I'm Steve and I bought this lovely Townhome in 2000, since I fell in love for this delicious medieval village near the Lake Trasimeno and Tuscany area. I've always dreamed about Umbria and Tuscany so I finally decided to find a house there. I love nature, antiques and architecture. Umbria and Tuscany is a perfect combination of those elements and this is why I enjoy living here.
See you in Panicale!
Owner/Property Manager purchased this townhome in 2000
By traveling across Umbria and Tuscany I randomly drove through this lovely medieval town and had a crush on it. So I asked a local what was the name of the town. He told me it was Panicale. I started to visit several properties for sale and found this lovely Etruscan building.
Best combination of nature and history. Walking distance to monuments, Piazza Umberto I, museums, restaurants, cafes, shops and nature.

I have recently returned home after spending two wonderful weeks in an Italian village called Panicale. Panicale with a population of approximately 500 people is situated on the border of Umbria and Tuscany and nestled high above Lake Trasimeno. This village is the ideal ‘base camp’ for day trips, I managed to visit Assisi, Cortona, Perugia, Montepulciano, and Castiglione del Largo and then have the luxury of returning to the peace and quiet of my apartment. I choose to stay at ‘The Artisan’s House’, a well-equipped and exceptionally comfortable apartment which was ideally situated with a short walk from the old gate and the car park area. The apartment overlooked a small, quite park outside the wall on one side and a lovely courtyard on the other - ideal for catching the prevailing breezes.
Equally, my location was only a short walk to the supermarket, the Piazza where there are three restaurants, several small shops and a tourist office. Aldo’s Bar del Gallo is the ‘International Hub’ in the Piazza here people from all walks of life and nationality gather for morning coffee or evening drinks blending effortlessly in with the locals –the atmosphere optimises the friendlessness of Panicale.
My property manager Katia is the ultimate ambassador for Panicale – she assisted in my choice of apartment to ensure it meet my individual needs – greeted me on arrival, ensured I was settled and returned the following day to introduce me to the village. Katia excels in her role – she effortless blends her professional and personal life – she is a real joy to be with and can but not earn the respect of both the owners of the properties she manages, and those of us that come to stay in her wonderful village. Thank you Katia for taking such good care of me – you radiate warmth and joy - I do plan to return on my next trip to Europe.
We are a middle-aged couple that visits Panicale every year for 2 months in late winter-early spring.
We have stayed at the 'Artisan's House' many times, and we love it!
It feels like our home away from home.
Katia and Massimo are not only wonderful hosts, they have become friends. Always ready to help, if need be, and fun to visit with. The apartment is always warm and welcoming upon our arrival each year, and has everything we need to relax, entertain friends, or just sit by the fire with a good book and a glass of local wine.
We love Panicale and the entire Trasimeno area. We recommend having a car, but there is a local bus, too. Panicale has all you could want in a small hill town..and all within easy walking distance. It is a small but well appointed town.
There are bars, restaurants, markets, a bakery, butcher, gift store... important art and really great people!
We can't wait to return to the Artisan's House.. and see our friends, hear the birds and bells, eat fantastic seasonal food...and sip the best Umbrian wines! A presto, Panicale!
I have been visiting Italy for years but this was by far the best way to fully enjoy the food, the music and the sights in Tuscany and Umbria. Staying in one centralized location and doing day trips to your favorite sites is really the way to go. Panicle is very special. You will get to know and enjoy the locals very easily and they are very welcoming and helpful. The most generous and helpful is Katia, who makes sure you have everything you will need. She became a friend to me , my sister and my niece and when we needed help she immediately made sure everything was taken care of. We loved the house, the neighbors and the local Cafe owners, Aldo and Danielle who made sure my coffee was perfect every morning!
This is a special place and it will be high on our "to return" list. Mille grazie Katia!
We have known Panicale for more than 20 years, and it never disappoints us. Our 1st stay at 'the Artisan's House' was delightfully comfortable and the apartment provided a charming base in the heart of the village. Our 'old friends' at Bar Gallo and Ristorante Masolino supplied excellent Umbrian fare, and the warmest of welcomes. We will be back soon.
We love the charming hill town of Panicale -- its people, its wonderful restaurants, its cleanliness, its spectacular views of the valley and Lake Trasimeno, and its proximity to both Umbria and Tuscany. Thanks to an article in "Food and Wine" magazine about chef "mama" at Masolino's Ristorante located in the town square, our interest in Panicale developed. In our search for renting an apartment within the gates of the walled town, we discovered Katia and the love of her hometown. She worked with us with timely communication in finding The Artisian's House for the two of us. She made us feel so welcome upon our arrival and during our stay and was there when needed. Katia is a very special lady as is her family. We left after two weeks with a saddened heart as we loved our time in Panicale and driving to so many hill towns in Tuscany and east into Umbria. We will return in April 2016 with our family to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Katia located a larger apartment for us within the walls and we can't wait to return. Our love of Italy has grown, with this being our 8th trip but the first to Panicale and Umbria. Thanks to Katia for helping to make it so special!
Well, here we are again! Another wonderful 2 months staying in 'The Artisan's House'! This is our third year in this lovely apartment. Our fifth year in Panicale, and not the last. We feel so lucky to come back to 'our second home' here in Umbria.
And it does feel like home…This apartment has all you need to become a real part of the village. We enjoyed entertaining friends on many occasions. It was fun cooking and setting the table with plates, glasses, flowers, etc. Good times had by all!
The location of the apartment is less than a minutes walk to the main piazza where you will find everything from an espresso to gifts for folks back home. Markets, bakery, bars, fabulous restaurants, gift shop, butcher…even a barber and hairdresser! Panicale has all you can ask for…including spectacular views of Lago Trasimeno.
The location of the town could not be better…Away from it all, yet conveniently close to Chiusi train station. You can be in Florence or Rome in about an hour and a half. We do recommend a car, though…there is so much to see within an hour's drive.
Our wonderful hostess, Katia, has become a friend over the years we have visited. She is always ready to help answer questions about the town and surrounding area. She knows everything about the area, and takes pride in her region. She is super easy to work with, and we have never had a problem with her as a property manager. She is the best. Her english is great, too, which is always helpful!
We have had many special times here in Panicale, and we will return as soon as we can. Thumbs way up for both 'The Artisan's House' and Katia!!
Thanks, again Katia & Massimo…We can't wait to see you all again!
