"For one week this year, we lived life the way it was meant to be lived, spending it in a medieval village perched atop a hill in Umbria, Italy. The Artisans House was perfect for day trips as well as just relaxing with a Cappuccino in the local Piazza. The views are amazing, the people are friendly, and the food from the local markets was so fresh and delicious. The sausage from the butcher, made fresh each morning, was like nothing we have ever tasted. Our rental agent made sure everything was perfect for us. The only bad thing about this trip was that it ended too soon. One week is just not enough."

"we spent a week with 12 friends [6 dutch couples between 58 and 75] in Antico Tabaccaio; with it's 7 sleepingrooms and 5 bathrooms it is very comfortable. We did not use the nice livingroom on the first floor because of beautiful weather the whole week! So we ate all the meals outside on the covered porch with wonderful view on Paciano and Panicale and every evening a beautiful sunset during dinner. The kitchen is very well equiped. The large swimmingpool was used a lot. In the nearby villages we could by good food: like lasagna from the butcher in Panicale or arristo from the butcher in Paciano. And last but not least perfect pizza's from l'oca bruciata in Paciano. Katia surprised us the first day with delicious canneloni, grilled vegetables, red wine from nearby winery Querciolana and a fruitcake. She also had the BBQ prepared! We had a wine-tasting at the Querciolana. We visited Perugia with a guide [www.todiguide.it] as well as Cortona [www.omniaguide.com]. The owner of Antico Sipario, Claudio, is a guide and he explained us the history of mediëval Paciano and showed us beautiful paintings that are normally 'hidden'. In Panicale and in Perugia [collegio del cambio] we saw the paintings of Perugino; and in the church of Panicale the paintings of Masolino and Caporali. We made two walks of almost 3 hours in the hills above the villages, with beautiful views. These hills are very well suited for mountainbikers. Nearby Cortona we also visited the Celle of Franciscus and a famous sculpturist, Andrea Roggi. Panicale is the ideal place from where you can visit within one hour places like Montepulciano, Cortona, Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, etc. and return late afternoon to the quiet landscape above lake Trasimeno. Above all the people of Panicale make you feel at home; Katia, Linda [Conad shop], Aldo [bar Gallo] and all the others!
We will certainly come back!"

"My husband and I stayed in Sogno Panicalese for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! Katia had a small wedding gift waiting for us and arranged drivers to take us on tours. She was available day and night and we are so grateful for all of her hospitality! We loved Panicale. It is a charming village and we enjoyed exploring it and the beautiful surrounding areas, dining at the various cafés and restaurants, and meeting kind locals and visitors. The house is one of a kind and its history is amazing. We truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back again soon!"

"We spent a lovely week with 3 families in this wonderful villa with the breathtaking view over the umbrian hills and the Trasimeno lake. The house is very clean and the furniture is very nice. Around the Villa there is a nice garden and the most fantastic thing is the swimming pool on the lower level! Katia was very available and helpful with everything which made you feel really 'at home'. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!"
