno
+ Parking is free in San Feliciano about 50-100m away from the ferry.
+ Take a ferry at the only peer there is; it takes 10min and runs every 1:10 hours from 9am to 7pm, weekends till 11pm, ~5€ roundtrip per person
+ On the island, it's a 5min walk to the hostel; if you have luggage, the owners are happy to get you with their car
+ In case you miss a ferry (or there is a strike by the boating company), the owners are happy to take you with their own speed boat

- The Farm is located in the Natural Park of the Polvese island and offers rooms and apartments equipped with all comforts and a magnificent view of the lake and its colours. It is unique in its kind: an accommodation where the welcoming and friendly environment, large garden with sun loungers, hammocks and games, combined with the typical and genuine cuisine using locally grown biological products, herbs and home-grown organic fruit that is served in summer in the garden overlooking the lake, make it the ideal place for those who love peace, good food and the outdoors life. Ideal for romantic getaways and vacations with children, as well as a great starting point for visiting the art cities of Umbria and Tuscany. ... more less
