Enchanting 6bed Villa Gioiella on the Umbria Tuscany border

Villa -
6 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 13
Gioiella, Castiglione del Lago, Province of Perugia, Umbria
Smack-bam in the middle of the Tuscan wine-lands of Montepulciano, a pleasant drive from Florence and Rome, 15minutes from Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by the Umbrian countryside, you have food, wine, history and art oozing at you from every corner!

From Villa Gioiella you can enjoy best of Tuscany, the best of Umbria from a beautiful and comfortable three storey 18th century 'Casa Padronale.'
Nestled in the sweet rolling hills of Italy’s green heart, is the enchanting village of Gioiella. Depending on who you ask “Gioiella” means little gem- or little joy. Either way it sums it up perfectly.

The spacious self-catering villa is ideal for friend and/or family groups. There is separate two bedroom penthouse apartment with self contained kitchen, living and dining so there is plenty of SPACE for everyo...

About the neighbourhood
Gioiella is a hamlet on the border of Umbria and Tuscany with friendly local people that you will meet at Bar Joy. There is a local shop with delicious selection of deli food as well as all the necessities. Larger supermarkets can be found 15mins away in the medieval town of Castiglione del Lago, voted one of Italy's most beautiful villages, jutting out on a peninsular into the lake. There are beaches for swimming, sailing and windsurfing there too that are safe for children and warm. Regular ferries depart from Castiglione and Tuoro-sul-Trasimeno to two of the three gorgeous island in the lake. On Isola Maggiore there is a fishing village with houses dating from the 14th century. St. Francis himself slept here in 1211. Horseback riding is nearby. The 9-hole Lamborghini GOLF club is 20... more
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Rome : 200.0 km
Railway: Chiusi: 15.0 km
Villa Gioiella can be reached by flying to the Italian international airports in Rome, Pisa, Florence or Perugia. A car is necessary and I recommend hiring at the airport. It is also possible to catch the train to Chiusi Chicano Terme or Castiglione del Lago and hire from there. Pisa International, Florence Airport Airport and Perugia are served by many budget airlines. Chiusi and Castiglione have direct trains from Florence and Rome. Taxis are available in front of Chiusi station. Hertz is across the road. I will send DIRECTIONS BY CAR but simply Take the Autostrada del Sole highway (A1). From Rome or Florence: exit at the Chiusi-Chinciano terme toll-gate follow signs to Chiusi. Then after Chiusi follow Castiglione del Lago, then Gioiella is sign posted.
