Overview

About the property

Podere Molinaccio is a luxury stone farmhouse only 2 km away from the quaint medieval hill town of Panicale.

This charming 19th century villa offers its guests a breathtaking view over Trasimeno Lake and the Panicale hills and it is the ideal location for those who wish to enjoy total privacy.

The property includes 3 acres of terraced olive groves, while the famous little village itself, with its shops, restaurants and open air market can be reached in just 15 minutes on foot along a lane that passes through woods of oak and chestnut, a stream, and up past a magnificent Renaissance church on the outskirts of village.

Podere Molinaccio is a great "home base" to explore both Umbria and eastern Tuscany, and Panicale is very centrally located: 90 minutes south by train is Rome, with Orvieto and other hill towns along the way. Just over 100 minutes north by train is Florence.

By car, you can easily drive to Cortona, Perugia, Assisi, Chiusi, Città della Pieve, Deruta, Montefanco and Montepulciano, as well as the impressive nearby Castiglione del Lago fortress and Trasimeno Lake with its unique islands and many sporting, dining and cultural activities.

4 km from Podere Molinaccio is the famous Lamborghini Golf Club, a 9-holes golf course created by Ferruccio Lamborghini on his estate between Panicale and the shores of Trasimeno Lake, with an horse riding stables in the vicinity.

The property has its own fully private swimming pool with fabulous views, where guests can relax on the sunloungers by the pool, and cook on the barbecue for dinner alfresco.

On the first floor of the villa, accesses through a separate and independent entrance with an original stone staircase, there are 4 double bedrooms with 4 ensuite full bathrooms with shower, equipped kitchen, including a living room with an original open fireplace.

Beautiful, quiet Panicale!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in Podere Molinaccio in Panicale. 2 families with total 4 adults and 4 kids 5-10 years old. The apartment is big, clean and beautifully refurbished. What we enjoyed most was the location. The house is located in the middle of a field. It is close to Lake Trasimeno and to picturesque villages like Panicale, Città della Pieve, Castiglione del Lago, etc and also close to a food shop and ice cream bar. The piazza in Panicale is beautiful and the kids loved to bath in the Lake Trasimeno. The pool outside the house is also clean and great! We spent one day on an antique market, the kids went horse riding and we had some relaxing days by the pool.

The owner Chiara treated us like royals and she would do anything for us. The last night she invited us to a farewell dinner with live music and local food. Thanks Chiara!
