About the neighborhood
The area is excellent for walking or cycling. A number of circular walks start from the castle, taking you through the rolling, wooded Umbrian countryside, filled with wild flowers, birds and butterflies. A pair of hoopoes can often be seen in the castle grounds, and wild boar on the road in the evening dusk. Heading further out, Castiglion Fosco (10 minutes by car) offers a small grocers (alimentari), bar, pharmacy, post office and restaurant. Tavernelle (15 minutes) is larger, with supermarkets, banks, petrol station, bars, shops etc. Castiglion del Lago, with its old town and 16th Century castle overlooking Lake Trasimeno is about 45 minutes away.
