About the neighborhood
Casa Julian is located on a beautiful hillside location overlooking fields of sunflowers, vineyards and olive groves just 2 km from two small villages, Gioiella & Porto. There are lots of lovely walks and cycling nearby. We are 10 km to Castiglione del Lago and Lake Trasimeno, 8 km to Chiusi (Tuscany) and Lake Chiusi. 4 km to Lake Montepulciano. Boating & some water sports on Lake Trasimeno with beaches & lots of restaurants and cafes. Within easy reach of all Tuscan/Umbrian places of interest - Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi, Gubbio, Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano. Rome and Florence are 2.5 &1.5 hours respectively by train or car. We recommend car hire as public buses are few and far between and to ensure you can visit all the interesting hill top towns. Our nearest airport is Perugia and R...
Getting around
Car hire is strongly recommended. One of the loveliest things round here is to visit the beautiful small medieval hilltop towns and for this you will definately need a car There are two railway stations nearby (10 minutes and 20 minutes respectively) from which you can easily travel to Florence, Rome, Siena, Orvieto but you would need a car or taxi to reach them. Taxis are plentiful from Chiusi station but rare from Castiglione del lago station. Buses are almost non existent but one does run past our door once a day!
