About us

Italy_21Feb2010_0456Hi I’m Jan, I love living here and I particularly enjoy sharing my local knowledge and experiences with my guests -especially the local Festas and live music that makes summer here so special. My dream of working for myself and setting up a holiday business has become a reality with two ground floor apartments and lovely swimming pool. I have my own olive grove and my oil is available for sale. I live upstairs with two friendly dogs -Champ a golden Labrador who just loves people and Luna a sweet natured Labrador/Collie cross, who came to live with me after being rescued from a horrible owner. I also have four friendly well behaved cats. Latest editions to the family are six chickens so there there are often fresh eggs for sale too.

Year property purchased: 2000

Why this location?

IMG_1033I first came to Trasimeno Lake 15 years ago on honeymoon and we fell in love with its unspoilt beauty and kept coming back. Later we decided to come here to live. When we first saw the house it took our breath away – the view was so enchanting and we just loved the style of the house. Upstairs was completed but downstairs was a shell – perfect for our plans to construct two holiday apartments. The position was ideal too, a hillside location half way between two villages, easy to find and within comfortable travelling distance of all Umbrian and Tuscan places of interest – and of course beautiful Lago Trasimeno (in fact we are close to three lakes). Despite being in the countryside the autostrada and mainline train station are only 20 mins away making it an ideal location for holidays.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

I am happy to take guests to Festas or hidden delights from tucked away restaurants, local vineyards to hot natural springs. Both apartments are equipped to a high standard with games, books, DVDs and videos, sky TV and WiFi internet access (particularly popular with older children). Children love my pets. The two apartments are available for joint renting which means families and friends can holiday together at a discounted rate. There are plenty of walking & cycling routes nearby and we are very central for visiting all the Tuscan & Umbrian places of interest. Florence & Rome and the Tuscan & Adriatic coasts are accessible by car. In short something for everyone
