Condo/Apartment
Cypressa on the ground floor includes all mod-cons and is decorated in traditional style with white plastered walls, beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors inside with shady stone terraces outside. Cypressa has proven extremely popular with our guests last year. As one of them put it: “we have been so glad finally to have found a holiday apartment which is just right for the two of us – most of the others would have been simply too big”. Cypressa is a large studio that sleeps two, in double or single beds according to preference. An extra guest bed or cot can be provided by arrangement. All mod cons are available: a large and comfortable seating area, a dining table and chairs, chests of drawers and a large built in wardrobe. The separate kitchen is well equipped with implements ...Cypressa on the ground floor includes all mod-cons and is decorated in traditional style with white plastered walls, beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors inside with shady stone terraces outside.

The separate kitchen is well equipped with implements and crockery besides dishwasher, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. The shower room is equipped with a bidet, lavatory and a separate section with a washbasin. One of the most charming features of Cypressa is its private outdoor dining area a structure we call, for lack of a better word, the gazebo. The vine covered summer-house offers splendid views of distant hillsides that are thickly covered by forests, with olive groves and vineyards on the lower slopes. No wonder the region is called Umbria Verde, or Green Umbria! The rich vegetation all round attracts a colourful variety of wildlife. The most magical of all, perhaps, are the fireflies. Throughout early summer they appear as soon as evening has fallen, the darkness patterned by their pulsing light as they float past. The stars, it seems, have come down to earth… Wahing & Ironing kit, Cot etc, video/DVD available on request. Fax and internet as necessaryMore

About the neighborhood
Lake Trasimeno (128 square km - the fourth largest Italian lake) is 20 minutes drive away.

The best beaches for swimming are just below Castiglione, near Tuoro and near the fishing village of Torricella with, best of all, on Isola Polvese, the largely uninhabited island reached by boat from the tourist village of San Feliciano. Exquisite Food and Wine - At our weekly markets in Tavernelle and by the lakeside at nearby Castiglione del Lago everything is seasonal and the furthest import is from Sicily. Besides local fresh vegetables, olive oil from the hills and wine from our neighbors, the most important ingredient in the cuisine of Umbria is the tr...
